Happy Labor Day, my loves!! I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend! Just in case you missed my latest YouTube video, my Highlighters Only Challenge video is below! Thank you to my subscriber, Nick, for requesting this video! It was so much fun putting together this full-face-using-highlighters-only look with some of my favorite glow-potions. I didn’t have a shimmery foundation, so I made one by mixing up three of Hard Candies’ highlighters. Hysterical as a foundation, the 3-highlighter mixture is actually a great one for daily dewy glow on the high points of the face! Overall, I would most definitely say that this look isn’t meant to be a wearable look, as lots of highlights on the skin can exaggerate every nook & cranny! BUT, it does photograph great for editorial and black and white photos! Hope you guys enjoy the video! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
Hi guys! My April Faves & Current Makeup-Prep Routine vid is now up! There were a ton of products that I’ve been loving this month, hence the lengthy vid. I’ve been loving Jurlique’s Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream.
It has a gel/lotion-like texture, and leaves my eye area feeling super soothed. Many tend to think that applying heavy creams to the undereye area is a good thing. On the contrary, heavy eye creams can actually clog the tiny pores around your eyes and draw attention to your eye area. Thinner textured, uber-hydrating eye creams are the way to go for sensitive undereyes. Jurlique’s is definitely one of my faves. Bare Minerals Biolucent Mineral Brightening Treatment has also been amazeeee. I apply it after I apply the Rose Hip Oil, and then I apply my moisturizer.
This combo has been giving my skin healthy radiance without the need to slather on as much highlighter 😉 One of my new holy grail’s is Chrislie/Measurable Difference’s Rose Hip Body Oil. It is a luxurious, calming, & hydrating oil. On the bottle it does say the oil can be applied to face, so I’ve been primarily using it as such :_) Aside from the light, true rose scent & lovely roses floating at the top of the glass bottle, I love that a little goes a long way. It applies from a glass dropper as a light oil, not a heavy one, & leaves my skin feeling hydrated and dewy.
This oil very could be my fave product of life!!!! Also been loving Real Techniques blush brush & Wet N’ Wild’s contour palettes!
What was I doing before this blush brush!?!! The contour palettes include super soft powders that blend flawlessly! Especially love the banana shade for setting my undereye concealer. The bronzers are matte, and are amazing for sculpting and all-over bronzing, not to mention, they also make great crease shades for that balanced bronzed makeup look. Petal Fresh’s Toning Hibiscus Papaya body butter has done wonders for body hydration this month as well. I also recommend their Honey Coconut Oil flavor :))) The Petal Fresh Pomegranate Face Wipes have been my quick face exfoliation go-to’s!
The thing I love the most about Petal Fresh is that their products include super natural ingredients. Next, Soapbox’s Mandarin Hand Soap won’t be leaving my sink anytime soon. With every Soapbox purchase, Soapbox will donate a soap to someone in need. Love their charitable efforts!! The mandarin scent is divineeeeeee!!!! Another fave is my plaid Posh Poncho chihuahua clothing design. Having a lot of fun making these!
If I have left anything out in this post, everything is in my vid above 🙂 Wishing everyone a beautiful week! XO ~Kelle
In case you guys missed it, my latest Casting Makeup Look & Drugstore GRWM video is now up on Youtube! I went with mostly drugstore makeup items to achieve this minimal look for my casting. A few of these products made it into my March Favorites video that will be up soon as well. Thanks so much to my new subscribers for supporting my channel! Love you!!! For more on the Bellápierre powder palette used in this vid, check out my past post on this awesome mineral face palette. Please let me know if you have any questions about this look! XO ~Kelle
Summer is here, my lovelies! L.A.’s 90 degree heat wave has me thinking all things beach & summer! There will always be a summer event to attend, so first things first! Summer skin & SPF is essential! Currently crushing on Maybelline’s Dream Nude Airfoam foundation. It has SPF 16 and gives that light & fresh skin-in-a-bottle look! I love its super thin texture, as I don’t normally wear heavy foundations during the day. I have raved about Measurable Difference highlighters before, and for good reason. It makes all the difference! ;))) I picked up a new Measurable shade last week and it was well worth it! I have finally discovered my holy grail highlighter in all of life! It is a light pinky shade with hints of lilac.
It didn’t come with a shade name, but it is a few shades lighter in color than their “Pink” shade that I also love. Both are outstanding highlighters! In this pic, the highlight is from one light-handed brush stroke into the product! It can be amped up to kilo-watt status for night. Seriously keeping this highlighter under my pillow. For sun bronzed skin I love Loreal’s Sublime Self Tanner. It gives a natural airbrushed effect and sprays like an airbrush with the perfect amount of spritz. I use it on the daily! Also, I like to make sure to wear sunscreen high in spf when I’m on the beach. Shimmer bronzer is a must for shoulders & décolletage. I like Victoria Secret’s Bronzing dust on my shoulders when I’m in a bikini. For the featured beachwear look, I went with a Michael Kors black bikini with my Kelley Nicole Collection Floral Hat.
The beach is my absolute favorite place in the world! For me, there’s nothing like the sound of the ocean, the birds, and a good book. Wishing everyone a great week! xoxo ~Kelle
