Favorite Local Beauty Product: Generation Happy Skin Love Your Lips Intense Color Butter Balm SPF 15 in Bliss
"[This balm is] minty, smooth, and adds the right amount of color to your lips. Also, it's the PERFECT nude lippie for me. It's crazy good and I was so crazy about it that it's probably the only lippie I was able to finish under two months because of how obsessed I was with [it]! And of course, Happy Skin is always so gentle on your lips and skin so you won' worry about any side-effects."

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Ever Bilena Advance Brow Kit
"Believe me when I say that I've sworn by this product since I started learning how to do my makeup! The palette comes in three shades + a wax which I love because it lessens what I need to bring when I get ready on the go."

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Sunnies Face Fluffmatte Lipstick in Nudist
"I love a good nude lip, and Sunnies Face's Nudist is my go-to always. I love the velvety texture, the perfect color, the packaging, and the fact that it’s multipurpose and I can use it on my eyes, cheeks, and lips. If I had to pick only one make up product to use on my face daily, this would be it."

Favorite Local Beauty Products: QuickFX Clean Collection Toner and Serum
"Best local toner and serum for me that actually work! Makes my skin soft and moisturized! It is gentle but effective."

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Issy & Co. Cream Tint
"I have really dry lips so normal tints just never worked for me; these end up super splotchy, hard to work with, and tend to sit on lines of my lips. So when I tried Issy & Co.'s cream tint, it was a game-changer. It lasts super long, super creamy, and the color payoff is insane."

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Teviant Pencil Eyeliner in Doyenne
"I love using this on my lower lash line because it instantly brightens my eyes and gives me that fresh look! It's been part of my makeup routine, it [makes such a] difference."

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Sunnies Face Lip Dip in Femmebot
"Not a fan of wearing any lipstick but Lip Dip [is] an exception. With its light formula and smooth application, it's like I'm not wearing any at all. Plus it's flexible [enough] that I can wear it on my lids, cheeks, and lips. Such a money saver!"

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Issy and Co. Eyeliner Duo
"My latest discovery and favorite product from a local brand would be Issy and Co.'s eyeliner duo. I wasn’t planning on trying it because I've been using the same brand for five years now (Heroine Make, that I usually hoard when I travel, but since that's not an option these days I was determined to find something local!) I was so shocked and pleased when I used it, it's so smooth and easy to apply! New fave for sure!"

Favorite Local Beauty Product: Happy Skin On the Glow Instant Complexion Perfector
"I'm usually on-the-go and I tend to keep [my makeup] natural, and this product is something I'd use from day to night. I love how handy it is and it's also lightweight on the skin yet it [gives] enough coverage for my eyebags and dark spots."

Favorite Local Beauty Product: BLK Bridal Sparkle Gloss in Diamond
"The BLK Bridal Diamond Sparkle Gloss has been my favorite local product [lately]. It says a lot that this is my top pick because even though I am wearing a mask when I go out, I always make sure to pop this in my purse because it is so hydrating and comfortable on my lips. The finish is a natural pink that is still quite sheer. It's non-sticky, and it feels really smooth. I love this gloss and nothing will stop me from wearing it!"
