My Current Makeup Favorites

November 10, 2014

Hey!

Today I wanted to share with you my current makeup favorites! These are products that I would go back and re-purchase over and over again because they work so beautifully. I’ve always preferred to used quality makeup as it tends to sit better on my skin.

Step 1: Foundation or Tinted Moisturizer:

Stila is one of my favorite makeup ranges. This CC cream is what I’m currently using as my first step. I LOVE it <3

 Step 2: Concealer

YSL Touche Eclat is a cult classic. It doubles as a highlighter/concealer, so it really does an excellent job at concealing dark circles.

Step 3: Contour

I contour using the Anastasia Contour Palette with the Nars “ITA” brush. I personally find the “ITA” brush to be the ideal contouring brush.  I love the palette because it allows you to customize your own color. Contouring can be tricky, and tend to look muddy if it isn’t the right shade.

Step 4: Eyes

I’ve been switching up my mascara for years. I love Lancome, Tarte, and Loreal Voluminious mascara. I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday, but when I do, I love to use the “In The Light” eye shadow palette by Stila. It has more neutral shades which I prefer since I have  a difficult eye shape to work with.

 Step 5: Blush & Highlight

I’ve been using Nars “Orgasm” blush for YEARS!! It is BY FAR my favorite blush. I recently purchased the Nars “Albatross” highlighter, and I’m equally impressed. It makes my skin look extra glowy and dewy, like I just had a fresh facial.

 Step 6: Lips

Stila Lip Glazes are THE BEST!! They come in many beautiful colors, taste amazing, and really plump the lips.

Step 7: Fragrance

For fragrance, I like to keep it very fresh and clean. Amazing Grace by Philosophy is my daily fragrance. It smells absolutely beautiful, and very clean.

    I’m right there with you on Amazing Grace and Stila Lip Glaze. My sister and I adore the lip glaze in BANANA. The perfect nude.

    Great variety, although for me personally the YSL Touche Eclat isn’t enough to cover up my dark circles, but I love it as a highlight.

    My holy grail foundation is definately i.d bare minerals foundation powder . Been using it since I was 16! (Holy crap, that’s ten years!). There’s just nothing better. However the bare minerals brushes SUCK and I only use the elizabeth arden kabuki. That plus + i.d bare minerals equals perfect skin! I also love that i.d provides such a large range of colors. It’s usually impossible for me to find the right shade sinche I’m pretty much white like a ghost. But their lightest shade is a perfect match!

    As for the rest of my makeup, it’s a work in progress to find those absolute favorites. I’d say that L’oreal telescopic mascara is my favorite but as for blush, bronzers, highlight, lip products etc, I don’t know yet.
    But it’s fun to experiment 🙂

    My go to-perfume is definately flowerbomb.
    I also love “child” by susan d owens, which I actually think you would love! It’s a little hard to get your hands on but def worth it.

    Beautiful variety of makeup !
    Personnally, I’m more into green makeup with Ilia sheer tinted cream, RMS un-cover up, nude eye shadow Cloud Nine from Kjaer Weis, Embrace’s blush and also from Kjaer Weiss and RMS mascara.
    I really want to try Tarte products due to your multiple topics on.

    Thanks to be so inspiring !

    I love Lancôme Effacernes waterproof concealer. I’ve been skipping foundation lately. For blush, I love Tarte in Exposed. Eyes- Bobbi Brown long wear pencil in Mahogany. Lips… Usually just lip balm! 🙂 That Stila palette looks nice.
