Hey guys, I have been loving Smashbox’s Cover Shot Eye Palette. I’d been using it a lot lately. I love how well these eye shadows blend together so well, which makes it quick and easy to use. So I thought I would tell you about […]
I’ve recently fallen in love with very subtle makeup. That has inspired me to post a “No makeup, makeup look” I’ve actually got two, one with basically no makeup, and another more done up that just looks like very little makeup. For this look […]
I’ve recently fallen in love with very subtle makeup. That has inspired me to post a “No makeup, makeup look” I’ve actually got two, one with basically no makeup, and another more done up that just looks like very little makeup.
For this look I put on Pixel Concealer to cover any blemishes. Then blended it with a Moda Complexion brush. Then Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous conlealer in a lighter shade, to brighten up my eyes (and to avoid the “are you dyeing?” questions). After that I put Ofra Universal Eyebrow Pencil to line my upper and lower lash line (but not on the water line) and smudged it a tiny bit with my finger. Then I used Pixel Triple Boost Mascara to give my lashes a more fuller look while still keeping a natural look. Then I finished it up with Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in the color catoure.
Another option for a “no makeup” look but a little more done up. I started with Rimmel London Lasting finish foundation. Then I used a matte peachy color from my Jesse’s Girl 9 pan shadow dream girl compact all over my eyelid. Then I lined my eyes with a black pencil eyeliner just on the water line, and I smudged a tiny bit on the bottom lash line. Then I applied some Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous conlealer in a lighter shade than my foundation to brighten up under my eyes. On my cheeks, I used Tanya Burrs Rosy Flush Cheek Palette for a subtle contour and highlight, and light blush. I also filled in my eyebrows using her Perfect Brow palette. Then I used Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder to blend it all together. I stuck with Pixel Triple Boost Mascara for full yet natural looking lashes. I finished the look with Tanya Burr Soft Luxe Lip gloss in Rhubarb and Custard.
The best thing about a “no Makeup” look is that you are spotlighting your natural beauty. As much as I love a real done up glamorous look, there’s something so lovely about a more subtle, and more natural look. I’ve been really loving these looks so much lately. Plus it saves so much time in the mornings as it doesn’t take as much effort, but it still looks like I put in plenty of effort into it.

I have already told you guys how amazing Valentia is. I love their products, and they do wonderful things for my skin. I could go on and on about how amazing they are. But all you need to know is that they are an all natural, cruelty free, vegan, organic, skincare brand that is made in the USA, using sustainable energy.
There are maybe reasons I love this brand. One being their mission “To provide you a greater level of overall happiness with your appearance without the harsh chemicals that dry out, stretch, burn and prematurely age the skin. Our strategic formulations include powerful natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to succeed in giving skin a natural and radiant glow that contributes to a youthful look”. I do believe that they have accomplished it, as my skin has benefited so much from their products. Before I had accepted that I would either have dry itchy skin, or badly broken out (from using most moisturizers).
So I though I would share my evening skincare routine, that pretty much only uses Valentia products.
So to start with, I remove my mascara using Vitamin E oil. Then once I look like a raccoon, I wipe away the oil, and all of my make up with (this week it’s) Burt’s Bees cleansing wipes. Next I use True Glow Eye Cream, with my ring finger under and around my eyes. The I put a pump of Royal Rose Hydrating Serum and a pump of Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum and smooth that all over my skin. After all of that is done I apply Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer and smooth that in all over.I like this moisturizer because not only does is work great, but it soaks right in so it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or oily. It’s also meant to even skin tone, and brighten dark spots. Which is great because I tend to have dark spots long after blemeshes heal. If your looking for a good, moisturizer then you should deffinitely try this one. You can get it from there website or from Amazon.
