Hi loves! January has come and gone and now it’s time for my monthly roundup of beauty favorites! This month features a wide variety of beauty products at all price ranges, from drugstore to high end makeup!
Nivea In Shower Smoothing Moisturizer in Coco Butter ($6)
My skin is almost always dry, but this winter it’s been especially bad! I’ve been using this Nivea In Shower Smoothing Moisturizer which is a lotion that you put on in the shower and then rinse off so that you don’t get the sticky feeling of regular lotion! It leaves my skin super hydrated all day long!
Korres Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturiser ($42)
I used this primer in my Romantic Date Night Makeup tutorial on YouTube and I love it! (If you missed the video, you can watch it here!) It has all natural ingredients and it works both as a primer and a moisturizer! The Korres Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturizer also works to hydrate and plump your skin!
Pür No Filter Blurring Photography Primer ($33)
This new No Filter Blurring Photography Primer from Pür is absolutely made for Instagram-ready makeup! It helps to illuminate and brighten your skin before you put on foundation. (You can also add a drop to your foundation for a super glowy finish!)
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector ($41)
Unlike the traditional highlighter, you can use this mixed with your moisturizer, primer, or foundation to give you an all over dewy glow. Of course you can also use it as you would regular highlighter, added just a few drops to your cheekbones. I love the soft radiance that this product has it looks entirely natural while enhancing your face. I like the Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal.
Benefit Dandelion ($29)
Benefit’s Dandelion Blush has been one of my go-to blushes lately! I love the light baby pink color adds just enough warmth and glow to your face! Not to mention that the packaging is absolutely adorable!
Makeup Forever Pro Light Fusion Undetectable Luminzer ($39)
If you’re just testing the waters with highlighter, this Pro Light Fusion Undetectable Luminizer from Makeup Forever is the way to go! It’s super sheer and gives you just the slightest hint of rose gold shimmer that brightens your face (but you can totally build it for a more intense highlight!)
Dose of Colors Gold is the New Black Supreme Glow Highlighter ($28)
The Dose of Colors Gold is the New Black Supreme Glow Highlighter is a really gorgeous yellow gold. I use it with a damp brush for a high impact effect.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation ($39)
Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation is an amazing full coverage water-based foundation. It has lots of antioxidants and is SPF 15. I never leave the house without some sunscreen on my face, but a bit of extra SPF coverage is never a bad thing! This is a super light formula and it isn’t buildable, so I use it for days when I want my skin to shine!
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup ($40)
This foundation is totally made for the girl on the go! It’s a cult favorite foundation with beautiful natural finish that seriously lasts all day! Through meetings, running errands and hours of editing videos, this Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation doesn’t budge! It’s my go to for events since it’s full coverage but looks natural.
Kopari Lip Love ($10)
I always have a lip balm in my purse, and lately this Kopari Lip Love lip balm has been my go to! It’s made with high quality coconut oil and natural ingredients that are seriously hydrating! Since I wear drying lipsticks so often, this is an absolute essential for soft lips!
Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant ($29)
While matte, opaque lipsticks have been all the rage lately, there’s really nothing like a good sheer lipstick. My current favorite is the Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant. It gives your lips just enough color for a soft, natural effect that’s perfect for a romantic makeup look! (Especially with Valentine’s day coming up!)
Milani Bahama Beige ($5)
Not only is this Milani lipstick wildly affordable at $5, the color is beautiful! Bahama Beige is one of my favorite nude hues for when I’m going for a no makeup makeup look or when I want to put more focus on my eyes but want just a little bit of color on my lips.
KL Polish in Brick Sidewalk and Zoey ($9)
One of my fellow beauty YouTubers, Kathleen Lights started a nail polish line, KL Polish, and it’s amazing! Zoey and Brick Sidewalk are definitely my two favorite shades. The polish is long lasting and looks beautiful on!
