I’m officially back to blogging and for my first post back, I thought I’d share the products I’ve been loving this month! These are products that I’ve discovered recently and I have been using them every day when I get ready. In the next week, I’ll be putting up a yearly favorites post that will include all the products I was addicted to in 2015, but for now I’ll share my newest loves!

  1. Morphe 35K Palette: I’ve been a Morphe fan for some time now, but this eyeshadow palette may just be my favorite palette of all time (yep, I said it!) I reach for this every day because it includes a perfect mix of warm, cool and neutral shades. You can create any look you want with this palette, and it’s so cheap for the amazing quality! $23
  2. Real Techniques Beauty Sponge: I’ve been ride or die for the Original Beauty Blender forever, but this little guy stole the show! It comes out to a quarter of the price (they come in sets of 2) and it works just as well, if not better. The sponge itself is dense but still soft, and the shape is perfect for getting into the under-eye area to blend out concealer! $10.99
  3. Glossier Boy Brow: In case you didn’t know, I’m lazy. Even when it comes to makeup. I love having my brows on fleek but most mornings, filling them in just seems like too much work. It also doesn’t help that I sleep until the last minute and don’t have much time to get ready! Enter the Boy Brow! This little tube has a tiny brush for easy application and brushes on fibers along with pigment to make your brows look instantly fuller! $16
  4. Becca Undereye Brightener: With finals and Christmas prep the last few weeks, ya girl hasn’t gotten much sleep. My eye bags have matching wallets. This Brightener goes right under my concealer to cancel out all the darkness under my eyes. $29
  5. Artis Oval 7 Brush: I was very skeptical about this one (my friend asked if I was putting on my foundation with a spoon when she saw me using it) but I’m so glad I invested in it! This brush is made specifically for applying makeup to yourself, and not only does it make application easy, the dense bristles make the tiniest amount of product go a long way! I use half as much foundation to get the same amount of coverage! $55
  6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Starlight Illuminator: Y’all. This highlighter is everything. I use this every single day, even if I’m not wearing makeup. I would bathe myself in it if I could. It’s the perfect shade for my super fair skin, and the formula is super buttery and pigmented. You need it in your life. $28
  7. MAC Soar Lip Pencil: This lip liner was made famous by Kylie Jenner, and I now understand why. The color is very flattering and makes my lips look even fuller than they already are. I like to fill in my entire lips with it then top it with a clear or mauve gloss. $16.50
  8. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration: Full disclosure: I only bought this because Kylie used it in her nighttime skincare routine, but I’m so glad I did! I like to apply this before bed with a dampened beauty sponge. The next morning, my skin always looks hydrated and refreshed! $26.50
  9. Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara: I love all things Charlotte Tilbury, so I gave this mascara a go. I like to use this on minimal makeup days when I don’t want huge lashes. It never clumps or smudges on me, and it leaves me with naturally full lashes. I’m very picky about mascara, but this one passes the test! $29
