My journey in fashion began over 25 years ago as a Portland-based buyer for Nordstrom. After a decade of doing this work and developing a solid grasp of market demands, I learned that you need the key pieces that really work well together and that you can wear over and over again. Read more….
The 20 best-selling beauty products everyone loves!
… and a beauty hack that makes packing so much easier
For many of us, beauty products are things we LOVE to try. Sometimes walking into a store like Sephora can be a little overwhelming … but still so much fun! Recently, my daughter Em and I got sidetracked while clothes shopping and ended up in Sephora for over an hour. Since she’s up on the latest Tik Tok beauty videos, she had a long list of things to try, like Fenty Beauty lipgloss,this foundation and anything by Patrick TA. And, since I love fragrances, I spent a good deal of time trying to decide which rollerball(s) to come home with since they’re perfect for traveling and a great way to try out a new scent!
Today’s post is about the 20 beauty products everyone loves. This includes everything from Vitamin C serum to special candles to the best foundation ever. And, of course, the fragrances that are flying off shelves (I’ve tried them all)! Plus, I also discovered a beauty hack that makes packing so much easier … I can’t wait to share it with you!
Sephora has a Beauty Insider Program that both Em and I enjoy. When you sign up, you get exclusive discounts, a special birthday gift and even free standard shipping. It’s very worth it if you love shopping for beauty products like we do!
But First … the beauty hack that makes packing so much easier!
A few weeks ago, in the middle of the night (when all my good ideas happen), I dreamed about having a fully stocked cosmetic bag that I could just grab and stuff into my suitcase. It would have everything I use daily, including skin care products and fragrance favorites! So, I started buying doubles of those items I can’t live without … things like my favorite tweezers,sunscreen,Bobbi Brown eyeshadow sticks,Charlotte Tilbury everything, etc. I highly recommend trying this if you’re traveling regularly. While it’s an investment, it makes packing so much easier 🙂
Kidman's Kiss is the prettiest shade of coral-pink! You’ll love it as en everyday color. I make sure to have extras in my travel bag, handbag and in my makeup drawer. This is a great color for so many women, give it a try!
I've never been a big body lotion person, but recently I started using this one by Kiehl's -- and wow is it good. Now I have it in my travel bag and on bathroom counter, and I have a back-up supply as well! It leaves your skin glistening, and the scent is barely there making it the perfect daily fragrance.
This highly-rated foundation is the best. I've tried branching out, but always go back to this one. It's a nice medium coverage, looks natural, and you can apply it lighter or heavier, depending on where you're going. I recommend using a primer before applying.
These are the best hair ties ever! They don't get tangled in your hair, they're elegant, and the colors work with anything you wear. I buy these for gifts, and I carry one everywhere. More elevated than an elastic hair band, they're perfect for going out.
