Happy Tuesday guys. So you all know that I don’t post much #makeup on my feed because my philosophy is #skinfirst and, to be honest, most days I’m just too lazy But one of my 2018 resolutions was to spend more time on #selfcare and feeling pretty. I will say that makeup in my 40’s is definitely different than in my 20’s so when @kjaerweis reached out, I jumped at the chance to work with this luxurious brand. I love their “simple not plain” approach to color plus their ingredients are fab. The brand is mostly organic and only uses the highest quality, good for your skin ingredients like Gardenia Florida extract which helps fight free radicals & protects and Spilanthes Acmella Flower extract that helps relax muscles, reducing lines and boosts collagen. This ingredient is often called nature’s botox. I’m afraid of needles so I’ll just stick to natural ways of delaying aging .
I ordered the cream foundation in “lightness” which matches my pale skin perfectly. I also got the radiance highlighter which adds the perfect amount of sheen without looking glittery. My favorite is their newest product, the lip gloss in treasure, a pale coral nude. This gloss is very hydrating, not sticky/tacky and looks gorgeous. I also love the vanilla scent Kjaer Weis is definitely a more expensive brand but the quality speaks for itself. I love that most of their products come in refills so you re-use the gorgeous cases which are stunning! No joke guys these cases are heavy and sturdy!
A special thanks to #kjaerweis & @levertbeauty for this gracious gift #MyLocalKW .
Would you guy like a #grwm using these products? .
Aside from the Pat McGrath palette, Kjaer Weis has some of the most luxe packaging I’ve ever felt and seen. This is their lipgloss in Fascination, a pretty soft sheer pink that brightens your face without looking overdone. It made me realize that I need more pink-ish and nude lipglosses in my life when I saw how pretty it looked. My go-to colors are usually reds and berry tone lipsticks so it was nice to change it up. I love that it doesn’t feel sticky and heavy on the lips like some lipglosses I’ve tried, and that it has very subtle sweet scent. Just like the lipgloss, their Highlighter in Ravishing is also very natural looking; it’s smooth and silky to the touch and easily blends into the skin. I’ve been wearing it on the high points of my face and as an eyeshadow too. I LOVE that the packaging for the highlighter comes with a mirror; it was such a lovely surprise considering it’s size. Some palettes out there don’t bother putting a mirror so I always get excited when I see one. Lol Both of these products are refillable, so you could switch out the highlighter to one of their cream blushes if you want to. I look forward to discovering more of their products in the future like their lip tints, shadows, blushes, etc. I will probably have to order it online because I’m from a small town and the closest retailer is the Forty Five Ten boutique in Houston, so if you’re from there or just visiting check them out!
Not a paid post but I was sent these products in exchange for a review. #mylocalkw#kjaerweis#makeup#luxurymakeup#greenbeauty#naturalmakeup#makeup#packaging#myvanity

Let’s talk about beauty. Here’s the thing: I don’t think it always starts from the inside out. I know this all too well. I’ll be dragging through my day, stuck on some creative project, feeling low and uninspired, dreading my next meeting, wondering if this all even matters. Wait. This is not my style. This is not me. So I’ll look around and low and behold; the laundry has piled up, the dishes are not clean and I’m still in…sweatpants. I mean, I’m just going to the gym in a couple hours. Who cares, right? Wrong. In order for me to thrive off of my day, enjoy my creative project and look forward to my next meeting, I have to enhance the beauty of everything around me, including my own exterior. As the master of my own schedule, I’ve started rearranging my day so that the gym starts first, the shower and swipe of @kjaerweiss lip tint next. It has improved my sense of self immensely. It prepares me for what’s to come within my day, because as we all know...a lot’s to come. @fortyfiveten#MyLocalKW#sponsor#ad#personalgrowth#selflove#beautyjunkie
Seriously FEELIN’ myself on this #internationalwomensday and loving the new @kjaerweis lip gloss in “Treasure”! I don’t usually wear much makeup but this is my normal look: mascara, Kjaer Weis face oil, cream highlighter and something on my lips. If you’re in Nash, the local spot to snag this incredible natural beauty brand is @lemon_laine which happens to be where I’m going to party tonight to celebrate today . Swipe to see my glowy selfies and also my husb photo-bombing my attempts #mylocalkw#kjaerweis#lemonwomen#naturalbeauty#momlife#ad
On this International Women’s Day, I would love to share with you this very lovely brand, #kjaerweis. They just launched their line of seriously beautiful, elegant lip glosses, but I admire KW because they were founded on the principle that all women deserve the feeling of putting the best ingredients on their skin. They also started the #mylocalKW campaign to celebrate female creators like myself to inspire women to stay true to their own style and talents.
A few days ago, I was about to go on a long outdoor walk when I felt the need to try this lip gloss. My boyfriend said “yeah, gotta get dolled up for the outside!” I couldn’t help myself, though. I was so pleasantly shocked when I put it on, that I exclaimed, “IT’S BEAUTIFUL”. The shade they sent me is called fascination, which is a stunning, glossy, bright, mauve-coral color. I also adore the packaging, it’s sleek, stylish, and ageless, just like their campaigns. Kjær Weis is a beauty brand for all women, and I’m very interested in trying all the other eco-friendly goodies they have to offer. @kjaerweis@capbeautydaily
Feeling glossy over here (& not sticky) I think I’ve found my new favorite natural makeup line @kjaerweis & glad I’ll be able to try it all out & pick it up at my favorite local natural beauty shop @lemon_laine#MyLocalKW
Hands down, the most luxurious organic makeup I’ve ever seen or used! I knew this would be one of a kind, as I've never seen anything like it before. It felt so rich when I held it, I felt overwhelmed with beauty, like I was holding a beautiful piece of jewelry. Everything that was created you can tell it was made with an artistic vision and wanted to stand out from the rest. From the red paper textured design of the box, to the heavy weight of the metal refillable system, (so you don't have to keep repurchasing) to how smoothly it slides open and closes. Aside from the exquisite details of the packaging, the quality of these products are outstanding. It delivers pigment and it blends right into the skin looking natural and effortless. Every batch of makeup is inspected by hand and remains free of parabens, silicones, petrochemicals emulsifiers and synthetic fragrances. They're all made in Italy, and almost all of the products have been Certified Natural or Certified Organic by the stringent standards of the country’s certification body, the Controllo e Certificazione Prodotti Biologici. Highlighter in Ravishing $56.00
Lip Pencil in Mauve
These beauties were kindly sent to me by @capbeautydaily and I'm so thankful! #MyLocalKW
I’m supposed to post about my work for #MyLocalKW but I’m on a break from creating to un-create. I’m finding silence, stillness and emptiness in myself in order to fully appreciate the noise, hustle and bustle that is life. But here’s me wearing @kjaerweis’ organic lip tint available at @thedetoxmarket cuz it’s actually fire and I don’t want to upset my manager by not posting about it lol
Two things I love: green beauty products and all things Danish inspired. In 2014 I overhauled my life, diet and the products to help reclaim my health. I committed to using only green and non-toxic products in my home and personal care routine. @kjaerweis is one of my favorite green beauty brands because it’s so luxe and works so well. I don’t wear a lot of makeup but when I do, this highlighter and lip tint is so amazing and makes me feel so good!! One of my favorite local spots @sagecleanbeauty carries @kjaerweis if you haven’t been, you have to check it out!! #mylocalkw
