Currently in bed trying to shove a measly champagne gummy bear in my mouth to suck on for 10 minutes before I swallow it ( …insert sex joke here. But really, it’s a lot harder than it sounds. Not to brag but I’m becoming kind of a professional. Especially with pretzel pieces. I casually let them melt in my my mouth & swallow the tiny pieces ). I still have a long way to go recovery-wise. But I won’t bore you with the details tonight.
Before I dive into this makeup heavy post, I just want to say this: some of you guys point out that there are chemicals in my makeup, sunscreen & hair products. Here’s the thing: I use chemicals. In fact, I’ve never claimed I don’t use chemicals. I just TRY to avoid them where I can but sometimes life happens. As I’ve always said, I balance my products/food/drinks like a check book.
For instance I LOVE MAC makeup but I don’t love carrageenan in my almond milk. I love DryBar’s dry shampoo but I won’t touch chemical filler in my orange juice. I’m obsessed with Flaming Hot Cheetos, but I use raw coconut oil to take my makeup off & moisturizer my skin.
Hey, I pick my battles.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is there are products on The Skinny Confidential that have chemicals & are non-organic. I’m certainly not perfect. My advice is to pick and choose what you can & can’t compromise on ( LIKE I CAN’T STOP EATING CHEEZ-ITS BUT THEY’RE FULL OF GMOS BUT I DON’T CARE ). I gotta live. BALANCE is key.
Just wanted you guys to know that I most certainly do not live a completely chemical-free life. As GLAM, Gwyneth Paltrow-ish as that sounds, it’s not realistic for me.
OK SO, ON THAT NOTE, let’s talk about BAGS. Not handbags. UNDER EYE BAGS.
I’m assuming no one in the world likes under eye bags so today I’m sharing a couple of tips to cover them up.
Had a late night? Hungover as hell? Tired from a hot date night?
I got ya covered, see?
The day I filmed this, I actually had under eye circles. I was up until 3 am editing video & this was shot at 9 am. So I was F-ing tired…with saddle bags under my eyes.
Ok enough of that, let’s talk product details.
Rose hip oil
MAC Moisturizer ( for dewey finish )
MAC brush #217
Finishing spray ( << OBSESSED, takes away any powder-y look )
Alright, I’m off to try to eat my second gummy bear…1 hour later.
