I’ve had such a hard time finding a makeup wipe that is not only gentle enough to not make my sensitive skin break out, but also effective enough to remove even my most stubborn waterproof makeup. Recently I decided to purchase the Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towlettes and I have fallen in love! These wipes are formulated for normal skin, ( as opposed to their Sensitive Skin, Normal to Oily, Normal to Dry Exfoliating, or Normal to Dry cleansing wipes), and works so well on my skin. Although I almost always wash my face before I go to sleep, (and YOU should too), these wipes give you a chance to take the day off and let your skin breathe before you cleanse it at night. Or, these wipes can be useful to remove your makeup before swimming, before working out, or before trying out a different makeup look!

You can purchase these wipes pretty much anywhere! I picked mine up at CVS, but you can also purchase them at Target or a Walmart!

When it comes to summertime, there is nothing I hate more than wearing a full face of makeup. I have always been very minimalistic when it comes to using products on my skin and it has taken me awhile to find the perfect balance between achieving a medium to full coverage look while using little to no product. I think I’ve finally found my holy grail item for just that!

ºMaybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector:  This product offers perfect coverage for your undereyes as well as for blemishes without looking thick or cakey. Also because this product is infused with ACTYL C, (an antioxidant), that actually works to help heal your skin. (Obviously I wouldn’t rely on this alone to heal acne).

  • Shade: In the winter I normally use this shade while in the summer I use this one.

ºTo Apply: Instead of putting the wand directly onto my undereyes and blemishes, I take the wand and dab a dime-sized amount of product onto the back of my hand. From there I take my Sonia Kashuk Multipurpose Brush, dab it into the product, and apply it on my skin with a light stippling motion. I don’t like putting the wand directly onto my face because I don’t want to transfer any dirt or impurity from my skin back into the product. This way, I can ensure that every single time I use my concealer, I’m not using a product that has been affected by use on troubled skin.

ºSonia Kashuk Flat Top Multipurpose Brush: I purchased my brush at Target as part of a Limited Edition four piece core makeup brush set. I absolutely love this brush because it doesn’t soak up a lot of product into the bristles and it blends my concealer so naturally. If you aren’t interested in purchasing this entire set of brushes, you can purchase the brush separately here!

                    Be prepared for ANY weather in these amazing and fashionable Hunter boots! I wear these boots not only on rainy days like today, but even in the winter months when there’s snow on the ground. (For extra warmth during winter wear, you can purchase these boot socks!) I love the matte finish on these boots as opposed to their high-gloss option. Also, I recommend choosing an easy-to-pair color such as olive (pictured), black, grey, or blue. If you’re looking for a completely different style, check out Hunter’s short cut boots here!
