The Best Highlighter Makeup - How To Make Your Skin Glow with Jolie Beauty

Hi There..... Do you like to make your skin glow? Do you like to use highlighter makeup? Are you going to celebrate Christmas and New Year soon? 

Sooo many questions. I suppose most of you are going to celebrate. 😃

Unlike most years, we are celebrating Christmas with just the two of us. Ordinarily, we would celebrate with our children, but the government voted against it. Thank you so very much for that. 😛

Maybe I should just sing a Christmas Carol to get us in the mood for celebrating, put on some make-up with eyeshadow and some highlighter. Haha, I can picture my husband’s face if I do that. He would think I am losing my mind, but you have to own one to lose one. 😂

I have always been a fan of Christmas songs though, not sure why, but I always loved singing them. When I was in the choir about 10 years ago, we used to practice them before Christmas to sing at parties or masses. 😊

That reminds me of the time we were singing in the mass of the elderly home. We had been singing happily for about half an hour when there was a loud bang. You can never guess what happened. 😏

A resident seemed to have fallen asleep, and the book on her lap fell to the ground. It gave us quite a scare and everyone was wide awake again. At least they were listening again now. Nothing is as bad as performing when nobody listens. Or maybe there is one thing worse. Not being allowed to perform because of a stupid virus. 😁

I will be glad when all this is behind us. Who knows, maybe in 10 years’ time we will look back and wish we could press pause again. Or for all I know, you may wish you could still have time to read my blog posts and all my stories. 

I sometimes wonder if I will still be able to think of stories, or perhaps I might start telling the old ones again because I forgot that I already told them to you. If that happens, you just have to let me know. 😂

The end of another story and time for some more jolly matters. Or maybe I should say Jolie. What? Have you never heard of Jolie Beauty? Oh my, you have got to be kidding me. 😨

Haha, now I was kidding you because I hadn’t heard about them before, but I am so glad that I discovered this brand. They have the most amazing highlighter makeup. First, let me tell you a bit more about them. 😍

This Brand from the UK is the brainchild of a team of experienced makeup artists, and they have worked with some renowned Beauty Brands such as Mac, Clinique, Sephora,... They believe that make-up artists should have the choice to pick both unique and high performing products. 😊

Their experience has driven them to design and create fun, cute, and professional products that are affordable for any artist, aspiring artist, or make-up lover. The team tests and trials each product countless times to make sure that you get the product you love. 😍

Their brush sets are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. They say that synthetic products can lead to even better results. 

They design and develop their lashes in-house without the use of mink or animal products. They use synthetic silk polymer to make you enjoy voluminous lashes guilt-free. 

I really love it when a brand stands up against animal cruelty and I bet you do too. Nope, I am definitely not joking around this time. 😍

And I was more than happy that they sent me this gorgeous second skin powder highlighter makeup, in return for my honest opinion. A little skin glow hurt no one, right? 

What does their website say about these highlighters? They provide a natural yet eye-catching skin glow. The highlighter can be built up for a more intense look, or worn more subtly for daily make-up. The second skin powder highlighter avoids creating a glittery finish. The smoothing formula glides over any texture on the skin. Enhancing the smoothness of the skin underneath. 

The powders have been formulated to create a buildable, sheer glow that lasts all day long. Second skin highlighters perform perfectly on top of all cream or powder foundation bases. Or you can use it on your bare skin if you prefer. 

You may be curious to know what I thought about these highlighters. That's a bit of a problem because I still haven't decided which of those two I love the most. Then again, I don't really need to choose because I now have them both. I was a bit anxious at first because I didn't know if I would get it right. Then I got in an email from Jolie Beauty with a link to their YouTube channel. 

Such a great channel with such a simple explanation on how to use their make-up. You really are going to have to check it out. 

And here is my look after using the highlighters. I only used them on my cheekbones, but you can put them on your nose, your forehead, your chin or even in your cleavage.

On my left cheek (on the right if you look at the picture) I used the Saintly shade. It gives you a really fresh glow.

On my right cheek, I used the Dreaming shade. It is a little darker, but just as pretty if you ask me. And they both give you an amazing but subtle glow. 

Can you see the difference? One thing is for sure: when the Coronavirus is under control and I can get back to performing with my band, I am going to use one of these highlighters. Maybe you can choose for me. Let me know in the comments which one you like best. 

Jolie Beauty has a lot more where this came from. 

They have biodegradable festival glitter.

They have a 24 shade Glitter Palette 

They also have a luxury gift bundle

Those are just a few examples of the things you can find on their website. They are based in the UK but they ship internationally to many destinations so don't let me hold you one minute longer.

Hope you like my blog..... Until next time..... Have a nice day

Review about the JouwBox 11 - Face Cleanser and Eye Cream for Dark Circles

Hi There..... Do you like natural health products? Would you like to know more about a Face Cleanser? Or maybe about an Eye Cream for dark circles?

Have you been clinging to your screen and waiting for my next review on the natural products from my JouwBox? I know, I am sorry to have kept you waiting so long. 😏

If you are waiting, time can pass by really slow. I have done my share of waiting in my life, but some of it is my fault. I have the unpleasant habit of always wanting to be early for an appointment. 😯

The problem was when I was young the cell phone hadn’t been invented yet. Now if I am too early, I can always do some liking on my Instagram or play a game. You can never do too much on your Instagram if you want to get likes you have to give likes. I would hate it if I kept giving someone likes and they would not return any. 😈

Unless it’s some hopeless guy looking for love. I have learned not to return those likes anymore because they always want more. I don’t get it Instagram is no dating app as far as I know, and I am not looking for love just likes and comments. 😂

I must admit I learned the hard way. Some guy made a profile named Keanu Reeves. He is one of my favorite actors, so I responded when he sent me a private message. He told me he had no friends in actual life that he could talk to, so I kinda felt sorry for him. 😢

It was really exciting thinking I was really talking to the great actor himself. At least that’s what I thought until after a few days of chatting he asked me to help him. He said he needed my help for some kind of charity. Not that I am against charity, but I thought it weird that someone like him would have to pursue people to give to a good cause. 😲

That made me suspicious, but what made it even more suspicious was when he suggested that I talk to a woman who was in charge of it all. I blocked him, but he keeps following me with new Keanu Reeves’ accounts. The only difference is that I don’t respond anymore. By the way, Keanu, if you are reading this so sorry, I blocked you. 😄

Let's get round to some more important things like the face cleanser and eye cream for dark circles from my Jouwbox that I was telling you about.

First up today is the Eye Cream from Mudmasky. What does their website say about this eye cream?

Superfood for your under-eye bags. This Serum-infused Eye Mask is specifically formulated for the thin and sensitive skin under your eyes. It contains a super-high level of natural antioxidants.

It improves the elasticity of the skin after 4 – 7 uses. By improving elasticity your skin under your eyes looks visibly less dark and less sunken. Eventually – after 7 – 12 uses – fine lines around the eyes are visibly smoothed.

Your skin under your eyes needs special attention. Most people assume that skin is skin and don’t understand why the skin in certain areas seems to be more sensitive than skin in other areas. The area under the eyes is a good example of skin that often behaves differently than the skin elsewhere on your body. That’s because, like the surface of a drum, it covers a large hollow area underneath. If the skin is not particularly thick, it can sag, wrinkle, turn dark, and generally betray everything from your age to how much sleep you’re getting. This type of special skin requires special treatment, that’s why MUDMASKY has created the first-ever Serum-Infused Eye Mask.

I kept you waiting long enough. Now it's time you learn the truth about this eye mask. I have used it 3 times already and noticed a lit less puffiness already. It looks a bit like mud, and it feels a bit grainy too, but it doesn't hurt when you put it on. I cleaned my face first and left it on for 8 minutes. After a few minutes, you feel that it's working. After you wash off the product, you get a cold sensation under your eyes. 

We also received a little extra from Mudmasky. A Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask. What more could a woman ask for.

The second one for today is the Super Foodies Face Cleansing bar from Oolaboo. What does their website say about this Face Cleansing bar?

An environmentally conscious, creamy, and mild facial cleanser for normal to dry skin types. Because we make it with coconut oil and vitamin E, a natural constituent of our skin, it provides important antioxidant properties to help protect your skin from pollution and other external stressors that can damage your skin. If you're a coconut lover, this bar will give your skin the cleanse it needs without affecting its protective moisture barrier, while being 100% soap-free!

0% silicone, 0% plastic, 100% handcrafted, 100% vegan, 100% natural ingredients

A new zero-waste beauty innovation: a compact and light size reduces carbon footprints.
It takes up less transport space than conventional bottles.
It is also suitable for use on the body, making it even more economical and eco-effective.
Easy to take with you on a trip, no liquid and no leaking bottles.
A handcrafted blend of natural ingredients and a distinguished scent takes it to a new level of luxury at an affordable price.

I was really excited to try out this one because I love the scent of coconut. I didn't really get that much coconut scent from washing my face with it, but it was a very pleasant scent. It foams nicely, did not irritate my skin, and my face felt nice and soft afterward. Another great product from this Jouwbox. 

I am really loving all those natural health products more and more each day. 

If you are curious to know more about what was in it, all you have to do is read my 2 previous blog posts about this box. 

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day
