January Beauty Favorites

I can’t believe we are now a full month into 2016!! With January behind us, I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite beauty products that I have been using all month long! I went home to Boston for the Christmas holiday and made sure to head straight to Sephora and load up on beauty products. I purchased some old favorites and a new product that I have been LOVING. I cannot rave enough about these products which is why they easily made it to my favorites for January:

1.Teint Idole Ultra Foundation: This is one of my all time favorite foundations that i have been using for years! If you have dark skin, Lancome seriously has  you covered – they carry so many different shades and the one I use is such a perfect match for my skin (color 550 Suede). It gives a really natural finish and is super long lasting. It is definitely on the high end side, but is completely worth it for someone like me who, doesn’t wear foundation everyday and instead grabs for my bare minerals on a daily basis. Because of this, it lasts a really long time for me since I just use it for special occasions or for going out on the weekends. Anytime I try to stray away and test out other foundations, I usually always go back to this and it is always in my makeup collection. You really can’t go wrong with this one!

2.Mac Select Cover up Concealer: I’m probably coming close to 10 years of using this concealer and honestly it was love at first sight! When I first started wearing more high end makeup, this concealer was one of the first items I purchased. It covers the under eye area immaculately and looks super natural,  which I am all about. I have only tried using a different brand if concealer once before, which was from bobbi brown but found the consistency to be a bit too creamy and thick for my liking. This one from Mac is really nice if you use a feathery blending brush to blend it underneath your eyes for an airbrushed look!

3.Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel: This is brand new in my makeup rotation and it was one of the makeup items I picked up at my beloved Sephora and I really love it! Eye brow gel is a relatively new item that I have gotten into over the past year and I now don’t really like going without it to complete my makeup looks. I have pretty nice eye brows without anything on them, especially if I get them freshly threaded, but I find that using the tinted gel just helps to define them even more. In photos my eye brows tend to get washed out a bit, so using this product helps to darken them but not too much! The color that I bought of this is Granite and it is perfect for me, although in the tube it looks a little gray. I highly recommend this brand of eye brow gel for anyone looking to expand their makeup collections!

4.Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Lip Gloss: I am not sure that words could adequately express the love I have for this lip gloss. It is seriously one of the best I have ever used and I use it literally every day. The color I always get is called ginger, which is pictured and it is the prettiest, most natural pink ever. It works amazing with my skin tone and because it is so neutral I can layer it over most lipsticks. It is moisturizing and long lasting and is just so so nice!

Hope you find these picks useful and are able to check them out for yourself! xo
