Sunday Standouts #4 | Beauty Favorites


Sunday Standouts #4 | Beauty Favorites

It’s been a busy week around here! Paige was here to share this gorgeous Glitter DIY Desk Accessory, we’re gearing up for our New Years resolutions by tricking ourselves to drink more water, getting our fitness on, and looking at these fabulous Holiday Beauty Sets! We’ve got some fabulous things coming in the next few weeks but I wanted to make sure I took some time out to share this weeks Sunday Standouts with some of my beauty favorites!

BARIELLE NAIL STRENGTHENING CREAM – This is by far one of my favorite nail creams, I have been using it for about two years now and it’s everything you would want in a strengthening cream. I have significantly less breaks and cracking in my nails.

MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS – These are my jam. I have one or more of each kind that they have out. Super moisturizing and the packaging is the cutest!

REVIVE EYE SERUM – I am sort of a serum junkie and I have been trying some different ones lately. I have really been loving this one. This advanced formula helps rebuild volume and recontour the delicate eye area, filling in hollows and significantly diminishing the look of dark circles, under-eye bags and crepiness.

ELF BLUSH – This is in the shade “Gotta Glow” and it is one of the best powdered highlighters I have ever used. You can totally add this to your highlight and contour routine!

BURTS BEES LEMON BUTTER – Do you need something for your cuticles? Go get you some! I have been obsessed with this for weeks. It was in my Moisturizing Essentials post and I have not looked back. Holy grail material, for sure!

MARYKAY MASCARA – I lurve me some mascara and this one is perfection! Nice volume and it doesn’t hurt that it’s this AWESOME chick’s favorite!

MEET MATTE – I have been using this from theBalm for pretty much as long as I can remember. I use it as an all over the lid shade, a brow highlight, and sometimes I even use it as my actual highlighter.

VINCE CAMUTO AMORE – I got this in last months Glossybox and it smells absolutely amazing. I have been wearing it daily and I’ve already ordered another! It’s amazing.


The Best Hair Serum

Zero Frizz Keratin Corrective Extra Strength Hair Serum

Do you suffer from frizz? I definitely do and I am always looking for products to tame the crazy frizz party that seems to happen on my head. I’m sort of a serum junkie and it doesn’t just mean for skincare, hair serums are some of my favorite things. I was excited to try out the Zero […]

Easy Twisted Side Poof | Hair Tutorial

s For me, working from home makes it’s very easy to lose track of the last time I put on real clothes, did my makeup or brushed my hair. I just get into that mindset of “What’s the point? I’m not leaving the house anyway.”. I get there sometimes and it kind drives me crazy. […]
