    Update Your Makeup Bag with this Fall Eyeshadow Palette | Sigma Beauty

    Not only is it time to swap our closets for fall, we should be making the swap in our makeup bags as well! To be honest, my normal beauty routine in the spring and summer is a throw-on-and-go type of situation. BUT fall beauty trends are SO much fun! Velvety textures and shimmery powders give dull skin a new life while darker pigments give lips and eyes a sultry feel. I’m loving the Sigma Beauty fall eyeshadow palette and lip colors which offer a little bit of both! Plus, Sigma Beauty products are ALL paraben-free and formulated without sulfates, mineral oil or casein. 

    See which products and colors I’m most excited about in today’s full post!

    Target Beauty On A Budget | Formula 10.0.6

    You guys know that I love a good face mask (read my previous face mask review here), but sometimes those masks can cost a pretty penny! I realized after writing my last mask post that most of them were $30 and over, so I wanted to scout out some budget-friendly options that can be just as indulgent and beneficial. I discovered Formula 10.0.6 at Target, and it’s the perfect fit for anyone looking for beauty on a budget. Every single product is under $10 y’all – meaning you can try as many as you want without breaking the bank! I’m recapping my favorite Formula 10.0.6 masks in today’s full post.

     Plus, if there’s anything I love more than a face mask… it’s a good Target binge on the weekends!

    BEST Beauty Products On Sale | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

    When it comes to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I always go for the shoes first because those really fly off the shelves (and internet) first. But once I’ve secured all the closet essentials, I settle in and REALLY enjoy clicking through the beauty products on sale.

    I’m a bit of a product hoarder, and once I find my favorites, I tend to be a loyal fan. SO many of my favorites are included in the Nordstrom Sale this year. To prove it, I literally whipped out all of my products at home for this post – I even forgot to include some bc they were packed for the beach already (T3 hair dryer). No collage for this post – these are real deal personal favorites that I use on a normal basis!

    I’ve talked a lot about Supergoop in previous posts – it’s a personal favorite of mine. LOVE their setting spray and – their CC Cream is one thing I swear by.

    NeuLash + NeuBrow

    I’ve tried both the lash serum and brow serum and can assure you that with normal use, these products really work. Definitely worth bundling up for the BOGO price during the sale period.

    Caviar Haircare

    I love trying new shampoo and conditioner brands. Currently using this one and have both full-size bottles packed up for the beach!

    Lancome Eyelash Primer + Mascara

    I use the Lancome Cils Booster lash primer before applying mascara. I prefer the smaller sample/travel size because the shorter length gives you more control.

    Living Proof Products

    Always have been a fan of Living Proof – love the way their products smell. I use the anti-frizz oil – with Louisiana humidity, I need all the help I can get!

    Laura Mercier

    Obsessed with Laura Mercier. I’ve mentioned the setting powder numerous times, but I’m also loving the new foundation primer.

    Illuminage Mirror

    Just got this mirror in a press package and am excited to start using it at my vanity!

    Me Products

    I basically have the entire Me product line. (Insert monkey emoji covering his eyes.) I did an entire post last year on the blue light blemish device. I also have the silk eye mask and pillowcases. I JUST snagged the hair removal device!

    Aveda Favorites

    You can see my full post on my Aveda favorites here. Not only do they smell amazing, they’re natural and REALLY work. Aveda travel sizes are always on hand in my suitcase.


    Murad is a pretty new brand for me, but I’m currently trying out their oil diminishing mask. Sounds like a much-needed product for southern summers! Have heard great things about a few of the other products too.

    ARCONA Beauty

    I discovered ARCONA Beauty last September at fashion week. I started out using the Triad Toner Pads which are a cult favorite!
