ECO TAN: Face Tan Water


ECO TAN REVIEW by Lauren Day 

Eco Tan Face Water Summer Beauty Must Have! 

This summer I have replaced my regular facial toner with Eco Tan's new Face Tan Water

I apply it every evening after I cleanse my face and before I apply my moisturiser. This Face Tan Water adds a tan and radiance to my skin and best of all the formula is anti-acne so it doesn't clog my pores. It also has anti ageing properties so it's perfect for mature skin. 

Features and Benefits: 

  • Anti-aging and anti-acne formulation
  • Builds with application to deliver a gorgeous and unbelievable sun kissed glow
  • Evens complexion and brightens skintone 
  • For best results leave on for 8 hours 
  • Vitamin C promotes the appearance of younger looking skin
  • Revolutionary formulation contains no artificial colourants or orange dyes 
  • Made with natural and organic ingredients 
  • 100% vegan friendly
Face Tan Water 100ml 
RRP $29.95 


Directions: 

  1. Apply to clean, dry skin after cleansing 
  2. Apply to the face, neck and décolletage using fingers or a cotton pad
  3. Allow to dry
  4. Apply moisturiser if desired, however it is not necessary as Face Tan Water contains hydrating properties.

Because I wear medium / full coverage foundation everyday my skin doesn't tan natural because my foundation has built in SPF. So Eco Tan's Face Tan Water is a great addition to my faux tanning routine! Most self tanning lotions are too thick for the face and can cause breakouts if you have combination to oily skin, like I do. So ditch your usual fake tan for Eco Tan's Face Tan Water! I highly recommend it!

Goddess Glow: My Tanning Routine

laurendaymakeup


Get the Goddess Glow

 NAKED TAN REVIEW by Lauren Day 



To achieve a goddess glow I use Naked Tan products. They are cruelty-free and best of all the products are made in Australia. I love the delicious vanilla and coconut scent. Because I have a very high risk of skin cancer I prefer to use a safe, natural sunless tan rather than getting a tan from the sun. I try to limit my sun exposure between 10 am and 3pm every day. 



My Step by Step Tanning Routine 


1. Apply Naked Tan Goddess Crème de la Crème to my hands, elbows, knees and ankles. 

2. I shake the bottle well and then apply 3 pumps of Goddess Bronzing Mousse into the palm of my hand. I then apply the mouse to my body, and keep re-pumping mousse into my hand when I need more. 

3. I rinse my hands well and then apply Goddess Self Tan to my face, neck and the backs of my hands. 

4. I wash my hands thoroughly to remove excess tan. Then I turn on my Stefan hairdryer and switched on the cool shot.  I use it to dry my skin for approximately 2 minutes, to avoid that after tan "sticky feeling". 

5. After application I relax for 2 hours while my #NakedTan to develops into a gorgeous bronze colour. Then I rinse off the tan in the shower and pat dry my skin with a soft bath towel. (If desired leave on overnight for a deeper colour). 


As Naked Tan is a true 2 hour tan they recommend leaving the Goddess Bronzing Mousse on for just 2 hours (do not exceed 4 hours).

Benefits of Naked Tan: 
  • True 2 Hour Tan (tan develops in just 2 hours!) 
  • Cruelty-Free formula
  • Australian made and owned 
  • Sunless tanning (no nasty sunburn!) 
  • Vanilla & Coconut Scent 
  • Recyclable product packaging 

Important! 
When in the sun, be sure to still apply Sunscreen... because Naked Tan does not contain sunscreen!

FOUNDATION REVIEW: glō minerals


Luxe Liquid Foundation 

glō minerals REVIEW by Lauren Day 

Finding the perfect foundation for your complexion can be a challenge! Am I right ladies? Especially if you're a Makeup Artist like myself. You've probably tried a lot of different brands. It's all about the consistency, coverage and colour. 

In 2015 my absolute favourite luxury foundation is the new Luxe Liquid Foundation by glō minerals. I highly recommend this beautiful velvety soft foundation as it contains broad spectrum SPF 15 and anti-ageing properties. It's excellent for mature women in their 30's, 40's and 50's. 



Application directions: 

  1. Shake well before each use. 
  2. Using a foundation brush or your fingers, apply Luxe Foundation to the face, blending lightly down the neck. 

www.glo-minerals.com

I have naturally fair skin. My shade is Naturelle. The glass bottle is 30ml. (1 fl. oz.) This foundation's pump is convenient and easy to apply. I prefer applying foundation with a makeup sponge for full coverage. If you prefer using a brush to apply foundation, try glō minerals Ultra Brush

When I go makeup shopping, either online or at my local chemist or department store, I always look for good quality foundation. I believe it's definitely one of the key steps to achieving a flawless finish. Luxe Liquid Foundation is very luxurious and long lasting. The 

glō minerals recommends! 

  • Apply foundation liberally 15  minutes before sun exposure
  • Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating
  • Reapply at least every 2 hours


"glō minerals provides coverage that lasts while being kind to the skin."  



I simply adore glō minerals Camouflage Under - Eye Concealer. My shade is beige. For best results, apply with a synthetic or cruelty-free brush. It's excellent for concealing dark circles under the eyes prior to applying glō minerals Luxe Liquid Foundation.
