My Go To Products For This Holiday Season

Hello gorgeous! I hope you are having a fabulous day or night wherever you are. 

Christmas is next week, can you believe it; this year has gone by so fast! Today I wanted to share with you, some of my go to beauty products for this holiday season, I find myself reaching for these products every morning while getting ready for the day. 

First things first, let's start with my base. I'm really loving this drugstore foundation by L'Oreal Paris. I've been using True Match in the shade N2 for a couple months now (off of a recommendation from Nichole Guerriero on YouTube). I find that it gives such a beautiful medium to full coverage with a natural finish; it's not too dewy, but definitely not matte. I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that this can be classified as my favorite drugstore foundation to date. If you've tried this foundation I would love to know your experiences with it. Most often I apply this with my real techniques expert face brush to really build up that coverage; I would say about 99.9% of the time I like to rock a medium to full coverage makeup look, so I don't find myself reaching for my beauty blender too much when I'm applying this foundation. 

Ok, I've fallen back in love with my Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I swear, I've just never found any other mascara that makes my lashes look so full, glamorous, and so long all at the same time! If you struggle finding a mascara that gives those effects, you need to try this one out. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed, it is definitely a holy grail item for me. I literally cannot stop using it, I'm obsessed! 

Let's just take a moment to talk about the NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp. It's glossy, it's a breathtaking shade of red (perfect for the holidays), it's so flattering on my skin tone, and I literally get so many questions and comments about it when I'm sporting it; people say that my lips look so plump and glossy! I literally died a little on the inside when I wore this for the first time, it's literally the definition of perfection! The wearing time is pretty impressive for being a gloss that's only $6.00! I totally need to pick up more of these glosses because I was blown away by this colour and formula! If you're into the opaque glosses, you need to run to Ulta and pick this up ASAP!

My poor little Naked Basics palette by Urban Decay has been loved so hard these last like two months! Believe it or not, I've been using this little guy to fill in my brows! I use the shades Faint and Naked 2 to accomplish this. I use a combination of the two colours to fill in the tail end of my brow and as I move towards the front end, I concentrate more of the Naked 2 shadow. If you would like to see a more in depth tutorial on my brow routine leave me a comment down below and I would be more than happy to do that for you guys!!

I've really been loving my Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow illuminator palette for this holiday season! I use Pearl and of course Champagne Pop the most in this palette, I really like to combine the two highlighters and then apply to my cheekbones, the tip of my nose, and my Cupid's bow; in other words I put it all over my face! It really gives such a beautiful glow and the hype is so real with this palette. I didn't see it in my local Sephora last time I was there but if you have a chance to get it online, I would definitely say the price is right and it's definitely worth it!
