I thought I’d share what’s on my wish list since my birthday is around the corner! These are some of the beauty products that I believe will become staples of my personal makeup collection this fall/winter season.
-ANYTHING PAT MCGRATH- Completely geeking out by the fact that her newest launch is here to stay. It actually hits Sephora on my actual bday next Friday! Her permanent collection is her “love letter to the makeup obsessed”. Years in the making, I want it allllll. Mothership: Sublime in the set is at the very top of my list along with Lavish and Anarkissed LuxeTrance Lipsticks!
-Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Mystery. I’m over the moon for this camel color. These shadows are a cinch to apply and have the perfect amount of shimmer. I think a haze of this color around the eye with loads of mascara will be one of my go-to fall/winter looks for the season.
Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder Aura Gloss in Honey– This is so beautiful. I’m a sucker for an eye gloss. Other than the color, I’m drawn to the gel-like consistency. Most eye glosses are too tacky and sticky and can get uncomfortable on the lid so this get should be a nice departure. You can also use it on your cheek bones and down the bride of your nose for a little shimmer.
Tatcha’s Water Cream- I was so surprised when I tried this tester in Sephora. The cream delivers a huge punch of hydration while minimizing-basically erasing- the sign of pores. Packed with green tea, algae, rice, Japanese Leopard Lily and Wild Rose, the scent of this cream is comforting, clean and refreshing. My skin was plump, felt hydrated and looked darn good-to where I didn’t want to cover it up with any makeup. Since that’s kind of been my jam lately, I would love to get a full size of this magical cream. (Please note the cutest tiny spoon to scoop out the perfect amount-adorable!)
La Mer Soft Fluid Longwear Foundation SPF 20. One of my favorite celebrity makeup artists Patrick Ta uses this or Armani on all of his clients. I was intrigued to see if my skin looked as radiant and fresh as his celebs and it really did. This is on my wish list due to the price tag! $110 for foundation but it’s truly worth the investment. This year with so many weddings and events on the calendar, when I DO wear makeup I want my skin to look the best it can!
Some non-related beauty products:
The Gravity Blanket. I am patiently awaiting the release of this blanket. I suffer from insomnia and anxiety and this blanket is supposed to help ease symptoms and increase deep relaxation, comfort and sleep. If you haven’t heard about this, watch the video here, believe me, you’ll want to get one too!: https://gravityblankets.com/pages/gshop?utm_source=adwordssearch&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=825163660&utm_content=213188769817&utm_term=the%20gravity%20blanket&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIscbjk6HD1gIVUYJ-Ch3IfA0sEAAYASAAEgI5P_D_BwE
South Congress Hotel Candles- my favorite. I love spending time in that hotel- the restaurants, lobby bar, and their signature scent that they pump through the air ducts keeps me coming back but I love that I can have it in my home! It’s so soothing.
Trader Joe’s/ HEB Grocery Gift Certificates- Cooking is one of my favorite ways to unwind. Hopefully some cold weather will come along soon so I can start cooking more of my favorite comfort foods!
And give this girl anything soft and comfy- loungewear from GapBody or an oversized (turtleneck) sweater–and I am a happy camper.
