Blue and White Stripes

line and dot shorts
Shorts: Line & Dot // Top: Bella Luxx // Shoes: Naturalizer // Bag: Ora Delphine // Sunglasses: Ray Ban

High waisted shorts are for me a must have clothing item. I love wearing clothing hight at my waist and accentuating that area. The blue & white stripe shorts have me wishing I was on a yacht or something but I love how just a simple white top and wedges immediately pulls together this whole look. Simplicity at it's best!

Best Concealers

I am a sucker for concealer. Can't leave the house without it! I have dark circles that I'm always trying to hide so I've tried a lot of concealers in my day and today I'm rounding up some of my favs. Hope you enjoy!

1. Kat Von D Lock it Concealer is a heavy duty, highly pigmented water resistant multitasking concealer. When I need something to be covered and STAY covered like a giant zit this stuff is awesome - it doesn't budge.

2. Ahhh one of my FAVS! The Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser is one of my absolute favorite drug store concealers! If you guys watch my YouTube videos then you KNOW I use this stuff ALL the time. It's addicting and at $5 a tube, can you really go wrong?!

3. Bye Bye Under Eye is great if you need to hide a multitude of flaws. It hides even the darkest of circles and age spots. 

4. bareMinerals Correcting Concealer has more of a creamy consistency if that is something you desire. It has SPF 20 and gives about a medium coverage.

5. For highlighting under the eyes, the chin & down the nose the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch in a shade or two lighter than your skin tone is perfect. 

6. MAC Studio Finish Concealer is great for hard to cover areas. It is water resistant, yet blend able. Use this on not only under eye circles, try it on birthmarks, dark spots and melasma.

7. The MAC Mineralize Concealer is one that I have used for quite some time as well. It is not as heavy as the studio finish concealer but still gives good coverage for everyday use. 

8. YSL Touch Eclat - This magic wand illuminates light and radiance just where you need it. It's not only a concealer, it's a highlighting pen for the face. It can get rid of signs of fatigue as it lights up the eyes and areas of the face with a few simple swipes. Really love this one.

3 New Just Natural Body Products

Hey everyone and Happy Monday You guys know I have been loving Just Natural for quite some time and raving about their products so today I wanted to talk about a few more that I haven't mentioned that I recently had a chance to try.

First off is their Daily Moisturizing Natural Body Wash. This body wash is awesome and as I state time and time again I have overly dry skin so what I'm loving about this one is it does exactly what it states - moisturizes while washing. It envelopes your skin in a creamy rich lather, hydrating and leaving it clean, soft and touchable all over. It is made of an ultra-rich blend of moisturizing Apricot, Coconut and Sweet Almond oils with Vitamin B5 to soften and give skin a radiant glow while Rice Protein and Sea Buckthorn leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and completely refreshed. Convinced yet? How I've been using it is just daily in the shower or bath and for maximum lather, I massage it over my skin with a body puff and rinse well.

Next off is the Body Nutritive Serum. Just a few sprays of this concentrated body serum leaves skin smooth, fresh and youthful-looking all day. This 100% lightweight natural formula absorbs easily to immediately moisturize, soothe, and condition all skin types. It is a custom blend of 13 skin loving ingredients including Avocado, Kukui Nut, and Peach Kernel oils that hydrate and replenish, leaving skin smoother, softer, and supple. Geranium Rose, Pink Grapefruit, Lavender and Helichrysum essential oils provide a gentle soft natural scent that helps to refresh and lift your senses. The way I use it is just to apply the natural body and hand serum as needed after washing when skin is damp.

The last product I'm loving lately is the Natural Shea Body Butter. Again, since my skin is super dry, I love to use a body butter for extra moisture. It is important to make a distinction between this butter and other body butters on the market. Most body butters are made water as the number one ingredient. This butter is made without any water. It is exclusively formulated with butters and plant oils for an ultra-concentrated moisturizer that will wrap you in a total blanket of skin loving hydration to leave skin smooth, healthy, and extremely soft. Vitamin rich natural moisturizers Shea and Mango butters with Borage oil are drawn deep into the skin's surface to repair and nourish to prevent dry skin from coming back. You won’t find mineral oil, petrolatum or silicone in this healthy moisturizer. It is naturally scented with Sweet Orange Blossom (which smells fabulous BTW) with a touch of Lemongrass and Lavender essential oils. Love this stuff!

Make sure to check out the complete line of Just Natural products here. They have SO many natural hair & skin care products you will be just as in love as I am!
