Beauty

I love getting all dolled up, but I’d be lying if I said I was a beauty guru. I most certainly am not! But I do enjoy sharing helpful tips and tricks when it comes to hair, makeup, and skincare that work for me. And I love sharing new products I’ve fallen in love with as well. Find those here!

Sephora Savings Event

The Sephora Savings event starts today. For those of you not familiar with the sale, Sephora has two HUGE sales each year. They had a spring sale earlier this year. And their savings event always happens in the fall. The sale starts today and goes until November 15th. You must be a Sephora member to use the sale code. It’s easy (and free!) to become a member. To sign up,…

2021 Gift Guides: Beauty-Lover

Another gift guide is live for y’all today and this one might be my favorite yet! I have lots of makeup and skincare favorites, but I wanted to dig a little deeper on this one (still included some product faves though like the Bader cream and this blush) and really think of some lux items that the beauty lover in your life might look at, maybe even add to their…

Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum: Review & Thoughts

I’ve been trying to get back into beauty reviews lately so I decided to start with some of my absolute ride-or-die products that I’ve been using for a year or more and have repurchased multiple times. One of those products is the Bader Cream and the other is Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum. Now, I’m not an expert on beauty products, I just try a lot of different products for…

Augustinus Bader The Cream: Thoughts & Review

Getting a little fancy today and sharing my thoughts and a little review of the Augustinus Bader The Cream!! I say fancy because in case you don’t know, this face moisturizer is one of the most lux options on the market. I decided to share a review because I feel like there are a lot of questions out there about whether or not the hype is real and if it’s…

Dazzle Dry: My New Favorite Manicure

I love it when my nails are done. Like, it brings me so much joy in such a small, simple way. Why I made the switch from gel manicures: I used to *love* getting dip nails. I loved how they made your nails feel thicker and I would get zero chips for weeks! Plus, it just looked good. I religiously got dip powder for several years until one day I…

My Current Body Care Routine

Diving into body care today because I feel like it’s something I talk about a lot on Stories but don’t really have a reference point for, SO here we are! :) If you’re like, Brighton what the heck is body care? Think of it like skincare, but for your whole body! Things like shaving, moisturizing, sunless tanning, etc! I have a whole routine at this point that I really love…

Tula’s Filter Primer

If you follow me, then you *know* my obsession with Tula runs deep. Truthfully, there are several Tula products I can’t live without, but today’s post is dedicated to one of my ride-or-die items during Summer – their “Filter Primer“. It’s essentially the only product I wear on my skin these days except for when I really feel like getting dressed up, which has been rare for me lately! I’ve…

2 Skincare Tools I’m loving

I love sharing new products with you guys on stories, but I’ve really been slacking when it comes to sharing on my blog as well. And I really miss creating more informative, long-form content here. I love sharing on stories, but once it expires, there’s not really an easy way to share it again (even if it still lives in highlights). So that being said, I wanted to put together…

Sephora Spring Sale

Hi Friends! Another big sale is going on. Sephora has their beauty insider sale two times each year. Once in the spring and once in the late fall. I always wait to stock up on most of my beauty and haircare products during these sales. The discount really adds up when you apply it to most of your products. The Sephora sale is a tiered sale. For those that have…

How I Set Up My Guest Bathroom

Hi, friends! Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve written a blog post, but I’m excited to be back today and share a few updates with y’all about our guest bathroom! If you’re not completely up to date on my life (which is not something I assume BTW, lol), Duncan and I moved back to Dallas in January and just a few short weeks later I gave birth about five…

The Three-Step Skincare Routine I Got Duncan Started On

Raise your hand if you’ve ever caught your husband or boyfriend sneaking into your skincare for moisturizer or maybe even a cleanser! I’m going to guess a bunch of you (figuratively) raised your hand because this has definitely happened in our house – especially since moving to Denver where the air is very dry. This is why I partnered with Nordstrom x Kiehl’s to share some amazing holiday skincare for…

Thought it could be fun to share a few small things I’ve noticed in particular lately…

Curling Iron vs Wand: Which is better?

OK, this post is a big one! I almost talked myself out of doing it because I found myself getting overwhelmed as I sorted through all the details and broke everything down on my head/on paper. Thankfully, I did persevere, LOL, and I’m excited to show you what I learned when comparing curling irons and wands! First things first, there is A LOT of subjectivity to this situation. Obviously I…

Beauty Products I Use Weekly

Hey, friends! Hope y’all are ready for a dose of beauty content because here it is! TBH I’m always trying out different products in this department, but I do have a few ride-or-die kind of items that I’ve kept as part of my routine for a while now so I wanted to share them! What I linked below isn’t comprehensive but like I said, these are some of my favorites. It’s about 90% skincare focused, but I did link this mascara I’ve been loving as well as the Tarte Shape Tape because duh! ;) And of course my Living Proof dry shampoo because I basically can’t leave the house without using it!

My Self Tanning Routine

Hi Friends! Can you believe it’s almost summer already!?! It already feels like summer here in Denver. Recently, I’ve received several requests for my self tanning routine, so  wanted to write an updated post for you guys! I’m also sharing on stories later today as well! I probably do this about once a week. It usually lasts about a week but obviously the first few days are the best! I’ll…

How I’m Transitioning My Beauty for Spring

Sometime over the last five years or so I learned the importance of switching up your beauty routine based on the season. Now, I definitely do not consider myself a skincare/makeup/hair expert, but I try a lot of products for my job and also I just really love playing around with my beauty stuff in general. So expert or not, I have picked up a thing or two over the…
