Hynt Beauty Makeup Review

IMG_7252-2

I recently found out that Hynt Beauty is the new re-brand of Christopher Drummond! Make’s TOTAL sense – seeing as how I am obsessed with their (famous) concealer and other great products. Here is a little overview of how Hynt came to be, and what it stands for.

Hynt was born through Co-Founder Meryl Marshall s need and passion to find makeup and skincare products that offered her the assurance and confidence that whatever she was putting on her skin was safe, non-irritable and carcinogen-free. (My kinda gal!)

Meryl had recently conquered breast cancer, and so she took great care in educating herself on the product labels and on each of the ingredients formulated into her everyday beauty products. Quickly, her search for skin-healthy but still luxurious beauty essentials turned into an elusive hunt.

To her disappointment, Meryl found that other skin-healthy lines failed to fulfill her desire to use luxuriously textured, richly pigmented, and smartly packaged products. Such aesthetic touches are essential to how a woman feels each time she applies her coveted makeup essentials — magical, beautiful, special.

Meryl decided to create her own cosmetics line using state-of-the-art natural formulations. Now women who prioritize the purity and health of their skin have a glamorous, fun and trust-worthy beauty collection that they can wholeheartedly enjoy every day at any moment.

The Disappearing Act of Jane Iredale

Left – Disappear Concealer / Right – Circle\Delete Concealer

 

I like my concealers just like the next girl…I mean, you gotta hide those red/blueish circles sometimes, amirite ladies? Anyways, I have been on the hunt for an awesome organic, non-toxic under-eye concealer and just a regular all-over concealer. I’ve found it! Jane Iredale has done it again, a tried, tested and true brand that is respected by many and it contains great ingredients!

 

Jane’s Circle\Delete is amazing you guys! I am shade #1 and this concealer completely neutralizes redness along with brightens up the face. Can’t you tell?

I love it for little areas one my face that need brightening too! (Forehead, bridge of nose, etc.) I’m sure you’re wondering why there are two different shades in there. Well, it is an eye conditioner and concealer in one and there are two shades so that you can mix them together and achieve the correct colour for your under-eye area. Some women like to really brighten it up, some like to just hide and do a wee bit of brightening. This lets you achieve both! Which I love.

 

The concealer contains Moringa butter and avocado oil, both high in vitamins A, C, D and E.  Here’s a lil glimpse into what these wonderful ingredients do.

  • Moringa Seed Oil: moisturizes and conditions skin, as well as provides antioxidant protection. Soothes and calms.
  • Laminaria Ochroleuca: Extract: Repairs UV damage. Moisturizes. Provides bacterial protection.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract: Calms. Protects. (Potent antioxidant)

Can’t forget the Disappear Concealer!

  • A matte, oil-free, opaque concealer that camouflages distractions such as acne, scars, tattoos, veins and port wine stains (not sure about this one, haha) and contains ingredients that may help to clear blemishes.
  • State-of-the-art liposome formula contains so much pigment that two layers will cover almost everything, including black tattoos.
  • Provides an opaque finish.

 

It’s key ingredients being:

  • Superoxide Dismutase: Protects.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract: Calms. Protects. Provides bacterial protection.
  • Vitamin C: Helps to reverse UV damage. Protects.

Hello hello again!

 

Here’s a fun little playlist for your Tuesday evening! You can jam to it while you check out my latest Instagram post for the Bridal Makeup I did today!

 

 

So, here are a couple of photos of the makeup I did on my client! Also, the rundown of everything I did below!

Primer/foundation: Laura Mercier Radiance Primer.

Makeup Forever HD Foundation.

Concealer (Under-eye): Benefit Erase Paste Brightening Concealer in fair.

Brows: Benefit Gimme Me Brow in medium/deep.

Eyes: (Primer) NARS “Pro Prime” Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

Shadow: I did a soft winged eyeliner, (mix of black liquid liner and brown pencil smudged out a bit, on the bottom lash line as well) with a couple of different brown/neutral shimmery eyeshadows on the lids. I tight-lined with a black eye pencil, and lined the waterline with the same brown pencil used on upper and lower lash line.

In the tear ducts and below the waterline along the brown pencil, I put a Japanese gel – intensely silvery/glittery – liner. I can’t remember the brand. I also put a bit of The Balm Mary Lou Manizer in the tear ducts to brighten it even more.

Cheeks: Lightly contoured with Mac Harmony (in their blushes). On apples of cheeks, I applied Mac’s Modern Mandarin to create a rosy, flush cheek.

Highlight: The Balm Mary Lou Manizer on bridge and ball of nose, cheekbones, lightly on the temples and cupids bow (above the lip line). I also applied some of the highlighter to the highest point of her eyelid to bounce off light and glow even more.

Eyelashes: No falsies here – it’s all in the primer! Clinique Lash Building Primer. Seriously, it’s amazing.

The mascara we used is the brides own from Japan! The ever amazing Shiseido Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister in black.

Lips: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight, with a light top coat of Mac’s Dazzleglass in Date Night.

And there you have it! That’s the look. If I missed something, or you have a question about something specific, let me know!

Enjoy the tunes! xo
