I did a desk clear-out of my vanity area and fished out some of the under-appreciated items from the depths of my drawers. Everything I love is lost in drawers, as the song goes. Except Matt Berninger probably didn’t mean makeup. Ahem.
A quick post to highlight some of my favorites this month! As you might have probably noticed, I had a “beauty slump” in the past few weeks. I’m getting back into it now, but I was pretty into having a routine this month. I’ve got a few makeup bits here, but most of it is some type of skin and body care.
Quick post of an FOTD, in which I had to force myself to wear a non-neutral lip and not regret it. (It worked out okay.) I was also watching a video on highlighters the night before and it made me really want to break out my BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector again, so I did.
This was supposed to be a New Old Face post, but I realized that most of these products, I’ve used quite a bit already anyway, there was no “new” factor to it. Anyway, I wore this on our Taiwan trip. I didn’t remember to take many FOTDs, so here’s one I did remember taking, heh. After years of overpacking makeup when I travel, I finally realized that going with a neutral eye is the best way to go. You can pair it with so many things like a bold lip or pops of color, and so on. I didn’t have to powder my face, either. I quite like this base combo!

Hello fair people of the Internet! I come bearing gifts. So, this giveaway has been in the works for a few months now, but between the holiday rush and international postage times, well… let’s just say it took a while. Although I meant for it to be a holiday giveaway, I’m opting to do a Galentine’s Day Giveaway, instead. For this round, I’m randomly picking 3 winners who will each get a bag filled with MAKE goodies. 🙂 MAKE is an amazing company and they put 33.33% of all direct purchases from We See Beauty towards the We See Beauty Foundation, which establishes and supports cooperatives. One of the reasons why I am so glad that I get to do this giveaway is knowing that it may lead to further support for a company that values craftsmanship, artistry, and prioritizes a good model for business and partnership. I’ve written about them numerous times, and you can see all of those posts here. What You’ll Win — 1 MAKE Solstice Bronzer in Warm #1 — 1 …
So, I haven’t done these in a while, but I thought it would be a good video to start the year with! I always enjoy making videos, so I’m not sure why I don’t do them more often. In any case, here are my favorites for January. If you don’t want to hear what I have to say about the products, here’s a straight-up list of faves: NYX Powder Blush in Taupe // Ellis Faas Concealer in S204* // MAKE Matte Eyeshadow in Khaki* // NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab // Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Medium // Sigma F86 Brush (Tapered Kabuki)** // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette // Diptyque Vetyverio A pretty straightforward list, yeah? It’s kinda boring, but also filled with holy grail products. Do share what you’ve been loving lately. I’d love to know and live vicariously through you! * PR Sample, ** PR Sample + affiliate link Follow me: Bloglovin’ • Twitter • Instagram • YouTube • Facebook
It’s the last day of January and I’m kind of really excited to say that I haven’t purchased any new makeup! In fact, I’ve been enjoying some of the spoils of my US trip on the last quarter of last year. I remembered that I wanted to use the MAKE Soft Focus Foundation a lot in January and February, so I reached for it when I put on makeup on this particular day.
