Beauty Faves: Emily

These are my favorite types of posts to read so I love today’s series! Here’s what I’ve been using and loving lately! I highlighted the products that are part of Amazon’s 20% off luxe beauty in RED. LUXMAKEUP20 is the code!Small Fry Beauty Faves


I should just put an asterisk by all the products our genius friend Kayti recommended to me. She runs @thebeyoutybureau on Insta and she is my sensei.

Whish Oil Cleanser* — Smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling perfectly balanced and clean (instead of stripped and dry like some water cleansers can.

Cosrx Black Head Power Liquid* — If you don’t have blackheads than get outta this paragraph, but if you do this stuff is amazing. It tightens pores and has actually totally reduced the appearance of them on my face. Like it worked. Shocked.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir — When my face needs a pick me up. When I need a pick me up. The smell is invigorating!

White Wedding Moisturizer* –there’s some sort of fine crystal in this because when you put it on your face is instantly glowing, but its not shimmer or glitter which I DESPISE. Korean Beauty Products are cult favorites and for good reason. Where the US’s list of banned ingredients is like 3 items long, Korea’s is hundreds of items long. I feel safer knowing they are serious about only the best ingredients in their products.


To prime my face I use Jane Irendale. 20% off! Such a great time to buy her products because they’re a little on the expensive side.

Cargo for foundation! I love that it comes in these packets and I can control how much foundation is coming out. I feel like I waste less and it has great coverage.

Watching make-up videos I started putting my eye concealer on after foundation. #sheep. I love Nars Concealer in Custard.

Jouer blush is so great and pigmented. I’ve been loving Amaryllis for Fall, I feel like I can’t get away with my pinks as well anymore and this feels more on-season.


Maybe it’s with my age or losing elasticity or something but I’ve noticed my eyelids are creasing my make-up lately so I grabbed this Jane Iredale eyelid primer. Bonus: It makes my eye make up virtually indestructible all day.

You might notice I’m the only Small Fry that doesn’t use lash extensions! That is because I am a picker. I can have those suckers off in a matter of days. Instead of dealing with that mess I just focus on taking great care of the lashes I do have! This LashFood Conditoning Mascara is awesome.

I used to buy eyeshadows by the pot but now I am on the palette train. I get sick of colors after a while so this cures my ADD perfectly. If you use your 20% off coupon use it on this Lorac Palette, it’s just a good deal and so much bang for your buck!

Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner — I’ve used this for years and I have it delivered in my Amazon Subscribe & Save every other month. I just don’t need anything else. Perfect for everyday or a dramatic cat-eye.


You all know I am a matte MAC lip freak which isn’t included in the sale this time, but check out the ones that are here! (For Mac I love Pure Zen for everyday, So Chaud or Morange for a coral or orange, Blankety for a nude, Flamingo for a hot pink ish orange, Diva for a deep red, and MAC Red for a true red.


Fall Nail colors are my JAM. I rarely stray from a deep dark burgundy, but for toes OPI “Shh Its A Secret” Like so brown its almost black, Essie’s “Playing Koi” – hot orange is a fave all year round for both hands and feet!

And my secret to great make-up has to be the brush situation. A high quality brush that is clean is the key. Crappy brushes filled with excess make-up will never give you the look you want! I will never stray from Sigma Brushes (just get yourself this for Christmas and be happy) and this spray cleaner is great for quick cleansing.

FRYday: Nicole

Hey friends!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that Emily and Jenna and I take turns in the spotlight each Friday. It seems like ages since I’ve been writing a Fryday post. Happy to be here to chat about my recent favorites things!untitled-1

On my table, always. This. I met the founder of Soma last year at a retreat in San Francisco. Thats when I knew life would never be the same. They just released this gorgeous water bottle that I am literally dead over. NOTHING is more perfect.

On the floor in Dash and Sunny’s room is this pretty rug!

In the concrete hallway for this cool fall weather I added this runner.

I created a little study/lounge room upstairs next to my bedroom. Currently I’m sitting in this pretty thing! Next I want to buy this black one for downstairs in the living room.

These are little wild, but sometimes I’m down with some wild sunnies. The tortoise keeps them tame.

Im loving clogs this fall, I especially appreciate the extra height these platforms give me, when I’m feeling a little frump.

AAAANNNNNDDDD that’s a wrap!

Love ya!
