What’s in your makeup bag: Ruby Roxx

As promised, here is part 2 of my Ruby Roxx feature and interview. In case you missed it last week, Ruby answered a few of my questions, to which she provided some pretty great answers- you should probably go read it, if you haven’t yet. Check it out here.

Ruby Roxx is a pinup and alternative model hailing from Vancouver, BC. She has graced the cover of some of our favorite pin up magazines like Delicious Dolls, Garters & Grills, and The Pin Up Magazine.

Today Ruby shares with us what is in here makeup bag…Are you ready for it?

Here is what Ruby had to say about her look:

“Of course I don’t use all of these every day. If im not shooting, I work from home, and like to give my skin a break, so most days I only wear mascara. The most important part for me is my skin care. I wash morning and night using Cetephil. I use a toner, a serum and a day/night moisturizer. And of course my Avene thermal water.”

I would agree that skin care is such an important part of every gals beauty regime… If our skin is not plump, pampered, hydrated, and cared for, the rest of out look will be thrown off… powders will crease, skin can look tried… you get the idea. I think I may have to try Rubys Avene Thermal water and see what magic it can do for me.

  • SauceBox “crème de la crème” palate (perfect for Smokey eyes)
  • Lime Crime lip gloss in “red velvet”. Dries to a perfect, smudge proof, matte red.
  • Avene Thremal Spring Water Spray. Skin care is the most important part about my beauty routine. I spray this on my face 3-4 times a day, as well as moisturize morning and night. It keeps my skin hydrated, keeps redness at bay, and is invigorating. Its my favorite product by far.

I’ve used a few of the same products as Ruby listed, but I think I may have to try a few more… I’d love to try out Youngique, as my lashes can sometimes leave a lot to be imagined. I am still looking into trying new eye brow products as well, so may have to check out what Benefit has to offer.

Barefoot Venus: making your skin silky smooth, the natural way

I first fell for Barefoot Venus a few years ago, when a good friend gifted me some of their luxurious lotion for my birthday. I am a sucker for anything natural, organic, or cruelty free…In fact, I tcruelty-free-beauty-300x336hink every one should be. I don’t believe animals should suffer so we can wear pretty lipsticks and eyeshadow, wash our hair and face, or indulge in body lotions. We can do all of those things with products that are cruelty free, by companies who have a conscious and are able to provide outstanding products without harming animal.

Barefoot Venus makes a wide variety of products: body lotion, facial cleansers, body wash, bubble bath and salts, lip balms, hand and foot lotions, and more. Their products are made without parabens, sulfates, synthetic colours, propylene glycol, all those unnecessary unnatural ingredients. Instead, Barefoot Venus uses shea and cocoa butter, natural fruit and herb oils and extracts, green tea, and all the yummy, natural things. You can feel the difference when using this product. Their body lotions are so rich and actually moisturizing; when using a drugstore lotion, they feel sparse and watery and not at all moisturizing.

Barefoot Venus is also made in Canada! I rejoice when I can find a quality product I love and in purchasing it can support the economy I live in.

With scents like Vanilla Shake, Lemon Freckle, Coconut Kiss, Hunny Mango, and Wild Ginger & Sweet Orange, there is something to delight everyone. Just listing all the scents is making my mouth water… goodness me, I need to get more Barefoot Venus lotions and quick! Barefoot Venus also makes for a delightful gift for birthdays, weddings showers or gifts, for the hard to buy for, for the just because, for gift exchanges…for any occasion.

Barefoot Venus is just divine, plain and simple. And what pin-up girl does not want to feel divine?

I can’t stress enough how important I think it is to buy cruelty free and natural products. Yes, they are more expensive, sometimes significantly, so they can be a luxury. That being said you can definitely find makeup, soaps, tooth pastes, and cleansers for a similar price to the unethical ones society has accepted as the norm. In regards to body lotions like Barefoot Venus, you use less of the products because it works so well, so it will last longer. And if it is still out of your budget… you can also ask for it for your birthday or Christmas, like I will be doing this year!
