Beauty Favorites

Happy Hump Day beauties!! I wanted to thank everyone for their sweet comments on my photos here on the blog and on Instagram! I've been asked a few times what makeup I use so I decided to share with you some of my favorite products :) I do LOVE makeup and I try many different products but recently I've been hooked on a few.
 
 
Usually during the week I go for a more clean look consisting of BB Cream and/or foundation, blush, mascara, and lipstick. These 5 items are my go-to every day!
 
  1. I LOVE this foundation. I started wearing PhotoReady over a year ago and I haven't looked back! I've tried mineral makeup and other liquid foundations before but none gave me the coverage and dewy look that this one does. I loooove it. Now, there aren't many colors to choose from (the "catch") so I do mix two colors. Natural Beige and Golden Brown are my girls ;) I use the lighter color under my eyes and then mix the two for the rest of my face. Easy peasy.
  2. I'm sure you've all heard of BB Cream by now. I swear every one makes one now a days. Those of you that aren't familiar with BB Cream, it's basically a tinted moisturizer. It evens tones, hydrates, protects...all that good stuff. It's perfect to wear alone (especially for those who are blessed with flawless skin) or under foundation. If I'm having a good skin day I use this as my "foundation". I am almost done with my 1st tube of Medium Deep and I'm defiantly purchasing more. Garnier also makes an anti-aging  BB Cream ;) I think I'll try that next!
  3. Now sometimes us girls need some extra coverage and that's where concealer comes in. I just bought this PhotoReady concealer and I must say that I do like it. It comes in only 3 colors (boo) and I have the middle color. I do like it for under the eyes. I apply it softly with my finger or with a concealer brush :)
  4. This blush is major!!! It's Margin by MAC Cosmetics. I used to (and occasionally still do) use Nars "Orgasm" blush but since I tried this one I'm addicted. It gives you such a great glow. The color is like a pinkish bronze and it's perfect for year round. Defiantly one of my all time favorites!!
  5. Last by not least, mascara :) I change mascaras more than I change...never mind. Lets just say I'm always looking for the next best thing. This Colossal Volum' Express in pretty good and it is my go-to when I accidently buy a crappy one. If you have a fav mascara plllease let me know!
Products 1, 2, 3, and 5 can be purchased at any drugstore, Target, or Walmart. I prefer Walmart because they're cheaper ;) Number 4 can be purchased anywhere Mac Cosmetics are sold. I hope you try these products out and please share your favorites!

XO

  3. I love mascara. My fave is Maybelline Great Lash in Very Black. Tried and true, and with the new brush it helps catch those small lashes. I have multiple high end mascaras. I even bought Dior Show that everyone raves about and I still think Maybelline Great Lash is the best. And it is under $10.
