On my Radar [beauty edition]

Lake Tahoe, The snowiest place on earth

nail polish, berry lip glow, tinted lip oil, blush

Around this time of year I start to crave a bit more color on my face. It’s the perfect way to restore some life back in after a long winter. My wardrobe is still generally neutral and full of soft earthy colors, so a subtle pop on my lips or cheeks is all the freshening I need.

I loved the Burt’s Bees lipstick that came out last year so much, and I have high hopes for the tinted lip oil whenever I get my hands on it. I imagine it will be quite sheer, and perfect for anyone who has a bit of lipstick fear! Something about the words “lip” and “oil” sound so good in these chilly days.

The skin illusion blush looks like a lovely compliment to a variety of skin tones! Make sure you pair it with warm lip shades so you don’t interfere with the palette!

I love a gel manicure as much as the next girl, but I hate how brutalized my nails get afterwards. I’m so excited to try the Essie Treat Love & Color polish. If it’s chip resistant, like I’m hoping, it’ll be the perfect in between polish!

I love gel manis, but my nails used to have a lot of damage. If you don’t already, check out the Red Carpet Manicure removal instructions. Turns out, proper removal really makes a huge difference (no damage). I think their instructions could apply to any gel. Use a file to remove shine and on the free edge, soak for 15+ min (foil or the plastic clips with a saturated cotton ball), and gently wipe off. Moisturizer after. Also, I use the step #1 side of a nail buffer before application vs using a harsh file on nail surface. Harsh digging into nail before gel application is not needed in my opinion (like what every salon does).
