With warmer weather on the horizon, I've been on the hunt for products that aid in achieving a light, glowing complexion for Spring/Summer.

You can imagine my excitement when I received some of tarte's Rainforest of the Sea products to try out. First off, how adorable is the packaging? It's definitely 'gram worthy in and of itself.  The entire collection is formulated with tarte's Rainforest of the Sea complex, a hypoallergenic formula that helps restore and brighten skin for a soft, radiant finish. All of their products are also formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate and gluten aka none of that junk!

I like to keep my makeup fairly natural looking. My daily look consists of a light foundation, bronzer, blush, mascara, and a light lip colour. (This daily look transforms into an evening look with some eyeshadow, liner, and a bold lipstick.) 

I'm always hesitant to purchase eyeshadow palettes as most tend to have at least one colour that I would never wear. I love how the Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette are all wearable, everyday shades. For years the Naked Palette had been my go-to, but now its a toss up... I'm thinking I'll just rotate. They are super pigmented, creamy, blendable, non creasing, and don't have a lot of fall out. 

If you talk to any of my friends, they all know my struggle with eyeliner making its way up to my brow bone. I'm not quite sure if its the shape of my eye, but it deters me from wearing it on the regular.  I was blown away with the Rainforest of the Sea So Fine Micro Liner - it magically never strayed and loved how fine the tip was - it made for a super easy application. 

In order to achieve glowing skin, I'm all about strobing. I love placing highlighter on my cheekbones, brow bone, nose, cupids bow, and chin. The Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette is in a word, perfection. (TBH, I have worn it every single day since I got it.) The colours are absolutely beautiful, it's not too shimmery and it gives the face that natural glow. The Rainforest of the Sea Highlighter Brush is the perfect compliment to it - its so light and airy and the smaller brush on the opposite side is perfect for highlighting the nose, cupids bow and brow bone.

I have very dry skin, and it seems that no matter how much I hydrate, matte lipsticks tend to look quite "chalky" on my lips. These lipsticks are matte, but don't dry your lips out like many other brands I have tried. They are soft, hydrating, and creamy, with just a hint of shine. I love applying the  Rainforest of the Sea Lipsaver Treatment Primer before I apply the lipstick as a "primer" to smooth the lips.

Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue lip balms are my new go-to's - I absolutely ADORE them! As someone that rocks a natural look on the regular, I couldn't ask for a better lip product. They are moisturizing, add just a hint of colour, and aren't sticky! (does anyone else have a problem with your hair getting stuck to your lips, or perhaps the odd bug with those "sticky" ones? I hope I am not alone on this) I highly recommend these beauties.

Um, how cute is this makeup bag? It makes me smile every time I wake up in the morning.

For me, brushes make or break my MU look. I love to invest in high quality brushes that stand the test of time. These brushes from taste's Rainforest collection not only do the job, but are adorable at the same time.

No matter how much I moisturize my face, I tend to always have dry patches. Needless to say, I was really excited to try this foundation out. Because its water-based, its extremely hydrating and gives such a natural finish. It doesn't cake where my dry spots are, and its build-able depending on the coverage you're going for. As someone that suffers with dry skin (even in the warmer months!) this foundation was a life-changing discovery.

My face is very sensitive, so I have to be careful on what products I use. This cleansing wash is gentle  enough for my face but removes makeup easily.
