What’s In my Makeup Bag: January

What's In My Makeup Bag

The following content includes referral links. Read my disclosure policy for more info. So far this month, it’s been all about a subtle, natural glow, mauve lips and… stepping a bit outside my comfort zone with shimmery, metallic eyeshadows. I have a lot of love for matte finishes, especially in the eyeshadow department, but I have to say that I now have a newfound appreciation for pretty shimmers.

My Favorite At-Home Beauty Gadgets + Tools

A natural dry brush, a Salux cloth, a jade roller- these are some of my “every day” beauty tools that I reach for on daily basis.

The thing about trying out and testing new products is that they don’t always work as good as you hoped, or it takes a while to figure out how to make them work for you.…
