PTL 🙌🏽 FENTY ADDED THE GLOSS PERMANENTLY
I picked up this mini fenty beauty glass bomb and highlight set over the holiday season- I have always heard amazing things when it came to their formula that I knew it had to be the first product of theirs that I tried! I’m even more excited to announce that they’ve made this a part of their line up and is now available in the full size 🎉 $weet Mouth is a gorgeous shimmering soft pink- the perfect peachy pink that’s colorful but doesn’t look like you’ve taken a pink crayola to the mouth. The cool thing about their formula is their glosses contain Shea butter which make them stand out- conditioning the lips even as a gloss (which some formulas tend to dry them out). The highlight shade is a pretty champagne with just a hint of pink (very soft and almost unnoticed). It’s a perfect highlight or a beautiful eyeshadow to swipe and look like you spent more time on your look than you did. Both are great for everyday but can still be used for glam.

THE HAIRCARE WE DIDNT KNOW WE NEEDED
If you know me in real life, then you’ll know my obsession I have with Sol de Janiero products! There’s even a running joke about at work because one time my manager thought I had placed 🍑 cream in the office 🤣🤣 needless to say it’s an ongoing argument between bum vs boom 🤪 When I found out they were coming out with shampoo/conditioner that also had their Cheirosa ‘62 fragrance- I flipped with excitement! After using another shampoo one day and coming back to this: I immediately noticed a difference. My hair was softer, less frizzy (almost reminded me of how it look in HS when I used to straighten my hair). I didn’t want to fall in love with a $25 shampoo- but it looks like it’s happening 😂 My hair feels refreshed: it looks healthier and less damaged than before while also looking straight yet has volume! 💁🏽♀️ my hair type is oily, straight, and my hair has never been colored The formula includes ingredients such as: 🌞 their SOL seal technology: plant-based keratin beads that hell target your hair damage. 🌞Brazil Nut Selenium: a blend of omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E helping provide moisture and helping protect again frizz. 🌞Buriti Oil: rich in healthy fats that help smooth and deeply condition hair and bringing shine to dull hair! This product is color safe, claims to be good for all hair types, and is vegan, cruelty free, as well as gluten free.

It’s a NEED, not a WANT
I know what you’re thinking- girl a $34 foundation brush isn’t a need or a want- it’s a dream! Hear me out though, because this brush has ruined just about any other tool for me. It’s for the gal on the go: because in a few swift swipes- you’re makeup base is done! It’s for the perfectionist: because it’s blends your foundation in beautifully, letting your skin and the product become one. It’s for the beginner: because it’s effortless- a great way to introduce other techniques because your foundation is practically done for you. It’s blend-able, easy to clean, and sturdy! I personally also love the size of it- it’s stubby enough to have full control but big enough to really cover ground. I’m forever sold on this tarte brush- I don’t need any other. $35 is well worth it- it delivers on the price tag!

The best kind of bum is a Sunbum 🌞
If you know me then you’ll know my absolute favorite scent ever...the smell of Sunbum products! They smell like the perfect beach day imaginable. Now onto the products (the fun part!!) Their Shampoo and Conditioner: super smoothing, conditioning, and nourishing. With ingredients such as coconut oil, banana, and sunflower seed oil- your hair will thank you for the purchase! Their lip balms: I’ve been a fan of their balms for YEARS- ever since I worked on the beach during summer. They’re nourishing, smell amazing, and have a wide array that actually have SPF 30 built into them which is perfect! From scents like coconut, watermelon, banana, mango, and the list goes on... there’s something to fit each persons mood and likes. Each lip balm also had vitamin E and Aloe built in. What are you waiting for?

Controversial as it may be-this is game changin
Too Faced - Hangover 3-in-1 Primer & Setting Spray I always believed in the importance of finding a good setting spray- but with my luck it just seemed as though I could never truly find the right one. That was until I found Too Faced- both their peach and hangover setting sprays seem to be my favorite. They refresh VERY well, are perfect to dampen a beauty sponge in a pinch, and set my face for an all day affair extremely well. It’s important that you shake it well before spritzing onto the face but other than that- it’s true to the label and claims. Smells great, soothing to the skin (in my experience), and helps my makeup stay throughout the busy work day. 5/5 ✨✨✨✨✨

WHEN ITS SO GOOD YOU HAVE TO GET A REPLACEMENT
Let’s talk empties 🤪👀 I’m a primer lover- if there’s anything I can justify stocking up on its primer! I love trying out different kinds and comparing them... so when I knew I HAD to buy a new bottle of the Tula primer before I ran completely out, I knew I was onto something! I’ve actually NEVER repurchased a primer before this in my life. This is a GAME CHANGING PRODUCT(!!!) It’s meant to be a blurring, filling, and moisturizing primer... including ingredients like chai, turmeric, and licorice. It’s redness reducing properties add a nice ‘filter’ to the skin that makes applying makeup a breeze but also covers up your pigmentation so well- you feel confident leaving the house after that one step. (No makeup needed!) I’m not one to like my skin... I never felt pretty growing up and hid under makeup or self tanned skin for a long time. I feel free to be me thanks to some great products that help heal your skin- and I know many think primer is a scam but this is more of an added skincare step. What are you doing? Hop on over to ulta and change your life for $35!!

GO-TO: CHEEK PALETTES
Work/School: #Tom Ford - Soleil Contouring Compact[products]#[FiveStars] My go-to for work or school days because 1) the shades are super easy to work with, 2) the powders are sheer-but-buildable/fool-proof, and 3) the formula is soft and buttery so it blends into the skin like magic! I love this palette so much and I found it at an outlet cosmetics store on sale! Natural/Dewy: HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio I love cream formulas for days when I want to look dewy and glowy. They are the perfect consistency for a natural look because they melt into the skin seamlessly and add a wash of color. This palette is my favorite cream palette because of the color scheme. Can you tell from all the swatch photos what kind of blush/bronzer tones I’m very much into? 😆 (a coral blush and warm bronzer) Full Glam: #Kevyn Aucoin - The Contour Palette 4-in-1[products]#[FiveStars] Unfortunately, this palette is discontinued (although Kevyn Aucoin has continued to come out with similar palettes!). But the shades are perfect for a full glam look. It has the cool-toned contour shade, the peachy-coral blush, a warm champagne highlight and a warm bronzer- just the way I like it! The powders are exceptional- extremely buttery and pigmented✨ Travel: HOURGLASS - Limited Edition Ambient Lighting Edit Face Palette This palette doubles as an eyeshadow palette too! I mean look at these shades 😍 I love every single one- they are the smoothest powders I’ve ever tried! It comes with a huge mirror so it’s great for on the go, or when the place you’re staying at doesn’t have a great mirror situation!

OLE HENRIKSEN C-RUSH BRIGHTENING GEL CREME
OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer Let me introduce you to the citrus-scented cream of your dreams. Infused with Orange fruit extract and Lemon fruit extract, this Vitamin C packed moisturizer helps to brighten and improve skin texture. This is such a uniquely textured product. Reading up on the official description of this, it was inspired by bursts of freshly squeezed fruits! It’s surprisingly lightweight, but moisturizing and thick at the same time 🤔 It also has a very citrus scent that to me is very refreshing, but may irritate other people. So I would keep that in mind. I’ve been loving this cream for the day time because it seriously gives me a glow all day. It’s slightly peach-tinted so it brightens the skin in a very subtle way and I’ve seen a huge difference since I started using it! ✨

✨Ultra Dewy Radiance ✨
I literally cannot get enough of this Summer Fridays jet lag mask. This cruelty free, paraben free facial mask feels utterly amazing on my skin. It nourishes my complexion with a multitude of vitamins and nutrients plus ceramides too & leaves my skin feeling so soft & supple, plumped and glowing. Although this is a mask, I feel that it is so light weight in texture that it actually does melt right into my complexion & I don’t even feel the need to wipe off; or especially not to rinse off, any excess product. Unlike other masks, this Summer Fridays mask seems to literally melt into my complexion, nourishing it, revitalizing it, making it look so much more plump, glowing and radiant. It’s hydrating yet not greasy or sticky at all. It doesn’t have any weight to it whatsoever on my skin. I have heard of people using this as a primer under their makeup and I also do that as well. I feel it just makes your skin looks so incredible that I get so many compliments when I use this summer Friday jet lag mask as a primer ✨SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask

Moisturizer with SPF Paula’s Choice
Moisturizer with SPF - Paula’s Choice Skin Restoring Moisturizer with SPF 50 The moisturizer with SPF I can’t stop reaching for lately is this lovely one by Paula’s Choice. I’m pretty picky with my SPFs, because I find a lot of them tend to feel either too dry on my skin, or cause me to become quite oily throughout the day. This product is formulated with antioxidants as well as niacinamide, shea butter, and liquorice, to hydrate and protect the skin. Wearing SPF everyday is crucial to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun and to prevent premature aging, while the added benefit of antioxidants protect against environmental stressors. I also love niacinamide in my skincare products as it aids in keeping skin clear! The texture is just like any other moisturizer I have used, and I am glad it doesn’t have a thick, hard to rub in formula like some SPFs do. I have been using this product as the last step of my AM routine for about a month, and I am really enjoying it so far. The moisturizer itself is quite hydrating, and leaves my skin with a subtle glow. With consistent use of this product, I notice my skin is hydrated and supple, as well as I have significantly less pigmentation in my skin. Daily use of SPF can reduce pigmentation in your face, minimize post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) from breakouts, and speed up the lightening of previous PIH. This product was gifted to me, but I find it very difficult to find an SPF that works right for my skin, so I will definitely be repurchasing this. It retails for $33 which is well worth it in my opinion. I highly recommend that if you’re in the market for a new SPF, or looking to try one for the first time, this is a great one to try out!
Caudalie Oil Control Moisturizer
CAUDALIE - Vinopure Natural Oil Control Moisturizer This moisturizer from Caudalie has been an absolute dream to use over the past few months. Vinopure is mattifying yet hydrating while it traps oil & blackheads as well as addressing existing blemishes. It is formulated with noncomedogenic essential oils that provide antiseptic benefits to keep the skin calm, clear, and to control oil production. I reach for this moisturizer way more in the summer when my skin is at its oiliest, or if I know I have a really long day at work. I love it because it almost feels like I’m applying a filter on my skin that fills in my pores and smooths out the overall appearance of my skin. It works so well at controlling oil throughout the day and it also helps keep my skin clear. Especially if I already have a pimple, I notice this helps reduce the size throughout the day. This is definitely my go to moisturizer to wear on a day to day basis because I think it provides such a nice base that’s easy to wear all day. It also wears beautifully under makeup! At $39, I highly recommend this to anyone with normal to oily skin.
