If, like me, you live in the tundra- you’ll find that even going out to get the mail or walk the dogs will affect your skin.
It seems to get worse for me every year as my skin becomes less “teenage” and more “old hag”, making it dryer and dryer.
To combat this, when i know i’m going to be spending any considerable periods of time outside in the winter, i like to coat my face and neck in Weleda’s Cold Cream.
I do have oily/ combination skin but it responds really well to oil cleansers and skin oils so this very rich cream is perfect for me; it hydrates the dry areas but doesn’t make the oilier areas break out.
I was just out in the cold for an hour and my skin was still moist and protected when i got home.
I’d definitely recommend this for avid outdoor enthusiasts in the winter. It will create a shield from the elements.
I haven’t tried it but it looks like a nice natural, ethical company from the info i read on their website.
Check reviews on websites who sell their products and see which might be best for you- thats what i do!
What do you guys know about bio sculpt gel nails using forms?
I’d like to learn how to do it but just wondering how strong they are/ how well they hold up etc..
Any information would be appreciated.
My favorite foundation for dry skin is the Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation. You should still be able to find it at Ulta or Sephora. The finish is beautiful and its very kind to dry skin.
For a lighter coverage i’d recommend the Tarte Tinted Treatment 12 hr Primer. I use this daily and find it really helps keep my skin happy.
The great thing about Tarte is that they carry both cool and warm tones but also neutrals which can be especially good for really pale tones as the warm and cools can sometimes be too extreme.
I know your skin is dry so it might seem counterintuitive but i really like their Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation. It also comes in an array of colors and leaves such a beautiful, non-powdery finish.
Clearly Tarte are my favorites for foundations but i’ve had such great results with them i couldn’t not share.
I bought the pro makeup brush set from Furless a few months ago now and have used the brushes on both myself and clients (i probably use around half of them in my kit).
The brushes perform well, look great and clean very easily.
They are in Australia but mine arrived so fast!
Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for some new, cruelty free brushes.
Playing around with @occmakeup last night and found a few new favorites; rust on the eyes and newt on the cheeks ☺️ #beauty #vegan #crueltyfree #occ
- Yes. Or is there a friendship quiz somewhere i should be taking to quantify my knowing?
- Thank you thank you! I need to record more, i’ve just been so busy traveling. I’ll try and make some next week that i can queue :)
- This is it. My hair is my natural color just with lightened ends.
-I do drink coffee but i’m not a fan of flavored ones. I really like Illy coffees. Teeccino make de-caf coffees in tea bags that are delicious and naturally flavored.
- Hi!! Yes, makeup is my main job. Its a great one to fill the time when we’re not traveling.
- One love organics easy does it, Weleda cold cream, One love organics eye balm, some sort of Moroccan/ Argan oil, Tarte Gifted Mascara and Anastasia brow wiz.
- If i remember rightly, BIG is the one with sea salt in, i wouldn’t use that with microlinks personally because i’d think the salt would likely get clogged into the micro links.. use a thinner formula of shampoo and i’d think it’d be fine. Something really clarifying so the roots don’t get yucky,
I’ve tried other synthetic kabukis and none really compare to Sigma’s.
For more day-to-day makeup i like to use their round kabuki to buff the product in, i also use it very gently around my eyes.
To get a really full coverage finish i like to use the flat top kabuki and press the product into the skin and lightly buff if/where needed.
