Every now and then I end up with a bunch of beauty products that just don’t quite work for me. Whether they are samples I’ve received or items I’ve purchased that aren’t my favorite, it’s hard for me to throw them out. I prefer to find ways to make them wearable, even if it involves a little extra effort on my part. I like to turn it into a challenge- how quickly can I use up a bunch of products that I don’t really like? Lately I’ve been on one of those kicks and I’ve been trying to destash a bit and get rid of some things. My March Beauty Favorites were all super helpful in turning some not-so-great products into things that I actually like to wear. This month, I’ve been using a lot of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Smokeout, the Benefit They’re Real Remover, and The Face Shop’s Lovely Me:Ex Make Up Base in Violet.
Spring fashion is so much fun to me. Not only does it mean that I can ditch the winter layers and fleece tights, but it also seems like my wardrobe feels so much fresher. I love to wear lighter colors and bright spring pastels. Lately I’ve been loving lots of cream, light pink, and gold together as you can tell by this look. I recently got the chance to partner with JORD Wood Watches and I was so excited to find a watch that fit in with my new spring aesthetic.
Want amazing hair like Kendall Jenner?
My hair always needs a little extra help in March. Winter can definitely wreak havoc on my hair and by March it just can’t take it anymore. My hair starts to feel super dry and brittle and it tends to be full of static. This is usually the time of year that I break out all of my deep conditioners and cut off a few inches of my hair to make it feel healthy again. I recently got to try the Finesse Restore + Strengthen Moisturizing Collection and the opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. This is the collection that Kendall Jenner swears by to keep her locks looking thick and healthy (she apparently learned about it from Kim). Would it work just as well on my dry, damaged winter hair?
I love fun basics that you can throw together to create a super cute outfit in almost no time. This black and white striped tunic has been one of my favorites the last few months and I’ve been wearing plenty of light layers with it as the weather has gotten warmer. This gray sweater is perfect over tunics and I’ve been living in these crazy-soft skinny jeans. Add some suede boots and a sparkly statement necklace and I’m good to go!
Do you TLSP?
The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, or TLSP, is a great multi-purpose powder. Not only does it help set makeup, but it also keeps skin from looking oily as the day wears on. This award-winning powder now comes in two shades: Translucent (the shade I tried) and Translucent Medium Deep for darker skin tones. I usually don’t use setting powder but after trying this I can see why I should- it definitely made a big difference in how my makeup looked and how it wore throughout the day.
Do you love jewelry as much as I do? Do you constantly buy new jewelry only to find yourself tossing it aside after a few months? Would you like to try before you buy or play around with new jewelry and send it back when you get tired of it? If so, I have a fun subscription box for you to try. I’ve been using Rocksbox for about a year now and I love it! It’s been awhile since I posted anything about it (see my previous Rocksbox review) so I thought I’d give you guys an updated Rocksbox review, plus a promo code so you can try it yourself for free!
