How To Build A Concealer Wardrobe

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogAs someone who has immersed themselves in the world of beauty, I feel like I am able to predict many trends before they become mainstream. One I really didn’t expect, however, was that concealer would suddenly be so sexy. Why has this happened? It’s all about contouring and cooking. I can’t think of anyone not curious about these techniques, and how they can magically transform your appearance. While I’m not big on contouring, I’ve owned multiple concealers for different purposes over the years.  Allow me to introduce you to some new ones!

These Amazing Cosmetics Perfection Sticks are great to use as a one-stop-shop.  For those with a wardrobe of concealers, the pencil shape makes it easy to apply to tough spots, like the creases of the nose and chin.  These are also super for highlighting the upper cheekbone with a lighter color, or contouring with a deeper shade. If you’re looking to buy just one concealer, this formula is versatile enough to use just about anywhere. Retail price is $23.

When it comes to concealing under the eyes, I always use a product with a bit of an orange hue, like this Becca Under Eye Corrector from Ulta Beauty.  This shade cancels the blueness that makes you look tired and old.  It’s instantly eye opening! Retail price is $29.

Aveeno Daily Challenge!

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogI’m not one to shy away from a challenge, in particular when it might actually improve the look of my skin! Aveeno sent out a gift basket to their ambassadors issuing a challenge. Use Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, and Daily Moisturizing Lotion daily for the remainder of November, and report back with the results in early December.  My already dry skin is even drier with the rain and chilly weather we’ve had lately.  YES, even Arizona can sometimes be cold!

Aveeno Daily Challenge! | RagingRouge.com

Aveeno Daily Challenge!

It’s an easy enough routine. Simply use the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash in the shower, and then apply the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion on your damp skin, or throughout the day as needed.  I’ll admit I love the way Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion feels on my skin, so re-applying has been easy to remember.

Want to participate? Anyone can!

Retail price of a 12 fl. oz pump of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is $8.49, and Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash is $6.99.  Not a huge investment to make, for healthier looking skin!  Share your photos with the tag #AveenoDailyChallenge!

Sold at local drugstores, or online at Ulta.com, Amazon.com, Target, and Drugstore.com.

Why the dropper? This formula is very thin, and an open top would make it difficult to control the amount of product used.  This dropper allows you to dispense the precise amount of product needed for your routine, and prevent waste!

MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation is available in 23 shades, and retails for $33.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogNot to be judgy, but are you REALLY a fan, if you don’t wear a special scent to show your team spirit?  I’ve seen fan makeup, but had never read of a fan-inspired line of fragrance until I heard about 12 Scents.  When I first read about this new brand, I couldn’t help but smile.  The Seahawk fans in my life are pretty hard-core, so I thought it made perfect sense that a line of fragrance has emerged from the fan fervor of the 12th man.

12 Scents, Game Day Fragrance

Game Day is described as a feminine soft floral citrus.   This scent is energetic and playful, perfect for daytime wear.  I love the blue and green tie detail at the throat of the bottle, and the adorable little “12” charm!

12th Gal is described by the brand as a feminine oriental floral.  This scent is more sexy and sultry.

Whatever your scent preference, true “12s” will definitely want to check out this lineup of fan fragrances by 12 Scents!  Both of these scents are available in an Eau de Parfum 30 mL bottle for $89, and an 8 mL travel bottle for $31.

Lather Unscented Body Wash Review

Lather Unscented Body Wash Review | RagingRouge.com

Lather Unscented Body Wash Review

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogI’m  a BIG FAN of bathtime.  When my boys were little, I always made an effort to make bathtime fun.  I would blow Gymboree bubbles while they played in my soaking tub.  To them, it was much like playing in a bubbly baby pool, my tub was so deep!  I always had a bar stocked with bubble “flavors” for them to pick from.

So when it comes to experiences like adding the scent of my choice to Lather’s Unscented Body Wash, a part of me long-forgotten was truly excited!  Perhaps the best part of “mixing” a fun bath-time scent at Lather is the fact that no synthetic fragrance is used.  The essential oils added to the formula don’t just smell yummy, they are great for your skin!

Lather Scent Recipies | RagingRouge.com

Lather Scent Recipes

I wasn’t feeling too creative, so I selected my scent from the Lather Recipes list.  I selected Lemon cupcake, knowing that the scent was playful enough to be interesting for my kids but also a welcome addition to my own morning routine.  This body wash is simply terrific!  It’s a great cleanser for dry skin.  Those with scent sensitivities can skip the oils and keep it unscented.
