My Nightly Skincare Routine Plus A Giveaway


Well, my friends, things have been a little complicated at Polarbelle HQ lately!!  During this extended illness, my computer kinda died as well as my back up computer.  I've been unable to load and edit pictures for nearly two months!!!  I just received a new computer today and am trying to get the bugs out.  Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing soon.

In the meantime, I've filmed my nighttime skincare routine and have it here for you today as well as an associated giveaway.  Due to size and weight, the giveaway is restricted to US and Canadian shipping addresses only.   Some of the items I use are great for everyone for age defensive skincare and a few are formulated especially for over 40 skin.  If you like sport healthy glowy skin, this routine could be for you.

I'm going to be covering my daytime routine, favorite masks and treatments, and facial oils in other videos and blog posts.

Halloween Week Makeup Look Extragavanza

In the week leading up to and including Halloween, I was challenged to create some unique makeup looks.  My initial inspiration came from a package I received via Buxom Cosmetics.  I shared all the looks on Instagram but I thought I'd bring to you all the fun that I had.  I haven't done anything Halloween-ish beside handing out candy since I was 14.  This all really was fun.

My first look was a 2017 take on 80's Madonna in the Like A Virgin video.  I may have sang and danced my way through Snapchat and IG stories that night, rumor has it...oh wait, that's an Adele song!


I couldn't find a picture that wasn't all fuzzy from the video but below is from the same time frame:


Products Used:
Eyes are @viseart Neutral Mattes
@buxomcosmetics Call Me black liner   **pr
#buxomcosmetics Big Tease mascara to plump lashes and a little Buxom waterproof to make them stay put.  **pr
#Madonna brows and mole are @benefitcosmetics Goof Proof brown pencil and Precisely My Brow, 4 and 3. .
Lips are #Buxom Call Me eye liner, . Buxom Code Red Plumping Lip Liner, (these pencils are SO my jam!)
. Buxom Bold Gel Lipstick in Red Inferno, (also my jam for lipsticks)  **pr
.
Face: @nyxcosmetics Angel Veil primer for smoothing
@fentybeauty Pro Filt'r Foundation
@katvondbeauty Lock It Concealer and Lock It powder
@buxomcosmetics bronzer in Maldives, (my hgbronzer)  **pr
@flowerbeauty Sweet Pea blush pot. 
Did muh hrr with @thebeachwaver .75"

Day 2,  I was challenged by Buxom Cosmetics to wing a little superhero action.  Afterwards, I got on Snapchat and deflected invisible bullets with a little "pew, pew, pew!"


Products used: 
Complexion:
@buxomcosmetics Venus Divine Goddess Illuminator as primer and base  **pr
@coverfx celestial Custom Enhancer Drops
@burberry White Runway Palette Highlighter

. Lips:
. Buxom Plumpliner Lip Liner Code Red  **pr
. Buxom Matte Bold Gel Lipstick in Red Inferno  **pr
.Cartoon Highlight is #nyxprofessionalmakeup White Liquid Eye Liner .



The third look was something I wanted to do with my dog.  She's a rap star, you know, right?  She does benefit concerts and stuff....I had a full scenario for her return to the stage after a leg injury but she just wasn't having it.   In my imagination, we were dressed as her former sister in a Mommy and Me contest.



She wouldn't play, so I filmed my October Ipsy and Sephora Play unboxings.  You can see that here:


. Products:
@fentybeauty foundation to prime the canvas
@katvondbeauty Lock It Concealer used in a different way today
@buxomcosmetics eyeshadow Mix N Mingle, Invite Only & Filthy Rich to start the tabby coloring
. Markings are #Buxom waterproof eyeliner Call Me   **pr
@viseart Neutral Matte eyeshadow palette to complete all the fur colorings

. Inner cheek gouhly highlight is @lorealmakeup Astro Blue Infalliable Galaxy Stick Highlighter

I thought it would be so funny to dress up like another youtuber.  I picked Desi Perkins.  Here is my inspirational picture from Desi's Instagram:


And here I am being an older Desi.  I'm probably the only one who thought that was funny.

If you know me, you know I am glued to baseball playoffs and the World Series every year, and even more so when my team is playing!  Clayton Kershaw, the Dodger Ace, was due to pitch on Game 5 and I was ready!!!  Here I am as Kershaw's Killer Slider.

Polarbelle Halloween

Products:
White Grease Paint . @makeuprevolution Ghost Sculpt powder
@nyxcosmetics Milk Jumbo eye pencil
@collab lash primer from @sallybeauty . @katvondbeauty Hemingway Ink liner . @nyxcosmetics Vivid Liquid liner in the red color...which exploded but it worked out ok. . Let's go Dodgers!!!

And last but not least, I dressed up as a Polarbelle for Halloween.  When I meet a new person and they learn my online name, they always ask what a Polarbelle is.  I'm from Alaska, so I'm not a Southern Belle, right?  I am an Arctic Princess Warrier, a Polarbelle.  My fantasy interpretation of that is below.   I did film a video so expect to see the Polarbelle in action soon, although it all made my teeth look really yellow, so maybe that's too spooky of a video?


I had a lot of fun just throwing caution to the wind and playing pretend all week for the first time in 100 years.  Can you believe today is November already?!?  I won't dress as a turkey because I wear that costume all year, haha.  Did you do anything fun or get any cool candy this season?
