Glossier Beauty by Stephanie Garay

I'm a big fan when it comes to beauty. I'm kind of a beauty junkie, but you would be surprised I don't have much of a makeup stash. I keep it pretty minimal and stick to the basics of what I really need. As I've gotten older I'm more aware of the ingredients of what I put on my face. Is it a clean makeup or skincare product? Are their any harsh ingredients that you shouldn't be putting on your face? Do they test on animals? These are all things I care about, and as a vegan I read every ingredient. 

I've currently been obsessing over everything glossier. I've tried out a lot of their products, not all but some that have caught my attention. Some are vegan/some aren't. The first product I ever purchased was their masks. I wasn't a big fan at first, but I don't let a product go to waste (this was before going green with my beauty products).

Mega Greens Galaxy Pack (which is vegan) is commonly described as a juice cleanse for your face. So why not treat your body right from the inside and out. It's made with natural ingredients. I love that it balances and conditions pores while also calming any inflammation you might have. It does leave your skin matte and clean so it's a must to moisturize after. It's also one of my favorites because it's a gentle mask that does so much for your skin. You might think it's harsh since it is a mask that draws out impurities and detoxifies, but it isn't and its awesome if you need a mask for a night of relaxing. 

Moisturizing Moon Mask: this is for sure a great mask for hydration after detoxifying your skin. Its brightening and plumps the skin up with hydration to help smooth any fine lines you might have. Its great for all skin types.

Perfecting Skin Tint (vegan): more skin, less makeup is right. This is what I love about glossier. Their skin tint is my go to for my every day look. It evens out my skin tone with any discoloration I might have. This formula is super thin and breathable which is the best part. Its not a full coverage tint, so if you need something full coverage, this wouldn't be your best friend. 

 

Phase 1 Set: This is a great start before your makeup because it has everything for a perfect base. It's all about hydration and prepping the skin first. It comes with three basics; a cleanser, moisturizer and balm.

1. Milky Jelly Cleanser (vegan):  Perfect daily face wash (I keep mine in the shower to start my morning). Its a Ph balanced formula and has a gel consistency. After using this product it leaves your skin super soft and clean. Using it everyday believe it or not it will never leave your skin tight or dry. One of my favorite things about this cleanser is that its so gentle that it won't irritate your eyes and it does the job of getting rid of all your makeup off and leaving your skin super clean. Plus it smells pretty nice. 

2. Priming Moisturizer: A great start to prep your makeup. It's super hydrating, plumps up your skin and helps minimize the appearance of pores. It also has a anti-redness complex which helps soothe and even your skin tone. This product is great and has some good key ingredients but it isn't vegan. I am using up the rest of what I have and then searching for a new alternative.

3. Balm dot Calm: Its a hydrating balm and its a multipurpose product which is what I love. It comes in many flavors and you can put it all over your body, if you wanted to (lol). It's moisturizing, soothing, and conditioning. Overall a great product.

 

Stretch Concealer: A buildable formula that you can always touch up through out the day. It definitely doesn't cover dark circles but it works great if you don't need to much coverage or if you wanna use it just to correct a few blemishes on your face instead of wearing full on foundation. It comes in many different shades and leaves a dewy fresh look. It works best when you warm up the product first and apply with fingers!

Boy Brow: Fluffer, filler, shaper. Personal favorite for thickening my brows and filling in. Its a creamy wax formula. It comes in a few shades. It works great if you have a fuller brow already because then you don't need to fuss with it too much.

Cloud Paint: Makes blush so much easier. Its sheer and buildable, a little bit of cloud paint goes a long way. Its a fun product because you can mix each one to make your own blush color if you want to get more creative. It gives your cheeks a nice plumping healthy flushed glow which I love.

 

These are the few products that I have tried from Glossier. I love my vegan options and it's sad that a lot more of their products aren't vegan friendly. All their products are cruelty-free which is great but going a step further wouldn't hurt. 

Here are a few more VEGAN friendly items from them.

1. Soothing Face Mist

2. The Supers- Super Glow, Super Pure, and Super Bounce.

3. Generation G (Lip Tint) 

New place to call home. by Stephanie Garay

Well it's now been about three weeks since moving into the new place. I wake up to palm trees, the sunny sky and every thing is slowly coming together and it's feels good. Since arriving in our new neighborhood, we've been exploring and doing lots of antique shopping for our new place. We have had amazing luck with our new pieces from $30 to $100 the highest. We are taking the minimalist approach and even doing some DIY furniture pieces. Our bed frame was our first go at making something ourselves and it came out amazing! ( I was pretty impressed, although all I did was hold down some parts). Our dresser took us the longest to find, but we didn't give up and found the most perfect mid century modern piece. With everything almost done I'm excited to show you guys bits and pieces that make it home.

Red Rock Canyon by Stephanie Garay

Dan and I took a little trip away from unpacking last week and headed to Las Vegas. It was my first time there and the red rocks is where it's at. I loved the desert, plants and just how peaceful it felt (even with so many tourists). We had such an incredible day and the weather was perfect. We spent the day hiking and taking a ton of photos. If you've never been out there, you should totally put the Red Rock Canyon on your bucket list. 

With the time difference and late nights, there was no doubt that I needed my coffee while I was in Vegas. I found this perfect coffee shop, Vesta Coffee Roasters, which is right up my alley. Thanks to Instagram, it's so easy to find cool places while you're on vacation. The vibe was super chill and the baristas were so nice! I love a good environment like that, it feels like a second home. 

Our trip started out in Downtown Las Vegas, right on Fremont Street and only stayed there two nights. We then closed up the trip at the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino. We spent our time there relaxing and enjoying the last few days while trying to win some money. Our goal was to have fun and not take things to seriously. It was definitely an experience. I'd choose the desert over flashy lights on the strip any day.

A bit cheeky by Stephanie Garay

A perfect morning starts with glossier. I was super excited when they announced they were coming out with cheek tints. I was always curious whether they would do more with make up, since their go to is skin. The consistency of the new cloud paints Is exactly what I love when It comes to make up. A little goes a long way and the texture Is super light weight which I'm all for. Its build-able and seamless, giving you such a natural healthy glow. All four colors work for any skin tone and are beautiful. 

On a more personal level my beauty routine consist of very little makeup. As I'm getting older less is more and I've always loved a natural makeup look. Glossier has everything you need if you're a chick like me and love makeup thats easy, build-able and perfect for everyday. Sadly enough I have yet gotten my hands on some of their other products, but I know for a fact I would love them!

So no bad vibes here, I'm completely In love with this product! I would highly recommend getting your hands on some. 

 

Hello. by Stephanie Garay

Hi, hello and welcome to my first official post. I decided to keep things simple and let you guys get to know me, what I like and who I am.

Long story short...(or at least I'll try and make it a short story). I've been blogging since I was 21 and Zerotosixty is where it all started. Getting into the blogging world and seeing where it took me. I started zerotosixty as a place to share my knowledge with you guys. I'm a licensed hair stylist and make up artist. It was my go to place to share my tips and tricks with you, share my random thought and share all things beauty and fashion related. It was always an on and off again thing with posting new content and somedays I wasn't inspired. 

I truly believe that everything around you matters in what you do and inspires you. I had my good and bad days, sometimes bad overcame the good. So it was really hard for me to put my head in the game. But things change and things happen and always for a reason.

I'm now 26 and soon to be 27 next month. I'm in a completely new head space and feel good where I am and I finally feel together. I have an amazing boyfriend who supports me and pushes me (you'll see him here from time to time on our travel adventures). In two months I'll be somewhere completely new from where I sit on my bed currently typing this and I can't wait. 

I hope you tag along for whats to come and follow me else where to say hello :)
