After a nice long summer break, I am getting back into the groove of things. One of my fall resolutions (yes, I know it isn’t January yet, but I am getting a head start) is to focus on my beauty routine. In the past, I haven’t paid too much attention to it – picking up products I had heard were good or just impulse buying because of pretty packaging (admit it, you’ve done that too). But now, I have a newfound appreciation for products that are actually “good” for my skin.
Maybe it’s the cool air that hit D.C. recently or the fact that I am definitely in full on fall-mode with #PSL’s and this #SweaterWeather. Nonetheless, here are the products I discovered recently that I fell in love with & I know you will too:
As per usual, everything is linked below!
First off, this moisturizing primer smells incredible – that is reason alone to buy it. It works so well and feels super light on my skin. Since using it, I’ve noticed my makeup lasting me way longer from day to night. It also makes my skin feel amazing (& crazy soft).
I never realized the importance of a primer until I started using one, but now I can never go back. If you are a non-believer or use primer on the reg., I highly suggest giving this one a go – you won’t regret it!
I can never go back to using foundation ever again after I found this. Laura Mercier has also ruined me for all other tinted moisturizers. At first, being a foundation person and having a pinkish tone to my skin, I wasn’t sure this tinted moisturizer would give me enough coverage. However, that was not the case.
The packaging doesn’t lie when it says, “lightweight flawless coverage,” because I really do feel flawless when I wear this stuff. Plus, it has sunscreen in it which is something that should be worn daily to keep your skin healthy & happy. I cannot recommend this stuff enough – no, literally, I keep on telling people to go and get it. I use the shade “porcelain.”
I went out on a limb purchasing this contour palette but I am so glad I took a chance on it. Not only do I use it to contour my face (who am I kidding; I try to contour my face), I use it as eyeshadow, and for highlighter on my face. I have always loved the products “It Cosmetics” makes and this is no exception. Plus, there is a handy guide for those who have no idea what to do when it comes to contouring (like me)!
Finally, something that actually covers the dark circles under my eyes. I love this “radiant creamy concealer” by NARS. This stuff is super lightweight and looks really smooth on my skin. Plus, it lasts throughout the day, which is something I can’t say for previous concealers I’ve tried. I use the shade “honey.”
I have never been a big lipstick person but I absolutely love this one by Stila. The best part is it stays put for hours on end. I would get one of these in every color if I could – but this shade of pink, Patina, is my favorite right now!
I love how long my lashes have grown since using this product on the reg. The best part, they are totally natural. Not only is this a healthy way to grow your lashes, it really works!
