Clinique All About Eyes Serum, Laura Geller Lip Strip Smoothing Sugar Scrub, Milani Golden Light Face and Eye Strobe Palette, Juvia's Place Mini Masquerade Eyeshadow Palette, Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlighting and Contour Palette, Fiona Stiles Miramar Invisible Loose Setting Powder

Now that we’ve got all of my January empties out of the way let’s move on to my faves, shall we? The plan was to get my faves and empties up together. But having a jam packed birthday weekend and then a crippling sinus infection the following week really threw me off. Way off. I’m talking mouth breathing for 4 days straight and putting my pants on backwards for an interview off. LOL!

Needless to say, January was a very long month but a lot of good came from it. Like ringing in the New Year and spending my birthday and Valentine’s Day with my amazing boyfriend. And trying a handful of new products that turned out to be the bomb.com. There’s nothing better than love and good makeup, right?

It takes a lot to make me blush but Laura Geller has me blushing all over the place with her new Just Blushing Palette.

There’s beautiful marbled baked blushes and even one with a kiss print. The Just Blushing Palette is a blush junkie’s dream and its got me swooning all over the place these days.

Laura Geller The Delectables Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

Laura Geller The Delectables Eyeshadow Palette

Brands like MAC, NARS and Urban Decay will always be popular but there’s plenty of other brands that deserve a little more love too. Like Laura Geller. Like many of us, I’ve been sleeping on Laura Geller but she has some pretty amazing products in her lineup. It took Gilded Honey becoming a social media sensation for me to take notice of Laura Geller but she’s more than just bomb highlighters. You can basically call Laura Geller the queen of baked (powders that is ?) because she’s got the game on lock. Her line mostly consists of baked highlights, blush, bronzer, foundation and more to get us all baked in style. ‘Cause we all like to get baked from time to time right? ?

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion, Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Under Make-Up Primer, Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm, Tarte Clean Slate Flawless Brightening Primer, NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer Serum

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million more times. Summer is all about that glow, baby! A dewy, radiant complexion is a must have for summer because it makes skin look healthy and soft versus a matte finish that can sometimes look dry, cakey and mask-like. No bueno! I know everyone doesn’t like to go quite as highlighter crazy as I do (I pile that ish on!) and that’s okay. There’s other ways to get your glow on in a more natural, subtle way. Like by adding a brightening primer to your routine to give you an all over radiant glow that backlights your makeup and adds a luminous touch to your complexion. To make your life easier, I’ve rounded up my 5 favorite brightening primers to help you glow all summer long without overdoing it. Let’s get started!

5 Hydrating Primers for Dry Skin

5 Primers for Dry Skin

Tired of your foundation and concealer emphasizing your dry skin? Me too, girl! I’ve tried a ton of different foundations and concealers throughout the years and I’ve discovered that it’s not always the formula that needs a change. Sometimes it’s our approach, skin and technique that needs a little tweaking. Foundation and concealer has a tendency to emphasize dry skin putting the spotlight on flaky patches and fine lines rather than creating that smooth, flawless finish we crave. Now, there’s plenty of moisturizing foundations and concealers out there but if you’re anything like me you’ll quickly learn that they’re not without flaws either. Some moisturizing formulas tend to settle into fine lines and wrinkles as well as fade quickly, look greasy or just feel too rich–especially in the summer. That’s why I like to focus on correcting my dry skin with a solid skincare routine (which I’ll soon share!) and a good hydrating formula to ensure that my makeup applies and wears beautifully all day.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Round Up

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty has come and gone and taken a chunk of my money. LOL! I definitely saw it coming though because the Beauty Steals and Hot Buys (we’ll discuss later) were just too good to pass up. Up to 50% off Prestige makeup, skin and nail goodies? Those are the kinda deals you just can’t miss! Prestige products almost never go on sale at Ulta so 21 Days of Beauty was the perfect time to stock up on favorites or try something new. I used the opportunity to try a lot of new products that were either already on my list or would have never crossed my mind but turned out to be pretty amazing. Basically, I had a lot of fun during 21 Days of Beauty!
