In love with this clean eyeshadow quad!
Omg!!!! You guys!!!! I’ve been loving the Roen Beauty 75 warm eyeshadow palette. If you haven’t swatched this baby in stores at Sephora you have to! It’s so gorgeous! I am a warm eyeshadow lover and this palette is right up my alley! The sparkles in this palette is insane and the formula applies so seamlessly with your fingers. I really love the dark brown shade in this palette as it reflects gold and in some lights even looks like an olive green. I really want to try more from this brand and I hope they expand their product line up soon! RÓEN - 75° Warm Eye Shadow Palette

Clean beauty DIY
I have a super simple beauty DIY for you! I’ve been using this for as long as I can remember. My mom would make this for me ever since I was little. Being Indian hair oils were huge for me growing up! Instead of buying hair oils my mom would mix different oils together warm it up in a small bowl for 10 seconds and then massage it into my hair before bed. It was always the most relaxing experience and I waited for it every Sunday! This hot hair oil treatment includes two common pantry staples 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and one tablespoon of olive oil! Warm in microwave for 10 seconds and distribute evenly on second or third day hair. Leave overnight preferably and wash in the morning. I swear by this treatment and I try to do it once a week since I have an extremely dry scalp. It supremely nourishes my hair and leaves it so shiny and smooth. It also helps seal my dry split ends. Give it a try! 💕
A clean beauty brand I swear by!
Where do I even start? Since we are talking about clean beauty this week I thought I would share my most favourite clean beauty brand! Drunk elephant! I don’t rave about just one specific brand too often because I like to share the love among all beauty brands but this brand in particular has really changed my skin and my overall confidence. Since my teenage years I struggled with acne. It was never a ton of breakouts at once but small ones that would appear throughout the month. The acne itself didn’t bother me as much but more so the dark spot it would leave behind once it healed. Since I have a tan complexion my skin tone scars very easily and it has been so hard to find a product that would decrease the hyperpigmentation on my skin. Products sometimes would work but it would take a while and another one would soon appear. Once I discovered drunk elephant there was no turning back. With their c-firma day serum, a-passioni retinol cream, and TLC framboos have absolutely changed the texture and hyperpigmentation on my skin. It’s so crazy. I don’t hesitate to leave the house without makeup and I actually tend to wear less make up on a daily basis. I never thought one brand could change the way I thought about my skin so much! Remember what works for me might not work for you. Make sure to test out anything new on your skin first and discontinue use of irritation occurs. Everyone skin is different!

My thoughts on clean beauty!
The clean beauty wave seems to be taking over the beauty industry and I am so here for it! If you want to try clean beauty products they are readily available in my retail stores but if you are looking for a wide range of brands that are clean all you have to do is click the clean beauty tab on the Sephora app or website and it takes you to a list of products that have the clean at Sephora stamp of approval. Clean at Sephora products are formulated without a list of over 50 ingredients, such as parabens , talc, and sulfates to name a few. All the clean beauty products I have tried I have absolutely love. They perform great and I feel good about putting it on my skin due to their clean ingredient list. If I am already paying en expensive price for a high end beauty product it might as well have ingredients that are good for my skin. Right? I feel like this is what most consumers look for now a days with social media and being able to be more informed about harmful ingredients that could be in our beauty products. To me it’s a no brainer and I think clean beauty will be the norm for most consumers in the years to come as we want products that are made with good quality ingredients just like the food we ingest our makeup that comes in contact with our largest organ should be good for us as well!
You have to try this clean beauty foundation
The obsession is real! I recently purchased the @rmsbeauty uncoverup cream foundation in the shade 44 and I am so obsessed! A foundation has not surprised me this much in a while! Here are some key features: Full coverage✅ Natural finish✅ Hydrating✅ Long lasting✅ Bonus features: Cruelty free✅ Gluten free✅ Recyclable packaging✅ Clean beauty product✅ Con: Poor shade range❌ Overall I’ve been so blown away by this product it leaves a beautiful natural finish to the skin and works so great with a glowy primer or base. It blends great with other cream products and I love that since it’s in a jar it comes with a cute metal spoon to scoop out the product! A little goes a long way and I don’t see myself running out of this baby anytime soon! If you are debating between this product and their concealer I would say definitely go for this one as you get way more product for the money you are spending! I’ve been wearing this product for this whole week and it wears so beautifully throughout the day no pilling or creasing and for dry girls you definitely do not need to powder! Swipe left to see how it looks on the skin! Rms beauty you are killing it it’s another win for me!

How I live a “clean” lifestyle
I haven’t always been the person to live in the most and healthy way but in recent years my mind set has changed since I know that I only have one body and I need to take care of it! To me clean means eating and doing things that make you feel good. This past year I’ve been eating less meat, and dairy. Meat because it’s more sustainable for the environment to eat less of it and I was never a huge fan of it to begin with. Dairy I have found that I was developed a lactose sensitivity so I try to stay away from it. I’ve been continus about making healthier choices such as sweet potato fries instead of regular fries, a salad for lunch instead of a bowl of pasta. Just small things that I have been trying to change about my diet. Other than trying to eat right I also try to workout 4-5 times a week sometimes this doesn’t always happen but when it doesn’t I do miss it! Working out for me is a way of releasing stress and I hate it for the first few minutes but once I get that heart rate up I remember why I started. It’s been such a great way to start my day and I feel so accomplished after. No one is perfect and neither am I! My journey to a clean lifestyle is ever evolving and I keep learning new things everyday!
Charlotte Tilbury is the essence of luxury. The gold packaging and creamy formulas made me fall in love so easily! Pillow talk is a classic everyday pink, so Marilyn is a bold juicy red and Bond girl is a little something extra on the lips. I love all three of these quite a lot and wear Bond girl or pillow talk everytime I have a special or important event!

I really enjoy having a fragrance free body lotion for when my skin is feeling itchy or if I really want my perfume to stand out. This one is heaven. It’s incredible rich and you take your time massaging it into your skin, but it leaves you feeling nourished forever! I love that it’s in a pump and I hope the company decides to make a pump bottle for my beloved Bum Bum cream! ❤️SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Nude Fragrance-Free Body Cream SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream

After a long day...
After a long shift at work my skin still looks fresh and dewy! I applied two pumps of the hydro grip, spot concealed with Ilia and applied a thin layer of flex foundation. To say I’m pleased with my base products would be an understatement! My holy grails for sure! I apply the primer with my fingers and then fab in the concealer and foundation with a sponge ILIA - True Skin Serum Concealer Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick

THE SMELL. It’s like no other. I haven’t met a single person that isn’t obsessed. Even men. It’s delightfully thick but rubs in beautifully and non greasy. I love this all over the body after a shower and smell so yummy for hours afterSOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Nuface mini device and primer
NuFACE - Mini Facial Toning Device Starting off with the Nuface Toning Device there’s this Mini size and a bigger size. The balls are the same size so I picked up the mini version, which was 200$ with the primer. I’ve only used it for about 6 weeks and I try to use it every morning, but realistically use it at least 6 times a week. It definitely gives me an instant lifted look and I love the experience of using it. It does take some more time than your usual routine though, but you can easily do it in the evening if you prefer. I looked at some older pictures and my face looks more defined, especially my jaw line and cheekbones as well as laugh lines around the mouth. I can’t wait to keep using and I’m sure I’ll see even better results over time. Also want to pick up the eye version, but these are all kind of pricey! NuFACE - Hydrating Leave-On Gel Primer Unfortunately I don’t think this works as a leave on primer. It works fine with the device, it’s clear and a thick gel and I find that you need kind of a lot of it. I don’t think the ingredients are special at all and a bottle is just not worth 50$. Plus it pills badly throughout the day, even without makeup. I guess if you use it and wash it off after it works, but what’s the point of that. I prefer to just use a hyaluronic acid or cosrx snail mucin which comes in a huge bottle and lasts forever. It works fine and you don’t feel any micro currents plus they are much more affordable!

Acne/texture friendly highlighter
Product claims: A gel-based, anti-pollution serum highlighter that can be mixed with skincare or foundation or applied directly to skin for a natural, dewy finish Highlighter ingredients: Hydrolyzed Algae helps control oil and bacteria while conditioning skin Marine Actives help to firm and protect skin against free radicals and UV light Mastic helps refine the skin’s texture to give a smooth and even appearance My experience: This is such an innovative product for those who are looking for skincare benefits with makeup. If you have pores, texture and acne like me, you know it’s a struggle to find highlighters which doesn’t emphasize the blemishes. This adds such a nice glow to my skin when I mix it in with my foundation and I think it lives up to the claim of controlling oil. The thing that I love the most about it is that it doesn’t leave a white cast and doesn’t exaggerate my pores on the high points Do I recommend this to others? Yes definitely! This highlighter also comes in 3 shades and the packaging also has a pump to keep the product bacteria free! Price: $42 for 0.5 oz
