A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Skora Bath Salts

Rustic Maka - Skora Bath Salts

As I’m just finishing up a hectic filming schedule shooting both Heartland out west and Shadowhunters here in Toronto, I have made time when I’m home to take a 30-minute bath soaking in warm water and my favourite bath salts of all time. All natural dead sea salt added to my bath have more benefits than just relaxing and enjoying some “me time.” The minerals found in the bath salts help detoxify your skin, relieve stress and muscle ache, improves mood and helps with insomnia, all while infusing your bathroom with the most amazing scent that revitalizes your mind as well.

For that half hour with the lights off, candles lit, some music and my Skora Bath Salts (Citrus Gardens), I feel like I’m in my very own escape and I love every single minute of it. My favourite ladies at Rustic Maka have done it again! Thank you for creating these bath salts that I feel are safe to use, all natural, and truly so enjoyable!

Check out Skora Bath Salts and see all the other scents Rustic Maka has to offer. My favourites are Citrus Gardens and Sweet Lemonade!! Use two generous handfuls in your bath and keep your bath salts sealed properly and in a dry place!

Love,

Kaitlyn Leeb

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Update

image1 (1)

Hey guys. I know I have been M.I.A this month and I’m so sorry but I wanted to give you all a quick update so it doesn’t seem like I completely fell off the face of the earth. I have been traveling back and forth all month shooting Heartland in Calgary and Shadowhunters in Toronto. I think I have been on a plane more times this month than I have slept in my own bed. It’s safe to say I’m pretty exhausted but will be home for a couple of weeks before I have to head back to shoot again.

We have some pretty exciting collaborations coming up in the next couple of weeks that I cannot wait to share with you all. Hope everyone is enjoying the last couple weeks of summer!!! XOXO

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Makeup Remover

IMG_2056

So, an eyelash tip I always swear by when I am shooting is to curl my lashes and apply waterproof mascara. The reason behind this is that the waterproof formula dries faster and will hold my curl all day and night. I have straight lashes so this is what I do. However, waterproof mascara is a product for the summer – pools, cottages, etc.! It’s amazing but terrible to remove. I found the answer.

The Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover by Lancome is incredible. I apply some to a cotton pad and gently remove any eye makeup, including that waterproof mascara that is so hard to get off. It removes it so easily that I don’t have to tear at my eyes and lashes, as I find other removers sometimes do.

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Bare Minerals Bare Skin

One of the amazing makeup artists I get to work with brought this foundation to my attention while we were on set. She applied it on me that day and I ran out the following day to purchase it for myself. The new bareSkin brightening foundation by bareMinerals is amazing. It leaves your skin looking natural, fresh, bright, and has great build-able coverage if you want it. The formula is very thin and east to apply, as it goes on like a second skin.

This foundation has SPF 20 built into it, it’s a great price point and a little goes a long way so it should last you a while.

I wear Bare Latte 11.

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Tangle Teezer

For my first post about HAIR, I wanted to make it about a product that I cannot live without and has changed my hair routine forever: The TANGLE TEEZER. I had heard about this product a couple of years ago and heard so many people rave about it. It’s supposed to gently remove any tangles and knots you have in your hair without damaging it. I was intrigued as my hair is fine and the type that tangles in knots. I recently came across the TT at a local Sephora and immediately purchased it. I was so excited to try it out I think I jumped in the shower right away and washed my hair so I could give this a go untangling my hair.

WOW! It was amazing. It took the tangles out right away and with no damage to my hair, and by damage, there were no clumps of hair surrounding the brush or all over the floor compared to how it usually went brushing my wet hair with a normal comb. I LOVE this tool and carry it around with me wherever I go!! Definitely worth the money as my hair feels healthier and thicker than it ever has before.

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Beauty Blender

I absolutely love writing about new products and trends, but I also love writing about things I can’t live without or use every day. If there is one thing that is worth mentioning, it is my Beautyblender. This cute little egg shaped tool will help you put foundation on so effortlessly and fast. It is also the best tool for blending in concealer. Make sure it is damp though because it works so much better that way.

These little guys are around $25, however, if you take care of it and clean it regularly, it will last you a long, long time. I hold my BB under warm running water for about 10 seconds, squeeze out the excess water and start my foundation process. Makeup goes on flawlessly and takes less time than using a brush, especially for concealer.
