FIVE MINUTE MAKEUP WITH MERIT

// merit makeup //

I shot a super candid Merit five minute makeup look for the brand and it’s honestly, my favorite makeup look yet. Mostly because it’s totally minimal, and gives an instant glow. Here is what I used for these flushed cheeks and bitten lips. As Merit says, less is more, and I totally agree. 

Perfection Complexion Stick in CREAM.

Cheek Color in MOOD.

Volumizing pomade for brows in BROWN.

Tinted Lip Oil in SANGRIA.

Lengthening Mascara in PERFECT BLACK.

PLAYING MERMAID

Tips for playing mermaid at home. Throw on a long gown. Wet your hair. Go wild with the eyeliner. Sometimes you want to feel supernatural. 

BLOOMING. JILL STUART BEAUTY.

It’s spring, wear flowers! I took a Jill Stuart Beauty masterclass this month and it was all about super natural skin, pinks, and playing with dried flowers for an editorial look. Totally brilliant. I am all about really clean skin and a fresh face lately. Less is more. Jill Stuart Beauty inspired me to recreate and shoot this look, just for you, representing growth and rebirth this season. How are you blooming this spring?  

WORTH THE INVESTMENT: VALMONT’S l’ ELIXIR DES GLACIERS

// Valmont l’ Elixir des Glaciers Fluide Merveille and Creme Merveilleuse //

This new collection is from Valmont‘s most prestigious skincare line, l’ Elixir des Glaciers. Yes, the Creme Merveilleuse is a $1,000 cream, but it’s worth the investment if you’re really serious about boosting your anti-aging skincare routine. And here is why. The collection, Essence of Gold Sturgeon, is special. It’s cutting edge, science driven, and gives incredible results. It’s powerful in that it contains rare sturgeon DNA combined with Valmont’s oligo-mineral complex and Swiss water. It has been lifting and tightening my skin. I use the Fluide Merveille as a pre-serum and go in with a tiny bit of Creme Merveilleuse, the ultimate regenerative cream. This collection is unique and definitely worth the investment!
