CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT | CT Hollywood Flawless
Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter I can’t live without this! When I pucked up Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, I was expecting more of a shinnery highlight. To my surprise, it looked more like a glowy foundation. Yet on the skin, it looks more stunning than I ever thought!It has a glowy, natural finish. Unlike most highlighters that are purely glowy, this one has some slight coverage, making it blend seamlessly with foundation. I love how this layers on top of my foundation! It just looks like a natural everyday glow!I can’t live without this because it brings any makeup look a step up with a glow from within look. I also enjoy layering highlighter on top of this if I want a more intense glow. This comes in a few shades but in my opinion they need more dark shades. At first, I got a shade too dark but when I switched I was really impressed with how it blended into my skin. I’m curious to know how a lighter shade would look if I applied it to the high points of my face. This is definitely a holy grail and I would recommend this to anyone! ✨✨

Best product for long voluminous lashes!!
I love Marc Jacobs beauty. From the highlighters, to the mascara. This has got to be my favorite from the brand by far. Gives the perfect amount of volume and length. Definitely buildable, and not clumpy at all. I've always been a drugstore mascara kinda girl, but this one is seriously worth the $27. Every time I wear it I get so many compliments, which is always a good sign that a product is doing its job! I haven't experienced any flakiness, or smudging yet, and it comes off very easily with makeup remover. It stays on all day and seems to last great in humid environments. It only comes in one color, "black", but it's honestly the most perfect dark black. You can't go wrong either when doing a simple daytime makeup look, or a sexy date night cat-eye look. Such a great mascara! Will definitely be repurchasing again. *photo is my lashes after just one coat MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

The best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever used!
The Beauty Counter Dew Skin tinted moisturizer is the perfect product if you want a nice dewy finish and not a heavy makeup look. It’s so easy to apply, I just use my fingers! And a 1.35 fl oz. size runs about $45. It’s currently on sale on their website by the way! It’s very light coverage but I find it to do a good job of concealing light pigmentation and just make your face look more awake. I apply it right after I cleanse and apply my eye cream and serum. You can just use it as a replacement for your moisturizer during the day. I’ve been using it for about 3 months now and would definitely purchase it again! I’m almost out of my container anyways since I use it daily. It doesn’t have a harsh smell and is very blendable. I use about 2 pumps for the whole face. I find makeup to stay on over it pretty well and it does last almost all day, even in humid conditions. Hope this reviews helps if you’ve been on the market for a good tinted moisturizer! xx #Beauty Counter - Dew Skin[products]#[FiveStars]
My most re-purchased Ordinary products
Okay so, I have tried 21 products from The Ordinary so far over three-ish years. It might not seem like too many, but man to my skin it feels like a lot of trial and error. But I wanted to go back and narrow down my collection to my most repurchased Ordinary products. These are the ones that work best for my combo / acne prone skin and keep me coming back for more! And of course, as you know, they are all very affordable. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution I absolutely love this toner / chemical exfoliator. I use it 1 time a week during my evening routine and wouldn’t use it more than that because it can be a bit sensitizing. But every time I use this toner, the next morning my texture and pores are visibly reduced and my skin looks smooth and glow-y. You get quite a good amount of product and it typically lasts me at least 4 months. The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque I like this mask a lot! It’s great for taking on oil skin or the occasional pimple. The salicylic acid and charcoal make this feel very cleansing and satisfying. I do prefer this to the salicylic acid serum because I have found that to be a bit too drying if I leave it on the skin. I mentioned in another review that this product didn’t help me get rid of all my acne, but it definitely helped. I use this once every 1-2 weeks or whenever my skin needs a little detox. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I love this serum in the winter. I don’t often get dry spots, but if I see that my skin if feeling a little dry in any area, I’ll just pat a bit of this on under my moisturizer and then I’m good to go. Sometimes I use this on my legs if they are especially dry. I also really like how the ordinary has started to sell bigger bottles of some key products. As a consistent user, I like the bigger bottle because it leads to less waste. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' I’m a big fan of Buffet. I use this probably 2x a week, or sometimes more if I want to give my skin a break from actives and just want to make my skin feel extra plump. The formula is very hydrating and although I have my doubts about products that claim anti-wrinkle benefits, I do think my skin looks smoother after using it. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution This is kind of a cheat... because I repurchased this is after my first one fell and smashed on the bathroom floor. 🙃 BUT I am happy I repurchased it because when I do use this my skin looks so so good the next morning. Particularly my skin tone and pores look much better the next day. I use this probably more like 1x every two weeks because I swear no matter how little product I apply it does sting a little. And that’s probably not good... but I’ll justify it with glowy skin. And shout out to my trusty The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% that is also amazing but missing from the pic! 🥰
How to get Healthy Silky Hair
First thing first, it is important to notice what causes frizz hair. Our Hair gets frizzy when it is dry and lacks moisture. Lack of humidity and heat caused by a shower are major causes of frizzy hair! My hair was highlighted for many years and I noticed my ends look lifeless and fried. I have a lot of breakage on my ends and they are super super dry and feeling like straw. I believe it is normally damage for most dark hair going lighter. I was recommended by a stylist friend who works in a salon and he said this was the best product selling last year and I have to try. I’ve always been a big fan of Kerastase and I love their oil. But this is my first time using their shampoo and masks. It is pricy and the result was amazing. KÉRASTASE - Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple Shampoo It is important that you use a moisturising or anti-frizzing shampoo that contains humectants like glycerin. This shampoo is a miracle treatment! It is actually the one work just as advertised - reverse and repair damage done to your hair done by bleaching or highlighting. It has an anti-static formula which leaves your hair shiny, smooth and strong. KÉRASTASE - Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple Mask I have to highlight this mask! It is an absolutely brilliant product! It does an excellent job on moisture retention, smoothing and protecting. At the same time , you can feel it works great on maintaining your hair’s own moisture and stopping frizzy hair after washing. I have to recommend my favorite product from Kerastase as well that always keeps my hair shiny. LISSOM - Kerastase Elixir Ultime L'huile Originale Oil This serum has very light textures and feels comfortable when you put it on. I normally apply a few drops before going the sleep and next day wake up gorgeous

How to Get Rid of Milia: 5 Ways
Milia are small, bump-like cysts found under the skin. They are usually 1 to 2 millimeters (mm) in size. They form when skin flakes or keratin, a protein, become trapped under the skin. Milia most often appear on the face, commonly around the eyelids and cheeks, though they can occur anywhere. However, there are a few things you can do to help speed up the healing process and prevent more milia from forming. 1. Don’t pick, poke, or try to remove them 2. Cleanse the area Make sure you’re washing your face with a gentle, paraben-free soap each day. Any soap that isn’t mild will strip your face of the oils it needs to stay balanced and healthy.After washing, pat your skin dry instead of letting it air dry. This will help prevent your skin from chafing or drying out. 3. Steam open your pores After cleansing, you may find it beneficial to steam open your pores to further remove irritants. One way to do this is to: Start by sitting in your bathroom with the shower running on a hot setting. The room will fill slowly with warm steam. Sit in the steam for 5 to 8 minutes. The steam will gently open up your pores, releasing skin flakes or other irritants that may be trapped underneath. After sitting in the steam, turn off the shower and wait a few minutes. Pat your face dry, and rinse with lukewarm water to wash away any irritants before you step out of the steamy room. 4. Opt for a light facial sunscreen You should already be wearing a sunscreen every day to protect the skin on your face from ultraviolet rays. An additional benefit of the right sunscreen can be a decrease in skin irritation that causes milia bumps. 5. Use a retinoid cream Use any product that contains retinol just once per day. Put it on when your face is scrubbed clean and dry. When using a retinoid cream, it’s essential to use a sunscreen daily. Retinoid creams make your skin more susceptible to skin damage caused by sun exposure.
