My Fall Beauty Products :: Up to 20% off at Sephora

When Fall rolls around, I tend to switch up my beauty routine just a dash. I add in some darker colors, bring in heavier moisturizers… all to keep up with the colder temperatures, chilling winds and of course, festive holiday spirit. In this post, I’m sharing my fall beauty products from skincare to makeup to hair. Sephora is having their annual beauty insider sale, where you can get up to 20 percent off all items at Sephora! If you’ve been a Color & Chic reader for a while, you know I exclusively use these sales to stock up on makeup for the year. This way I get all the items I need, 20 percent off and I’m set until the next sale.

The Magic Behind My Favorite Sunscreen with Supergoop

Sunscreen is always a big part of my skincare routine, especially in the summer. As a reporter in the field, the sun beats down on me almost every day. It’s so important to wear SPF every single day. Not just when you go to the beach. Today, I’m partnering with Supergoop! to share some of my favorite SPF products, especially for daily use. That’s why I love Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen, which is also a makeup primer. The magic behind Unseen is how it’s truly invisible. You can’t smell anything and you can’t see it on your skin. There’s no white cast which is so typical of sunscreen. Unseen keeps my makeup looking incredible, a far-cry from the usual slip and slide or oil break up that’s so common. When applying, it truly feels like velvet or silk, so soft on my skin. Completely unlike greasy, sticky sunscreens.

My Summer Beach Beauty Essentials

Hello my beautiful friends! I hope your week is going well so far. Since we are kicking off beach weather in Coastal Virginia, I want to share my beach beauty essentials. These are items I love to bring to the beach to keep my skin healthy and at its best. It’s so important to take your skin’s health very seriously. Take a little time to get your skin ready for the sun and you can enjoy your time soaking up that vitamin sea! There is nothing worse than coming home from the beach with sunburned, peeling and dehydrated skin. It’s not a good look and will most certainly age you rapidly. We don’t want that! Of course, in conjunction with these beach beauty essentials, don’t forget to drink tons of water to stay hydrated from the inside out! Now, let’s get to the essentials!

Moments with Maya :: My New Scent for Spring with Tocca

When the season changes, I love to add new scents to my perfume collection. My newest addition is Maya by TOCCA, which also happens to be their newest scent. They graciously sent me this perfume to try and it smells divine! Before I dive into the notes making this beautiful fragrance, let’s talk about this stunning bottle. I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging and the violet ombre bottle with the gold ornate topper is breathtaking. It definitely stands out on my dresser since my other perfumes are in more neutral bottles.
