I'm excited to introduce a new themed post on Gone Coastal...my beauty faves! I'm always so interested in learning what other people's "holy grail" products are because I love to experiment and try out new ones. It takes a lot of trial & error to find those amazing products, so I thought you may want to know about mine! I'm only going to feature my absolute favorites on these posts...I take this pretty seriously. :)
1. Arbonne Primer
This primer is incredible. I first started trying out products when my cousin started working for Arbonne. Shew threw a party at my apartment and my girlfriends and I got to sample all of the different products. I immediately fell in love with the primer and have not felt the need to switch to another one! It goes on light and makes your skin feel so smooth & flawless – the perfect base for your makeup! I highly recommend it.
2. CoverGirl + Olay Eye Rehab
I found this HG product by accident! My mom bought it and decided she didn't need it, so naturally I scooped it up (who doesn't love free stuff?!) and now I can't imagine my life without it – dramatic, I know. I have never found anything that covers my under eye circles as well as this stuff does. And it's a total drugstore steal at under $12. I love that it incorporates Olay product too, which makes my favorite face lotion! You won't regret this non-splurge.
3. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat in Luminous Radiance
I'm SURE you've heard the hooplah about this concealer-meets-luminizer. Everything you've heard is true! This really is amazing. I put it on over my CoverGirl concealer under my eyes and it really just brightens the whole area up, giving you that movie star kind of glow. It's not cheap, I know, but a little goes a long way and for me it's worth every penny!
4. NARS The Multiple in Luxor
This might seem like overkill to some, but I can't live without this luminizer. Instead of under my eyes like the YSL luminizer, I use this NARS stick on the tops of my cheekbones – right where the light falls on your face. It gives such a pretty sheen! I also dab it down the middle of my nose for a little extra glow. I'm anxious to try some of the other shades this comes in!
5.Tarte BB Tinted Treatment
Last, but definitely not least is my "foundation"...that's not really a foundation. I don't really like to wear a full-coverage foundation (just for special events) because I have pretty good skin and TONS of freckles, so this super-light BB cream does the trick as my every day stuff. It has just enough coverage so that I feel put together but not over done. It is very smoothing and blends really nicely into your skin. My friend recommended it to me a couple of years ago and I can't imagine finding anything better.
Okay so, I couldn't fit ALL of my favorite face products in this post..so there will need to be a part 2! I would love to know if you found this post helpful or if you'd like to see more beauty faves in the future!
What are your favorite foundations, concealers & luminzers?!
