Current Beauty Favorites

I've found a ton of new products I've been loving lately... here are the current favorites!


PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum: This is a savior for dehydrated skin. It puts back so much hydration in the skin and makes the skin look and feel plump and glowy. I love using this when I haven't had enough water, in the winter when my skin is dry and chapped, if I've had too much sun (rare), if I'm flying/doing a lot of traveling, or a few days after I've used retinol and I'm feeling drier than normal. My favorite thing about this product is that not only does it add back HA to the skin, but it helps your skin to continue to produce it's own HA. Absolutely loving this lately!

Loreal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation: There are so many beauty gurus out there who have fallen in love with this foundation and are singing its praises and for good reason! This foundation is absolutely beautiful on even oily skin. This truly looks like skin, very natural all while providing good coverage and staying in place all day. When I put this on I don't feel like I have foundation sitting on my top of my skin, it feels light and weightless. I don't look like a grease slick at the end of the day, and it stays where I put it. This has impressed the heck out of me and I can't stop using it (I feel bad for the rest of my foundations because they're not getting much use these days but I can't help it!).

Dose of Colors lip gloss in "Can you not": I picked this up on a whim at Ulta and I'm so glad that I did. The formula of these glosses are like no other gloss I've used before. I'm going to be honest, if I skip a makeup product it's always lips. It's easy for me to walk out of the house with a full face and bare lips and I don't know why. Since buying this, it's almost all I wear on my lips. It's a lovely natural nude color and the texture isn't sticky like most glosses. It feels moisturizing and hydrating on the lips. This particular shade is a bit lighter than my natural lip color and my favorite way to wear this is on top of my Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in the shade "pillow talk". These two together is a match made in heaven! (Also love it with Mac "Subculture").


Flower Beauty Light Illusion Full Coverage Concealer: Since it's been colder here lately, my eye area has been much more dry than normal and it's hard to wear concealers that are super drying so I've been reaching for this Flower Beauty one a ton. This one is more hydrating, but yet stays in place so well. It doesn't accentuate dryness around the eye area or make you look aged. It sits beautifully under the eyes and when you set it, it locks in and does not move.

Smashbox Primer Water: I don't know how I'm just getting around to trying this, but I am hooked! I got a sample of this in my Sephora Play box a few months ago and I have been using this nonstop. I love it on days when I'm being lazy with primers because it's so easy to just spritz on. It gives you some extra moisture to help your foundations sit just right on the skin. It's not too glowy or dewy which I like and it definitely helps with the application and longevity of my makeup. I've already purchased the full size of this and will continue to use this on an everyday basis!

Morphe Continuous Setting Mist: This mist feels SO good to apply on the skin after my makeup is on and helps everything to melt together. It truly pulls the look together and helps anything from looking cakey or dry. I'm not sure how this helps the actual longevity of the makeup, but it is a necessity to finish off any look. The mist is so fine and never leaves product droplets like some sprays do and this one is much more affordable than the Urban Decay one (although for a long lasting look I will still use the UD spray). Loving this one so much!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your favorites lately?

Had to include this since she was being so cute while I was taking pictures!
