A Bronzer to Give you that Sun Kissed Look

I have to tell you this Bella Bronzer by Maskcara Beauty is the best I have ever used in my life!  I’m not kidding.  If you want to look sun kissed you need this bronzer.

I would completely recommend the collection of the bronzer, blush, brush and stay spray.  It will not disappoint,  the blush and bronzer combo gives that glowy, bronzed, flush look and the brush is the perfect way to get it.  When you’re done,  spritz your face with the amazing Stay Spray so your makeup stays put all day.  It even smells like coconut!

Check out our friend Christy’s bronzy cheek.

A Great Brow Product to Make You Look Younger

Do you draw on your brows or fill them in regularly?  If you are over 35 you should.  A study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology found that as we age, we have less contrast in our facial features, like our brows and our lips.   When researchers compared two pictures of the same woman, one with added contrast, 80% of the time the picture with more contrast was deemed the younger picture of the woman.

What does this mean for us? If you want to appear younger, add more contrast!  You can start with your brows.  As we age, our eyebrows thin out.  So, defining your brows is just one way you can appear younger.

Tattoo Studio
Maybelline Tattoo Studio

Here is a product I recommend that could make life a little easier for you!  Maybelline Tattoo Studio does last for days and was easy to apply!  Just make sure you get the right shade for you.  It’s ok to have a little darker brow.  Brows are what define our face, so go for it and enjoy this product!

Get Lit – With Light Up Lip Gloss

Well,  let’s start with the fact that I had not even tried on this lipgloss and they already had me!  The light up wand with little mirror is genius.  I mean it’s incredible, I can put gloss on in a dark car or Uber with this gem.  So, let’s talk quality.  It’s creamy and the color is great!  Not quite a stain, but overall a good buy.  It runs about $20, so it also makes a sweet little gift for friends.

Pure Illumination

Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss is a natural-based, conditioning lip gloss that has a LED-lit applicator and convenient mirror for easy application on the go.  Glad someone finally thought of this!

Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss contains a medical-grade Lanolin, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E – and is paraben-free!  It’s available in 15 different shades for casual days and nights out on the town.

This natural-based hydrating lip gloss is available in 2 options: Push Button (LED-lit applicator is turned on/off by a button at the top of applicator) or Twist Top (LED-lit applicator automatically illuminates when the lip gloss tube is opened).  Try it and let us know how you like it!

4 Makeup Products for a Natural Looking Tween/Teen

Steps:

  1. Use covergirl bb cream – over entire face (bonus is that it has spf in it too, so your teen protects their skin while wearing a little color).

COVERGIRL Smoothers Lightweight BB Cream Light to MediumCOVERGIRL Smoothers Lightweight BB Cream

2.  Roll concealer in a V-shape under eye and lightly pat.  What you get is a sheer dose of light under the eyes to conceal under eye circles (if they have them). It simply just brightens up the face.

3.   Use the Wet n Wild blush on the apples of the cheeks and for the eyelids.  Cool right 2 for 1!

Color Icon Blush, Ros Champagne by Wet 'n' WildColor Icon Blush, Ros Champagne by Wet ‘n’ Wild

This blush can be used on cheeks but also on the eyelids for eyeshadow.  Has a small amount of sparkle but just enough to be light reflecting not glittery.  This creates a fresh face look just slightly enhanced.

P.S. I use this most days myself for a natural looking face.

4.  Take a tiny bit of Aquaphor, rub on just the lid,  Then, with an eyeshadow brush use same Wet n Wild blush and go over the top lid.  Add more as needed.  You can also lightly use color on the whole eyelid!

5.  Apply Aquaphor to lips for a clear gloss.  Or any gloss you wish!

6.  Apply several coats of your favorite mascara.  I know what our favorite mascara is here at nearlyallthings – We already wrote about it. Check out our earlier post to get those details.

Lipstick that Lasts – Wet ‘n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain

 

I cannot say enough about these cheap, but awesome Wet ‘n Wild Megaslicks Balm stains!  I literally have every color.  I have been using these for years and now you know my secret.  They are never drying, last a longtime and you can build up the color.

If you apply then blot, apply then blot, it creates a stain that lasts (see instructional video below).  You will love them! It’s pretty simple to have pretty lips and it doesn’t break the bank.  💋💄
