Well ladies, I’ve decided to add more beauty to the blog. In a sense of makeup & beauty products. I have lots of titles but one other than blogger, wife, mother is that I’m also a trained and qualified aesthetician. So don’t ask me why now after three years of blogging I’ve only started to want to chat more about this kind of stuff. I guess I was very leave your work at work type. But since I’m not full time working as an aesthetician anymore I thought it might be fun to start chatting more. I’ll be adding my favourite beauty products and real tips and advice for you once a week!
Starting today with My Minimalist Makeup Bag Top Picks. I’m a believer in less is more when it comes to makeup and if your going to wear it, quality is key with everything. I use to always cheap out on makeup and use whatever. But I always got so disappointed with it. It got so frustrating. Once I found some really awesome quality pieces I just stay with them. A lot of these picks are not only clean makeup but many of them heal the skin as well.
- JANE IREDALE | DREAM TINT
SPF 15, lightweight and perfect colour especially in the Summer. This is a natural tinted moisturizer and covers about 80%. It’s not heavy or chalky feeling at all. It gives such a perfect glow! If I want a little more coverage in Winter or nights out I wear Jane Iredale BB Cream. Best coverage ever.
2. JANE IREDALE | MASCARA BLACK
So I totally have a huge crush on mineral makeup, even more so when it comes to around the eyes. My eyes are super sensitive already and this stuff brings out my lashes and doesn’t bug them at all. I do replace it more often because mineral mascara does go bad a little faster.
3. CLOVE & HALLOW | MINERAL FOUNDATION
This pairs perfectly with my concealers. It lasts a long time and is super lightweight!
4. JANE IREDALE | BLUSH
Love these colours. Cheekie is my go to, it’s such a natural pink!
5. JANE IREDALE | SHIMMER POWDER
Gives the lids a little shimmer and colour. Such a pretty colour!
6. CLOVE & HALLOW | CONCEAL + CORRECT
So awesome to have out and about. Love this quick little fixer to any spots or around the eyes! Coverage is so good.
7. KPURE | SMOOCH
If you ever own one lip balm it has to be SMOOCH. This is by far the best I’ve ever owned. I have 3 on the go around my home. It’s even safe for little ones to wear as well.
8. JANE IREDALE | HANDY BRUSH
This baby has lasted me the last four years and still as good as new. I’ll quickly hash it with natural hand soap and let it dry overnight and it’s good to go!
9. CLOVE & HALLOW | LIP GLAZE BUBBLY
Not sticky at all. So impressed with this light natural colour and look. So perfect for any occasion and goes with everything!
I’m a mineral makeup junkie. I love it all and totally think everyone should make the plunge and buy mineral makeup. It’s so much healthier and treats your skin so much nicer. It natural restores and heals. Plus, if you find a brand you love and is budget friendly stick with it!
