This month I’m bringing you two amazing new makeup lines, plus adorable bags to store it all in!
I spend a lot of time researching and experimenting with new products, and NudeStix is my new fave beauty line.
NudeStix is a relatively new line that’s clean, vegan, cruelty-free and all good! NudeStix are simple makeup crayons for the face, eyes, lips, and cheeks. They make it fast and easy to create a ‘no-makeup’ look for perfection in an instant!
I’ve been using NudeStix on my clients, and they love them. They’re great for all ages and skin types, and give you a dewy, fresh-looking finish.
The company’s founders say NudeStix is all about embracing the beautiful in each of us. They believe the natural look works well for every face, every age, every skin tone, and when it comes to makeup, a little goes a long way.
Tinted Moisturizer and Sunscreen – Nudescreen Daily Mineral Veil SPF 30 Moisturizer gives you a fresh glow and SPF protection. It’s available in 4 shades and 1 no-color option.
Blush, Eyes & Lips – I love the Nudies Blush Stick in Matte. Try using it on your eyes, cheeks and lips for coordinated look. The easy-to-use stick blends out easily with the attached brush, and it lasts all day! It’s available in 12 beautiful shades.
Nudies Bloom Stick – This gives you a dewy, perfect glow that adds sheen and brightness to your look. It’s available in 8 shades.
Mascara – NudeStix Splashproof vegan, waterproof mascara lasts all day whether you’re skiing, swimming, golfing, or exercising.
Brows – NudeStix Stylus Eyebrow Pencil and Gel give you two-in-one brow color and setting gel to keep your brows looking set and fresh all day. They’re available in 4 shades.
And…I just found an amazing new cruelty-free product line for our delicate lips – Ogee Luxury Organics Tinted Sculpted Lip Oil! These are a solid blend of organic cold-pressed Jojoba oil and butters that melt instantly on your lips to moisturize and nourish, and they come in gorgeous colors!
Whether you’re heading north to ski or south to warmer weather, you can pack your NudeStix in a travel bag and go! I like the Baggallini clear travel pouch set. They come in three sizes and they’re great for carrying your skincare, makeup and brushes.
