MakeSense Foundations: Smart Shades for Every Skin Tone

Let’s talk for a minute about the different levels of coverage that you can achieve with the SeneGence MakeSense foundations. A common misconception that I’m hearing a lot recently, is that all of the foundations and color correcting tinted moisturizers are waterproof and that is not exactly accurate. Don’t get me wrong, they are all LONG LASTING, but that doesn’t equate to all of them being waterproof.

Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer

Enjoy sheer coverage, color correction benefits and skin protection in one easy step. With natural mint color blended in, it counteracts redness, signs of skin damage and blemishes. It protects with a mechanical shield and anti-aging ingredients, including SenePlex® Complex and fights free radicals with a formula ideal for acne-prone skin including,
 Arnica flower, a natural anti-inflammatory.

MakeSense Original Foundation
This is the true waterproof foundation! This long-lasting, oil-free liquid foundation can be used on any and all skin types and provides a mechanical shield equivalent to an SPF of 30 when applied after SeneDerm Daytime Moisturizer. Each shade can be used on a multitude of skin tones and adapts to your skin pigmentation. It’s actually quite remarkable, it can adjust by 2 shades darker or lighter than your skin color, so you don’t have to worry when selecting shades. I wear both Dewy and Beige Chiffon (just for reference). If you would like to watch my dorky, yet powerful testament to how waterproof it truly is, you can view here.

MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation
This powerful, creamy foundation is water-resistant and full of protective ingredients that help prevent damage to your skin and shields it from environmental hazards. These foundations are blended with moisturizers, minerals and vitamins containing long-lasting color pigments that adjust to a wide range of skin tones, just like its predecessor. Like all anti-aging foundations, one of the main benefits is that it moisturizers your skin cells to keep them young and supple so if you’re prone to oily skin, this is not going to be the foundation for you. If you have combination skin, and tend to veer more on the dry side, this is a great option for you.

I use all 3 depending on the coverage needed that day. If I am going to the pool, or just out in the Oklahoma heat during the summer, 99.9% of the time I am wearing my original MakeSense foundation because I need it to stay in place and not budge! During a majority of the year however, I prefer to wear the Advanced Anti-Aging because in my mid-thirties I’m much more cognizant of my skincare needs and preventing and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. I also have combination skin, so I’m not bothered by extra moisturizer! On days that I literally have 3-5 minutes to get ready and don’t want to look like an extra on the Walking Dead, I wear my Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer (“CCTM”). With all 3, I always wear the MakeSense Pearlizer or EyeLuminator (which is eye cream mixed with Pearlizer) because it creates an instant luminous and radiant glow. Just dabbing a touch under your tired eyes, makes a world of difference.

I’m an idiot savant when it comes to helping select shades (rather it be with foundation or lip colors) so please let me know if I can help pick one out for you, because I would love to!

Morphe Brushes -Monthly Subscription Box!





MorpheMe June Collection

OMG – I can barely contain my excitement (insert the jazz hand, excited emoji)!! I literally just now discovered LiveGlam and more importantly, their monthly Morphe Brush Subscription! Which ships out in 11 hours – so once I get my first box, I’ll let y’all know what I think!

Here are some deets: For $19.99 a month, with free shipping for US residents, each month you’ll get anywhere from 3-7 new Morphe brushes. Never the same brush twice. You can skip months, or cancel at any time. I’m a hoarder and product junkie, so my manta is that you can never have too much of anything, but I do think that at some point Adam would strongly suggest that I hold off…so I will prob skip (with serious FOMO) several months.

Here is a sneak peak of the 3 brushes I’ll be getting and how this professional makeup artist uses them. I’m just sure I’ll become a pro a no time! Totally joking, because if you didn’t see my Facebook Live video on the EBC page, go check it out for a good laugh, #hotmessexpress!

Also worth mentioning, they have a monthly Lipstick (you know I won’t be trying this, because duh, #LipSense4Life) and Nail Polish boxes too (I just might)!

Enjoy! And drop a line to let me know if you decide to join too and what you think of it! As soon as I get mine, y’all will be the first to hear about it!

Instant Smokey Eye – Beauty Hack





If you know me well, then you know that before my husband and I got married I warned him that there were two things that I would forever splurge on without regret: jeans and beauty/skincare products. I bet he regrets that now (bwahahaha). But seriously, all kidding aside I wish I had thrown in a designer bag/shoe clause.

One of my favorite makeup artists Claudio Riaz, has this amazing set of “Instant Look” brushes. They are worth every penny. You will find naysayers online, but I’m betting that they didn’t have this splurging convo with their spouse beforehand. Regardless, I adore the “Instant Smoke Eye” brush, but I will agree that the price is a little steep at $95. Which can be purchased from Barney’s here. But, watch this quick (20ish second) demo: 

I digress, but I was looking for more cost-effective brushes to try to mimic this one, (which I am still going to purchase and try some of these others out) but I had an “ah-ha” moment when I was getting ready for bed. My favorite nighttime skin routine product is the Collagen Night Pak (deets below); which just so happens to include an application brush that is pretty similar to Instant Smoke Eye! Bingo-Bango-Bongo!Download-3

So I tried it out and, boom! Works just as well. I am not going to lie and tell you that I liked it more than the original, but the included SeneGence application brush is a higher quality than the other alternative options I was looking at, and as an added bonus, it comes with the best skincare product that has ever graced my vanity (yes I previously used La Mer, amongst others…and this is my favorite EVENING product, hands-down)! So for $85, you can get both this kickass product and a brush to provide an instant smokey eye. So allow me to bore you with my attempt at a tutorial. I had my daughter home with me for half the week, so I had some time on my hands…or eyes. I also might or might not be enjoying a cocktail as well speak.

I currently have 5 in stock and ready to ship ($85+ Shipping) shoot me an email here to claim yours! Also, I still have some of these adorable canvas makeup bags (your choice) as a free gift with purchase!

p.s. this might come as a complete shocker, but this is actually my favorite SeneGence product…over LipSense! #nojoke #thankmelater

LipSense Giveaway: 3 Uses for LipSense




Because I have awesome blog followers who aren’t following me on Facebook  or Instagram I wanted to share my fun LipSense Giveaway! And my newest discovery with the Espresso LipSense from the limited-edition Tuscany collection.

Well today I ran out of contacts and was forced to wear my glasses, so I needed something to really make my brows stand out and I am running low on my go-to ShadowSense in Bronze Shimmer, so I decided to give the Espresso LipSense a shot. And I LOVE it! Used it as my eyeliner, too and the 1st layer on my lips! Topped with a mystery color. If you can guess correctly what I used for the next 2 layers, you win a free color (your choice of the 2)! If there is a tie I’ll draw! Although, I don’t know if I’ll want to part with my Espresso, since I’m loving it for my eyes! ShadowSense is one of our more versatile products, but it’s pretty awesome that I can use my lip color that lasts up to 18+ hours on my eyes too.

Here are two color charts to help you out! I think you’ll be surprised which color is used to create this combination. Post your guesses in the comments below! I’ll choose a winner here, and on my social pages.

Best Colors & Makeup for Your Season





As a studio art minor (PR & Marketing major) and painter in my spare time, which is pretty non-existent with two toddlers, I’m all about color theory and finding what colors compliment your season and tone. Once you determine which of the four seasons you associate with, you can fill your closet and makeup drawer with products that make your features pop.

In order to determine your season, you first need to identify if you’re warm or cool. You can read a little more about that process in this previous blog entry, here. But the easiest way to quickly determine is to hold a piece of gold and silver jewelry to your face and you will instantly see whether warm (gold) or cool (silver) looks best. When you wear the correct tone, your best features pop.

Now, the fun part is to determine what season you are. Warms are either Springs or Autumns, and cools are either Summers or Winters. To determine which season, you simply must decide if your natural hair color is light or deep. Pretty foolproof; for instance, if your hair is blonde, light brown or strawberry blonde/light red you are a light. If your hair is brunette, dark red or black you are deep. I think that it is fate that I am an Autumn since that is my very favorite season, ever.

  • Cool and Deep – Winter
  • Cool and Light – Summer
  • Warm and Deep – Autumn
  • Warm and Light – Spring

The main dimension to get right with your make-up is the undertone; whether you need warm or cool colors because if you are wearing the wrong undertone you may look tired, unwell and less than your beautiful self. This is because you’re putting colors on your face that don’t resonate with, or complement your natural coloring; they fight against your coloring.

Below are some guides for each season and the corresponding shades of LipSense, ShadowSense and BlushSense that will look the best with your coloring to really accentuate your natural beauty!

SeneGence Makeup Routine: UPDATED




Still learning the in-and-outs of my Mac so this is most certainly not a great video by any means, but I have spent more time than I would like to admit on this, that I’m just going to throw this out into the interwebs regardless. So allow me to introduce to you to, “Part One” of my SeneGence Makeup Routine. The products used for my #basemakeup are: MakeSense Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer (Medium); MakeSense Original Foundation (Beige Chiffon); MakeSense Foundation (Pearlizer); and the most versatile product (IMO) that SeneGence offers, ShadowSense, which can be used as a concealer, highlighter, brow definer/filler, eyeshadow and eyeliner.

Stay tuned for “Part Two” which will include a finalized eye look (mascara) and LipSense. Don’t know how I managed to delete that part of my routine, but I did. I know, I’m sure you’re just dying and waiting on the edge of your seats for this (please pick up on the sarcasm here) but I’ll post the rest of my “tutorial” another day. Can’t make any promises that the video quality will be better, but I can guarantee more sarcasm will be headed your way.

UPDATE: Still not super tech-savvy, but here is my newest video of the full routine 😉

12 Essential Beauty Products for Traveling




IMG_9654

Whoop, whoop! SeneGence recently had 3 out of the “12 Essential Beauty Products Every Woman Needs While Traveling” featured in the Huffington Post. You can read the full article here.

EyeLuminatorFirst up on the roster is our EyeLuminator, which provides your tired eyes with an instant revitalized look. This gem of a product retails at $55 and will last MONTHS. The EyeLuminator is an anti-aging and highlighting creme features a rich blend of SenePlex Complex, natural jojoba, avocado and sweet almond oils and vitamins A & E for protection to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and nourish the sensitive area around the eyes. According to the articles’ author, Miranda Allfrey, “I recommend it because it works like a charm on my droopy eyes. It is a staple in my purse for a quick revitalization. Secretly, you could get away with a swipe of the Luminator under each eye, mascara, and a great moisturizer if your makeup bag was inaccessible”. Side Note: I personally adore this product because it is versatile! Not only does it serve as my eye cream, I also use this to highlight my brows and create my own brow-kit (paired with our BrowSense) and as an eyeshadow base to create a soft and beautiful, yet moisturizing glisten for alluring eyes. 

Climate ControlThe next featured product is the Climate Control. This is truly a miracle in a bottle, as it can serve many purposes of accelerated healing and cellular repair. Climate Control is hydration in the purest form. Made of the smallest molecular weight, this moisturizing spritz delivers pure SenePlex Complex, natural oils and beneficial ingredients for cellular repair to the skin at the deepest level. I recently due to a curling iron catastrophe, suffered borderline 3rd degree burns, and I attribute my quick healing to Climate Control. (And yes, I will post before and after pictures in another entry.) Climate Control also works wonders on my daughter’s eczema, and many swear by it for providing soothing relief to sunburns. Allfrey states that ” I use it after every flight. It nourishes my face and makes me feel alive and ready to greet whoever is waiting at my destination”. This retails for $60 and it too lasts months and is worth every penny!

Of course an absolute essential for traveling is obviously LipSense, as the color will remain intact and on-point well after you have reached your destination. Of course I could go on and on about how wonderful this product is, but I’ll let you hear it from an unbiased third partyLipSense-Starter Kit, “I’ve tried various types and colors, and I’ve found a favorite that does not kiss off or come off mid-flight. An all natural product that lasts all day and night for that matter is the perfect pairing for a conference, long flight, or all-day tour. Whatever the occasion, you’ll find a color to match. My favorite three? Bombshell, Plumeria, and Sand Gloss. I use a makeup concierge who picked my lip colors for a recent photo. She matches my skin tone and highlighted hair color I am sporting in that moment to send me the perfect color”. Side Note: I LOVE color matching, so if you’re looking for a color suggestion, I would love to help you out. Shoot me an email with your pic, or a hand swipe of your fave shade and I will find the perfect color (or colors) to compliment you or replace that fave shade with a long-lasting one. If you are new to LipSense, you will want to purchase a LipSense Collection, which retails for $55 and includes a color of your choice, the Glossy gloss and an Oops!Remover. If you already have the gloss, you can keep on adding to your collection! There are many glosses that you can experiment with as well to change up your look. I promise if you try this you will become hooked. If not, then have I mentioned that there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee? Well there is! So it’s a win-win for you my friends!

And I’m sure I have shared this video with before, but the proof is in the pudding (that’s a saying, right?) here is why I’m obsessed with this amazeballs product!

 

Mother’s Day Gift Guide





According to research released by Google , flowers are no longer the go-to gift for moms. Millennial moms are looking forward to a chance to rest, while moms ages 35 and up would love a meal with their family. Now, I know what my hubby is going to be getting me because I have dropped many subtle hints about needing a staycation sans my two rugrats sDownload-21o I can catch up on some R&R (Rest and RHOBH). I can’t promise that everyone will get the much needed rest they deserve, but I can promise some gifts that will help you fake it tell you make it! Up first on my must-have-list of gifts for mom is the MakeSense Pearlizer. This amazeballs product will help you create a gorgeous, dewey look making you appear radiant and well-rested (no one will ever be able to tell you got at best 4 hours of zzz’s).

ed “Botox in a Box” because in under 2 minutes you can see it instantly lift and removInstantly Agelesse puffy under-eye bags. It also smooths deep forehead wrinkles. Although, this is just a temporary effect (it lasts 4-8 hours after applying) it is still nothing short of amazing. It’s a little pricier at $75 (1 box of 50 sachets) but mom will definitely thank you for this tool to add to her beauty arsenal. Also, it’s a great gift for new moms who are basically operating on fumes. You can purchase here.

Of course a LipSense collection is always a great gift because who doesn’t love long-lastiParsian Duo.jpgng lip color?

My newish favorite mascara is Moodstruck 3D Mascara from Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 4.32.05 PM
Younique. I don’t sell this, but I purchase mine from here. It’s like painting on false lashes, amazing! It’s not waterproof, but it is pretty long-lasting. For $29 it’s a great buy!

 

If you are in the OKC metro area and you haven’t been to Radian, I highly suggest booking mom (or yourself) a relaxing facial or even better a spa-day. Check out their website and list of services here. This is the most posh and state-of-the-art medical spa in Oklahoma. The staff is incredible and their building is absolutely gorgeous, totally Pin-worty decor.

Beauty Secrets from The Dash Sisters’ Makeup Artist





I love when Elle shares great makeup tips from artists who are behind-the-scenes and responsible for creating looks to covet. Whether you like them or not (which I happen to love them) the Kardashian sisters have taken over Instagram with their beautiful faces and  Elle has shared their secret for these glamorous selfies, his name is Ariel Tejada. Read the full story on Elle.com, here.

He shares his top 9 tips for achieving “the perfect glow, impeccable skin, and, of course, bombshell lips”. Obviously this is right up my alley with SeneGence and LipSense. Here are his tips and my suggestions for achieving this with our incredible (let me reiterate this again, long-lasting) products that truly are nothing short of amazing.

  1. Illuminate Everything: “I love a good glow. Recently, that’s what I’ve been addicted to: making the skin look really fresh and glowy, yet still glam.” His tip is to use a liquid or cream highlighDownload-21ter on top of foundation but prior to finishing with powder. He suggested putting it on the high point of the cheeks, bridge of the nose and right at the center of the chin; blend, set and then apply powder. Ladies, let me introduce to your new BFF, MakeSense Pearlizer. It creates the perfect dewy glow. I was hesitant about using it at first because I didn’t want to appear oily. I’m so happy that I decided to give it a shot, because I now can’t live without it. I wear it daily and it is th
    e only thing that keeps this tired momma looking alive and not like I should be cast on the Walking Dead. The Pearlizer can be used with any foundation, it doesn’t have to be used with our other MakeSense foundations (but they are amazing as well). You can purchase this must-have-tool for your beauty arsenal, here.

Eyeshadow can reshape your eyes: His signature eye look is achieved by using  natural, bronze-y, warm-brown eyeshadows. To make more of an almond shape darken the outer part of your eyes, and for a rounded doe-eyed look using a dark shade around your eye shape to round it ShadowSenseout. My top pick and go-to tools to achieve this look are the ShadowSense creme to powder eyeshadows from SeneGence. They are $22 each and versatile. I use mine to highlight my brows and as my eyeliner. They last all day af
ter they have set to powder and are water-proof and smudge-proof. Which is essential in the summer here is OK with 3 digit temps! My colors of choice are: Sandstone Pearl as the highlighter, Moca Java for the lid, and Smoked Topaz for accent and blending. I use Smoked Topaz for a day liner on days I’m trying to achieve a natural look, but I love to use Black Onyx as my eyeliner. It creates the perfect dramatic eye.

Here are the steps I take with these beautiful shades. Using Black Onyx as my eyeliner. This is such a popular color that it is currently on backorder, but will be coming back in stock soon!

3. Bombshell Lips: Tejada’s advice is to purchase a gloss because it livens up your look. He’s clearly a fan of Kylie’s line, which is sold out. But have no fear, we have played around with our color combos to come up with the perfect dupes for her shades. Here are some options that I have come up with utilizing our long-lasting colors.

IMG_7532

Kylie is known for the matte lip, so I topped all these combos with our matte gloss, but I’m with Tejada, I like a glossy look so I go for the Glossy Gloss most days. Purchase the colors here and the glosses, here.
