Hello Lovelies!

I thought I would mix it up a little for March Madness and share some of my favorite beauty products. These are my holy grails, I lightweight freak out when I am running low on any of these products. First up: Primer.

 

1. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer: Pore Minimizing

This primer leaves my face feeling fresh, even and flawless. This formula blurs out any imperfections, mattifies shine and controls oil for up to 8 hours!

2. Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water + SPF 30

Once I discovered this product, I have refrained from using anything else. The consistency of this foundation reminds me of silk! I recently learned about this product having a built-in primer water that allows the foundation to glide on. I also have never broken out from this product even after accidentally sleeping with it on (opps!) I highly highly HIGHLY recommend trying this out.

These products work so well together. They compliment one another and work especially well with oily and dry skins. (Which is what I have)

3. Sephora Collection Pro Featherweight Powder Brush #91 & Sephora Collection Pro Featherweight Fan Brush #92

I have tried countless brushes, and I must say the Sephora Pro collection is a win in my book. The bristles stay in place and don't fall out. My powder and highlight are evenly distributed. And they are both super soft - which is a must for me. I recently discovered these and I can't wait to try more Sephora brushes.

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

This palette is life. I casually picked this up at the local Sephora, but apparently this palette is super hard to track down and has been sold out online for awhile now! I can totally see why, everything about this product is amazing. The variety of colors alone caught my attention but the reason I ended up buying this over the others was because the highlights are buildable, highly pigmented and long lasting.

5. And last but not least, Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay

I can guarantee, after a one time use with this product, you'll want to add this into your weekly skin routine. I loved the smell and texture right off the bat - but what I was most surprised with was how incredibly soft my skin was after. AND there are no parabens, sulfates or phthalates. I truly believe in this product and the funny thing is I got this for free at Sephora with my points! I kinda knew I would become obsessed though because I have used the Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Facewash from Origins since high school.

And thats it for beauty! I hope you you enjoyed this post <3
