A Little Beauty

Good evening, beauties! This is the first week of #beautywednesday and I am so excited! This weeks beauty blog is featuring 5 of my favorite beauty products! In case you missed my blog schedule on my Instagram story, Mondays are #StyleMondays (a style post + details & alternative options), Wednesdays are #BeautyWednesdays (anything beauty), and Fridays are #FashionFridays (anything from clothing + jewelry + accessories!) Every post will go live at 4pm those days! I hope y'all are just as excited as I am! 

Now on to the good stuff. These have been my favorites lately and heres why:

 

 1) Lorac - Cue The Confetti: Highlighter & Blush Palette  I can't get enough of this palette! I use the brown shade "Spotlight" to bronze and sometimes use it as a light contour color as well! It has a light shimmer to it, which is always nice! I also love the bottom right shade, "Vivid". This is such a beautiful blush! Dust a small amount on the apples of your cheeks and you're good to go! I purchased mine at Ulta and it is no longer available, but it is on Ebay: you can purchase it  here .

 2) E.L.F. Poreless Face Primer  THIS IS AMAZING. Not kidding. When I started using this, it was right before Thanksgiving and my family was so curious as to how my face looked so smooth. Long story short, both of my sisters now use it and love it as well! This product is so smooth. I have combination skin and I usually have issues with product clinging to my dry spots, or getting too oily in my t zone. This primer works great for me and I totally recommend it! Best part? It's only $6! I got mine at Target, but you can also order it  here.

 3) Artis Elite Mirror Oval 6 Brush  2 words: Worth it! (Another reason why my foundation goes on so smoothly, along with the E.L.F primer). I was unsure at first because of the price, but I am so glad I got it. On my old blog, I mentioned my beauty blender as one of the things being left behind in 2016 and it sure has! This brush is perfect for applying foundation + concealer. Personally, I think it is definitely worth the splurge. I got mine here.

 4) Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder  If you know me, then you know I watch countless makeup tutorials on youtube daily. This is definitely a product that is used and recommended by so many people! I finally got it for christmas and love it. I have dark circles under my eyes (born with them; runs in the fam yay!) and this does a pretty great job in neutralizing the tones under my eyes! This product just locks everything in to place, which is great! You can purchase it  here .

 5) Tarte - Maracuja Oil  So, I get Ipsy bags sent to me monthly, and this was one of my goodies! This oil is to be applied at night and you're face is so smooth/ feels so hydrating the following morning! I love using Tarte products, so I was so excited to try this when I received it last month! This oil claims to target skin concerns, and provides moisture to the skin and I definitely feel that it does! If you would like to try it out, you can get it  here!  My next bag will be here January 14th; so if you would like me to review that bag leave a comment below!
