Recently I've gotten into quite the groove with my beauty/skin care routine. I've never been big on consistent routines, mainly because I love experimenting with new products. Don't get me wrong, I still looooove trying out different things, but lately it seems everything I've purchased in the beauty world has been a home run. Can't complain about that, now can I?
Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream || This stuff. Give it to me everywhere. Ok not everywhere, skip my t-zone. I rub this stuff on my cheeks and neck every night before bed, sometimes even under my makeup during the day if I'm feeling particularly parched. Kyle may or may not have used this stuff on occasion, it's that good.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir || Thanks to jolly ol' St. Nick, I finally got to give this beauty elixir a try. What is a beauty elixir you ask, I haven't a clue. You spray it on your face whenever you want and you instantly teleport into a peaceful spa. I was drawn to this stuff because I read that it acts like a toner (I LOVE toner) and due to my current state (pregnant) I can't use many of my favorites. I use this under both my day and night time moisturizers and really any other time I need an escape ;)
It Cosmetics Tightline Primer || This is a super recent purchase. I grabbed it from Ulta during my trip to North Carolina. Of course, I grabbed the waterproof formula of this eyelash primer. Not only does it prime your lashes for mascara, but it can even double as your eyeliner if used correctly. It's so intense that it can do the job of your mascara even on its on. Any mascara applied on top of this primer will be worth a million bucks, promise.
L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist || Admittedly, I purchased this brow gel because I was too cheap to splurge on this one. But, I've really enjoyed it! It is a great, quick alternative to fully filling in your eyebrows and it last all. day. long! The only drawback for me is I wish their color range was a bit more broad.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer || I've almost emptied out this container of concealer and will 100% repurchase it. I use it not only to conceal, but got it in a light enough shade to double as my highlighter. Its gooooood.
Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel || Every single night. This is one I'm sure I've mentioned before, but I'm obsessed. I've seriously had this jar forever and still have a ways to go before its empty. I like to keep mine in the refrigerator for a little extra something when I apply it under my eyes before bed. It is so refreshing and hydrating! I really notice a difference in my under eye the following morning. I highly recommend!
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush || This is my first ever Tarte blush! I got mine in the shade 'glisten' which is a shimmery peachy pink. I find myself constantly reaching for this stuff. The shimmer is subtle but enough to really wake your face up. I look forward to trying out new shades.
Sugar Lip Polish by Fresh || Alaskan winters make you do crazy things for a little hydration. I've been using this lip scrub nearly every day because my lips are so cracked and scaly. It enables my lip balm to get the most bang for it's buck by really scrapping away all the flaky skin. Love!
*This isn't photographed, but it must be mentioned... this under eye setting powder by elf. For the longest time I had no idea you were supposed to use a different powder to set your under eye makeup. Skeptical, I grabbed the cheapest stuff I could find and my world is forever changed! No creasing, lasts for ever and is as soft as a baby's bottom...everything you could want in your under eye makeup. #amiright?
