Friday Favorites: My Beauty Picks Under $45

Today’s Friday Favorites are all about the beauty! I wanted to share with you some of my favorite beauty picks – all of these are tried and true, in my experience and under $45. Some of these products I have been using for years and others are somewhat new in my make-up rotation. But all these things are products that are in my make-up bag, most of which I use on a daily basis.

Check out my picks and let me know what YOUR favorite beauty products are – I love to try new things, especially items recommended by friends. Feel free to share your favorites!


Friday Favorites Beauty Products

1- This bronzer is one of my all time favorite things. I use it all the time and I can’t tell you how many times people tell me how tan I am when I wear it{ and I tell them, it’s pretty much all bronzer!} It also lasts forever – a little bit goes a long way!

2- My favorite lipstick {speed dial} & gloss  {floating lotus} combo – this shade is perfect for summer!

3- I have used this tinted moisturizer { with SPF 20!} since my engagement photos and I am obsessed. It has a great creamy texture, it leaves my skin feeling moisturized while evening out my skin tone. I also love the extra protection from the sun.

4- I recently splurged on this new mascara and it’s amazing. It makes your lashes crazy ridiculous! Seriously, it gives my lashes some fabulous extra length – I highly recommend!

5- A must have in my make-up rotation this summer is this anti-dark circle roller. Since I permanently have sunglasses on whenever I go outside, I can sometimes get a little sunglass-tan action going on – this roller evens out my skin tone around my eyes after some quality time in the sun.

6- To add a little extra bang to my lashes, on top of the fabulous mascara in pick #4, I love this eye lash curler. Everyone needs a good eyelash curler in their life, for reals.

7-  Another staple in my make-up bag is this eyeshadow {burnt sand shimmer} – it’s a great neutral with a little shimmer – makes a great transition from day to night. 

8- This moisturizing & brightening cream is something I put on every day. I have loved the Korres brand for a while now, but I love it even more since our honeymoon in Greece – anytime I use anything Korres, it reminds me of our awesome trip! 

9- Just picked up this glossy lip balm {in big apple red} and it’s absolutely perfect for summer. It has a great taste & smell to it and gives great color – perfect to throw in your beach bag! And for under $3 you can afford one in every color!


My Beauty Picks

1- Three of my favorite scents – {Nanette Lepore / Issey Miyake / Pink Sugar} – I keep these 3 in constant rotation, they are all so different and smell fabulous. I wore Issey on our wedding day, Pink Sugar smells like cottan candy {yum!} and Nanette is a classic favorite.

2- My favorite nail polish colors, which frequent my fingernails are {Fiji / Chinchilly } – I love a classic, powdery pink and I am a firm believe that a perfect grey is appropriate for every season.

3- The lipstick I wore on our wedding day {Raspberry Rush} holds a special place in my heart. Plus I love the color!

4- This firming body emulsion moisturizer is something I put on before applying make-up. I love the way it makes my skin feel.

5-  I have this hand and elbow cream next to my bed, I put it on my hands & arms every night before bed. Smells good too!

6- This self tanning cream is the absolute best. It’s infused with pure cocoa and smells like chocolate! It doesn’t leave streaks or anything like that – If you are looking for a good face self-tanner – this is it!

7- Another part of my nightly ritual is this Vitamin E sink-in moisture mask – I love leaving this on every night and waking up to my skin feeling super soft!

    I’m gonna try some of those items – for mature skin types, Garnier makes the anti-puff roller which I love!
