I talk about the makeup or skincare I’m trying out quite regularly on Instagram so be sure to follow along over there to say in the loop!
I’m working on a more comprehensive look at some foundations I’ve been loving recently but I’m waiting until I can speak normally and am over my sinus head cold disaster before I make more videos!
In the meantime. . .
Here is some of the makeup I’ve been loving lately. I change things up often, but on a recent trip out of town I only brought these things and was happy with my choices!
Nars Sheer Glow foundation – The first time I applied this foundation I thought it looked more like a full coverage than a buildable “sheer glow”. I *liked* the look but I was surprised at the result. Since using it a few more times I’ve learned that it truly is buildable, just like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. You can swipe on one pump with fingers and get a really natural finish or you can apply a bit more, perhaps using a brush, for a fuller coverage. It looks radiant on the skin and I really love how to wears and looks in photos!
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away concealer – This has been a go-to concealer for a few months now. It looks natural but covers and brightens with ease.
Milani Rose Powder blush in Blossomtime – I love the soft rosy pink of this blush and it has the nicest warm reflection to it on the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette – This is such a beautiful palette and a total splurge as well. I’m looking for another highlight and bronze/contour palette that is a bit more budget friendly but I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed with this one if you try it.
Milani Soft & Sultry palette – I found this palette at Ulta and was so pleased to see it was only $20. It’s a GREAT all around neutral palette that you can do so much with. The colors blend beautifully and it’s a good size for traveling too!
Anastasia Brow Perfect Brow Pencil – I use a handful of different eyebrow products but I always come back to Anastasia brow pencils.
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Demolition (dark brown) – My go-to eyeliner
Benefit Roller Lash mascara – I love this mascara. It holds the curl so well and leaves an inky finish without being TOO wet.
Clinique Bottom Lash mascara – Great for finding the smallest bottom lashes!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Petal – These are so easy to wear and you almost never need a mirror to apply them! I love Petal for a soft pink.
