THE GUERLAIN GLOW

The glowis something were all after when it comes to our skin. Those of us who are more fair with cool undertones go for that hint of pearly goodness, and us deeper skinned gals usually aim for that golden glow. But no matter what your complexion, we all want that lit-from-within look!

A glowing appearance comes in two forms: The first is from leading a healthy, active lifestyle and really taking care of your body, and the second is with a set of killer products! Personally, Ive made some lifestyle changes recently, including making nutrition a priority. One big change Ive also made is hitting the gym again; I got myself a trainer and Im back at it! In just two weeks, Im already noticing such a change in how I feel and how I look. I havent worked out in a few years, and in such a short time Im already feeling so much stronger and seeing that lively glow come back to my skin. Im feeling re-energized and my skin is reflecting the positive change!

GET NAKED

(The gold freckles are from Mr. Kate.)

For me, the second most important element to my beauty routine (after stellar skincare, of course) is my base. My foundation, concealer, powder, highlight… All the things that create the flawless face. Not surprisingly, I’ve searched high and low in search of the best of the best! In the last few months I’ve been on a new routine that leaves my skin feeling exactly how it should: Naked.

CHOCOLATE LOVERS, UNITE!

_J5A3318

Mmmm, mm! I sit here entirely too excited to write up this post. But who wouldn’t be when the topic is chocolate?!

If you’ve been following my YouTube channel, you likely know that the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is my absolute favorite. I’ve been using it for a very long time and haven’t strayed from it simply because it’s the perfect matte bronzer. It has just the right tone and it’s velvety soft to blend. But, of course, we come in all different shades, and though the Chocolate Soleil is a nice color for most complexions, it’s definitely not 100% suitable for all.
