February Favorites

It has been a minute. Life has been hectic, but all in a good way. It is wedding season and I have been a busy bee, speaking of bees, HELLO SPRING! I love the sun and I even embrace the Texas heat, don't get me wrong, I do complain when it gets too hot. But look at the bright side, the humid air keeps you looking young by keeping your skin hydrated.

I want to start with some skin food. Origins is a really wonderful brand and my mom introduced me to their products, she always talked about the importance of taking care of your skin and of course I ignored it all they way through my early 20's. So if I can give any of you young girls some advice, start taking care of your skin now and you will not be sorry! This eye cream is great for the mornings and really helps brighten the under eye area. I am a bad sleeper and stay up late so this eye cream is a dream for me as it helps my tired eyes and dark circles. It is formulated with coffee beans and ginseng, green tea... speaks for itself! Check it out at Origins!

Lippies. Lippies. Lippies. Oh, how I love all kinds of lipsticks, lip glosses, liquid lipsticks, lip stains, and lip balms.  Lorac cosmetics alter ego lipstick in "Dainty" is the perfect pink for spring. These lipsticks are highly pigmented and so creamy, with a matte finish. I have to say, matte lipsticks have been my go to lippy and what I have been wearing the most lately. I love a good pink lip with almost any look, it makes you feel so girly and flirty. Anastasia Beverly Hills lip glosses smell like cupcakes and look so pretty on their own or paired with a lipstick. "Girl Next Door" is a pale pink lip gloss that makes your lips look fabulous in the spring with a smokey eye or even a simple day look. These two pair for the perfect spring look.

Keeping with the theme of lips, this Bite Beauty Line and Define Lip Primer is the bomb. Your lips will not only be lined and help from color bleeding, they will last twice as long! Prepping your lips before applying lipstick is so so important, especially with the matte lip trend. Matte lipsticks are fabulous but they do tend to dry out your lips and this primer when applied before helps serve as a barrier. Also, remember to do a lip scrub and moisturize your lips before you start your makeup and by the time your ready to apply your lip product, it is going to apply a lot smoother! You'll have the perfect pout!!

Spring and Summer bring out that glory skin and fresh face look. Jennifer Lopez always has beautiful glowing skin and overtime I see her I find myself layering on different highlights! Glowing skin always gives your skin that healthy, beautiful look. Becca Skin Perfector is a great product to apply under your foundation to give your skin a natural, healthy glow. You can also dap them on to your cheeks with a beauty blender. Rule of thumb is when applying liquid products, you ALWAYS want to apply them before any powder products. I love layering this product with a powder highlight over top for that extra glam look. You can buy them individually, in a larger size, I bought this smaller set of 3 for my makeup kit.

Shout out to Tati on this shadow stick collab with Birchbox.  Tati, also known as glam life guru created several shadow sticks and lipsticks with birch box and they are really great! This eye shadow stick is so highly pigmented and super creamy. I love using this as an inner corner highlight, or all over the lid on a day your don't want to fuss with shadows. It stays put and honestly guys I am usually not a fan of shadow sticks but this one rocks!!

Last but definitely not least is this Vegas Nay Star Dust Palette collab with Too Faced! This has been a go to palette for me ever since I purchased it. It has so many beautiful and highly pigmented colors. You can get some great day time and night time looks from this palette, I love its versatility and would definitely say it is great for traveling. The shadows are highly pigmented and very bendable. If you visit my instagram you can check out several looks I have created with this palette.

I decided to throw in some jewelry this month because I love this line so much. Some of my very favorite earrings come from Kendra Scott and these are her white pearl Danielle Gold earrings, they are stunning and make such a statement. You will die when you visit her website and see how many colors are available in these statement earrings. When I am running out the door, I know I can't go wrong with these. It's an instant style statement and makes you feel put together. If you don't have a pair of her earrings, go get some!
