STAY AT HOME BEAUTY
To be 100% honest I pretty much have an ongoing Sephora favorites list and I will for sure share them with you below but this season it’s just different. We just got final news that Texas schools will not be going back and my escapes to the hair and nail salons don’t seem like they will be coming very fast at all.
Among all this there is also a ton of uncertainty with finances, jobs, etc so I wanted to share a few “special” COVID picks for this time. Several of these products I have not yet tried but will be picking up while the spring sale event is going on!
Sol de Janeiro Samba 2-Step Foot Fetish Care $27 Now I already love their Bum Bum cream so when I saw they have a foot lotion and how badly I need a pedicure this was a no brainer!
ISLE OF PARADISE Self Tanning Drops $29 my favorite self tanner has sold out on Amazon and I can’t find a place to get it so I’ve been on the hunt for a new self-tanner and I’ve heard amazing things about this one where you just put a few drops in your favorite lotion to apply.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Face Mask – Rose – Moisturizing $6 No I have never tried the Sephora Face Masks but they are bestsellers and what a better time to try out a mask and look like a serial killer then when your entire family is home to scare the wits out of!
WANDER BEAUTY On-The-Glow Blush and Illuminator $42 Right now I still like to put on makeup especially on school days but I want quick and easy. This dual sided blush and glow stick looked very similar to the blush stick I have and use. A few quick swipes and ready for early multiplication.
GHD Curve 1.25″ Soft Curl Iron I get a LOT of questions on my hair and I give full credit to my curls to this and the next tool. This curling iron gets hot and stays hot for perfect curls that LAST! When my hair is wet I will dry with the Dyson Airwrap larger barrel curl attachments but on days that it’s not wet I “spruce up” my curls with this.
DYSON Airwrap™ Styler This VERY POPULAR (and pricy) tool set is seriously the top of the line but I love EVERYTHING about it. If you have heard how amazing the Dyson hair dryer is, guess what you get one of those attachments but you also get a round brush and curling attachments that style your hair as you dry it!! I got mine last December and I think it is worth every penny. Since the wand has several attachments this is also great for people who travel a lot. If you want to see it in action check out this IG TV video.
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo For Brunettes OMG I joke that my hair is 50% grey and although that might not be 100% correct this dry shampoo is my favorite when I have some roots showing. It not only give my hair a little lift but also blends in and covers those grays for the day.
Drybar Hold Me Hair Clips these clips are the only kind that will keep my super thick hair out of the way while I blow dry and style it.
Things I want to try:
CHARLOTTE TILBURY Magic Cream Moisturizer I have been using this moisturizer for several months now and needless to say it’s become one of my favorite products. The thick but silky feel is wonderful under makeup and my dry skin just soaks it up! I love also that this comes in multiple sizes (even mini) so if you don’t want to commit to a big one quite yet you can try it out first.
Peter Thomas Roth – 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches MAMAS LISTEN UP! For those of you that are not getting enough sleep (um aka almost everyone) these gel eye patches are the best that I have found to give me an immediate look less tired under eye lift. I love them so much I literally have gone through 4 tubs!
Sol De Janeiro Sol de Janeiro – Brazilian Bum Bum Cream My friend Jen gave me this lotion for my birthday a year ago and first I fell in love with the name and then the scent! When I found out that it also helps with reducing cellulite I got the BIG TUB! Then I found out they have a body wash, xx and more and now I want it all!
LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask as summer approaches this super moisturizing sleep mask for my lips is my go-to for dry lips, this is a great time to pick it up and add to those stay at home beauty routines.
Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Flawless Filter This makeup I have gone back and forth loving and I realized it’s because I enjoy wearing it most in the summer when I want a light glowy look. This gives the J Lo glow with a very light coverage but can be blended with your regular foundation or used as a highlighter.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation This foundation I got in the winter when I wanted/ needed more coverage for events and photoshoots. Since it adapts to your skin tone it became a quick favor of mine and I have it now in two shades for winter and summer. I wear colors 4 & 5 depending on my tan.
TOO FACED Lip Injection This has been my go-to gloss for years because it has that tingling pluming action plus it makes my lips a natural rosy color. Now if you don’t like that tingling feeling skip this one!
HOURGLASS Hidden® Corrective Concealer This creamy concealer was my replacement for the VERY expensive Cle de peau that just didn’t make sense to spend $75 on. Once I moved to this one I have been super happy on the coverage, texture and much better price! I use color natural
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz Even though it’s been well over a year since my last microblading I still have a great shape in my brows and just touch them up a bit with this pencil. If you want a more pronounced brow use short strokes with this pencil. The opposite end as a little spoolie to then brush in the color and done. I use color medium brown.
Charlotte Tilbury – Luxury Eyeshadow Palette Now I have SEVERAL eye palettes (yes I’m a makeup junkie) but this is the one I pull out when I want good pigment, a little glam and a good golden smoky eye. I have the golden goddess but have always been interested in Uptown Girl as well.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY Lip Lustre Lip Gloss If you haven’t realized by now I’m a big CT fan and although I own the popular pillow talk lipstick I don’t wear it very much, I’m a gloss kind of gal. CT makes two kinds that I love this Lip Lustre that is more of a traditional thicker gloss and the Collagen Lip Bath Gloss that has more of that plumping gloss feel (but with less intense tingle as the TooFaced one). I own Lip Lustre in Ibiza Nights and buying the pillow talk color // own Collagen Lip Bath in Rosy Glow and Refresh Rose
TOOLS & BRUSHES
the original beautyblender® I use a beauty blender for so many things so I always try and pick up a new one when I can find them on sale!
CHARLOTTE TILBURY Hollywood Complexion Brush When I’m not using my beauty blender I’m using this foundation brush that perfectly blends my CT foundation and the smaller angled head gets right around the nose and underage with ease.
