Highlighting and Contouring has been a major beauty trend over the past couple of years. It has always been around and has always been in the industry, but we have celebrity makeup artist and major beauty gurus that helped blow up this trend. When we think of highlight and contour we all automatically think Anastasia Beverly Hills! They have come out with major super affordable pallets of great makeup quality. I have to give it to them before they ventured into other categories of the beauty industry they were only known as the “Goddest of Brows”. I have not been able to get my hands on the latest pallet, but do have few to work with.
I love this pallet because it gives you that sun kiss summer glow all year long. I feel this one is more suited for someone who has been highlighting for a while. This pallet sparkles a lot . It maybe a little bit to chalky and glittery for a bigger , but over all I LOVE it. You can apply this on your body for a glow.
I personally love this pallet and would aim for a bigger to start using because the colors are so soft . I love how they just sit well on the skin without them being to much or to little.Remember it’s all up to you how much you pick up.
Ok so Sun Dipped is one of my favorites because it has more of a bronze contour effect. Great for a biggenir and offers a variety of different shades to create different looks. Remember like I mention above it all depends on how much you decide to pick up.
Finally the brush to get for all this wonderful highlight is Anastasia Beverly Hills A23 brush. This brush picks up the right amount and is small enough to reach creases and areas where you only want to apply the high light without feeling like you dipped your whole face .
If you are looking for a mask to clear your pores and tighten I recommend using “Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask”. This mask will deep clean pores and tighten them as well. As soon as you wash it off your skin will be left feeling smooth, bright, and clean. This mask solves all problems of dull looking skin, oiliness, and visible pores. The mask is known to flush away toxins, dirt,and debris that clog up the pores.If you tend to have super oily skin you are familiar with the debris that clogs up pores. You know those annoying white heads that build up, and if you pop them they tend to leave a visible open pore. I tend to have this problem , but so far using this mask twice or once a week has helped reduce any clogged pores. I like to use this mask during the night after I wash away makeup with a cleanser. After I apply this mask on damp skin and leave it for 10 minutes as it hardens. I follow up by washing with warm water and massaging the mask away. I love the after feeling! This mask contains bamboo charcoal that draw out deep impurities.It also contains china clay that is known to absorb environmental toxins and dissolves impurities.
Surprisingly I loved this all in one cleanser best drugstore makeup removers I have used. It is not drying and removes every drop of makeup. I personally love using a face wash after, but you can get away by just using this without a drop of water.The key to really effectively removing makeup is by shaking it and using a cotton path to swipe away every single drop of makeup on your face. Make sure that if you pick up a bottle of this cleanser make sure to get the one for water proof makeup. It will certainly remove the toughest of mascara and reddest of red lipstick.
If you are looking for an instant glow try Origins Original Skin Retexturizing mask with Rose Clay. Not only does it smell rosie ,but it will help vanish any visible pores.This mask will deeply help clean skin while refining skin’s texture and restoring skin’s natural radiance. This amazing mask has mediterranean rose clay, Canadian willow herb, and exfoliating jojoba beads. Don’t worry the jojoba beads are so gentle that will still deep clean your skin. To apply gently wash your skin and pat dry. Add a decent amount of this mask and massage onto skin allowing the product to sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed rinse off with warm water and apply moisturizer.
If you are like many people whos skin becomes dryer once the temperature drops. I suggest you use Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm by Kiehl’s. This moisture balm will keep your skin hydrated during the freezing weather. It is known that when this moisuture balm was created it was tested in cold weathers to see if it was effective. The moisterizer is so gentle and comfortable to the skin. It is also very rich in creaming without the streaky olines that we find after using an over moisterizing cream. Your skin will absorb the moisture and help retain skins natural moisture. This product is formulated with Edelweiss Flower extract. This extract is known to thrive in high altitudes of the Swiss Alps according to the Kiehl’s website. What I enjoy about this balm is not only does it provide 24 hour hydration ,but it helps strengthen the skin’s barrier to look in hydration.
These are a few of my favorite beauty essentials my. The first is my favorite Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 6.25. The second item I enjoy is MAC MATTE in Kinda Sexy.My current fragrance obsession is Burberry perfume which is very light essence of green-oriental blend of fruits, sweet nutty essences, and soothing amber, vanilla, and Tonka bean.Is an essential for anty girl who wants to feel fresh and sexy.
If you want to give your face a refreshing wake up feeling I urge you to try this coffee mask by Lush. Coffee masks are all over instagram, but with so many options it maybe hard to pick one. I chose to try this mask because it is gentle enough to use on the face and body. It helps detox and exfoliate the skin from all impurities.
I’ll admit at first this masked seemed a little messy, but you will fall in love with it. Be prepare to have little bit of a mess when you wash it off. The benefit of this mask is that you can use it in the shower to exfoliate any body part. I used it on the back of my arms were I develop a little bit of dead skin. In order to have my skin looking smooth and glowy I use this in the morning for about 10 minutes twice a week. Prior to applying I wash my face and then pat dry. I massage the mask for about a minute and let it sit for 10 minutes. I later rinse off with warm water . Hope you enjoy this post loves and please comment!
