                            I FINALLY get to tell you guys about these amazing skin care products I got a few days ago from Perfectly Posh! Long story short Leyna Kee, who happens be a consultant for the company, reached out to me and HAND PICKED (I know shocking, most consultants throw things together) certain skin care as well as body care products adjacent to my skin cares needs, as well as wants.  She was extremely thorough and continues to be available for questions I have, the best part is she answers HONESTLY, something many don’t do as they would rather make a buck then friend! Why is this all important? Well, I did use the Apricots Overnight facial mask BEFORE doing this tutorial, my skin was 100% smoother and looked radiant, something I hardly get from facials masks.  Be sure to give her a buzz and let HER KNOW that Lillee sent you, click this for her link and be sure to purchase FROM this link–the products are cruelty free (hell yes) and vegan, something I have been longing for, most products make me break out due to the harsh UN-needed chemicals such as petroleum and plastic! I will be posting a review video probably around Saturday night, I want to ensure my review is complete and honest, thus I’m giving myself a few days to test and photograph results :). Once I removed the facial mask with warm water and a cleaned towel I then added a beaker full of my favorite Fresh Seaberry Oil to all zones of my face, including out towards my hairline and under my neck! I noticed the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer has been VERY beneficial to my skin lately, I have a feeling it has to do with the priming base acting as “shield” against the products being added on top, this obviously prevents clogged pores BUT at the same time this shrinks them, how cool is that? As always I took a teeeeeny amount of the product onto the tips of my fingers and gently smoothed into my skin starting from the center, out towards my hairline! This dries instantly so I was able to quickly move onto the foundation stage, I opted in for a lightweight SPF foundation just because the weather IS changing and I don’t want to risk frecklage right now, too many is equally as dangerous as having a sun burn.  With that being said I took ONE pump of my Hourglass Veil Fluid Foundation and gently stippled it across all zones of my face using a Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush, most of the product was disbursed across areas with dried up acne/hives to tame the scab like texture!

            I went for a more “subtle” cream contouring effect today as I wasn’t digging my typical brightened highlight look, especially with such a eye catching illuminator the highlight should be as natural as possible! To reach that goal though it seems impossible since cream contouring molds our dream faces I simply used the shades Nude and Cinnamon provided by the ABH Cream Contour Kit, Cinnamon blends out like a bronzer and Nude blends in one shade lighter than my normal skin tone, it all works. Placement wise Nude was taken under my eyes in inverted triangles, down the bridge of my nose, across both jaw lines, on my chin as well as on my forehead using a cleaned Sephora Concealer Brush! Cinnamon was placed down the sides of my nose as well as in the hollows of my cheeks, on my jaw lines, and under my lips for added definition. Keep in mind these are MY IDEAL places to contour as well as highlight, many people love to do their forehead, since my face shape is oval-heart this is unnecessary for me, do what looks best for YOU! To blend in the creams I took my brand new Elf Ultimate Blending Brush and began to stipple in the creams starting from my jaw line up, I like to work in clockwise motions to ensure the MOST natural and bearable blend is created, we don’t wanna look like drag queens, just ourselves but better ;). Do be aware stippling motions create a much heavier coverage as opposed to straight out circular blending motions, both are acceptable however since this does have the concept of prom in mind I would recommend the first blending mechanism, unless you’re using a sponge, in that case go to town girl!
