Sonia Kashuk Brushes

Ladies!

I am always shocked at how expensive nice makeup brushes are when strolling through my local Sephora and Ulta. ONE brush for 20$???????? No thank you! That's until I was at Target and came across the brand Sonia Kashuk in the makeup isle, and instantly fell in love with the look of their brushes! And I got FIVE brushes for only $16.99 which is a great deal! They not only look adorable, but work amazing as well! They also have other awesome products like these lovely smelling hand lotions, perfect for a gift or to carry around in your purse with you!

Head on over to your local Target & pick some up! Lots of colors and varieties to choose from! Or scroll to the bottom of this page & get your own online!


Glowing Skin

I love the matte finish look as much as the rest of you when it comes to my make-up, but every once in a while a nice glow or dewy finish is exactly what I'm looking for. Glowy skin is perfect for date night make-up and can really give you a super sultry look! Here are a few of my favorite products to obtain that dewy look.

NARS NARS NARS! They really do have some of the best products when it comes to getting that glowy shimmery sexy look!

I brush the illuminator over my cheekbones, and down the line of my nose. You can also use it in the creases of your eyes, and along your jawline. Use the contour blush over your cheeks, to give you that flushed face look, and to define your cheekbones. Use the eyeshadow for a suble smokey eye, and be sure to blend blend blend!!

Travel Beauty Favorites

No matter where you're headed or traveling to, you need to keep a good skincare & beauty routine. That means you need to wash your face, apply sunscreen, and use products that agree with your skin.

I love to travel, but leaving home doesn't mean leaving your products at home too. I have a few "Travel Favorites" that I take with me, because not all of my big face washes and hair products can all fit in my bag! You can of course opt for smaller (sample) sizes in your favorite products, but also take things that will help with whatever environment you'll be traveling to. aka. sunscreen for the beach, and oil for your hair in crazy humidity. So just pack accordingly!

Here are a list of my few favorite travel MUST HAVES. (Keep in mind, this isn't everything, but the products I won't leave home without!

Travel Beauty Favorites

(From left to right) ^^

AMIKA DRY SHAMPOO - Use for whether your re-vamping your hair after a long flight, or you just didn't have time to wash it that morning. This dry shampoo smells amazing, and is by far one of my favorites!

AMAZING GRACE DEODORANT -This stuff smells SO GOOD, and works like magic. I take it with me to Hawaii, and places that are really humid so I don't sweat!

TRADER JOE'S COCONUT OIL - I really like the consistency of this coconut oil, and the fact that it is organic. (but any coconut oil would work). I use coconut oil for EVERYTHING. It can be used to moisturize your body and face. Its especially good for people with dry skin or eczema.

REN GENTLE CLEANSING MILK - Ren skincare is my favorite. There products are super sensitive, but they work super well. This face wash helps to eliminate environmental aggressors, which makes it perfect when traveling to a new place and not knowing what in that environment is going to upset your skin. Try it for yourself!

COTTON SWABS - Obviously you can buy these just about anywhere! I use these of course to keep my ears clean, but also to clean smudged under eye makeup after a long flight, or after jumping in the ocean/pool. They are just good to have on hand!

BENEFIT HELLO FLAWLESS OXYGEN WOW - This foundation is lightweight on your skin, and is perfect for traveling to tropical places where you don't want a lot of makeup on your face.

STRIVECTIN 360 EYECREAM - All around my favorite under eye cream. Tightens and firms, and helps with dark circles and puffiness. If you have jet-lag or you just want to protect your skin from wrinkles then this product is for you!

SUN BUM SUNSCREEN - The smell, the look. I just love this sunscreen for traveling!
