Burberry Lip Crush

LifestyleKelsey WhiteComment

Burberry's new Lip Velvet Crush is the lip stain I have been waiting for! The variety of shades offer buildable coverage that leave a matte, powdery finish. It’s a beautiful no-smudge strain that leaves the lips feeling flushed, moisturized and ALIVE! My favorite color is Tangerine Red for the perfect summer pop.

Beauty Spotlight: Shiseido Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother

LifestyleKelsey White5 Comments

Every beauty routine starts with a good base. It took me until I was in my mid-twenties to realize how important it is to prep your skin before applying makeup! I'm currently obsessing over Shiseido's Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother that acts like a blurring filter, reducing the appearance of my pores.

The product can be applied before or after makeup application, but I personally like to use it in place of my primer. It serves a perfect first step by prepping my skin with a velvety finish. Most primers that I've used in the past feel silicone heavy and suffocating. This lightweight mixture feels like a magic balm and the results are instant! The pocket size packaging is also a major plus. 

I apply a small amount to my fingertips, and pat evenly while focusing on the t-zone. The Oil Targeting Micro Powder quickly absorbs the excess sebum on skin's surface, diffuses light, and enhances moisture. It's perfect to use anytime under or over makeup for a fresh, matte look that is #selfieready. 

As mentioned, it's incredibly important to start your beauty routine with a good base in order to set the stage for your makeup to last throughout the day. This product is the perfect step to ensure a lasting finish, but also portable enough to take with me when traveling for any last minute touch-ups. Thank you Shiseido for partnering with me on this post.

I plan on doing a post of my makeup routine with specific products I use, so stay tuned for that! 

Top 5 Foundations

Lifestyle, makeupKelsey White2 Comments

Next to skincare, good foundation is a EVERYTHING. I have to say, I've tried almost every foundation (thank you Ulta + Sephora for murdering me of my time and money) and I wanted to do a post to share my top 5 to save you the hassle. In my experience, these are the BEST foundations that deliver a flawless complexion. What are your go-to foundations? Comment your favorites below!

1. IT! Cosmetics // Your Skin But Butter CC+ Cream with SPF 50

This is my #1 choice for every day foundation. A sales person at Ultra recommended it to me after I told her that I have extremely sensitive skin, but still like a good amount of coverage. The finish is luminous and it covers up much more than typical BB or CC cream. The fact that it has SPF 50 is awesome too! It really is your skin, but better.  I use the medium shade and apply it with the IT! Cosmetics foundation brush.

2. Bare Minerals // bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation SPF 20

A tone correcting foundation and hydrating skin care serum in one. This foundation is super lightweight with adjustable coverage. I like to use this during colder months when my skin is dull and needs a dewy brightness. My shade is Bare Natural 07. 

3. Lancome // Teint Idole Ultra 24h Long Wear Foundation

The best foundation for a night out. It's an oil-free, long wearing foundation with a velvety-matte finish (which is great for photos!) It's full coverage but without feeling heavy or cakey. My skin feels SUPER smooth after using this and it also helps with redness. I use shade 330 Bisque N. 

4. Tarte // Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15

A long lasting foundation with a thicker texture. It has a matte finish, good coverage, and is paraben + sulfate free. I like to use this one in the summer when my skin is oily. My shade is Light/Medium Beige. 

5. Makeup Forever // Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation

An HD foundation developed specifically for the film and TV industry's harsh lighting. If you plan to be on camera or be photographed, this is the foundation to use! It has a medium, buildable coverage that is 100% natural. Makeup Forever also has a great variety of shades. I use the shade 120 Soft Sand.

My current rotation of nude lipsticks. 

I've been getting a ton of comments lately on my Instagram about what lip color I use, so I've decided to do a round up on my cult favorites! I'm always on the hunt for the perfect nude lippy - not too pink, not too pale with a tint of brown. Here are a few of my go-to's in my makeup bag right now!
