Current Beauty Faves
Happy hump day loves! I'm excited to be sharing all of my beauty faves with you this week!
Recently, I've realized how much I love having a set beauty routine, so I do typically use the same products on a daily basis! However, I also have had much more interest in my skin care and using makeup products that work best with my skin type. I've been trying multiple different products each week, but these are my favorite products that I used on a daily basis!
First things first, if you don't own Mario Badescu's Facial Spray, you are missing out on life. They have 3 different types that do the same job, but I use the one with rosewater because I love the smell and rosewater is AMAZING for your skin. They also have lavender and cucumber, which I've been thinking about purchasing them all, hehe! These are facial sprays that you can mist on your face/neck at any time of the day, with or without makeup, for a refreshing & hydrating pick me up. I keep it in my purse at all times!!
Next, primer. I use Stila One Step Correct. This was actually one of the first primer's I tried and I've never felt the need to switch. I love it so much because it really helps with color correcting, and I struggle with redness & a tiny bit of discoloration. So it really evens out my skin tone before applying my foundation. It's also very light and pretty moisturizing, which I love!
Foundation..... THE DEATH OF ME. I don't do much with my eyes, so foundation is SO IMPORTANT TO ME. The foundation I wear totally depends on what I'm doing that day. On any normal day, I like to wear Tarte Amazonion Clay Foundation. Its medium-full coverage, but I love it because you can build it up however you want. I usually start with a thin layer, and if I want a little bit more coverage, I'll just apply a little bit more. You're in control! I'm also obsessed with the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation. I use this for when I'm shooting, or going to a nice dinner, basically when I wanna look FAB. It's full coverage and matte, so you definitely don't want to apply too much, but it just looks so flawless! I'm obsessed!
I've always struggled with finding a good concealer because I struggle with dark circles, but once I tried the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, I stopped looking. GUYS, THIS IS A MUST HAVE. It is so popular right now, so many people rave about it. I apply it with a damp beauty blender and it just gives such a full coverage look but without looking cakey. SO FAB.
My favorite product for powder right now is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Translucent Powder. I pretty much only use translucent powders because I put so much effort into my foundation, and I just feel like using a darker powder is just too much. This one is my favorite mainly because its matte and lasts all day, but I've also used the one from Maybelline and that works great too!
Bronzer..... my love. I wasn't able to include it above, but I use the KOKO KOLLECTION face palette from Kylie Kosmetics! I love this palette! I use the bronzer, blush, & highlighter on a daily basis. I also use the HOOLA Bronzer from Benefit Cosmetics. This one gives me more of a summery look, and I like to wear it on my eyes as well for a little pop! Just requires a little bit more blending than the KOKO palette. I adore them both the same :)
Anastasia Brow Wiz is a given. I always have and probably always will use this brow pencil! After filling in my eyebrows, I've been going in with the Benefit High Prow pencil. This comes in matte & shimmer, I have them both. I apply it under my eyebrows and it just gives a little pop. Like I mentioned above, I don't do much with my eyes. So this is a necessity!
Last but not least, my new Anastasia Highlighter Palette. I'M. IN. ACTUAL. LOVE. This palette is so fun and screams moonchild. As you can see, they aren't your typical colors. So fun! I haven't experimented with this palette that much yet, but I'm sure you will hear more about it in my future posts!
As far as mascara goes, I've used the same mascara and probably always will! I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. It's super affordable and just always gives my eyelashes the length and volume that I want, with such little effort. But what I love most, is how easy it is to remove in the shower. I have pulled so many of my eyelashes out trying to remove mascara lol. For lips, I like to use the matte lip liners from NYX. Again, super affordable! I love a matte lip, so I've also used the lip kits from Kylie Kosmetics, and I swear by 'em!
