The obvious winner this month was the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone (both pressed and liquid). The only Becca product I had tried prior to this was the highlighter in Champagne Pop, which I thought was my one and only (seriously, read my glowing review). That shade is still just as beautiful as ever, but I'm falling head over heels for Moonstone. Dabbing a bit of the liquid highlighter onto your cheeks, nose, and cupid's bow leaves a gorgeous, natural sheen, while the powder form leaves the perfect amount of shimmer and shine. For my skin tone, the pale gold works well in the winter, while Champagne Pop could be more of a summer shade.
Something that I haven't mentioned much in the past is my love for literature. I want to give my recommendations more, starting with my 2017 reading bucketlist. Milk and Honey, by Rupi Kaur, is one of the most interesting works I've read in quite some time (and I'm an English Lit major). Composed of short poems that discuss different aspects of relationships and womanhood, Kaur speaks to anyone who has ever loved, been loved, hurt, been hurt, cried, hugged, kissed, dreamed. I would recommend this to everyone with a heart.
Lastly, I have to mention a few fashion favorites. I found the Urban Outfitters Ecote Guinevere Dress on sale for $6, and the Old Navy V-Neck Dress for $10. Obviously, that balances out the Michael by Michael Kors Piper Sling that I am so in love with. Finding cute shoes that fit small-sized feet is a feat, so I am happy to call these mine.
January may have been a bummer of a month, but I am still confident that 2017 will be a brilliant year.
