Friday Favorites: Top 5 Beauty Products
I use these beauty products daily & highly recommend them!
Finding inexpensive beauty products can be difficult, but more importantly finding beauty products that work for you is an even harder task! I despise spending money on high-end makeup, so I also research to try to find “drugstore dupes” that are lower in price without comprising the quality. I personally have struggled with hormonal acne (sometimes painful cystic acne) during my pregnancies & still to this day. It has been an uphill battle trying to find products that won’t irritate my skin. Lately, I’ve noticed my skin has been VERY dry, so finding a foundation that doesn’t look “cakey” has been tough. Without further ado, I give you my Top 5 favorite beauty products! I would also like to note that I would never recommend products I don’t love!
For the Skin
1. Finding a face sunscreen that isn’t oily is not easy. I have finally found one that goes on nice & smooth. It doesn’t leave a white greasy film on your face & works great under your BB/CC Cream and/or foundation. It’s called Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion N’ Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face/Body. I received a sample size because I like to try out a face product before buying it. You can purchase it on Amazon here:
THE HOLY GRAIL OF FACE FOUNDATIONS is next! When I tell you I have searched for years to find a foundation, I am not kidding. The L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation is amazing! If you have dry skin, it’s definitely the one for you. If you have oily skin, I have also heard awesome reviews on the Pro-Matte foundation. If you have combination skin, you can mix the two together! Be sure to read reviews on color choice if you’re ordering online. I found mine on Amazon in the link below for an awesome price with a coupon code!
On top of the L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, I like to pat on the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. I start at the high points of my face & work my way in. This is not a full coverage foundation, but it does add a beautiful sheer glow to the skin! You can find this product here:
Next up is the highlight! I’ve been loving a subtle dewy look for my skin especially with summer coming up! I pat the Maybelline New York Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter on the high points of my cheekbones & on the inner corners of my eyes. It’s a wonderful drugstore highlighter! I found mine here:
For the Lashes
Last but definitely not least, the lashes! I have recently fallen in love with the Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara, Blackest Black. The wand is plastic which I love because I’m able to position my lashes where I need them to go without them clumping! If you remove some of the mascara from the wand, you can also use this mascara for your bottom lashes. I found mine here:
