Favorite Beauty Finds…

January 10, 2018

My family has been sick for pretty much all of the last three weeks. We have had influenza, colds, sore throats headaches, and one ended up with a skin infection! So, needless to say, we have been a little down and out. I went for a massage yesterday that seemed to give me a new lease on life. Ha! I’ve been trying to stay caught up on sleep as well since I am in my final trimester. So, if I’ve been a little MIA that’s why!

I wanted to share some of my favorite beauty items that I’ve been using for a while. You’ll notice that I have way too many different foundations. For me, that is the thing I switch out the most. It may seem odd that I have three different ones on my list but that’s because I use them all for different things.


Mac ‘perfect light color’ – the color I use is called ‘naked lunch’ (seriously, who names these shadows). It is a great light color without being white. It stays on really well. I either wear it alone or with a darker color in the crease of my eye.

best face brush cleaning combo – I use this brush with foundation and some lotions. The brush does a great job of getting makeup on evenly. The cleaning pad works very well. I normally use some baby soap and water to clean my brushes.

cc cream – this is one of the many foundations I switch between. Ha! I love that it fills in wrinkles and gives my skin a younger look. I also love that it has a SPF of 35. Another supergoop! product I love is this setting mist with a SPF 50.

eyeshadow or bronze brush – I use this brush to put on my eyeshadow or for putting bronzer on my nose. It really works well for both.

eyeshadow base (painterly) – I wear this shadow both alone and under things. It stays on really well and also seems to hold my other shadows in place. This is a great product to even out your skin color.

matte finish foundation – I use this foundation for daily wear and I love the matte finish. It really stays on well and isn’t too shiny.

tinted moisturizer – I use this foundation on days I want light coverage or if I am just going to the gym. I wear it a lot in the summer when I am more tan too. When picking a color for tinted moisturizer I always recommend to go with a little darker shade. That way you get the appearance of being a little more tan.

mascara – this mascara is so easy to layer on and wears really nicely. I hate when mascara flakes off of your eyes.

eyeliner – this eyeliner would stay on for days, I swear. I really like how easy it goes on and how it stays there.

setting powder РI put my foundation on and then I put this setting powder over top. It keeps  everything in place and then gives your face a more matte look.

concealer – I get really dark circles under my eyes. This products is a miracle worker! I always go a shade lighter to help balance out my dark circles. I put this on first and then use my foundation.

hourglass blush (mood exposure) – this blush gives a bronzing effect and adds some pink to your face. I actually cannot believe how much I like this blush.

This palette is amazing and on sale for $19. It’s great for highlighting, bronzer and blush.
