Today’s photo is an ode to my favorites... @lilahbeauty, @becomealover, & @mycaudalie! 🖤✨ I’m wearing Envie Desoir today, the most beautiful Orris perfume I’ve ever come across. Powdery yet tangy and extremely soft. Such an elegant scent, and perfect for days like today. Yesterday’s post was so long, and I’m extremely tired so I thought I’d keep things short & sweet this afternoon. ☺️
. We’ve had clouds or rain for 50+ days and it’s a bit deflating. So I’m rebelling with an old outtake from better, sunnier days. Come back, ☀️! Nothing is the same without you.
. How are you spending this foggy Wednesday, friends? Are you hibernating like myself or out there braving the cold?

new toner on the block / #Laneigegiftedme their fresh calming toner, and I’m so excited to add another hydrating layer to my skincare routine! this toner is infused with pure deep sea water to hydrate skin and lychee peel extract to soothe skin by delivering polyphenols and antioxidants 💫 as the weather gets colder and my skin gets drier, a hydrating toner is essential to my skincare routine to restore my skin and soothe any irritation. I’ve been using this toner morning and night for the past couple nights and have been loving it so far - and it’s also great for sensitive skin! if you’re searching for a hydrating and soothing toner, look no further than @laneige_us 💧✨ #hydratewithlaneige#OctolyFamily

Photoshop- a topic that’s been on my mind forever. ••I was mindlessly scrolling through IG earlier when I saw an ad for how to get “dewy glowy perfect skin” cool. Cool? No. The ad featured a gal that was very, VERY obviously photoshopped and facetuned. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
••My issue isn’t photoshop or facetune, let me say I have NOTHING against them or anyone who choses to use them- you do you and what makes you happy- some of my absolute favorite makeup bloggers/ friends use facetune and there is nothing wrong with that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
••My issue is when photoshop is used for skincare marketing, as in, “buy these products and this is the kind of face you’ll get” because it’s not real. It’s false advertising. It gives false hope and it can be incredibly disheartening when you’re on your skincare journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
••More than anything I hate (because I’ve been there) how it makes you feel looking at these promotions when you’re trying so hard for nice skin. I used to idolize models with perfect skin and “hope that someday I would get there” Ugh. Poor 17 y/o me. “There” does not exist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
••This is why I have my ‘Real Skin’ highlight and why I post before/afters with edits, it’s why I never use photoshop on my face or facetune, and it’s why I post picture of my breakouts. It is SO important to me. I want people to know that 1. YES, it is possible to have nice skin! And “nice skin” is SO much more than airbrushed “perfection” it’s healthy skin, moisturized skin, exfoliated skin, nourished skin, etc. 2. Your skin, my skin, all skin, is not 100% perfect 100% of the time. 3. You should never feel bad or a failure for having a pimple or breakout <- sounds kinda funny to me now, but I’ve been there- ditching plans and staying home because I was ashamed of how I looked, crying in the bathroom after thoroughly picking my skin to death (bc at least then I didn’t have *pimples*🥴), borderline depressed because I felt that no matter what I did I was just, ugly? It can be a vicious cycle but acne doesn’t make you ugly. All I hope for is that by showing real skin it can help someone the way I wish somebody could have helped me when I needed it most.

Pink hues on a Wednesday 💕 I’m posting this pic because I’d planned to and what’s in it makes me happy. Which is exactly the opposite of how I feel right now.
😫I hate whining. I also hate confrontation. But tonight unfortunately I had to do both. And I walked out of a hair salon with my hair still half wet and upset that this is the third (3rd!!!!) time the stylist has messed my hair up. No, I won’t be going back 😑
In September my hair color was exactly what I wanted. Pinky/purpley perfection. Loved it.
😡I went back in October (asked for the same - it was great) and after almost 4 hours I left with dull, greyish darker hair (how can that be after another lot of half head foils 🤔).
🙄I went back November to have them re-tone it to achieve the Sept colour. Walked out with a nice blow dry. And basically no shade change.
🤬Sat in the salon tonight for another three hours (a full head foils plus apparently the original toner to achieve the pink/purple) and my hair is patchy blonde/orange/pink and looks shit.
👹And then be told that I didn’t explain what I wanted. Umm, love... when I show you a photo of how you did my hair in September and say that’s how I want it back- I don’t know how much clearer you want me to be🤯
If you got this far, thanks for listening. Sometimes you just need to let it out😘
Our Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner has a fresh new look. " I have oily dehydrated skin and need a lot of hydration but like to avoid oils. This toner immediately makes your skin feel plump, smooth, and bouncy." We agree, Sally from California. Shop via link in bio.
Manuka Honey. It’s been my go to cleanser in the mornings. Manuka naturally has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s also very moisturising. So it’s perfect for my dry acne prone skin. I like to put a ten cent piece amount of product on a dry face and massage it in. I read about this “honey rolling” technique on the Mahalo skin care website. (I would really recommend reading about this. It’s just below her description of the petal mask.) I also like to combine warm water and manuka honey into some of May Lindstrom’s the clean dirt! It makes it a little more nourishing. Manuka honey is fairly inexpensive compared to a conventional cleanser and it works so well on me, so I would really recommend trying some out!
Girl I love your Glow!! Beautiful before and afters of the pro facial in action. I took my magic wand 🧚🏼♀ and helped clear areas of congestion using the acid mix solution and suction, then hydrated while using the other heads of the machine to push the products deep down further into the skin. We finished this beautiful treatment with @alumiermd tinted SPF in sand to give her the most natural glow and protection. The tiny microspheres of colour burst on the skin to blend seamlessly. It really is a little miracle worker. So basically you use the pro then you GGGGlow! 😂🌟 Any info or for bookings drop me a line 💁🏼♀ Have yourself a Tremendous Thursday everyone!!!
my salvation! I love @cerave products! 😍 without this cream I would be lost! this cream alleviates dryness and helps restore the protective skin barrier, with 3 essentials Ceramides and hyaluronic acid. it's very good hands cream

Ladies Bridge Club Face. Okay, I felt like a full face of makeup today so why not?
1) #niod Copper Isolate Serum 2:1 - just opened and trying it out for the first time today. After adding the activator, the liquid turns a beautiful blue color. I put 4-5 drops in my palm and press it all over my face. I take another 2-3 drops and press it directly into my trouble spots - under eye, laugh lines, brow furrows. If you start seeing this regularly in my posts it’s because this is a daily use product. This new version is completely stable so no need for refrigeration like the old version. 2) Whamisa Green Tea Hydrating Toner - normally this is what I use immediately after cleansing but after speaking to a Deciem expert they recommended either using this after the Copper Isolate Serum or skipping it totally. I love how it makes my skin feel so I will keep using it unless I feel the Copper Isolate is not working as it should. 3) Marula Oil on my dry spots - forehead, below my cheeks. 4) Time for makeup. Ardency Inn Custom Coverage Concentrate pure pigment as a concealer - bye bye redness and dark circles 5) Pacifica Alight BB Cream where I want a tiny bit of blurring coverage, again my redness and dark circles 6) Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint to blend away all my layers and even out my skintone 7) Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting powder - a light touch under eyes and everywhere else I used concealer, then another pass all over my face .
8) #violetvoss Taupe Notch Palette laying down in order Bestest, Top Notch, MVP to smoke, line with Extra, dot of Elite in the corners, blend blend blend 9) Mua Makeup Academy Pixel Perfect Multi Blush in Peach Bloom, Anastasia Brow Wiz and Tinted Brow Gel 10) RevolutionPro Lip Primer and Lipstick Queen in Nothing But The Truth ♥️
