Holiday Beauty

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10

After I did a blog post on my make-up routine, I was asked to do a skin care routine. Many of you know that I have never been happy with my skin but it has definitely come a long way in the past 12 mos. 

That being said, I wanted to share a few of my skincare must-haves + Holiday Beauty cravings.

1/2 I use my Clarisonic each night & some mornings. When it starts to dry out my skin, I switch to my cashmere brush head which doesn't dry it out. I usually pair it with this Clarins face wash - a product I have really fallen in love with.
3/9 The 2 Fragrences I am coveting are by Tory Burch & Viktor & Rolf. Both smell so clean & fresh.
4 Kiehl's Midnight Recovery System... Though I am oily, I swear by oil products to give my skin life when it starts getting cold out.
5/8 This Volupsa Candle + Diffuser called 'Visions of Sugar Plums' are in my cart on Nordstrom currently. I am trying to wait until next week to order them because we are moving & I don't want extra 'stuff' to pack but I definitely want to have these burning in our new home. And it doesn't hurt that they are packaged beautifully. ;)
6/7/10 I love YSL's products.. The lipstick above is the only YSL formula that is pigmented & moisturizing for me - and I really love the way it feels. (& then a matching nail color!) Of course, with the Holiday's approaching, our schedules are getting busier so it is essential to have a good under eye brightener to keep you looking fresh & alive.
