Every Day Beauty Favorites: Splurge & Save

 Updated Every Day Beauty Favorites!

First and foremost... sorry I've been super MIA on here! I feel like unless I have things to share that require a lot of detail like this that it's more convenient for you guys for me to just post on Instagram and in the LTK app! However, I've recently gotten a lot of requests to share my updated every day beauty routine so I figured it was probably time. While I try to always save on the products I post, sometimes I just have to splurge... especially when it comes to beauty products that are SO worth it. My every day hair and makeup favorites are about half splurge, half save. I thought about posting a "save" alternative to all of my "splurge" products but I want to share the products that I actually use on a daily basis so I didn't think that made much sense. So with all of that being said... here we go! 


1. Loreal Infallable Pro-Matte Foundation: SAVE

So I used to use the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation (which is like 4x the price) but one day, I was reading reviews from some of my favorite makeup bloggers and I saw that a lot of them suggested this! I immediately went to the store to try it and have used it every day since! It feels super lightweight but gives you a ton of coverage, which is what I like. If you don't like heavy coverage, this probably isn't for you. It stays on SO WELL and it's so worth trying if you're using an expensive foundation! The exact color that I use is "102 Shell Beige."

2. Kristen Ess Purple Shampoo- SAVE

Yall this stuff has CHANGED the tone of my hair. So despite what Maddie (my hair dresser) does to tone my hair, after about 3ish weeks it starts to turn golden blonde because of my natural hair color. However, all I have to do is use this stuff one time and it turns it right back to the ashy blonde shade that I leave the salon with! It's SUCH a good purple shampoo and way better than any of the super expensive stuff I have tried. I use it about every 4-5 days! 

3. Loreal Infallable Pro-Matte Powder- SAVE

This is the best powder if you like an overall matte look like I do! I wear it over top of the Loreal foundation I just talked about and love it just as much. I rarely have to do touch up's at all. The exact color that I use is "300 Nude Beige." 

4. Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow- SPLURGE

I just think these are the prettiest eye shadow palettes! Despite my love of color, I keep it super neutral when it comes to eyeshadow. The colors that I wear every day in the palette are "Barely Baked, Angel Fire, Reputation, and Distilled." I love all of them but those are the 4 I use on a regular basis! 

5. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer- SPLURGE

I don't know what else to say other than, WORTH EVERY PENNY. I have tried all kinds of concealers and I just always go back to this one. It's so good for hiding all kinds of blemishes and dark under eyes! The exact shade I use is "light sand."

6. Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara- SPLURGE

Yes, I did used to have lash extensions and like once a month you'll catch me in fake lashes but 99% of the time, this is all I'm wearing! I'm very blessed with good natural lashes but I seriously swear by this mascara. I have tried SO many different ones and this is my favorite I've ever used! SO worth the money. 

7. Virtue Split End Serum- SPLURGE

One of my best friends told me about this stuff a few years ago because it seriously changed the texture of her hair! Then my hair dresser started carrying it last year so I started using it on a regular basis too! It's AMAZING. I have naturally super thin hair that breaks SO easily... which is why I have started keeping it cut short. As bad as I hate to say it, I'm just not made for long hair 😭 My front pieces break off worse than the rest and this stuff has made SUCH a difference. I only use a dime size each time so it lasts forever. I also only use it about once or twice a week! 

8. Too Faced Contour Palette- SPLURGE 

 This is truly the only contour palette I've ever really loved with my skin tone! Even when I have a spray tan and no matter how much I blend, some of them are just too harsh and dark on my skin. However, I absolutely love this one and have been using it for about 5 years now! 

9. Urban Decay Highlighter- SPLURGE

 WORTH EVERY PENNY! It's so pretty and just gives you the best highlight. I only use it under my eyes and above my cupid's bow! It shows up SO well in pictures too. 

10. Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner- SAVE 

I've been using this eyeliner since MIDDLE SCHOOL and have never once switched over to anything else! I don't wear any liner on the top, only the bottom. I have NO issues with this smearing, ever. It's truly the best and so affordable!
