DRUGSTORE BEAUTY HAUL 6.15.15

Drug Store Beauty Haul

HAPPY MONDAY! I'm starting off the week with some of my new favorite beauty stand-bys. As noted in the video, I've been wearing makeup so much more often lately because of cheerleading that it makes sense to start looking for bargains. Check out the video and let me know what you think!

My New Beauty Muse: Blake Lively

Blake Lively

My makeup style has changed so much over the last year. The more obsessed I've become with new products, the more I've started to switch them out to try new things. I also have had a huge transformation since becoming a pro cheerleader. I just have to wear more makeup than I ever have had to before. 

Over the last week, I've started to really channel Blake Lively as my style muse. We both have hooded eyelidsand I've noticed how polished she always looks, so I'm totally stealing her looks. I want to do a video this weekend about my new makeup routine. Perhaps a get ready with me before my Friday night out with my Buc Buddy (such a silly name for our partners in crime at cheerleading), Kelsea. What do y'all think? Tweet me about it if you love the idea :)

Blake Lively

Mrs. Ryan Reyonds should probably be my hair muse too. I'm just overall obsessed with her look. 

Who's your favorite style muse?

Have a great day everyone!

Much Love, Lindsey

Our Night Out in Vegas!

Vegas Night LookWe've been in Vegas for two nights now and have been having such a blast! We took last night as a chance to really dress up and I took full advantage. I pumped up my look by using my gambling winnings to take a little trip to Sephora.

Ardell Lash Multipack

To make my eyes pop, I wore some serious faux lashes (See them here: Ardell Multipack Demi Wispies Fake Eyelashes, $12). I've been wearing lashes more frequently and finally feel like I have the hang of putting them on. I used to wear them for dance competitions when I was younger, but the ones I wear now look more natural and really bring out my smaller eyes, which tend to be eclipsed by my nose sometimes. It's weird the things you start to notice with your face and how easy it is to find products to bring out the things you love (brows, lips and eyes on me) and tone down the things you don't love so much (my nose). If you want to try out lashes don't forget to get the water soluble glue (Here's what I use: Duo Lash Adhesive, Clear, 0.25 Ounce, $3.99 ). Don't make the mistake of getting the super sticky stuff and accidentally gluing your eyelids together. I've done it. Not fun.

fresh sugar lip treatment cherry

 I also splurged a little and finally bought one of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments. I am dying in the dry desert air, Florida humidity does me well. My lips would probably fall off if I didn't keep something on them. I like that it also adds a little color. I didn't want to wear a full red lip while wearing the cray cray lashes. I've always heard to choose one part of your face to really stand out. Less is more. (Check it out here: Fresh Sugar CHERRY Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 (FULL SIZE) .15 oz. $22)

I love dressing up and have totally taken advantage of the Vegas scene to take it to the next level. I've been posting some to Instagram, but to see all the craziness, follow me on Snapchat: @lindseybellbell. And if you want to see all of the things I love, I always add everything I talk about to my Amazon Wish List. More from Vegas soon.

Much Love, Lindsey

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Lindsey Brooks Bell

It's the last day of my new beauty routine posts. It's been so fun talking about all my new additions to my routine and I've loved talking to you all on Twitter about your opinions on the subject. Today is my favorite day and definitely going to be the longest because I am always on the look out for a new makeup to try. Before I get started, I want to know more about your all time favorite beauty products or some new ones I'm missing out on! Tell me in the comments or tweet me (@lindseybell)! Alright, let's get started!

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation - Cream Ivory, $47

I spoke yesterday about how I mix my moisturizer with this foundation to create more or less coverage depending on my skintone at the time. It also makes this little tube of foundation last FOREVER. I've had my current one for over a year now. I bought a new one months ago thinking I was bound to run out any day and it just hasn't happened. That's when you know it's worth it to splurge a little. If I had stuck with my old Neutrogena foundation, I would have paid less ($15ish), but probably easily gone through 4 bottles in the last year. So technically I saved money. More upfront, less over the long run. I use the color Sand Beige.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: BOBBI BROWN Creamy Concealer BEIGE, $23

I'm kind of meh about using concealer. I have dark circles, but I also am developing fine lines from smiling so hard. Not the worst reason I guess. I don't always wear it, but when I am feeling super worn out, I'll slide some of this on. It doesn't settle into my little eye wrinkles and brightens up well. Good stuff.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUPGet it: Smashbox Cosmetics Smashbox Cosmetics Step-By-Step Contour Kit, $62

This, of everything I have added to my daily routine, has been the most significant to my overall look. Kim Kardashian is the queen of contour and has built an entire beauty movement based entirely on accentuating your positives and camouflaging your negatives. So, I wanted to be able to do that too. It just takes a little bit of knowledge and practice to learn how to contour. I watched a ton of YouTube vids on it, checked out Pinterest and followed the pointers included with the compact. You don't have to be a makeup artist to pull off the look. Such an easy all in one compact.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get it: Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil - Blonde, $23

Filling in my brows is relatively new to my routine. I've been through a couple of brow pencils and this one definitely looks the most natural. Your brows frame your eyes and I feel like finish your whole look.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: L'Oreal Paris Pencil Perfect Self-Advancing Eyeliner, Carbon Black, 0.01 Ounces, $6.99

 I feel like eyeliner is the first thing you start experimenting with when you first start wearing makeup. Sometimes you can go your whole life using the same kind (my mom's been using Clinique since forever). But seriously, it's worth a shot to check this one out. I usually layer my smudgeable eye pencil with a liquid liner that stays all day, but I could wear this one a little smokier and by itself. And you can't beat the price.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: L'Oreal Paris Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner, Carbon Black, 0.05 Ounces, $6.99

I say step out and try new things, but alas, I've been wearing this liquid liner on and off since I first started wearing winged eyeliner while dancing in the ballet in 2nd grade. This is one of those suggestions that aren't because it's new to my beauty routine, it's because if it isn't new to yours, it should be. It's seven dang dollars. I can't justify spending more money on something that has never, ever done me wrong at the lower pricepoint. Liquid liner can be scary, but I just got my mom to changeover recently. It's just so sexy to rock a little winged eye every once in a while, or in my case, every damn day.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: Naked Basics Eyeshadow Makeup Palette, $45

The Naked palettes are amazing, however, I am not a huge eyeliner person. I like using neutrals here and there and adding a little color here and there. I still wanted to get in on the fun though! So, I got one of the basics palettes. I feel like this is my go-to over all of the other shadows I am carrying around. It complements my current makeup trends really well. Sometimes less is more in a palette ya know?

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: Too Faced Cosmetics, Shadow Insurance, 0.35 Ounce, $12

Speaking of eyeshadow, have trouble making it last all night? This stuff legit works.

New Year, New Beauty Routine: MAKEUP

Get It: Yves Saint Laurent 'Rouge Pur Couture' Lip ColorNet Wt. 0.13 Oz., $52.99

I KNOW! I know. I can't believe how much I paid for this either. Basically an arm and a leg. BUT. It's the best, best, best lipstick ever. I have tried so many reds trying to get one that works for me that doesn't make me feel yucky. This one smells like lavender, stay on all night, looks creamy on my lips and makes me feel like a movie star. It's single handed most noticeable thing I add to my face for a night out and my hands down favorite. I love my Marilyn Monroe lips!

Makeup should be fun and I have had a blast trying out some new things recently. I'll keep updating you guys on anything new I find! Don't forget to write me some suggestions of things to try!

Much Love, Lindsey

New Year, New Beauty Routine: SKINCARE

Lindsey Brooks Bell

I’m always on the lookout for new beauty products that can make my life simpler or make me feel prettier. I spend everyday with a camera in my face so making sure I look my best is important. I did a beauty video in June of last year, but have made some updates over the last few months that are seriously amazing. I have a ton of new suggestions so I’ve decided to split them up over a couple of posts. Today I am talking specifically about my skincare routine!

Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser

New Year, New Beauty Routine: SkincareGet it: Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser, 16 Ounces, $9-$64 (depending on size)

Let's start with the basis of my routine, this easy peezy one step cleanser. I use this in the morning and at night with my Clarisonic. Afterwards my skin feels clean and smooth. I feel like very simply, it cleans my face without any of the other crap. Pricey, but if you buy it in bulk you can save a little bit.

Clarisonic Mia 1

New Year, New Beauty Routine: SKINCAREGet it: Clarisonic Mia 1 Skin Cleansing System, White, $99

I've spoken a lot about my ever-growing love of my Clarisonic. This is a skin care necessity in my opinion. I had read a lot of conflicting views before I bought it that made me question spending the $130 (at the time) on this thing that cleans my face. The people who are vocal about their issues with Clarisonic are very vocal. Finally, after suffering multiple breakouts in early 2014 and seeing some of the comments on our YouTube vlogs (people are not nice sometimes), I was willing to try anything. I haven't looked back. I haven't had a single breakout since, and beyond that, I can count the number of blemishes that have developed on my face since start using this twice daily on one hand. There is a new version of device that just came out and I would love to try it, but will have to wait until my current Clarisonic bites the dust before spending upwards of $250 on a new one. Love, love, love this thing.

Karuna Brightening Face Mask

New Year, New Beauty Routine: SKINCAREGet it: Karuna Karma Kit, $28

I have grown to really love face masks. I usually try two or three different ones a month. Karuna makes different kinds, targeting different things that you want to change in your skin. I like them all. My skin always feels and looks amazing afterwards.

Olay Moisturizer

New Year, New Beauty Routine: SKINCAREGet it: Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Sensitive, 4 fl. Oz., $6.94

I have oily skin, but with patches of dry spots. I am starting to notice fine lines, but still, as recently as last year, had crazy issues with acne. It's been hard to find something that balances all that. This moisturizer works well with my skin, has SPF in it and is inexpensive. I mix this daily with my makeup base. Originally it was going on a little thick and looking cakey. So I mix it with a little moisturizer to make it go on smoother. It's like creating my own tinted moisturizer that I can decide how much coverage it has over my skin.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover

New Year, New Beauty Routine: SKINCAREGet it: Neutrogena Cosmetics Makeup Remover, 3.8 oz, $4.92

The majority of my life I've just washed my face at night, gotten off whatever makeup I could, woke up the next day, tried to get the rest and just put new stuff on over the old stuff. Full makeup removal was a step I just didn't have time for. Now, with having to vlog, sometimes before I have full face on, I would rather have a completely clean slate than be filming myself with raccoon eyes so I've started taking it off. I don't splurge on anything crazy. Neutrogena's Makeup Remover does the job and the price is right.

Skincare is something that is super personal. I like trying new products and I've found that it's sometimes best to try the pricier option to see the best results. Lucky for us though, there are also some great everyday options that save time and money. Hopefully, I've helped you find something new that works for you. Tomorrow we'll talk makeup!

Much Love, Lindsey
