Color #173 is a beautiful bronzey color. Perfect for the beach or for a Summer glow look. It gave me a bit of a golden shimmer on my lip and a nice wash of tan bronzed color.

This is great! It matches my lipcolor almost exactly! I always wanted one like this. It just made my lips a nice even tone and made them appear slightly fuller.

This is the one I purchased. I am in love with it as I was afraid it may be too pink but it just is barely pink, so cute!

Faerie Organic makeup is Faerie impressive

I used to wear a ton of makeup. I mean a lot. I felt the need to cover my face so much that you couldn’t see a thing, not any semblance of MY skin under there. I got over that.

Now, I enjoy a nice powder or liquid foundation that is not only a healthier choice than the toxic chemical laden ones but one that doesn’t cake on and sit on my face like a mask.

I have only a select few brands I truly enjoy and that cover, don’t break me out, clog my pores or feel cakey. This is definitely one of the winners.

DSC00248 Seriously. this stuff is nice. Look at my seriousness.

 

Faerie Organics foundation powders come in a nice array of shades. I mean wow. In the Fair shades alone they have ten options!

Here I am wearing the Faerie Organic foundation powder in Fairly-light (airbrush). They have full coverage called Maximum Coverage and Airbrush for lighter to medium coverage. I usually go for maximum but the airbrush was very nice and I loved that it didn’t leave my pores noticeable.

Most powders, you will find when you start to buff them on that they leave little holes where your pores are and it looks awful. I didn’t have that with this powder and I was so glad because it’s such a nightmare to fix! I have had it on for over 8 hours now and have oily skin and it’s holding up really well. #impressed.

I then gave myself a tad more color with the Sun-Goddess Bronzer. I like this as it is a nice deep color but not too dark for me. Great for contouring and bronzing.

I added the final touch of the perfectly rose colored blusher in “true” and I LOVE it. It is the pink that goes with my skin tone. I am so happy about this color. I am in love, for sure.

It feels so light and so clean and not  heavy at all and yet I feel confidently done up.

QUICK Viatnamese-style Rolls

springrolls

I wandered out into the kitchen. Much to my surprise I see my Husband, of all people, making a dish. He’s never really been one to get the “I must cook this” bug up his butt like I do everyday. He isn’t as inspired as I am I suppose. Because let me just tell you…he CAN make food! Apparently!

He was soaking some rice paper rounds, thawing shrimp, gathering and slicing veggies and rolling up some Vietnamese styled rolls. I was amazed. I quickly hopped on that train and whipped up a peanut dipping sauce (gf,vegan and healthy ofcourse)!

SoOooOoO good! All he did was this :

1) Soak rice paper rounds (found at Asian markets uber cheap)

2) carefully lay onto cutting board or flat surface

3) Place whatever veggies or fillings you’d like (we used shrimp, cucumber,carrots and spinach)

4) roll up like a burritio 😉

5) Um. Duh. Enjoy!
