When it comes to beauty products, there's nowhere I'd rather shop than Sephora inside JCPenney. The selection is HUGE, the products are top notch quality, and they carry all my favorite brands. Of course I enjoy picking up lipsticks, foundation, and more for myself, but this time of year I also love to find products I can gift all the girls in my life that I know they'll go crazy over. Urban Decay has some of the most amazing new products that I LOVE and want to share with you below in case you're doing holiday shopping (or just want to treat yourself- no judgement here!).
I always start my beauty routine with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion- you can use this just on your eyelids or all over your face as a primer. It really moisturizes and helps make-up and eyeshadow go on smoothly (and stay all day).
After applying some tinted moisturizer, I'll use a brush to apply shadow from the Urban Decay Distortion Palette. The colors are SO beautiful and I'll blend based on what I'm wearing that day or how glam I feel like getting- you can go as subtle as you want for work or go all out for a holiday party. That's my favorite thing about this palette- the possibilities are endless!
Next I'll use the Urban Decay 24/7 Eye and Lip pencils- I use the eyeliner first to add a "pop" to my eyes and then go ahead and line my lips to make them look a little fuller (I need all the help I can get). I'll put on my favorite Vice Lipstick in "Big Bang", the prettiest shade of pink, before finishing off my eyes with the Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara. I've tried many a mascara and can honestly say this one is fabulous- it goes on thick and does the trick in just one or two coats depending on your preference. I use one coat for daily wear and add a second if I have an event or party that night. It never clumps and dries quickly, which is always nice for a mom on the go!
I always finish my look off with the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray- I've learned from many a makeup artist, along with my own trial and error, just how important a good setting spray is. This one is amazing and keeps my makeup in place all day, even in the muggy Houston humidity! I always throw an extra lipstick or two in my purse as I'm heading out because I'm inevitably drinking Diet Coke or coffee and need a touch-up. :)
In case you're wanting to try any of these products for yourself (and you should!), they're all available at Sephora inside JCPenney AND it's your lucky day because I'm giving away one of the Urban Decay Distortion Palettes over on Instagram (@brittfullwood)! Head over there to enter- I promise this is a palette that you'll love as it looks great on all skin tones and the shadows go on like butter.
I try to keep my makeup routine simple and efficient as a stay-at-home mom who's always on the go. Thankfully Sephora inside JCPenney and Urban Decay make it easy on me!
What's on your Christmas wishlist this year? I'd love to hear in the comments!
