with some new faves. Lets start with skincare. I’m loving Algenist Skincare’s AA Barrier Serum. This antioxidant rich serum is designed to defent the skin barrier against pollutants and environmental aggressors. It uses Alguronic Acid, Niacinamide, Phloretin, and Ergothioneine. It improves skins appearance and uneveness. I love the texture of it. It feels luxurious and absorbs well.

My new makeup finds start with a cult favorite foundation. I now understand why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation is so popular. This 24 hour wear, full coverage, Matte foundation really delivers. It leaves skin looking fresh and flawless yet somehow remains lightweight on the skin. It is heat resistant, and waterproof. There are over 55 shades to choose from.

Taking things to the ever important brows. For the last few years I’ve stuck with NYX’s micro brow pencil. I think it’s better than its expensive competitors. I’m now following it with their Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. It is a clear gel that tames brows and gives a fuller effect. It’s not sticky and stays comfortable all day. So play with some new finds for 2021, I won’t tell last year’s products you’re cheating 😉 

and be good your skin, with Beyou Skincare. The entire brand is built around “self-love and empowering ambitious people to be themselve”. A part of the proceeds from every order goes towards funding women’s education in underrepresented industries.  The line is clean, cruelty free, paraben free, and phthalate free, and helps protect from blue light damage. I have been loving their Caffeine Eye Cream. It is fast absorbing and designed to firm and brighten the eye area. It uses Hyaluronic Acid tot hydrate, and caffeine to revive and illuminate the eye area. It is great for all skin types. So get and give with Beyou Skincare, no one needs to know how late you went to sleep ;)….

Everyone loves Glow Recipe, because the brand is high quality, and fun! At Glow Recipe they believe “what’s not in the formula is just as important as what is.” The entire line is clean, cruelty free, free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. I have been using their Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask. It uses encapsulated retinol, coffeeberry, and niacinamide to moisturize, brighten, de-puff and fight fine lines. The use of encapsulated retinol allows less irritation for the delicate eye area. It releases slowly so the benefits work longer. You can use it during the day, but you must layer sunscreen over it. I notice an instant brightening when I apply it. This rich creamy lotion feels luxurious, not heavy. So put on some Avocado Melt, and get more out of your bedtime ;)….

Brighten-Eyes
to use. A Method skincare by Tina Alster MD. The line uses “scientifically-proven ingredients at optimal concentrations to deliver visible skin improvement. Each product is formulated with ingredients that have an excellent safety profile and are stabilized without sacrificing efficacy.” I have been using the Brighten Eyes eye cream and H2 Biome moisturizer. The eye cream is lightweight and soothing. It softens lines with a non irritating micro-encapsulated all-trans retinol. Rosemary, green tea, and ellagic acid provide protection to the sensitive eye area skin. H2 Biome is a probiotic, hydrating cream that balances skin and reduce inflammation. So get with A Method, it’s Doctor’s orders….

Famed hairstylist. Peter Lamas has created a brand of natural, chemical free, vegan, effective products. The products are formulated with herbs, vitamins and botanicals. I love the Youth Revival 5 Oil Hair Treatment Mask. It replenishes and restores hair. The mask is made with a blend of 5 extraordinary oils; Abyssinian oil, Baobab oil, Mongongo oil, Broccoli Seed oil, and Kukui Nut oil. It also contains vitamins, fortifying peptides, omega fatty acids, and antioxidants. Your hair is left healthy, shiny, and strong. I have also been using their Lash Masque Natural Lash Builder, Tint & Conditioner. I use it on days that I don’t wear makeup. It is not a mascara, but rather a conditioner that darkens and separates lashes. It is made with natural extracts, and has no harsh chemicals. You can wear it alone or under mascara to boost length and thickness. So take care of your hair with Peter Lamas, and keep getting it..

but you better catch up, because I have been using Vegamour’s VegaBrow Volumizing Serum. The brand is known for their long lash making VegaLash. They took their lash knowledge and made a powerful brow product. It is safe, vegan, cruelty free, and effective. The key is the Polyphytobase Complex with active phytomolecules, zinc, and biotin. In about 3 weeks I noticed fuller, healthier brows. Vegamour believes in making “powerful plant based products with clinical efficacy and real visible results.” The natural ingredients are sustainably sourced and ethically responsible. So you can feel good about your product, as well as those bangin brows…

Run, don’t walk, to your nearest Loreal Paris selling store and get yourself their new Instant Lash-Lift Effect Intense Lengthening Mascara. This is my new favorite! The formula is amazing and the brush is genius. It is “inspired by the makeup artist hack of bending the mascara wand for added control and ease of application.” The wand can be used in 2 positions, straight or bent. I go over my lashes with it straight and then bend the wand to really get in there and get lift. The formula glides easily, and there is zero clumping. So get amazing mascara, and get it instantly….

with Fountain of Truth age defying, clean beauty line. The line uses a Super Bio-Ferment Complex, which is their way of using effective fermented botanical ingredients. Fermented ingredients can be broken down into smaller molecules which can better penetrate the skin. Fountain of Truth was created by Giuliana Rancic after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted a completely clean line that would also effectively fight aging and other skin concerns. I received three of their products from influenster. I love the skin nutrition booster kit. It comes with three facial serums to treat your needs. B: Bright is for an outer glow and uses vitamin c, B: Hydrated is full of hydrating ingredients for softness, and B: Calm is to soothe stressed skin. I also love the Magic Wand Sculpting Eye Roller. It is a weightless eye cream that uses probiotic derived ingredients, caffeine, and green tea. The wand has cooling rollerballs to stimulate circulation. The Fresh Face Foaming cleanser will remove makeup and dirt, while keeping skin soft.  You can find the line at Ulta. So get with Fountain of Truth and let the magic of clean beauty be your truth…

for your life. With the best primer on the market. The point of using primer is to even skin’s surface, and blur the look of fine lines and pores. It also helps your makeup glide on smoother. I have been using Heir Atelier Primer for face, eyes, and lips. They call their primers the “anti-primers” because they do not work like others. Other primers can be heavy and sit on the surface of skin as well as being full of silicones. Heir Atelier considers their primers to be skincare. They are designed to moisturize and nourish skin, while creating a smooth canvas. The line is lightweight and keeps makeup in its place. The eye primer is a peach tint and absorbs oil to lock your look in place. The face primer is the perfect demi-matte, and the lip primer is ultra conditioning. So lock your look in place, and get going…
