The power of a product called CCTM... and the beauty of Kennedy!

I've been on a CCTM roll - CCTM this, CCTM that... it's a hot mess. You know how sometimes putting foundation on seems like the most annoying thing ever?! Yeah? Me too. On those days, I roll with the power of my CCTM.

Please stop saying CCTM Emilie

Fine. So CCTM (ha!) is the Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer. It's basically the cooler and better big sister of your BB Cream/CC Cream, and here's why:

  • It's color correcting: meaning the greenish tint it has covers redness really beautifully (see photos below)
  • It decreases sun and age spots AND has a mechanical shield to protect you from the sun - like literally it works on your skin as you wear it. How amazing?!
  • It comes in 2 tints, and looks good on everyone. 
  • It smells lovely and has a great finish (not shiny or anything weird!)

Okay, now that I've told you why it's amazing, here are some actual photos:

Amazing isn't it? If you don't like foundation, but still want to cover up your redness and get an even tone all over your face, CCTM is the product for you (and the price is AWESOME).

Which brings me to lovely Kennedy and her makeover. I loved using CCTM and she later confirmed it lasted all day and she even worked out through it :) 

On Kennedy I focused alot on her eyes, because they're a beautiful blue. Check out these photos:

Sweet and delicate makeup on the beautiful Molly Dunn

Meeting a boss babe, in person

You know when you meet someone and you realize quite fast that they're going to take over the world? Well, that's how I feel meeting Molly Dunn. Molly owns and operates MollyPosh Luxury Esthetics on Beach Drive (St. Petersburg), and she's bringing women great quality services (for your eyebrows, eyelashes, cosmetic tattooing, facials etc). It was really fun learning about her work and her story while doing her makeup. 

Speaking of makeup, here's what we did for this beautiful (very bridal!) look. 

Before: Molly has really beautiful skin naturally, the only thing we both agreed on is that she had a little darker tone under her eyes

We started with the Normal to Dry skin Moisturizer that has Seneplex Complex in it (speeds up cell renewal by 23%!) - then I put the Silk Pore and Wrinkle minimizer on her areas with bigger pores (really, her skin doesn't need anything!), mostly as a preventative act.

Her favorite product by far was the Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer (Light) - it's suitable for all skin types and counteracts redness and sun/age spots while protecting from the sun! It makes all the difference!

I didn't put any foundation on Molly, but I did use our light concealer and white concealer for contouring, as well as Moca Java.

Using Pouty Pink for her blush (it's discreet and so sweet on most skin tones), I also used Pearlizer to highlight certain parts of her face. 

For her eyes, we used Moca Java, Pink Opal Shimmer and Pink Frost, plus Garnet under her eyes.   I'm loving Pink Opal Shimmer and Pink Frost, especially for a sweet and feminine look.   For Molly's eyebrows I used the Browsense in Dark, and she really liked it for brows that have been Microbladed.

We finished it off with Beige Champagne for her lips, and it was so lovely! 

Pink Champagne is a great color for most skin tones: natural and shimmery!

Thanks for letting me do a makeover, and make sure to visit Molly!
