This post has been a long time coming, but I’ve been getting a ton of questions about my hair. I wanted to get it all together in one post so I’m breaking it down into different sections with all the products and tools I use.
With the new year I wanted to create more beauty content and feature products I love and can’t live without. First up I thought I’d share my current favorite makeup products. I love to try out new products but am pretty
safe simple and tend to go back to my usual lineup. Recently I’ve discovered a couple new products and am happy to add them to my regimen.
I like my face to look clean and natural but I love a glow. I’ve been feeling so pale this winter so I’ve dug out my beloved bronzer. Who am I kidding, I never put it away! I love to look a little sun kissed and go way lighter in the stroke in the winter.
I’m pretty low maintenance on my eyes. To me the most important thing is mascara. I’ve blogged about this one before but it’s my fav. You can’t beat the price either and can find it just about anywhere. I don’t wear eye shadow unless I’m going out at night but when I do I like bronzey brown shades to make my blue eyes pop.
I love a bold red lip, but because my mouth is on the bigger side it mades me look a little clownish. Luckily I love a natural looking pink lip too. I’ve been using Sugar for years but recently my friend Kathleen got me into this Urban Decay color. The name doesn’t lie, I am obsessed!
Have a great weekend.. thanks for reading!
Now that it’s practically winter I find myself gravitating towards these three products the most.
1. benefit that gal primer: No face of makeup lasts or looks great without a good primer. I’ve been using this one for about three years and I love it. I put my makeup on for work around 6 am and at 6 pm I’m still good to go for an evening out.
2. josie maran whipped argan oil body cream: First of all, it’s Maran like Karen, not Ma-ran. I’ve worked with Joise many times and not only is she fabulous but her products top notch. This body cream is my favorite, it keeps everything perfectly moisturized even during the driest months.
3. chanel mascara: I’ve been wearing mascara for something like 16 years, which is enough to consider myself an “expert.” Not only does this one lengthen and separate but it volumizes as well which is a basically unheard of trifecta in the mascara world. It’s a bit pricey but worth it, trust me.
