Hey, hey Wednesday!
I am super pumped about today’s post because I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle and talking all things holiday beauty including two things that have been VERY popular in my DMs over the last two weeks…
What is your new lip color?
What eye shadow palette have you been using?
Both Nordstrom finds!
But before we get to that, let’s chat about…
…the Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow. I told you guys last month that I love my primer and wear it every day. I had SO MANY OF YOU tell me that if I loved that one, I would really love this one here. I decided to go into my local Nordstrom to check it out. I realllllly like it and have been using it exclusively for about 3 weeks now.
After I moisturize in the morning, I apply this…
…and blend it all over my face before adding my foundation (the best foundation EVER, I use shade light beige). See how it blends right in but with just the tiniest bit of “glow”?! I love it! My foundation, bronzer and blush stay put all day and my face gets a little extra oomph from the primer too. #winwin
The. Best. Foundation. Lately, I have been using this brush to apply it easily too. If you’re interested in my daily eyeliner, it’s HERE. It’s really the only one I’ve used for probably 8 years. It’s in a new package now, but it’s the same liner. I wear cafe noir.
So, that’s that…now, what about my eye shadow and lip color?
Sex Machine is this color right here. It’s just a nice pinky-mauve-every day color and then…
…Dragon Girl is the PERFECT red for me. It’s bright and happy red but leans more pink and not orange. I don’t add a ton on my lips…just smooth on a bit for lots of stay-all-day color without being too red. Plus, since it’s a pencil, it stays put and isn’t sticky/doesn’t rub off. Love.
Okay, as for my fun holiday-inspired eye shadows lately. I have been using this little palette here…
…so fun, right?! Four fun neutrals easy to layer for the holiday season. I’ve been using them every day all over my lid and in the crease. I really didn’t expect anyone to notice, but I’ve had SO MANY questions and sent the link out so many times these last two weeks. I’m so glad you like it too!
If you’re like me, gifting beauty is one of my favorite things each year for ladies of all ages. I rounded up some of my faves for you to check out. All of these holiday beauty gift ideas are ones I’ve used, shared and loved before. I think they would make great gifts for girls as young as Kensington too. Who doesn’t want a little beauty in their stocking this year?!

I also wanted to share a few more fun gift ideas for your season. I saw this candle out now…
…and it’s already pre-wrapped for you 🙂 ! I love that!
A few more finds before I wrap up our Wednesday including…
…my new Ugg slippers 🙂 . You know how I feel about Ugg slippers. You would be hard pressed to find any picture of me inside my home not wearing a pair. Every fall, I buy myself a fresh new pair to enjoy 24/7 and this year, I picked this style HERE. It comes in a variety of colors, but chestnut spoke to me.
You know what my slippers would go great with????
I always love shopping at Nordstrom because not only do they have everything my family needs from beauty to shoes to home, clothes, bath and more, but they have impeccable service, free shipping, free returns and curbside pick up (all so handy for the busy holiday season!)…and the Nordy Club! You can catch all of their services (including alterations, gift wrapping, style help and more HERE!). I. Love. Them. Plus, this year, they have more ways to make the season bright! You can connect with the ‘man in red’ through Santa Chats, Santa Greetings and Letters for Santa. So many ways!
A few final Nordstrom holiday finds…
