If one word could sum up the first few days of 2018, it would probably be “brrrr.” I am not interested in dealing with this cold one bit, but unfortunately there’s no other choice until I can plan a trip to warmer temps. Instead of fighting it, I’ve picked some luxe beauty buys to help get me through (and fix my dry skin in the meantime).
This month I replaced a couple of key products (new highlighter, new brow product), and also found a new favorite fragrance that will stay feminine and light all day long. Shop my favorite recent buys below!
This month is absolutely flying by. I was in New York this past weekend for work, heading up to Newport, RI for this coming weekend, then off to Baltimore for another work trip. Whew! That being said, having the right beauty products is more than essential – I can’t be worrying about running out of my favorite mascara, or having breakouts on my face. Drum roll, for my favorite buys to get your hands on this month.
I haven’t done a ton of beauty shopping lately, mostly sticking to the routine items. However those become favorites for a reason, so I’m sharing a few favorites that will fit right into your everyday beauty routine!
I’m going back to the basics with my beauty purchases this week! I have some drugstore finds that are comparable to some of my designer favorites, and their prices make them so necessary. I’ve found an amazing new under-eye concealer that will hide all evidence of a late night, a CC cream that’s light yet covers, and a couple of new brow products I now can’t live without.
New month, new beauty finds. With pool parties and beach weekends approaching fast, it’s so important to have a nice waterproof mascara on hand. For vacations, I like to throw on a bit of powder, curl my lashes, and do a layer of mascara to keep myself looking fresh faced and not like I just woke up. That being said, I do have a horror story of an inexpensive waterproof mascara leading to my eyelashes falling out (yikes!), so I’m happy to have found a brand I love and can trust.
We have a little over a month left in spring, and I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone by! I always seem to rush this season along, eager for summer to arrive. This month, I’m enjoying finding some good go-to products that will last me through summer. Something to keep my blonde just that, a new go-to body wash (that is a total steal), and moisturizer that will do big things for burnt out (literally) skin.
My favorite month is upon us, and the weather is finally being less windy-freezing and more breezy-balmy. What’s not to love? As the weather changes, so do our beauty needs – less focus on moisturizing, and more on getting that perfectly dewy look. Shop a few of my favorite beauty purchases for April.
While I haven’t been big on buying too many new products lately, there are a few that I’ve found (or re-purchased) and really adore. When I like something, I’m so loyal to it! It may be fun to try out new products from time to time, but there’s nothing like having the go-to ones you love. This mascara is a definite “forever” find that I can’t ever see myself tiring of. Read on for some fun buys (that won’t cost a fortune).
Certain products are just worth the splurge. While I rarely buy a dress or a pair of shoes at full price, beauty products are just something you will rarely get a good deal on. I admit that I like doing a bit of cost analysis – how long is this going to last me? and how much is it? – when it comes to buying makeup and other beauty products. A face cream that may be $40, but will last 6 months. A lipstick I’ll mostly wear on special occasions or nights out should probably have a more reserved price.
