Inika Organic Baked Mineral Blush Duo(in the color Pink Tickle)-

I’ve quickly fallen for anything and everything Inika Organic!  Their products speak for themselves.  This is the first time I’ve tried one of their baked Mineral Blushes.  This blush is so pretty.  It has a mix of blush rose pink and a soft peach hue.  A great mix!  I love that it’s a pressed blush.  Makes it so easy to use and less messy.  The blush color is very light and subdued.  It really gives an overall natural look.  I like layering this blush on top of a cream blush.  This helps the blush last longer and gives it a little glow too!  A great blush for anyone who likes an overall soft, understated look.  Get your blush here!

Inika Organic Liquid Foundation(in the color nude)-

This foundation had me at first swipe!  I really can’t get over it.  It goes on so smooth, doesn’t look cakey and lasts the whole day.  I tried their bb cream but I prefer their liquid foundation over it.  It makes your skin look so dewy and lit from within.  I would apply it with my fingers or a foundation brush.  It blends so easily into the skin.  A great foundation for those with dry to normal skin types. Grab your foundation here!

Stasher Bags-

If you’ve followed me for a hot minute you know I’m a huge fan of these silicone bags!  Can’t go wrong with them.  They are made of silicone and not plastic, so you’re not wasting plastic bags and you’re helping the environment by not using plastic-a win/win!  I store anything and everything in them.  I put them in the freezer too!  There really isn’t a wrong way to use them.  I love that they’re dishwasher safe too! Get your stasher bags here!

Juice Beauty Sport  Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF30-

I was excited to try a new sunscreen this summer.  I love a good mineral based sunscreen and this one by Juice Beauty did not disappoint!  It is packed full the natural mineral zinc oxide which helps block the sun without the harmful chemicals.  It does go on a bit whiter, which is typical of mineral based sunscreens. But sometimes I prefer that when applying to my kiddos.  It helps me to see where I’ve applied it and I find they don’t burn as easily.  This sunscreen stood the test of pool days quite well!  Can’t recommend it enough, get it here! 

100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask-

I love these masks! They can wake up any tired eyes.  Plus, they are great at de-puffing and minimizing dark circles.  You apply them underneath your eyes and it instantly feels cooling and refreshing.  The eye gels are made from a combination of aloe vera gel and plant cellulose.  I love bringing these with me on trips, and also for early mornings when my eyes need a little bit of help.  Trust me- you’ll be hooked!  Grab your eye mask here!

100% Luminous Primer-

This primer is one of my very favorites in green beauty- it’s so good!  It hydrates the skin but also smoothes it out, providing a perfect base before makeup.  I apply this after my morning lotion or oil.  I then apply my foundation.  It goes on so evenly and helps my foundation last for the whole day.  If you’ve been looking for a green beauty primer- this one is so good! Get your 100% Luminous Primer here!

Alaffia Everyday Shea Body Wash-

This is such a good value!  It has great clean ingredients but doesn’t break the bank.  I love that it comes in a pump bottle.  I use this on the girls.  It hardly has a smell at all, just a light vanilla mint scent from essential oils.  This lasts us for several months.  It suds up well too!  If you feel like you go through body wash really quick- this is a great purchase!  Get your Alaffia Everyday Shea Body Wash here!

ZuZu Luxe Lipstick in Starlet-

This lipstick is another great value for a green beauty lipstick.  It goes on so smooth and doesn’t bleed.  I love the color!  A cool candy apple red.  The perfect statement lip for those days when you want to look pulled together but don’t want to do a full face of makeup.  Check out all their other colors here!

Natural Summer Makeup Looks

Natural Summer Makeup Looks

I’ve got the lowdown on all my natural summer makeup looks!  From my favorite bronzers, bright lipsticks, and blushes that pop. Each season makeup changes depending on the weather and summer is no different.

So I created 3 different makeup looks for you.  Depending on what you like to wear and how you like to wear your makeup.  From minimal, fresh faced and dolled up, I’ve got something for everyone.

Minimal-  This look is for the gal who likes to keep things simple with their makeup in the summer.  Low maintenance is top priority.  This is a great look for someone who prefers to not wear a ton of makeup or maybe they do like to wear more makeup but in the summer they like to keep it minimal.  Especially great for pool days, when you want to feel pulled together but don’t want everything sliding off at the pool!

Products Used:

  • Suntegrity BB Cream- I’m a huge fan of this BB cream.  It brings an overall pulled together look to my skin but doesn’t feel heavy.  It offers an SPF of 30- using physical blockers, no chemical blockers.  It is a little heavier than just a tinted moisturizer but I like that because then it doesn’t feel as greasy.
  • Vapour Multi-Use Stick- These are perfect for summer when you want a less is more approach to your makeup routine.  You can use these as a cream blush, and lip product.  So easy to carry in your beach bag or travel bag.  Makes doing your makeup that much easier!
  • Lily Lolo Bronzer in Miami Beach- This bronzer is one of my faves!  It is so forgiving and easy to use.  If you aren’t used to putting on bronzer then snag this one up.  It isn’t orangey at all and honestly fail proof.  I apply this wherever the sun would naturally hit.  Right below hairline, sides of nose, right below cheekbones, and blended down my neck.
  • 100% Pure Water resistant mascara– There is no true waterproof mascara in green beauty- if you find one they are probably using some chemicals in it.  However, 100% Pure offers a water resistant one that I love.  It gives great length and deportation.  Not tons of volume but I’m ok with that since this is a minimal look.
  • Kjaer Weis Lip Gloss- Nothing says summer than a shiny gloss!  This one doesn’t feel goopy at all.  It glides on and leaves great color pigment along with a nice sheen.

Fresh Faced- This look is for the gal that likes to add a little more oomph to her summer makeup look.  Maybe she’s grabbing lunch with friends but doesn’t want to look overdone like she’s going out but just put together.  Also, great look if you are on vacation and going from pool minimal look to grabbing dinner later on in the day.

Products Used:

  • ZuZu Luxe Oil Free Liquid Foundation- This foundation is perfect summer weather!  It is oil free and isn’t going to clog your pores.  I love how it gives light to medium coverage depending on how you apply.  Great for those who like a little more coverage than a bb cream but don’t want the oiliness from a lot of liquid foundations.
  • Juice Beauty Last Looks Cream Blush– Love a good cream blush.  They make my skin look dewy and fresh, yet they still look completely natural.  What makes a cream blush great is that it fades easier than a powdered blush.  Sometimes that might not be good but for a minimal look it’s nice because you don’t have to worry about it sliding down your face.  It just fades naturally- which ends up looking like you meant for it too.
  • Vapour Bronzer Stick- I love using a bronzer stick to really contour my face, plus achieve some bronze color.  It takes a little more time but the effort is totally worth it! I apply this where the sun would hit my face.  Right below hairline, sides of nose, right below cheekbones, and blended down my neck.
  • Maya Chia Highlight of the Day- It’s no secret I love this highlighter!  They came out with a new color and it’s just in time for summer.  It’s called Afternoon Delight- a perfect peachy/pink hue.  I can’t stop wearing it!  It gives my skin a lit from within glow.
  • Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara This mascara has quickly become one of my very favorites.  It gives my lashes separation, volume, thickness in just a couple swipes.  Can’t recommend it enough!  Perfect for when you want your eyes to pop!
  • Kosas Lipstick- If you’ve been following me a hot minute you know I haven’t been able to put these lipsticks down lately.  Especially great for summer when you want to pull look together quickly- just swipe on a bold lip and you’re good to go!  Kosas lipsticks are so velvety and stay put.  I’m partial to Royal and Thrillest for a bold summer look!

Dolled Up- This look is for the gal that still likes to wear some decent makeup in summer and doesn’t want to skimp.  However, she doesn’t want to look overdone.  It’s the perfect look in achieving a made up look for summer without going too far.  Plus, just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you can’t wear some eyeliner and eyeshadow!

Products Used:

  • Hynt Beauty Sun Prep- Love this facial sunscreen!  It offers an SPF of 25 and acts like a primer for the skin.  Your foundation literally glides on after application. No white hue residue either!
  • ILIA Skin Serum Foundation- This liquid foundation gives medium coverage and yet doesn’t feel like a mask.  I also love that my skin doesn’t get a greasy t-zone in the afternoon after using.  I wear the color Texel SF3.
  • Kjaer Weis Cream Blush- This blush has been on repeat in my makeup routine for a while.  It gives such a pop of color and the consistency is so creamy and easy to apply.  I’m partial to Happy and Blossoming.
  • Lily Lolo Pressed Blush- I love to have a powdered blush on hand since summer months can be warm and makeup can fade quicker in heat.  I apply this on top of my cream blush to help set it for the day.  My blush always last throughout the day!
  • Crunchi Bronzer- This bronzer is a loose bronzer and really gives such a great color pigment.  I tap some of the product off into the cap and then swirl my brush in it and then tap excess off before applying.  It even has the slightest shimmer in it which I love!
  • Vapour Halo Illuminator- This illuminator comes in stick form and gives your skin a serious glow.  It’s easy to apply and goes with literally every skin tone.
  • Lily Lolo Mascara- This is another fave mascara in green beauty.  It gives your lashes the volume and drama we all crave.  Especially great for the girl who likes to get all dolled up!
  • Clove and Hollow Lip Velvets-  This babies don’t budge!  Literally can put it on in the morning and it’s still there by night.  They have some seriously fun colors too!  I’ve been loving the color in Road Trip!

Art of Organics July Discovery: Illuminate

Art of Organics July Discovery: Illuminate

It’s here, the Art of Organics July Discovery: Illuminate!  I’m beyond excited for this box!!  Sometimes you just get a beauty box and it checks all the boxes- this one did just that.  We are seeing Leahlani’s Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir in this box, plus Au Naturale’s Powder Highlighter.   I’ve loved getting to sample these two products!

If you aren’t familiar with Art of Organics and this green beauty box, then keep reading as I explain why this box is one to get a hold of.  Their belief is really simple-You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health for beauty.  I couldn’t agree more!  Their goal is to bring people the cleanest, best, and most luxurious products.  Claire the founder, has always been a beauty junkie and on the quest to purge her own makeup bag, she realized she wanted to share her journey with others and raise awareness.  I noticed instantly after opening the box, the attention to detail.  They name their boxes each month as well as follow a theme.  The card inside describes the products in the box so well and gave directions for application.  The box is $38, with a value of $70+ and features each month 2-4 full size products.  They have high standards for their product selection, such as being cruelty free, organic and non-toxic.  They have more specifics on the ingredients they don’t use here on their website.

Ok, on to the review…

Leahlani Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir-

I’m a huge fan of Leahlani’s products.  I had a feeling this was going to be a good one the minute I tested it on my hand.  Then as I inhaled the warming Hawaiian scent.  It took me away to Kaui where Leahlani’s creations are made by hand with some serious love.  This is meant to be a morning elixir before you apply your makeup, sunscreen or any oil/lotion.  It really enhances your skin- whatever way you use it.  Made with a balance of squalene oil, mangosteen, goji berry, guava and passionfruit oils.  I love how Leahlani describes the scent, “She smells of jasmine flowers and tropical rain showers.”  I couldn’t have said it better.  It leaves your skin feeling smooth, hydrated- not greasy.  I applied it before my makeup and loved the way it made my skin feel.  It smoothed cracks and made everything appear brighter.  I would apply it to slightly damp skin after misting it with a toner.  It really hydrates, primes your skin and gives you an all over glow.  I’m hooked!  Another Leahlani win in my book!  If you haven’t used any Leahlani products, be sure to checkout my review on her line here.  Her products are some of the very best in green beauty and really do perform.  The product I would recommend you start with is her Mermaid Mask- you’ll be in love after one use!

Au Naturale Powder Highlighter-

So fun to see a makeup product in the box this month- nice change of pace!  I’ve used a handful of Au Naturale products, but not their powdered highlighter.  This is perfect for summer weather!  Especially when it can get hot and humid quick.  This won’t be sliding off the skin.  The color is in Begonia- a pretty pearlized hue with a touch of peachy pink tones in it.  I loved applying this on my upper cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupid’s bow, middle of eyebrows, and middle of chin.  It looks so natural and gives me a glow without it looking like I’m trying…you know what I mean! It comes in a handy pump bottle- great for applying on your brush and then applying to the skin.  I’ll be wearing this all summer!

I would hop on this month’s box soon if you’re thinking about snagging one.  If you haven’t signed up for Art of Organics box you can sign up here!  Don’t miss out on this fabulous green beauty box!  Not only do you get quality products each month but for a steal. You pay $39 each month and get access to some stellar products.  You can sign up for 3 months, 6 months and 12 months!  At 6 and 12 months you start saving.  Also, each month a theme is chosen around the box.

Have you used any of these products?
