Jane Iredale Pencil Eyeliners

Jane Iredale pencil eyeliners are some of my favorite natural liners that I’ve come across as a makeup artist. They’re super smooth and creamy, come in a great range of basic shades and have great durability. Creamy pencils are a must for me as I hate pencils that feel like you’re stabbing your eye (then again no one should like that right?). Now these aren’t the best for the waterline as far as longevity but they are comfortable to wear on the waterline. 
Below I have the all shades except the white, which I felt like I owned but can’t find anywhere. I also included Cocoa, which is technically a lip definer but I use as a warm brown liner. With the training I’ve had with JI over the years I’ve found that you can use lipliner on the eye area as they don’t use any FD&C dyes and are made with conditioning oils and waxes. Great for me as I love multi-purpose products!

5 Holiday Red Lipsticks

Seriously to me there is nothing more festive than a red lip. Now granted I love bright lipstick but this time of year there is something extra special about a swipe of red over the lips. Maybe it’s the contrast between darker winter colors and the brightness of red but either way I love it. 
So here is a list of a few of my favorite reds that you can try for the holidays. 
I am sorry that one of these is discontinued but it is such a favorite of mine I just couldn’t leave it out.

1. Ilia Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Bang Bang
A great red that is on the sheer side. This can be built up in intensity and looks great over a red lip pencil.

2. Jane Iredale PureMoist Lip Color in Carrie
A classic red lipstick, this is what I wear when I want that 1950s red lip. 

3. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Tannin
This is a gorgeous deep matte red that has a slight wine undertone. This has excellent wear time.

4. Revolution Organics Lipgloss in Freedom
This packs some serious punch for a lipgloss. If you’re a fan of reds you need this in your life. 

5. Jane Iredale PureMoist Lip Color in Joy
*tear* The one that got away. I have one little tube left of this and it was my favorite winter lip color. It’s the best of both worlds between berry and red. If you know a dupe for this please share!

And last but not least the one I’m lusting after

rms beauty lip2cheek in rapture
It looks like a fantastic brickish red. As I don’t have one I of course need it.

What is your favorite holiday lip color? What kind of makeup do you pair it with?

What’s in my purse?

So over on Pemberly Jones Pam posted a photo a couple days ago of her purse dump.
 I thought it would be totally fun to start a natural beauty tag for what we carry around in our bags day to day. Me, I’m a total lip product hoarder. 

See the photo below for evidence. 



3 lip balms, 2 tinted balms, 2 glosses, 4 lipsticks, 2 stains and 2 matte lip pencils later…

*Ahem* My name is Alexis and I have a lip product problem. 
In my defense I leave the house sans lips (mr.bunny declares them “sticky”) so I like to have a variety to choose from once I get to work. 

So what’s in your purse? Use hashtag #greenbeautypurse and tell me.

Finally…

So I’m finally getting life back in order and finding some time to start blogging again. As to where I’ve been my work has been crazy busy and I had a terrible skin issue that I was trying to work out. Thankfully all that’s being settled and I’m back with exciting news.

I’ve been featured on No More Dirty Looks!!! I am so excited I could hardly stand it. And I was featured on my birthday! How cool is that?!
Here is the link to the post : Alexis’s Morning Hair and Skincare Routine…Exposed!

I’ll post a review on my new Tata Harper Trio as well as the Kahina Giving Beauty Mask.

Also would you be interested in a video of me doing my normal morning makeup routine? Or video reviews of product? I’m getting a new computer that will have fancy new software for me to play around with so let me know.

Thanks for your patience while I get back up and running!

My Favorite Face

I have to tell you, I have two faces. Now don’t worry I’m not a circus act.
Let me explain.
At work I sell a different makeup line that what I tend to use on my days off. My day off face just wants to be relaxed and pretty but not trying too hard. My work face has to last through 8 hours of indoor heating, mag lamps and steam. It’s got to have staying power. But more on my “work face” in another post. This is about my twice a week favorite face. The products I tend to use on my day off help me achieve that “no makeup” look while still looking put together. These products together make me feel glowing and awake but not over done.
