A Few of My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...

I never thought I'd be posting a makeup "favorites".

I was never a makeup girl. I was literally the worst female child any mother hoping for a dress up doll could possibly have. I preferred playing in the mud and competitive sports to getting my hair done and playing dress up. 

So I find it absolutely HILARIOUS that I love playing in in makeup as an adult. It started with a little bit of ill applied foundation and one color eyeshadow and now I'm addicted to a full face. It's been a bit of trial and error but I think I've found some things that I absolutely live for and I want to share them with you!

Foundation | Oily Girls rejoice! I have wasted so much money on high end foundations searching for full coverage. At the end of a full day my nose would look like an oil slick. Enter in the amazing Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless. It works wonders and the toffee shade matches my complexion perfectly!

Concealer | I don't know why I need this specific concealer but I DO. It makes no sense but it is the best concealer that I've used for my highlighting. It blends so smoothly and looks beautifully natural. For the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer I use the shade biscuit.

Highlight | For the days that I want a youthful glow, I use the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade of Rose Gold. It reflects just the right amount of light off of your face and is basically undetectable up close.

Lips | I am a full fledged lipstick fiend. It's a serious problem and I can't even tell you guys what my favorite is. I love low end and high end and I LIVE for a matte lip. My newest love are the matte lipsticks by Smashbox Cosmetics. They are absolutely everything: they stay put all day through eating and drinking AND the color stays as vibrant as when you first apply it.

Eyes | I'm fully upset that no one told me about the Lorac Pro Palette! When I say you get what you pay for... A full set of matte and glitter shadows is perfect for everyday and it may be the only full palette the average girl needs.

Bronzer | For days when I want a summery glow, I use my Iman Bronzer. Aside from the fact that this company was created by the beautiful and wonderful Iman, the products are QUALITY. This bronzer is perfection and I use it every time I do a "full face".

Until Next Time....

Beijos,
