Cover Fx Monochromatic Bronzer Duo

bronzer1

If you know me, then you know that bronzers are my favorite makeup product. I love a good bronzed glow year round. I especially love shimmery and satin bronzers so when Cover Fx recently launched their monochromatic blush and bronzer duos, I knew I had to pick one up.

They released several blush shades and two bronzer shades. I picked up the lighter bronzer in the shade Sunkissed. The left side is a satin bronzer and the right side is a stunning, shimmery bronzer. I’ve used it twice now and each time I take my brush and tap into both sides. I have no tried each side by itself but I probably wouldn’t wear them individually anyway.

The formula blends beautifully and doesn’t look red on my face. It’s a nice neutral bronzer which is ideal for me because I have Rosacea on my cheeks. I try to stay away from very warm, redish bronzers since I already have a lot of redness on my cheeks.

I would definitely recommend this bronzer and I really want to try one of the blushes now that I know I love the bronzer.

Did you pick one of these up or want to? What do you think?

My Current Favorite Brow Product

My makeup changes on a day to day basis depending if I’m going to work or going out. I don’t have a set routine, but one product I never leave the house without applying, is a brow product. I have always been a pomade kind of gal because I have naturally full brows that don’t need much shaping or defining. I always thought that a pencil product was better for people with thinner, unshapely brows who need a little extra help creating brows.

One morning before work, instead of reaching for my usual ABH dip brow pomade, I decided to try my Winky Lux Uni-Brow Universal pencil I had gotten in a Boxycharm a while back. This product has a similar tip to the ABH Brow Definer. It has a thicker, angular tip instead of a tiny pencil tip. This style works much better for me because I can quickly cover more space. The smaller tip pencils are better for people who need to create brows and draw lines.

I have been using the Winky Lux pencil regularly for two weeks and I love it. I don’t know if I will ever go back to a pomade. One thing I noticed is that my brows seem thicker than ever! It seems like the product promoted hair growth which seems impossible but just something I noticed.

I have the limited edition packaging version but I will link the product in it’s normal packaging that is available for purchase.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Cleansing balms are my favorite product for removing makeup. I find that they are most effective and super quick. I have a few holy grail favorites, but I am always in the market to try a new one.

I stopped by Ulta after work in need of a new balm. I saw that the Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm received good reviews online, so I picked up the sample size to try.

After giving it a go tonight, I have to say I really like it. It went on kind of greasy and thick at first which worried me. I thought it would leave a greasy residue as some cleansing balms do, but this washed off completely clean leaving no residue. I have to use it a few more times before I can decide if the full size is worth the $64 price tag but so far, so good!

Nail the Perfect Gallery Wall

gallery-wall-ideas

Gallery walls are the perfect way to create a focal point in any room. They allow you to use your creativity to find pieces that work cohesively together to create one giant piece of art. They are great for large walls that need a little extra help. Executing your gallery wall can seem a bit daunting, so here are my steps that make it fool proof.

Step One: Find Your Wall and Decide on a Theme
Figure out which wall you want to showcase your gallery. Take notice of the feel of the room, the colors and the design aesthetic. You want your gallery wall to make sense with the design of your room. Use your creative instincts to decide what kind of art would look good in your room. Whether it be all black and white photos for a modern minimalistic look, or a tropical theme like the photo below. Make sure you have a defined theme.

Step Two: Sketch Out Your Wall
No artist skills needed here. Just a blank piece of paper and a pencil will suffice. This process will help you visualize your wall and make it easy when it comes time to finding art. If you already have the art you wish to use, look through each piece and then sketch it out.

Step Three: Find Your Art
When I decided I wanted to create a gallery wall. I found a website called Desenio that sells posters and frames. They have an incredible selection and frames to fit your posters. They make it super easy to create a theme for your wall if you’re finding it difficult to do it alone.

Step Four: Measure and Tape
A partner comes in handy for this step. Use your sketch as a guide and depending on your spacing preference, measure your layout. Mark the measurements with pencil or tape.

Step Five: Hang and Voilà, You’re Done!
This step pretty much defines itself. After hanging your pictures, take a step back and make sure everything is level and to your liking. You can always make adjustments later.
