Wonders with Browns

Hello all,

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Whenever I go shopping for eye shadows, I am always drawn towards the browns. I love a good neutral look. You can use browns to go for a smokey look or you could use them for an every day natural look. All upto you!

Here is a look that I wanted to  share with y'all. This eye makeup look can be work for a more dramatic day look or a night look.

First, I applied a shade called Queen Tiffany from Bare Minerals, all over the lid. Next, I used a shaded called Dark Chocolate for the crease. This is also from BE. In the inner corners of my eye, I used a highlight from BE called Queen Phyllis. To line my toplashes, I used Tarte's waterproof Amazonian Clay liner. For my bottom lashes/waterline I used BE's round the clock waterproof liner in the shade Midnight. For mascara I used  Origins Ginzing mascara.

 This look is very easy to recreate. I hope you all enjoy! Leave me a comment below if you like it!

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer

Hello everyone!

Sorry I dropped off the radar for a while. I have been vacationing since June, so internet connection is hard to come by.

Origins released another product in their GinZing line. This time, it's a moisturizer!I ordered it when it first came out in April, and I have been loving it ever since I started using it.

It retails around $26.50 for 1.7oz. Good price considering their other moisturizers are about $13 more.  The consistency is very light, and gel-y like in texture and actually it is quite hydrating considering the fact that it is an oil-free moisturizer. This is perfect for the summer months in my opinion. The smell is slightly citrus-y but not overwhelming at all.

When applied, I think that my skin looks brighter instantly. A lot of people in my household have noticed that as well. So it really gives you that boost of energy, similar to what the eye -cream from the line does for tired-looking eyes.

I personally would not recommend this for older skins unless one has oily skin. I feel like mature skins would require something thicker. But, if you are looking for an everyday moisturizer which has no anti-aging properties whatsoever I would totally recommend this. My 15 year old sister uses it as well and she loves it. I have dry skin and she has oily skin so it works for all skin types. It absolutely does not leave a greasy residue when applied and in fact I think it absorbs completely into the skin, making you feel as though you have nothing on your skin.

Would I recommend this to a friend? Most definitely, you cannot go wrong with this moisturizer. I am looking forward to the Origins holiday kits so I can grab another one of these.
