Naturally Smoky with Revlon PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle

Revlon Spring Essentials

As the snow starts to melt and Spring grows nearer I find myself getting more and more excited to shed my heavy makeup and embrace something more lightweight and natural.

Spring is the season of renewal and rebirth and an ideal time to start getting you’re skin back in shape again after a rather long hibernation period. If you live in a cold environment chances are you’re exposed to frigid temperatures one minute and warm, dry heat the next as you race from outside to inside do no favors for your skin.

Mine tends to get patchy and dry around my cheeks and feels two sizes too small. Since we’re just seeing the earlier start of Spring here I’m immediately thinking of ways to spruce up my Spring makeup wardrobe and thinking of the best ways to get a natural look while shedding my dry Winter skin.

Here a few tips to get your skin in order for the Spring season and a few suggestions for a naturally smoky makeup look to compliment your complexion using the new Revlon Photo Ready Primer + Shadow Palette in Metropolitan.

Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish Premium Review & Swatches

Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish Premium 1

If you enjoyed my Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish you might be interested in hearing about Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish Premium formula.

The original Miracle Real Skin Finish comes in an oily and combination/dry skin formula. This version acts as a sunscreen, primer, whitening makeup, and sunscreen all in one.

Now bring in the Premium version and Holika Holika adds in anti-aging ingredients as well as a higher sunscreen for a beefier formula.

Which version do I prefer?


MUA Makeup Academy Intense Kisses Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

MUA Makeup Academy Intense Kisses LipGloss

I picked up some MUA Makeup Academy Intense Kisses Lip Gloss during their last sale and now I’m kicking myself for not getting more. These are quite a great formula at this price and provide an opaque finish that’s more a liquid lipstick than a gloss!

Do likey!
