KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! Can you guys believe it's the weekend before Thanksgiving?! Time has been flying by since we moved into our new home, and I'm miraculously keeping up with all of the PR samples and promos and photography. At KCL we've also passed 5K followers on Insta and have a huge giveaway featuring some of my favorite things...over $500 worth of faves (including this gorgeous red nail polish)! You can enter to win here >.

Next week's finds will be Black Friday deals, so there won't be the usual small shops featured, but that is to make way for my big Holiday Gift Guide that will be posted on Small Business Saturday! On today's finds, you get a sneak peek at one of the gift guide picks as well as some self-care bath and body goodies and some adorable ornaments to help you kick off your holiday decor. Enjoy!

The Baked Makeup Trend


You may have noticed these little domes of shimmering eye shadow suddenly popping up all over the beauty aisles. The "baked" makeup trend has spread to other beauty products like blush, bronzer, and even baked foundation. But what makes an eyeshadow or a bronzer compact "baked" exactly? It isn't just the shimmer or the beautifully marbleized compacts. Baked makeup products start out as liquids which are baked into solid powder. This is said to create a more blendable product that can be used wet or dry. I love the trend. I've always used makeup with a bit of shimmer, and I can say from experience that these baked products do in fact blend very well.

I really love the e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California pictured below. It's quiet similar to the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette but at a more affordable price. You can see a tutorial for that baked palette here >>


The baked eye shadows tend to be semi-sheer. That's what I love most about them. You can apply them lightly for a subtle touch of color and shine, but you can also swipe on multiple layers for a more colorful and glamorous look. It's the perfect makeup for day to evening.

For spring I just picked up the e.l.f. baked eyeshadow trio in  and will include it in a big Spring beauty giveaway! It's perfect to wear lightly for daytime then heavier for an evening out.


The shimmery bronzers are perfect if you're on the go. For everyday makeup or if I have very little time to make it out the door, I use a bronzer blush quad. I quickly sweep the blush and bronzer onto my cheeks, then I use the highlighter color under the brow bones and on the inner corners of the eyes. Then I use one of the blush shades on my lids and the brozer in the crease as a contouring color. Or if I'm in a major hurry, I swipe a small blush brush over the entire compact and quickly brush it over my cheeks and lids and finish off with some quick mascara.
