Friday Faves: Beauty Edition

Hi, everyone! My name is Meg O. and I blog over at O. is Me! If you like makeup, babies, and other random crap, you probably will enjoy my blog. So come on by and say hi!

Yep, that's me!
I'm so flattered Stephanie asked me to guest blog for her while she's off in Hawaii making the rest of us jealous! I love me some Steph! But really, what's not to love about her? Funny, pretty, sweet, and down to earth? Yeah, that babe is a total package. So, thank you, Stephanie, for having me here today!

Stephanie told me that she enjoys blogging about her "Friday Favorites" so I figured I would give y'all a Friday Favorites - Meg O. Beauty Edition!

I wanted to give you a short list of my favorite things of all time! This was a really hard list to make because I have so many favorite beauty items, but I did narrow it down for you guys. I wanted to focus on the things that I use daily or that I keep repurchasing. If I repurchase something, that is momentous because I am so makeup ADD!

So, let's get right to it, shall we?

I have tried all sorts of foundations, from high end to drugstore. In fact, my makeup drawer currently houses about 7 different foundations. Out of all the millions I've tried, I just keep coming back to Revlon Colorstay. It provides amazing coverage, stays put, and doesn't become an oil slick on my not so dry (read: teenager oily) face. I did a more thorough review of the product here, if you'd like to check that out! But please forgive my fat pregnant face.

I know it's a bit silly to think to reach in your pantry for your Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but I'm telling you - it's the best darn makeup remover I've ever used. I don't even buy makeup remover anymore. I keep a small little travel bottle in my shower and I use it before my face wash. Sometimes you can find the best beauty items just in your kitchen! I shower at night, so that's why I do that. I did a post here on more details on why I love it, so be sure to check it out.

If you're like me and battle perpetual dark circles under your eyes, no matter how much sleep you get, you may want to invest in this little magical under eye concealer. It is actually a "corrector", which basically corrects the color you are trying to be rid of. I would definitely recommend heading to the Bobbi Brown counter to get matched with the correct color, however. If you are using the wrong color, it won't be effective. See my more in-depth review of the product here.

Okay, I really couldn't pick one here because I use both of these palettes every single day. This pick probably doesn't come as a shock because everyone and their cat likes the Urban Decay Naked Palette. But I love both of them! I honestly think either one of these palettes are just the perfect set of neutrals. I feel like the Naked 1 palette is more of a "warmer" palette, while the Naked 2 has more "cooler" colors. If you would like to see my review of the palettes side by side, check it out here. Yep, I pretty much review everything. Haha.

This is probably the best money I've spent on my skincare routine. Let's not mention the fact that it just broke right after my year warranty was up and I have to order another one. I mean, well, maybe we can mention that fact, because I love it so much I will buy it again. Anyway, my skin has never felt better. Using the Clarisonic Mia (I feel I don't need any other model) leaves my skin constantly soft and exfoliated, fine lines are softened, and best of all, it really helps with my hormonal, cystic acne. And you bet your sweet toosh I reviewed the product in depth, including a picture of my face without makeup here.

What about you gals? What's some of the beauty items you keep repurchasing or can't life without?

Happy Friday! Thanks for having me here today!!

  1. Hi!

    Newcomer here. Absolutely love your blog!

    Eyeliner : I have tried a million eyeliners but the two that stand out to me are: Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Pencil and Almay's Eyeliner. Both glide on smoothly and stay put.

    Bronzer: I keep going back to Hoola by Benefit

    Highlighter: Hands down, Moon Beam by Benefit. I swear by this and use it every day. It lightens your face without feeling heavy or looking overdone so you're left with a dewy glow. Every person that I have introduced the product too falls in love with it.

    Eyeshadow: I cannot live without Urban Decay and M.A.C.'s eyeshadow. Both stay on all day/night.


  2. i love meg! these are some great favorites too
