I’m sure by now you’ve heard about the Beauty Blender, and for good reason. I use it every day to set my makeup. First I’ll brush my face with a light powder to reduce shininess, then I’ll use my cream foundation, followed by my contour palette. Then I’ll wet the Beauty Blender under the sink, squeeze out the excess water, and press it onto my face to set my makeup. It just feels so great on my skin in the morning! And my makeup lasts all day!
Contouring is also something you’ve probably heard of and thought, do I really need to? While I use this contour palette, all you really need is one bronzer and a light powder or highlighter that is lighter than your skin color. You can start with products at the drugstore to try it out then invest in more if you like it. I find that contouring adds shape and dimension to my face, I can bring out my eyes and minimize my nose. And I get to feel like an artist when I do my makeup! Seriously, it’s so fun for a girly girl like me.
This is my new favorite blush! I first tested the Orgasm color (because there was a freebie sample in a magazine I was reading), but after buying the palette and trying all of them, I’m not sure which one is my favorite! It depends on my mood.
The aforementioned one is a great everyday color because it is a bronzey pink, so it adds color and has a contour effect. Deep Throat is a bright pink that I use for summery colors with a bright lipstick, when I’m feeling extra girly. Luster and Desire are pretty similar and are great peachy-pink tones. I love, love LOVE the Albatross highlighting powder. I dab a small bit on the high part of each cheek for a polished look. Laguna is a go-to bronzer.
One of the best makeup brushes I’ve invested in is this one. It’s the perfect blending brush. It blends any type of makeup – cream, powder, etc. I use it after I have contoured to blend everything all together.
You may have seen my favorite lip color post, and all of the following lipsticks were on there! But these are the ones I’m wearing a lot right now.
The MAC lipstick in Taupe is one of my favorite fall transition colors. This product is my favorite liquid lipstick. The color is just gorgeous. I keep this mattelip crayon in my purse all the time and it lasts forever!
