I watched a couple of quick makeup tutorials, this one from Gucci Westman and another from Cayli Cavaco Reck from Knockout Beauty (which is not up right now, but be on the lookout for hers, they’re good), and realized that if I upgrade my makeup game just a little bit (which usually comprises of tinted moisturizer, a hint of bronzer, and mascara–at night some eye pencil and a shadow) that I might be happy with the results. Plus I want to keep a bit of the summer glow glowing for the next couple of months. Apparently layering is key and after watching those two videos I purchased a bunch of Westman Atelier products including the Beauty Butter Powder Bronzer in Coup de Soleil, the Super Loaded Tinted Highlight in Peau de Rose, the Lit Up Highlight Stick in Brulee, along with two brushes (I don’t own any?) the powder and the blender, AND….the Squeaky Clean Lip Oil in Nana (a nude). It is by far the most I’ve spent on makeup in decades, but I realized I really had fallen behind. I have yet to receive the Peau de Rose Highlight or the brushes, but I am in love with the other products (especially the lip oil, which I was very skeptical about). I do think the older you get, the less makeup you should wear (too much really ages you), however, strategically-blended, natural-looking, glowing-giving products are better than I would have imagined. Sometimes I’m a slow adopter. You can also shop all the products here at Knockout Beauty.
