You guys! I can not believe today is March 1st! My 26th birthday is in 8 DAYS!! What?! January dragged on and on and February was gone in a blink! Today, I’m sharing with you some things that I was loving for my February Favorites. After reading, if this is something you’d like me to do every month, leave me a comment below! Your feedback means the world to me! These products I just had to share my love for and for you to try them for yourself!
As I’ve said before, January is one of my favorite months of the year because the atmosphere is so positive and pure around us, there’s so much hope and goal setting from all and every one has new aspirations they want to fulfill. How awesome, right?! One of my goals for the year was to continuously try and test out new makeup products. (Yes I can get stuck in a repetitive makeup routine- but “when it ain’t broke, don’t fix it????”) Well February I did just that and have 3 amazing products to share along with some fashion trends I’m loving!
Blush tones and stripes- they’re HUGE this spring and I’m obsessed. I’ve always loved a blush tone and so far for pre-spring, my closet definitely shows it. Pastels have always been in style, especially for spring, but blush tones take it to another level. You don’t have to go above and beyond to stay on trend this season, we’re seeing blush in shoes, workout clothes, tops, pants- all the things!
Stripes- on everything. Flannels, pants, tanks, jumpsuits, dresses- you name it, it’s being striped. Stripes are ranging in all colors of the rainbow & specifically in vertical stripes because they give length and slimness to the body. Stripes, although in “style” right now are always a classic staple in my book.
Coty Airspun translucent loose face powder– I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago or so about how much I loved this product. After more time spent in front of the mirror, it’s a staple, for sure. I have no idea why I’ve slept on this product for so long but it is hello, $6, virtually color proof, but sets over all makeup seamlessly and ceaselessly. How?! Why?! Do we care why?! No because it’s fabulous on a brush (I use the Morphe E1)! Lol I’ve used this over cc cream, full coverage foundation, light coverage and over concealer and the result is the same- flawless skin. It’s a great great product for the price. This powder also comes in a range of skin tones, but I prefer translucent, myself. I like to set the perimeter of my face with this powder and set my under-eye with a brightening powder found on my matte makeup routine here. By using it this way, it prevents transfer from my makeup onto clothes and also absorbs any oils I have and just improves the longevity of my makeup.
Makeup Forever Step1 Skin Equalizer, Smoothing Primer– this stuff is magic. I received a sample size from Sephora and it lasted me for weeks, even while using it every day. I of course purchased a full size as soon as I finished it up! I apply a pea sized amount on my middle fingers, rub them together just enough to spread out the product a bit then use circular motions to rub it onto my pores in my t-zone around my nose, chin and forehead between the brows. It’s essentially a clean slate for my skin and who doesn’t love smoother skin?! I haven’t noticed a difference in the longevity of my makeup at all but love how smooth it makes my skin. Im in love with makeup that not only does what it says, but gives you a little more pep in your step!
And finally, The Jouer Cosmetics Concealer. Shape tape, meet your match. Actually, meet your replacement. What can I say other than I know a great product when I use one. Mark my words, this will be the concealer of the year! If you’ve ever used the shapetape concealer, picture of that product and add more creaminess, hydration, even LESS creasing and a feather-like, weightless feel- and you have Jouer. I’m wearing the shade Chiffon and it just masks any dark circles and tired eyes better than any concealer I’ve ever used in my 9 years as a makeup artist aaaandd I like the brightness this shade brings to my under eyes. The packaging is also luxurious and sleek. Best. Makeup. Product. Ever. Shop my link and get 15% off your first order with Jouer!
