I’m excited to share a few of my favorite beauty products with you all in the new year. It’s a topic I haven’t touched much on and one I get a bunch of questions on! Truth be told, I’m no beauty connoisseur.. I’m a creature of habit and once I find something I like, it takes a lot of convincing to get me to spend money on something new! Especially in the beauty department. The good thing about that is, I can give you a full scale review of why I like a product… the bad thing, I don’t try a lot of new products.
My favorite spot to shop for most of my beauty supplies is Sephora, mostly because they carry all my favorite products in one store so I don’t have to hop from counter to counter or store to store to get what I need! This is a busy moms dream! I shop most of my hair care products, skin care, and makeup at Sephora so today I wanted to share with you my top buys and keep reading through to the bottom of this post for an epic giveaway!
Okay so I’m a no fuss girl when it comes to my entire beauty routine but especially my hair! I want to be able to spray and go… I want curls that last 2-3 days and hair that doesn’t hold all the oil and grease my scalp thinks it needs. With the exception of my shampoo and conditioner, I use 3 products on my hair through out the week and all come from Sephora! I start by spraying this IGK styling primer on after I’ve washed my hair. It’s the best for detangling and protecting against heat!
Most days that I wash my hair, I will blow dry it, it just depends on if I have time to air dry. If I do, that is preferred. Then I curl it! Here’s the trick to long lasting curls… Texture spray! It’s so important to get one that works well for your hair! I love the DryBar Texture spray! It’s light, goes on easy and works so well.
The last product I use on my hair is hair spray and I’ve loved this for years… like 8 years. I’ve branched out and tried others but I always come back to the Bumble & Bumble. I use this throughout the day if my hair needs a little touch up or lift!
I wash my face every night and I alternate between this Tata Harper cleanser and another favorite, Epicuran Citrus Cleanser. Both are great and ‘clean’ from sulfates which is important for my skin!
I use a mask almost nightly, depending on the day… either a charcoal mask or a sleeping mask. I’ve raved about this Kypris mask in other blog posts but I found one that I love almost equally for half the cost! This Dior mask has a similar makeup and texture and gives me that glow when I wake up too! Last step to my skin care is eye patches… I put these in the fridge and use them almost every morning (because kids).
I use 5 products in my daily makeup routine because I don’t have much time to get all dolled up. I need the basics to be quick and easy! I start with this Laura Mercier concealer, it’s my favorite and covers those under eye circles so well, then I move on to my tinted moisturizer which is what I use as my base ( I don’t like thick makeup). I’ve found that the Laura Mercier line not only works well with my sensitive skin, but it goes on light and stays on all day! I also use this bronzer from the line. The last two things I do are my eyeliner , this is my favorite because it actually really is waterproof and it works so well… and mascara and poof… I’m ready for the day!
So that wraps up my beauty routine! There are a few other brands I do use and love that aren’t carried by Sephora, like Epicuran and Kypris but those products I use for a long time and don’t purchase as often so it’s easy to hop over to a store that carries them. So here’s the exciting thing… I’ve partnered up with some of my other favorite fellow bloggers to give you a chance to win a $500 gift card to Sephora! Follow the instructions below to enter!
