SKINCARE & PREP.
Tula Cult Classic Face Wash – This face wash takes off all my makeup (mascara included) and is what I use every night! It doesn’t dry my skin out but still purifies my skin with the glycolic acid it contains!
Youth to the People Antioxidant Face Wash – Such a good rich face wash! I think it’s important to have a face wash with an acid (the Tula one) and a more reparative face wash. You adjust your nightly routine based on how your skin is feeling that day, no day may need the same exact combo and that’s ok!
Wishful HoneyBalm Moisturizer – A glowy lightweight facewash that I would recommend for normal skin! It’s a gel consistency and leaves an iridescent sheen on the skin.
Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream and the Ultra Facial Advanced Repair Cream – The Ultra Facial Cream is perfect for everyday, lightweight but deeply moisturizing. If you need an extra boost in PM add the Advanced Repair Cream, this cream is great for sensitive skin and is extremely hydrating on its own. I used the Advanced Repair Cream when my skin was feeling super sensitive and reactive.
InnBeauty Bright & Tight Eye Cream – Literally brightens skin immediately!! It’s so good and lays perfectly under makeup. I also use this on its own when I don’t wear makeup. This eye cream has actives like Vitamin C in it which help over time the more you use it!
Supergoop CC Screen – I wear shade 326 W. Such a good CC cream and is my go-to over summer for light makeup days, and the “no-makeup makeup look”.
Tula Protect + Glow – This is one of my favorite sunscreens, perfect for summer & winter! Give such a nice glow and is amazing on the shoulders too.
Shiseido Clear Sunscreen Stick SPF 50 – Applies perfectly over makeup and is so easy to pop in your bag with no worries of spilling and making a mess.
Innisfree Hyaluronic Acid Serum — This is a great intro to a hyaluronic acid serum. Another great affordable option is the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid Serum. These serums are perfect for
Caliray So Blown Primer – My favorite primer hands down!! I was never a primer girl until I tried this one and it’s sold out so many times and is so hard to get your hands on. I’d recommend this one for those days when you need a super smooth, pore filled in, base.
InnBeauty Face Glaze – I use this as a glowy primer. It leaves a gorgeous sheen on the skin a sits super well under makeup! This is your primer if you want a major glow added to your foundation. Glowy goddess girlies this is for YOU.
Hourglass vanish airbrush primer — Silky smooth and makes such a nice lit-from-within base! Subtly makes light refract and brings light to your face. I love this for a subtle glow.
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation – Oil-free and long-wearing. This works for all skin types but is great for those with combo to oily skin or prone to breakouts. I find this foundation last really long on the skin, is weightless full coverage, and is transfer resistant.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – I wear shade 6.5. This was my number 1 foundation for a long time, and I still absolutely love it, but I am reaching for the Lancome Teint Idole more lately. I think it’s important to pay attention to where your skin is at and adjust your products from there! Sometime’s I need the luminous finish of Giorgio Armani and sometimes I need the velvet natural finish of Teint Idole.
Haus Labs Foundation Shade — Super similar to the Armani Beauty luminous silk foundation that I absolutely love. I wear shade 250 Light/Medium, but I do fluctuate between shades
Ilia Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 – hydrating with tons of SPF. I love this for a dewy look and it’s perfect when you need that extra hydration in winter. I wore this 24/7 last year and is still an honorable mention for this year! It has SPF like the Supergoop CC Screen but with more coverage, and hydration. I’d recommend it for mainly dry/normal skin types.
Hourglass Airbrush Concealer – I am OBSESSED with this concealer. It has such great coverage but does not dry out your under eyes and blends like a dream, it’s also very buildable.
HUDA Powder – I use the shade “cupcake” when I wear this powder. It is lightweight but a touch heavier than the Fenty one. The main reason I reach for one vs the other is for undertone.
Fenty Setting Powder – shade “lavender” is ideal to counteract any yellowness. This is especially great if you tend to feel like all your concealers look yellow on you. Great for those with more pink undertones also. This was found through
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – If you can’t decide which color you want this gives you a little of all of them in one palette! I love Dim light, but when I use this palette I mix them all. I’ve recently been using their new shade as a powder bronzer over my DIBS Duo Stick.
Hoola Glow Bronzer — Ok, not linking this one because I can only find it on poshmark?!?! Is it discontinued? Major apologies if so cause it’s a fave of mine.
Rare Beauty – Hard to get your hands on but for good reason. Such a good formula that feels almost cream to powder finish. I love applying this over my Dibs status stick. The major tip is to use BOTH cream and powder highlight, bronzer, and blush in your routine!
Caliray Hi! Light – This feels more like your traditional highlight but it is still a super beautiful finish. Make sure to use setting powder at the end of your routine to melt everything into your skin! This really helps powders look like a second skin and not just sit on top.
CILS BOOSTER XL Mascara Primer – One of my top 5 beauty products ever. I SWEAR by this primer. It allows the mascara to really grab onto your lashes making them ultra-long, full, and more curled. It also conditions your lashes and helps them stay healthy. Pro-Tip: you can even wear this at night with no mascara as a lash mask!! That’s how good this is for your lashes.
Lancome Lash Idole Mascara – A tried and true mascara that I always go back to when I need something I can count on. This + the CILS booster is perfection.
Caliray Come Hell or Highwater Mascara – A new mascara to me this year. It is tubing and volumizing. I REALLY loved how this applied all on it’s own. It is def in my top 3 mascaras but not my number 1 at the moment. I feel like I go through phases of my #1, but it rotates between the list I have here!
Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara – Ok ok ok….. I CAVED!!!! Audrey has been a ride or die for this mascara forever and always recommended it but I never tried it because me+waterproof is a no. BUT, I tried it, and low and behold it is worth every bit of time it takes to get it off. I use Ponds cold cream and it really doesn’t add a ton of time to my skincare routine. Waterproof is magical, trust me, if you have trouble with your lash curl holding try this!! Nothing helps you hold a curl like waterproof mascara.
Better Than Sex Liner – The best liquid liner. I’ve used it for years now!
Valentino Brow Trio – Ngl, I just found out this brow pencil was a trio HAHA. Even as a normal brow pencil, I thought it was worth the price, now knowing it’s a trio, even more, worth it!!!
Makeup By Mario Ethereal Palette – Oh man such a gorgeous finish to these shadows! I love this palette, but as most palettes are it’s a touch large to travel with, but when I am at home I definitely find myself reaching for it.
GrandeLASH Serum – Been using this for a long time now! I think I purchased it at the last Sephora sale where Audrey, Kiersten, and I tested it for a month. We all saw amazing results as well as with the brow gel.
Armani Beauty Liquid Eyeshadow — This is such a unique product!! They have matte options and shimmer options. This is easily a one-swipe and dab-in-with-your-finger type of product. So easy to use and gives great dimension.
Hourglass Cream Eyeshadow – Ohhhhh I love this for a lid topper!!! Again, just use your finger and dab this on top of any look to add a gorgeous shimmery wet look.
Olaplex No 3 – Great for repairing damaged or colored hair. Use as directed on damp hair (the ends not the root) and 1 time a week! Another great alternative to this product would be the K-18, also available at Sephora. I find they both give amazing results so I would recommend choosing based on your needs and price point! The K-18 is a touch more expensive per oz.
Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner – Since going blonde my hair stylist has recommended this product! I love how it leaves my hair, and I feel like the tone of blonde has remained. This is the blonde shampoo I use which is also from Oribe. Note: The blonde shampoo is not an every-wash kind of product. Use as often as your stylist recommends.
Christophe Robin Scalp Scrub — I love this scalp scrub but it’s not in stock!! Still sharing it in case it comes back because it is a step in my routine that I feel makes loads of a difference. This is the product for you if you feel like all the serums, oils, and gels just sit on your scalp and never quite come off. I can’t get a super deep clean without using this! Again, this is not an every-wash type of product. Use as needed!
Kérastase Nutritive Blow-Dry Primer Heat Protectant – I apply this to my hair, focusing mostly on the mid and ends. I use it every time I wash my hair as a heat protectant.
ColorWOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray – This anti-frizz spray is amazing and a staple in my routine. You actually only need to use it once every 3 washes! It smooths hair and is activated when you blow-dry or heat-style your hair.
GHD Curling Iron – I love this curler and it has been my go-to since I purchased it. The one I use is the 1.25 and I also use it as a wand also (just wrap your hair around the barrel).
Dyson Hair Dryer – If you’re wanting to splurge now is the time when you can get a good % off! I also recommend the Dyson Airwrap it’s also a splurge but if you’ve been wanting it grab it because why not save $$$.
BumBum Cream – The smell alone makes this one a winner, but it’s expensive so it’s definitely one to purchase during the sale! This body lotion soaks into the skin leaving it hydrated, glowy, and plump. Does it firm up my booty? Yeah, I don’t think so but the smell is divine and the hydration is A+. If you’re on the fence try the travel size and see if it’s worth it for you.
Fenty Butta Drop Whipped Oil Body Cream – The name says it all, it’s a whipped texture that just melts into your skin. Pro tip: apply all your skincare when your skin is still damp!! Fresh out of the shower to lock in all the moisture. I love the texture of this lotion, it is thicker than the Bum Bum cream but doesn’t feel like it sits on top of your skin. Both are sold in tubs.
First Aid Beauty KP cream – Those little bumps on the back of your arms? Yeah, I have them too. They’re called Keratosis Pilaris! The best way to get rid of them is by using a physical exfoliant (sugar scrub, wash cloth, etc..) and a chemical exfoliant (moisturizer that contains Lactic Acid, AHA, etc..). This product is made especially for this problem and I love it!!
Ouai Body Wash – Such a good gentle body wash with a subtle smell that I feel stays throughout the day. Love the lather this creates without drying out my skin. Plus moisturize with any of the ones I recommended above and you’ll be smelling heavenly. This body wash is a splurge, I know, but if you’ve had your eye on it then order it when you can save $$$.
Glossier Perfume – At $64 not on sale, this can be a major win while on sale. It smells like high-end perfumes that cost upwards of $200! It has a woody scent that is unisex and gives me the most luxurious vibes.
Sol De Janeiro Brazillian Crush Body Mist – If you love the smell of the lotion but would prefer a drugstore price then stick with your usual lotion and buy the body mist. YUM is all I can say. Every time I spray this, one of the girls in the house stops and says, “ok, what’s that smell.” So light and yummy feels like the perfect everyday scent.
Lash Curler – a good lash curler is KEY to the perfect lashes!
INN Beauty Lip Oil – These lip oils are super hydrating, leaving my lips feeling juicy and with a nice tinted glaze.
Hourglass Gloss – Similar to the ABH gloss this one has such a unique shimmer that it adds to your lips. The formula is not sticky and adds a little bit of volume to the lips without the burn you get from plumping glosses.
ABH Diamond Gloss – The dimension, the shimmer, the gloss yes, yes, and YES. I love this formula for a dramatic topper to any lip combo.
