So here are products you can find at your local drug store or department store that have Bean Approved as Amazing Products worth having in your beauty cabinet. Ones we keep on hand and love personally and use on Bean Styled Photo shoots, and Make-up Clients.
Keeping with the Retro wing and Cat eye trend the perfect liquid eyeliner pen. Does not streak and literally dries 2 seconds after you draw the line. Victoria’s Secret VS Graphic Eyeliner Pen simply ROCKS! The thin tip makes outlining and applying a thin line easy and is a great build-able formula. So you can make a thicker line as you go. Thin or Thick, Artistic of Simple VS Graphic Eyeliner Pen can create it all and the design of the tip helps you! With a light hand you won’t have to worry about going overboard or too much coming out. BEAN LOVIN IT!
Since we are already talking about Victoria’s Secrets. We need to mention VS Fresh Face Brightening Gel Cream– a very light formula that soaks right into skin. It is a Good primer and adds great highlight with just the right amount of mica in the product. It also has caffeine to de-puff eyes and wrinkles. Plus Shea butter, witch hazel, chamomile flower, ginkgo biloba and Aloe for moisture. We have used this product alone and under makeup. This product is worth having any day and really brightens the face. It gives off an even skin tone, highlighting and we can say has been a good addition to our skin care routine. And of course it’s Super Model Approved in which the VS models use when traveling by air to help hydration and puffiness. Perfect for the under eye area and temples where you want to add subtle highlights for that fresh flawless look.
Next is a brand we love. Their beauty products are of great quality and at a reasonable low-cost. They use natural ingredients and of course we appreciate that. E.L.F. EyesLipsFace.com has Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks found in Target. They are great for summer, and if applied over translucent powder will last all day. The color Bean Styled tried was “Little Miss Thing” (second one) which is a gorgeous Nude with gold tint. Great for a little shimmer on a nude for those natural looks being created.
Let’s Talk about the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition line. Bean Styled tried the shampoo and conditioner. In about 2 weeks we seen improvement and dramatically felt improvement in the strength and smoothness.
Enough to get us curious about the Garnier Miracle Dry Oil. Bean Styled recommends this as part of your skin care routine. It is great for the face. Simple apply 1 spritz to hands then face after you shower. Or spritz on a hot wet towel, ring out and apply to face for 5 minutes for a great quick moisturizing facial. This product is oil so for face or hair makes sure you spritz the hands first so you do not go over board. But for the body, Bean Styled recommends spraying it on after you get out of the shower, or after a long day at the beach or pool, and rub in with hands. It surprisingly soaks in fast and leaves no sticky feel. This product also leaves a great exotic smell, no need to apply perfume. This line is definitely sticking around in our beauty recommendations for a while.
Ardell Accents 3/4 length of normal size lashes. Once you learn how to apply false lashes and continue to do it. It really does become easier. These 3/4 length are great for beginners. You don’t have to worry about holding down as much as a full length lash. This is Beauty Genius for two reasons: 1. Put then on outside edge for volume and/or dramatic looks 2. Apply them directly in center for extreme volume and eye-opening effect. Apply your mascara for bold voluminous lashes. Also Perfect for a Day Time look. No mascara needed or use clear mascara for extra bond and hold. Just be sure to let your lashes dry a minute before apply mascara to give the glue time to bond really well. After removing use your makeup remover gel or antibacterial soap to clean your false lashes, rinse, let them air dry and they can be reused a few times before they tend to get brittle. So In love they are almost worn every day in this Studio.
Cover Girl Flamed Out Mascara. In which here is in Very Black Blaze. The ultimate mascara to get volume with absolutely no clumps! Easy to create the cat eye, or Retro Glam wing eye effect with the Volume Igniter Brush which is designed to get the volume right in the middle and outer lashes. If you have very thin, barely there lashes this would be the mascara you have been waiting on! You can really feel the brush comb thru the lashes and separate which creates the most amazing volume. MUST TRY! You can tell the model on the right obviously has thin lashes. Flamed Out created such volume and absolutely gorgeous lashes.
If you are getting sick of that red, irritated feeling after a wax let me fill you in on what to try! Nair has out a Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care Face Trio, plus other products in the same line for the bikini area and etc. Nair has always been an enemy for me. I have extremely sensitive skin and original Nair for most and for me Burned like Crazy! But I am here to tell you that The Brazilian Spa Clay not only smells 99% better than regular Nair it did not burn at all! No itching, no irritating. Which is comforting since it is being applied to the face and other sensitive areas. The mineral oil, Mango Butter and Acai Berry really help protect, hydrate, and calm the area you are removing hair from. 10 minutes and the dark hairs and fine hairs that make up what we like to call a Mommystache, (since it started to appear after having kids) was gone. We used an aloe based cleansing Tissue to wipe it off and you could literally see all the little hairs. The moisturizer that comes with the trio is thick and really hydrates the skin. No redness or irritation and it has been about a week with no hair re-growth yet. It works and it save’s the embarrassment of asking for the lip to be done when you go in for your normal eyebrow waxing at the salon.
Next is Freeman Vita-K Dark Circles Professional. Long Nights, late stay at work, or baby keeping you up with little to no sleep contributes to dark circles. This product really makes a difference you can see. Peptides & Pro Vita K Complex; an amino acid complex, which helps with skin tone and elasticity. Added mica helps diffuse light and brighten the under eye immediately. Also, This product has an ingredient called matrixyl 3000 which helps stimulate cell renewal. Use for about 2 weeks day and night and see how your Peepers look. This product is sensitive enough to use twice a day but if any irritation occurs just use daily. It’s a great daytime eye cream to wear under makeup.
The Best saved for Last is…… Boot’s Expert Sensitive Line! Bean Styled picked up a 3 piece Kit. That included Boot’s Expert Sensitive Cleansing and toning wipes, Sensitive rehydrating eye cream, and rehydrating moisturizer. For the fashionista price of $12.00 (which on their website it is CHEAPER) one would think they were using a high-end skin care line. Not only does it feel luxurious but waking up with brighter more hydrated skin than ever is always a plus and you can thank Boots.
-First use Boot’s Expert Sensitive Cleansing and Toning wipes. Hypoallergenic, with aloe Vera and mineral water. I have not used a wipe that not only was soft and gentle but completely took off the darkest eye makeup, daily foundation, BB creams and powders! Left my skin feeling clean and toned.
-Next use Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating eye cream which soaks right in and instantly hydrates the eye area. With all the ingredients as the other two products but with added sunflower seed oil!
-Finish up with Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating Moisturizer. It is a thick moisturizer that when applied soaks right into skin. This product is wonderful for a nightly moisturizer.
Great for Late Nights and leave no excuse for not taking off the days makeup. Also great for those late mornings from studying all night. Bean Styled recommends this line for your night-time skin care routine. Another bonus is that these products are fragrance and lanolin free. Which many people with sensitive skin have reactions to.
