Check out Mally’s Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo!

mally-effortless-airbrush

Mally Roncal, Celebrity Makeup Artist and President / Founder of Mally Beauty has your looks for this summer! She’s shared three tips with Make Her Up, and I thought I’d pass them along! I was sent the Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo in order to review for this post*.

Here are three looks to try out that are fun, bright and right on season:

Bright Pink Lips: Because pink is so bright, you want to make sure that you prevent the color from moving around on your lips. On dry lips, use a lipstick first and follow with the liner after to get precision. Try Mally Beauty Bright Lip Kit in Frisky Fuchsia. You can add a gloss for extra shine.

Sparkly, Bronzy, Smokey Eye: Simply line the whole eye area using a Shadow Stick and then blend with your fingertips. Try Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply a gold shade in the crease of the eye and bottom lash to soften the look. Complete the look by applying at least three coats of mascara – try Waterproof during the summer months. Try Mally Beauty Waterproof Volumizing Mascara.

Bronzed Skin: Use a bronzer that is one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it where the sunlight will naturally hit your face, like behind the ears, along the jawline, across the top of the forehead, of the nose, cheeks, and tip of the chin. Try Mally Beauty Believable Bronzer. Finish off the look by adding more light to the face with a highlighting powder. But, only apply it to your cheekbones. Try Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo.

This is a gorgeous color, isn’t it! It’s such a beautiful shimmery/summery shade. I love that they provide the brush to go with! A+!

New from Pixi: Check out Pixi’s Gel Blush and Endless Silky Eye Pen!

I’m kind of really starting to dig Pixi Beauty. I was sent a couple new products to give a try*, and I did just that!

First I tried the Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel. I really liked this product, and I not only used it on my cheeks, but also on my lips! It is just the right amount of pink without looking completely fake and doll like. It’s just enough oomph you need to give yourself a little glow! Just use the tip of your finger and apply a dab for a completely adorable look!

I know what you’re thinking…. Sticky. Apply a small amount – and you’re good. Apply a glob – and it’s gonna get sticky!

What it is formulated to do:

This sheer, translucent gel creates a super natural flush of colour – the key to a youthful face. Applies easily with fingers for a fresh & healthy burst of colour on cheeks and lips. Keeps cheeks looking fresh and healthy all day long without the need for any touch ups. Oil free, fragrance free and hypoallergenic. Hydrating, moisturizing and skin-conditioning.

Beneficial ingredients and what they do:

  • Aloe vera soothes and heals stressed skin
  • Sodium PCA, a vegetable-derived humectant, binds moisture to skin

Next is Pixi’s Endless Silky Eye Pen! I tried Copper Glow (which looks more like a purple than a copper to me, but whatevs). I love this eyeliner. Maybe it’s just my eyes, who knows, but I don’t know how anyone uses non-waterproof eyeliner. It goes on – and stays put! Not gonna lie – you have to use some good makeup remover to get this stuff off, but it comes off!

It goes on so smooth – like a gel eyeliner – and looks gorgeous. I paired this with a gold shadow – and the combination of the two was gorgeous! You’ll love it too!

Waterproof, super-long-wear, no-smudge, no-budge eye liners. They glide on like seamless silk, and in a single sweep motion create a flawless, solid jewel-toned line. No retouching required all day – or night! Gentle on eyes, yet intensely coloured and super-silky. Waterproof. Paraben-free. Mineral oil-free. Preservative-free. Hypoallergenic.

Beneficial ingredients and what they do:

  • Vitamin E nourishes and protects delicate skin around the eye

NOTE: Use our Dual Pencil Sharpener to keep your Endless Silky Eye Pens sharpened and ready to beautify at all times – it also works with our Lid Last Shadow Pens.

I’m sure it’s not exactly what Jurlique is going for, but their new Intense Rosewater Balancing Mist Deluxe Edition makes me feel like I’m living in Downton Abbey. Not sure if I would be one of the rich folk – or a maid – but still. This beautiful rosewater mist is something of dreams. I don’t know, maybe it’s just something of my dreams!

I know what you’re thinking….. ROSEWATER….it can be so overpowering, can’t it? I don’t know how Jurlique does it, but this water is simply divine. Let me think of another adjective. Sensual? Clean? I just love it. It’s not too much, it’s not too little. It’s just right. And the bottle is so beautiful, I want to display it on a book shelf or something! Elle even named it one of their essential beauty products!

Introducing Angelica Exfoliating Gel from L’Occitane!

Is too much time in the summer sun leaving behind a rough, dull complexion? Revitalize lackluster skin with exfoliators from L’Occitane. I’m LOVING the Angelica Exfoliating Gel. What I love most about it – is it exfoliates your skin – and when it’s over your skin feels revitalized, not dry and stinging! I find that so many scrubs leave my skin thirsty for moisturizer. I think this is the perfect balance. It exfoliates your skin, cleans out your pores, and leaves your skin feeling quite fabulous when it’s over!

These three scrubs are sure to make your features glow:

Angelica Exfoliating Gel ($30): With its pearly glow and fresh scent the all-natural exfoliating particles gently remove dead skin cells and impurities, while massaging the face. Angelica extracts preserve natural hydration, for skin that is incredibly clean, soft, and smooth.

Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Scrub ($34): Specially formulated to gently exfoliate dry skin. Its creamy base, enriched in shea butter and chestnut extract, helps the skin to maintain its natural moisture level. Skin is left perfectly clear, smooth and soft.

Immortelle Brightening Instant Exfoliator ($36): This brightening product will leave your face even-toned and luminous while protecting against impurities for an anti-aging bonus.
