2014 best of beauty


charcoal mask // moisturizer
lip stick // shaving cream
brow gel // brow wiz

2014 was the year of the brow and revamping my skincare routine. I found some amazing products this year and am so excited to share them with you! 

I'm officially in my late twenties and it's no longer acceptable, or responsible, to go to bed with a face full of makeup or do nothing to protect my skin from the environment. I've been experimenting with a number of products this year to preserve and protect my skin, two of my favorites are from Origins. 

Your skin will never feel more clean after using the Origins charcoal mask. It rids the skin of environmental toxins and brightens your skin. Another skin woe this year has been serious dry skin. The Chicago winter has officially sucked all of the moisture from my skin. The Origins night cream is AMAZING, and it has a very calming scent, perfect for bedtime. 

Bold brows are all the rage this year and this is one trend that has serious staying power. Two holy grail worthy products that I discovered this year were the Anastasia Beverly hills brow gel and brow pencil. If you don't own them already, go to Sephora NOW.

Last but not least, two drug store products that will have permanent spots in my bathroom are the L'oreal balm lipstick and EOS shaving cream. 

I'd love to hear your favorite beauty finds of 2014 and any products that I need to try this year!
