Sometimes we are up and sometimes we are down.  But our friend Rebecca makes it all look beautiful. Rebecca has a lightheartedness about her with an easy smile. She is as fun as she is fit!  Her weekly fitness routine is a combination of spin, strength training, kickboxing, and yoga . Weekends are spent hiking and biking with her three beautiful children. Cross training makes anyone ready for anything!  In Rebecca’s spare time she is representing Rodin + Fields.  She swears her life on their lash boost and we are here to tell you she has enviable lashes!

Rebecca is a no nonsense girl and usually runs around in her favorite Athleta Sportswear, the Powervita Collection. Of course every girl wants to know what Rebecca does for her nutrition. She loves her BioSil Advanced Collagen Generator, starts her day with black coffee and berries and believes in a big lunch and a lighter dinner. She loves a good dark chocolate and lives by the belief, everything in moderation. She never leaves the house without her Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in sunny berry color.

We wanted to play with some new makeup we are loving and asked Rebecca if we could use her pretty face!  It was a blast and here are the products we used:

Makeup Used:

BB Cream: Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer in medium. We are loving all things Tarte.  This held up to the test!  It has Vitamin A, C, E and is rich in essential oils.

Concealer: Kat Von D Lock-it concealer creme in medium 23. This has relentless staying power.

Eye shadow: NYX Cosmic Metals Palette.  Metallic shades are all the rage and using soft tones of purple and taupe really brought out her blue eyes.

Liner: Kat Von D. Tattoo Liner in Trooper– satin black.  This is our all time favorite liquid liner.  It is easy to use and stays on with out any fading.  Just a slight flick on the ends for a subtle cat eye.

Mascara: Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara.  An old classic but a new favorite for Your Basic Beauty.

Blush:  RMS blush in Promise.  Link to my previous post to discover my RMS obsession!

Lipstick: Nars Satin Lip pencil (in Rikugien) Most universal color they make.  We are never without this color in our makeup kit. We followed it up with a swoosh of Huda Beauty Lip Strobe in Enchanting. (A Must Have!)

Eyebrow pencil: Brow Power Waterproof perfector 5 in 1 eyebrow pencil. (Universal Taupe)  “Taupe” works very well on every complexion. Check out our eyebrow post for proper eyebrow grooming.

Highlighter: Becca Shimmering Skin perfector liquid highlighter in Champagne Pop.  I prefer a liquid highlighter in the summer and it gives such a natural glow!

Setting Powder: Too Faced Primed and Powerless Pressed Powder in Matte Finish.  We are testing this for clients being photographed or filmed. It has a high resolution flawless effect.  Lightly dust on forehead, chin and nose area.  Take a small brush and pat directly under the eye area to prevent any smudging.
