I never really used to think of myself as knowing much about beauty. I mean, sure I knew how to do my makeup before a big event and how to take care of my skin, but that was about the extent of my knowledge in high school + college. But little by little, I started to find myself reading articles on how to create a smoky eye or the best way to shape your eyebrows and I wanted to learn more!
As a digital marketer, I’ve had the privilege of working with clients in the skincare + beauty industry, which has even further expanded my knowledge and interest in this area. So, I’ve decided to share my little bits of information with you, in hopes that you might be inspired to go do some beauty experimenting yourself!
Today, I’m listing my top April beauty picks! I love finding new beauty products and trying them out. If you have any suggestions on what I should try next, comment below!
1. Lavender EO is an absolute staple in my beauty routine. Lavendar naturally heals dry or chapped skin + lips! I mix a few drops of this stuff in with my regular daily moisturizer to give my face an extra boost of moisture.
2. IMAGE Skincare Prevention+ SPF 30 is my moisturizer + sunscreen of choice this month. I love how smooth + easy it is to apply and how quickly it’s absorbed into my skin. As an added benefit, this stuff smells amazing!!! Trust me – you won’t even know you are wearing sunscreen. (P.S. If you haven’t checked out IMAGE Skincare’s product line, you are missing out. They are the next big thing in skincare + beauty… and I don’t say that lightly.)
3. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge For Lips + Cheeks is a fairly new find. I used to swear against all creme blushes, because of my oily skin, but I have been embracing my natural glow lately and this is the perfect compliment to a light makeup day. Dab a little of this on your cheeks for a quick boost in color and don’t forget to touch up your lips while you’re at it! Small enough to fit in a purse and it comes in every color for all skin types.
4. EOS Lip Balm … I could go on and on about this stuff. I started using this before it was literally EVERYWHERE, and I still love it. All of the flavor smell great, and whatever they use to make this, keeps my lips moisturized all day. The only thing that bothers me about this lip balm though, is the awkward shape for carrying in a small purse or putting in your pocket… It’s super cute and original… but impractical for a girl who likes to carry very little. Still a GREAT product though.
