Favorite Beauty Products In My Makeup Bag This Week!

Posted by Mary Elizabeth on

It's Friday!!! Yay..I don't know about you all, but I am so excited about the weekend! I am going to have a jam packed, busy weekend for sure! Sunday we have a surprise shoot that we will be doing and we cannot wait for you ladies to see!

So, most of you know that I love makeup or any beauty product that can enhance your natural beauty. I have not splurged on makeup or beauty products in quite some time! So, the other day I went a litttttttttle crazy in Sephora.

But, luckily I am obsessed with everything I bought and am super excited to share these products with you all in case you want to give them a try as well. I am only 23 years old, but I have always been told you should start taking care of your skin at an early age and make it a habit to have a skin care routine. I will admit, lately I have gotten lazy with keeping up a skin care routine. So, I wanted to try out some products and get into a habit of making time for my face and skin. I found this package that came with a morning and night time serum as well as some moisturizer that the Sephora employee strongly recommended. So far, I am ABSOLUTELY loving it! I can already feel a difference. It is by Ole Henrikson. I had honestly never heard of it until I recently purchased this set, so I was skeptical at first. But, the serum has collagen boosting components and potent vitamin C that helps to brighten and smooth out the skin. The moisturizer also has anti aging components in it as well.

I have been using the morning serum first, and I let it dry and set into my skin for a few moments. Then, I do the moisturizer next and also let that sit for a moment. Lastly, I put my primer on and then do my makeup as I normally would. They also make under eye cream, but I am waiting to try that because I do not want to throw too many new products on my face all at once. But, so far this kit is a for sure winner! I will post a picture and pricing information under this in case you ladies are curious!

I chose his "3 little wonders package." Now, it is somewhat pricey, but it is seriously worth it. I do not make a habit of spending more than $40 on beauty products, but it is nice to splurge every once in a while, because you only have one face and you want to take care of it and make time for yourself when you can.

The next thing I got was a new lipstick. I was wanting something more peachy nude. So, I opted to buy a more high end nude lipstick and then went and bought a cheap drugstore darker nude lip liner to match. The lipstick I chose was by "Too-Faced" in the color "Naked Dolly." It is super creamy and smooth and I love it when paired with any slightly darker brown/nude  lip liner!

Next, I wanted to try a new foundation because I was running low on the one I had and I remember seeing numerous YouTube reviews on the HD Makeup Forever stick foundation that supposedly gives you an airbrushed look after application. I have to say, so far it is pretty awesome! Use a primer first, then a brush to apply the foundation. When you first swipe it on your face it will show all of your pores and you will first think, "What have I bought!" But, then as you blend it into the skin, almost like magic it literally blurs everything. It is slightly amazing. Make sure to you a good setting powder before finishing up to set the foundation in place. But, it is awesome!

 Lastly, I decided to purchase a new eyebrow defining gel by the one and only, Anastasia Beverly Hills, sold at Sephora. I recommend this brand for whichever type of eyebrow look you are going for! I also purchased the eyebrow defining brush that comes with it. I love it! It gives you a super clean and defined eye brow look!
