Lately I have been leaning towards a more natural look, skin that actually looks like skin, natural looking eyebrows, thick eyelashes and a “your lips but better” lip. I have finally found products that help me to achieve that look.
Glossier Balm dot com in Rose
I love Glossier’s Balm dot com, I have every single one. I love that the rose adds a slight sheen and a barely there tint.
Glossier Generation G
Generation G is amazing. It give the look of a stained lip that is so beautiful. I read that they came up with the idea because they loved the look of lipstick that had been wiped away. Like is one of my favorites, its a beautiful light pink.
Beautycounter Lip Sheer
When I want a creamy option I go for Beautycounter’s lip sheers. Petal is a beautiful everyday very wearable color. Over the holidays I would mix Plum and Currant together to get more of a night time look.
Bobby Brown Smokey Eye Mascara
I think I received this sample from a recent Sephora order, but I will definitely be buying the full size. This mascara does not clump or flake. I goes on beautifully and while wearing it one of my friends asked if I had done something to my lashes.
Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler
I always use an eyelash curler. It opens the eye and makes you look more awake.
Glossier Boy Brow in Blond
Clearly I have a thing for Glossier! Their boy brow does not disappoint. I like that I can quickly throw it on as I run out the door and look a little more polished. Or if I have more time I will put it over my brow pencil.
bareMinerals Frame & define in Universal light
Out of all the eyebrow pencils that I have tried this is by far my favorite. The pencil itself is thin but not so thin that it will easily break, like others I have tried. It is easy to use and looks natural if you use short quick strokes over your brows.
Becca Backlight Priming Filter
I love this primer, it creates a gorgeous glow to the skin. I put this on after my moisturizer and before my foundation.
Estee Lauder Double wear
As of right now this is my Holy grail foundation that I found because my mom bought the wrong color for herself. It is a light to medium coverage foundation that is build able. This foundation is so natural looking and my skin actually looks like skin. I wear 2C3 Fresco.
bareMinerals Sheer Sun
I started using this bronzer over the summer and I don’t think I will ever go back. I love that this bronzer is a serum, it blends beautifully and gives a nice warmth to the face.
Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder
Finally I do a light dusting of this powder all over my face. It sets my makeup and gives an airbrushed look to the skin.
