Easy Breezy Minimalistic Look ✨
You know your skin is happy & healthy when no filter is needed! 𝒩𝑜 𝒻𝒾𝓁𝓉𝑒𝓇, 𝓃𝑜 𝑒𝒹𝒾𝓉𝒾𝓃𝑔 - just a couple quick iPhone portrait shots. I’m not a huge selfie kind of gal; I prefer to stay behind the camera but I felt put together for a change! I have minimal makeup on - this is an easy breezy routine that will embrace your natural skin. And YES, I know my eyebrows are way overdue for a waxing, but as someone with an autoimmune illness, my health comes first. 💞 𝒲𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝐼 𝒰𝓈𝑒𝒹 I double cleanse at night so in the morning, I go in with something super gentle to just refresh my skin and remove oil from my skin. So today I used Drunk Elephant’s E-Rase Milki and then 4-5 spritz of the new Sweet B mist. Then I mixed Protini & D-Bronzi, and applied Umbra Tinte for SPF. My skin was looking extra glowy today so to tone it down and reduce the appearance of my pores, I lightly went over with Girlactik’s Luminous Face Powder in Light with a big, fluffy powder brush. Then I used KVD Vegan Beauty’s Cake Pencil in Trooper & Thrive Causemetics’ Liquid Lash Extensions mascara. For the lips, I used Jeffree Star’s Velvet Trap in Celebrity Skin with Bite Beauty’s Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss in Cider Donut! ✨ DRUNK ELEPHANT - E-Rase Milki Micellar Water DRUNK ELEPHANT - D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops DRUNK ELEPHANT - Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Hydrating Spray DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 girlactik - Luminous Face Powder KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Cake Pencil Eyeliner thrive causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Velvet Trap Lipstick BITE - Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss
✨Jergen Natural Face Glow Moisturizer Review✨JERGENS - Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer CLAIMS: with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 gradually creates fabulous, natural-looking color with a subtle skin darkening complex. WHAT I HAVE SEEN: This product is way more gradual than using say IOP or Baja Bae, but I like the fact that I can use it until I get the color that I want, and know how many uses I need for “optimal color”. With the other two, you put it on, and BAM immediate color, which is good for when you’re really self tanning, but for an everyday moisturizer, this stuff is really good! PRICE: $10.99 REPURCHASE STATUS: yes! It is very affordable and I like the natural looking color that it gives. OVERALL RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (I wish the bottle was a LITTLE bit bigger.)
St.Tropez before and after☀️
I’ve tried every which way to get the darkest effect but I’m convinced my skin just won’t tan any further than this. I keep the tan on for the full 3 hours, i exfoliate before and always use a mitt. There’s definitely a color difference in the “before” and “after” pic but I’d like to stay as dark as the “during” pic. ST.TROPEZ - Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse PROS: gets the job done, easy to use, reputable product, smells nice CONS: not as dark as I’d it like it to get
Low maintenance self tan
Even thought we aren’t going out and doing much these days, I’ve realized keeping up with my self care routine still makes me feel good. I feel put together and confident. I’ve been painting my nails, taking extra steps in my skincare and I’ve started self tanning again. Sunshine is hard to come by in Wisconsin Winter so I was really excited to test out the Self Tanning Water in medium and Self Tanning Drops in light. These products are super easy to use and much less messy than typical colored tanning mousses I use. I applied the tanning water with a mitt and it was quick and easy. The arm picture before and after you see in the next pic is with the medium shade. I used the light drops on my face and body as an even quicker self tan by mixing it into my face moisturizer and body cream. If I could have I would’ve got the drops in medium as well but they’re great for touching up a base tan. These products do have a slight self tan scent but nothing that bothers me. I definitely recommend these if you need a no fuss self tan! ISLE OF PARADISE - Self-Tanning Water ISLE OF PARADISE - Self Tanning Drops *these items were sent to me in exchange for an honest review
Hyped products I didn’t love 💔
Today I wanted to quickly review some products that have been super hyped up over the years. Unfortunately, these products just didn’t work for me. I won’t go into detail like I usually do in reviews, but quick summaries. So, if you have any questions, please let me know! Up first is the BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Eye Base . This product is supposed to nourish, hydrate and smooth the under eye area as well as prime it for concealer. This product did feel hydrating, but it made my concealer crease horribly no matter how little I applied. I gave it time to soak in and tried it will several concealers with no luck. I do think this is a nourishing eye cream, it just doesn’t pair well with makeup which is it’s intended purpose. Next, we have the wet n wild - Photo Focus Dewy Foundation . This might be a shocker since this is literally a cult favorite, but it just didn’t do it for me. It’s not the worst, especially in terms of coverage, but I didn’t really like the finish of it. It didn’t fuse with my skin; it just kind of sat on top. Plus, it wasn’t that glowy on my dry skin. I think my main issue is that I couldn’t find a good color match. As I said, this isn’t the worst and I’ll probably try to use it up by mixing it with another foundation. It didn’t live up to the hype though. Moving on, we have the ARMANI beauty - Luminous Silk Foundation . This ones hard for me because I’ve wanted to try this foundation for so long and has such high hopes. Unfortunately, I thought this was awful. For some reason, this applies very patchy on me and emphasized texture regardless of what products I used underneath. The coverage wasn’t great either. I have foundations a fraction of the cost of this one that are superior. I’ll use up the sample and see if I can find a combination that makes this look okay, but for now, it’s a hard pass. Lastly, is the ISLE OF PARADISE - Self-Tanning Water . This burned by skin SO BAD. Every single time I used this, my skin turned bright red, was itchy and was irritated immediately. As you can see, I gave this tanning water several tries, but I always had the same reaction. It’s a shame because this did tan my face nicely. People love this stuff and I really wish it worked for me. I might try using it on my body, just so I’m not wasteful. Hopefully I don’t have the same results! There ya have it: hyped products that didn’t work for me unfortunately 😩 Did you love any of these?

Best Bronzing Lotion!
Finally got my hands on the Baja Bae tanning lotion! I’ve seen it all over and wanted to give it a try being I spend a short time in the sun but love a good tan. I typically take my dog out to swim so she can burn off her energy for the day. (Too hot to go for walks) Just 30 mins in the sun gave me such a glow I was very impressed. The smell is amazing and my dog kept trying to lick it off. 🤣 My concerns before purchasing this was one, does it actually work and two, is it sticky and messy as some tanning creams can be. I can assure you it does work and it is clean and absorbs into the skin quickly. No messy transfer onto your swimsuit or towel. I am happy to switch from using Maui Babe to this! I absolutely love using it during the winter months for that pop of color. My daughter just snuck out of the house today to go catch some rays and you can bet she grabbed my bottle of Baja Bae! It’s a must! ☀️
