It’s most wonderful time of the year!
There are so many amazing makeup and skincare things out right now that I’m going CRAZY! So much stuff to love.
I feel like this past month was kind of boring for me though in terms of makeup things. I’ve been super into skincare but was so busy with some work stuff that I didn’t do anything fun makeup-wise for at least a week. I love that we’re getting into December and it’s time for fun holiday looks! And let’s be real: GLITTER.
If you’re looking for gift ideas (for someone else or, um, yourself!!), I did do a beauty gift guide of some favorites that I’ve been loving in all of 2018. I’m also considering doing a makeup basics post with some of my favorite basic things? Let me know if I should!
On to this month…
Charlotte Tilbury Exaggereyes. I’m having a huge CT moment and am LOVING this. I tend to stay away from smaller palettes because it’s inevitable that one or two shadows won’t work on my eyes. But I just love all four of these shades. They are so pretty and work together so well. Great formula too!
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst. I’ve been using this shade for a year now. Sometimes I use it as eyeliner, sometimes as a shadow under my lash line, sometimes as an all over color. I adore it. I’ve used these in the past but this is the best. I got it for Christmas last year – I have this set and it lasts forever!
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer. I am SO excited about this. I’ve been using Tarte Shape Tape for a long time now but I heard that this was close (if not better). I love it even more. It’s not as thick but still has some coverage. And I feel like it’s better for dry skin?
Weleda Skin Food. Again, this is saving my hands! My hands have never been so dry – between millions of piles of dishes for recipe testing (and regular life!), cleaning, diaper changes, etc – my hands are so dry. One use of this and they are like new. This is a MUST for me. It’s pricey but you only need the tiniest bit.
Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit. It’s TIME!! I bring this out every year come November and I’m so in love with it. The scent is warm and slightly sweet but not sickeningly sweet at all. A little spiced too! It’s super. This is randomly limited edition and always comes in and out of stock, so you have to check for it!
Laura Mercier Velour Matte Lipstick in Ruthless. I love crayons like this for lips – this is matte but not super drying. It’s such a pretty color too!
I’m dying to know what is on your holiday wish list or even what you have your eye on for January! xo
