NEW FAVES

Hi y'all! I am beyond excited because today is the first day in San Antonio to feel like fall ALL DAY long! No 60 degree morning weather and 90 degrees in the afternoon. It has been a delicious 60ish degrees all day!!! I actually got to pull out my boots for the first time this season! Oh, San Antonio, I won't miss your weather when I'm gone. But enough weather speak...I wanted to share some of my new makeup and hair product finds I've been loving recently! 


Laura Mercier Foundation Primer- Hydrating: I have always heard great things about Laura Mercier products so I finally decided to give them a try, and they did not disappoint. I have been on the hunt for a new primer/foundation combination so when I saw that this was specially formulated to hydrate skin, I was sold. I put this on before my foundation or tinted moisturizer, and it makes the rest of my makeup application flawless and acts almost like a second moisturizer (which my skin can always use as much moisture as it can get)! 

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation: This foundation is absolutely my new favorite product! I have had so much trouble finding a foundation that works with my skin because it is so dry. Most foundations cling to my dry spots- no thank you, but this specially formulated for dry skin moisturizing foundation has been wonderful! I apply it with a damp beauty blender, and it looks seamless. I love that it offers full coverage with only a small amount of product, AND it doesn't rub off throughout the day! 

YSL Rouge Pur Couture #205 Matte Burgundy: My new fall go-to lip! The perfect matte, deep wine color! Buy it now- thank me later! 

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray: One of my best friend's introduced me to this product, and it really is a game changer. I was having so much trouble with my foundation gradually rubbing off throughout the day before I started using this. Now, once I finish my makeup, I spray this on a few minutes later, and it gives my makeup that matte look I want. There are so many different setting sprays out there, but this one absolutely lives up to its claims. It has kept me matte through sweat and rain so that is saying something! 

Sebastian Potion 9: This is a styling product that can be applied to wet hair or dry hair! I apply this to my damp hair before blow drying, and it leaves it so soft and adds extra volume! I've also applied it to my dry hair to give it extra texture. Ulta has a sale on the travel size, as well, so you can give it a try before buying the big one! 

KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray: I would describe this product as a mix between a dry shampoo and a texture builder! It absorbs oil for refreshing day-old hair, but it can also be used to give fresh hair more texture and volume! This is definitely one of my new favorite products that I've been using almost daily! For day-old curls, I spray it on and it gives them a little refresh for a beachy wave, or for straight hair, I have been spraying it on to add texture and hold! I originally bought the travel size to try it out and am obsessed! I can't wait to get the full size! 

Thanks for reading, y'all!
