There's very few skin care or makeup products lately that I love immediately. What can I say? I'm about to be 40 and nowadays it takes more than flashy packaging and a 20 something year old influencer trying to convince me that if I buy whatever they're posting about that I'll be able to look like them if I purchase said product. Well I am ecstatic to say I am in love with Ole Henriksens Banana primer 🍌 ! It doesn't smell like said fruit but it does have a nice scent but if you don't like scented you might want to skip this but you'd be crazy to. It fades fast anyway. This would be perfect for no makeup days which lately is pretty much everyday lol. Your skin is left with a luminous glow that stays even after you apply your foundation. I laugh as I post this bc I posted just in the last day or two about a L'oreal product I use as a primer even though it technically isn't one. I still will use that one but this Is a primer and works perfectly. My new Holy Grail foundation looks even better than it usually does! I no longer feel the need to try any more primers. I'm good with this one! OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Face Primer

Product Mentioned
Ingredient spotlight: Vitamin C
Now a days you can take your pick of products from most common serums, essences, moisturizer, toners and even in primers and other types of make up. It is just one of those powerful ingredients that are great for all skin types. If you want glows skin, there’s a super ingredient that you should add to your skincare regimen, Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects your skin from free radicals and all environmental aggressors. Layered a serum or a moisturizer with this powerful ingredients under a sunblock, it will give you double the protection. Vitamin C also helps with lightening any dark spots you already have, by reducing “the activity of the enzyme that leads to the production of pigment, but it also addresses the existing discoloration,” —Dr Dennis Gross. Obviously, over the counter serums and tonics will not work as well as a prescription with hydroquinone or Retin-A at erasing scars and spots, but it will help even and brighten your skin overall. According to Dr. Gross during his interview with Self.com, when shopping for a Vitamin C to boost your skin routine, look for keywords like L-ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbyl phosphate (which are both water soluble), as well as ascorbyl palmitate and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (which are lipid soluble), on the ingredients list. Because skin is consist of both lipid and watery layers, the perfect product/ product that has the best absorption will have a balanced mix of fat-soluble and water-soluble ingredients. Disclaimer: please use vitamin c responsibly. With everything in life, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. So find your balance. Please note, I do not use the combination of these products in one day or everyday. LUMENE - Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum 30ml $12-$25 depends on size and retail. Based with pure artic spring water and two types o hyaluronic acids this serum is super emollient and hydrating. Love love love how gentle this formula is. LUMENE - Nordic C Valo Glow Lumenessence Brightening Beauty Lotion $14-$18 A gorgeous lightweight toning essence with pure artic water, hyaluronic acids and vitamin c rich berry complex. I love that it is gentle and not drying. bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer $21-$24. This has been my day/ night cream depending on my mood and what serums I’m using. Sinks in the skin well and has great texture. OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Face Primer $38. A gorgeous and luminous primer for all skin types. I love how youthful it makes my skin looks — a Dewey glow without being oily. #Meebak - Vitamin C & Cica Serum[products]#[FiveStars] $24.

Banana Bright face primer Review
The @olehenriksen banana bright face primer✨ This primer has a very subtle glow. I used it underneath my medium coverage @marcjacobsbeauty shameless foundation, the finish was beautiful. If you like that dewy wet glow, this is definitely for you. The foundation lasted relatively well during the day, didn’t move or wear off. If you have an oily T zone, I advise you to wear a pore filling primer where needed. The banana primer exaggerated the appearance of my pores and didn’t compliment my complexion when I wore it alone. It was more shiny than dewy. when I used it underneath my full coverage @fentybeauty foundation, it added a tiny bit of luminosity to my skin, but didn’t look nearly as good as under the shameless foundation. If you’re a full coverage person, i advice you to mix one pump of the banana primer with your foundation. Doing so makes a noticeable difference in your skin’s overall radiance. Pro tip: use your fingers and apply some of the primer on the high points of your face. It’s the only highlighter you’ll ever need for a subtle healthy looking glow. This product smells like the truth serum. If you’re sensitive to that scent, you might want to sample it before purchasing it. Otherwise, it blends well with the fragrances present in my other face products. OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Face Primer

I actually thoroughly enjoy this line, its hydrating but not at all greasy which is great for someone like myself who gets oily throughout the day. The concealer (didn’t include it in this boomerang) is really nice coverage and dries down to a nice skin like finish. The tinted moisturizer isn’t my favorite and that’s only because Iite difficult for me to cover my hyperpigmentation and even if I spot conceal it shows through and also shifts a little when I apply this. It’s great if you just want a nice blur to the skin but not if you’re trying for conceal in any way. I recently tried the PF foundation (not in the boomerang either) and that formula is just as bomb as the concealer! Dries down beautifully and does a great job at covering up without a dry/matte finish. Its definitely great for daily wear and has a nice glow to it and I love that. A glow makes your skin look youthful and much more alive, especially when you’re exhausted LOL. Overall a great collection just not so much the tinted moisturizer.

How to achieve flawless base makeup ☀️☀️
How to achieve flawless base makeup ☀️☀️
During the summer months, I rarely wear makeup. And when I do I prefer it to feel as light as possible! My preferred makeup look is dewy and glowy as opposed to matte, so I use all cream products for my base. For my primer, I have been using BECCA - Backlight Priming Filter Face Primer . Honestly, I could wear this product alone and be happy with it! It provides a natural shimmer and slight coverage and really makes you glow! After applying this primer I apply my Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint with a damp beautyblender - Classic Makeup Sponge Pink . I have absolutely RAVED on this product before but it really is the perfect face product for summer. The coverage is light to medium, and doesn’t feel like you are actually wearing makeup at all. It hides any redness I have while still allowing my freckles to peek through! These two products help me achieve a natural, glowing look for summer that I have been loving! #CheriePartner

New base makeup! NARS / e.l.f. / australis
Let me begin this by saying that I am never not looking for the perfect foundation/primer combo. There’s just something about a flawless base that makes me giddy with excitement. So, naturally this week’s haul consists of two base products and a cream contour palette. I finally picked up the NARS Radiant Longwear Foundation (which BTW? Best decision, ever!) as well as the e.l.f putty primer everyone is raving about. On a last minute whim I also grabbed the Australis AC ONTOUR highlighting & contouring palette because I was after a cool cream contour shade to add to my collection. I have yet to leave a full review on these products. I want to really give them a chance, so I think I’ll test them out for a couple of weeks before jumping on here with my thoughts.

#ad #cheriepartner This product was on my wishlist for well over a year before I finally took the plunge. I had very high expectations due to the price tag and they were met AND exceeded! This is such a great multipurpose product. You can use it as a glowy primer (I love to do that when I’m wearing a light coverage base), you can mix it into your foundation to add a little glow and/or you can use it as a highlighter after your base is applied! I have applied this over setting powder and powder blush and bronzers and have NEVER had an issue with it disturbing the product underneath it. It makes my skin look dewy, healthy and glowy, it lasts all day and words cannot express just how much I love it!! It is 100% worth the money in my opinion. I have the shade 2 Light, which is described as a neutral peachy beige for fair skin. Swipe for a swatch. It’s a little icy for my faux summer tan, but any other time of the year it’s the perfect highlighter shade for my light skin tone and my preferences. If you have been wanting to try it, I can’t recommend it enough! Buy it and thank me later! 😁🙌🏼 #charlottetilbury #hollywoodflawlessfilter #dewyglow #dewyskin #holygrailproduct #flawlessfilter

The Perfect “No-Makeup” Makeup Product
The Perfect “No-Makeup” Makeup Product
I’m not really one for foundation. I usually use a very light foundation if I do wear some — i.e. The Ordinary’s serum foundation. I’m unfortunately a “face toucher” so I can’t be bothered with face make up very often. I usually slap on concealer and bronzer in terms of face make up. With that being said, I’ve been loving the Graydon products I currently have and when I saw that they had a tinted moisturizer primer I had to try it. I read so many good reviews! GRAYDON - Face Glow For 40 mL this cost $24 CAD. I find I only use a tiny bit so the 40 mLs will last me a while. 🍁(PS it’s on sale. Regularly priced at $46 CAD)🍁 After my skincare I’ll pop this onto my face like I would any normal moisturizer. I use such a small amount and find it blends in beautifully. You can use a sponge or a brush but I’m lazy so I just use my fingers lol. This is perfect for a “no makeup” makeup look. The tint is gorgeous and gives me a healthy glow/complexion. Your skin looks radiant without looking like you’re wearing anything! I think it could work on most skin tones if you also wanted to just apply it as a highlight to your cheek bones or brow bones, or even under makeup as an actual primer. My concealer sits nicely over top of this and doesn’t cake or crease :) And with my bronzer I get a nice sun-kissed glow. I haven’t noticed any break outs, which is always good! 👌🏻 Haha! Why It’s Amazing: + It firms skin and improves elasticity with semi-precious smithsonite +Your skin glows with mineral-rich sustainably sourced mica +It brightens your complexion with ellagic acid rich raspberry seed oil +It minimizes the appearance of dark circles and spots with nutrient rich spirulina +It soothes your skin with aloe vera juice and zinc-rich pumpkin seed oil +It renews your look with skin nurturing sea buckthorn seed oil +It shields your face against the elements with non-nano zinc +It protects your skin from environmental stressors with rich buriti oil 100% recommend ❤️

Makeup mistakes: choosing the wrong shade
Makeup mistakes: choosing the wrong shade
I spent the longest time not really understanding (or caring) about makeup, especially when it came to choosing a face makeup product. I like very light coverage, but was having trouble finding something that suited me. I finally settled on It Cosmetics CC Cream. This is a rather full-coverage product as far as CC creams go. For the longest time I was wearing this product in a shade that was about two shades too dark for my natural skin tone. If I had just fake tanned it looked okay, but any other time it was WAY too dark, especially against my neck and chest. I was just really lazy and did not want to take the time to go to a store in-person and figure out which shade was right for me. Once I finally did, it was a total game changer. My whole face looked so much better, and my makeup looks were so much more natural. So the moral of the story is, take that extra time to find your correct shade! It makes all the difference! #CheriePartner
