Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation
For me, nothing in the beauty world is worse than trying to put on a full face of make up on dry skin! It definitely begins with skincare and proper moisturizing, but sometimes that doesn’t even help! This foundation has been a game-changer! It is just the right amount of “dewy” to avoid that flakey look that sometimes happens when applying foundation in dry weather. The color selection is pretty awesome, and I was able to find my perfect shade pretty easily. I get compliments on my skin every time I wear it, so if you’re looking for a new foundation to make it through to the humid months arrive, definitely give this one a try!
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder
This is definitely a splurge, but what a difference a good setting powder makes! I use this to set anywhere that I put concealer (under eyes, forehead, nose, upper lip and chin) and then use a big fluffy brush to spread it all over my face and neck. This powder does as it’s name says...makes you look flawless! It really is hard to find a non-powdery looking powder especially with dry skin, so I’d say this one is worth the money
Let’s be real...I don’t get to wash my hair (let alone even shower) everyday. And really, you shouldn’t wash your hair everyday anyways! But this spray has been such a help in giving my thin, post-partum hair life! When I do wash my hair, I will usually put a little gel and spray this wave spray into it before throwing it into a braid or two. When I take it out, my hair smells awesome and has some body and wave to it! You really only use a few sprays each time, so while the price might be a little high, it has lasted me quite awhile.
Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream
After Taso was born, the dark circles and bags under my eyes were getting real! I had heard good reviews from several YouTubers about this so I decided to give it a shot. What a difference! You can instantly see the brightening effect that this eye cream has, and it helps my eye make up and concealer go on way smoother. I really only use it in the mornings, and you need the tiniest amount! Needless to say, I will be repurchasing this bad boy whenever I run out!
Ok, this is my only “non-beauty” item on this list, but being healthy contributes to beauty so I have it in this list. Thieves is the Young Living Essential oil that helps battle colds and bacteria, which is why it has its own line of cleaning products that it is used in! I diffuse this oil every single day in our house, and use the Thieves Roll On whenever we go out! I feel confident that it makes a difference, and it smells awesome! This is an oil that I am never without!
Young Living Lavender Lip Balm
In past years, I was always so excited to wear my dark, vampy lip colors, but always ended up rethinking it because my lips were just always too dry. I ended up just skipping wearing a lip color all together which was a bit frustrating since it often completes a look for going out. This lip balm is amazing! It smells wonderful, and I have not had one instance of my lips cracking or even feeling chapped! I use it in the morning and night (and throughout the day as needed) but applying at night has definitely made a huge difference. I just ordered the two other scents as well to stock up! These are super affordable and I am so glad that I discovered them!
