I have been using these 3 items constantly throughout January, and I’m sure I’ll continue to use them in February too (along with my fav shades from Fashion Nova pictured below.)
I used to be so into makeup and buy every new palette, lipstick, highlighter, you name it. Lately I’ve scaled back and only purchased a few new trending items, one of them being the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Holiday Palette.
There were mixed reviews on this palette but I honestly love how different each shade is. I normally stick to warm eyeshadows so the browns, peachy shades, and gold shimmer tones sold me. But it also has some wild shades like a shiny emerald, neon yellow, and deep blue which are very intriguing.
I’ve played around a little with some of the shades, but as you can probably see in the pic below I am completely in love with the glittery gold tones, which have been key for my go-to look in January, especially for New Years and other fun occasions.
I have gone back and forth between foundations. My usual top 3 foundations are Too Faced in “Sand”, NARS in “Stomboli“, and recently I’ve found that L’oreal True Match “W4” is indeed my true match. For all the outings and occasions throughout January, NARS has been my go to. I pair this with my Bare Minerals Stroke of Light concealer to highlight and the 2 blend together like a dream.
I am completely obsessed with nude lips. I rarely wear a bold lip, so I am always looking for the perfect nude. The MAC Lustre in Fresh Brew has been a part of my cosmetic holy grail since 2015.
I have an olive skin tone and some nudes with warmer undertones look pinkish, and honestly, kind of strange against my skin. This one is more brown and cool, but still gives me a nude lip that looks decent and more natural.
I wear this almost every single day, and usually pair with a lip moisturizer or lip gloss to avoid drying out my lips since it is -50 degrees where I live. ( LIPS LIPS LIPS)
I have really been on a mission to look and feel my best, so the glowing gold look with lots of highlight and nude, effortless, lips have been my go-to. To me this feels the most glam, but still naturalishhh. These 3 items have fit perfectly into my makeup routine.
