Valentine's Day Beauty Essentials!
Valentine's Day is approaching, that means all the cutest beauty products are appearing on shelves again! Don't miss out on all of these fabulous products, and make sure to get your hands on them while supplies last! I can already feel love in the air, but in the meantime here is a list of my Beauty Essentials for February 2018! xoxo
Real Techniques Brush Crush Set! Starting at $9.99
When it comes to makeup, I believe good brushes are the most important tool to achieving a flawless face. I am always searching for brushes that are affordable, great quality and really work! The Real Techniques brushes are a must-have in my freelance makeup kit!
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush! $7.50
I have been testing out Physicians Formula products for years, and so far I have not been disappointed by this company! Besides the fact the packaging is adorable, their makeup provides a radiant glow to the skin that lasts all day long!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Nude Matte Lipstick Set! $21.00
This sweet little set of 4 Matte Lipsticks is a Perfect Valentines Gift for any makeup lover. Anastasia's Matte Lipstick Set includes the perfect range of nudes and pinks that are flattering for any skin tone!
Maybelline never fails to amaze me when it comes to their variety of products. This 24 Hour Color Metal Tattoo is called Inked in Pink, and essential to creating a classic valentines day look! This product is available in a wide range of colors, drugstores, and a staple in my makeup bag!
MAC Cosmetics Little Pigments! $10.00
When I want a dramatic eye look that stands out, I always use a loose pigment eyeshadow. For best results, I recommend using this product with a flat eyeshadow brush, sprayed with Setting Spray or Mac Fix Plus. Gently pack the pigment onto the eyelids, apply over a shadow base for an intense color payoff!
Fenty Beauty Bomb Baby Mini Lip and Face Set! $23.00
When it comes to my girl rih-rih, she can do no wrong in my eyes, but when it comes to this collection she got it all the way right! When I tell you the Fenty Beauty Collection blew me away, that's an understatement! This Mini Bomb Baby Lip & Face Set is a steal at $23, I recommend trying this duo out to see for yourself!
Heart Defensor Highlighter Palette! $8.00
e.l.f Cosmetics is a brand I have always thought provided outstanding quality for the price. The last few years, they have really stepped their game up with the new variety of products they have to offer. While using the Heart Defensor Highlighter Duo I recommend spraying your brush wet before applying for maximum glow.
Sephora Collection: Bleeding Hearts Sponge Set! $16.00
Highlight & Contouring is my favorite step, and using little sponges like these from Sephora Collection are the best for blending out any harsh lines! I also recommend using these sponges wet, to bake under the eyes, and to create a clean, sharp contour!
Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water! $6.99
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water has to be my best-kept skin care secret over the last few months! It has really changed the game for my Skin Care Routine, and I highly recommend this product if you have not tried it! Use this with a cotton pad before and after washing your face & underneath a moisturizer for a flawless complexion!
During my last nail appointment, I was recommended by my nail tech to try out this new gel couture line from essie. After a week of wear and tear, I am extremely impressed with this product and how beautiful my manicure has lasted. This nail polish is high-quality, the finish is smooth & the color selection is great. I will definitely be using this product again soon!
If you are anything like me then you have random makeup scattered throughout the bottom of your purse too. This year I am working on getting organized, and this Sephora Collection Makeup Bag is a perfect start to getting control of my messy makeup situation!
Happy Valentine's Day!
