Between everything at work and my New Year’s resolutions (like getting my butt to the gym at 5:30 am), I hardly have time to do much more than wash my face and throw my hair up. As resident beauty guru here at Beauté Minerals, that simply would not do. So in a few spare minutes I scrounge up, I came up with this simple, everyday polished look that is perfect for days when I need a little extra ‘umph’ in my style, all in 10 minutes or less! The concept is simple: polish the skin, make the eyes sparkle, and pop a little carefree color on the lips. Easy, right?
In years past my skin would have it's own extra special meltdown this time of year. I would pack on layers and layers of chemical and filler laden makeup every time I had an event, and then have to strip is all off afterwards. Now, I say no more! But, I still want to look glam and glowing, right?
Beauté Minerals has saved the day with their brand new Fresh & Festive Holiday 2018 Set, and I just had to play with all of the goodies. Thankfully my friend Elizabeth was willing to recreate the look for you all with a step by step guide!
So how do you choose out of the hundreds, if not thousands, of different brushes out there? And how do you know what really works for you? I recommend starting with a base set of 5 versatile brushes that are great for pretty much any task you can throw at them. The brushes from Beauté Minerals are affordable, quality tools made from soft animal hair (cruelty-free, of course). These brushes will ensure that you make the most of your makeup and will last you for years to come.
If you’re like me, or like 99.99% of the modern adult population, you are busy. You’re rushing through the day, running to the office, running errands, running around the house, running around in circles sometimes. Every once in a blue moon, you actually find an evening when you can let your hair down and enjoy a night on the town with your closest friends. But why waste your precious time sitting in front of a mirror when you could be sitting at a table actually enjoying yourself?
After being so disappointed with my usual choices, what did I have to lose? I was an instant convert. My flaws were covered. My skin could breath. I glowed. This was everything I was looking for in a foundation, and my selfies never turned out better. However, this was a process of trial and error. There were times I could not get the product to stick to my face. There were times I could not get it to stay on my brush. There were times I got WAY too much on my brush. And in a misguided effort to make sure all my bases were covered, I purchased SO many products that now sit barely touched on my already cluttered vanity.
Basically, I made all the mistakes so you don't have to.
