My Beauty Must Haves

I received a few requests on Makeup 💄 Tutorials.. the older I get the more I get into makeup and you rarely see me without a bright lip on. So, I’m going to be working on some videos and step by step how to’s.. my routine takes the most 5 minutes ! I thought I would start with my beauty faves that I use every single day. These products are all by Yves St Laurent. The primer and foundation is so light and natural but gives me a silky smooth finish. The brand is pricey but I think it’s worth every penny! I also try to hold off for Lord and Taylor’s friends and family and Sephora’s Beauty insider sales to receive discounts.

Touch Eclat Blur Primer I love how this primer has specs of gold inside it. It blurs imperfections. Smooth on leave on for 30seconds then apply foundation. $52

Touch Eclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation with Broad Sprectum SPF 22 so I never get the Rudolph the red nose reindeer look. Very light no cakey looks here 💁$58

Touch Éclat Radiant Touch Highlighter (I use number 2 luminous ivory for fair to light complexions) perfect to brighten up under your eyes and around the brow bone. It also conceals any imperfections. $42

Rouge Pur Couture Is my go to Bright Lip 💄👄 I love how this makes my eyes pop and brightens my look! $37

These are my faves. I use them every morning on a fresh face. However, Everyone’s skin is different! Stay Beautiful ! Xo

BirchBox Favs

Here are a few of my birchbox favs.. I subscribed a few months ago on a friends recommendation and I’m soooo happy I did. These are a few of my fav samples that I dug so much And purchased the full size!

Model&Co Party Proof lipstick: I typically wear MAC and Yves St. Laurent lipstick but when I got a sample of Model&Co lipstick I fell in love. It goes on super smooth, it’s super hydrating and it smells terrific! (Unlike many other brands)I received the sample in neutral and I usually don’t do neutral. But this one was different and I liked it so much I bought the trio that comes in red, pink, and orange since I love a bold lip!

Vasanti Brighten up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator exfoliating cleanser a Enriched with Papaya, microcrystals and Aloe- I love how this cleanser scrubs and exfoliates my face. You massage it onto your face for a few minutes after splashing some water on it. I just purchased a full size version since I used my sample up and I find myself missing it! It’s definitely going to be part of my morning routine!

Beauty protector protect and detangler – I love this detangler/heat protector. I use hot tools on my hair almost everyday so I def need to use a heat protector. It smells amazing and a lil bit goes along way! Spray it onto damp hair after shampooing and conditioning and comb thru!

Benefit Puff off under instant eye gel- I love this stuff! I get a lot of under eye puffiness and I hate it! I have purchased tons of eye creams and products that do not work. It has a cool iron tip applicator that you use to smooth out your under eye bags! You can wear it under or over your makeup. I see results immediately! Def my fav new product. And the best part is I received it free using my birchbox points!
