My Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products

2016-07-21_13.49.48

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! It’s been awhile since I did a beauty post, and even though I blog more about fashion, I still love makeup and hair! So today I want to share my top 5 favorite beauty products. These are the items I use pretty much everyday. I hope that you like them 🙂

1. Spray and Play Hairspray

Having short hair is pretty easy, but volume is the key to a chic messy style. Spray and Play by Big Sexy Hair has never failed to give my fine hair volume. It lifts it up and holds without ever being too crunchy or weighing it down. My hair is actually quite fine and thin naturally. When it’s all done up I like to joke that it’s 80% hairspray 🙂

2. Anew Vitale Cleanser

I love Avon and have always used it since I started wearing makeup (I actually used to sell it lol). Vitale is a great cleanser because it gets the job done without being too harsh. The moisturizer is also great too.

3. e.l.f. Eye Primer

This might be the most beautiful accident to happen in my beauty regimen. I was looking for a cheap eye primer and bought this e.l.f. primer in sheer. It actually looks like a pale pink, which complements my fair skin nicely. Anyway, my dark circles are pretty bad and I didn’t have any concealer. I decided to dab a little of this underneath my eyes, and now I look like a new woman. It seriously covers and brightens under my eyes better than anything I’ve ever used before–for two dollars. Go figure. I don’t know how many different shades there are, so if you’re interested you might want to look it up to find one for your unique skin tone.

4. Tarte Silk Amazonian Clay Eye Liner

I got this Tarte eye liner as a Christmas present, and it is my favorite! I am a huge eye liner addict, and the cat eye is my signature. This liner goes on so smooth and is highly pigmented. The end has a built in sharpener and blender to create a smoky look. I’ve already used up the black, but the brown and navy liners are subtle and flattering for everyday wear.

5. Doll 10 Lipstick/Lip Gloss Duo

2016-07-21_13.48.28

This was a birthday present that I am so thankful for. The Doll 10 duo comes with lipstick on one end and lip gloss on the other. They are neutral colors that give just enough tint to make my lips look bright. The first one (the top shade on my hand) is French Beige/Buff, and the second one (bottom shade) is Baby Doll/Bella. The lipsticks are super creamy and buildable in color. They don’t dry out my lips at all. And the lip gloss is in no way sticky. In fact, my only complaint would be that the lip gloss isn’t sticky enough to last a long time. But I wear these everyday and love them.

Trending: Fall Makeup

I hardly ever feature makeup in my fashion posts. I’m not quite sure why because I do love it. I actually used to be a makeup sales representative.

Like fashion, makeup often follows the seasons. Colors and trends go in and out of style, and it can be hard to keep up with it all! I personally like to stay classic with my makeup. I also like to take my complexion into account because not every cosmetic will flatter my skin tone (this is true for everyone).

So I have made some collages on different makeup trends and fun looks to try this fall. I hope you like them and find some inspiration for your daily routine 🙂

Berry Lips

Dark berry is a great color for fall, and it is easier for most skin tones to pull off than straight up red. Some of you might go bold with a dark berry lipstick or lip crayon. Others might prefer to keep it subtle with a tinted lip balm and a berry gloss layered lightly on top (my favorite daily go to). It is an easy way to add color to your face; just make sure to keep it simple with your eye makeup so nothing looks overdone.

Fall Nails

Surprisingly, pale colors are still going strong this season. Variations of blue, mint, and teal are the most popular. Other light neutrals such as gray and beige are in style. And of course, classic colors such as berry and black are perfect for the cooler autumn months.

Nude Eyes

Ever since Urban Decay’s “Naked” pallet blew up the makeup industry, many other cosmetic companies are hoping on board the neutral train. There are so many pallets to choose from–ranging from classic taupes, to bronzes, and even smokier hues (plus, a lot of these pallets are more affordable). I personally love this trend because nude colors can be blended easily for daily use, no matter what the occasion.

I hope you all love these looks! Remember that makeup is like painting for your face. Always feel free to try new looks because it can always be washed off if it doesn’t look right. And remember the golden rule–makeup should never hide who you really are. It should only be used to highlight the natural beauty God already gave you!
