Face of the Day

I love my Saturday off. It usually involves me spending time with family or running errands. So I like to be comfortable. And I like my makeup to be kind of comfortable too. It’s not really a no makeup look but it’s a no-fuss look. Something I can throw on and know that I look put together without trying too hard.

So for skincare I have my current morning routine. I always start with my La Bella Figura barbary fig seed oil and then apply either argan oil or lately I’ve been trying LBF’s barbary fig renewal serum. Eye cream has been by Kahina which I’m testing out and will have a review up in another week or two. My SPF has been the same 100% Pure one I’ve been using forever. Last but not least we have lips and it’s my current favorite LBF la curacio. Not that I’m having a current love affair with LBF or anything…

My makeup for the day was simple and easy. I went with fresh skin thanks to Vapour Luminous Foundation (shade 115), and Illusionist concealer (shade 010). I followed up with Vapour Aura Multi-Use in Torch and a little rms living luminizer. I never leave the house without brows so I use my trusty Jane Iredale Bitty brow kit in blonde. Josie Maran mascara and Bite beauty lipstick in Fig and I was out the door. 
Today was spent baking cookies with my mom and trying on new lipsticks!

Barbary Fig Seed Oil

This product is a total gem! I was lucky enough to receive this sample of La Bella Figura Cold Pressed Barbary Fig Seed Oil* in my recent Goodebox. Originally it was supposed to be the famed Decouverte Under Eye Repair serum but I think fate intervened. My skin has been so in love with since first application. I had read about Barbary Fig Seed Oil for helping with under eye circles and was anxious to try some.  I read more on La Bella Figura’s website that Barbary Fig Seed oil is brimming with antioxidants, Omega-3 and Vitamin E. Ingredients that  help to hydrate skin as well as soothe skin that is sensitized or stressed. Pretty much everything I look for this time of year in my skincare. 

So at first I was just applying this twice a day as an eye treatment. Then one night out of desperation for help with my dry tender skin I applied it all over and headed to bed. I woke up with the most beautiful clarity to my skin. It was soft and hydrated and I was just astounded. Argan oils really help with my dryness but often don’t take care of my redness/sensitivity. Finding something that takes care of both was kind of amazing.

I’ve played a lot with this sample since I’ve gotten it and have found that not only is it great alone but it also pairs well with other oils. (I tried RMS beauty oil and Olie Biologique Argan) 
It also works well under makeup as long as you give it a few minutes between oil, sunscreen and makeup application. 

I’ve just ordered a full size** of this as I decided my face cannot live without it.
