Winter Favorites


Hear me talk about these winter favorites in Instagram Stories. The discussion is saved in my highlights on my profile.

Pantene Intense Rescue Shots: These one shot conditioning treatments make my VERY damaged hair feel like the hair of a top tier Disney princess.

Tinkle Razors: Shaving the peach fuzz from your face is a great exfoliation AND my makeup just looks better since it now sits on my skin rather than a fuzzy field of useless hair. Here's a quick 5-minute video on shaving your face.

BlushLips Silicone Lip Scrubber: I love the lip scrubs from Chapstick and Tree Hut. This handy tool keeps my hands out of the matter of exfoliating my chapped lips.

Marc Jacobs (P)outliner in Slow Burn: I'm already a hugefan of MJ's gel eyeliners for the water liner because they don't budge. This lipliner follows suit.

Honest Beauty Lip Crayon in Marsala and Sheer Blossom: This formula is delightful and who doesn't love a crayon. No need to sharpen since it's a twist-up formula.

Nivea Shine Lip Care in almost every shade: These are perfect to layer on top of a dry liquid matte lip. Not too sticky and not glossy.

ELF Bite Size Shadows in Rose Water: ELF makes a great drugstore formula for eye shadows and these 4-pan palettes are a perfect edition to any collection. Comes in 8 color stories.

Sephora Eye Shadow Brushes: Blending #27 and Drawing Blending #42 are half off through President's Day and they are fantastic eye shadow blenders. My favorite eye shadow blending brush is by Sonia Kashuk.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Primer: I still love the Milani eye primer but this requires the tiniest amount and it works like glue. Plus, colors pop on it.

MAC Glow Play Blush: I have the colors Cheeky Devil and No Shame! I've already ordered two more colors. This is a unique formula that is a cushiony, buildable pop of color that lasts all day. Sheer to medium pigment.

Hourglass Vanish Concealer: My ride or die will always be Tarte Shape Tape but this is a perfect competitor that is a smidge less drying and blurs lines beautifully.

MIssha Perfect Cover BB Cream: The perfect BB cream that's lightweight but also has fuller coverage. It has fantastic lasting power too. But here's how to make it AMAZING. Mix it with...


CoverGirl Advanced Radiance Foundation: When you mix the Missha BB with this CG foundation you get fuller coverage and staying power with a bonus glow. Even when set with powder. It's my new favorite beauty equation.

Hanhoo Blemish Patches: These hydrocolloid patches are very inexpensive but effective. Perfect for those blemishes that need all the gunk drawn out.

Pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches: I like to eye mask before I put on makeup to help with dark circles and crepey skin. These do the job perfectly.

ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Setting Mist: If you have dry skin, this is a delightful, excellent-smelling setting mist that works like a boss.

Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner: I assume the smell of this is where its superpower is found. No water needed and brushes come out spic and span wiped against a paper towel. Good news? The smell disappears.

Zelens Power D Treatment Drops: This was in my Caroline Hirons box and it is AMAZING. I'll let her explain why: "Firstly, it’s like a coat of armor for the skin, protecting against all environmental aggressors. It’s extremely rich in bio-mimetic lipids, helping maintain optimum moisture balance and thickening the skin. It helps your skin maintain a healthy lipid barrier, something you lose the ability to do yourself as you age. The result is immediately revitalizing  plumping out lines and producing the glow and ‘oomph’ that you may have lost."

Relyf CBD Oil (Full Spectrum, 500mg): For me, this has been a huge help in "calming down" after extroverted adventures. I use 3-5 drops only when full of adrenaline and I'm calm and ready for bed within 30 minutes. Learn more about CBD here

Band-Aid Blister Cushions: I snagged these on day two of many miles in NYC and not only did all pain disappear, but the cushion stayed on through a shower and for two more days. Gross, but effective. 

U-Shaped Pregnancy Body Pillow: You do not have to be pregnant to LOVE this pillow. I have never slept so comfortably since all my parts are now cushioned and hugged by this most favorite item purchased in the last year.
