Fist off I have to give a shout out to Makeup Geek. I ordered these brushes are the end of December (along with some more eye shadows of course!). I've never tired any Makeup Geek tools before so I was interested in seeing what these brushes were like. I'M IN LOVE! They are so soft and densely packed. They blend makeup easily and effortlessly. Right now in my day to day rotation I'm using (start from top to bottom)
-Face buffer brush - I use this for my blush (which is also makeup geek)
-Angled stippling brush - I use this for my contour
-Cheek highlighter brush - I use this to set my concealer with powder
-Soft dome brush - I use this to put eye shadow in my crease and blend it out
I highly recommending giving Makeup Geek brushes a try, they have many more available on their website and I'll definitely be ordering more for myself!
Next up is a product I've had since October and I just don't know how I lived without it. This is the Clarisonic Plus, I use this once a day (typically at the end of the day) to cleanse my face. It cleans so well and my skin texture has been amazing since I've started using this.
Another skincare product, which was mentioned in my current skincare routine. This is the Luna night oil, I've been using it about twice a week and it just adds a boost to my night time routine.
This is my only hair favorite for the month, the Living Proof dry shampoo and Pureology dry conditioner. This is the perfect pair for second or even third day hair. Since I've been lightening my hair I've been trying to wash it less. My hair is sooo damaged and I just took 3 inches off! I've been trying to only wash my hair 2-3 times a week. These two products defiantly make that possible by extending my styles.
I've just recently been getting into eye masks and so far this is my favorite. This is the Shiseido WrinkleResist 24, I use this about once a week with my skincare. Its really smoothed and brightened up my under eyes. I was getting fine lines and little bumps under my eyes, my solution was just to cover them up with concealer (which really isn't a solution). I wanted something that would make the fine lines and bumps to go away permanently so I didn't have to use so much concealer everyday. After about 4 uses I started to see this product work!! So if you decide to try this give is some time...you wont see any miracles after the first use.
This is a product that has been mentioned a few times on my blog, the Beauty Blender!! I have two on the go right now, they are amazing. I use them for my foundation and concealer. This just gives you the prefect airbrushed finish. I was using it to set my loose powder but I've switched to a pressed powder so now I use a brush.
Last off is my fitness favorite for the month...and of course it's 21 Day Fix! I love this program. It is easy to follow the workout schedule, the workouts are only 30 min so they are prefect to fit into your day. Right now I'm training for a marathon, you can check out my week 1 update, as mentioned in my blog post I'm using a combination of 21 Day fix, interval running and long slow distance running to train. This program has been perfect for me, not only have I lost weight with this program but I it has helped with my leg strength!
