February Beauty Favorites

February has a come and gone and I have once again found myself at Ulta way too many times for one month. Today I'm sharing a few things I've been loving this past month!

1. Disposable Mascara Wands - Yes, very weird favorite, I know. I've been doing makeup on friends and family much more frequently lately and I really want to be as professional as possible. I'm not a certified makeup artist or anywhere close to being one as a matter of fact but I still want to be as competent as I can. One of the biggest aspects in makeup artistry is sanitation so I picked up these disposable wands off Amazon. They were super cheap for a pack of 50 yet they perform so well! Definitely a staple in my kit now.

2. Victoria's Secret Super Soft Body Butter in "Coconut Milk" - This has been my SAVIOR these past winter months. My skin has been dryer than normal so I've needed something heavier than lotion and this has worked great for me. I've almost gone through the entire tub and I definitely will repurchase!

3. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara - I know that like everyone already knows how fabulous this mascara is but I was so ride or die for the Maybelline The Falsies Flared mascara that I just didn't want to believe there was a better mascara out there. I was wrong. Buy it.

4. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation - I actually purchased this a few months ago but I've really fell in love with it this month. I had never splurged on a luxury foundation before so I was extremely nervous but my doubts were soon put to rest. This foundation is incredibly lightweight for how much coverage it brings and I feel like it just melts into your face to give such a natural appearance.
I'm in the shade "Porcelain" (S/O to all my pale girls)

5. MAC Fix+ - I guess I received this as a gift for Christmas so it hasn't been just a February fav but I love it too much not to mention it. My favorite way to use this is by spraying it (generously) all over my makeup as a last step to help any excess powder soak into my face.

6. ELF Blush Brush - ELF brushes are seriously a gift from the gods. They are so affordable yet deliver amazing quality. I love the blush brush for highlighting, oddly enough. I think it gives a nice diffused glow to your cheekbones without looking like a zebra stripe (and it's $3!!!!)

7. NYX Contour Kit Shades in "Nectar" and "Sculpt" - I think the NYX Contour Kit is a great product all together but these are my absolute favorite shades. Nectar is such a pearly golden highlight, with a little bit of peach in there as well. 9 out of 10 times this is the highlight I am wearing. Sculpt is a great contour shade for my skin tone. I'm very fair so a warm contour shade can easily look orange on me but this is a great mix between a warm and cool taupe color that is great for bronzing or contouring on me!
