I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and had some wonderful time off! I know I had a much needed break from school, although I’m excited to be going back for my final semester. We’re already a week into January, but I wanted to write a quick post on my December faves!
Grace Organic Antioxidant Toner With Cranberry and White Tea- I have mixed feelings about this toner, but I really wanted to mention it. I only use this in the morning, but I do not notice any changes on my skin. I don’t have very problematic skin as is, and I’m very young, so I’m not sure if that’s why I don’t notice any changes. I like to apply it before my makeup because I have very dry skin and I apply this to hydrate my skin, although my skin still remains quite cracked even after a spritz of this toner followed by my moisturizer. However, I do love the ingredients in this toner, as its full of antioxidants that are great for your skin. Not only this, I love using this as a setting spray. Since my skin is dry, I only use a small amount of powder, followed by this spray, and my skin looks so dewy. I think I might try a new toner when this bottle runs out, but overall I’m very pleased with this toner’s natural ingredients and the way it makes my skin look.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eye Shadow, Nude- This has been my go-to eye shadow palette while I’ve been home for break. I’ve been really lazy when it comes to doing my makeup, and this palette makes doing my eyeshadow quick and easy. I use the lighter end in the center of my lid, the middle shimmery portion on the center of my lid, and the darker browns on the outer portion of my lid, and just blend together. It’s a quick look that is very shimmery and pretty. Very nice for the holiday season!
It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette- I used to only use the blush and bronzer in this palette, but I recently started using the powder and I love it! The blush is the perfect shade of pink and is very natural. The bronzer is a bit dark, but is a great contour color. The powder is great for setting your makeup. I have very dry skin, but this seems to apply very nicely and not cakey at all. I only apply a small amount on my face and under my eyes and it really is working out for me better than any other powder I’ve tried.
Hoodies– Like I said, I’m lazy during the holiday season. I’m on my break so all I’ve really worn/bought are comfy hoodies. I linked a super cute one I got from Forever 21!
Faux fur– I love the faux fur trend. I linked a faux fur Forever 21 hoodie, but here’s another inexpensive one I bought that I’ve received tons of compliments on!
The Killers– The Killers are my favorite band and I’m so excited because I’m seeing them live in just a few short days! All month I’ve just been jamming out to their setlist!
Stranger Things– I’m a little late, but I just finished watching season 2. I liked the first season a lot more, but I still binge watched this season in a matter of like two days. It’s such an addicting show. What should I watch next?
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and enjoy the rest of your winter!
