Shine lip gloss with Patricia de Leon’s Sexy Shine Lip Gloss. I have it in Angel. It is the best feeling lipgloss I have ever used. It’s super light, and extremely silky. There is zero stickiness, or oiliness. I don’t feel the need to constantly reapply.  The line is vegan and cruelty free. So pucker up to PDL Cosmetics, and kiss the sticky, heavy, glosses goodbye…

are easy to attain, thanks to Kelley Baker. Kelley is a renowned makeup artist turned brow expert. She has many celebrity clients, including the Kardashians. “A Kelley Baker brow has a very distinctive, natural look. Kelley is a minimalist and a stickler for straight lines. She believes the key to a sleek, natural brow is not overdoing it with the product. Her signature collection of brow products was created to subtly enhance the brows in a soft manner without them looking drawn on.” I love every product I’ve tried of hers. My favorite is the Camo-Light Highlighter Pencil. It is a soft, creamy , gel like pencil. It camouflages and flaws and adds lift to the brow bone. It brightens the eye area with a subtle light affect, not a glitter or shimmer. I recommend getting the Highlighter Smudge Brush to perfectly blend the product. The Brow Defining Pencil is as good, if not better than any one of tried. It is a long wear formula, that glides on easy with and ultra fine tip. The spooly perfectly blends out the pencil for a precise, natural look. Lastly, the Tinted Brow Gel keeps your perfectly done look in place. It volumizes and tames, and is sweatproof for all day long wear. So even if your life is a mess, get with Kelley Baker to get your brows in order!….

new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Pureology. It’s their Strength Cure Superfood Treatment. It’s a fortifying mask designed to strengthen and smooth split ends while preventing further damage. It uses Olive Oil, Goji Berry, and their signature aromatherapy blend. I’ve never had a bad experience with Purology and this mask does not disappoint.

For my skin I’m using Peach & Lilly’s Wild Dew Treatment Essence. This hydrating post cleansing step will improve skin’s radiance while fighting acne. It sinks deep into skin fast, to leave your face ready to drink up your next step. It contains lotus extract, niacinamide, yeast ferment, adenosine, bamboo extract, and radish leaf. It is refreshing and effective.

My latest makeup additon is Essence’s Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I love how small the brush is small to get the perfect application. It has tiny fibers to fill in caps and create fuller more tamed defined brows. 

because they look amazing and are soft and shiny. My new favorite lip products is Locked & Lit from Smith & Cult. It’s a CBD lip balm gives the most perfect, natural, shine and look. It uses hemp derived CBD to soothe and protect. Coconut derived MCT oil provides intense hydration. I have the clear, which is green in the jar, and it gives the most perfect natural lip color boost. I love how long it lasts, as apposed to many balms that seem to dissipate in minutes. So pucker up for Smith & Cult and make your lips luscious…

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 😉 

Bodyography is a clean beauty brand, that infuses their products with beneficial ingredients like antioxidants, superfoods, and minerals. The whole line is cruelty free, paraben free, and gluten free. I have been using their Pro Perfect Foundation Stick, and their Hydrating Mask. The Foundation Stick gives medium to full coverage with a demi-matte finish. It glides on quick and easy for a flawless complexion. I put it on directly to my skin and blend out with a foundation brush. You can play around with multiple sticks to use for contouring and concealing. The foundation is infused with Vitamins C&E and Aloe. The Hydrating Mask uses antioxidant fruit and plant extracts. It hydrates and improves texture to leave you with a healthy glow. Skin is left plump and hydrated. So treat yourself with Bodyography, and let others take note…

I usually like full coverage, matte, foundation. When I want to go a step less than full, with a little luminosity I use Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation. It is stated to give a right after facial glow, and I think that is the perfect description. It uses light diffusing minerals to brighten and minimize pores while resisting oiliness. It is very lightweight and breathable. It contains lots of good for you ingredients to improve your skins texture and health. So lighten up your foundation this summer with Koh Gen Do, and take something off….

and a result with Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Foundation. This is full coverage! Your skin will look flawless, poreless, and matte with this foundation. It is designed to also reduce the appearnace of wrinkles and feel cool on the skin. It includes the CT Defence that is designed to limit exposure of the skin to everyday pollutants. It is sweat proof, humidity proof, water proof and transfer resistant. Flawless also boosts skin’s moisture level. So when you want the most coverage, with the most cutting edge innovations in foundation get with Charlotte Tilbuy. Let them think you woke up like this ;)….

and my lip gloss. I love my 3 Graces lip gloss for the effect, and the messages inscribed on the package. 3 Graces started as a “collaboration between a classically trained portrait artist and skilled makeup artist. The glosses feature beautiful, vibrant pigments infused with their signature lip serum for intense color that gives a radiant shine to your lips.” Each gloss has a positive message written on the package. I use their Pink Nude, and the package reminds me  ‘In Everything Give Thanks’. There are 7 colors to choose from. Your lips will be soft and hydrated, with high shine. So pucker up for 3 Graces and give them lip….

and so is my foundation. I am using Loreal Paris’s Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Lightweight Foundation. Gone are the days of spending big bucks to get a foundation that looks and feels luxurious. Drug store brands have stepped up in a major way. This one lasts with a Matte finish all day and night. It is breathable, waterproof, transfer resistant, and has spf protection. The coverage says medium to full. I find it so be a healthy looking full coverage. It has oil absorbers to resist sweat and water. It comes in 30 shades, so go get your Infallible coverage, and let it last all night….
