BeautyTalk - Face Ready in Five "The Summer Edition"

I believe in always putting your best foot forward. I also believe in being efficient with your time as there is always something you need to be doing. That means I usually do the same makeup routine each and everyday with a little extra thrown in for special events or that day you just want to feel extra good. Trying new makeup items? Who has time for that!? But, you notice chatter, when over and over again, the time comes to cave and see what the fuss is about.

What fuss am I speaking of? Well just Glossier's foray into the makeup arena with the introduction of their Phase 2 products. These were closely followed up with the addition of Haloscope, a highlighter like no other, which according to Refinery29 lives up to its hype!


So I ordered Phase 2 and Haloscope about a month ago and gave them a shot and as a result revamped my makeup routine!First some background: Phase 2 includes three products which can also be purchase separately. These products include: 

  1. Boy Brow to thicken, fill in, and groom eyebrows into place.
  2. Stretch Concealera new type of concealer with elastic micro waxes that move with your face instead of caking on top of it, and nourishing oils that give a dewy, glowing finish. 
  3. Generation Glip color that gives the look and finish of a stain, but that glides on and wears like a tinted balm.

Then there is Haloscope considered a dew effect highlighter. It comes in two shades: Quartz for a pearlescent highlight and Topaz for a golden glow. 

Below is my new and updated wakeup and dash routine:

1. Apply whatever rosehip seed oil I have on hand and First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair® Cream Intense Hydration.
2. Dab Glossier Stretch Concealer under eyes and as needed
3. Mix Boscia BB Cream  in natural finish with Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in dark on my hand and apply with Beauty Blender
4. Swipe Glossier Haloscope highlighter around eyes in a half-halo around each eye (brow bone to cheekbone), on nose bridge and anywhere the sun would usually hit then blend edges with fingertips
5. Fill in brows with a few strokes of Glossier's Boy Brow
6. Curl eyelashes and apply Eyeko Sport Mascara
7. Dab lips with Fresh's Sugar advanced lip treatment (I am a no color gal on most days).

Dash.

The result is a very dewy fresh and I don't have to try at all look!

All in all, I have enjoyed using all the products and will continue to use until I finish. Of all the products, I definitely cannot see myself going without the Stretch Concealer, Haloscope (which I'll have to order in Quartz once my tan fades) and the perfecting tint which was already in rotation
