11 Favorite Makeup Products On Sale

Yesterday I ran into Nordstrom to make a quick return and realized it was triple points weekend.  If you’re a Nordstrom Card holder like I am, then these weekends are super exciting, so just a head’s up if you didn’t already know!

While browsing the website last night, I saw that some of my very favorite beauty products and even a few of my holy grail products are on sale.  Naturally, I had to share the wealth with y’all.

All of the products mentioned below are currently on sale!

Please excuse the old selfie, but it shows so many of the products mentioned below!

Beauty Products On Sale

Face:

Laura Mercier Primer:  I use this hydrating primer on the daily.  It helps prep your skin and keep your foundation in place all.day.long.

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder:  This is one product my under eyes can’t live without.  Watch this tutorial on how I cover my dark circles and see how this product is the perfect finishing touch to brighten and lighten your eye area.

MAC Studio Fix Foundation:  When looking for a medium to full coverage foundation, this is what I grab.  It applies beautifully and stays in place all day.  (wearing in the above photo!)

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue:  This tinted gel is perfect for a girl looking for a fresh face without the heavy coverage.  I’ve turned on so many of my girlfriends to this product!

Bobbi Brown Corrector:  Another must-have in my dark circle routine.  I use this in peach and it cancels out the nasty purple circles in a flash.

Eyes:

Benefit ka-BROW:  This cream-gel is my brow go-to. (wearing in the above photo!)

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette:  This palette is EVERYTHING.  I reach for this palette on the daily.  I get asked frequently which eyeshadow I’m wearing and my answer is always, UD Naked Heat.  See a tutorial on how I use this palette here.  The Naked palettes rarely go on sale, so get it while it’s hot!  (wearing in the above photo!)

Lips:

MAC Lipstick:  These lipsticks will forever be a holy grail product for me.  Lately, I have been wearing the shade “Yash” which is a perfect creamy nude.  It never fails, I get asked what color I’m wearing every time I wear this lipstick.  I’m wearing it in this get ready with me video.  (wearing in the above photo!)

Tools:

Beautyblender: Watch this video I made about all the ways this magic little sponge will transform your makeup application.  The solid soap is my favorite product to not only cleanse my beautyblenders, but also all of my makeup brushes.

MAC Makeup Brushes:  So many awesome brushes are on sale this weekend!  Watch this video to see how I clean my makeup brushes.


Today feels like the first day of summer vacation!  Matt wrapped season 2 of Timeless this morning at 7:30 am and I couldn’t be more excited.  The last three months postpartum have been a challenge with his intense schedule, so now we get to have some of that much needed family time.  Who am I kidding?  You know we’ll be diving head first into new projects right away between Hello Baby, YouTube tutorials and everything Matt has on his plate as well, lol!

Please leave a comment below and give me some YouTube video suggestions that you’d like to see on my channel.

As a new mom, I’m finding that my time is very valuable.  There’s always something to do with a newborn baby in the picture…  Between feedings, laundry and diapers, there’s little time left for me.  But that’s all part of it, and I’m loving every minute of this stage of our new life as parents.

As you probably already know, skincare has always been very important to me, but now I have much less time to dedicate to my regimen.  Now I need products that take care of multiple skin needs in one-step to keep my life simpler but my skin still looking good.

For daytime, I prefer a lightweight moisturizer to keep my skin looking and feeling fresh.  Olay Whip: Total Effects is a lightweight moisturizer that packs a powerful hydration punch.  It instantly absorbs into my skin, allowing me to immediately apply makeup and leaving behind a dewy finish.  Because Olay Whip: Total Effects preps my skin, I actually feel comfortable skipping my primer when I’m running short on time.  The Total Effects Whip leaves my skin feeling softer and the added hydration not only improves my complexion but helps to keep it glowing.

What are some of your favorite time saving hacks for skincare and makeup?  Leave a comment below and share them with me.  This new mommy could use the suggestions on how to look good in less time!

When it comes to Christmas shopping, I like to plan ahead.  I started my gift list that I’m going to buy weeks ago!  Does that make me a crazy Christmas lady?  Probably.  I’m totally cool with that though, lol!

A lot of us should keep a budget in perspective when it comes to holiday shopping.  I wanted to share some of my best tips for maintaining your sanity (and your budget) during Christmas:

    • Make a list of people you plan to buy for, then decide how much you want to spend on each person.  Planning out holiday spending in advance will keep the stress (and marital disagreements) down to a minimum.
    • Be realistic about your shopping list.  You don’t need to buy a gift for everyone you know.  Audit your list- remove anyone you don’t absolutely have to buy for.
    • Save Christmas money throughout the year.  A Christmas savings account helps to equip you financially for the hefty spending you may be planning to do come December.
    • Choose gifts wisely.  You can find affordable gifts that the people in your life will love.  For instance, the Burt’s Bees Essential Kit holiday gift set is the perfect way to give the gift of natural beauty products to a beauty lover in your life.  It makes a great last minute stocking stuffer for under $10.  This gift set comes with five trial-sized products so you’re able to sample different, new beauty products.  I have been a fan of the Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint for years!  It keeps my lips moisturized and conditioned while the peppermint leaves behind a cool, tingly feeling.  I also love the Burt’s Bees Body Lotion with Milk & Honey…  It’s non-greasy and smells so yummy, plus the scent is 100% natural.  You can purchase the Burt’s Bees set exclusively at your local Walmart and Walmart.com along with so many other affordable gifts this Christmas.  Walmart has everything you need for to prepare for the holidays this season!
    •  Keep the real reason for Christmas in mind.  It’s so easy to allow the stress of Christmas shopping, and all that comes with it, to steal our holiday joy.  The best part of the holidays is being with those you love, so don’t allow the pressure to turn you into the grinch.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. The opinions and text are all mine.
