Dermablend Continuous Correction CC Cream SPF 50+

I love a lightweight BB cream, but when my complexion is acting up (i.e. I’m experiencing breakouts, redness or a dull tone), I reach for a CC cream. This one from Dermablend is a new favorite. With a full-coverage, dewy finish, it makes my skin look flawless and even, while feeling more breathable than a classic foundation. I love that it contains SPF 50 sun protection and works to improve skin’s radiance over time, too.

NYX Professional Bare With Me Luminous Cheek Serum

Dewy blush is by far my favorite makeup product to wear in the spring, and this luminous cheek serum has become my new go-to. It has a hydrating, almost glossy finish that instantly brightens and wakes up my entire face, and I love how the formula blends out into a gorgeous flush.

Kosas Brow Pop Dual-Action Defining Pencil in Medium Brown

I’m very picky when it comes to brow products, but I’m so happy I gave this pigmented pencil a try. The shade matches my brow color to a tee, and it glides effortlessly over my sparse areas. I also love the pretty pink packaging that seriously makes me want to reach for it everyday.

Armani Sì Intense Eau de Parfum 

While some people love spring cleaning, I am a sucker for a fresh, new scent. I wanted something floral and light for the spring. When I heard that Giorgio Armani released a perfume that would include notes of blackcurrant, rose and patchouli, I knew I needed to get my hands on it. Spoiler alert: the fragrance did not disappoint. There’s something about its citrusy undertone that makes me feel confident every time I wear it.

Essie Berlin The Club

As a self-proclaimed nail polish addict, I have more shades than I’ll ever know what to do with. But that hasn't stopped me from constantly being on the hunt for the purple nail color of my dreams. That was until I came across Berlin The Club. It’s the perfect rich purple shade that doesn’t lean black or red in tone.I have a feeling it will become a permanent top-shelf pick for me. 

YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture Satin Lipstick in Le Nu

Even though I’m mainly staying home these days, sometimes I’m in the mood to pop on a rich nude lip color for virtual meetings or outdoor activities, and this has been one of my favorites. Not only do I think it would be flattering on many skin tones, but the creamy texture and shiny finish is sure to please.

Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Stick

I haven’t been an eyeshadow girl for years, but now that I’m in a protective face mask so often, I’m feeling the temptation to dress up my eyes. I’m obsessed with these gorgeous easy-to-use shimmery eyeshadows. They’re so pigmented and the bold, vivid shades pop against my caramel skin tone so brilliantly. I love that I can use them all over my lids, or use them like a liner if I want a simpler look. Trust me, coming from someone who can get pretty lazy about doing her makeup, having shadow that you can apply this easily is game changing.
