Facing the Day in my Favorite Beauty Finds

This was The Summer of Sephora for me. For some reason, I started really getting into beauty products and made one of my first visits to Sephora and Ulta.  I quickly realized that these were places I could get very carried away.  But, what fun.  Now that I've been using these new products for a few months, I thought it would be fun to share how I’ve been facing the day lately. I have them all linked at the end, too.

Here are a few faves:

Start with Merit Great Skin Beauty Serum here.

Then, Supergoop's Glow Screen SPF 40 with a little shimmer for glowing skin.

Then, most recently, I've been using Merit's Complexion Sticks.  They feel great on, are easy to apply and stay put all day without feeling like a mask. True game changers. I do mix in a little liquid foundation when I brush and blend and the outcome is stay-put make-up that looks very natural, but, ya know, better. And, the best...they are foudation and concealer so I have a color I use mainly as under-eye concealer that is awesome.  They are very versatile.

Next up, Bronze Balm Sheer Sculpting Bronzer Stick by Merit. 

Not to be outdone by the Merit Highlighting Balm which I use on top of my cheekbones for a little light.

Now, here is the product that makes all the difference in the world.  I look "before" and "after" with the swipe of this on both cheeks. It's the Merit Flush Balm and it is the moment you come to life.

A fave that I mix into my foundation is the Iconic Sheer Bronze.  It's so pretty and gives my foundation and little glow.

The most recent product I tried and now use daily is Merit's new Solo Shadows.  I got the three neutral shades and love them.  I also got the brush for the eyeshadow and love it.

Below, I've linked them all in a chart.  There are a few other favorites, but these have all earned a permanent spot on the roster.
