Hellllllo there gorgeous! Today I have some wishful thinking for warmer days with this super simple, sunkissed "no make up" look. And don't worry - this look is REALLY just the bare necessities and letting your natural beauty shine through featuring a gorgeous blush, foundation duo, (my absolute new favorite) mascara and bronzer all from the lovely Victoria Jackson collection!

Victoria Jackson Cosmetics motto is "This is not a mask. This is make up. And at Victoria Jackson Cosmetics, we believe it’s all about letting your natural beauty shine through." and I absolutely love it. They're all about natural beauty and emphasizing it.

Okie dokie. So first, I started with the Victoria Jackson Foundation Duo (in the shade Light). Real talk: I thought it was going to be powder when I opened the compact so imagine my surprise when I found out it was cream! Not just any cream but the most amazing, smooth foundation cream my face has ever had the pleasure of meeting. The compact includes two oil-free cream shades that can used separately (one as foundation, one as a concealer) or blended together for a custom shade. 

The shade on the left is a light, pink-toned color while the one on the right is slightly darker and yellow-based. I applied the yellow-based shade all over my face using a  no-name foundation brush and then applied the left shade as a concealer. I really loved that it brightened  up underneath my eyes without looking ghost-like. Also, I didn't set this just to see what it would do on its own and was super surprised to see neither the foundation nor the concealer creased on me. Thumbs up! Both shades can be built up to be full coverage but I kept it sheer and really loved that even with one layer, it covered up my flaws and left a super natural, dewy look. My skin felt so nice and breathable. Definitely a huge fan!

Next, I applied the Give Me Sun Bronzer with the majority of the product right underneath the apples of my cheeks and then brought the rest up to the apples to create a natural contour. I also applied this to my forehead as well as under my jaw. This bronzer creates a gorgeous, matte, sunkissed glow on almost all skintones and since it has Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate to hydrate and soften your skin.

We're almost done! Taking the Perfect Everyday Blush in Garden, I applied just a light swipe over the apples of my cheeks. This blush is extremely pigmented and can definitely be built up to be bold. Garden is a beautiful rosy pink with a very subtle bronze shimmer. I mean, very subtle but does add a little somethin' somethin' to the shade that I can't explain. It creates this beautiful, natural look. I absolutely love it!

Lastly, I used the Lush Mascara which is - hands down - my new favorite mascara! The consistency is firm and a teensy bit on the dry side which is my absolute fave. For me, a drier mascara is easier to work with and doesn't clump very often. This mascara volumized and lengthened my lashes for a super whispie lashes.

 The final look! 

Overall: I'm absolutely in love with all of these products! I enjoyed that they were light and left a natural feel. The bronzer and blush worked amazing together and created a super pretty natural sunkissed look. The foundation duo was awesome and left great coverage with little product used. I will definitely be looking into using more Victoria Jackson products!
