Hey Ya’ll! Hillary here. We’re starting a Friday favorites post every Friday where I’m going to name the top three things I’m obsessed with every week! Whether its beauty products, fashion trends, home decor or just a new tv show I think you should watch you can find it here on Fridays!
Part of my job as a social media and website manager requires me to be on Social Media and Pinterest throughout a big part of my day, add this in with a lot of Bravo tv shows (I watch a lot of Housewives) and I get to see a lot of upcoming fashion trends and beauty products which also leads me to a lot of online shopping (sorry mom). ANYWAY’S, I figured I would put all of that to good use and share the amazing stuff I try (and actually use) with all of you!
This week is all about beauty products. With Spring and Summer months approaching fast (if you’re like me) everything needs a little bit of a makeover. (Our house, outfits, skin, makeup, lives) Just kidding on the last one!
First up is self tanning mouse. Self tanning scared the you know what out of me because I was scared I would do it wrong or be streaky but, at the ripe old age of 26, I’ll stay out of anything that gives me wrinkles and the other bad stuff that comes with to much time in a tanning bed.
I’m a big fan of getting spray tans (if you get the right ones you don’t look orange) but sometimes you don’t have time for that…so the St. Moriz tanning mouse is a good alternative. Word of advise: ALWAYS USE A MIT. It prevents the streaks that your hand would leave and you can see where you’re putting it. Also, you only have to leave this stuff on for four hours take a quick shower and you’re bronzed for the next 3-4 days. The price tag isn’t bad either.
Next up is my new favorite nail polish. Light pinks and whites have been my go to lately and this one by OPI is my favorite. They have this color available at most salons if you like to get gel but I’m a big fan of at home manicures so three coats of this and a steady hand gets you a good manicure for a week or so.
Last but not least for this week is my favorite cc-cream/foundation! IT Cosmetics makes some of the best products in my opinion and I use this just about everyday.
They say its a cc-cream but I use it as foundation, its buildable coverage so you can use as much or as little as you want! It also contains SPF so thats a plus. You can buy this at Ulta or Sephora but they also have it on amazon for free shipping. (We’re amazon prime addicts in this family if you haven’t figured that out yet)
Thats it for this weeks Friday favorites! See y’all next week!
