I want to take some time to share my latest #BeautyHaul with you: my favorite beauties! All of these were purchased at Ulta, because I have a problem saying no to Ulta sprees… All of the images below link to the items so you can purchase and test them out for yourself. Let me know which you try and what you think!
First of all, you need to know that I’m a Tarte advocate. Their products are amazing; formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, or gluten. They are also cruelty-free. So of course, two of my latest products are theirs. This timeless, smoothing primer is wonderful at helping my make-up stay all-day, and I have noticed less shine at the end of the day (unfortunately I have oily skin).
This Tarte pallete, Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek, contains my new favorite eye shadows as well as a highlighter which I probably overuse (but love for hiding my baggy, new-mommy eyes)!
Speaking of bags, after spending a weekend watching make-up tutorials on YouTube (I recommend San Antonio vlogger, Ms Gold Girl), I decided my make-up bag was in desperate need of a killer under-eye concealer. After 30 minutes in store, I finally selected this BareMinerals Stroke Of Light Eye Brightener. I went with shade Luminous 2. It helped my eyes stay bright and happy, even after 8 hours in the office! The only con: I hate adding another step to my daily make-up application. Who has time for 3+ types of foundation/concealer?!
And my final purchase is a lip color from (surprise) Tarte as well. It is the perfect shade of nude for my skin tone, despite it’s ridiculous name (latergram). Let me clarify: when I say nude, I don’t mean skin tone. I mean closer to my natural pink lip color than the dramatic colors which I adore and my husband immediately asks me to remove (le sigh). The best way I can describe this particular shade is terracotta.
What’s your favorite latest beauty find? I look forward to hearing what you love!
