October Beauty Favorites: Makeup, Skincare and Hair

Beauty Featured



I don’t know about you, but we are constantly on the search for the best beauty products. Because of this, we asked some Bond Girls to share their “must-haves” when it comes to beauty, skin care and their daily routine. Check out some of their favorite products!

Clare’s Skin Essentials

Kiehl’s Healthy Skin Starter Kit

During the summer, my skin was breaking out and I could not get it under control! Finally, a close friend recommended I try Kiehl’s products. Their skin care line is made using naturally-derived ingredients to provide healthy skin essentials for healthier, younger looking skin. I chose the Healthy Skin Starter Kit because it allowed me to sample all of Kiehl’s best-sellers and choose which products work for me. After just one week of using the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, my face dramatically cleared up. I also really love the  Creamy Under Eye Treatment ; it works miracles. I highly recommend these products if you or someone you know is trying to achiever or maintain healthier looking skin.

Loving Tan Self-Tanning Mousse

As my natural summer tan started to fade, I began searching for a self-tanner that gave me a natural-looking glow and was long-lasting. Because skin cancer runs in my family, tanning beds are not an option and I have to mystic tan if I want to achieve a bronzed glow. I have tried my fair share of self tanners and nothing compares to Loving Tan! Many self-tanners I tried left me with streaky legs or looking like an oompa lumpa (no thank you) but with Loving Tan I achieved the perfect, natural olive brown tone I was searching for. The ingredients are naturally-derived and hydrating, so your tan is natural, streak-free, and long lasting.  For my skin tone, I use the 2HR Express Dark Mousse ; my tan develops within minutes and you can rinse off after two hours! I also recommend purchasing the Deluxe Applicator Mitt so you can be sure to achieve a streak-free, blended tan every time.

Lauren’s Fall Favorites

Chantecaille Nano Gold Energizing Eye Serum

If you’re like Lauren and live a busy lifestyle, this is the product for you! Working long hours and a lack of sleep can actually decrease skin pH levels and can make your face appear less youthful. It can also create those lovely dark under eye circles that are a pain to cover up! Unfortunately, for the busy-bees in the world, sometimes a full 8 hours of snooze time is not realistic. If you need help restoring your youthful glow, Lauren highly recommends this product! This eye serum is specifically designed to erase signs of fatigue and aging. And, it’s easy to use! Simply smooth the serum over a clean eye area each morning and night.

NARS Velvet Lip Guide

We are absolutely loving the bold lip trend. From bright reds to dark purples, bold lips are a fun way to express your attitude. Lauren recommends the  NARS Velvet Lip Guide  because it is great quality and it offers many color options for all skin types. Lauren’s favorite shade is Unspeakable, a rich berry, because it compliments a fall wardrobe.


When it comes to hair, some days can be a blessing and other days can be a total disaster. As much as I would love to be Beyonce and get my hair blown out each morning, I have to accept the sad truth I am a post-grad, partially poor twentysomething and paying my rent is already a struggle. That being said, I believe it is important to appear polished and look like I somewhat have my life together.  Thankfully, Erin’s favorite hair products are a great, inexpensive way to help me (& the rest of us) achieve a good hair day.

QUAI Wave Spray

I think everyone can agree it is extremely difficult to achieve the perfect “beach wave” look. On one hand, you can end up looking like Suzy Q with super tight ringlets OR your hair ends up looking like a frizzy, untamed mess. After testing out many hair products, Erin recommends the QUAI Wave Spray  for giving your hair an effortless, natural wave.

Oribe Travel Hair Kit

For someone who travels a ton, this Travel Hair Kit is Erin’s go-to; it’s super easy to pack and the shampoo and conditioner is ultra-gentle and leaves hair feeling light weight and healthier. The products are color and keratin treatment safe, and they provide UV protection.
