OH my goodness, the excitement I have about Ulta Beauty’s 21 Days of Beauty is next level. Ulta Beauty has always been my go-to for stocking up on makeup, and ever since we got our own store in my little town, it’s often the place I go to cruise the aisles if I have a few extra minutes — you know, “just to look” (wink).
Every day during the 21 Days of Beauty, you can score 50% off specific products for just 24 hours (think IT Cosmetics, Mac, Tarte, and more — I’m telling you, we’re talking quality). If you follow along with us on The Mom Edit Instagram, I’ll be showing up on stories throughout the event to let you know about some of my go-to products you can grab for yourself, but today there are three (!) of my favorite items available for 50% off — Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, Lancôme La Base Pro Primer, and the ever so dreamy bareMinerals highlighters!
As someone with extra dry skin, I take lotions and creams very, very seriously. A good daily cream has to be thick enough to actually feel hydrating — but not so thick that it clogs my pores. I want a cream to absorb into my skin, but in a way that still creates a smoother, creamier surface than normal. This Pro-Collagen Marine Cream does all of this, and has the added benefit of firming the skin (+ reducing the appearance of wrinkles, seriously major score)! This cream naturally smells so delicious, too, because of the key ingredients used: mimosa & rose.
You know how I keep talking about my dry skin? The best thing I ever did for that issue is adding a makeup primer into my routine. A primer, on top of my normal daily skin routine, acts as another added moisture layer. I usually have problems with makeup looking a bit cakier than it does on those with normal-to-oily skin types, but a primer totally solves that. On top of that, there’s just the epic benefit of your makeup staying longer, and with this specific primer, you get a soft-focus effect, reducing the look of lines and imperfections. It’s also oil-free (!) so it works for all skin types. Lancôme in general is one of those brands that I’m having an increasing appreciation for — you really do get what you pay for with their products!
Oooo baby, highlighters are one of my top favorite makeup items. They’re just FUN — and it’s the one thing I always get compliments on. The bareMinerals highlighters give a natural, dew-kissed glow and last for all-day wear. My favorite is the color “Free” (also called Champagne) because it’s neutral enough that I can wear it with any look. I love swiping some across my cheekbones, but also on my brow bones and a dab right above my lip!
