Summer Makeup Look and BIG Giveaway!


First of all this is going to be a longer post than usual as I have a lot of amazing things to share.  My end of summer makeup look, Mineral Fusion beauty tour and a Mineral Fusion makeup giveaway!  But first things first...

- WHY MINERAL FUSION - 

Now let me tell you about a makeup line that I have just started using and is now one of my new favorite makeup lines!  As most of you know I went to all natural beauty products 2 years ago.  Some have been a hit or miss, but Mineral Fusion is spot on!  It's even sold at your local Whole Foods Market which is awesome to be able to try on products before you buy!  Some natural makeup lines you have to order online, which can be difficult to find the perfect match.  Mineral Fusion carries skin care to hair care, to nail polish and makeup, Mineral Fusion has something for every eco-friendly shopper!  Plus a
ll of the products within the Mineral Fusion portfolio are safe for all skin types, eco-friendly and free of gluten, parabens, SLS, phthalates, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances, 100% Vegetarian, and most are 100% Vegan.

- MY HOW TO SUMMER MAKEUP LOOK WITH MINERAL FUSION -

We all blinked and summer is nearing an end - why yes, yes it is!  For some you may dread the colder months coming - but for me it's a 'warm' welcome.  BUT I will miss the natural sun kissed glow.  However, we can fake some of it!

What better way to end the season with a few summer beauty tips to help you soak in that last of that shimmery bronzed look.  I'm pretty natural when it comes to my makeup choices, so you will see that this look is rather easy and just enhances what one already has!




First prep your skin with your favorite face lotion or cream to have that nice dewy skin ready for makeup application.  Once your face lotion has dried, brush the Mineral Fusion Bronzer across your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline, then brush the Mineral Fusion Blush on the apples of your cheeks and along the cheekbones to provide a little contour.

{all items shown are included in the giveaway - colors may be selected by winner}

Now to enhance your eyes, I used the Mineral Fusion Eyeshadow Trio in Rose Gold for a warmer look.   These shades are rich in pigmentation (long-lasting!) and blend-able.  I find that not all natural beauty products are easy to blend.  

Add a touch of the smooth velvety Mineral Fusion Eye Pencil in Rough and the Mineral Fusion Lash Curling Mineral Mascara in gravity.  The brush has a curve which helps to natural curl your lashes so you can ditch the eye-lash curler!



Finally, to give your lips a pop of color swip with the Mineral Fusion Lipstick in the color Nude (which I would say is pretty close to my natural lip coloer but better!) or for a little richer in color the Mineral Fusion Lipstick Butter in the color Ripe.  The lipstick butter for summer and winter to condition dry lips is just amazing!  Very hydrating with the added cocoa butter in the formula to keep them nice and soft.


I would say that this makeup look is the most like your natural self.  Your healthy, summer glowing, natural self.  These are some of the perfect products to use that will make you glow like you have just been kissed by summer!
