Makeup & Skin Care Favorites

Happy Friday friends! My Friday Favorites this week are all about makeup and skincare. Every year for Christmas I ask for the same exact thing, a gift card to Sephora. I love clearing out old product and replacing it with fresh stuff for the new year. So here are a few of my favorites, let me just say I have ALOT of favorites. But these are at the top of my list right now.

Naked Skin Foundation - Perfect coverage that leaves a dewy look on the skin. LOVE this stuff! It also has anti aging ingredients in it that is a great plus. I just wish it had an SPF in it. I use it with the Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush and you wouldn't believe the coverage. That brush is MUST!!

Smashbox Under Eye Brightener - This is one of my most favorite products EVER!! It is not a concealer. You put it underneath your eyes before your foundation and it gets rid of the bags under your eyes. It has a nice sheer, highlighted, dewy finish so I also like to put it anywhere I want highlighted. Eyebrow arch, cheek bones, top of nose etc.

Smashbox Foundation Primer - This product is amazing for tightening pores and helping makeup stay put. It makes your skin SO soft and a little bit goes a long way. I also use this on my lips before applying lipstick to help prevent cracking and to help the longevity of it.

Mac Fix+ Finishing Spray - Spray on your face when your makeup is all finished to help it stay put. I also love using this on my bare face when I am feeling dry.

Naked Eyeshadow Pallet - You can't go wrong with any of the Naked pallets. Best eyeshadow's ever.

Colour Pop Matte Lipstick in MIDI and Lippie Pencil in OH SNAP are a perfect nude, matte shade. I can never pull of bold lips so light pink nudes are my favorite. This color reminds me of the signature Kylie Jenner lip color.


I switch up my skin care routine a ton. I have acne prone skin but I also love anything that fights aging. So I Switch between using St. Ives Green Tea Scrub  + Nutrogena Pink Grapfruit Moisturizer  and Philosophy Purity Face Wash + Philosophy Anti-Wrinkle Miracle Worker. The anti-aging cream is pretty expensive but one jar lasts me a year and it really is amazing.
Once a week I use this Lush "Cup O Coffe" Face Mask to remove dead skin, tighten pores and brighten skin. I love anything Lush makes!
As far as removing my eye makeup before bed I use coconut oil with a baby wipe and it does an amazing job and makes my skin feel great without having to use chemicals.
I was going to include some of my hair favorites with these but I have a slight obsession with hair products that it will need it's own post all together. #hairstylistproblems.
Happy Shopping friends and have an amazing weekend! xo
