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.

2 Easy Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

It’s Matt’s favorite time of year…  Halloween!  We look forward to October each year because we get to really let our creativity show with our videos.  Last year, Matt was working on Timeless, so he didn’t get to be as involved as he likes.  This year, we’ve released two videos so far and they’re both easy to recreate and great for anyone looking for a last minute costume idea.  Chances are you have most of the makeup products used to get these looks.  As for the products you don’t have, they’re easily replaceable with something you can find as your local Sephora, Ulta or drugstore.

First up, we have a scarecrow.  This would be adorable for a family dressing up as the Wizard of Oz!

There is no special makeup products involved in this look, which makes it PERFECT for any last-minute folks out there.  Just grab a straw hat, any flannel shirt and straw, if you have easy access to it, and you’re good to go!  This is such a cute look that’s office and kid appropriate.

Watch the full tutorial of this makeup look to see just how easy it really is here:

On Thursday, I released my latest Halloween makeup tutorial: Easy Skull Makeup.  If you’re looking for a creepy, but not too scary, costume, then this is for you.  Skull/Skeleton makeup can be very intimidating.  I’ve done skull makeup in the past that was very intricate with face paints that took FOREVER to do.  They came out so cool, but not everyone has the time or patience to do that.  I wanted to create a skull look that would be super easy for anyone to recreate and take the intimidation out of it for you…  So, I came up with this look.

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Makeup Look 150 150 Angela Lanter

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Makeup Look

I’ve been playing in makeup since I was four years old.  With all of the makeup in my collection, you would think that I have a different makeup look for every day of the week, and I probably do.  Here’s the thing: when you get comfortable with a certain look or product, you tend to stick to it…  Even when you have a ton of makeup like I do, lol.  Every woman I know has their go-to everyday makeup look.  Some want to look more glam and others want to look more natural.

When I think of everyday makeup, I think of looking like a better version of yourself.  Fresh, clear skin with soft, rosy cheeks.  My focus is on my lashes and lips.  Today’s video is about my everyday natural makeup look.  Essentially, it’s my “No makeup, makeup look.”  I’m taking you step by step through this routine and showing you each product I use on an everyday basis.

Just a head’s up…  Multiple products that I use in this video are ON SALE!  Check out the makeup list below to see which items you should snag for a weekend deal!
