My Favorite Spring Blushes!

Hi Beauties! Spring is officially here, and I am ecstatic! Spring is my favorite season: the flowers, the warmer weather, and the gorgeous makeup! Today I will be talking about my top blushes for spring, I hope you all enjoy!

 

 

 

 

NARS Blush in Torrid

This blush is a true coral with a hint of pink, and subtle gold shimmer. It is stunning when lightly applied to the apples of your cheeks, and gives you a very springy glow! It is a highly pigmented blush, and applies like a  dream! You can buy it at Sephora (sephora.com) for $28.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Fresh Pink

I adore this blush! The texture is kinda crazy, but it actually applies really well! The shade Fresh Pink is very pigmented, and comes off on your cheeks in a bright bubblegum pink hue. It is not an overpowering, barbie pink, but a fresh pink, as its shade name is called. A lot of people are quite skeptical about the bouncy blushes, but I love them, and definitely recommend them! You can buy it at any drugstore for about $7-8.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cha Cha Tint

Cha Cha tint is a coraly-mango-orange cheek and lip tint. It has a very gel like consistency, which I personally love! The color is very pigmented and can be quite overpowering on the cheeks, but when applies lightly, it gives a tangerine orange glow, which is beautiful! It radiates on my skin, and definitely compliments my olive skin tone. You can buy it for $29 at Sephora (sephora.com).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface

I recently purchased this blush (you can see it in my last post!) but I already am head over heels in LOVE with it! The soft baby pink hue is soft and delicate, but once on your cheeks, it brightens up and looks absolutely flawless! The consistency is smooth and airy, and it does last all day! I love this blush, and can’t wait to try  more from this line! You can buy it from Sephora (sephora.com) for $25.

So those are all my latest  blush craves! In the comments, tell me what blushes are you super excited to wear this spring! Hope you enjoyed!

My Everyday Makeup Routine!

Hi Beauties! So as this website is called Natural Glamour, I decided to show you how I do my everyday makeup. It’s sort of a minimal-makeup-is-best kind of routine, as I don’t like to wear a ton. Anyways, here is the look I have been wearing a TON lately, hope you like it!

1) MOISTURIZER

I start by taking my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, and pumping about one and half times onto the back of my hand. I dot this on my face, and then blend it evenly all over into my skin. This moisturizer is great: it’s cooling, and controls oil!

 

2)  CONCEALER

I take my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer and place this under my eyes, and on any other problem areas. I love the way this concealer brightens up my under eye area, and makes me seem awake!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) POWDER

I apply a pressed powder (that is basically translucent) under my eyes to set the concealer, and on any areas where I know I will be oily: my forehead, nose, and chin. I am using the NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Powder in 704A Warm Beige, and applying it with the powder end of my double sided Sephora face brush.

 

 

 

4) BLUSH

I am taking my Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in the shade Peach Satin on a Sephora small stippling blush. I get a bit of the blush on my brush, and start to stipple it on my cheeks. Once I’ve done that, I blend it in up to my temples using small circular motions. This blush gives my cheeks a gorgeous luminous sheen, which is to die for!

 

 

 

5) HIGHLIGHTER

Taking my mini NARS Illuminator in Copacabana, I apply a small amount of this to my cheekbones.

 

 

 

6) PRIMER AND SHADOW

I first prime my eyes with the Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original). I then take my Naked2 palette by Urban Decay and lightly sweep suspect over my lids. Remember, lightly!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7)  MASCARA

I apply a bit of the Urban Decay Super Curl Mascara to my upper lashes, which gives them the perfect lift!

 

 

 

 

6) LIPS

Grabbing my Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment, I apply this to my lips, which is the perfect way to finish off my look!

 

 

 

So there you have my everyday makeup routine. It’s fresh, luminous, and quite natural. In the comments, tell me what your everyday routine consists of, and what product makes it complete! Hope you enjoyed!

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips

Hi Beauties! Today I am going to be reviewing the Maybelline Baby Lips (Around $4, any drugstore) I am absolutely ADORE these lip balms, and can’t wait to share them with you!

Baby Lips have been a pretty popular item recently, drawing people in with their fun colors, scents, and packaging. They are moisturizing chapsticks in a variety of shades!

At first, I thought they were just chapsticks, with not-so-great pigmentation and a chalky texture. But I was completely wrong! I decided to pick one up (the Peppermint one) before a ski trip, because I needed a new chapstick, especially one with SPF (Baby Lips have SPF 20). Once I tried it, I immediately loved it. They are moisturizing, smooth, and simply amazing! I was obsessed.

Once I got back from the ski trip, I picked up two more (the Cherry and Grape ones). These two are tinted, and are just as good as the Peppermint one. They provide a sheer wash of color, that is perfect for everyday use. They last long, and are super moisturizing, too!

Baby Lips are my new favorite lip balms, FOR SURE. They are affordable, moisturizing, they have SPF (which is hard to find!) and make me happy with their bright colors and packaging. The ones I own are Peppermint, Cherry Me, and Grape Vine.

I definitely recommend these, and suggest checking out your local drugstore for them! I included some pictures down below of the Baby Lips, and tell me in the comments if you like Baby Lips, and which colors I should try next!
