Makeup Products & Tips for Rosacea

Makeup Products & Tips for Rosacea



This post is for all my babes dealing with rosacea!

In the summer time rosacea gets irritated with the natural oils and bacteria forming on the skin. Redness on the cheeks and forehead can be so frustrating and wearing the wrong products can make it worse. Makeup can instantly make your skin look better and instantly boost your mood! When choosing a makeup product to cover your rosacea it is important to follow the tips below >>

Clean Slate: Before you apply anything to the skin make sure your hands, beauty sponges, or brushes are clean. Bacteria that is collected through each use can cause irritation to the skin which will produce more redness to the skin. Using anti-bacteria tools or gentle motions with your fingers will be best way to apply products to the areas with rosacea.

#1 Base: Find a green primer, color corrector, or cream to visually cover your redness. Using a green base with UVA/UVB protection such as Nyx Cosmetics or Clinique "Redness Solutions" will prevent the skin from irritation and from using foundations that are heavy on the skin. Apply the green base to the irritated areas and set with a very small amount of sheer powder before applying foundation.

Keep It Light: Wearing to many products on the skin can cause your rosacea to flare up and prevent you from wearing makeup. Using a base with sunscreen in combination with a light consistency but full coverage foundation will give you the look you desire.

Mineralize Your Skin: If your rosacea gets easily irritated I recommend using a mineral powder like bareMinerals due the minimal chemicals used to great the product. Mineral powder will give you a very natural appearance and should be applied in patting motions for best coverage.

Try the three foundations below and primers for light full coverage:

Ready for Red+White+Blue Day

Ready for Red+White+Blue Day







The 4th of  July is one of my favorite holidays because it is one of the few times everyone stops working in my family to come together. BBQ, fireworks, drinks, laughs, and lots of love is expressed. The grill will be full in the morning and my stomach will be full at the end of the day. To prevent from feeling restricted I love to wear a flowy dress and cute comfortable shoes so that I can really enjoy my day.

Make sure to plan your outfit accordingly to your holiday plans. Nothing is worse than not being able to be comfortable and have fun.

Besides the food I love the big loud fireworks my honey bunches buys to light the sky. He always buys me the sparklers because he knows I am afraid to hold the big fireworks. :)

Be safe, have fun and Happy 4th of July! xoxo

Vacation Ready Shoulderless Dress

Vacation Ready Shoulderless Dress






Hey Lux Babe!

Summer time is around the corner. Do you have your perfect dress? If not I recommend this floral maxi dress it is perfect to wear on vacation, run errands, or just look cute around the house. The fabric is cotton so you don't have to worry about sweat showing up and ruining your look.

When looking for your perfect summer dress try to keep the following in mind:

1. Make sure it is comfortable. With vacation and the holiday season rolling around you may pick up a pound or 5.  Make sure you can still wear your dress after dinner or drinks.

2. Pick a fabric that is great for your body. The hotter months are approaching so opt in for a cotton based fabric. This will insure your skin is able to breath and/or you do not clog your pores which can lead to skin irritation.

3. Pick a color or print you can wear over and over. The best part of getting a summer dress is to be able to wear it over and over in different seasons. Don't waste your money on a dress you can only wear one time this season.

Three of the main reasons I bought this maxi dress are: 1.) It is shoulderless, 2.) It has an elastic waist, and 3.) It is pink!

The shoulderless trend is one of my favorites this summer and I plan on rocking it multiple times. I love how it instantly gives a romantic vibe to any look. Make sure to add a little liquid or powder illuminizer to the shoulder to achieve the "glowing from within" look when you reflect in the light.

The elastic waist is the cherry on top for this dress. I do not have a very defined waist so by having a dress that draws in the mid section will make it appear as if I have a waist.

I paired the maxi dress with nude pumps and a big over sized bag that I can totally imagine stuffing when I go on vacation.

8 Summer Office Beauty Bag Essentials

8 Summer Office Beauty Bag Essentials



The summer time is approaching very quickly and how many times have you been at work, broke a nail, had an unexpected meeting, or worse that time of the month came but you had no extra undies!

Ahhh the agony of that happening and not having what you need! We have all been there, if you haven't your in dying need of this post.

I don't know how many times I had a broken nail and couldn't fix it. Have you ever used a weird object just to file your nail so it would stop being annoying? No! I guess it is just me.

I put together this survival kit last year around October when mother nature came, my car was in the shop, and I could't get to the store in a hurry.

I had to call my honey bunches, he had to leave work, and bring me some undies (isn't he the best).

After that I said NOT AGAIN!

The rest of the items were added as I noticed they were needed over and over again.

No more being unprepared at work ladies make sure you have these office beauty bag essentials with you at all times.

*Please feel free to customize your beauty bag essentials.*


1. Nude Lipstick- If you work in an office setting you know a meeting can pop up at any moment. Never have bare lips again! Keep a nude lipstick in your beauty bag to be able to throw on at any moment, and it matches all your outfits! Win Win..

2. Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes- If you have an hour lunch break getting a mini workout in is perfect! It helps release stress accumulated throughout the day and raises your endorphin's (makes you happy and stress free). Keeping a mini package of makeup remover wipes will help clean your face so there are no unexpected zits popping up! Also, if you sweat easily in the bra area use a wipe to freshen up. *Keep them turned over to contain moisture on the top wipes*

3. Ponytail holder- Having an unexpected bad hair day? Keep a few ponytail holders in your bag to do a quick hair change. I love the hair ties that don't leave an indentation in the hair and do not slide out of place.

4. Nail Clipper- I love using nail clippers for more than just clipping my nails at work. Try using them for clipping away stubborn cuticles, stray threading on clothes or sever split ends until you can get to your hairstylist.

5. Nail File- I think this one we all know how to use. :)

6. Makeup Mist & Set- I can't go out the house without my ELF Mist & Set spray. I have one in my purse, gym bag, and office beauty bag. In the summer time you must have a mist to freshen your face. I love this one because it doesn't ruin your makeup or mascara. Oh did I mention it is only $3 bucks!

7. Lotion- Got to have it, no one likes to be ashy!

8. Underwear- If you work 8-10 hours a day always be prepared for mother nature. Keep an extra pair of underwear at work at all times with your desired pads or tampons. Who says "that time of the month" underwear has to be boring? Brighten your day with a cute print on your undies.

What are your must haves in your beauty bag? Let us know in the private FaceBook Group.

Until next time Be Unique, Be You and stay Lux...

Coral Shorts Tuxedo + Feathered Fringe Heels

Coral Shorts Tuxedo + Feathered Fringe Heels








When I saw this coral shorts tuxedo online at JCPenny I knew I needed it in my collection! One thing I love about a suit (tuxedo) is that you can mix and match it with so many outfits in your closet.

I own just about every color suit so adding a coral suit for the summer just made sense. Would you believe me if I told you both pieces only cost me $60! Yes, a super lux steal from JCPenny! (right now they are giving an additional 30% off) I decided to pair my favorite tassel shoes and victorian style blouse to complete the look. Since the suit was such a powerful color I decided to keep my other pieces nude and white.

I would definitely wear this suit to a summer event such as a wedding or graduation. Since the shorts do not come to the knee I would not recommend wearing it in the workplace. Pair the jacket with a nice pair of dress pants for a pop of color or with jeans for a high/low look.

This tuxedo comes in sizes xs-3x (jacket) and 2-18 (shorts) so its perfect for all sizes and shapes. I do recommend trying the shorts on if you have bigger thighs I found them to be tight in that area so I ordered a size up.

Until next time stay Lux!
