Bringing the Pacific to Your Holiday

The Ocean & Pacific color palette has been my daily go-to since I received it, and this weekend it is a special price which is so exciting! I love pre-done palettes that take all of the guess work out of putting colors together, and these from Beautycounter are also special for their great value in having so many non-toxic makeup staples for such a great price point. While the colors are inspired by west coast living, they don’t require you to have the Pacific in your backyard to still be incredibly versatile.


So, today I wanted to share how complementary the colors of this palette are to holiday reds and greens. I actually used almost all of the shadows in combination, and they are very nicely pigmented so just a little dab of the darker ones make a big impact. As I have said before, the bronzer and blusher colors are my favorite!

I am not a makeup artist, so these colors intimidated my initially, but now I am completely obsessed. I highly recommend our Best of Brushes Set as the perfect complement, and again an amazing value at only $58 (valued at $124 purchased individually). I used all four brushes to create this look. My other makeup staple that I cannot go without is the Tint Skin Foundation, which I am currently wearing in the color Linen.


I literally never wore foundation prior to this product because I hate anything heavy on my face. This product was a game changer in my makeup overhaul when I converted to non-toxic beauty products and it is my number one recommendation for our makeup products. Lightweight and seamless, but also buildable to your coverage needs- it’s seriously the best discovery, and obvious as to why it is a best seller for Beautycounter.


Don’t forget that today is the final day to take advantage of the special pricing for the palette, and spend $150 to qualify for priority shipping and receive in time for the holiday! Oh, and my staple holiday earrings from Lisi Lerch are these perfect gold tassels which add the perfect pop against a holiday scarf! Note, these are pretty heavy of the ears, though, so I highly recommend getting a clip-on style in these if you are the least sensitive to that.


Hope everyone is getting excited for upcoming holiday celebrations with friends and family! It’s such a busy time of year, but also hopefully one filled with plenty of laughter and joy!
