Hi! I feel like I have been so MIA lately. The holidays were crazy, Troy’s been crazy busy with work, and we all have been sick for the past month or more it seems like! Blah. Hopefully things start settling down here soon. I wanted to talk to you guys about some of my current favorite makeup products from Shine Cosmetics that I have been using the past little while.
A few months ago, I put on an influencer night with some of my girlfriends, and Shine was one of our biggest sponsors and contributors. That was the first time I had heard of them, and since then, I have been using their LipLast. I like that it wears well without drying my lips out.
Does anyone else seem like they are always on the hunt for the perfect brow kit/color/application? I know I am. I find myself switching between products often, not being completely satisfied with one product. Recently I was introduced to Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques. This is a Utah based company that focuses on providing us women with makeup that is actually healthy for us. It is made with natural and organic ingredients. It is also cruelty free and EU Certified, which means their products go above and beyond the US cosmetic standards.
The weather here in Utah has been SO nice lately, almost reaching 70 during the day. We have spent a lot of time outside, playing with neighbors and at the park. I always feel the spring cleaning bug as soon as the weather changes and want to sell everything I own and replace my whole wardrobe. Is anyone else that way? I’ve rounded up some clothes, accessories, and makeup that I have had my eye on the past few weeks, and I’m sharing my faves!
These Qupid slides are on my already purchased list, haha. You can find them for as cheap as $10 on Amazon! They come in multiple colors, too.
It’s finally Friday, YAY. It has been quite a long week, with not a lot of family time (re: none), so I’m so looking forward to 4pm tomorrow when we can spend some time together! It is so hot here in Arizona, I think Sunday will be spent in the mountains, actually does AZ even have mountains? Regardless, it will be spent somewhere COOLER. Here are some of my recent FAVORITE things!
- L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation– this new product is AMAZING! Good luck finding it in stores, I went on a wild goose chase conquering 15 stores to find it, and found the last one in my color, haha. You’d be better off ordering online and using Ulta coupons.
2. ColourPop Lippie Stix in Crumpet– no explanation needed, perfect for summer!
3. Jo Malone Wild Bluebell– you can’t go wrong with Jo Malone!
I love a good makeup brush, and Morphe is one of my favorite brands. You honestly DO NOT need to spend a ton of money to get great brushes! Their Elite Collection is currently 40% off while supplies last. Here are some of my favorites…
The E31 Deluxe Flat Buffer — what I use to get a full coverage look! Also great for building.
The E58 Angled Buffer Powder/Contour Brush.
The E34 Tapered Blush Brush.
The E43 Flat Brow Brush.
The E14 Oval Shadow Brush…great for building, also!
I am excited to do my first “Monday Must-Have’s” post today. Each Monday (hopefully), I will share a few things I am currently loving. These things could be fashion related, beauty related, food, things for Saylor…pretty much anything. Today I’m going to go in the BEAUTY direction.
-First things first, my favorite current obsession, the Makeup Eraser. My sister told me about this and it sounded like a lazy girls dream. You get it wet and wipe your face with it, and it removes all makeup. No soap or face wash needed. GLORIOUS! It is machine washable and you get tons of use out of it. I use it about 4 times between each wash. I bought mine at Sephora.
