Recent Beauty Buys

  This weird (actual) Winter weather in Savannah has been a major disruption to my beauty routine (or lack thereof). I tend to quickly apply foundation, light bronzer and maybe blush if I'm feeling like I need it. However, I've had to invest in moisturizer and use it frequently to keep my skin from drying out. This Clinique product is far from being new to the market, but I'd heard such great things about it that I decided it would be my first purchase. I've actually really enjoyed it and usually apply it before bed and again before I leave the house in the morning. Tarte is always a favorite brand of mine, and their new BB Cream is lightweight and another layer I usually add before applying foundation. This Marc Jacobs shade is a limited edition red, and definitely my favorite lipstick right now. I'm also hoping it's bright color distracts people from my incredibly pale skin. While I'm not a fragrance person, I knew I had to try Elizabeth and James new scent. It's perfect for date nights or other special occasions, and has a light floral scent.
