Hey, hey Friday!
First great beauty finds, second…I need a nap.
Virtual learning this week wore me out.
I’m so happy it’s Friday!!!!!
I’m super pumped about my first beauty find from the Anniversary Sale…
You know how much I love the Becca Undereye Brightening Corrector (LOVE IT!), well, this year in the Anniversary Sale, they have a Becca Hydra Mist Set & Refresh Powder to go with it! So, the eye brightener goes under your eyes either in lieu of a concealer or on top of your favorite concealer…then, you can lightly apply the powder to not only set the concealer and/or brighener but it also keeps it in place, prevents creasing, smudges, rubbing off AND it keeps your makeup feeling fresh. Honestly, you can use this powder ALL OVER your face, but I love it the most under my eyes! I made you guys a little video to show you…
You’ll really love this! I’m using this brush here to apply mine.
In the video, I’m wearing…this eye shadow…
I’m also wearing…
…this Charlotte Tilbury lip trio in today’s video 🙂 (also on sale!).
Quick pic before heading to church on Sunday! It was our first time to go since March 1st!! I have on this dress from the sale (which, unfortunately is now sold out but you can see others from this brand HERE) along with the Becca Hydra Mist, eye shadow, lip trio, and both of my new necklaces from the sale…the star and initial!
Speaking of makeup…
If you love my 5 Minute Makeup Routine…
…look what’s in the sale this year…
…this Beauty Blender Set !
Here are all of the products I use in my 5 Minute Makeup Routine Video:
1: Foundation Stick: you can read my FOUNDATION REVIEW post, but this one here is my absolute fave! I love that you can apply as much or as little as you want. I love that it feels hydrating on my skin and not drying. I love that it easily glides on. I love everything about it. I’m wearing it in the shade light beige.
2: Under Eye Brightener: If I haven’t convinced you that this stuff is gold yet, I’m not sure what else I can do??? This is amazing!!!!! When I only have a few minutes to apply makeup, this instantly brightens my face!!
3: Bronzer and bronzer brush: Okay, I really think the brush is key when applying bronzer here. If I only could pick two products to wear the rest of my life, I’d pick lips and bronzer. Nothing wakes you up and makes you look glowy and vibrant more than bronzer.
4: Blush: There is a reason why this blush (in orgasm) is a cult classic. The universally flattering peachy pink color looks good on all skin types. Don’t believe me? Read the reviews!!
5: Lip Color: I love this matte lipstick!! I started wearing this one in Goals last summer. I love it because it lasts for hours (seriously, this one has staying power!!). It comes in many, many colors, but this pink color is the perfect pop when I’m not doing a lot of other makeup.
6: Eyebrow pencil: I started using this one in blonde thanks to you guys! So many of you recommended it to me, and now, I love it too. It goes on a little creamy and not harsh.
7: Eye Shadow Stick: When I’m doing my normal makeup routine (and not the abbreviated one), this is what I use as an eye shadow primer. It works for quick eye shadow too. I’m using it in rose gold.
8: Top Eye Liner in Noir: How many years now have I been saying this is my favorite eye liner?! I wear it every day. I love it for so many reasons, but right now during the summer, I love it the most because it’s waterproof!!
9: Bottom Eye Liner in Blanc: A little white eyeliner instantly wakes you up!
10: Mascara: You can read my full mascara review post HERE. For years, I’ve been saying Mac’s Haute & Naughty is my fave!
11: Beauty Blender: Last but certainly not least, a damp Beauty Blender is the only way to be! I love how seamless it applies everything, how easy it is to clean and how great it is for mid-day touchups!
Pair the tools with your favorite outfit…
…and you’re ready to go!
I can’t gush enough about these four pieces! The booties are the PERFECT transition shoe for fall because the peep toe works when the weather is still a bit warm, these jeans are SO COMFORTABLE, I am obsessed with this sweater and then the jacket is one of my favorite #nsale finds of all time (just size up on that one!).
Don’t forget, the Anniversary Sale continues through August 30th and there are even more BEAUTY EXCLUSIVES! There are beauty sets across all categories at a value, jumbos/duos, Anniversary priced regular priced items, & gifts with purchase! They’re all HERE. No one makes shopping easier than Nordstrom! With free shipping, free returns, and curbside pickup, you never even have to go inside the store! But if you do? Their beauty consultants are knowledgeable, helpful and oh so friendly!
