After spending a week in Hawaii, I got used to going au naturel. You know, salty hair and dewy skin, with little-to-no effort involved. It was great. But now that I’m home, I’ve been struggling to replicate that balmy, glowing, beachy-sheen look.
I recently got my hands on some Arbonne Cosmetics, and combined with a few other products, I think I’ve found the magical combination. So here it is, a balmy beach look from the comfort of your own home (you can thank me later).
For starters, I use my Smile Brilliant whitening trays for 30-minutes while I prep my face. The trays are super comfortable, so I tend to leave them in until my hair and makeup are done. If you’re interested in snagging your own pair of pearly whites, you can use code ‘theoceanminded25’ to save $25 off of a custom tray.
While my teeth are workin’ their magic, I rinse my face with water and dab dry. Then I use a pump of the Leahlani Champagne Serum and rub it in to my face and neck. Since it’s an oily serum, it gives you a good base glow. I seriously live for this stuff. After that, I use the iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50 sunscreen allover my face and neck– because nobody wants wrinkles at thirty.
Once the serum and sunscreen have set, I use the Arbonne CC Cream and work it in to my face, making sure to blend it along the hairline and jaw. Then I dab Benefit’s Fake Up Concealer under my eyes, spritz the beauty blender with rose water and smooth out the concealer (see ya, bags). This concealer is Godsent, trust me.
I use two highlighters, because I love me some glow. First I put a dollop of the Arbonne Sheer Glow Highlighter on the back of my hand and blot it on to my cheek bones with the blender, and then I follow up with a little bit of Benefit’s Watt’s Up highlighter on my brow bones and cheeks. Afterwards I use the Arbonne Glow On Bronzer all over. I’m not big on a full-glam contouring look, so I use a big brush and bronze the better half of my face.
Last, I curl my lashes, put on some Arbonne It’s A Long Story Mascara and fill in my brows.
I wrap it up with a few sprays of rose water to set the makeup and voila: palmy and balmy. It’s easy peasy, and I’m all about an “I’m not wearing any makeup” makeup routine that I can finish in five minutes or less.
