Whatever I feel Friday: Favorites of 2018

Hello my fellow beauties! I hope this Friday finds you well and that you have an exciting weekend ahead. For me, I get to look forward to IMATS on Sunday with my mom! It’s the one constant special thing that just she and I do together every year. In fact this will be our fourth year going- Our first convention was in January of ’15. Anyway, tangent over.
I bring to you, for your reading pleasure, my 2018 beauty favorites! I would suggest going to the bathroom now and getting a meal to snack on while you peruse this post. Each section will be clearly marked, as will anything I consider to be a Holy Grail product. I hope you enjoy and be sure to leave your comments and questions below. Let us begin!

I am giving the technique that Allie Glines uses to set her makeup and once I found a fan in my house, I found out that it totally is the most awesome way to set your face ever! Seriously!

Well, that’s it folks! If you made it all the way to the end of this post, you’re amazing and I love you (even if you didn’t, I still love you!) A little late, I know, but in my mind if I get it done by the end of the second week of January- yearly favorites are fair game, hah! I would love to know what some of your favorites were from this last year- beauty related or not, I’d love to know! I hope to see you tomorrow for some of my favorites from this week’s makeup bag… box… thing. And as always, don’t forget to be bold, be beautiful, and be YOU!
