The Beauty Files: Repeat Beauty Buys

Do you ever find yourself in a deep hole of watching endless YouTube beauty tutorials? (Please tell me it’s not just me…) Last weekend I was just looking for a quick contouring video and before I knew it I had spent an hour learning to contour, strobe and highlight my eyes. A little make-up overload. Even though I do love to try and play with new products, there are some constants in my beauty stash that I purchase over and over and over… My tried and trues.


Sharing My Sole_Best Beauty Buys

1 // Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes
I discovered this BB cream about a year ago and it’s the perfect consistency and coverage to eliminate any dark circles or under eye bags. Sometimes I’ll just quickly swipe this on if I’m running out and don’t want to put on a full face of makeup.

2 // Make Up Forever HD Microfinish Powder + Pro Airbrush
This light powder is the best finishing touch to keep everything in place and oil free, plus this brush is extra fluffy and soft.

3 // Benefit Speed Brow Gel
Occasionally my eyebrows can get a little cray, so a quick swipe of this gel keeps them in place.

4 // Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Naked
I love all the Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, but this single color pot is a perfect base. I use this on a daily basis and consistently rebuy it.

5 // Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop
This is a new-to-me product, but I’ve already decided I’m going to buy it It is the PERFECT highlighter. Just a tiny bit goes a long way and just a light swipe highlights my cheekbones.

6 // Shiseido Eyelash Curler
Simply my favorite eyelash curler that I’ve used for years.

7 // Maybelline The Falsies Mascara + Clinique High Impact Mascara
This is my mascara one-two punch that I’ve used for at least five years now. I’ve tried other mascaras along the way, but I always come back to this combination. I start with a coat of the Maybelline for length and finish with a swipe of Clinique to add volume.

8 // Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Rose Sugar
This gloss is the perfect shade for my olive skin tone and I always have a tube or two in my purse.



p.s. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off tomorrow for cardholders (that means if you have a Nordstrom Card you get to shop early!) and opens to the public on July 22nd. If you’re not familiar, it’s pretty much the biggest sale of the year. I’m planning on grabbing some beauty exclusives during the sale and you can browse the full catalog here. I’ll be posting a big round-up of best of sale goodies this week!
