Mid - Week Must

Now that we’re celebrating all things cold, lets talk dry skin, because HONEY WE’RE ALL ABOUT TO GET IT. If you’re anything like us you get dry skin in the fall and winter months because there is less moisture in the air. This can cause quite the problem when applying any kind of makeup products to the face. While makeup is a great tool to hide our imperfections and bring out features that we like about ourselves, its not a miracle worker and can’t fix texture. We always say makeup is only as good as the skin underneath, so its best to take care of it! We’re no stranger to writing about skincare, but what about the tools? Lets talk your new Must, the Clarisonic!

Coming in a wide variety of models and colors, you can’t go wrong with any of them. The Clarisonic is the perfect way to exfoliate dead skin and push your cleanser deep into your pores causing the deepest clean you’ll ever get! The benefits are endless, anti-aging, reduce acne, removes all the left over makeup your makeup wipe didn’t get, smaller pores, and the list goes on! We all have one and we think its time you pick up yours! ;)

Mid - Week Must

We’re getting into Fall/Winter months which means we’re beginning to wear Fall/Winter nail polish colors! YAY!! I hope you guys are as excited as we are! We’re going to talk about some of our favorite polish brands as well as staple colors from each of those brands, so grab a snack, this may be a long one!

First up is OPI! A long time favorite for most nail polish lovers! The applicator to this polish is to die for, the perfect width to get an even application. OPI carries a wide range of colors, quite possibly the widest range on the market so you are sure to find one you love! Long lasting and durable, you can’t go wrong with OPI. Here are some of our favorite colors:

Tell Me About It Stud - If you love Grease as much as Leigh does, you’ll really appreciate the name of this true red nail polish. You may think its a little bright for fall and winter, but honestly, we think red is one of those year-round colors that you can’t go wrong with.

Olive For Green - Quite possibly the only wearable green on earth. Perfect army green for fall!

Next up we’re talking Morgan Taylor, newer to us but we fell in love instantly with the formula and long wearing capability, even with our hands always being in water, this baby LASTS! Their line isn’t wide as OPI’s but theres still a favorite in there that we MUST mention.
