Cruelty-Free Beauty Challenge: Day Six

I need a little more color to my skin. Since starting a strict skincare regimen, my skin has been softer and exfoliated but at the cost of any sort of tan. Because of this I need to apply self-tanner daily to add a bit of glow to my skin. I've been favoring the Tarte Brazilliance Marajuca Face & Body Self-Tanner* because it doesn't have that awful self-tanner smell, and also because the marajuca oil leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I love it!

I have a long day of work today, and after spending most of my time doing errands and household choress the past few days I wanted to spice up my makeup just a bit. Not much is different than my regular look, but I did have some fun using the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette to add a little more definition to my eyes. I gotta say, as someone who doesn't wear a ton of eyeshadow (and when I do it's always very basic colors) this palette is really all I need, and all the colors are simply perfection!

Another slight change I've been trying out is using the By Terry Touch Expert Advanced. I'm a big fan of By Terry's Touche Veloutee, which is sort of a concealer/highlighter hybrid, so I recently picked up a sample of this product which is more of a concealer with an illuminating factor. So far I've really been enjoying it! I will say that I absolutely picked up the wrong color in Vanilla Beige, but as far as the formula goes it's really nice underneath my eyes without accentuating any fine lines. It has the same perfume-y smell that the Touche Veloutee has, so that is one thing I would warn to anyone that has especially sensitive skin. I think I prefer the TV option for underneath my eyes, but I'm definitely going to keep the TEA option in my mind for a future purchase.

P.S. Sorry for the real up close and personal picture! I swear I'm wearing a tank top and am not naked, as it appears.
