Root Collaboration-Island Oasis

So excited to finally share with you all the Root Collection-Island Oasis!  Krista from Root was so kind to ask us to collaborate on a collection.  I couldn’t think of a better person to collab. with then my good friend Molly from MaisonPur.  We created this collection together, and I’m pretty proud of how it turned out!  Our theme, Island Oasis, was inspired by the Spring 2016 runways, which were filled with island themed clothes and makeup looks.  The makeup colors were aqua greens and blues for eyes, and pale pink lips and cheeks.  We gathered the inspiration and looks, and Krista went to work creating the collection.  Let’s just say she nailed it!  I was so excited to see it in the mailbox and start playing with all the colors…a kid in a candy store.  The colors evoke Island Oasis and have me excited for warmer weather!

I’ve been a fan of Root for quite some time now.  I love Krista’s whole philosophy and how she’s so involved in the whole process of her creations.

I believe 110% that the makeup you wear to achieve professional results doesn’t have to be full of harmful chemicals & cost you a fortune. Why sacrifice your health for beauty when you don’t have to?” Krista Dolash, Founder of Root

Not only are Root’s products not filled with chemicals but they’re affordable.  Plus, they offer everything, so it can be your one stop shop.  How cool is that?! Clean, affordable and carries everything-Root has got it going on.

I have loved creating this collection!  There are so many ways to wear it, from subtle to extreme and everywhere in between.  As I mentioned above, we also had the privilege of sampling a ton of Root makeup as well.  The whole look was created using just Root products.  Besides the collection, a few standouts I have to mention are the mascara, brow pomade and liquid liner.  These are serious faves now and have been on rotation in my makeup bag.  The liquid liner lasts all day and I love how they use a felt tip applicator versus a brush-so much easier for application in my opinion.  I also have fallen hard for their mascara.  My lashes are full, and it adds some serious length.  I’m also digging the brow pomade.  My brows are filled in, but stay in place too.  I love how you can put all the containers in an easy to use Z palette.  Makes it so easy to travel with all my essentials!
