Beauty Wish List


With spring being on the way and our Florida vacation approaching, I've got the itch to add a few new products to my makeup drawer.  Which is overflowing and really doesn't need any more stuff crammed in it but that's besides the point.  I like to switch up my makeup with the seasons and the transition from winter to spring is probably my favorite.  Bring on the fresh faced makeup - and warmer weather, of course! 

A few things I've got my eye on...

This Bare Minerals eyeshadow palette is filled with everyday neutrals, making it perfect for spring break and summer wedding traveling.

I've been using Bare Minerals mineral veil for quite a while but I think it's making my winter skin look dull.  I want to give Laura Mercier's secret brightening powder a try instead.

How cute is this bottle of Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner?  I love that it's alcohol free so it won't dry out our skin and it'll look pretty on the bathroom counter.  (This is my current favorite toner)

You know I love my Bare Minerals original foundation but I'm looking for something a little lighter come the warmer months.  I've heard nothing but good things about Laura Mercier's tinted foundation!

Secret: I'm terrified of eyelash curlers.  I'm so afraid my eyelashes are going to come ripping out or I'll stab myself in the eye... but I think it's time to suck it up and try out this cult favorite Shu Uemura curler.  

I typically use bronzer to do a bit of contouring but after reading this post on Emily Maynard's wedding makeup, I want to give highlighting and contouring a real try with MAC's Select Cover Up.

I received a sample of Kate Somerville's Quench Hydrating Serum back in December and loved it.  I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since so it needs to be mine!

And of course, a new season wouldn't be complete without (a few) new lip products and nail polishes.  I love Bobbi Brown's lipgloss selection and Essie always has such fun colors. 

Have you tried any of these products or have any recommendations for me?  24 days until spring!  We can do it!

  9. I use Laura Mercier's radiance primer and I love it. I have heard a lot of good things about her tinted moisturizer too. I'll have to check out that brightening powder and compare it to my NARS brightening powder. I'm with you on the eyelash curler thing, I don't use one because I'm afraid! Love that eyeshadow palette and those polishes too. :-)

  12. I have never used a toner before, as I have super dry, sensitive skin. However, I have heard great things about witch hazel and its healing properties, so this may be one that I can use. And loving the link to Emily Maynards makeup artist how to's - she did a great job on the wedding day makeup, so I will definitely be taking a closer look at that for some tips! I would love to learn how to contour a bit better!!!

  19. I've been really wanting some spring nail polishes too! I just switched toners because I needed something alcohol-free. I just finished up that Mario Badescu toner-- is yours alcohol-free? Mine definitely wasn't, but when I checked online its not listed in the ingredient list, so maybe they switched the formula.

  20. I need to pull out my eye lash curler...
    I had a bride one time that had NO IDEA how to use it... I don't think I have ever laughed so hard at a Bride in my life when her bridesmaids MADE her use it.. thank God she didn't pull out her lashes on her wedding day

  23. Yay for spring nail colors! I've tried that Thayer's witch hazel toner and really liked it. It smells really nice and is gentle. I would still be using it if it wasn't for my crazy prego skin! I also want to try a new foundation for spring/summer. Let us know what you think of the Laura Mercier!

  24. Bobbi Brown lip glosses are some of my faves! Amazing colors and texture! I love using Witch Hazel as a toner - it gets everything off and is so gentle! I need to get the one you posted because the rose petal must smell so nice!

  25. Definitely needing that Laura Mercier brightening power! Such great wish list options -- I love trying new makeup but so often I stick to the products I've been using for years!
