I’ve been thinking about this for a while now and I’m finally ready to reveal the beauty products that changed my life. *cue dramatic music*
All of these products have changed the way I feel about my skin, hair and facial features.
They’ve made me see myself in a better light and enjoy moments in my beauty routine just that much more. These beauty products remind me why I love hair, makeup and skincare routines. They distract us in a positive way, reinforce self care rituals and allow space for self appreciation.
It’s important to read until the end because you know why? There’s info about a giveaway and a thank you.
Sunday Riley Good Genes
This lactic acid based chemical exfoliant is one of the most impressive skincare products I’ve ever used. It has an instant gratification factor, giving you visibly smoother, brighter skin after the first night you use it. It’s definitely pricy, but in this case, worth it. Read the full review here.
Foreo LUNA Mini
I was a die-hard Clarisonic user until I met Foreo. I hated having to buy brush heads and charge it and this eliminated not only those hassles but gave me a better, gentler cleansing experience. Read the full review here.
Weleda Skin Food
This is such a wonderful, all purpose skincare product. I love it for being an ultra-hydrating sleeping mask but I also put it on my hands, elbows and feet to wake up with softer skin. It also doubles as non-shimmery highlight, a la Katie Jane Hughes. Read full review here.
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
Whether you’ve watched me do my own makeup, or have been a client in my makeup chair, every application starts with this. I love it because it not only primes lids for eyeshadow and ensures there is no creasing or fading but it neutralizes redness, veins, darkness and any other discoloration on the lid, allowing your shadow’s true colors to shine through.
Glossier Cloud Paint
Along with Boy Brow, Cloud Paints are the best of Glossier, without a doubt. They can be mixed and applied to not only cheeks but lids and lips. They are unlike any other blush with their liquid, watercolor-like consistency and I sincerely enjoy using them and applying them. Read review here.
Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products
I haven’t found any other brand that understands authentic brow shade range the way ABH does. I genuinely love every product in the line and really appreciate the shade consistency across formulas. If you’re Soft Brown in Brow Wiz, you’d be Soft Brown in the Dipbrow too, for example. See them in action in this post.
Verb Ghost Oil
I’ll be honest; I don’t get as excited about hair products as I do about makeup and skincare. However! The first time I tried Verb Ghost Oil, I was blown away. When applied before blow drying, it gives my hair a beautiful, reflective shine and creates hair that looks so healthy that you would think it’s fake. Read review here.
You got thick hair and a lot of it? You got hair, just in general? This is what you want for brushing through wet hair straight out of the shower, easily and pain free. I love the original and the Speed Dry is also a must have because it truly does speed up my blow dry and smooth my hair. Read review here.
Ok, so check out it out. I am giving away these 6 favorites because I’ve been waking up for makeup for 6 years now, and maybe you have too. Whether you’ve been with me from the beginning in October of 2012 or just hopped on the W4M train, I truly can’t thank you enough. I know that giving away these 6 products could never properly thank you for sticking with me but I can promise you a few things.
- I’ll always do as many giveaways as I can.
- You will always know when a product has been sent to me for review.
- While I’ve been paid to create content, I’ve never been paid for a positive review. I never will be.
- If I ever change my mind about my product, I’ll go back and update the review.
- I am committed to only promoting cruelty-free brands. I made that decision a few years into my blog and it won’t change.
- I will answer as many of your questions as I can. I try to keep up the best I can while working full-time as a makeup artist.
- I appreciate you being here so much. Thank you, seriously.
