Love me some good beauty finds. I’ve started using so many new products this past month so I’m excited to share them with you. From makeup to hair products I’m so in love with these new beauty favorites!
SHOP MY BEAUTY FAVORITES:
THE KNOCKOUT WAND BY HEAD KANDY (use code TAMMY15)
I have been using my T3 micro wand for well over a year and I love it but it’s an investment. Head Kandy recently sent me some new tools to try and honestly I AM SOLD! As soon as I started curling with their wand I was getting questions on how I get my beach waves. The knockout wand is the answer.
This wand heats up to 430 degrees but the shape and barrel size allows for me to get those long loose waves and they hold for days. I haven’t gone back to my T3 since using the Knockout Wand.
Best part is this wand is so affordable. Only $99 and you get the wand with 2 barrels. There’s also an additional Tag Team set you can buy with additional wands and if you want the Knockout wand plus Tag Team wands you can get them all as a set here. Use code TAMMY15 for an additional discount. For the quality wand you are getting you cannot beat the price! Definitely one of my new beauty favorites! You can also go the highlights tab on my IG feed and see a full hair tutorial of me using the Knockout Wand.
My ride or die foundation has always been Estee Lauder Double Wear, but the beauty junkie in me felt the urge to try something different. I almost always wear full coverage foundation and I love the wear on the NARS. It feels very similar to the Estee Lauder. Gives great coverage, lasts all day without budging but does not feel heavy at all.
I used this foundation years ago. While I love it I did struggle to find the exact shade for my skin. I use self tanner pretty often with shooting so I have a hard time knowing which color foundation to use. So I started using the NARS mentioned above in my regular shade and then add in 2 dabs of the Tan color in the IT Cosmetics and I mix them. Gives me the perfect shade! I use this method in the summer also and it keeps me from having to buy a darker foundation that I’ll never get through.
TULA COMPLEXION BOOST DUO (use code HOUSEOFLEO for 20% off)
You all know how Tula is my go to skincare. I featured a few stories of my favs last month but later found out some of the items went out of stock. This duo is perfect because you get 2 key products for a bargain price. The Illuminating Serum is my jam. I swear it has helped lighten up acne scars and leaves my skin so radiant and my go to night cream (can be used during the day) is also included. These aren’t full sizes but they are very generously sized. Plus use code HOUSEOFLEO to save 20% on all your Tula purchases. Tula products will always rank as some of my beauty favorites.
STRAIGHTENING BRUSH 2.0 BY HEAD KANDY (use code TAMMY15)
Ok this is another tool from Head Kandy. Works like a straightner to smooth your hair but it leaves the best shine and silkiness. I find it less harmful than a straightner because your hair isn’t being pressed between plates but you still get that straight, smooth look. Works like a charm on Summer’s wavy hair. Don’t forget to use code TAMMY15 for an additional savings.
Bargain lippie alert. While I love a bold lip lately I’ve been into nudes and softer tones. This lipstick is under $6, the perfect nude and adds such a soft and natural shine to you lip!
I am a big dry shampoo user. I spend a small fortune getting my hair colored so I try to get as many days in before washing, but I workout a ton so I have to use dry shampoo in between washes. Loving this one lately. No white residue and gives my hair such nice volume.
You can buy the best foundation in the world but if you aren’t using a good foundation brush to apply it’s a total waste in my opinion. IT Cosmetics makes some of my favorite foundation brushes. They give that airbrushed effect and they last forever.
LAURA MERICER CAVIAR CHROME VEIL LIQUID EYE COLOR (color Gilded Fresco)
These next 2 products are literally all I’ve been wearing on my eyes since my Bluemercury complexion appointment. You can read all about that in this post. While I LOVE powder eyeshadows I am so into liquid shadows lately. However, many times I find liquid shadows to crease. Not the case with this one. I apply on my lid and in my crease and it gives the most gorgeous color to my eye. Natural and soft but still dramatic to wear at night. Just go heavier with your eyeliner for a night time look. I’m obsessed. Hands down one of my new beauty favorites.
TRISH MCEVOY EYE BASE ESSENTIALS (color BARE)
But before you apply the Laura Mercier mentioned above start with this product. I put on my finger and apply all over my eye lid up to my brow line. You can use this alone and it looks so soft and pretty. Add in some liner and you are good to go. You can also use this as your primer under your cream shadows or you can use it with liquid shadows. Love, love, love this product!
So that’s it! All my beauty favorites for the past month! Can’t wait to start getting into some bold pink and coral lips for spring but right now I’m loving all these soft neutrals. I’m thinking next month maybe I’ll do a hair tutorial on how I get my beach waves for those of you not on IG. It’s on my short list!
See you back here Sunday for March’s Amazon Haul!
