Beauty Favorites of 2014

Recently I’ve had some requests to share my beauty and skincare favorites – over the next few months I hope to share with you all of my favorite finds both this year, and ever!  Today I thought I’d start with beauty (especially since I’ll personally be stocking up on some favorite sets during the holidays)…here’s what I’ve been using, and loving, in 2014.

Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment: I love these, I have for years, I just can’t give them up. I even tried buying some of the more inexpensive versions that have come out over the years – from Burt’s Bees, to Maybelline Baby Lips. They’ve all been fine, but Fresh’s version is king. My favorite colors are Passionfruit and Plum, and I’ve basically tried them all.

By the way – each year, Sephora comes out with a few great Fresh Sugar sets that lets you try out multiple colors.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy: My favorite blush. I’m a bit of a blush addict, and even though I usually prefer gel/cream textures, this one is still the best. Fantastic staying power (and I have oily skin), and an array of flattering colors. I like coral blushes, and I’ll use this one year round.

MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark: Like I mentioned earlier, I have oily skin. I brush this on over my t-zone each morning and again if I’m going out somewhere at night. Keeps the shine at bay and doesn’t clog my pores. I have pretty light skin but I still use the medium dark color – it’s pretty translucent and never shows up as too dark on me. Continue Reading
