Happy Monday! I had another post planned for today but saw that the Beautycounter Friends and Family Sale is going on through midnight tonight!  This is a rare chance to get 15% off your favorite products or clean up your beauty routine if you’ve been thinking about it!

Here are my make up favorites but their skincare, haircare and body and men’s line are on sale, too!  My girls love the charcoal soap, the body scrub is a favorite and my hubby loves the entire men’s line.

Beautycounter has several new eye shadow palettes.  The 9-color palette comes in 3 color combinations: ClassicRomanticStatement and Iconic.  They also have an 18 color palette called Necessary Neutrals.  The one I chose is Romantic. It is the perfect size for travel, too.   You can learn how I use the palette here.

I can’t say enough about the Beautycounter Creme Blush.  I use it everyday on cheeks and my lips.  This product is perfect for travel because it is multipurpose!  It is perfect for the summer heat as it stays in place.  In the winter it’s a great layer of moisture as well.  I switched to the Rose Glow cream highlighter blush for spring/summer but Caramel has been my go-to for years.  It’s the perfect neutral and great on lips and cheeks.  I use it everyday on cheeks and my lips.  This product is perfect for travel because it is multipurpose!

The Touchup Concealer pen in light is something I use EVERY DAY not matter what.  It’s easy to apply, covers my dark circles well and lasts all day.  My girls are a bit more fair and use the Fair color.

And I’m a FOREVER fan of Beautycounter’s Mascaras.  I’ve written about them here. I use the Lengthening Mascara topped with one coat of the Volumizing Mascara every day.  They last all day and I never need a touchup.  The mascara combo and concealer are the two products I never leave the house without using!

I love the Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer with SPF20 in #2. I use the tinted moisturizer at night on special occasions as sort of a foundation.

My favorite lip colors are the glosses in Opal, Bare Shimmer, and Bellini and the Lip Sheers in Petal, Twig and Lily.

If you’ve read my blog for any time at all, you probably know Clean Beauty is important to me and that Beautycounter is one of my very favorites.  For a while, I had a pretty large team under me for this amazing brand.  But as the blog grew, I shifted my focus to building this space but I still have a small team and others who join from time to time.  If that is something you are interested in, drop me a line here.

Beautycounter’s Friends and Family Sale offering 15% off Sitewide!  This is the perfect time to switch out a few products or try a new one you’ve been eyeing!  For any order you place and enter my name as the consultant, I’ll send you samples of other Beautycounter products another fun gift as well.
