Hey sweet friends! I thought it was time to do an updated Beauty Favorites Post. I hope you are doing AMAZING.

It has been a Busy season of life…. Maybe a little crazy.. haha. Our company is launching in Canada soon and we have incredible new products on the horizon. I got to attend our meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah and had the BEST time! I am so fortunate to be surrounded by incredible people and so excited for the days ahead! Being on the advisory board at juvenae is so special and helping with product development is SO fun!

Let me know if you have any questions and be sure to Subscribe to my blog to stay connected!

My makeup usually is bronzer, lots of Lash, and a pinky nude lip! Let’s break it down shall we?!

PREP

the best moisturizer EVER.

I CANNOT stress to you how much my skin LIVES for this anti-aging cream. IT IS GOLD. Made from ethically derived stem cell proteins it is the BOMB and repairs levels deep. Smaller pores, diminished redness, improved texture, disappearing scars, breakouts… you name it. I can’t live without it! You can check it out HERE. It last me two months so a little goes a long way!

BEST SPONGE

OK….. I admit I am picky about sponges… and this ELF Total Face Sponge is amazing. Wet it so it’s damp and beat your foundation to perfection. You can find it on Amazon HERE.

CONTOUR

Honey

I love a contour stick and this is Forever my favorite. Creamy, blendable, stays put. Blend it in with a brush and glow!

SETTING POWDER

Airspun Loose Face Powder

This CLASSIC reminds me of my grandmother Shaw. It has a distinct smell to it that takes you back. I have LOVED baking with setting powder for years. Especially on bridal clients and when you want to set the heck out of your makeup. If you are oily, this is MUST.

It is SUPER easy….. using the damp sponge I used for my foundation, press into the powder. (I like to take the top part off so it’s fully open.) Press on your highlighted areas… not too much under your eyes and then leave it alone for 5-10 minutes… I like to dry my hair while its on. Brush access away and BAM you are poppin and SET.

EYESHADOW

Kara Duo Eyeshadow

I love these Kara Duo eyeshadow palettes! They have great pigment and have super fun and fresh options. I am a sucker for good warm toned shades. They really look great on everyone and are perfect for a bronze, smokey look. You usually can find these at Marshalls too! Score.

BROWS

Kat Von D Super Brow

I am pretty picky about brow products, they have to STAY on. And not get rubbed off by one of my four year olds. Haha. This Kat Von D Super Brow is LEGIT. This little pomade pot will last forever and a little goes a long way.

I use the shade Graphite

LASHES
