hydrating makeup

  • Me : *washes my face frequently*
  • Me : *washes my makeup off completely*
  • Me : *uses face masks to care for my skin*
  • Me : *drinks water to stay hydrated*
  • Me : *moisturizes*
  • Skin : *allows one tiny pimple to show*
  • Me : You ungrateful fucking child. How dare you. After all I've given you, this is how you repay me?


Many of you have requested a look that isn’t too gory, and that was relatively easy to replicate - so here it is! 

This look is in association with the skincare brand, Simple
One question I get asked a lot around this time of the year is; 

How Do You Remove Your Halloween MakeUp?’ 

The answer is… Oil. And Simple have just launched their Hydrating Cleansing Oil, which is very exciting for me as I love to use Simple due to my sensitive skin needs.
Oil breaks down ALL forms of makeup. This is something we learned in college when talking about the process of proper makeup removal.

Stay tuned to the end of the tutorial to see just how effective the cleansing oil is. 

sorry--notsorry  asked:

“Whenever I apply foundation on my dry skin it always looks dry and flaky. What’s the trick to preventing that? ”

Having dry skin I know the struggle of flaky, dry, unnatural looking foundation all to well and it’s something I used to constantly suffer from on a day to day basis. Luckily over time I’ve found a few cures to fixing flaky skin and making makeup look great.

Give your cosmetics stash an international makeover.

Anyone who’s obsessed with dewy skin knows that K-Beauty is your perfect complexion ticket. But, beyond the waterfall of hydrating skincare, Korean makeup brands are also coloring the world with bright, playful cosmetics that are equally deserving of our attention. A trio of standout brands has especially piqued our interest, and we’ve highlighted their top-notch products below. JESSICA VELEZ

THE BRAND: Too Cool For School

Like the doodles you scribbled during chemistry class, Too Cool For School’s packaging is quirky, funny, and filled with dinosaurs. As the name would suggest, the brand thinks rules ought to be broken and you can find unconventional yet pretty and functional products in its arsenal.

THE STAR PRODUCTS: Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Balm

This pot of jelly lip balm makes lips slick and shiny, not greasy or sticky, and the spilled wine shade smells exactly like cherry soda.

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cushy Blusher

Tired of pink powder falling out and landing on your jeans? Or creamy blush staining your fingers? The Cushy Blusher takes away all the messy work. Instead, squeeze the tube and apply the puff cushion to your apples for a soft, luminizing, and healthy-looking flush in peach or pink shades.

THE BRAND: Chosungah 22

As fun to use as it is to say, Chosungah 22 creates edgy packaging that gives a punch of impact to the eyes. The products are innovative, yet intuitive so you can create looks that aim to highlight your best features instead of hiding flaws.

THE STAR PRODUCT: Chosungah 22 Dong Gong Minn Jello Color Eyeshadow Palette

What we love about this eye palette case is the six shadows’ pillowy soft texture. That’s a result of its jelly formula (hence Jello in the name). The texture patterns between matte and shiny and come in muted tones that work for day and night.

THE BRAND: Touch In Sol

If you are keen on what’s new and trendy in beauty, then Touch In Sol should be on your radar. Beyond its flirty graphic designs, the brand focuses on staying ahead of the curve and testing out new innovations in science and style.

THE STAR PRODUCT: Touch In Sol Brow Gellin Gel Eyebrow Styler

Everything you need to fill in sculpted, feathery brows comes in this easy-to-carry stick. Uncap the head to reveal the slanted brush, and then untwist the opposite end to expose the pot of gel-based wax formula. Then, dip the brush in the pot, and you’re on your way to sparseness-free brows.



Brand founder Maureen Kelly reveals the next wave in hydrating skincare and makeup.

For truly parched skin, the dewy look can feel 20,000 leagues under the sea—in other words, completely out of reach. But tarte has literally explored the depths of the ocean in order to source ingredients that drench skin in hydration. Its new Rainforest of the Sea collection, which includes both skincare and makeup products, is rich in algae and other marine plants that provide enough hydration and radiance to make jellyfish envious. The Sephora Glossy chatted with tarte founder Maureen Kelly to bring the collection to the surface. JESSICA VELEZ


“The entire collection is powered by our new Rainforest of the Sea complex, which is a proprietary blend of algae and marine flower extracts. These ingredients are really special because they thrive in environments with extreme conditions, from hot to cold temperatures and darkness to UV exposure. In order to withstand these conditions, they’re made up of high concentrations of antioxidants, proteins, and minerals to naturally defend themselves. So, we’ve infused these benefits into our products as nature’s ultimate defense for skin.”


“With our high-performance naturals mission, we have been infusing our products with ingredients from the rainforest for years. My team and I had been on the hunt for our next big ingredient for a while. Discovering the amazing marine ingredients from the Rainforest of the Sea made for the perfect complement to our tarte core line—it’s all about hydration, brightening, and environmental defense. We’re also really obsessed with all of the water trends that are emerging. Dewy, radiant skin is in!”  


“Our Rainforest of the Sea complex, along with the other moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients in these formulas, helps protect and nourish skin while reflecting light for a radiant, glowing appearance—because who doesn’t want to look like a mermaid? The ingredients work in harmony to soothe, replenish, and hydrate skin while powerful antioxidants help protect from daily aggressors and activate skin renewal for that youthful look we all want.” 


“I’m absolutely obsessed with some of the new skincare, like our Deep Dive Cleansing Gel and Marine Boosting Mist. They’ve become my everyday go-tos since they’re hypoallergenic and great for my sensitive skin. The cleanser removes all of my waterproof makeup (as you can imagine I’m constantly testing new products and then taking them off) but it never leaves my skin feeling dry. The mist works great as a setting spray and I love using it throughout the day. The caffeine and delicious orange scent give me a perfect afternoon pick-me-up.


The makeup formulas are all so luxe and amazing, but my current obsessions are the So Fine Micro Liner and Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette since I’m all about defined eyes and an awakened glow. The liner tip is teeny tiny and great for tightlining eyes with a waterproof, triple-black pigment. The lighting palette has three silky strobing powders that reflect light, brighten skin, and correct darkness—it’s really all you need for an allover glow.”

Aquacealer Hydrating Concealer: “It’s perfect for drier skin types and features concentrated pigments suspended in a deep conditioning serum made up of 20% water for the perfect blend of coverage and moisture. I love to use it under my eyes because the applicator makes it so easy to apply and it has a full-coverage, radiant finish.”

Water Foundation SPF 15: “This is my absolute favorite foundation because it is insanely hydrating, is hypoallergenic, and covers like a dream! Like our Aquacealer Concealer, this concentrated formula is 20% water to quench dry skin while offering 12-hour full coverage. It’s powered by our Rainforest of the Sea complex and non-chemical SPF 15 sunscreen to help restore, brighten, and defend skin. It also has a unique dropper applicator for customizable coverage and comes in a ton of shades to match any skintone.”


“My team did an absolutely amazing job capturing the essence of the sea with this really luxurious collection. The packaging stays true to our colorful, fun, and playful tarte aesthetic with elevated gold accents, chic ocean-inspired prints, and elegant ombré finishes.”


“These products are all about that glow, and there are so many ways to create it—whether you’re literally highlighting your cheekbones with the Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette or brightening up darkness with the color-correcting palette. One of my favorite new tricks is going for radiance through your skincare—we call it ‘glowtion.’ The drink of H2O and the hydrating boost is the perfect daily moisture to make your skin glow on its own without makeup.”


anonymous asked:

Do you know of any affordable dupes/options for the MAC fix+? Or any other sprays that make my make up instantly look settled (like I've had it on for a few hours)?

You can buy super affordable hydrating setting sprays or even make your own!

To make your own you can use any mixture of rose water (soothing, antibacterial) , vegetable glycerin (moisturizing, binding, sets your makeup, you only need a few drops), aloe leaf juice (calming), witch hazel (anti bacterial, mattifying), filtered/distilled water. You can even use essential oils or cold pressed rose oil if you want it to be more moisturizing and more like a treatment. Just keep in mind these DIY sprays expire quicker and only last a few weeks and you want the bulk of the spray to be filtered water or rose water. Fix Plus is basically just vitamin infused water and glycerin. This is super customizable so pick and choose which ingredients you want to include. Also remember to shake before using!

As for sprays you can buy…
