MAKEUP WITH INSPIRATION:
I've been quite fortunate to have traveled in my life to many places and have even had the opportunity to travel outside of the States a few times as well. What has really stood out for me no matter where I've gone, is that are all inspired by beauty in different ways. I've also come to realize that considering different approaches and ways of doing things in beauty gives me even more options- there are possibilities that you might now have even considered before...meaning you might just miss out ;)
One of my fav' examples can be found in the beautiful city of Paris- they are spectacularly gorgeous and vibrant! And when it comes to beauty, I greatly admire the style of Parisian women who go for fresh faces with no contouring and light highlighting on the face, a simple red lip, and smokey eyes with a rich & creamy texturing. They are fun and non-rigid in their makeup, skincare, and hair care routines :) When I recently came across a fantastic beauty brand with this same inspiration, I knew I had to give them a try.
WANDER BEAUTY was co-founded and created by high fashion supermodel Lindsay Ellingson. She's been a model for everyone from Victoria's Secret to Chanel and has picked up quite a few tips and tricks from some of the best makeup artists in the industry! Lindsay was captivated by the effortless beauty of Parisian women when she began her career in Paris some years ago and it was this inspiration that motivated her to create the new Paris Collection! Make sure to see what the collection is all about and get the lowdown on 2 great products from the WANDER BEAUTY Paris Collection below:
THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:
Love Lock Hydrating Lip Gel
I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this color turned out on me and it would be a beautiful red that would go well for most skin tones. There's a nice feel that leaves your lips soft and moisturized, with a beautifully designed metal twist-up tube that makes application on-the-go a cinch :)
The color also lasts surprisingly well and is nicely pigmented- I tend to have much dryer lips in the winter and this Hydrating Lip Gel went on smoothly and left my lips looking fab! If you've been seeking a vibrant lip color that goes on more like a gel and has the properties of a gloss- but it looks like lipstick. This is a difficult achievement, yet WANDER BEAUTY pulls it off perfectly.
Catch the Light Highlighter
This is a fool-proof tool from WANDER BEAUTY that goes on light and smooth, with a creamy formula whipped all into one stick. This item features the same twist-up well-designed applicator that makes taking it with a great product that's super easy to use. I really love the color that turns out and that the product allows you to build and blend with ease. When it comes to highlighters, I can tend to be a tad picky.
With fair skin, it's easy for the color to look odd and not really work for my skin tone- this creamy, silky smooth stick version from WANDER BEAUTY is just the opposite :) The color is perfect and I'd still recommend for all skin tones as the shades of shimmer and gold in this product are super flattering. If you're looking for a stylish, effective, and simple way to highlight without all of the fuss, then this is the product for you!
