Why I Use Gluten-Free Makeup!

 

*(Disclosure: this blog contains affiliate links. This means that I get commission from any link you click on…but of course it’s at no cost to you!)

Just one more reason for me to love Maskcara Beauty products is the fact that the makeup is gluten free!

Even though I don’t necessarily “break-out” like some people do when eating gluten, I realized that it is important to use ONLY gluten-free makeup products on my face. The reason why I feel this way is because I do have celiacs disease and I am quite sensitive so why expose myself to anything with gluten….especially something such as makeup.

I was so grateful to find Maskcara Beauty products and was even more excited to find out that the products were gluten-free. (Click here, to read about Maskcara makeup being gluten-free) before and afters

This makeup is simple, easy and fun to use!

Let me know if you have any further questions about this wonderful makeup line!

 

Until next time,

Some of My Top Favorite Tips for your Inner AND Outer Beauty…

Pixx #22:

First I have to start by saying why are we so incredibly hard on ourselves? It doesn’t matter how beautiful we are…there is ALWAYS something wrong with us. For example…I have never liked my “full cheeks.” When I look in the mirror that’s the first thing I see and I don’t love them. As a wife and mother I am continually trying to work on that “inner beauty” side. Meaning I want to feel good about who I am on the inside so that it shines through on the outside. We all know that’s how it works, but we live in a “comparison” world. Social media and our society are constantly telling us how we should look. And yet, what we forget…is that our own true BEAUTY is the fact that we are all different. If we all looked the same what a boring world that would be right?

I will say, I am a true girl and I love makeup and all the fun accessories that come with being a girl. However, I realize that makeup is an “enhancer,” and it doesn’t define who we are as a person. True beauty is that person that told me I had “pretty eyes” on the same day that I broke up with someone in college and was feeling pretty low. True beauty was that person who offered to take my shopping cart back when they could see that I was struggling to wrangle my two cute toddlers and was full on “stressed-out.” True beauty, is that friend that is your constant confidant no matter what day you are having or how you look.

You see, beauty is within all of us. In my mind, beauty comes through service, and acts of kindness and love. It even comes with a smile. It’s so easy and simple to smile at someone, you just never know how much that person may need that.

So don’t think I don’t love Beauty Tips and Tricks because I do, and I have some for you. Just know, that I am constantly working on my “true beauty.”  I know that I love who I am more, when I am focused on how to improve myself and the world around me. Beauty

With that, here are FIVE little tips and tricks to helping that true beauty shine on through to the outside. 

#1: Enhancement Lashboost by Rodan + Fields: So this Lashboost is obviously to lengthen your eyelashes. I personally was so curious, because I heard nothing but wonderful things about it…and I am telling you it works! I even got my mom to try some because she wanted to lengthen her eyelashes and it has worked wonders for her as well. What’s neat is that you can see results literally within the first week or so of applying it. It’s easy, you apply the Lashboost to your eyelashes every night and you get to watch them grow. You do have to keep on this regime or I am sorry to say, your lash growth will stop. But if you are looking for an effective way to enhance your eyelashes I can personally attest that this product works! If you are interested or have any questions about the product, click here.

#2: Go Easy on the eye-liner: Long ago, I was in pageant competitions. Now when you are on stage, your makeup is more intense than your everyday look. And yet, something that I learned from the professional makeup artists at the pageants was to never line both your upper and lower lid COMPLETELY with eyeliner. Why? Because it actually makes your eyes look smaller. So what I do is either just the top lid, or I go half way on the lower lid…to keep my eyes looking open and big. See the difference:

#3: Add bronzer on top of your cheek bones and on your forehead and blend well. It will give you a natural glow that you will love. My favorite bronzer is Bella Bronzer from Maskcara Beauty. If you are interested in this product its a creamy bronzer and lasts a long time. Click here for more info.

#4: Reverse Lightening By Rodan + Fields for melasma discoloration or “mask of pregnancy” spots. My friend gave me a sample of this and it’s something I really enjoy. Rodan+Fields was started by 2 doctors based out of San Francisco who created skincare products to help their patients. I have been very impressed with all the results I have seen with their products. AND I have teamed up with a Rodan+Fields consultant and she is willing to give you $20 cash back for preferred customers! Just mention in your email that you read this blog and you will get $20 cash back when purchasing products. Just click here to purchase products and e mail Kristi.godfrey@yahoo.com to get your cash back after purchasing products. What a great deal!

#5 Beauty Blenders do wonders to make your face look smooth and flawless. I will tell you I didn’t start using a beauty blender until the past year and goodness it’s a game changer. I use the Maskcara Beauty perfector sponge and I absolutely love it. It costs about $13 for this particular tool but I feel like it’s been worth every penny. The important part to note, get it damp before using it. If you use the beauty blender dry it will rub your makeup off. If you dampen the beauty blender it will blend your makeup and foundation beautifully. No more cakey-looking foundation spots, the beauty blender is amazing!

*Remember—You don’t have to look “On-point” 24/7, that’s just not sensible or reasonable. I mean if you have an entourage of hair and beauty experts like many Hollywood stars do that’s one thing..but most of us don’t have that, and that’s great. I would say find a small thing everyday that you love about yourself. You don’t need to feel conceded or cocky…just know it’s important to truly love who you are inside out and that is where TRUE beauty will find you!

Pick #14 (Appropriate for Valentines February 14th)

When it comes to skin care, this product is one of my favorite picks. I was introduced to Moonvine Organics about 7 years ago and I have been ordering items from them ever since.

Screen Shot 2019-02-11 at 9.35.28 PM

Moonvine Organics has amazing lotions and skin care products. This company uses natural and organic ingredients to create not only wonderful fragrances , but very effective products as well.

The products that I have used the most from Moonvine Organics include the healing heat (Muscle rub), sugar scrub and lotion.

The Healing Heat is a must have. It is only $8 and it works wonders! The healing heat is a muscle rub that can help relieve pain and sore muscles.I actually shared this healing heat with my mom because she has achy knees…and she swears by it now. I enjoy this muscle rub better than icy hot, and the fragrance is great too.

The sugar scrub is another favorite of mine. I love how my skin feels after– and I absolutely love how wonderful they smell! My favorite fragrance is Winterberry, but you can’t go wrong with any scent. This sugar scrub lasted me surprisingly longer than I expected, I had it for quite a few months.  My feet are exceptionally dry and the sugar scrub helped to exfoliate my dry skin and make my feet feel smooth and healthy again.

And last but not least, Moonvine Organics sells some wonderful lotions. I have used all the fragrances except for “baby bloom” and actually want to try this one next. I read a review on the Moonvine Organics page that a woman used “Baby bloom” lotion for her young infant and her baby’s eczema cleared right up. Whenever I get a new baby in my home I will make sure and stock up on the baby bloom lotion because my little ones always have sensitive skin.

Another thing I have really liked about the Moonvine lotions is that they aren’t over oily, but they make your skin feel silky and smooth. Knowing that they are all natural and organic products is another plus!  Moonvine products are not only natural and organic, but they are also vegan, gluten-free, and Kosher. How many lotions can say that right?!

Another product that I have coming in my mail this week is the dreamy, creamy Whipped Body Butter. I live in a very dry state, so besides it being winter time, my hands are very dry at this point and I am hoping this body butter can get my cracked hands smooth and feeling silky and soft again. I am sure I will follow up on this particular skincare line, because as I mentioned…it’s a favorite!

If you are in Utah, Moonvine Organics has products in the following stores:

*Herbs For Health in West Jordan

*Herbs For Health in Ogden

*The Utah Coop in Murray

*And every spring through fall at Kuwahara Wholesale Farmers Market in Sandy

And of course if you’re out of state you can order online: Moonvine Organics

Moonvine Organics is not only a great, all-natural skin-care line, but they are affordable and easy to work with. I have had questions about the products in the past and the company was quick to get back to me, and even sent me some samples.

So if you are looking for a great gift, or just want to take care of your own skin…I would highly recommend using Moonvine Organics for all your skincare needs:)
