It’s my Favorite Fall Beauty Buys!
These posts are my favorite to read on other people’s blogs, so I’m always excited to share them with you too.
I love beauty products (makeup, hair, face, bath, etc) and am switching them around all the time, BUT there are some that are tried and true favorites that I’ll never switch (I’m talking to you MAC mascara!). I mentioned this a few weeks ago, but one of my favorite parts about Kensington’s birthday trip to NYC was the impromptu makeover Erika and I got! We stopped at the Bobbi Brown counter and before you knew it, we both had complete makeup makeovers. It was so much fun!! Here is our after picture…
Not bad, right?! The next morning, we tried our best to recreate it…
…pretty good, right?!
I tend to change my makeup with the seasons. I wear a bit more foundation/eye shadow in the fall/winter and less of everything in the summer.
Here are all my faves right now…from makeup to air to face stuff and more!
So, this was the Holy Grail of what the sweet lady at the Bobbi Brown counter put on me. She kept telling me over and over again how I needed to get this right. First step, apply the GOLDEN GLOW ILLUMINATING MOISTURE BALM all over my face. (One pump of it is all I need.) After that, use the FOUNDATION STICK (I’ve used this product several times before and it’s always one of my favorites). You literally take off the cap and apply strokes of foundation all over your face and then buff it out with a brush (pictured below). My color is NATURAL. After that, I apply the HYDRATING EYE CREAM under my eyes. Next, I add the CORRECTOR (in BISQUE) under my eyes and buff it in with a brush (pictured below) before finally adding a bit of the INTENSIVE SKIN SERUM (in COOL SAND) in the corners of my eyes and a little down the side of my nose for brightness.
Now, I already had 5 out of the 7 of these products. You know my very favorite eye pencil is by ESTEE LAUDER (they changed the packaging recently), I will never use another mascara besides MAC’S HAUTE & NAUGHTY, my favorite lid color for eye shadow is SABLE, my other favorite eye shadow for a more neutral lid is NUDE BEACH and then of course, when I need some powder, I’ve used this BOBBI BROWN NUDE FINISHING POWDER (in nude) for years. What’s new is my BRONZER (in MEDIUM) and BLUSH (in TAWNY). I love the bronzer because it’s more matte (not shimmery like some), so it just gives a nice warm color without going overboard. The blush was one I never would have picked up, but I really think it’s lovely. I’m super pleased with both purchases!!
The lady insisted this was my new lip color. Hahahaha! Who am I to argue? I’m wearing it in the two pics at the top of the post.
First, she said line my lips with this pencil in rose, then add this balm for hydration followed by this matte lipstick (IN TRUE PINK) and then if I need to touch up with gloss, this one in pink beige.
I have had the first two brushes you see here for years. I wash them off every week with baby shampoo and let them air dry on a towel. The first one, I use for my powder and bronzer, the second one is the one I buff my foundation with and the third is the new eye brush for my hydrating eye cream, corrector and concealer.
This post is not sponsored by drybar…hahahaha! I just really, really, really love their products!! I switch hair stuff up a lot, but as you can see, the MAI TAI SPRITZER and MONEY MAKER hair spray are always in my “faves”. I’ve started spraying on the PREP RALLY right after I get out of the shower as an extra bump of hydration (hello, dry fall hair!) and then I spray the HOT TODDY on my hair before I use heat.
I switched to MATRIX TOTAL RESULTS MEGA SLEEK shampoo and conditioner back in June and can’t imagine using anything else. This stuff is pure gold!
You can learn why I love my T3 here…
Okay, I’ve told you about all three of these products before. My favorite SPF (I apply it after my lotion and before my HYDRATING BALM) is this SUPERGOOP one, I love TULA’S HYDRATING DAY AND NIGHT CREAM. It’s always my favorite but never more so then in the fall and winter when my skin is extra dry. Annnnnnd I just love this PETER THOMAS ROTH PUMPKIN MASK. Not only does it really work well, but it smells like pumpkin pie.
Annnnnnnd…I’m all natural now on the deodorant 🙂 . I’m still loving this one from PRIMAL PIT PASTE.
Okay! That’s what I’m loving now! What about you? What’s your go-to for beauty right now????
One more final thing today. Here are the 10 winners of the new Meal Planner book…
