Barefoot Blonde

NIGHT CREAM: SkinCeuticals / PALETTE: MAC (made in store! More details below) / LIQUID MATTES: Stila ‘Dusty Rose’ and bareMinerals ‘Boss’ / SURF MOUSSE: Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam / BODY WASH: Philosophy

First I wanted to preface this post by saying that this post is not in any way sponsored. Lately I have been holding back from doing favorites posts like these because sometimes when I talk about a product or brand I end up getting comments asking why I didn’t disclose that it was sponsored, when it wasn’t. I started this blog talking about products I love and I would love to continue to be able to do that, especially since these are products I get asked about a lot! I love trying new products and always have. Whenever I start to use something over and over and over again I feel the need to share and tell people! So here are the things I have been using a bunch lately.

  1. SkinCeuticals Lipid Restore: I went into Visage with my friend Cara to get a facial while I was in Utah and they recommeded SkinCeuticals .. they are the second medical spa to recommend them since they are medical grade products I guess.. SO I have been trying to give medical grade a go! I actually got this one after I heard my friend Emily rave about it. So I got it and it is sooo good!!
  2. MAC Palette: This isn’t something I can link to directly since I custom made this in the store. Me and my friends went in and got matched for custom palettes — in mine I got a highlighter, cream blush, eyebrow shadow, concealer, and 4 eyeshadows. Since I got it I have used it EVERY single day! With the exception of mayyybe like 2 days haha. Really though its so nice having it all right there. It was also my first time trying a cream blush and I am 100% converted.
  3. Stila ‘Dusty Rose’ & bareMinerals ‘Boss’: Chances are if you see me wearing a lip color it is one of these two since they are always in my purse and they look good with almost any outfit! Stila and bareMinerals are my favorite liquid mattes for sure. My only complaints are that Stila does start to feel dry but if you remember to put a balm on before (i just put on a lil bit of eos) then it is fine.
  4. Bumble & Bumble Surf Mousse (kind of more of a spray..ish): This is the product I have been using to scrunch my hair!! I wait til it is almost dry — just a tiny bit damp and then spray this all over and then start scrunching! It holds allllll day which rarely happens with my stick straight hair. I have been trying to do this instead of using heat.
  5. Philosophy Christmas Cookie: Because who doesn’t want to smell like a Christmas cookie?! 😉 but really I love smelling like cookies haha!

Hope you all have a good day!!!!

  1. LOVE this post!! Thanks so much for sharing! I know specifically I will be checking out those lipsticks, it seems whenever you post a snapchat or instagram I always think to myself “I HAVE to get that color!” I’ve been following your blog for a little over a year now and just love everything that you post!! Through your blogging I was encouraged to start my own blog… Thanks for always being so positive and sweet and an awesome inspiration for anyone!

  2. I love MAC palettes! They are so easy to use especially when traveling!

  5. I’d love to try the MAC’s custom palette, I didn’t know they can do that! I was also wondering about the B&B Surf Mousse since I’m trying to stay away fom hot tools as well; I’d like to give it a try on my fine, difficult-to-manage hair haha! 🙂 xo

  6. Ill have to try the surf mousse when Im doing beach waves. I usually put it in damp hair and then blow-dry it to give my hair tons of volume and texture, but will definitely try it when Im air drying it next time!!

  7. Love those lip colors. I have a question though, your hair color has been looking different for some reason and I was wondering if you have changed the color since the last video you made about what you tell your hair stylist, or if it’s still the same?

  8. Amber,
    I’m just about to turn 20 and I’m wondering what your suggestions are for when to start using anti-aging products and doing botox, etc. I have heard many mixed reviews about the age line…thoughts??


  9. Literally just bought the bare minerals lipstick in boss. And honestly I think it’s my favorite liquid matte lipstick formula! It feels soooo good! And I too love those sweet scents. I need to go and get that Christmas cookie gel! (:

    Thanks for sharing your faves! <3

  10. Skinceuticals products are AMAZING. I won a couple products in an online giveaway, and I was sooo impressed. If they weren’t so expensive, I would buy a product of theirs for every single step of my skincare routine. Worth saving up for!!

  11. Thanks for sharing Amber!! I just love your beauty & skincare favorites posts. Skinceuticals is great for cleanser and sunscreen.

  12. Just curious if your extensions “scrunch” when you use the surf mousse? I have naturally curly/wavy hair and am curious if extensions would work if I scrunched my hair?

  13. Thanks for the suggestions and reviews! I love the idea of a custom palette!

  14. Serious eye roll at everyone assuming everything is sponsored 😉 I always love your recommendations! I know it was so incredibly long ago, but I started using the Yes to Carrots line because of you! Favorite face wash still 🙂


  15. I love the SkinCeuticals Lipid Restore, is my favourite cream, is the best anti-aging treatment that I tried.
    Thank you so much for sharing your favourite products!
    I wish you an amazing week!

  16. Amber, congrats on your hair line! What an exciting accomplishment that is for you and David. I”m sure if it will continue to be wildly successful!

    Have you stopped using Estee Lauder? I started using it at your suggestion a few years ago and am obsessed with it. Thanks for the recommendation!

  17. Can you do a post on your favorite things under $25? I cannot afford $125 cream. Thanks!
