Hair and Beauty Bag

Happy Monday! I hope y'all had a great weekend! One of my favorite parts of the weekend was going to see my stylis, Kahli at Renew to get my hair cut, colored, and styled. I get my hair colored every eight weeks because I've had some gray hair since I was 18. My hair is naturally pretty dark but she does the best job lightening it up for me. She does a shadowed root so that my regrowth looks more natural and she highlights using balayage. I love how my color turned out this time! My cut is an angled bob and she curled it with a 1.25 inch curling iron. I wish she could style my hair for me every day!

Today, I also wanted to share what's currently inside of my beauty bag. I love trying new products and sharing what I love with y'all. I like to keep my makeup pretty natural and my focus is almost always my eyes. I love a good smokey eye! Let me know if you have any questions or want more information about any of my beauty favorites!

1. Clear Mascara | I actually don't use this product as a mascara. I use it for setting my brows and it works so good! It's also only about $4.

2. Tinted Balm | I love adding some color to my lips but I also need moisture, especially during the winter. This subtle pink tinted lip balm is perfect!

3. Powder Foundation | I discovered this product in an Influenster sample box and I am hooked! I love the lightweight coverage!

4. Skincare | I won a gift card to Tula from a giveaway and now their eye cream is a must have item for me, especially since I am into my thirties now.

5. Blush and Bronzer | I love this Urban Decay blush and bronzer palette. It adds the perfect touch of color to brighten your face!

6. Eyeshadow | I've been using this eyeshadow palette for a couple years and I couldn't use any other one! My eyeshadow stays in place all day long and it create the perfect smokey eye!

7. Concealer | I tried this concealer since I already loved the foundation in this line and I love it! It perfectly conceals and blends easily.

8. Moisturizer | I have used this moisturizer since I was in high school. I bought it back then because it wasn't expensive but I continue to buy it now because it works! I have fairly dry skin and this moisturizer does a great job keeping my face hydrated.

9. Makeup Remover | I have tried so many different types of makeup remover and these wipes are my absolute favorite! They are super inexpensive and easily removed all of my makeup, including my mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow.

10. Rose Hip Oil | I started using this oil over the summer after a friend recommended it for wrinkles. The oil is supposed to naturally increase your collagen production to decrease the appearance of fine lines. It has improved my wrinkles and my face also isn't as dry as it used it to be. It's been a great addition to my skincare regimen!

11. Eyeliner | This is another product that I discovered via Influenster and it's the eyeliner that I am currently using. I love how smoothly it goes on and it lasts all day long!

12. Mascara | This is my favorite mascara that I have tried in a long time! It doesn't clump which is so important to me! The price is a little more than I typically spend on mascara but if you love long, full lashes then it's definitely worth every penny.
