Switched up my routine and added in some N E W beauty favorites … others, my tried-and-true… Nevertheless, wanted to share my latest BEAUTY picks with you all. From hair, make up, and skincare, and everything in between…
Shop my Latest Beauty Favorites:
Face Make Up : Normally, I’m not a full-faced makeup kinda gal… but this HIGHLIGHTER is the holy grail on days I need a little extra glow. I’ll combine it with either THIS or THIS, and Set it with a little POWDER with SPF for safe measure! On shoot days I’ll pop on some of this MASCARA for a little volume and the BEST CREAM BLUSH in LYCHEE for a little rosy glow.
Lips : my go-to lippie… this LIP OIL is a current fave. However it ALWAYS sells out, so THIS is the next best thing. I stock up and snag in alllll the colors… then proceed to hide from Chase and Cambi. This GLOSS IN PEONY is another tried and true and a new find with the perfect hint of color is THIS.
Brows : I swear by THIS STUFF… like stranded on an island and can only take one thing with me kinda swear… This serum has brought fluff, fullness, and life back to my once over-plucked arches. Fill in with a little PENCIL and Voila!
SPF : COVER, COVER, COVER. I can’t harp enough. As a Florida native, take it from me… these are my go-to SPF picks because you can pull them off as makeup too… BODY LOTION, (RE) SETTING POWDER, GLOW SCREEN, VITAMIN C + SPF, FACE SPF, SPF FOR THE KIDDOS. Wear your damn SPF … PLEASE. PS: Beautycounter SPF is equally as legit…and a safer profile…you just need to layer with makeup if you need some coverage.
Tools : the key to THIS GADGET…. consistency! I use every morning and have noticed more lifting, toning, and definition in my face and neck. Disclaimer: I don’t love the gel, so I typically opt for an alternative… My gal Kim at the KURR MEDSPA recommended THIS. For those puffier mornings, I will grab an ICE ROLLER or GUASHA. Check out my ‘Beauty’ highlight for a full Guasha tutorial.
Body : I love to do a good exfoliating at least once a week… this BODY BRUSH is effective + affordable. I also LOVE this SCRUB, and THIS SCRUB….and both THIS and THIS for body oils. Also linking up a great SCENT that I’ve used for years. Another old school no fail…good ole’ AQUAPHOR…think heels plus socks and a good nightly SLUGGING.
Hair : I have Nonnie to thank for this thick mane… it’s been long. it’s been short. and everything in between. As of late, I’ve been loving THIS BRAND. Their SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER, and TEXTURE SPRAY are my favorites. A bit of a splurge on price, but totally worth it’s weight in (hair) gold… IMO. My hair stylist, Abby from Bobby Cooper salon, introduced me and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Skincare : Okay… admittedly, I could write a novel on all the things I’ve tried, loved, didn’t love, etc… But I’ve narrowed this segment down to my tried-and-true. Products I love. Products that work best for me. And products I use just about each day….
BEAUTYCOUNTER. I started using THIS LINE when I was pregnant with Calvin (circà 2016)… I’d say it encompasses about 60 percent of my skincare routine. Outside of their product working ridiculously well for me, the safety profile, branding, and fact that all BC is pregnancy and nursing safe speaks volumes. Some of my faves are the SUPREME CREAM (ANTI-AGING rivals La Mer), No. 1 FACE OIL, All Bright C+ Serum, Antioxidant Soft Cream to name a few. And while in my perfect world, all my products would be as clean as BC….I have incorporated some other lines that offer things BC doesn’t….yet…and I’ve been loving for quite some time. For example, Colleen Rothschild GLYCOLIC PEEL PADS, HYDRATING MASK, MICROMINERAL SCRUB…and here recently OIL NO. 9…..
