I wanted to round up some of the makeup products I’ve been using for the past several weeks and share a few notes about each of them! I like creating these resources if you’re looking for something new to add to your beauty routine!
First, I always start with these 3 products!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.5 – I would describe this as a medium coverage foundation that could build up to full coverage. It feels fantastic on my skin, blends SEAMLESSLY, and I love that you can see through it a bit so it’s not too much for a casual makeup day. There are a wide range of shades available, so I initially ordered 3 shades online, tried them on at home, and returned the two that didn’t match.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – A seriously awesome eyeshadow primer that makes sure your eyeshadow or liner will. not. budge. It’s intense, and I find it works best if I dust a little bit of powder over top of the primer to take away some of the sticking power.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – Delivers volume and fullness while still feeling very soft. It can sometimes be a little on the clumpy side, but that’s why I love using this tool to comb through my lashes after applying.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – A long time favorite, and always the first mascara I apply to my lashes to help hold the little curl I’m able to achieve with a lash curler.
Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Peche – A favorite for spring and I’m sure I’ll wear it all summer as well. Loved the brightness of it, and it feels great on the lips!
Too Faced Natural Eyes Eyeshadow Palette – They discontinued the original version of this palette and launched a new one that looks even prettier!
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer – Initially I didn’t like this concealer but I’ve tried it a few more times and it’s growing on me. A little goes a LONG way!
Benefit The Blush Bunch Bronzer & Blush Set (Gold Rush, Dandelion (?) and Hoola)
Marc Jacobs Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner – This is the perfect soft liner for my lash line because it doesn’t take away any visual length from my lashes. It adds the right amount of depth without being too strong or heavy. I like to apply it and then use a short blending brush to soften the line.
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Taupe – I couldn’t live without this brow powder. I don’t use any wax, just the powder itself! It looks so natural and matches my brows really well.
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe – This tiny pencil is great for adding extra definition to my brows, after I apply the powder. Perfect for filling in sparse areas too!
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder – I always set my under eye concealer with this powder. It’s translucent but somehow brightens my under eye area and keeps my concealer from creasing!
