September is finally here! I’m excited for several reasons, but one I had to share with you is the ’21 Days of Beauty’ sale at Ulta Beauty. Starting Sept. 6, you can save on several Ulta Beauty items in stores and online. I’ve highlighted four of my favorite products below, including how they’re part of my regular beauty routine and when you can catch them on sale this month!

Philosophy Purity Cleanser (Reg. $24 – Will be $15 on Sept. 6)

When it comes to my skin cleanser, I use an approach that’s similar to my hair regimen. I consistently mix up the product I’m using to keep my skin (and hair) from getting too used to any one treatment. The Philosophy Purity Cleanser is a recent addition, but it’s a really nice gentle cleanser to use in my days off of exfoliating, and I prefer to use it in the morning as an optional step. I don’t always wash my face in the morning because my skin tends to dry out when I do, but this cleanser has a beautiful fresh scent that wakes me up and also keeps my skin soft without any extra moisturizers. I use a small penny-sized portion for my whole face.

bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primers (50% off – Sept. 6)

This foundation primer is one I’ve been using religiously ever since I was first introduced to bareMinerals’ powder foundation about seven years ago! I used this on my wedding day and nearly every day since. It was that key ingredient for me to help my foundation (whether powder or liquid) go on evenly and stay even throughout the day. If you have issues with your makeup building up in your pores (maybe on your nose or chin), you need a good primer to even out the surface of your skin before you apply your makeup. I love this primer because it’s velvety smooth, but doesn’t feel oily, and works well with my skin’s natural oils to keep my foundation looking fresh.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (Reg. $22 – Will be $11 on Sept. 7)

Okay, I have never had to do to much maintaining of my eyebrows, other than a few tweezes here and there, but I have recently been conscious of just how much your eyebrows help frame and enhance your face. Sometimes I use the remnants on my eyeshadow brush (rather than an actual brow pencil) to fill in the blonder hairs on the outer edges of my eyebrows to better frame my face. I think the clear gel is key because it allows you to color match your eyebrow hairs with whatever other tools you like, then the gel is like the hairspray that keeps everything in place. The texture takes a little getting used to, but it doesn’t gob or flake when it dries.

Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream (Reg. $22 – Will be $11 on Sept. 9)

I love a good lipstick and nude colors for fall are especially appealing right now. As someone with lighter features, it’s sometimes tough to find a true nude shade that actually compliments my skin tone without making me look washed out. I love this Too Faced Lip Cream because it goes on like a lip conditioner (if you prefer gloss over lipstick, you’ll love it!) and keeps your lips smooth and soft, rather than dry and matte like some lipsticks. The color is a gorgeous peachy nude and adds a nice glow, regardless of skin tone.

August was the three-year anniversary of starting my blog! Wow. I have grown and learned a ton about myself. I remember in the beginning, I could hardly contain the excitement of figuring it all out. The creativity of it all was what got me up and going every day. I felt like I was out to discover myself and share it with the world.

People often ask what the meaning is behind my blog name, Little Miss Fearless. This is one of my favorite questions to answer because it’s a conscious reminder for me to stop and think about why I started, where I’ve been since then, and where I want to go from here. One of the biggest motivators when starting my blog was the quest for greater self-confidence. To be the girl who doesn’t apologize for who she is, no matter the approval or disapproval from others.

Although, I don’t feel I’ve arrived at my ideal self (I’m sure I’ll live the rest of my life redefining what that even is), I can say I am at peace with my shortcomings and imperfections. Maybe I owe that all to my blog, maybe it’s a combination of things I’ve experienced in the past three years. Either way, I am thankful for what this community has taught me, and for the support from those who have cheered me on along the way.

Thank you, so much, for reading.

SHOP THE LOOK

tee: the laundry room via carbon38 c/o | leggings: teeki via carbon38 c/o | shoes: nike {similar} | fitbit

Leggings are my go-to attire for working out, so when I find a pair that not only fits well, but has a unique print, I HAVE to have them. These ‘Love the elephant’ leggings at Carbon38 caught my eye at first because of the stripes and florals, but I didn’t realize until I looked closer that there’s also an elephant print on the sides! It spoke to my inner wannabe yogi and that makes me want to go buy a cool new anklet, too. The #ootd tee added the perfect balance to these leggings, and even though I work out more in tanks than tees, I love having tees around for layering in the fall months ahead.

Be sure to check out my favorites from last post and browse the different brands and styles at Carbon38.com. I am certain it will become one of those sites you check regularly for cool trends in workout gear. I have them bookmarked in my browser already.

Have a great weekend!
