Estée Lauder Foundation Infused with Serum
My make-up and skin care routine has been taken to an even more awesome level, thanks to Estée Lauder. I’ve been using Estée Lauder Perfectionist Foundation. It’s amazing because it has skin care serum infused right into it! It has SPF in it too, which is also great for skin care protection. However, the main highlight of this foundation is how it combines make-up and skin care repair in one.
I’ve been enjoying Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair serum as a part of my Estée Lauder nighttime routine, so it’s so cool I can enjoy the pampering effects of Estée Lauder skin care serum in my foundation during the day. It’s like having a skin care treatment round the clock, just wonderful...
Beauty Plus Pampering with Estée Lauder
Estée Lauder Perfectionist Foundation leaves my skin looking very natural because it is such a perfect match for my skin tone. Estée Lauder does a great job providing an extensive range of natural-looking shades so it’s easy to find a perfect match for your skin.
When I apply just a tad bit of Estée Lauder Perfectionist, I barely look like I’m wearing make-up. It just looks like my skin has a healthy, radiant glow. If I want to amp it up, I just apply a bit more, build up the foundation, and I can get more glam! I’ve been enjoying applying Perfectionist with a foundation brush. It gives me great control. I just pump a small amount, or more if desired, onto the foundation brush and smooth easily onto my skin. I can use the foundation brush as a great blending tool, to either reduce the amount of foundation in certain areas of my face for a more natural look, or to blend in more for a more “made-up” look.
Estée Lauder for Radiant, Healthy Skin
It’s been so wonderful to tie in all of the amazing skin care benefits of Estée Lauder’s products, into every aspect of my daily and nightly skin care/make-up routines. Check out my other blog post, where I share how I’ve been pampering my skin at night with a fabulous array of Estée Lauder’s nighttime repair products. I’ve recently tied in another fantastic skin care product by Estée Lauder that works amazingly with my Perfectionist Foundation.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm works perfectly in the evening, to assist me with gently removing my Perfectionist Foundation while soothing my skin. It has a pleasant, light scent and super rich texture that melts like butter! It feels so good on my skin, like I’m coating it with a thick, rich protective layer of skin care repair and treatment. It melts my Perfectionist Foundation right off and leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturized.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm is also a decadent treat on make-up free skin. It feels like a special pamper treatment that immediately provides intense hydration and a boost of skin care repair. It's perfect if you feel your skin is in need of moisture or a nice deep skin care treatment. Not only is it fabulous for thoroughly removing make-up; it’s also great for maintaining skin hydration and a beautiful, radiant texture.

Hair Care Beauty Fave
I’ve been enjoying some really awesome beauty faves that have been making a difference in my hair, skin and make-up routines. I’m so happy I discovered an amazing hair mask beauty fave that is exactly the type of product I like to have for my particular hair care needs. I’m always open to trying products that will help add moisture to my hair and this hair mask by Marc Anthony goes over and beyond!
It was amazing what an immediate difference Marc Anthony’s argan oil deep hydrating treatment made on my hair, even after just one use. It really did impart intense hydration and moisture into my hair. I would highly recommend this beauty fave if you want a hair care product that will give you an immediate result you can see and feel.
It was perfect because I could feel my hair had been deeply quenched by the argan oil but it had no oily residue in it. It still had movement and a light feel to it. It didn’t feel weighed down by any sort of greasy aftereffects. This mask is awesome for those times you want to gain some control over your hair, make it more manageable, nourished with a healthier look and feel. It’s great for when you want to see an immediate difference; and even more wonderful for adding health, shine and a more beautiful look to your hair over time. The natural ingredients like argan oil, grape seed oil and keratin; do a great job conditioning, strengthening, protecting and restoring your hair to a healthier state. It even has vitamin e and bamboo shoot extract. How cool!
Check out this hair care beauty fave here, as well as some of Marc’s other fantastic argan oil products:
Beauty Fave for Healthy Skin
Another awesome beauty fave of mine also has natural ingredients. The Organic Pharmacy’s rose cleansing gel is such a treat to use! When I first felt it on my skin I was amazed because I felt like I was cleansing my face with rose petals. As soon as I applied it, I felt such a soft, smooth sensation and that delightful scent of rose petals. This beauty fave is a definite must-have if you want to feel like you’re truly pampering your skin and using something super delicate.
The mixture of the organic ingredients and gentle cleansing are ideal for healthy, soft, radiant skin. It also has healthy ingredients like shea butter, grapefruit seed extract, aloe, barley extract, sunflower seed oil, geranium oil and bilberry fruit extract.
Add this beautifully scented rose cleansing gel to your skin care routine and check out some of The Organic Pharmacy’s other amazing natural products here:
Beauty Faves, Make-up & Nails
I had a lot of fun creating a dramatic look with some of my beauty faves for make-up and nails. NYX has some cool illuminators if you want to add an extra glow to your skin. They’re great for brightening up your cheekbones, brow bones, nose, chin, cupid’s bow, collarbones….wherever you want to add a bit of dramatic highlight. The liquid illuminators are easy to apply and you only need a small amount for generous coverage. You can even add a bit to your legs and shoulders for a sun-kissed glow. In my picture I’m wearing this beauty fave in the Sunbeam shade.
I added more drama to my look with a cool eye shadow shade from theBalm. Meet Matt(e) Trimony is a great matte shade that can be worn naturally or built up for more intense color. The whole theme of theBalm eyeshadows is really cute and creative. The texture of the matte shadows is soft, smooth and applies easily. You can also use it wet to increase the intensity.
For a finishing touch, I added a fun beauty fave to my nails. LVX nail lacquers add a unique colorful accent to your look. I’m wearing a pretty blue shade in the color Serene. These nail lacquers have great pigment and a rich, thick consistency so you only have to apply one coat.
Have fun enjoying a creative look with some of my awesome beauty fave products. Pamper yourself, add some glow and pretty color with these make-up and nail treats:
My Awesome Ipsy Items
My Ipsy glam bag arrived and it’s rockin! Just love the products I received and had so much fun trying them out. The brands and items included in my glam bag were really cool, high-quality in generous amounts.
I started my experience of my Ipsy products by relaxing and cleansing my face with the Rodial Stem Cell Cleansing Cream. It feels so rich, creamy and soothing. It can also be used as a mask. Just leave it on your skin for 15 minutes. My skin has felt so moisturized and hydrated after using it, that it kind of feels like I’ve also applied a moisturizer. That’s how hydrating it is. Ipsy definitely did a good job providing me an awesome skin care product based on my preferences. That’s the great thing about Ipsy. You just tell them what types of products you’d like to receive, and they tailor your bags just for you.
Just let Ipsy know a little about yourself (e.g. skin tone, hair color, hair type, skin type), and they’ll send you products based on what you would like for your skin and hair. You can also let them know what type of make-up looks you'd like to receive and how adventurous you are with make-up. I decided to get super adventurous and let them know I’m open to pretty much any type of make-up they’d like to send me. This has been such a fun experience and I’m really looking forward to receiving more cool, fun bags!
Each month Ipsy sends us a unique cool make-up bag we can store all of our goodies in.
Pampering My Hair & Skin with Ipsy
I really love how pampered I’m feeling enjoying my Ipsy products. My glam bag also had a luxurious hair mask by the renowned Celebrity Hair Stylist, Peter Lamas. It’s so cool getting to try all of these exceptionally high-quality products. Ipsy did such a great job sending me a hair care product that fit my preferences to a tee! I can’t wait to receive more awesome, high-end products to pamper my skin and hair. You can really feel and even smell the caliber of these products. They all have such a good-quality, fresh scent. So relaxing and enjoyable to use everything!
I enjoyed Peter’s 5 Oil Hair Treatment Mask during a relaxing shower and saw an amazing difference in my hair afterward. It felt so nourished, moisturized, smooth, silky, and of course smelled fabulous! I find it so helpful that Ipsy is leading me down the right path, and introducing me to products to help improve the health of my hair and skin. Such a great resource!
Beautiful Make-up From Ipsy
Right now while I’m writing this blog post, when you click on my link it mentions something to the effect of, “Thank Paula for not being on the Wait List”. Sometimes there’s a Wait List so get in on these bags as soon as possible. I’m not sure if you will have the opportunity to receive the same exact products I did, since each bag is individually tailored to your preferences. If you’d like to purchase these products individually, just check them out via this blog post, and bear in mind they're becoming increasingly popular so some may be sold out. I’ve included an array of products here so you can still have access to some of them.
Be A Bombshell
Natural Look Make-up
As you guys know, I usually like to rock a natural look. It’s pretty easy to create a look that makes you feel “put together” while still maintaining your natural appearance. This natural look is great for daytime activities like a fun outdoor date, catching a bite to eat with a friend or just running around town getting things done. Sometimes you feel like heading out with no make-up at all but this look comes pretty close to a no make-up look, while at the same time, giving you that extra bit of a polished appearance. To start off my look, I applied a simple, light pressed powder to my face. I used Cover Girl Tru Blend Pressed Powder in Translucent Honey #3
I like it because it provides great coverage and works similarly to a foundation. I feel it’s perfect on its own. If you want to add some foundation or concealer underneath, that’s fine but there really is no need. It covers smoothly, evenly and fully but does not look heavy. It still manages to maintain a natural look It creates a nice matte, smooth look. The accompanying sponge works wonderfully. You can add a facial moisturizer of your choice underneath, for a bit of a glow peering through, underneath the powder.
Accentuating your cheek bones with a blush stick is so convenient. You just dab it on with the stick, where you’d like that hint of color, and simply blend with a make-up sponge or your fingers.
I gave my lips a sweet natural look and glossy shine with Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal in Pink Quartz #140 This lip balm smells delicious and it gives your lips a beautiful color as well. They feel moisturized and nourished; but you also get the benefit of a sparkling shine and a generous amount of long-lasting color.
Natural Look for Nails
To create a natural look for my nails, I first created a protective base coat with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, a great nail hardener that protects my nails from discoloration that might occur if I applied my nail color directly to my nails. Next I added a subtle, natural color to my nails, to pull together my overall natural look with
My Natural Look Hair
To finish off my natural look, I just rocked my usual fun natural hair. I really love using Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine shampoo, conditioner and leave-in conditioner The shampoo is nice and gentle so it doesn’t strip my hair of moisture, just leaves it feeling soft with the proper moisture balance. The conditioner is awesome because I don’t have to use too much, a little goes a long way because it’s jam packed with moisturizing ingredients. It helps to soften, smooth and detangle my hair while I comb it in the shower. Plus the products smell delicious!
When I hop out of the shower, I replenish my hair further with an added layer of protective ingredients in the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-in Conditioning Cream It ensures my hair is even softer, more manageable and easier to detangle with my brush. I pop it into a ponytail and let it dry by air to keep it orderly.
Try creating a similar natural look for yourself. I’m sure you’ll have fun and will find some of my tips helpful for creating your own unique look. In addition, the tank top I’m wearing is by Karen Scott Check her out. She makes quality, durable clothing at reasonable prices.
