Glowing skin

Feb 28th, 2018 Uncategorized brittany2143 3 min read

I feel like the trend now is having the “no makeup” makeup look. That supple, glowing, blemish free face. Ya- if it were that easy. Even though I knew foundations were pore clogging I loved the end result it gave me. After wearing it for a few hours, I used to get stubborn tiny little bumps (closed comodomes)  and then pick my face (THE worst…

Kensington is ONE! I told my husband, “We don’t need a big party, she totally wont remember, we have enough going on, lets just do something small.”  Ya right! When the time got closer, I wanted to throw a party and celebrate our girl. I originally thought I should hire a party planner so I wasn’t all stressed and then I was like I got…

Current Foundations

Until I find that holy grail skincare product that reverses all the awful tanning I used to do to my poor skin, I still have the unevenness, freckles, and old age spots. So I like a good CC cream or foundation to even me out but still appear natural. Right now I am loving Clinique Even better makeup with SPF 15. This oil-free foundation evens…

I went on a whole new skincare routine because sometimes your skin gets used to stuff and I felt I needed a change. My hormones were out of whack from pregnancy, breast feeding and climate changes every other week so I thought about my skincare goals and started from there. I always want to rid of any blemishes (obvi), get my dryness under control, tone…

Baby must have

I know not all of my readers have babies or already have grown children and are past this stage but I can only hope this helps anyone that plans on having children in the future as much as it has helped me. This carseat/stroller in one is a life changer. Kensington has been on 18 flights so far at only 7 months old, and I…

The 3 favs

So wanted to start by reintroducing my favorite three products. Ones that are without a doubt always in my makeup and travel bag. Have dark circles or blemishes you want to hide? BOING! You’re in luck. Best concealer. Creamy light consistency but covers pretty much anything. I like to apply it with my fingers and it blends great without a beauty blender. If I am rushing…

Warning!!!! This post might be a rant, I am on a long plane ride across the country, again. I am basically writing like a journal to you all. So just to catch you up. We are living in California, but this time in the Bay area. Cali is where I first started this blogging journey a couple years ago, that was when I had TOO…

Need a summer BB, CC, and tinted moisturizer in one?!

I have the perfect product for you! The past couple months I have been using Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue- tinted hydrating gel cream; instead of foundations. When its extra hot and I don’t want to sweat and block all my pores this is a great alternative and still has medium coverage. I use the shade ginger which is a tad dark for me but it gives…

Face Masks

Hey girls! Wanted to share some recent face masks that keep my skin glowing. 🙂 The first is Fresh’s Instant Black Tea Perfecting Mask. Black tea ferment is an advanced antioxidant that helps to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals.  The mask is of a whipped texture, almost felt like I was rubbing mashed potatoes on my face. It was cooling and refreshing and left my skin so…

Want to smell sophisticated, sexy, and inviting? I have two new perfume scents that I am obsessed with! My husband bought me the first, Black Opium, By Yves Saint Laurent; because he loved it so much. It is a very unique perfume and both sensual and sweet at the same time. My second perfume review is Valentina by Valentino. We had some time to kill…
