1. Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Moisturizer ($38)
There’s been a lot of hype around this moisturizer, so naturally, I grew more and more skeptical. Color me surprised, but I really love the consistency of this moisturizer. It’s rich enough for winter while being light enough for someone with combination skin. Love it and it now has a permanent place in my moisturizer rotation.
2. Give Me Glow Juicy Olive Palette ($30)
Olive green is one of my favorite eyeshadow colors, and the Juicy Olive Palette form Give Me Glow is the pinnacle of olive-toned goodness. The mattes are pigmented and great for all skin tones, and the shimmers are beautifully metallic.
3. Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum ($58)
Herbivore advertises this as a “smoothing serum” and smoothing is exactly right. After just one use, I woke up the next morning to infinitely smoother skin without any irritation or dryness.
4. MAC Iridescent Powder/Loose in ‘Golden Bronze’* ($29)
I’ve recently gotten into using highlighter and MAC iridescent loose power in ‘Golden Bronze’ is perfect for medium to deep skin tones. The power is finely milled for a beautiful highlighted effect.
