Monthly Beauty Buys



Spring seems so far away but by the time February rolls around, I’m already prepping my wardrobe and beauty routine for warmer temps. Premature? Probably. But by adding a pop of color to my beauty routine, I already feel better! I busted out the orchid lip gloss, bronze and blush hued palettes and cheeky jewelry! Perfect for a month filled with date nights and stolen kisses.

I’m retiring my dark lipsticks for bright-hued colors like this Lancome lip gloss in Intense Fuchsia. The color is perfectly saturated to make a statement but soft enough as a gloss to not overpower. It’s a perfect change from the vampy colors I tend to gravitate towards during the winter months.

I’ve tried perfecting the cat eye and love how a bit of eyeliner {and mascara} can transform your whole look. Fabuliner’s liquid eyeliner has a perfectly sized tip for easy use. This, paired with an orchid lip is both feminine and playful and perfect for a date night.

This Bobbi Brown set has been my go-to for years. I love the ease of picking your own set of four, combining both blush and eyeshadow. I tend to gravitate towards colors that warm my skin tone like blush, nude, bronze and pinks. These colors tend to look effortless and natural. My recent color palette has consisted of copper sand, rose gold, bronzed pink and bahama brown. And I can’t help but want to wear this lip necklace every day this month!

    I bought the Yon-Ka toner after you suggested it a few weeks ago and it is AMAZING! It has completely transformed my dry flaky winter skin. Thank you so much!
