this will probably be my only post about makeup products as i seldom change what i use. i had originally posted this on my personal instagram a couple weeks back but it got too wordy and i didn’t want to blow up my friends feed with this long drawn out caption [aren’t those so annoying?] so i decided to wait until i got the blog up & runnin. so here we are.
i don’t always do a full face but when i do i like to have the best products on me since i am so acne prone. 😦 mehhh.
1} kat von d lock-it foundation – you can find it in sephora here. *disclaimer: this is a FULL COVERAGE foundation so it is quite thick. i apply mine with the beauty blender that i run under some water before applying. you can also find this at sephora here.
2} sonia kashuk hidden agenda concealer palette – i have only been able to find this bad boy at target here. if you have seen this anywhere else please let me know! this is my favorite concealer, it hides all of those pesky little blemishes without looking to cakey.
3} smashbox bronze lights – i use this as my contour. i don’t contour kim k. style but i contour enough to give my chipmunk cheeks some definition. you can find this at sephora here.
4} maybelline fit me blush – i use medium mauve. i don’t like a real pinky cheek so this color is perfect. who says a cheap drugstore product isn’t good? not me!! i usually get mine from target here.
5} mac lipstick – okay y’all i am obsessed with the taupe color! i love love love it! it’s really hit or miss when you shop the mac store in nordys so it’s better to just order it online here.
6} yves saint laurent volume effet faux cils shocking – whew that’s a long one! but don’t let its long name sway you… it’s amazing. it turns my non-existent baby lashes into va-va-voom lashes! well worth the money. i also got this at nordstrom. find yours here.
7} anastasia brow powder duo – i am not a fan of using a pencil to “draw” on your eyebrows. mainly because it allows so much room for error… it’s not the 90’s anymore ladies. let’s get out of that chola look please. i already have pretty dark eyebrows but sometimes i need a little oomf and this is my go-to. you can get it in sephora or shop online here.
8} sephora collection long lasting kohl pencil – when i’m really trying to obtain that dramatic cat eye look i’ll use this guy. i don’t use eyeliner much so i don’t really need to splurge on a crazy expensive one. you can get it here.
9} mac pro longwear lip liner – well i have this in all of my lip colors even if they aren’t from mac. this stuff doesn’t bleed and keeps my lipstick in place! i love it! i got mine from nordstrom here.
10} urban decay naked basics – i have the other two palettes from urban but i really only use this one. it makes the best neutral smokey eye, which is great for the workplace. i got mine at ulta, get yours here.
alrighty folks, that about sums it up for what i use to make my face prettiful. i highly recommend all of these products! i have very embarrassing acne prone skin, and these aren’t irritating or harsh like some others. leave me a comment if you have any questions/concerns about any of these products!
