Getting beautified with Beauty Pie
First and foremost, I apologize for my absence on the blog the last few days - between juggling photoshoots at work to attending weddings and freelancing, my "free" time is pretty much non-existent. However, this week I'm staying motivated and inspired and I'm so excited to share some new content with you all!
Nothing compliments a creative refresh better than a bit of a life refresh and this included doing a bit of spring cleaning with items in my closet and beauty products. Out with the old and in with the new has never been more applicable in my life! Trying new beauty products has been one of my favorite pastimes as of late to determine what products work best with my skin, daily regimen and overall lifestyle and aesthetic. Enter: Beauty Pie. Beauty Pie is a luxury beauty brand full of an array of products suited for all of your needs and go-to makeup looks. Beauty Pie is cost effective and a must for all my fellow beauty junkies out there! Beauty Pie also offers a monthly or yearly membership should you be inclined to receive/purchase product on a regular basis. I highly recommend the membership option for makeup artists, bloggers and those that travel frequently!
I received an assortment from Beauty Pie and took the time to test out various products within their makeup and skincare line and so far, I'm incredibly pleased with the results! Here's a breakdown of the Beauty Pie products I use to get beautified on a weekly basis and why they have become some of my favorite essentials! Also, can we all just swoon over this sleek package design!?
LIPSTICKS: A girl can never have too many and that's a fact. Beauty Pie offers a wide range of lipstick color options and finishes (matte, satin and more of a glossy/shine). I prefer matte when it comes to my lipstick and have found these lipsticks to be long lasting and the color goes on evenly and come in extremely flattering hues.
MASCARA: A must in my beauty bag. I love a mascara that volumizes in just a few simple strokes and this Beauty Pie mascara does just that! I put on two coats for each eye for my weekday makeup if I want to have a little extra volume and pop and three to four on each eye for weekends when I'm going for a more dramatic look.
Foundation: I've been stuck in a bit of a foundation rut the last year since I have such sensitive skin and am often afraid to venture off and try new things but I decided to give this Beauty Pie foundation a try and I'm loving how lightweight this foundation feels when applied to my skin. The color is a perfect match for my skin and the bottle is the perfect size for transport. Also, this foundation is great for those with sensitive skin since it does not consist of the parabens and fragrance that more often than not irritate the skin.
Powder: I use a large makeup brush to apply this powder to blend makeup and leave me with a little bit of a natural glow. I love brushing this powder on my face before an event because it really helps to keep my makeup in place and gives me a nice highlight to last throughout the day.
Bronzer + Highlighter: My favorite summer makeup pieces that keep me looking sunkissed. Both products leave my skin with a healthy looking glow when applied (especially this highlighter! Remember, a little goes a long way!)
Lip Liner: I was never a huge fan of lip liner because truthfully, I don't think I understood the perks of using it! Now, I can't get enough on days where I really want to accent my lips or lipstick color. I apply a little on the top corners of my mouth and lightly line the bottom and shade in my corresponding lipstick to blend the liner and lipstick together creating a more defined lip effect!
Liquid Luminizer: And lastly, liquid luminizer! It wasn't until Beauty Pie that I was informed first hand of the perks of incorporating a luminizer in my makeup routine! If you wish to give your skin a little more of a boost over layering on the highlighter, use a luminizer instead! You can apply it as you would a highlighter to the cheekbones, brows and sides of the eyes OR you can blend it with your foundation. It will leave your skin glowing and looking fresh all day long.
