Vibing Off of that Pantone, Living Coral

I work in the spa and salon industry so I live in black, which is the industry standard for dress code.  Naturally that gets boring, so I've learned to get excited about accessories and cosmetics that pack a punch so I can live my life in color, as intended!

Every year Pantone releases the color of the year, and I was school-girl giddy when I saw that it was Living Coral for 2019!  I know I'm in good company here, so if you too are loving this bright coral, then follow me through my favorite accessories, skincare and cosmetics that will help you glow and stay on trend!

Eminence Organics Age Corrective Starter Set

I’ve been using Eminence Organics as my only skincare product for over 10 years. It’s a Hungarian line that offers clean skincare with high-performance ingredients so you get results! The entire Age Corrective Collection is chock full of plant stem cell technology and in return it is anti-aging and beyond. If you’ve ever wanted to give this line a try then one of the best places to start is with a starter set where you get about a month worth of product to try before you buy the full sized versions. You will never see water as a number one ingredient which means you are getting pure fruit and botanical ingredients. Kind of like a raw food diet for your face! If anti-aging results didn’t sell you then you should also know that Eminence uses recyclable packaging, plants a tree for every product sold and is a certified B Corp. I pinky promise that you will love just about every product this company offers!

Eminence Organics Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate

I’m a mom of 2 young boys and while I am a skincare junkie I need some of my products to do the work for me. Enter the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate! This fruity serum can be applied daily to resurface skin and refine pores. Mangosteen is a superfruit that promotes radiance while protecting against environmental stressors. This complex has Red Clover Flower which helps to refine pores which we all love! Truly the best darn part of this serum is the lactic acid that gently resurfaces your skin while you sleep so you wake up bright and glowing!

Beautycounter Satin Powder Blush

This little blush packs a powerful pigment punch and I like it! I used to be a die hard Nars Orgasm wearer but when I dropped dirty products from my makeup bag I had a big gaping hole (in my heart and from lack of peachy pigments). I was super excited when I found this clean swap that delivers the same shimmery peachy-pink flush to my cheeks without harmful things like asbestos, parabens or synthetic dyes. This Satin Powder blush by Beautycounter comes in 7 shades that are all lovable but if you are looking for that Nars clean swap then go with the shade Nectar. You won’t regret it!

Jane Iredale Quad Bronzer Refill

I’ve been using Jane Iredale for 20 years and I can tell you they offer great foundation, powder and cheek options. They are a staple in my makeup bag and salon. I really love this Peaches + Cream Quad Bronzer because of it’s versatility and beautiful color range. You can use all four colors together for a sweep of color on the cheeks or individually as eye shadows. The top two shades make a great highlighter while the bottom two can be used for highlighting. This mineral makeup is clean and the price and versatility make it a staple for any makeup bag!

Beautycounter Classic Velvet Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is my go-to shadow palette right now! I don’t just love it for the sundrenched shades but also for the fact that it’s clean AF. Talc is found in most powders which is fine but it’s asbestos that’s typically not lurking too far behind. Beautycounter does third party testing to ensure that it’s product is clean starting at it’s sourcing. I love that piece of mind! I really dig this palette because it has a good mix of sparkle, matte and shimmer so its so versatile for all ages! If paired with an eye primer then you will get powerful pigments that go the distance and that is something to get excited about!

Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet

I’m a sucker for a bright lippie and this one has my heart forever because it’s clean (devoid of harmful ingredients), hydrating and comes in 7 different matte shades. Of my favorite shades, is this orange-red which totally plays well with the Pantone color of the year Living Coral. Clean beauty products will not boast about 24 hours of wear but I am happy with the longevity I get with this lippie. It applies so smoothly that you don’t even need to use lip liner!

I'm With The Band Velvet Turbans

If I could live in these headbands I would. Just kidding I DO live in them! I love a good accessory that sticks out from the bunch. These turban headbands are unique and pair well with jeans and a sweater or a dress. So versatile! The best part is the selection of colors. Let’s just say I have one for every day of the week if a week had 10 days in it! I love all the colors but highly recommend Burnt Sienna which complements coral any day!

Sic Rosegold Glitter Waterbottle

Technically not coral but coral lives in water and this is a water bottle so let’s go with it! If I have to drink water then it’s going to need to be cold (always), come in a container that can be dropped (repeatedly) and also be stylish! Enter SIC metal bottles. Non-toxic container keeps my water pure and body hydrated. Swear by this product!

Athleta Contender Laser Cut 7/8 Leggings

These leggings are the most comfortable and flattering leggings around! You can’t blame a girl for wanting to look good while she sweats right?! These are heavy weave compression for all the right places, squat proof and my favorite part is all the pretty colors and the side pocket. I have these in 5 colors. Kind of obsessed!
