Everything’s coming up roses

I ran out of my favorite mascara and concealer… so obviously I had to go to Sephora! A trip there means I’m going to get WAY more than my necessities hehe 🙂 I didn’t realize until I got home with my haul, that everything I bought was shimmery rose or mauve. I guess I am just really feeling those colors for fall!  Here’s what I got:

Roller Lash Mascara>> Benefit// My favorite mascara! Gets me through a 12 hour day with no flaking.

Power Neutrals>> bareMinerals // Love these shimmery neutrals and free of sulfates and parabens!

Tartelette Blush>> Tarte// 12 hour blush that is perfect for every day.

Lush Fruit Lip Gloss>> Bite Beauty// I have been obsessed with Bite Beauty! This gloss is made with actual fruit oils and coconut. I got Currant and it’s such a pretty fall shade!

Maracuja Creaseless Concealer>> Tarte// I have naturally dark under eyes and this concealer is a life saver!!

Compact Mirror>> Sephora>> There were so many times I wish I had a mirror on me and I saw this cute flowered compact and had to have it.

Song Inspo>> Roses// The Chainsmokers ft. ROZES

Melted

My latest summer obsession has been Too Faced Melted Lipstick! It goes on so smooth and lasts so long. It is like the perfect combination of gloss and stain…and the colors are intensely bright! I got Melted Marshmallow and Melted Coral (see pictures below) and LOVE them! I am also pining over these shades: Melted Strawberry, Melted Violet and Melted Black Plum. Anyone else been using Too Faced Melted? What shades do you love?!

Oh The Water She Moves Me

I am really obsessing over turquoise eyeliner on the bottom waterline! It is the perfect way to mix up your usual makeup routine for summer. It looks amazing when paired with black eyeliner for a night out, but for a little splash during the day I have been wearing it with a sparkly bronze liner. Has anyone else been trying this trend?!

Loving these colors:

Beauty Counter

I have been a Beauty Counter consultant for the past year and  I cannot express how much I love this company and their products! Beauty Counter has opened my eyes to dark side of the beauty industry that I love so much. Did you know the last time The United States passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products was in 1938?!  The European Union has band or restricted more than 1,300 ingredients in the last twenty years and the US has only banned 11 to date. We are just a little behind the times don’t ya think? What I love about Beauty Counter is that it’s not just about providing safe skin care and cosmetics, but raising awareness to try and change an industry that is filled with secrets. I never once thought some of my favorite lip glosses contained toxins that are harmful to female reproduction or that my favorite body lotion caused dry skin! I’m not the only one to catch on, Alesandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, Lauren Conrad and Gwen Paltrow have sang Beauty Counter’s praises and products have been gracing the inside of magazine pages!

IMG_9004I’ll be posting some of my favorite products and links to articles featuring Beauty Counter. If you want to check out products please visit my  Beauty Counter site or email me if you have interest in being a consultant yourself! It’s a great way to meet wonderful people, spread awareness and use the most amazing products that are safe for you!
