A new year means new beauty buys. What are the first things you have purchased in 2018. My first beauty buys for 2018 are actually things I ordered in 2017 that have arrived, or will arrive in 2018. They are actually restocks of ride or die holy grail products for my professional kit. I have several boudoir shoot jobs coming up and needed to restock my kit.

I had run out of several shades of Face Atelier Ultra Foundation. I adore this foundation so much and I don’t know what I would do without it in my kit. It looks amazing on everyone and I can’t count the number of times I’ve had women say that they thought they hated foundation until I used this on them. Here is the majority of the shades and shade adjusters in the Face Atelier lineup.

I also picked up a new pro 6 pack of Beauty Blenders which are my preferred method of applying Face Atelier Ultra Foundation on clients (and one of my preferred ways of applying foundation in general),

as well as several multipacks of Ardell Demi Whispies which are one of my fave styles of false lashes.
