Friday Favorites: Current Must-Have Beauty Favorites

Current Must-Have Beauty Favorites

Happy Friday!  I wanted to start a new series called Friday Favorites.  I’ve seen a few of my favorite bloggers do similar series on their blogs and it’s such a fun idea!  Every Friday I’ll be sharing my favorite items– beauty, fashion, motherhood, pregnancy and whatever else I’m currently loving.  It’s been awhile since I shared my current must-have beauty favorites so I figured that I’d kick off my Friday Favorites with a run down of all the beauty products I’m currently loving!

This isn’t everything that I use on a regular basis but these are the products that I cannot live without.  Some are products I’ve been using forever (and you’ve probably heard me talk about before) and others are new favorites.  This is probably going to be a lot longer than the rest of my Friday Favorites posts but just bear with me– It was so hard to narrow this one down haha.

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin // this is one that if you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ve heard about a million times but it’s truly the #1 product that I couldn’t live without.  My hair used to be so damaged and dried out but since using this (religiously) it’s super healthy + shiny.  I’ve tried a ton of different leave-in products but nothing compares to this one.  I completely swear by it!

Living Proof In Shower Styler // I just started using this a month or two ago and LOVE it.  It’s perfect for wavy hair and gives your air-dried hair so much body while enhancing your natural waves (say goodbye to flat, frizzy hair!)  I will say that it worked better for me when my hair was longer but it still does wonders for me even with shorter hair.

Batiste Dry Shampoo // Hands down the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used.  I always buy the hint of color for brunettes which is PERFECT for darker hair because it doesn’t leave behind any white residue.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer // Really light coverage but perfect for summer days or days you don’t want to wear much makeup.  I love that it gives me a little bit of color correction (and SPF) but doesn’t look like I’m wearing any makeup.  FYI- it does have a lot of yellow undertones so keep your skin tone in mind before buying!

IT Cosmetics CC Cream // My favorite for everyday wear.  I just started using it and LOVE IT.  It goes on so smooth and has just the right amount of coverage.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation // Hands down the BEST full coverage foundation.  I’ve been using this for a few years now and it’s so good for all day makeup.  It is REALLY full coverage so I definitely don’t use it everyday but it’s perfect for all day events, photo shoots or any other time I need long lasting coverage.  If you’re not using it everyday, it’ll last you awhile so it’s definitely worth the $ in my opinion!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara // Probably one of the most popular mascaras out there but it’s definitely worth the hype.  If you haven’t tried it before you need to!  

NYX Micro Brow Pencil // If you use the Anastasia Brow Wiz, this is such a good dupe!  Don’t get me wrong- I love the brow wiz (and probably prefer it over the NYX pencil) but they are incredibly similar and the NYX pencil is just under $10 (compared to $21 for the brow wiz).  I typically use the NYX brow pencil for everyday wear and the Brow Wiz for special occasions. 

Laura Mercier Setting Powder // If you want to keep your makeup looking flawless all day long then you need this.  I have combination skin and my t-zone gets incredibly oily throughout the day but this powder helps keep my oily areas under control while keeping my foundation and concealer looking flawless.

Clarisonic Mia // This is a bit of an investment but totally worth it.  I don’t know how I ever washed my face before having a Clarisonic haha.  When I don’t use it I feel like my face isn’t truly clean.  It gives me the best wash and leaves my face feeling so fresh and clean!

Cucumber Gel Mask // Another product I just started using but absolutely love. Pop it in the refrigerator for a little bit before applying to make it feel even more refreshing!

Soap & Glory Scrub of Your Life // I LOOOOVE this scrub.  It smells so good and seriously leaves your body feeling so exfoliated and smooth.  I always make sure to use this the day before shaving my legs to get the smoothest shave too.

Hempz Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Moisturizer // This smells heavenly.  It keeps my skin feeling so hydrated and I especially love it during pregnancy when my skin always feels stretched out and itchy! 

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin // Okay. Hear me out here– this is THE BEST lip moisturizer ever.  Everyone thinks I’m totally crazy until they try it but it works wonders!  Don’t knock it til you try it, right?!  I use it every night before bed and it keeps my lips so smooth and hydrated.  If you’re a breastfeeding mama, you probably already have some laying around somewhere and if not, it’s so cheap!  I also buy the mini tubes to keep in my purse, baby bag, etc.


Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I mentioned and also if there’s anything specific you’d like me to post about in my Friday Favorites.  Hope you have a great weekend!
