Current Beauty Favorites: December 2014


I’ve been wanting to do a ‘favorites’ type post for awhile just to give an update on any products I may have mentioned as a first impression or to let you know if I’ve changed my mind about something I wasn’t crazy about. I didn’t want to make this a monthly post because honestly, I just don’t want to commit. Especially if nothing major changes or I don’t have much worth mentioning I don’t want to just pick things because I have to. So here’s what I’ve been loving lately.


The Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow palette has quickly become my go-to bronzer/highlight duo. The bronzer is great for everyday and the highlight which I wasn’t crazy for in the beginning, has grown on me. I especially like it for an inner corner highlight. The bronze color is also great for contouring around your nose it’s just the right neutral tone that actually looks natural.

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush palette has also become a go-to product as of late, and surprisingly the last shade that I initially also didn’t like has become my favorite. Although it doesn’t show up as brightly on my skin as the other two shades, I find that it’s that perfect soft plum color that works great in the winter and goes well with almost every eye look.

Nars Audacious lipstick in Barbara along with the Rimmel lip liner in Innocent is my new nude lip pairing. I’m really enjoying the formula of the Audacious lipsticks, they are pigmented and apply nicely. My natural lipline is on the darker side so Innocent helps to combat that.

The Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara has become my number one all time favorite mascara. It’s volumizing, lengthening and has a pretty minimal smudge factor. I have back-ups of this, that’s how good it is.

And finally, the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream has replaced powder foundation for day to day coverage. It’s moisturizing, has medium coverage, doesn’t feel heavy or leave my skin greasy. And it just makes my skin look better, just like it’s name implies. It has a finish that’s not matte or dewy, it just looks natural. If your still looking for a BB/CC/tinted moisturizer, I highly recommend this one.
