A Stunning Makeup Collection That Will Make You Swoon

Being a momma in my late 30’s, it is hard to find the time for a little self care let alone feel beautiful. Yet sometimes you need to stop and take a moment (or an hour) to give yourself a quick makeover for a confidence boost. It’s amazing how a cute outfit and a little bit of makeup can help a girl feel extra special.

Find your glow

Your perfect look starts with your skincare. After cleansing, you want to use a toner such as the Press & Glow from Medik8. Since I received the toner, I’ve incorporated it in with my other Medik8 products

Medik8 Press & Glow

Before even cleansing, you can remove your makeup with Medik8’s Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil. Then follow up with your Press & Glow, serums, moisturizers, and retinol if you’re using it. 

I use a few pumps of the Press & Glow for my neck and face twice a day! My skin is looking bright and feels smooth. The toner does not dry out my skin or feel sticky, so I can easily apply my serums and moisturizers without issues. 

Lips & Cheeks

When it comes to lips, I am more of a lip balm and sometimes lip gloss kinda gal! I was sent the Lip Pencil Plus in Carnation Pink and the Lasting Cheekcolor in Mauve Magic

Merle Norman Lip Pencil Plus in Carnation Pink

Both products are beautiful and I ended up giving them to my neighbor who loves makeup just as much as I do. She immediately tried the Lip pencil! I love that it’s one versatile product as a lip color and lip liner! I knew I wouldn’t use the lip pencil, so I am glad my neighbor will use it! 

Merle Norman Lasting Cheekcolor in Mauve Magic

The Lasting Cheekcolor in Mauve Magic is a beautiful color. I like that these products are perfect for all skin tones. It goes on silky and smooth, fade-resistant, and blends so easily! 

Eyes

I am always looking for new eye shadows to try! Also, I have never tried the Merle Norman brand, so I was really excited to try their shadows and shadow sticks! 

Merle Norman Eye shadow

I am so excited to receive three shades including Sky, Orchid (limited edition), and Desert Bronze (limited edition). Of course, all three colors are beautiful and I think they work perfectly with my skin tone. I can attest that the colors last, go on smooth, and stay in place all day, even through my sweaty workouts! They are every crease/smudge-resistant! 

Desert Bronze is my favorite color as it is a neutral and it adds a little sparkle to my look! Sky and Orchid are perfect when I want a beautiful color to my look! 

I was also sent shadow sticks which match perfectly with the three eye shadows I was sent! 

Merle Norman Shadow Stick

I was sent limited edition shades in Misty, Denim, and Bubbly! All three colors are so pretty and last all day, even through my sweaty workouts! I also like that they blend easily when needed. 

Misty matches with Orchid.

Denim matches with Sky. 

Bubbly matches with Desert Bronze.

I use the colors together and create my own look!

Tried-And-True Cruelty Free Makeup Products That Are Worth Your Money

When it comes to makeup, I am picky. I started looking at ingredients when my son was born. Whether it was household cleaning products and even my own makeup products. For many years, I stuck with natural mineral makeup. Now, I focus on cruelty free and natural beauty!

We tried a brand that offers tried-and-true makeup products that are worth your money!

I’ve seen OFRA Cosmetics everywhere online. OFRA Cosmetics is also available at ULTA Beauty too. I only had one of their products on hand and enjoy using it. It’s one of their highlighters! Since I am fairly new to their brand, I am thankful they offered to send me a variety of products. I gave them the foundation colors I use from another brand and they sent me two foundations to try.

Add Some Glam to Your Holiday Makeup

Add Some Glam to Your Holiday Makeup

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Party season has arrived, and celebrations abound. With so many different events to attend, I want to look fresh, festive, and fabulous. Helping to add some glam to my holiday makeup looks is the Happy Together Collection from Jane Iredale.

Jane Iredale Happy Together Collection

As a huge supporter of this cruelty-free, clean beauty brand, I’m always excited to try new Jane Iredale products. I absolutely adore the festive fairies, fluttering butterflies and sparkling snow themed packaging of this holiday collection.

The Happy Together Limited Edition Collection includes the Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit, Dance with Me Refillable Compact, Kiss and Tell Lip Stain/Gloss Kit, and Butterfly Bag. All of the products are vegan and gluten-free. The brand was kind enough to send the compact, palette and lip kit to review.

Although I don’t have the Butterfly Bag, I did want to mention that a portion of the sales from this bag benefits SaveOurMonarchs. This non-profit is dedicated to saving the endangered monarch butterflies.

Holiday Makeup – Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Let's Party Palette

When I’m creating my holiday eye looks, I like to play with a little bit of shimmer and color. The Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit lets me do both. The palette features five shimmery Jane Iredale PurePressed shadows, including:

  • Spree – pale pink with subtle shimmer
  • Wing-ding – plum with subtle shimmer
  • Soiree – royal blue with subtle shimmer
  • Shindig – shimmery jade green
  • Hootenanny – shimmer chocolate brown

Holiday Makeup - Jane Iredale Let's Party Palette Swatches

With names like Hootenanny and Wing-ding, it’s hard not to love this beautifully packaged palette. It’s also hard not to like the variety of colors in the palette. The pop of green and blue are pure fun and pair very well with the pink, brown and purple shadows. In addition to the shade options, the shadows are pigmented, long-lasting and crease resistant.  They also contain botanical extracts that soothe and nurture skin. This is ideal for mature lids that can often look crepey.

I had so much fun testing out this palette. I really love the holiday makeup looks I created, from the icy pink with a blue accent to the smoky green and chocolate.

Jane Iredale Refillable Compact

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Dance with Me Compact

One of the most unique aspects of this holiday makeup collection is the Dance with Me refillable compact. I love the fluttery butterflies on the cover. It makes for such a nice gift. Since I already have one of these compacts, I’m going to pass this one on to my niece who’s a butterfly fan.

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Refillable palette demonstration

This compact is designed to hold refills of Jane Iredale bronzers, powders or foundations. I use mine to hold my Warm Peachy Pink Bronzer refill. It’s the perfect on-the-go blush, bronzer, highlighter compact that I can use on my face or eyes.

 

Kiss and Tell Lip Stain/Gloss Kit

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Kiss and Tell Lip Kit

This adorable little set features two lip stains and a shimmer gloss for all your holiday makeup needs.

  • Craving – light salmon stain
  • Fascination – rosy pink stain
  • Crystal – clear shimmer

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Kiss and Tell Swatches

Though I’ve tried lipsticks from Jane Iredale, I had yet to try her stains or glosses. As with everything from the brand, I’m impressed. The stains not only condition and protect my lips but also don’t feather or move.Once you apply Craving or Fascination your good to mingle from event to event.

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Kiss and Tell Lip Swatches

As I mentioned above, there is also a lovely clear, shimmery gloss. You can wear Crystal alone or pair it with the stains. I really like the way the gloss looks with the stains. It adds a little something-something to any lip look. The formula is conditioning, non-tacky, and doesn’t feature any petroleum. Essentially, it’s a gloss that’s also good for your lips so it won’t interfere with all that holiday eating and drinking.

With the Jane Iredale Happy Together Collection, you’ll party hop your way to fabulous holiday makeup looks all season long.

What’s your favorite piece from this collection? Are you holiday party ready?

Travel-Friendly Mineral Makeup

I have been a fan of mineral makeup for years now. I first tried mineral makeup soon after my son was born. I was searching for natural products to use because I was interested in removing chemicals and unwanted ingredients from our household and my beauty products. Back then, mineral makeup came in jars and it usually got all over the place! Now, there are more options when it comes to natural makeup!
