8 Favorite Beauty Products

I know this is a little random, but I have people ask me about products I use sometimes, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite tried and true beauty products! I am someone who finds something I like and then I have a hard time changing after that. Some of these products have been in my make-up bag for years, because I just cant seem to quit them! So, let's just jump in! 

Clinique Beyond Perfecting + Concealer

I have been using this for around 2 years now and I LOVE it! It is a little on the more expensive side at 28.00 per bottle, but the bottle lasts me around 4-5 months. I have combination skin and I definitely like a more full coverage concealer. I use the color Alabaster, I am pretty pale, just an FYI. The applicator on this product is also really cool (kind of looks like a jumbo lipgloss wand). I don't know if I will ever quit using this product! You can buy it HERE

Batiste Divine Dark Dry Shampoo

I am going to be really honest with you guys for a second. I do not wash my hair every day. More like every 3 days. I love this dry shampoo! Not only does it give your hair extra volume, which I love. The Hint of Color collection from Batiste is perfect for people who have trouble getting the white powder residue out of their hair. My hair is so dark the hint of color works perfect for me! Fair warning though, it will make your your shower water brown when you wash your hair. Anyway, they sell this at most stores and you can buy it online HERE. It usually costs between 7.00-9.00 a bottle. The bottle lasts a while, unless you use it every day or for example both you and your husband use it! 

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer

Another not so cheap product at 25.00, but TOTALLY worth it! I have had one tube for over 6 months now. Which is pretty dang awesome! I started using this originally because my cuz, Erica is the most bomb makeup artist and she recommended it to me! I am obsessed. I mostly use this under my eyes to deal with that tired/dark circle problem that most people have. The great thing about this is that it doesn't crease or cake into the lines under your eyes. I use the color Light-Medium in this product. Oh yeah, and it's Vegan friendly! You can find it HERE

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

I swear I should be a spokesmodel for this product! I have at least 15 different colors and have been obsessed for about two years. They are extremely affordable at around 5.00 per tube! The thing I love most about this product is that it isn't drying to your lips, but still gives a soft matte finish. It also lasts ALL day! My dental hygienist couldn't even believe it! She had be write it down for her before I left the office because she had never seen a product stay on so well during a cleaning. My favorite shades are: Cannes, London, Dubai, and Berlin. They have way over 30 shaded to choose from and you can buy it HERE

Wheeler Saxon Labs Nanocleanse Deep Cleaning Acne Face Wash

I originally found this product because of my sister, Keller. She had been struggling with acne problems since college and this was the first product she found that made a difference in her skin, By difference I mean that it changed her life. This stuff is unbelievable. Her skin looked completely different within a few weeks of using it. Our whole family uses it now. It even helps with blackheads and everything! A tube costs between 25.00-35.00 depending on where you buy it. We buy ours off of Amazon (although as I am writing this it is unavailable for some reason). If you have trouble with acne, I encourage you to research this product and see if it sounds like a good fit for you! 

Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter

This is the product I have been using on my belly while little Miss Clarke is growing! It is pretty thick and I like that it doesn't really have much of a smell. I love that it is 99% natural product too. I just rub it on my belly before I go to sleep at night! Pretty affordable product at around 13.00 and I haven't felt like my skin has been dry or itchy (at least yet) during pregnancy. You can buy it HERE

Colour Pop Super Shock Blush and Highlighters

Another brand I found because of my awesome cousin. You might have heard of it because their lip products are the cheap knock off of the Kylie Jenner ones. This company rocks and not only do I like their lip stuff, I really like their blush and highlighters. They are only 8.00 each, which is super affordable and they last a long time! You can only order them online, but the company is great to work with. The blush color I use is Prenup and the highlighter I use is in the shade Lunch Money. You can buy it HERE

Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing & Texturing Powder

I know I am bias about all of these products, but I love big hair and this makes it possible! You just put some of this in your roots and rub it around. It definitely takes away the softness from the roots are of your hair, but I love how much volume this gives my hair. I am pretty much obsessed with VOLUME. I have used other brands of this type of product and this one is by far my favorite. It is around 16.00. You can buy them HERE

With love and all the pretty things,
