Soothing Makeup Finishing Spray

Today I’m sharing something I’ve been loving lately—a Soothing Makeup Finishing Spray. You certainly don’t have to use it over makeup (it’s also a great soothing & hydrating mist for bare skin!), but I’ve been using this as the last step in my makeup routine (and sometimes throughout the day if it’s extra dry or hot!) and I love how it works. This spray leaves my skin dewy and eliminates that powdery, “hey, that’s makeup on your face” look that can sometimes happen. It’s mostly water, aloe vera juice, and hydrosol, but this mist also has a great supporting cast of moisturizing and soothing ingredients. Let’s dive in!

Liquid Blurring Skin Tint

If you’re questing for a sorta-foundation that offers some skin-perfecting goodness without a whole lot of coverage, this Liquid Blurring Skin Tint is for you! It lightly blurs imperfections and gently evens out skin tone, pairing beautifully with a bit of concealer for any areas that need a bit more coverage or colour correction. It applies easily with fingers or a damp sponge, leaving the skin looking like its best self. It’s also really easy to make, and you can easily customize it!

Second Skin Cream Foundation

This Second Skin Cream Foundation was borne of some very early morning I-can’t-sleep-any-more YouTube makeup tutorial watching. Being the sucker I am for all things Kate Winslet I clicked on a thumbnail for a tutorial titled “Trying to do my makeup like the movies… so you can’t see it” from RawBeautyKristi (the thumbnail featured a shot of Kate in The Holiday). I then proceeded to watch, mesmerized, at 5:30 am, as Kristi expertly transformed her face into seemingly makeup-free perfection. The product in the video that really caught my attention was the foundation she used—a cream product from RCMA. As Kristi worked her expertise application magic, exclaiming over how the product was ultra skin-like, I knew I needed to know more. To the Google!

Rosé Cream Blush

Today we’re continuing our Rosé DIY series with a lovely Rosé Cream Blush. Instead of working with a rosé wine inspired scent blend, this creamy pot of colour takes its inspiration from the cheery pink colour of rosé. It’ll lend a similar pinky, summery flush to your cheeks and lips, along with a hint of shimmer. I’m in love with this little pot of happy colour and find I’m reaching for it daily to add a summery pop to my look ❤️

Cream Luminizer

Today’s DIY is inspired by a product sold by a well-known natural cosmetic brand. A simple base of beeswax, castor oil, and coconut oil is heavily laced with a blend of shimmery micas to create a creamy highlighter that’s brilliant for illuminating cheekbones, brow bones, and anything else that could use a bit of eye-catching shimmer. It gives a subtle, buildable shimmer that’s beautiful as part of a full makeup look or as a stand-alone bit of brightness, and you can customize the colour to be perfect for your skin tone—or to have an entire arsenal of highlighters!

Silky Cream Foundation

I’m really excited to share this recipe with you guys—it’s a formula that’s been heavily requested, and I’ve been working on it and testing it for months now. This is a beautiful solid cream foundation that you can put in a compact or a stick for easy application. It glides on like a dream, blends beautifully, and offers both coverage and optical skin perfecting for all-around general awesomeness. It is more involved than the liquid foundation in my book, but I think the results are totally worth it.
