peach and gold shimmer.

hi! this is the face i've been wearing in the hot, dry CA heat. it's light, bright and easy to do. i've been using the skin iceland nordic peels on the reg now thanks to katie jane hughes. they feel incredible and really prep the skin for makeup. since this look consists of creams mostly, i use a fan to dry each layer before applying the next. it really helps the product adhere to my skin and prevents degradation of the layers. next i use a generous amount of embryolisse cream concentrate. (all the products are linked at the end of the post!) this shit is some real magical sorcery. every year the pilgrimage west from south florida dries the fuc out of my skin. this stuff undoes the damage. after the em. cream absorbs, i apply my milk makeup sunshine skin tint. (if i were going be spending the afternoon out, i'd add an additional sunscreen under the skin tint, i have a few that kill it under makeup... that will be for another post.) this is a super buildable formula, so go crazy, i'm wearing shade light, and focus on my cheeks because they get super red. #irish i then add tart shape tape in light just to the areas directly west and east of my italian nose. i love this step and think it just brightens your face beautifully and makes your cheeks look big and plump. after that sets i gild my lids and a few other high points on my face with the milk gold foil. i then re-redden my cheeks with milk cheek tint in perk, and clean up few shiny spots with unpowder. lastly i apply a tarte water based lipstick in shade sundaze. the application is sloppy, so i loosely clean up the edges and leave them a bit blurred. (i don't usually wear mascara; in the photos i'm wearing tarte gifted, because that's the ONLY ONE I WILL WEAR, but in the video i forgo that step to give my lashes a break.)

what are your fav products to get through these sweltering summers that feel like we're dwelling within the balls of the devil? i don't see this heating trend ending anytime soon, but that's for another post on another blog.  xo.

please excuse my background; we're prepping our house to renovate and it's a shit show.
