I get a lot of questions on what I use for my daily makeup. It has taken years to figure out what works best for me. I am really happy with what I have been using and have no complaints. It is all about asking questions and knowing how your face condition is and what you want to achieve. Below I have attached to each section where I bough these products. I am going to ahead of time apologize for the long post! If you have any questions please comment. Xo
#1 Lorac Contour
I really like this contour kit it is a powder and not a paste so for me it doesn’t clog my pores. I taught myself have to contour with youtube videos it truly is the simplest thing to do. My only complain with this product is the powder is very messy and I feel like it waste a lot of it. I bought mine online at Nordstrom.
#2 Marc Jacobs Foundation
I am crazy for this foundation it is truly heaven sent. I my last blog post I talk a lot more about this product so I won’t talk to much on this except to say if you need all over coverage that last all day and doesn’t clog your pores and doesn’t break you out this product is for you. They do make one for people that don’t have sensitive skin.
#3 Bright Future Color Corrector Under Eye (Promotes Brightness)
I recently purchased this at Sephora when I asked a makeup artist there what they suggest would be best to go with It Cosmetics ByeBye Under Eye. I am a makeup artist as well so when ever I learn something new I just have to try it. I can say by far this is brilliant. I use the It Cosmetic ByeBye Under eye after this which I will post where I got it in a few mins. This color corrector is amazing with the pink tint helps cover the darkness that comes through with foundation. I have to say I am happy I don’t look so tired.
#4 It Cosmetics Brow Power Eyebrow Pencil
This has been one of the most asked questions I get “Wow your brows look amazing what do you do?” Well here is the secret! I am so happy with product and the funniest part is I didn’t buy it I receive it in my Ipsy bag a year ago! I love It Cosmetics so much their products are very good quality. I love how I can use this product and it doesn’t smear off and last all day.
#5 Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
I had no idea about this product until a few months ago. I love how it locks in my foundation and helps it stay all day long with out it getting oily! I always use this after my foundation and let it set for 3 mins and while I wait I do my eyebrows.
#6 Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette
I have gone through a few eyeshadows but never found a simple matte eyeshadow. I love more of a smokey eye so when this palette came out I was the first to jump on board. They do have a few that aren’t matte in this palette but I use those ones for a night time look. My first indication that I would love this eyeshadow was the pigmentation. A lot of eyeshadows don’t hold on your eyelids all day and with me being a hairdresser also I need my makeup look to stay all day. I always test the eyeshadow on my had to see if I rub it does it just disappear or does it slowly fade away. Hands down I love Urban Decay Eyeshadows definitely worth the price!
#7 Bobbie Brown Camel Eyeshadow
A long with #6 I love this eyeshadow as well it gives such a natural look with the smokey eye and blends amazing. I sometimes just wear this eyeshadow and do a liquid eyeliner for a even more classy look. In the mornings sometimes I need quick and fast and this eyeshadow is another top favorite. It will be hard for me to switch to another brand if Bobbie Brown ever stops selling this color!!! (aka I would cry)
#8 Sephora Bright Future Color Correctors (Neutralizes Redness)
I have sometimes some red spots or ache flare ups so I use this product to help reduce the redness. I put it on first then after my eyeshadow is on I use my foundation and just use my Beauty Blender to apply.
#9 Too Faced Flush Long Lasting 16 Hour Blush
I dont have much to say about this product except I love it adding a little color to my cheeks they have several colors depending on what you like brightness wise. It does last 16 hours like it says which is nice. I love the heart shaped of it too!
#10 Revlon Ultimate All in One Mascara
If you are looking for a more a mascara that doesn’t make your lashes look like you have false lashes but still stand out this one is for you! I go between this one and the Too Faced Better Then Sex Mascara I sometimes like my lashes to look more extravagant so thats when I would use that one. All depends on the occasion. Also they are very different in price the Revlon is just $8.99 at your local drug store & Too Faced one is $23.00.
#11 It Cosmetic Bye Bye Under Eye
I love this under eye concealer that I use with #3 listed above. I apply this on top of that one to hide my under eye dark circles. What I also like this has a anti-aging that hides wrinkles and doesn’t crease! Which helps with getting older. I hear a lot of people complain about their dark circles and I am telling you this works wonders!!!
#12 Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eyeliner
I have been through too many eyeliners!!! I do not like how they always smear and end up under my eye. If you have this issue look no further! This eyeliner is no joke and doesn’t come off which for me and maybe not everyone I like. I always disliked looking in the mirror with raccoon eyes how embarrassed I used to feel when out or with my hair clients. I highly suggest this for everyone.
