Soft Summer Beauty

We are at the height of summer and many of us have acquired a bit of a soft summer bronze glow!

So, what basics do we need in our beauty routine to enhance this newfound complexion radiance? Find out in this week’s post that is all about my favorite summer basics!

This bronzed and polished look captures that “barely there” beach beauty glow that we all crave this time of year!

1. Blend our treatment CC Cream onto complexion using clean fingertips and watch the color beads magically transform themselves into your unique skin tone! This makes skin look naturally flawless, while treating it at the same time!

2. Fill in brows using the Brow Shape & Shade palette, then comb them through using the applicator provided. Next, dust the lightest brown in the palette onto the eye lid, then dip the angled applicator (provided with the palette) into the darkest shade and line upper and lower lash line softly. Blend the taupe hue into the crease of the eye for a little more definition and blend well. Lastly, use the lightest hue in the palette to softly highlight the brow bone.

3. Blend the bronze side of the Double Duty Bronzer onto complexion using our soft and fluffy kabuki brush. Brush bronzer onto cheekbones, jawline, forehead, and anywhere else the sun would naturally kiss your skin. Dip brush into the peach side of the compact and buff into the apples of the cheeks for a subtle pop of color and cheek sculpting effect.

4. Now curl lashes and apply our Lash Kapow Mascara! Start at the root of the lashes and zig zag the brush upward and outward, lifting and coating each and every lash as you apply. This mascara is super waterproof, so it is perfect for a day on the beach or for that fun pool party where you might just jump in!

5. Now apply the Stain Stay to clean, exfoliated lips. Start by outlining the lips following your natural lip line and then fill in the rest of the lip. This lip stain has an 8 hour stay and is eat, drink, kiss & swim proof – so it will not smudge or budge until you take it off!


Our CC cream is an ultra-nourishing lotion that creates a naked finish on the skin while brightening, perfecting and evening out the skintone. It is packed with color beads that burst upon contact with skin and then adjust hue according to your unique pH – so the white lotion magically changes color and looks different on everyone! It’s got added  vitamins, flower extracts and other treatment aspects to keep your skin glowing all the way into fall!
