Fire & Ice

After Derby time in Kentucky, you feel like you need to cleanse everything…  your face, your liver, you soul. Okay, kidding about that last part. I feel like my face lives in make-up during Derby week and never catches a break. So the girls and I decided to do a little self love as soon as that week was over!

We tried Boscia’s newest face mask that just came out. It’s called Fire & Ice Cryosea Peel Off Mask. This mask has a mermaid-like holographic color that truly resembles a mermaids fin and it is BEAUTIFUL! It lifts, tightens, plumps and increases circulation leaving the skin feeling tingly and cool. That was honestly one of my favorite things about it! It felt SO good!

One of my biggest skin issues is my pores. I honestly can’t stand the constant battle so I’m always down to try a product that is supposed to help with that. This mask has sea kelp that draws out impurities, shrink pores and tighten the skin! My skin will feel dry after a lot of masks like this and I didn’t feel that way with this one. It still felt totally hydrated!

Moral of the story here is that we all loved it! We would all recommend it! So, go give it a try and feel like a beautiful mermaid! You can purchase it directly through Boscia or online at Ulta now. It will be available in Ulta stores on May 12th! https://www.ulta.com/mermaid-fire-ice-cryosea-peel-off-mask?productId=pimprod2005916&sku=2545311&cmpid=PS_Non!google!Product_Listing_Ads&cagpspn=pla&CATCI=aud-434937987590:pla-300240268222&CAAGID=56727878626&CAWELAID=330000200001764433&CATARGETID=330000200001480451&cadevice=c&gclid=Cj0KCQjww47nBRDlARIsAEJ34bnmQFvxFgEIfP-EkUUqRO-fYSDynTioRYNBlzM83z2YwZy5Epq0CukaAn6REALw_wcB

  

Date Night Make-Up Look

I get a lot of questions about Beauty Counters Make-up. Recently, they came out with some new make-up items. So – especially now – the questions have been rolling in. I’m SO excited about some of these items they came out with y’all! Mainly the Liquid eyeliner (because I usually use liquid over pencil), new eyeshadow palettes, and a new powder highlighter (they had one already but it was a cream and stick).  For those of you not familiar with Beauty Counter – it is a company that has very safe and clean, all natural beauty products. You will never find chemicals in their things and this is something I’ve been trying to be more conscious of lately with all categories of things we use/eat/etc. The thing I love most about this company is they’re actually fighting to get the Beauty Laws changed in America. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. What’s worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) does not have the authority to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day, day after day. The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. Over the past two decades, the European Union has banned close to 1,400 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date. That is insanity. Beauty Counter has a giant “Never List” of chemicals you will never find in their products. Which I love! Don’t get it twisted, I still use all my Sephora faves as well. But its nice to have options to swap out for.. and especially for me being in this industry – its nice to have options for my clients that are allergic to certain ingredients, and have options for that are clean for people who also care about that sort of thing as well!

All that being said, I decided to do a make-up look using the new Beauty Counter Make-up items that just came out! They just came out with some new eyeshadow palettes that are AWESOME! 

Items used:

Tint Skin in Shade Linen – $42

Concealer Pen in Light –  $33

Mattifying Powder –  $38

Satin Powder Blush in Guava – $30

Powder Highlighter in shade Halo – $39

Statement Velvet Eyeshadow Palette – $50

Lengthening Mascara – $29

Liquid Eyeliner – $28

Color Intense Lipstick in Twighlight – $34

Whats super nice with these new eyeshadow palettes, is they are currently offering small make-up kits that include a new paletter, an eyeliner, a lip color, and a bronzer or highliter priced at $115 – which if ordered separately would run you around $145! So, its really a great deal and something to take advantage of. I’m including the link if you would like to browse safer options for your self 🙂
