Once you get in a routine with your skin care, autopilot can be somewhat easy to maintain. But what about when you loose a little momentum? Recent events of 2020 and 2021 have caused a lot of us to pull back on our regular salon and spa treatments. Many of us are a little lost with the practice of self care. Feet are often the first area to be neglected. Let’s Be Pedi is a 3-step system by ATAERA BELLA aiming to help get your pedicure-at-home game back on point. They use natural plant based and cruelty free ingredients that deliver both the nourishment our feet needs and the aromatherapy experience we crave. Starting with the Foot Soak, this herbal blend replenishes dry and cracked feet with a blend of calendula, epsom salt, and lemon. You can follow the soak with the Foot Scrub, an antioxidant-rich gentle exfoliator to buff away rough calloused patches. It contains açai berry, lemon, and lavender for yet another invigorating scent experience. Finally, you can finish your pamper routine with the lovely Foot Butter. The richly hydrating shea butter blend contains calendula, eucalyptus, and lemon. It replenishes and seals in moisture for hours. You can use it on your hands and elbows too! This powerhouse trio will have you sandal-ready in no time.

As you all know, I’m a self-proclaimed beauty junkie. I’m also quite OCD about having enough clean makeup brushes on hand, so I own quite the brush collection. This comprehensive set of professional makeup brushes by Altair Beauty really has it all, and it’s the next purchase I’m making space for in my brush hoard. First off, there’s a brush for nearly every use case. Need to apply eyeshadow, eyebrows, lip products, concealer, foundation, setting powder, contour, or blush? You’re seriously covered and then some. Second, the brush hairs are high quality soft synthetic fibers that can work for both powder and cream products, without shedding off excessively. Lastly, I can’t write this post and not mention the adorable pink chevon print handles that are so original and fun. At $29.99, you just can’t beat the value of this set. Plus, it includes a traveling case so it makes for a perfect holiday gift.

Sometimes, the secret to great looking makeup is all in the application, so it’s essential you have the right tools. At the top of my long wish list to Santa is this set of makeup brushes by Sigma, which can help anyone apply liquid, cream, and powder products like a pro. The trick is in the synthetic fibers designed to not soak up product or shed on your face. The bristles are soft, luxurious, and mostly importantly, won’t eat up and waste your makeup. The kit includes a variety of contoured brushes so you can experiment with application techniques and find which work best with your face shape and foundations. This is a great kit for makeup enthusiasts and beginners alike, and even a single brush makes a fantastic stocking stuffer!
