April 2017 Beauty & Fashion Favorites

Beauty
bareMinerals Original Foundation in Light Beige (get it here)
I don't know what it is, but I avoided powder foundations for a long time, especially bareMinerals. I don't know what my aversion to it was, but when the new formulation and 10 new colors came out, I got my perfect match (which happened to be one of the new colors), and now I love it. One thing I will say is that it is a bit time consuming to apply, because you need to buff it in, but this stuff doesn't move off my face the entire day. For reference, I am Light Beige 09 in the original foundation formula, which is for light skin with neutral undertones.

Hourglass Vanish Foundation Brush (get it here!)
This is the brush that I got to put on the bareMinerals foundation. I did try the bareMinerals brush that was made for the foundation, and really didn't like it. This one seemed to pack on the foundation h
ow I wanted, and you can also use it for liquid foundation if you want. Expensive, but worth it.

BECCA Backlight Filter Face Primer (get it here!)
I'm going to say that this has officially replaced my Hourglass primer, which is insane because I've been so committed to that for years. This gives me a more dewy glow on my face where the Hourglass primer is definitely more matte. If nothing else, I highly recommend this for summer.

NARS Pop Goes The Easel Blush in 'Peep Show' (get it here!)
Always a sucker for new NARS blushes. I was able to justify this one because it's matte. I think this is the very first matte NARS blush I've ever purchased. It's good to have variety.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in 'Stunner' (get it here!)
I got this as a deluxe sample and it is now my go-to travel highlighter! It's cool toned, not too shimmery, and perfect as an everyday highlight. 

Fashion
Lush Off the Shoulder Dress (get it here!)
This has been my favorite warm-weather dress this season. Unfortunately, it's sold out on Nordstrom right now, but keep your eye on it! It was super popular, so I imagine it will come back in some fashion.

Ralph Lauren Belted Hooded Soft Shell Jacket (get it here!)
I got this jacket on sale for less than $100, but even at full-price, it is a great lightweight, more formal jacket that is also meant as a rain jacket. I wear to work / mediation when I'm dressed up instead of throwing on my North Face windbreaker and it looks so much better.
