Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Since the Holiday season is upon us I thought I would share some gift ideas for every beauty category! I will have gifts for makeup , skincare and hair care! I hope this guide will help! Also say tuned for a special announcement!!

MAKEUP!

 

Makeup is pretty much a no fail! Makeup sets are great because one you get multiple products! Who doesn’t want more makeup!? Ok so I know not everyone but this is a beauty lover gift guide! There are so many ones to choose from the ones I have been looking at are this Smashbox Primer set , Tarte Fresh Faced Faves , Tarte Limited Edition Overexposed Highlighter set just to name a few! Do you have a eyeshadow lover? Get them a palette that they have had an eye on here’s a few that is on my makeup bucket-list Modern Renaissance , Urban Decay Naked Heat , Tarte Tartelette In Bloom but there are great affordable ones too! Like ELF , Morphe , Profusion, and many more! Can one have too many blushes? My two faves are Balm Beach and Physicians Formula Butter Blush they are both great! I’m sure we all know someone that wears her highlighter like a unicorn hey no judgement here! If you have someone in your life that loves to try colorful products they will probably love the WetNWild MegaGlow palette  or The Balm Mary lou Manizer . Lastly we can’t forget about the lipstick lovers! A great idea is to put together your own lip set! You get some lipsticks like Maybelline SuperStay or  NYX Lingerie in a cute gift box!

                                                                                            HAIR!

We can’t forget about hair care! Hair products are a amazing to give as a gift! Around the Holidays they come some great hair care sets like this Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Starter trio , Dove Hair Care & Body set , Sephora Hydrated Coils. Dry Shampoo is a must have and these sets are great Sephora Extend Your Style , and a great go to is the Batiste Dry Shampoo trio. We often forget about hair tools so why not get someone you love that probably have had the same hair dryer or flat ion for years! This awesome Dry Bar Dryer set is a great gift to give to a mom or sister! This CHI Air Classic is too cute! I might get that one for myself lol! Have a small budget put together a gift basket throw in a travel size flat , heat spray , and some travel size hair products!

SKINCARE!

With all of the amazing Holiday looks everyone will be wearing they will need some skin TLC! There are so many great skincare sets out there as you can tell I love sets because I love the bang for your buck! Plus it gives you a chance to try lots of products! Face masks are a huge part a lot of people skincare routine so these from Sephora are a great choice if someone is just starting out. There are also these from Biobelle . Everyone has different skincare needs so make sure if you get any products make sure you know the persons skin type. A easy way is to look at what brands and products a use. I love a refreshing facial mist like the Mario Badescu Grab and Go Travel set. I love a good bodywash set like these two from Olay The first one is this one which I would buy myself and this one because I love practical things! In the winter our skin gets dryer so a good scrub is a must have this is an great set. You don’t have to break the bank for skincare products ELF have stepped up their brand a lot and they now carry tons of products like this set. I would love to receive this Pixi set it’s a great way to try out more from them without breaking the bank! For the last skincare gift idea is a nice gift to get anyone because we need to take care of our lips , hands and feet so this Burt’s Bees set is a awesome gift to give!

Hey guys I have been waiting to review this Balm Beach Blush for quite awhile now! I’m sure y’all have too! When I saw that The Balm was on Hautelook I snatched some stuff up! This blush is so pretty! The formula is so soft and easy to blend. I love how natural it looks and you can wear with any makeup look! It’s long lasting and matte too! The pigmentation is great its not so pigmented that you have to be super careful with it. I adore the packaging to! I love the vintage pin-up look of it plus their packaging has a quirkiness to it! Plus its slim so it’s great for travel! I am in love with it and reach for it all of the time!

Good morning everyone! I was going through my entire skincare bin the other day. As I was I realized that I have a lot of it! Some things needed to be tossed or passed on but before I do I thought I would share my collection! I know it may not be a lot compared to tons of other people but for me it is! Some things I just got and some thing I have had. All in all I’m trying simplify my skincare routine. So grab some coffee or tea and snacks!

These Neutrogena makeup wipes are one of my holy grail wipes! They get everything off! I have bought them over and over again! I use this UP&UP (Target brand) moisturizer a lot under makeup because it’s light. Also it gives just enough moisture where it’s not heavy. Ya’ll already know I love the Simple Face Wash! This is my go face wash mostly in the winter because I have very dry skin! It hydrates my skin and it’s made for sensitive skin see my full review here. I’m not a big fan of the Freeman Peel Off Mask I feel like it doesn’t do anything and it’s a pain to get off! Not worth the work but pretty affordable. If your looking for a super affordable face wash that works pretty well then check out the Elf Face Wash! It leaves my face feeling clean and can we talk about the packaging see my review here. I had this sample of Andalou face moisturizer in a Target Beauty box awhile back and I love it! For one it smells great because it has rose ingredients in it. I don’t find the smell is over powering and it’s light weight! I wear it under makeup a lot. I may have to buy a full size!! If you have seen my recent haul you would know that I picked up these Biore`Pore Strips. They work okay I haven’t seen a huge difference but they do alright removing my blackheads I’m still testing them out. They only gripe I have is they are pricey for the amount you get. I have been loving this Dr. Brandt Exfoliator that I got in a Fabfitfun box. When I have a lot of dry patches I breakout this bad boy and it gets the job done! Now a warning it is super expensive I recommend waiting till you have a gift card or put it on your wishlist for Christmas. It dose make my skin nice and smooth! For lazy late nights when I get home I love using the Simple Micellar Water to get off my makeup. I soak a cotton round and wipe off my face hahaha! It really help with eye makeup too! Also your kinda cleaning your face too! I also really like these Elf makeup wipes which I did a review on. I have been liking this Pixi Toner. I like multipurpose products for when I want to shorten my skincare routine . This one gives leaves my skin a little bit glowy.  I use this Pond’s moisturizer at night because it’s thicker and takes longer to sink in. It dose not help with my fine lines though. I picked up the Mario Badescu Facial Spray and drying lotion. Both of these are new to me so I’m still trying this out. The spray feels refreshing and gives me that quick hydration. I haven’t used it to set my makeup yet. I have tried the lotion and haven’t seen much results but I am still testing it out. Another great exfoliater is the Gariner one. This is a good to one because well for one it smells good two it also helps get rid of dry flakes! I did a review on this one as well. I have been try this Elf Melt Cleanser out and so fair I’m really impressed it helps melt my makeup off too! I have been trying to expand my skincare and get betting about taking care of my skin. So I pulled out this Skin Laundry Serum that I received in a subscription box. Now I’m not sure if I really dose anything but I guess time will tell! Hahaha! I do use this as a extra  layer of moisture. This O.G.R Mineral Peel has become a holy grail of mine! It’s literally magic in a bottle!! You spray it all over your face then massage the product and the dead skin comes off! I don’t use this Gariner face wash that much because I don’t suffer from oily skin as much as I do dryness. I’ll use it more in the summer time. I found it dose help oil in my T zone. This brush  (similar) is great it’s so cheap and travel friendly!

Well ya’ll that’s my skincare collection and mini reviews! I hope you enjoyed it! Do you use any of these products? What are your go to products?

SUMMER FAVORITES 2017

*Disclaimer this post contains affiliate links if you chose to buy something through my link I may earn a small fee at no cost to you and keeps this blog running! Thank you for your support!*

Hey ya’ll! I can’t believe Summer is over! I will say I love Fall and can’t wait bring on the boot and candy corn ! So in honor of this great season today’s post is all about my summer faves!

This season I had more skincare and hair care than last season! I have been trying out some more skincare products. I love been loving the Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner! It’s a toner and exfoliator all in one and I gotta say I love multipurpose products. My skin looks a little bit glowy I love this toner for the Summer time because my skins not as dry. In my Spring FabFitFun box I got the Dr. Brandt Microdermabasion Exfoliator and finally decided to crack it open! I had never tried a scrub like this before after I use it my skin looks great especially when my skin is very dry! It gets it all off and I have a clean , smooth canvas to do my makeup! I have a feeling I’m going to use this all fall and winter!! Now when I get home late on Saturday nights I hate fooling around with taking off my makeup ugh the struggle! When I get home use the Simple Micellar Water on a cotton round and wipe off my makeup. This takes off a lot of my makeup and a huge bonus is its for sensitive skin! My skin hasn’t been acting up as much in the summer so I haven’t had to cover myself in a thick lotion! Remember when I said I love multipurpose products? Well ladies .. and gentlemen I introduce you to the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer! This in shower moisturizer has been my bestfriend during the summer! It keeps my skin hydrated through out the day an sinks in pretty quickly. Now lets get into the hair care! First product I’ll get out of the way because I have talked about it before and reviewed it. You all know I LOVE the Batiste Dry Shampoo when I first started my blog that was my first review! I threw this one in here because of the smell! Plus I still can’t find a dry shampoo that is as good as this one! I got this Briogeo Leave-in Conditioner in my FabFitFun box for spring. I spray this in my ends after I get out of the shower to help detangle my hair a little bit. I love how good it smells. My hair is so soft and healthy looking after I use this! I have been using this Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves spray all summer! I don’t find it to weigh my hair down or leave it crunchy. Yay now onto the makeup I have been loving all summer! For eye primer I have been using the Milani Eyeshadow Primer it dose a good job of holding and making my shadows last! A little goes a long way. Recently I tried a new mascara and put my beloved CoverGirl lashBlast aside (review coming soon) and tried the L’oreal Voluminous mascara!! Oh boy do I love it!! I have not been able to put in down! Definitely look for a review on that! I featured the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in last seasons faves.Yep you know whats coming next the good ol Butter Blush! Another thing I couldn’t put down! I did a review on this as well. I need to get another shade! I also have fallen in love with the Mary-Lou Manizer from the  Manizer Sisters palette. This hightlight is perfect ( insert heart emojji here) I love it! I need to get a full size one! Now I saved the best for last! I am in love with this palette now I haven’t tried all of the shades in the Tarteist Pro! I promise you I am certainly working on it! They are so pigmented and blend like a dream! I’m not going to go on a rant because I am doing a full review on this! You will probably see this in my fall faves! I will say so far it has been worth every penny! Well you guys that’s all I have for my spring favorites for 2017! Who’s ready for fall!?!?!? I know I am!! What was your summer favorites?
