Beauty 101: Intro to Onomie

Onomie is a beauty brand I've been following for awhile - their Instagram is basically goals, and I've always been intrigued by their curated selection of skincare-meets-makeup products. The line consists of three products - the Bright Concealing Elixir,* the A.C.E. Illuminating Eye Treatment,* and the Powerful Priming Serum.* I'm all about simple products to whittle down my morning routine, so these have been welcome additions.

Powerful Priming SerumThe newest addition to the line, this works as a serum as well as a primer before makeup. Over time, it works to even out the skin tone by reducing dark spots, minimizes pores, and increases the skin's natural radiance. It also works to plump up and smooth the skin, leaving the perfect canvas for makeup. It has a soft luminescence to it that gives the skin a lovely glow - it reminds me of a more subtle version of the Becca Backlight Priming Filter. It contains Blackjack Botanical, Daisy Flower Extract, and Willowbark Extract to treat the skin. I've been using it every morning after cleansing to help prep my skin for makeup application, and I've noticed my makeup goes on more smoothly and stays on for longer.

Bright Concealing ElixirIt's an undereye concealer that also works as a dark circle-correcting eye cream - why haven't more brands thought of this? This is officially my favorite undereye concealer as it pretty much eliminates my dark circles right away. It doesn't even seem like a super high coverage formula, so it's basically magic. It's a thin, emollient texture that just glides on and blends in super easily. It also doesn't crease throughout the day, and since it has those eye cream properties, it doesn't leave my undereyes looking dry or crepe-y like some concealers do. It contains Night Sleeper Extract to increase blood flow, Egyptian Lupine Extract to limit dehydration, and Alfalfa Extract for anti-inflammation. It also comes in 10 shades, from something pale enough for me (I've got the lightest shade, Trotula) to some impressive deeper shades.

A.C.E. Illuminating TreatmentMeant to be used in tandem with the concealer, this illuminator helps to brighten and bring life to the eyes. It's a mousse-y formula that just glides onto the skin so easily and really adds light to wherever you use it. I add this to my cheekbones and blend it up onto my brow bone in a "C" shape, and it works as a really nice base for other highlighting products on a normal makeup day or on its own on no-makeup days. It works to reduce wrinkles and fine lines over time with Vitamins A, C, and E (hence the name!). 

Using all three products together in the morning really helps perfect the skin without feeling like I'm wearing makeup - they feel like steps within my normal skincare routine. I'm really interested to see what Onomie comes up with next because so far, I'm hooked. I also really really love that all of their shade names are named for different inspirational and strong women, from Marie Curie to Sojourner Truth. I've linked all three products separately above, but you can also get the eye products in a duo (save $5) or a bundle of all three (save $10).

Have you tried anything from Onomie before? Do you like more minimal, makeup/skincare hybrids or is more full-on makeup your thing?
