After some majoring spring cleaning of both clothing and beauty items, it was time to pick out some new items for spring as well as repurchase a few favorites. Mini reviews of my spring 2015 picks below! XOXO

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: I started using this foundation in college and have purchased it on and off ever since. It's a really nice, light weight foundation with coverage that goes from sheer to medium depending on how much you apply. 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer: My favorite is Cle De Peau and I've yet to find something better but this is pretty great and the price point is way more accessible. It's perfect for under eye circles! I use the color Custard for reference. 

Tata Harper Tata's Daily Essentails: I've been wanting to try Tata Harper's 100% natural,  anti aging line for a while but the price point is a little hard to swallow ... Sephora recently had a 15% off promo and I decided to try this kit which contains 7 products from her line. It is AMAZING! I have such a hard time with skincare since my skin is really sensitive but this is probably the best line I've ever tried. I do think that to really get the results from her products you need to use the line exclusively but I really think it's worth it [also make sure you read the directions for each product since some need to go on dry or wet skin to get the full benefits]. I've already repurchased a few of the items in full size [including this cleanser and this serum]. Love how great this brand is for your skin and what the company stands for!

Arcona Reozone SPF 40 Sunscreen: This is one of the only face sunscreens that doesn't irritate my skin or leave a greasy film. Definitely a great staple with the summer months ahead!

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe: I previously never used any sort of product in my brows besides the occasional clear gel for special occasions but this makes such a difference. There is a pencil on one side to fill in any sparse areas and the other side has a little brush to blend everything together.

Mac Kohl Eyeliner in Teddy: I used this eyeliner in high school and still love the color. It's a really pretty dark brown that's a little softer for daytime than black but still does a great job defining eyes and making them pop.

Mac Lip Pencil in Subculture + Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup: This duo makes the prettiest nude lip - great to wear during the day or paired with a darker eye at night!

Tata Harper Be True Lip Treatment: The perfect ultra moisturizing treatment to put on before bed or when you wake up in the morning. It's also all natural and full of antioxidants like rhubarb, acai and green tea oils - smells great too!
