This has been my primer of choice for some time now. I have dry skin and find this nice and hydrating to apply under my foundation. I usually opt for the full size product but my current tube came in the beautyblender x Too Faced Beauty Sleep Set that I was curious to try after seeing it on the Sephora website- It comes with a beauty blender and setting spray which I am anxious to try. I think this set is a nice way to sample the product and get a full sized beauty blender for an affordable price – I will say though if you are in it for the primer, it is a very small size and you should opt for the original product.
I was recently on the hunt for a new foundation and stumbled across this baby on Sephora. This is a newly released foundation that promises to be hydrating and lightweight. I have heard these promises before from foundations and been disappointed with their cakey appearance after 8-12 hours of wear. But I’m pleased to say this is not the case with this Ilia foundation!
I bought this in the shade Tavarua, which is a great match for my light skin. I would say the coverage of this foundation is light – medium but is very build-able. It has a dewy finish and leaves my skin looking very natural. This is a new Fav of mine for sure!
I have been using this concealer for many years now and it is my absolute favorite. I buy this in the lightest shade Chantilly and put this under my eyes to make them nice and bright! It has great coverage and this tube goes a long way!
Because the foundation I use has a dewy finish, I like to set my foundation with a little powder to reduce shine and ensure my foundation lasts all day. I have been using this powder for about 3 years now and love it! It is translucent and leaves skin looking natural. The packaging is great, it is big enough to fit a brush in and allows you to control the amount of powder you pick up. This powder goes a long way and I usually only need to repurchase this once a year!
This product is so convenient and easy to use! I am currently on my second stick and have been using it almost everyday since my first application. A couple swipes on the cheeks, one on your forehead (just below your hairline), and one under the chin is all it takes. Then it easily blends out with a contour brush.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in the color Dollface
When it comes to blushes, Tarte is my favorite brand! They have so many cute colors and their formulation is so pigmented. I own a number of their blushes including their limited edition blush bazaar palette. This color Dollface has been my recent go to. It’s a nice light pink shade perfect for spring and summer!
About a year ago I was chatting with my friend about the makeup we’d been loving recently and she told me about this product. At the time, I was just using a brown eye shadow powder and brush to fill in my brows. But after her rave review of this product, I decided to give it a try. Thank God I did! I absolutely LOVE this product. I have since gone through multiple refills of this and have no plans of switching to another brow product anytime soon. It has the twistable product stick on one end and a brush on the other. It applies very easily and looks fantastic! I use the shade taupe and it blends perfectly with my eyebrows.
When it comes to mascara, I’ve got to say I am not that picky. I find most mascaras are pretty similar. But this one has been my go to recently and love the length it gives to my lashes and that it does not clump!
This is the only setting spray I’ve ever used, but it’s great! It sets my makeup in place and helps keep it looking fresh all day long. It’s very fast drying and under $10 at most drugstores!
NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the color Sandstorm
NYX liquid lipsticks are my favorite! They are fast drying, come in great colors, and are fairly inexpensive. I’ve tried a handful of their colors, but Sandstorm is my favorite everyday color. It’s a deep nude/brown color that defines the lips but is not too bold!
