My Self-Tan Routine

IMG_7587

A few years ago I started to learn a lot more about skincare and how important it is to take care of the skin you have. I learned all about anti-aging products and how important it is to protect your skin in the sun. I now use SPF 100 every time I am outside. I want to do everything I can to prevent skin cancer and to prevent wrinkles/all signs of aging. I don’t know about you but I am trying to look as young as I can for as long as I can LOL and that all starts with taking good care of your skin.

Now just because you’re taking care of your skin doesn’t mean you can’t have a gorgeous bronzed tan! I am all about self tanner now because there is just something about being tan that makes me feel much more confident and pretty.

With that being said, I have tried a ton of different self tanners over the years and I have narrowed it down to my top 3 favorites!

WHAT I USE 

(Click on the photo to shop)

1. Tan Ceuticals CC Cream Dark

tanning

I have been using this for about 3 months now and I absolutely LOVE it! So this is a lotion, not a mousse like the other two I use but I actually really like that because it is going to give you a gorgeous tan but also hydrate your skin. This needs to still be applied with a mitt (never use your bare hand) This tanning lotion also helps firm, tone and tighten your skin. Every time I use this tanning lotion I am blown away by how dark it makes me. I apply this at night, it dries just like a regular lotion so I wait a few minutes and then I get dressed. This does NOT stain my sheets. I wake up in the morning, rinse it off in the shower and then I am a bronzed goddess. This stuff is truly incredible AND it smells like coconuts…which who doesn’t love that!

2. St. Tropez Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse

fullsizeoutput_631f

This is such a great tanning mousse that I have been using for over a year and every time I use it I look like I just got back from the islands. It makes you SO dark! With this tanning mousse I like to apply it in the morning after I shower and then wear loose clothing during the day and wash it off at night before bed that way it does not get on my sheets. The most important thing to do before you use this mousse is to prep your skin which I will talk about more in this post.

3. NKD Skin Tinted Tan Mousse Dark

fullsizeoutput_631e

If you are not wanting to splurge on a self tanner then this is the one for you! It is under $20 y’all! This mousse is free of perfumes, parabens, and alcohol which is going to give you the most beautiful tan that is good for your skin. It is non-toxic, organic and cruelty free. What I love most is it has no scent and it dries incredibly fast. It gives you such a beautiful, natural tan.

HOW TO PREP YOUR SKIN

It is SUPER important to prep your skin before applying self tanner to help ensure you’re getting the most out of your application and to avoid any dry spots/streaks.

1. Shave- Very important step to make sure that your tan goes on evenly and smoothly.

2. Exfoliate- This is a MUST! It is so important to exfoliate your entire body before applying any self tanner. This is going to get rid of any dry patches and really help smooth out your skin which will help give you a gorgeous, even tan.

EXFOLIATORS

These are my two favorite exfoliators to use before I tan. Both work so well and they smell amazing too!

Soap and Glory Summer Scrubbin’

Tree Hut Moroccan Rose Shea Sugar Scrub

TANNING MITT

St. Tropez Tanning Mitt

This is under $7 and I love it. I use it multiple times before buying a new one.

fullsizeoutput_6320

 

TIPS

  • Do NOT apply any self tanner with your bare hands. It will stain them. Always use a mitt!
  • Always try to wear dark, baggy clothing after you apply any self tanner. NEVER wear white.
  • Wait at least 8 hours before washing off to give your tan enough time to develop.
  • Using the mitt, apply your self tanner in circular motions.
  • For your hands and feet NEVER go in with full product on your mitt. I do my entire body and then whatever is left on the mitt I lightly go over the tops of my feet and hands.

MY TANNING SCHEDULE

I usually self tan once a week and that day right now is on Friday nights. I like to shower, shave and exfoliate, apply my tan to my entire body, except my face and then get in some baggy clothes and drink wine and just relax, because I’m a homebody and rarely go anywhere on Friday nights LOL so that day works best for me, and then I am tanned and ready for the weekend and that is usually when I shoot a lot of my looks so I like to be super dark for those.

To help the longevity of your tan, make sure to stay away from any body washes or sunscreens that have a lot of alcohol or scents because they will strip off the color. To help maintain my tan, I make sure to use a non scented lotion all over my body everyday after I shower.

I hope this helped babes and if you have any questions at all do not hesitate to reach out!

XOXO, Britt

Top Drugstore Mascaras

When I first began my makeup journey I only used drugstore mascaras and now even though I have ventured out and have tried multiple high-end mascaras, I can honestly tell you that these 6 mascaras I am about to share with y’all from the drugstore, work just as well as any high-end mascara I’ve ever tried and they are all under $10!

Out of all the drugstore mascaras I have tried, I have narrowed it down to my top 6 favorites for y’all:

3B1E6C50-D726-428E-A4F5-6AE6F2A9BFD6.JPG

( In order from left-right)

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara:

big shot mascara

What I love about this mascara is just with one coat your lashes will instantly look fuller and fluffy! There is absolutely NO clumping with this mascara and this is the one I have been grabbing for the most lately!

L’Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara:

carbon black

If you have been following me for awhile on Instagram then you probably already know that this mascara is the OG of all mascaras! This has been my top favorite for years and I always recommend this mascara to anyone who asks for a good one because it does it ALL and you will be obsessed! I love the formula and the wand so much! It does not clump and compared to the Original Voluminous mascara, this one makes your lashes jet black which I LOVE.

Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

total temptation

I loved this mascara the second I applied it because this makes your lashes really full and thick and I love that look because I don’t always want to apply falsies and with 2 coats of this bad boy, you will have full, voluminous, fluffy lashes!

Covergirl Flourish By Lash Blast Mascara:

flourish mascara

This mascara is infused with coconut, avocado and papaya oils which helps your lashes feel conditioned! If you are into the more natural lashes look, then this mascara is for you! It gives your lashes length, separation and natural volume!

Flower Beauty Lash Warrior Mascara:

lash warrior

I remember seeing this mascara all over my Instagram feed and heard amazing reviews so of course I had to give it a try. Well, I tried it and HOLY MOLY y’all… this is a keeper! I love how full and voluminous this makes my lashes look. This wand is amazing and coats every single lash perfectly! I’m obsessed!

L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara:

lash paradise

Last, but not least we have this gem which is a great dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara! I have used both and they are for the most part the same in my opinion and this one is 1/2 the price! I love this mascara wand because it has 200+ bristles which makes sure every lash is perfectly coated! It also gives your lashes a feathery, soft effect!

 

I hope y’all found this post helpful and if you pick up any of these mascaras and give them a try I would love to know how you liked them so you can DM me on Instagram or tag me in your photo!

LOVE YALL!

Fall Makeup Favorites

Fall is FINALLY here ya’ll! Who else is excited as I am?! Everything about this time of year makes me SO happy. Pumpkin Spice lattes, fall baking, crisp air, colorful leaves, football…and of course we cannot forget about Fall glam!

77F87798-0E50-477A-A59B-22746A414051

Dark lips are my thing, and I am so excited to be able to wear all of my favorite lippies! For Fall, I usually don’t change up my makeup routine too much, typically I just do less shimmer shadow, less shimmer bronzer, basically just tone down the shimmer. I like to stick with more of a matte finish for all of my looks!

 

Here are some Fall makeup looks I’ve done:

0C705E8B-65FC-44DB-A90D-1BA6FAFCD241F05EED88-74EC-407F-A1A5-DCE34998E9C5DAA55033-6E27-4CFA-9BCF-6861D54D8C5A07450C7C-F63A-4CE4-83F6-8023BAF9477BC1B633E2-AC95-420D-8630-96A565743D46

I have listed and linked below all of the makeup products that I used to achieve these looks along with some of my Fall faves! 

Foundation:

Frankie Rose Matte Perfection Foundation

frankie rose

This has been my go-to foundation since my wedding day when I became obsessed with it. It is a matte finish, but not matte where it’s cakey or drying, so if you have oily skin, I still think this would work for you. It lasts all day & is full coverage! I wear the lightest shade in china silk.

 

PRIMER:

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

becca primer

I love this primer year round because it doesn’t make you shimmery. I put this on before my foundation with a damp beauty blender and it gives you a natural glow.

 

BRONZER:

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Chisel Palette

fullsizeoutput_30d1

I absolutely LOVE this palette! These are the bronzers I will be using all Fall long because I love warm tones for Fall and this palette has a variety of different shades for every skin tone.

 

EYESHADOW:

Tarte Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette

TARTE TOASTED 2

This is a palette you need in your life. I love Tarte eyeshadows so much and this is the perfect eyeshadow palette for Fall. I am obsessed with all of these shades and you can create so many different looks with this palette. It has a combination of mattes and shimmer finishes. It is full of warm tones which are beautiful for Fall and they are super pigmented.

 

BLUSH:

Sigma Beauty Blush in Cor-De-Rosa

sigma blush

This is such a stunning blush for Fall. It is a warm, natural shade that would look gorgeous on anyone!

 

LIQUID LIPSTICKS:

I love NYX liquid lipsticks so much, so I will list a few of my Fall faves!

Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks

CORSET

nyx corset

EMBELLISHMENT

nxy embellishment

HONEYMOON

NYX honeymoon

LIPSTICK:

Milani Lipstick in Tuscan Toast

Ultimate Glow Makeup Routine

 

C179949A-AA1A-4A28-873F-D7D7D458DCB3

So, I am aware that we are a few weeks away from Fall, which I am so excited about because it’s my FAVORITE time of the year and I literally look forward to Fall all year long! But, living here in the South, it’s still going to be relatively hot once Fall does arrive, so with that being said, I decided to go ahead and share my makeup routine for dewy, glowing skin with y’all. You can use this products any time of the year to achieve that gorgeous glow we all love.

During the Summer I like to use more dewy foundations, luminous primers, lots of shimmer and a lot of the time I like a bright lip! So, below I am going to share what products I use to achieve a glowing/dewy makeup look.

I will give multiple options per product and include what shade I am using for reference.

IMG_6133

MOISTURIZER:

 CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing lotion

Am moisturizer

It is so important to use an SPF every single day whether it is Summer or Winter. I really love this one by CeraVe. It does have a sunscreen scent so if you’re not into that then this one may not be for you. Their skincare line is super nice, and I have used their moisturizers for a long time. This moisturizer is great for normal-dry-acne prone skin. It is light-weight and non-greasy which I love. It has hyaluronic acid in it & an SPF of 30. I use this right after I wash & tone my face.

PRIMER:

COOLA DAWN PATROL PRIMER

Primer

I absolutely love this face primer. It has an SPF of 30 just like the moisturizer, so you can choose to use one or the other or use both like I do for extra sun protection. What I love about this primer for one is the smell…holy goodness this stuff smells incredible y’all. If they had this scent in a candle or perfume I would have it. This primer actually blurs away your pores, lines & wrinkles, giving your skin a smooth canvas for your makeup application.  So, after I moisturize I take 2 pumps of this primer and smooth it all over my face.

BECCA SHIMMERING SKIN PERFECTOR LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER

10626

I love to use this Becca Cosmetics liquid highlighter after I prime for a natural, all over, glow from within. I love having a glowy complexion all summer long, and you can even use this if you have no makeup on for a radiant glow. I apply a few pumps of this to my damp beauty blender & dab it all over my face just as you would applying foundation. Their are lots of different shades other than the pearl, this is just the one I choose to use because I have fair skin. Also- If you use a matte foundation but still want some glow then mix a few pumps of this with your foundation on the back of your hand!

FOUNDATION:

MAYBELLINE DEWY + SMOOTH FOUNDATION 

Foundation.jpeg

If you’ve followed me for awhile on Instagram then you should know that I love this foundation SO much. It is such an amazing formula for a drugstore foundation. I mix the shades Porcelain and Ivory together to get my perfect match. This foundation blends seamlessly into your skin, and it gives you a medium coverage. It’s non-comedogenic so it will not clog your pores. If you have dry skin and have never tried this, then grab it asap because you’ll be in love. I have normal skin & this stuff is magical to me! It gives you a dewy glow, but nothing too much to where you look greasy. I can’t say enough good things about this foundation, and best part is it’s only $7.99

IT COSMETICS CC CREAM + ILLUMINATION 

It cc cream

If you are looking for a lighter alternative to a foundation then the IT Cosmetics CC + Illumination is a must! I am in the shade FAIR and I tend to use this when we go to the beach or if I am just wanting a more natural look for the day. It has an SPF of 50 which is amazing. (I’m crazy about sunscreen + you’ll grow to learn that lol) This is a full coverage CC cream which I love, so it’s not as heavy as a foundation, but still will cover up what you want.

E058BEED-F0BB-495E-ADDD-0AD0282DA565

CONCEALER:

TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONCEALER

Concealer

My FAVORITE concealer of all time. I am sure you have heard of this before because almost everyone uses it. It truly is the best I have ever used. I suffer from dark circles #insomina and this is the only concealer I have found that completely covers them with one application. I use the shade Fair Neutral. If you have never tried this I highly recommend it. A little goes a long way, so it will last you awhile. It is full coverage to the max! It will cover any imperfections you have from, a zit, to redness, to dark circles. Holy grail product right here. So, I apply this after my foundation. I apply it under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow, my chin and a tiny amount in the center of my forehead.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL + DEFINE CONCEALER

Concealer 2

This concealer is perfect dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. It is only $7 at Ulta, and I have been using this a lot more lately vs the Tarte because it’s way cheaper and does the job! It is full coverage and they have a huge range of colors to choose from so you shouldn’t have trouble finding a perfect match for yourself. I use the shades C1, C2 and C3. I use C2 & C3 first, blend that all in with my beauty blender and then use the lighter shade C1 to highlight under my eyes, bridge of my nose, chin & cupid’s bow.

SETTING POWDER:

TOO FACED BORN THIS WAY ETHEREAL LOOSE SETTING POWDER

too faced powder

This is a cheaper alternative to the Laura Mercier powder that I have been loving recently. You get the same silky, finish which I love. This powder brightens your skin and has hyaluronic acid which will give you a smoother appearance and this will not clog your pores! It is lightweight and doesn’t dry out your skin! I get asked this question literally all the time and it is “Should I be setting my makeup with a setting powder after foundation and concealer”? My answer is always 100% YES. I know there are people who don’t set their foundation and if that works for you and you like the result then that’s perfectly fine. However, setting your face after applying foundation and concealer will make a tremendous difference in terms of how the rest of your powders go on. So, if you haven’t tried it, then I suggest giving it a shot, so you can see how much a difference it makes. I take my damp beauty blender that I use to apply my foundation and concealer and dip it into some powder and set my under eyes with that and my t-zone. Then, I set the rest of my face with a big fluffy brush.

AIRSPUN LOOSE FACE POWDER

AIR POWDER

Alright, so…for the cheapest of cheap setting powder this is the BEST one I have found. It works so well, you can get it at Walmart or Target. I use the translucent shade. It does have a strong scent which I personally don’t mind, but if that is something you don’t like then make sure to check the package before you buy it to make sure you grab an unscented one if they have it!

BROWS:

MAYBELLINE TOTAL TEMPTATION BROW PENCIL

Brows.jpg

I love this brow pencil so much and this is the one I have been using a lot more recently. I think it is a great dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow definer pencil. I use the shade blonde, and I really like this blonde shade because it’s not too ashy, but more light brown, which is what I prefer for my brows. This makes filling in your brows so quick and easy. I also really love the spoolie on the end! Best part is it’s only $7.99.

MASCARA:

TARTE LIGHTS, CAMERA, LASHES MASCARA

Mascara.jpg

This is one of the best selling mascaras around, and if you have never tried it then you need to NOW! This is one of my go-to mascaras because I love the wand. It gives your lashes the best volume & length so much so that you will never want to use anything else. This does not clump whatsoever and does not transfer. Highly recommend my loves.

L’ORÉAL VOLUMINOUS CARBON BLACK MASCARA

Loreal mascara.jpg

The holy grail of all mascara for me. No matter what I l always go back to this mascara or repurchase once I am out. It is that good ya’ll. I have used the original L’Oréal Voluminous mascara and I love that one also, but once I used this I never went back to the original because this one to me is way better because it gives you super black lashes which I LOVE. Best drugstore mascara out there.

BRONZER:

BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER

Hoola.jpeg

This was the first high end bronzer I have ever purchased & it has been one of my favorites ever sense! For my Summer makeup I like to layer bronzer, so I go in first with a matte bronzer & this is usually the one I use because it’s not too warm. It is very buildable and blends well. I love it!

PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER

Butter bronzer

I love to use a shimmer bronzer after my Hoola bronzer to give a little sun kissed glow to my face. I don’t like bronzers that are too glittery but more of a soft glow. Also, it smells like Summer so it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s super buttery & silky which I love. I use the light bronzer shade since I do have fair skin, but they do have 3 other shades to choose from.

HIGHLIGHTER:

PIXI BY PETRA GLOWY DUOS

Highlight

I have recently been LOVING Pixi products! I picked up this highlighter from them a few months ago at Target & holy crap, it is SO good!  It is super pigmented, creamy & melts right into your skin. There are 2 different highlighters & the one I use is the Delicate Dew. I usually mix these 2 together & highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow & my cheek bones!

BLUSH:

STELLAR COSMIC BLUSH IN BEAM

Blush

I personally love a barbie pink blush for the Summer! This one is one of my absolute favorites. This is the shade beam and I think this shade would look gorgeous on any skin tone. It is oil free, fragrance free & cruelty free! This is a luminous blush, so if you like a more matte finish then this might not be for you. It blends out beautifully!

TARTE TARTELETTE 2 IN BLOOM CLAY EYESHADOW PALETTE

EYESHADOW

One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes & I think it is perfect for a Summer makeup look or truly any makeup look because the colors are stunning. There are 12 shades in the palette & I love that you get both matte & shimmer finishes. You get achieve almost any look from this palette so I always recommend this one if you’re looking to invest in a good palette because it’s so versatile. My favorite shades for a summer look are: Flower Child, Funny Girl & Sweetheart.

LIPS:

COVERGIRL EXHIBITIONIST LIPSTICK IN SPELLBOUND

Covergirl lipstick

This one is an oldie, but a goodie and one of my favorite pink lippies ever! This is a creamy finish lipstick infused with shea butter so it keeps your lips super moisturized. They of course have a ton of different colors, but I love a gorgeous pink lip for Summer.

TARTE COLOR SPLASH RAINFOREST OF THE SEA LIPSTICK IN BEACH BABE

Tarte lipstick

This is the perfect beachy, pinky-nude lip. I am in love with this shade because it can go great with almost any makeup look. This is a moisture rich lippie and is super pigmented & long lasting. Highly recommend this shade if you’re looking for that perfect nude.

FLOWER BEAUTY PETAL POUT LIPSTICK IN BRIGHT PEONY

Flower beauty lipstick

Lastly for Summer lip colors is this beyond gorgeous bright, coral shade from Flower Beauty. It is only $8.99 and works so well. If you are looking for a pop of color for your lips then this is the shade to get! I absolutely love it and think its so fun for the Summer time.

SETTING SPRAYS:

TATCHA LUMINOUS DEWY SKIN MIST

Tatcha setting spray

I am sure you have heard about this settiing spray before because it is a very popular product! I LOVE this setting spray so much and it can be used in so many different ways. It is so nice for Summer because it gives you such a gorgeous, dewy finish. Even if you use a matte foundation & all matte powders, just spray this all over your face when you’re done with your makeup and TA-DA, dewy, glowy skin! It can be used under or over your makeup and you will still achieve a luminous glow. To me, this is so worth the splurge.

URBAN DECAY ALL NIGHTER SETTING SPRAY

SETTING URBAN .png

Lastly, the best setting spray out there (to me). I used this setting spray on my wedding day to set my makeup and it did not bulge in our 100 degree heat here in Charleston. This stuff is the real deal! This keeps your makeup in place for up to 16 hours! Definitely a must have for Summer!

MAKEUP BRUSHES: 

SIGMA MOST WANTED BRUSH SET

SIG BRUSH

I can not say enough good things about Sigma makeup brushes ya’ll. These brushes are honestly the best I have ever used. I noticed such a difference when I started using these veres my other makeup brushes. The quality is incredible. They don’t shed, and they blend out your products like a dream. My makeup has never looked more flawless. I think this brush set is a great investment if you’re just trying out Sigma. If you ever try out there brushes, be sure to use my code BLONDEBELLE to save some money at checkout!
