Bare and Beautiful

Today I felt like wearing very little makeup. I brought out some of my favorite products to create a “no-makeup” makeup look, and I’m actually very happy with it!

In today’s day and age, most women strive to create that flawless, effortless look, as if they are the rarest of creatures….a natural beauty. (Not a unicorn.)

Only a few of us are successful.Image

This is my basic everyday look this summer. It’s simple, it’s clean, and has the right amount of polish.

I just love the look of luminous skin, glossy pink lips, and dark lashes…it’s a perf combo! 😀

Here are the products I used:

Elf Tinted Moisturizer in “Nude”

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in #10

Revlon Nearly Naked Powder in “Fair Clair”

Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara

MAC Lipstick in “Hot Gossip”

MAC Lipglass in “Wonderstruck”

Okay, I have to admit, this is the least amount of makeup I’ve wore in a long time. But my skin needed a break from all the heavy stuff…it was clogging my pores and making my skin look so tired! 

A lot of girls my age wear a ton of heavy makeup. You’ve probably seen the Twitter-pics, the Facebook profiles, the Instagram selfies. The thick, caky foundation, the lumpy, clumpy mascara, heavy liner, or bronzer. Makeup that makes them look worse instead of better, older instead of younger.

I think at any age under 40, GO AS BARE AS POSSIBLE. You are fresh, youthful, and beautiful. Show it off while you can!!

Product Of The Week!

Hey my honey-bunnies.

Here’s a product I’ve been using a looooooot and wanted to show y’all’s. It’s probably my all-time favorite MAC Lipstick, tied SUPER closely with “Brave” and “MAC Red”.

And the product of the week is……. *drumroll*

HOT GOSSIP!!! Whooooooooo! Hot Gossip, you go, girl!

I had this in a few previous posts, but I just needed to share it again. I’ve been wearing the HECKness out of this, fo sho!

I mean…it’s gorgeous. It’s a warm pink with mild shimmer, that can look only slightly cool in some lighting. It’s not “Barbie”, but some ladies say that it makes them feel like a hooker. To me, it’s not too much for everyday, in fact, it’s pure perfection! It’s such a sweet, candy-like color, that’s my signature for day and (sometimes) night!

Plus, F.Y.I, the shimmer TOTALLY does not look at all frosty. In fact, it’s far from frosty. The finish is more creamy and glossy (it’s a Cremesheen), and the staying power is pretty good! But I love to pull it out in public anyhow, so people ask what I’m wearing and I can totally fan-girl over it.

0Aaaand here’s it on meh lips. See? It’s glossy-ish!

It smells great, too, like vanilla cupcakes, unicorn farts, and happiness.

What’s your fave MAC lipstick? :}
