Happy Friday guys! how are you doing ? feels like forever since I dress myself to go out and not only wearing Sweats and gym clothes at home! .. on a brighter side
Today is the first day of the Sephora sale ! and guess who's the most happy right now? haha
you know how much I LOVE beauty products.
I wanted to share with you my favorites and true picks - these are things that i'm currently using, or in love with.
don't forget to use the code SPRINGSAVE at checkout on the Sephora
Happy shopping guys!
I'll start off with my favorite category. #skincare My skin is really sensitive (too many allergies) so I try to stay with brands that work for me. all of this products I have tried and loved. I had read, watched , a lot of skin care videos to inform myself about what I am putting in my face.
#Tip Always do a research about any kind of product you are going to use, and
don't mix harsh ingredients. For example, some people can't use retinol and AHA together because of their sensitive's skin .maybe for some others its ok .. every skin type is different and it's important to introduce new chemicals slowly.
It's a form of synthetic Vitamin A that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and signs of aging. How does it work exactly? Retinolincreases cell turnover, which means dead cells are rapidly sloughed off, and skin is left looking radiant and youthful.
- The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Niacinamide helps fade darks spots on the skin. Most serums have a small percentage of Niacinamide in it, but this is the highest dose in the purest form. Use this in addition to your night time routine.
- Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil
Overall a great serum. Helps keep skin supple and glowy.
- Drunk Elephant A-Passioni™ Retinol Cream
If you follow me on instagram you know how obsessed I am with retinol. It's literally skin changing. It basically helps you shed your skin faster, revealing brand new, baby soft skin.
Everyone should have this in their beauty cabinet.
- Drunk Elephant B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Serum
Hydrated skin means supple skin. This helps my skin keep a healthy glow, especially when traveling.
AHA is a type of acid found in foods. Like retinol, it also helps speed up the skin shedding process, revealing bright, glowy skin.
A multitasking serum that naturally brightens, improves skin texture, and reduces dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
this is a life changing product guys , I had the opportunity to be at the launch and chat with the creators of it. and I learn a few things .. and I can see the results in my skin! you'll love it.
- Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask
I use this when my skin is in need of extra hydration. It's extremely hydrating, so i'll often use it as a night time moisturizer instead of just a mask. I truly love this product guys !
It really helped my skin recover from the dryness when I was traveling btw dallas and Miami.
- REN Skincare Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toner
Similar to the honeymoon glow serum, this AHA is in toner form. If you want one less serum on your face, this is for you.
- Caudalie Beauty Elixer
The one thing thats always on my Christmas wish list. I love this spray because it helps balance out my skin and almost erases the look of my pores. Leaves my skin feeling brand new.
- Erno laszlo Hydra-Therapy Foaming Cleanse
A cleanser and makeup remover in one, this is gentle and richly foaming cleanser removes pore-clogging and impurities without bothering my skin. Its gentle enough to use on my face everyday. .
Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser
if you follow me on Instagram you'll know that im obsessed with this brand because its a tru gem this cleanser is gentle pH-balancing gel that treats skin to a restoring cocktail of 11 amino acids with a splash of mineral-rich seawater.
I mostly use it when out of the shower. It feels like a leave in conditioner or those treatments for 3 minutes that has Garnier but a little less heavy. It also helps remove frizz and hydrate my hair.
- IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel
This is my favorite summer hair styling item. After a beach day, I apply it to my wet hair and it leaves mermaid like hair. It also smells absolutely delicious. Can also be used for flyaways when rocking an updo.
- IGK Beach Club Texture Spray
Another miracle guys. I'm seriously obsessed with this stuff. The only thing that gives me texture and "cool-girl" hair. It's the one product I always use on my hair when styling.
I've always loved learning new makeup tricks form professional makeup artists when creating campaigns . I love finding great products that I know work well, or that captive my eye and like to try on.
some of my favorite guyss:
- Laura Mercier
Pure Canvas Primer - Protecting Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Pure Canvas Primer - Illuminating
I don't wear much makeup during the week unless Shooting days .. I use this as a foundation. It's very light to wear during the day but is also buildable to use it at night. It gives me natural,coverage and it doesn't make me look like i'm wearing a lot of makeup.
The only setting powder I use if there's something special. I love applying this after my concealer or CC cream. It's not too heavy and doesn't mattify all the way, leaving a nice glow.
- NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo
My all time favorite blush and bronzer colors. These are flattering on every skin tone and it's a makeup artists favorite.
- Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
- Too faced Bronzer Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
This is the bronzer I use when i'm a little more tan than usual. It gives me a nice, warm glow. I use the color Natural (1)..
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
I use this daily. It's almost like a hairspray for your brows. It keeps my brows in place all day long.
A waterproof gel brow pencil that glides on smoothly in a matte finish for 10 hours of wear.
Longwear Lip Liner
This lip liner its currently the only one I use outlines and enhances the natural shape of my lips.
t's so natural and gives me an instant fuller lip. love naked color!
I own many of the highlighters to be honest is my favorite thing so here's some options
Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter by Marc Jacobs
