March Beauty Favorites


It's been a while since I've done a beauty favorites roundup, but surprisingly, a lot of my favorites have remained the same since Summer. Lately it's been all about efficiency and my love of cream products (which normally go hand-in-hand). I have a feeling that these favorites will continue into the Spring and Summer months as the temps rise. 


FACE

I have been wearing the Loreal Infallible Glow foundation nonstop since I tried it back in Summer. It's gone through two re-purchases (albeit in lighter shades) and I haven't swapped it for anything else since. This is major for me, considering 2016 was filled with trying all kinds of foundations. I just love how lightweight the formula is and the natural glow it gives. I did a full post of my thoughts back in September and they still stand strong.

Continuing with the glow factor: the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Cheek Illuminator in Golden Girl is another love of mine. I use it on my cheek bones and forehead to add a warm, yet natural, glow. The formula is so creamy so it blends perfectly into the skin. I also find that the coloring is perfect for my complexion. Unfortunately I'm nearing the end of my stick and it seems to be out of stock online so I'm looking for replacement options. So far my eyes are on the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks or the Wander Beauty On-The-Glow Bronzer stick. Please let me know if you have any other recommendations!

Lastly I've been using a combo of Pearl and Champagne Pop from my Becca x Jaclyn Hill palette. I find that all of my golden highlighters are too intense for my winter skin, so the lighter mix allows for a proper match. I pat the mix with my fingers across my cheek bones, nose, and cupids bow for a healthy illumination.

EYES

Surprisingly there is only one eye product this month that I've been really going for and it is the MAC Pigment in Tan. This powder is such a beautiful tan shimmer and is so simple to throw on and go. On weekends I sweep the smallest amount across my lids, add a healthy layer of mascara, and head out the door. This is one of those products that will genuinely last for ages as there's so much in the little tube.

LIPS

Another Tanya Burr product makes its way up the list. This time it is her lip gloss in Picnic in the Park. It's another great product to throw on and go. I love glosses but hate when I have to layer a color underneath. With this gloss I need a swipe across the lips to get the perfect blend of pigmentation and shine.

SKIN

Come winter-time my hands go into full panic mode. Blame it on the heaters or the hot showers but they're normally in desperate need for hydration. Enter the L'Occitane hand cream in Cherry Blossom. I got a trio of these hand creams in my stocking and have been using them nonstop. This particular scent is my favorite. I keep the tube bedside and apply it every night before I fall asleep. In the morning my hands feel moisturized and so soft.
