WARNING: I’ve backlogged a few fabulous beauty products over the last month that I’ve been itching to share. This post features the first of many new goodies that’ll be headed your way! 😉
So fun story (not really lol), a few weeks ago I was out shopping for a lightweight foundation or BB cream for Summer, I’m not a big fan of foundation this time of year. I’m not sure why, but it always looks extra cake-y…especially if my face catches a little tan. I was unable to find anything that caught my eye, and I really don’t think BB cream is a thing anymore (seriously, who still makes BB cream?! I couldn’t find any!) I went home defeated. But the next day, a lovely little box from First Aid Beauty arrived at my doorstep. Inside was exactly what I was in search of…but even better.
Preen.Me sent a couple shades of First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to try. I hadn’t used a tinted moisturizer in years and I didn’t think to look for one!
This product is perfect. It’s lightweight, creamy formula offers light/medium, (but even) coverage. It blends right into your skin and when used in conjunction with a concealer for stubborn spots, setting powder and a little bronzer…you’ll find yourself with a dang near flawless complexion.
I’ve been using the Profusion Cosmetics Highlight & Contour book as well as their Day Face palette to create a simple, summery, everyday look!
I love using the Shade Contour to (obviously) contour, but to bronze as well! I apply Impulse and/or Heartfelt to my cheekbones, down my nose, on my cupids bow, and to the inner corner of my eye. With the Day Face palette, I’m able to create a soft, warm, neutral brown eye look. The palette comes complete with both shimmer and matte shadows for you to work with as well as a bronzer, a highlight, and two brow powders. Again, these products are very affordable, definitely not the most well packaged, but they work. I really enjoy their line and use one of their products everyday; I’ve been adoring this particular look! 🙂
I haven’t been ready for a YouTube return just yet, (hopefully soon), but I shared a quick video tutorial on Instagram last night. Check it out here:

Forget foundation… I’m #TeamTintedMoisturizer these days. 🙋🏻♀️ . I have some serious catching up to do. 🙈 I’ve tried so many new products over the last 5-6 weeks & it’s time to start sharing them! First up: this @firstaidbeauty tinted moisturizer & these @profusion palettes which have been on repeat to create this easy, everyday Summer look. More details about them (and a giveaway!) will be on the blog tomorrow.😁 . ALL PRODUCTS USED: – @firstaidbeauty Tinted Moisturizer “Medium” (c/o @preendotme) – @julepbeauty Cushion Complexion “Alabaster” – @nyxcosmetics HD Finishing Powder – @profusion Contour & Highlight palette – @profusion Day Face Eyeshadow Palette – @maybelline The Falsies “Blackest Black” – @milanicosmetics Lip Liner “Nude” – @rimmellondonus Lasting Finish Lipstick “Rossetto” – @nyxcosmetics Butter Gloss “Vanilla Cream Pie”
These products are all going to be in rotation this Summer, the tinted moisturizer especially. If you’re in the market for something similar, I’d highly suggest you browse their shade selection and try it out for yourself. As for the Profusion products, that brand has been so good to me and they always hook me up with their latest and greatest! They sent me two additional palettes (the two I shared above) which I’m going to be giving away on Instagram!
