Can you guys believe it’s Thursday?! I feel like this week FLEW by. I woke up this morning and couldn’t believe that tomorrow is already Friday. I’m totally not mad at it though! A few days ago I finally got a new gym membership near my new place, so I’ve been going to the gym which has been so nice. It’s super hard getting back into it after a few months of not working out, but I feel so much better already even after a couple of workouts! I also just feel super productive. Maybe that’s why the week has gone by so fast! In other random news, OUR COUCH CAME TODAY. We’ve been couchless for a month now and I cannot tell you how happy I am. I’m currently typing this on the couch and it’s so nice. It really is the little things!
I’m definitely no beauty aficionado, but I do love trying new beauty products. I found quite a few that I’m really loving lately, so I thought I would share them with you guys! There’s a mix of drugstore and some non-drugstore brands, although typically most of my makeup is from the drugstore–I’ll splurge on something only if I REALLY love it. I love makeup, but it can get so expensive so fast! A girl’s gotta prioritize (and pay her bills!). Here are the products I’ve been using and loving lately:
I’m usually pretty chill when it comes to my brows. I fill them in, but nothing too crazy. I’ve tried a few brow pencils and found a cheap one that I liked…but then gave in to the hype and tried this. It’s SO good. For a simple brow gal like me, I love how easy this is. It’s one and done, and makes your brows look natural and full. It’s totally worth the splurge!
This product actually came in my Birchbox, and was the first real highlighter/illuminator that I used. I know, I know, I’m probably the last person on earth to jump on the highlighter bandwagon, haha. I really love this one though! I love the color and the super subtle glow! It’s a total staple in my beauty routine now.
I don’t use concealer that often, but thought I’d give a new one a try. For the price, I really like this one! It’s super easy to blend and doesn’t get cakey. When I’m going for a more full coverage look, I add this and it really makes my look complete–it definitely helps me look more awake on early mornings!
I’m not usually picky about mascara, but this stuff is. freaking. awesome. Like, it turns my scrawny lashes into thick, gorgeous full lashes with only a couple of coats!! It’s seriously magical and worth every penny.
I LOVE this primer! It’s super lightweight and gives my skin a dewy glow when I put it underneath my foundation. It gives your skin a little shimmer in the best way!
I’m obsessed with this primer. You guys, it’s a serious game changer!! I always struggle with making my lashes look full, and this has changed everything. When I want extra volume I’ll do a couple of coats of primer and voila! Lashes for dayssss. I couldn’t recommend it more!!
