Feeling uninspired by your everyday, AVG makeup routine? Don’t fret! Today we’re bringing you 5 tried and true makeup and skincare favorites that will have you running to the closest Sephora to add them to your beauty collection!
1. MAKEUP: Highlighter
It’s all about the GLOW- face highlight, that is! The hottest beauty trend right now is to have that perfect, luminous look! But with so many highlighters claiming to be “THE BEST” on the market, how can you ever choose?!
This Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the color Champagne Pop is one of S&J’s faves and is raved by many online. We suggest adding this highlight underneath the arch of your eyebrows, in the inner corner of your eyes, down the brim of your nose, on your cupid’s bow on your upper lip, and where the light hits the top of our cheekbones.
2. MAKEUP: The Eye Shadow Palette of your Dreams!!
We said it! This Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette has the hottest shadow colors of the season. You’ll surely be seeing these colors on all of the models and celebrities’ professional makeup this season. Anastasia Beverley Hills shadows are so rich, yet so easy to blend. This brand never ceases to amaze us!
3. MAKEUP: Eyebrow Gel
*New brand alert!* If you haven’t already heard, Glossier is the hottest up and coming makeup brand. And for a good reason! Glossier was created by the writers of the famous beauty blog, Into The Gloss (one of our faves! check it out here). After years of trying out the best makeup and skincare brands, these beauty editors decided to make their own skincare and makeup products that actually work.
We are currently obsessed with their Boy Brow Eyebrow Gel. The “boy brow” look, where your eyebrows are brushed upwards to look fuller and bushier, is totally on trend.

4. SKINCARE: The Ultimate Lip Balm Treatment
Are your lips feeling a little extra dry from that harsh winter weather? Here’s Jamie’s all time favorite lip balm: Glam Glow’s POUTMUD Wet Lip Balm Treatment. This lip balm is the best of the best for everyday, moisturized lips. This is a must-have product for those of you who frequently wear liquid lipstick- we all know there’s nothing worse than having dry lips when applying this! Added Bonus: the mint scent of this lip balm will have you feeling fresh all day long!
5. SKINCARE: Face Moisturizer
We all know that you can’t get that perfectly luminous makeup look without having hydrated, healthy skin! After trying hundreds of different face lotions, Jamie has finally come across the jackpot: Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. Having sensitive skin, Jamie has searched for years for the perfect face moisturizer that doesn’t clog your pores, yet leaves your face feeling bouncy and fresh, and this is it! While this moisturizer is best for most combination/dry skin types, Clinique also makes a Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream for extremely dry skin and a Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel for oily/combination skin. Pro Tip: Stop by your local Sephora or Ulta for a free sample to try out before you purchase!
