Cruelty-Free Beauty Challenge: Day Four

Today's routine was pretty minimal. In fact, it's so minimal I chose not to even wear tinted moisturizer or concealer (gasp!). I have a ton of errands and chores to do around the house today, so I really have no need for a full face of makeup. In lieu of a tinted moisturizer, I combined a little drop of The Body Shop's Honey Bronzing Gel with my Trader Joe's Face Moisturizer to add just a hint of color to my skin.

I finished off my look with some mascara, lip gloss and blush and I was done! It's a super simple look, and perfect for just running out to the grocery store and back. As the weather gets hotter this summer, I've found myself doing simple looks like this more and more because it's just so low-maintenance while still adding a hint of a summer glow.

I'm fairly self-conscious of letting my dark circles roam free without their usual covering of concealer, but on days like today I just can't bring myself to care! Instead of slathering on concealer, I've been using a little bit of the (amazing) Natura Bisse The Cure Sheer Eye which is a very slightly tinted eye cream that hydrates, illuminates and helps fight dark circles/puffiness/fine lines and so on and so on. It is truly a gem, and I will be using the little sample packet I have until the very last drop because I am head over heels in love! I might treat myself to the full size for my birthday (because it is hella expensive) because I don't want to live a day without this skincare gem.
