winter non toxic makeup look

I had so much fun at a Bridal Shower Brunch this past weekend! It was finally a little chilly, so I got to throw on my favorite fur vest over a maxi dress!

Concealer: Vapour Illusionist Concealer (I wear 015)

Illuminating Cream: From the Instant Awakening Trio

Highlighter: RMS Luminizer in Champagne Rose
