2 second bronzed, dewy makeup hack!

Want to hear my trick to bronzed, dewy makeup that lets me sleep in extra and still have time have time to get coffee before class? Ohhh yaaaaaaaaa

1. First start of with the moisturizer or sunscreen! Always use SPF, even in winter. Pro tip: go with something tinted to skip foundation to shave off some time in your routine.

2. Here it is: 2 pumps Nars liquid laguna and 1 pump of a liquid highlighter. I love this Kevyn Aucoin one or the Becca one.  (Here’s a cheaper version from Makeup Revolution. I don’t have a cheaper bronzer but I can say that bronzer is 100000% worth it.)

3. Blend that all over your face with your fingers! And no, it’s not for the faint of heart or those that like a matte finish. You can mix this into your moisturizer or a tinted sunscreen for a subtler bronze/ glow.

What matters is the liquid bronzer + the highlighter mixed together all over your face because then you don’t have to use bronzer or highlighter and it shaves off a lot of time.

4. After that, I just put some concealer under my eyes, I do my brows, mascara and then I’m DONE.  Ok I add a lip too. Hahah.

Anyways, it’s fast and it fakes a bronze glow which I desperately need because New England has decided it still wants to snow so the only tan/glow I will have on my body will be fake. 🙂

I promise it doesn’t look as crazy as it sounds! You only use a little bit so it adds a really pretty bronze, glow without making you look Tin man ish. Hahah. It’s also a really great option if you don’t self tan your face!

Wishing you the happiest of Mondays if there was ever such a thing!

Game changer !

I LOVE MY BEAUTY BLENDER!  I’ve tried the fake $5 dollar ones and quite frankly, using it was my punishment for trying to skimp.  They suck.  I am forever loyal to my beauty blender.  For Christmas I got this set with beauty blenders and the cleaner.  This sounds horrendous but I never really washed my beauty blenders before.   (yeeeeeeeks!) And I really thought the cleaners were a waste.  I would just buy a new one once it got super dirty and that was that!  I got this tan one in November and a month later it was filled with foundation.  This is not supposed to happen and it looked much older and grosser then is should have.  Above is the beauty blender washed with the cleaner and it looks brand new, does it not?!  I wish I had a picture of it before I washed it but take my word, it was gross!  I was blown away because I had just tried to wash it the other day with dish soap and coconut oil and nothing happened. The solid cleansing soap is magic.  It’s a bar of soap and all you do is rub the damp beauty blender against it and bam! its new.  It doesn’t even make sense how, it just is.   If you use beauty blenders daily like me, this is a MUST.  The solid cleaner is a game changer.  10/10.
