My Beauty Favorites — Week of March 14-20, 2016

Happy Spring! We have had a really warm winter in Kansas City, and of course it is freezing today and snowed last night!

But, I am still looking forward to warmer weather to come.  This week I have been loving products to make my skin glow and prepare my skin for Spring:

PRAI Dark Circle Corrector
PRAI Dark Circle Corrector

PRAI Dark Circle Corrector ($24.95 USD) — Instantly reduces dark circles under and around the eye. Camouflages and reduces the appearance of dark, under eye circles, crow’s feet and puffiness.

What I think:  This has a soft tint to it, to help brighten the under eye area.  I apply it with the application brush and gently blend it in.  I notice that my skin looks brighter and smoother.  I think this works really well under concealer.

Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light
Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light

Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light ($59 USD) — A primer, serum and mixing base all in one, Sunset Light is a fluid filter that helps skin achieve the perfecting & smoothing radiance emanated at sunset. Use it to prime complexion to provide makeup longevity, to instantly diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines, to hydrate, plump, & brighten skin.

What I think:  This is an amazing multi-tasking product!  It brightens and smoothes skin, and it the perfect base for makeup.  It is also really pretty worn alone, if you are not is the mood for wearing makeup.  But makeup does go on so smoothly over this.

KORRES Pomegranate Toner
KORRES Pomegranate Toner

KORRES Pomegranate Toner ($22 USD) — gently exfoliates to remove excess oil and dirt from skin, imparting a tighter, smoother, and more matte finish while helping to reduce redness. Pomegranate extract, rich in tannins and polyphenols, helps tighten pores and rejuvenate the look of skin. Alpine willow herb and witch hazel extract help refine the appearance of pores and provide a matte look to the skin. Formulated with natural skin conditioners, this refreshing toner leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.

What I think:  In the last few years, I have been really loving toners.  This one is not only refreshing, it doesn’t dry out my skin.  It also calms my sensitive skin.  I can use it every day.  It smells amazing, too!

Masque Bar by Look Beauty Brightening Sheet Mask
Masque Bar by Look Beauty Brightening Sheet Mask

Masque Bar by Look Beauty Brightening Sheet Mask ($9.99 for three masks) is a face brightening housed in a facial sheet mask that helps minimize the appearance of dark spots and various pigmentation irregularities for a more even complexion and radiant skin thanks to ingredients like Orange Extract, Licorice Root and Vitamin C.

What I think: This is so easy to use, place on clean skin, smooth it on and leave on for 20-30 minutes.  This mask does have flaps that you can put over your eyes (eyes closed) for help for eyes as well!  It’s nice to lay down, close my eyes and relax — at least for a few minutes!  After I remove the mask and rub in the extra serum, my skin is so glowy!
