My Top 5 Beauty Picks for March

I can’t believe it’s already April. 2017 is flying by and it’s definitely springtime in San Diego. Here are my top 5 beauty products from the month of March.

“Full Dry Volume Blast” by Living Proof. I love the brand Living Proof and use many of their products already. This is a newer product, and it lives up to Living Proof’s high standards. “Full Dry Volume Blast” is a volumizing and texturizing spray used on dry hair. It’s infused with molecules that expand once released from the can, giving you lots of volume wherever you spray it. I get Brazilian blowouts which I can’t live without, but it does make my hair flat. This spray gives me the best of both worlds-straight hydrated hair with volume! The spray won Allure’s “Best of Beauty” award in 2016 when it was released. Paraben and sulfate free. You can buy it at Nordstrom and get free shipping/returns here: Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast, Size. $15 USD for 3oz, or $29 USD for 7.5oz.

“Hydrating Foundation Primer” by Laura Mercier. I’ve used Laura Mercier products for years and love how they don’t bother my sensitive skin. This hydrating primer is my go-to as I have drier skin that needs an extra layer of hydration before foundation. It contains vitamins A, C, and E, in addition to hyaluronic acid (my fave) and glycerin for added moisture. It’s important to always wear a primer under foundation as it extends the wear of your makeup and smoothes the appearance of the skin, filling in pores and lines. Try it at Nordstrom with free shipping/returns here: Laura Mercier ‘Hydrating’ Foundation Primer – No Color. $38 USD for 1.7oz.

“Kylighters” in ” “Cotton Candy Cream” and “French Vanilla” by Kylie Cosmetics. I looove me a good highlighter and so far Kylie Jenner’s cosmetic line does not disappoint. I decided to try out her new highlighters and they are BEAUTIFUL. Simple packaging with a lot of glow inside. “Cotton Candy Cream” has more of a light pink hue compared to “French Vanilla” which is a cool, lighter cream. Both are extremely pigmented and last all day. These highlighters are amazing and you can only get them on kyliecosmetics.com. $22 USD.

 

 

“Ink Liner” in “Trooper”by Kat Von D. This is a product I can’t live without! I’ve tried so many eyeliners and this one is my favorite. It’s waterproof, smudge-proof, and lasts all day. It’s a felt tip liner, so you can get sharp precise lines. In my opinion, the felt tip makes it easier to apply compared to the alternative brush tip on Kat Von D’s “Tattoo liner.”Both formulas are amazing, they just have different applicators. I’ve gotten a lot of my nursing coworkers hooked on it as well because it lasts a 12 hour shift without going anywhere! So nice not to have raccoon eyes in the morning giving report! Buy it at Sephora here. $20 USD.

“Night-a-mins” Night Cream by Origins. My all-time favorite night cream! This moisturizer smells fresh and is so hydrating. Infused with vitamins C and E, this night cream helps repair and replenish the skin overnight. It’s great for all skin types and is paraben and sulfate free. It also helps retexturize the skin, improving the skin’s smoothness over time. I’ve gotten so many friends to buy it and so far, everyone loves it! Give it a try at Nordstrom with free shipping/returns if you don’t love it, here: Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins(TM) Mineral-Enriched Oil-Free Renewal Cream. $43 USD for 1.7 oz.
