My First Vlog!

 

So,  I learned A LOT in making my first makeup tutorial video.  We can only go up from here 😉  Overall, I thought some of you may find it helpful – so I decided to share it! Videos have been my #1 request from my friends and followers, so I could not disappoint!

In this video, I am highlighting two of my favorite brands – 100% Pure and Beautycounter.  The look I am showing is an everyday look that takes less than 10 minutes to apply!

100% Pure is a brand that I trust because they are committed to making quality, clean products.  They are 100% natural, 100% cruelty-free, 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins

Here’s the lowdown on my faves:

By now, you are all aware of my undying love for the 100% Pure BB Cream.  It is so good – full coverage, glowy, SPF.  I wear the Shade Aglow – it only comes in 3 shades, but if one works for you – you will LOVE this foundation.

Long-lasting Concealer in Golden Peach is my everyday concealer.  It is a full-coverage formula that resists oil, sweat, water and caking.  I wear it under my eyes and it has a glowy (not matte) finish – which is a non-negotiable for me when it comes to concealer.  I cannot stand a heavy, matte undereye concealer!  Make sure you check out the ingredients on this one – it’s literally made with peach, apricot and so many other natural ingredients!

I use my Pretty Naked II Palette pretty much every day – and everyone else must love it too because it has been Sold Out for quite some time!  100% Pure always has really pigmented shades- the blush and highlighter in the palette are no exception.  At 20% off, it’s the perfect chance to give this palette a try!

The Creamy Eyeliner is a staple in my makeup bag.  It goes on extremely smooth and has a rich black color.

The Black Tea Ultra Lengthening Mascara is a MUST for natural beauty lovers.  I keep this one on high rotation and it is one of the BEST mascaras I have EVER tried.  It is pigmented with black tea, cocoa and berry.  You can actually detect a hint of a berry scent on the wand!!  How’s that for natural?!

I love the Lip Caramel in Truffle.  I use it to create a stain that has a wash of color and tons of moisture!

I also used the following products from Beautycounter.  Beautycounter is a brand I trust because they have created The Never List – a list of over 1500 chemicals + toxic ingredients that they will not include in their products.  I also love that Beautycounter is passionate about the quality of the products that we put on our bodies and are making steps towards change for the industry as a whole.

Rosewater Mist – Clearly one of my all-time favorite products.  I use Rosewater to apply my makeup for a smooth + blended application, glowing appearance and added hydration.

Foundation Brush – I absolutely love applying foundation with this brush.  It is the perfect full, yet somewhat stiff brush to blend my makeup perfectly!

Bronzer – my duo is no longer available, but the Bronzer I use in it is Shade No. 1

100% Pure is a brand that I trust because they are committed to making quality, clean products.  They are 100% natural, 100% cruelty-free, 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins

Here’s the lowdown on my faves:

I use my Pretty Naked II Palette pretty much every day – and everyone else must love it too because it has been Sold Out for quite some time!  I would also love the Punk Princess Palette for a smokey eye.  100% Pure always has really pigmented shades- the blush and highlighter in the palette are no exception.  At 20% off, it’s the perfect chance to give this palette a try!

The Black Tea Ultra Lengthening Mascara is a MUST for natural beauty lovers.  I keep this one on high rotation and it is one of the BEST mascaras I have EVER tried.  It is pigmented with black tea, cocoa and berry.  You can actually detect a hint of a berry scent on the wand!!  How’s that for natural?!

For a bright pink lip for spring, the Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Marrakesh is to-die-for.  It’s seriously so good – the matte finish and staying power come from rice powder.  Don’t let the semi-matte finish scare you away, if you tend to have dry lips – this lipstick is packed with cocoa butter, shea butter and vitamin E.  The color is super intense and just gorgeous on!  I also love this, this and this lipstick.

Long-lasting Concealer in Golden Peach is my everyday concealer.  It is a full-coverage formula that resists oil, sweat, water and caking.  I wear it under my eyes and it has a glowy (not matte) finish – which is a non-negotiable for me when it comes to concealer.  I cannot stand a heavy, matte undereye concealer!  Make sure you check out the ingredients on this one – it’s literally made with peach, apricot and so many other natural ingredients!

Desert Sunrise New Release!

fullsizerender-jpg

I don’t think I could have created a more perfect palette, if I tried.  My favorite look is a bronze eye and face, with a pop of coral on the cheeks and lips.  I think it is so natural, fresh + pretty!  This palette and lip set is everything I love, all in one!

The palette itself costs the same as the Urban Decay Naked Palette and it is so much BETTER for you.  It is made with natural + clean ingredients, so you can feel good about that bronzy smokey eye!  And I always say, you literally lick your lip products off your lips – why would you want to ingest a product that has chemicals in it?

This Desert Sunrise Collection is just so good and for TODAY only, if you order the whole collection – you get a FREE EYE BRUSH!  Just head over to beautycounter.com/laurenhull to order.  Also, if you join my Band Of Beauty, you will receive a FREE Rose Neroli Soap, FREE SHIPPING over $100 and 15% in PRODUCT CREDITS BACK!!!  Who’s ready for SPRING?!

Winter Wonderland

img_4545

This past weekend, my side of the family all congregated in Asheville, North Carolina for a weekend reunion.  Most family drove from South Carolina, one brother + his girlfriend flew in from Denver and of course, we drove from Atlanta.  It was actually a belated ‘Christmas’ get together, because the timing just worked better for everyone.  We also had a mini celebration for my Mom’s Birthday (which is actually today), so that was special to have everyone together to celebrate her!

The weekend turned out to be eventful – the Denver crew had delayed flights, a surprise snow storm that made getting around surprisingly difficult, and a couple of other hiccups.  Ultimately, we are so happy that we all had the chance to be together because that does not happen every year.  So, we chalk it up as a ‘win’ and literally + figuratively braved the storm.  It was certainly a memorable trip!

For my Winter Wonderland attire, I stayed warm thanks to my new Patagonia jacket.  I typically stick to neutrals with outerwear, but this ‘Drumfire Red’ color was just muted enough to make it feel like I could wear it with anything!  There’s also something about Patagonia that is so flattering, that I always think people look put together when they are wearing that brand.  I will love this jacket for years to come – especially because it was a Christmas gift from Jonathan!  ❤

I would not have stayed dry without my Hunter Boots – there’s a reason why these things have become a classic.  They are just so good.  Speaking of classics, I don’t leave the house without my all black Ray Bans.

My accessories are oldies, but goodies and I have linked similar ones here:  blanket scarf (originally Forever 21), blush beanie (originally Forever 21), Coach leather gloves (mine are old).

Stay warm out there!  Atlanta is supposed to get back into the 70’s by Friday, so I will be shedding these layers by the weekend!

xoxo, Lauren

What’s in my bag?

IMG_4547.JPG

First of all, can we talk about this amazing makeup case from Kate Spade?  I absolutely love the amount of space and the sturdy walls.  Jonathan gave it to me for Christmas and I have loved everything about it!

Here are a few of my makeup bag staples:

  • Beautycounter Rosewater Mist – Rosewater is my cannot-live-without beauty product.  I use it as a toner, to set my skin before applying makeup.  I also spray a couple of sprays on my makeup brush, and use it to apply my foundation.  I swear it makes foundation go on smoother and more luminous.  I also use Rosewater for added moisture anytime throughout the day or the last thing I put on before bed.  It is completely multi-use and so good for your skin.

 

  • One Love Organics Vitamin C Brightening Serum – This was also a Christmas gift – I have wanted it so badly.  I love pretty much everything One Love Organics does, and this serum is no exception.  It adds moisture, balances my skin and has already improved my overall tone (it helps to smooth little lines)!  This serum is 100% natural and packed with amazing oils.  One of my friends swears that it has changed her skin.  I LOVE this product!!  I layer it with my Skin Dew for added moisture in this Winter Weather and my skin has not suffered from the cold!

 

  • Beautycounter Tint Skin Foundation – This foundation is SO GOOD.  It has a soft matte finish, medium-full coverage and it literally stays all day.  I seriously love this stuff and I have turned so many women on to it.  I wear the shade Sand and apply it with my Foundation Brush.  The Foundation Brush was designed specifically for this formula and I love it because I can determine how much coverage I want with it.  It also blends so well.

 

Of course, my makeup bag wouldn’t be complete without rosegold makeup brushes!  I love these for less than $20!
