my latest 'empties' roundup

Shop

i don’t know about you guys but i always love seeing people’s “empties” aka the beauty products they used until every last drop was gone! i feel like it shows you which products REALLY work for someone that they truly loved. i try out SO many different beauty products and don’t always have ’empties’ because sometimes i decide a product wasn’t the best fit for my skin or makeup preference or hair etc. BUT…when i DO finish a product…y’all know i love it with every fiber of my being.

PIN IT

so today i wanted to round up my latest “empties” for you guys! the skincare / makeup products i used every last drop of that i plan on repurchasing (or have already repurchased)!

y’all can click / tap on any product below to shop!

i have been wearing this for over a year now and truly can't imagine my makeup routine without it. i've shared it countless times on my stories. it's a cream bronzer and blush in one stick. doesn't take up hardly any room in your makeup bag, blends soooo seamlessly, and the bronzer + blush color are both PERFECT (my favorite shade is 5.5). you can use this as just a regular bronzer or use it to contour. i used to be afraid of cream bronzers before this one but it really is SO easy to apply and looks absolutely stunning.

i've tried at least 20 different primers over the years and alwayyyssss go back to this hourglass primer. i have a few i rotate between but this is definitely my ride or die. it blurs your imperfections / pores, and creates the smoothest canvas for applying the rest of your foundation (and i feel like it makes your foundation last longer too!).

shop now 

 

the combination of this foundation with the primer i mentioned above is *chef's kiss ! truly gives you the smoothest most flawless skin! this is my favorite, holy grail full coverage foundation. makes your skin look so smooth and silky without looking cakey or fake. again, i have a few different foundations i rotate between but when i'm like 'i need my makeup to look 100 today', then this is the foundation i always choose!

i use these toning pads after cleansing my face, morning and night. they have made a huge difference in the overall texture of my skin, and also with cleaning + preventing breakouts. they don't dry my skin out and they also boost the efficacy of vitamin c serum which i apply after. can't imagine my skincare routine without these!

shop now 

 

the GOAT of all vitamin c serums. it's hydrating, helps stimulate collagen production, protects your skin from environmental damage, prevents fine lines and wrinkles, and so much more. i apply this every single morning (after using the toning pads above) and anytime my liquid gold is empty...i repurchase the exact same thing, because it really is THAT good. my mom is also hooked on this stuff and her skin looks incredible!

shop now 

 

this is the cleansing balm i use as the first step of my nighttime skincare routine every night. i apply it to dry skin to melt off all my makeup and it somehow gets ALL my makeup off without stripping my skin of it's natural oils. so my skin feels hydrated and fresh after, but also super clean bc it melts away all makeup - even mascara!

this is the lash serum i started using after i had lyla and it has helped me lashes to grow SO healthy and long! i had lash extensions for years and decided to take a break from them and just get my natural lashes healthy again and this has been a game changer! i apply morning and night every single day and have been doing that for about 5 months now...and my bottle is just now empty! so it definitely lasts a really long time!

shop now 

 

i mix a few drops of these in with my tinted SPF every single morning for a natural, bronzed, glowy no makeup look! these hydrate your skin, protect it from pollutants, and also give you the most natural, glowy bronzed skin! they are viral for a reason! i also love that they lay really well underneath foundation and don't get ~~pilly~~ if that makes sense!

shop now 

let me know if you guys like this type of post / beauty review! if so, i’ll try and share more ’empties’ with you guys on a regular basis.

thanks for reading!
