Hair and Beauty Bag

hair, beauty, hair style, style on a budget

Happy Monday! Like I mentioned in this post, I go  see my stylist, Kahli at Renew to get my hair cut, colored, and styled every eight weeks. I have to get my hair colored on that eight week schedule because I've had some gray hair since I was 18. Not fun. My hair is naturally pretty dark and she does the best job lightening it up for me to get the look I want. She does a shadowed root so that my regrowth looks more natural and she highlights using balayage. I love how my color turned out! My cut is an angled bob (that she just trimmed up this time) and she curled it with a 1.25 inch curling iron. I wish she could come to my house and 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. My skin has been so dry lately so I've been focusing on taking care of my skin and keeping it moisturized.  Let me know if you have any questions or want more information about any of my beauty favorites!

1. 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 pretty dry skin and this moisturizer does a great job keeping my face hydrated. I've tried more expensive brands and keep coming back to this one!

2. 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.

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

4. Powder Highlighter | I love this highlighter and the perfect glow it gives my skin! I've been using this instead of blush and it lasts all day.

5. Lipstick | I don't buy much "expensive" lipstick. I usually just pick up cheap colors at the drug store but I love this lip color and the shade Sushi Kiss is so pretty!

6. 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.

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. Such great coverage!

8. Face Oil | Like I mentioned above, I am struggling with super dry skin right now! I started using this face oil about two weeks ago and I am loving the results. My skin has been way less dry and it has a natural glow! I love it!



  1. I love this post! I like seeing what people carry in their makeup bags!
