Wren's Beauty Hit List

Wren's Beauty Hit List 

1. TANNING 

I am super pasty and pale but love looking tanned in the summer. I use Vita Liberata Invisa Foaming Tan Water (light to medium) and Vita Liberata Gradual Tanning Lotion. I use the foaming tan water after I have exfoliated in the shower. Use the glove to apply the mousse evenly over the body. Tan will appear 4-5 hours later. The next day after showering I apply the gradual tanning lotion - enhances the tan a bit to a bit of a darker glow.

I follow-up every 2 or 3 days with the same routine. I have used so many tanning products and these give the most natural glowy look!

2. CLEANSERS

I am a big double cleanser at night. I used to use an oil cleanser but much prefer this Joelle Cicocco Creme Emulsionnante. It's light and hydrating and removes all my makeup and sunscreen from the day. I follow that up with my favourite cleanser from IS Clinical (Cleansing Complex).

3. NIGHT CREAM

I am currently dealing with hormonal acne (which suckkkkkkks!) but there are a few great products I have found to deal with it. 
One specific product is Jan Marini Duality - this product is incredible. Deals with adult acne while also minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It has two chambers - one with Benzoyl Peroxide and one with a Retinol. Dispense from each chamber and apply to face (my current nightly routine is cleansing, apply a hyaluronic acid or hydrating serum like Skinceuticals B5 and then this product and then a moisturizer if necessary). Use this product every other night as it can be drying. In just 3 weeks it has cleared up my cystic acne and I have seen a huge difference - it's really incredible!!

4. SUNCREEN

One of my fave suncreens is Alumiers Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Untinted SPF 40. Lightweight and doesn't pill under makeup. It's a sheer moisturizing suncreen - and I put it on every single day ... cloudy day, winter day ... always wear your suncreen!!!

5. MASK

 Biologique Masque Vivant IS THE HOLY GRAIL of masks. I love this product - it does everything from minimizing breakouts to purify the skin to unclog and tighten the pores. It smells really horrible but worth the putrid fragrance. Mix it with a bit of baking soda (trade secret!). I use this mask 2-3 times a week - leave it on for 20-30 mins and wash off with warm water and a washcloth.

6. HIGHLITER/ Bronzer

Another cult fave - this one came highly recommended to me by my beauty guru sis in law @itsjennarennert. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar - highlighter for cheekbones on one side and bronzer on the other side.. Use this every day!!

7. CONCEALER

Cle De Peau Correcteur Visage Concealer Stick - one of the best under eye concealers out there. Not cheap but worth every penny ... especially for mommas who get little to no sleep but want to look rested.

8. BROWS

I use to use a brow pencil but that required too much precision. I have since moved to a tinted brow gel from Mix Beauty (in Brunette). Provides the best tint and gives me great shape and definition. BONUS - I use it to cover the small grey hairs that are sprouting at the top of my hairline (ughhhhh)

9. TINTED Lipstick

I don't wear lipstick and I am not a fan of lipgloss - Gee Beauty's Vitamin C Lipsticks are perfect. They come in a variety of shades (I love the clear one). But I recently discovered the tinted shade in Nectar Balm - gives you the perfect amount of natural colour (like you have just bitten your lips).
