Wednesday On The Web

by Lindsay on August 9, 2017

I have a serious case of wanderlust on my mind. More than once, I have almost hit purchase on a last-minute weekend getaway. But I didn’t let it get the best of me. I decided to save for something really fabulous in 2018. Puglia, Bali, a Canadian cruise, perhaps? Meanwhile, I will be dreaming of being on the beach above. Some links from my internet trolling this week:

Dangerous beauty ingredients.

I am totally hooked on Halo Top ice cream and they just released seven new flavors!

This spa visit sounds dreamy (and the products are packaged so beautifully).

My favorite summer sandals in gold.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex II on Belle Belle Beauty


A come to you today with a bold statement: I am not sure my personal skin care routine will ever be complete without the classic Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex. The formula is so outstanding in fighting puffiness and dark circles. This silky gel is proven to reduce signs of aging like wrinkles as well.

Immediately, I notice a smoother appearance under my eyes. The puffiness subsides and my dry skin soaks up the application for a more youthful appearance. Over time, it can help with dark circles and uneven skin tones. I love the cushioned feel without being oily. I use just a small amount on my pinky and blend around my eye at night. I guess it comes with an applicator, but, per usual, I accidentally threw it away. Oops.

Available at Nordstrom.

My Summertime Makeup Routine

Summertime Makeup Routine on Belle Belle Beauty

My mornings are always rushed. When will I ever learn? But one thing I have mastered is a quick makeup routine. I’ve been so pleased with this set of products that I couldn’t resist sharing. And not to mention this whole thing takes me less than five minutes (4:26 minutes this AM thanks to my handy Apple Watch stopwatch).

  • After using my favorite Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Lotion Sunscreen With Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (which is oddly moisturizing), I apply Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Warm Radiance, a medium peach beige/ for medium complexions with pink undertones. It camouflages my hyper-pigmentation without a heavy or cake-y looking coverage. I just apply with my fingers, but a beauty blending sponge would also work well. 
  • Next, I brighten under my eyes with NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer in Honey. Normally I don’t care for matte finish but this works nicely with the illuminating tinted moisturizer and it has great staying power. Sometimes I use a brush to blend this in, but usually I apply just with my fingers. I also do some spot coverage on blemishes if necessary if the tinted moisturizer doesn’t cut it on its own.
  • One of my favorite new products of the season is the Laura Mercier J’adore Le Soleil Sunrise Highlighter Crayon. I apply two stripes under my cheek bones and blend upward for just a wash of color – very sun-kissed and natural. Also, a little on the eyelids adds a touch of color.
  • Another favorite find of the summer is BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Crème Highlighter in Moonstone. I tap a little bit of this under my eyes, down my nose and above my cupid’s bow. It also adds a nice touch under the brow. The cream consistency allows for such a natural and “grown up” highlighter application.
  • I’ve really embraced a bold brow lately and have been using two products to get the look. First, I use the brush end of Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil in Universal Shade to tame any unruly, rogue hairs. Next, I use the pencil to fill in any sparse spots. Lastly, I set the shape and add color with LASHFOOD BROWFOOD Tinted Brow Enhancing Gelfix in Brunette. It has a peptide blend promises to deliver fuller, stronger brows. While I have only been using it for a couple weeks, I am hopeful about some of my sparse spots getting some growth. Will keep you posted.
  • I am still hooked on Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Nothing has quite the precision and staying power. I apply a quick and thin line right against my lashes. I did try the brown shade, Mad Max Brown. But it had no where close the pigment and ultimately went into the trash can.
  • Last but not least, I use Lancôme DÉFINICILS WATERPROOF High Definition Mascara in Black. I am a waterproof mascara devotee – I just get way too much fallout with regular mascara. I make every effort to get the brush right against the lashes at the root for the best effect.

Lastly, I got a peel today by the fabulous Gabriel Horn here in Tulsa. It promises no downtime which I love in the middle of the work week. I will pop back in and share results in a couple of days.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask on Belle Belle Beauty

When a product repeatedly sells out at Sephora, you know it is a good thing. I had to wait about a month to get my hands on Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask and it was worth every moment. First, what is a sleeping mask? Inspired by Korean beauty rituals, a sleeping mask is one that works overnight. The formula is key here otherwise it could cause quite a mess. This bouncy gel is pillow-proof. It is also oil-free and surprisingly lightweight.

I’ve used the mask several times over the last couple of weeks and each morning, I wake up with hydrated, smooth skin that looks glow-y and radiant. The mask is infused with hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract to add moisture. AHAs clarify and smooth skin by exfoliating dead skin cells. I use two scoops for a generous layer after cleansing skin. Allow to absorb for several minutes and wash off in the AM. If sleeping masks aren’t your thing, apply a thick layer and rinse after 10 minutes (advised for more sensitive skin).

Vegan-friendly and cruelty-free made without synthetic dyes and mineral oils. Free of parabens and sulfates. I hesitated writing a review about something that is currently unavailable but Sephora made it so easy to get on the wait list, I thought I’d encourage you to hop on the list as well. They sent me an email notifying me the mask was in stock again and it was in my hot hands within days.
