5 Must-Have Spring Beauty Products

5 Must-Have Spring Beauty Products

Spring has sprung!! And you know what that means…spring makeup is finally here!! First, I just want to say that I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup. When I do, I’ll put on everything except eyeshadow and eye liner. (I never wear eyeshadow because I’m terrible at putting it on!) Even though I don’t usually wear tons of makeup, I love watching makeup videos on YouTube. I follow about 15 beauty YouTuber’s religiously and love watching them do a smokey halo eye or hearing what their favorite go-to eye liners are.

Every year I go through a cycle. The cycle starts in September…when September rolls around, I get excited for smokey eyes and dark berry lips (or more truthfully, I can’t wait to watch my favorite YouTuber’s throw on their best brown smokey eye lol). I love wearing mauve-y shades of blush in the winter and occasionally throwing on a red lip. But when April rolls around and the flowers start to bloom and the air gets warmer…I get super excited for dewy skin, pinky-nude lips and bright pink blush. Since we’re already halfway through April (can you believe it?!) I thought I would share with you guys my 5 favorite spring beauty products that I think are must-haves for this time of year!

Holy Grail Skincare Products

Holy Grail Skincare Products

I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve done a beauty post on here! But that’s about to change because I really wanted to share with you guys my all time fave, holy grail skincare products! I was cleaning out my bathroom drawers the other day and was really focusing on getting rid of any skincare products that I didn’t like or just didn’t use anymore. So now, all I’m left with are the products I can’t live without. Some are affordable and some are more high-end…I tend to splurge on moisturizers and save on face wash.

All of these products are geared toward people with dry skin. My skin is constantly dry and I need to moisturize it at least 3 times a day. I also have a very tiny bit of texture on my cheeks so I like to exfoliate at least 3 times a week to keep that texture at bay. Anyway, let’s get talkin’ about skincare! Please let me know in the comments below what your holy grail skincare products are…I would love to test out some new ones!

Best Drugstore Foundations for Dry Skin

Best Drugstore Foundations for Dry Skin

To be honest, I’ll take a good dewy, inexpensive, long-lasting drugstore foundation over high end foundation any day of the week. There are so many great drugstore foundations out there, so I wanted to dedicate a blog post to them.  I feel like my skin changes color a lot (aka getting tan and losing that tan) so I have to buy like 4 different shades of foundation every year. Since I can’t really justify buying 4 different bottles of high end foundation a year…I buy 4 different bottles of $10 drugstore foundation. As you can tell from the title, these foundations I’m going to be talking about are all for dry skin. My skin (bless it’s heart) is always extremely dry and sometimes dull looking. So the foundations I use are dewy and geared toward dry skin. Dew (I’m sorry, I just had to use this pun) you want to know what the best drugstore foundations are?! Then just keep reading!

(You’ll pay like $45 for something that would originally have cost you $75). I have combed through the Sephora and Ulta websites and picked 10 of the best holiday beauty gift sets that I think are super fun, cute, and special. Buy one of these for your mom or sister or yourself…because you deserve it!

5 Makeup Brush Hacks Every Beauty Lover Should Know

Did you know…that makeup brushes…don’t only have to be used…just for putting on makeup…? Well I used to not know that!

Now, I didn’t invent these hacks, but I do want to share them with you guys because I think they’re pretty awesome. I hope you enjoy reading this post!

Sephora Hits and Misses: Highlighter Edition

makeup_brushes

Welcome to my new series…Sephora hits and misses! Each time I post about Sephora hits and misses I will focus on a specific category, so for example this first post is the highlighter edition and maybe next post will be the foundation edition. Get it?! I hope you find these posts helpful because I know when I walk into Sephora, I get so overwhelmed with all the different choices they have. Everything in the store looks like it would be amazing…unfortunately looks are sometimes deceiving (looking at you Sephora PRO highlighter palette). Hopefully this post helps narrow things down for you! I for one, don’t want to spend over $30 on a highlighter that’s going to make me either 1) look like a greasy hot dog or 2) look like I have no highlighter on because there’s no color payoff. I did a bunch of research and read tons of reviews to make this post as accurate and helpful as possible! Happy highlighter hunting!
