It’s Friday babes, cheers to the weekend!
The other day I was out at Sephora + Ulta (total shocker!) & as I was browsing, deciding what I wanted to pick up + try , I noticed a few things that I have been restocking for about a year now & can’t see myself giving up anytime soon. So I thought I’d share with you my hands down must have makeup products.
Diamonds + makeup are a girls best friend, right? I think so.
1. SHANGHAI SPICE || 2. CHAMPAGNE POP || 3. TOO FACED ‘BORN THIS WAY’ || 4. TINTED PRIMER || 5. MATTE BRONZER || 6. FIX + || 7. KISS KISS LIP SCRUB || 8. MASTER CONCEAL || 9. PINCH ME BLUSH || 10. NARS ILLUMINATOR || 12. 35N || 13. NYX BROW ||
Can I tell you that I’ve been madly in love with Shanghai Spice MAC lippie for like the past 3 years! I always keep 2 or 3 in stock. + Champagne POP makes you glow like the highlighter queen herself Jaclyn Hill, I remember when I first got my hands on this beauty when it was limited edition + a month later it shattered 😦 thank goodness, BECCA x JACLYN HILL made it a permanent cosmetic! Head over to Sephora to see their latest Champagne Family Collection + get your hands on it before it’s all sold out for good.
Before I discovered TOO FACED foundation, I swore I would never leave Makeup Forever Ultra HD, but I’ve been using ‘Born This Way’ religiously for the past year.
So I have like no eyelashes what so ever, but it’s okay because that’s what falsies are for! However, my bottom lashes still lacked vavavoom, but when I started using the BENEFIT tinted primer + then used a mascara top coat it’s like I magically gained eyelashes, oh the power of makeup.
What’s better then chocolate + gorg bronzer.. the 2 of them combined! I love the Soleil Matte Bronzer from TOO FACED it’s so pretty + good to use all over the face, to add some color, or even to contour + it smells like chocolate! I use the shade Chocolate & it’s a medium-deep shade. My favorite drug store products are from Maybelline + NYX, I love basically every concealer from Maybelline but the Master Conceal has to be my fav it’s full coverage with no cracking/creasing. From NYX I swear by their Micro Brow Pencil, It’s a great dupe for the ABH brow wiz but at half the price.
If you haven’t tried the MORPHE products + shadows you need to, like yesterday. Their shadows are so pigmented and long lasting, + they’re one of the most affordable inexpensive cosmetic line on the market. They have a great range of shadows + palettes, but my favorite one is their all matte 35N palette, it has the perfect range of matte warm shadows.
For every makeup routine two of the most important steps is priming your face for everything + when done applying everything to set it all in place, especially now during this hot humid summer. I’ve been loving the NYX skin serum + primer it does wonders for my skin + gives my face a smooth canvas to apply my makeup. + for setting everything, my all time favorite is the oldie but goodie MAC fix+ it’s so hydrating + sets everything perfectly.
What are some of your must have makeup products? Any recommendations to try?
I hope you all have a fun weekend, & my thoughts + prayers are with everyone whose been effected with any inhuman tragedy, may we come closer to world peace + regain our humanity. Smile, be happy + friendly, say sorry, laugh, + enjoy life.
Till next time dolls, stay chic!
