Hello loves!! Hope you guys are doing great and having a great week!! Today I want to talk about some of my favorite beauty products I have been loving this summer! This is not all of them because it would take me hours to talk about everything but I did narrow it down to some of the things I use the most!! All the links will be down below! Alright ladies.. let’s dive in!
Okay… Let’s start with primer! I use the backlight priming filter face primer. I also will mix it with the ever matte poreless priming profector which is my HOLY GRAIL primer. I love the combo of these two being mixed. I love the way this feels on my skin. It will blur all your lines and smooth out your skin. It makes my make up last all day and my foundation go on perfectly. It’s perfect it you are wanting a slight summer glow. I have combination skin and this works great on me!
Next up!! Let’s talk about foundation! I love me a good foundation. I will splurge on foundation because it is so important to have a good one when applying make up. I usually wear MAC studio fix fluid foundation and it is AUHMAZINGGGGG but this summer I have been loving the Teint Idole ultra long wear foundation. It’s very light weight on the face and goes on smooth! I like to wear this on my longer days at work. The ones where I’m working 9-10 hours or more because I know it’s going to last me all day and still have me looking just as good at the end of my shift as I did going into it. Does that make sense?…. Bare with me. lol. I worked 12 hours today and I’m feeling a little loopy! Bottom line this is the best long wearing foundation and did I mention it is full coverage? Yup. You need it!!
I really love a concealer that is going to fully cover up my dark circles under my eyes. The shape tape concealer is amazing!! I can’t really use anything else. It is very light weight. Not cakey at all and doesn’t crease. I use the color tan sand which is a little bit lighter color because I like to highlight under my eyes as well to brighten up my face a little bit.
The best setting powder is the Laura Mercier translucent powder! I set under my eyes with it and I will go back and set the places on my face that get oily during the day to prevent that from happening. The best way to use this is on a damp beauty blender. I feel like it helps the powder melt into my face even better than a powder brush. I use my damp beauty blender for everything!
The blush I have been loving is by Nars! It’s in the color seduction. It’s a deep burgundy and it looks beautiful on darker skin tones. I am all about blush because I love adding color to my face. I wear blush even on my days when I am doing just a more casual every day look.
The next thing I apply to my face is highlighter! Bobbi brown highlighter is probably the most expensive highlight I have bought. It is so worth it! It has so much pigmentation. I use the color bronze glow and it just makes your face light up. I apply it to my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose and sometimes on my cupid’s bow. Another highlighter I swear by is from the Carli Bybel pallet you can buy at Ulta and I got mine for $12!!
The eye shadow palettes I have been using are the three above. These palettes have great neutral colors! I love using these everyday. They are perfect for so many different looks! I also like to use these to create a dramatic smokey eye for date night or going out with my girls!
-Tarlelette toasted eyeshadow palette
-Anastasia modern renaissance eye shadow palette
-Morphe 9C jewel Crew eye shadow palette
Last couple things I have been loving is the Prep and Prime Fix Plus make up setting spray from MAC! This is one thing I cannot do my make up without. If I forget to set my face fore I leave for the day my make up won’t stay on as long or blend together like it is suppose to! This makes the make up have a beautiful finish. You can use it before you do your make up as a primer and you can spray it after you are done to seal it all in together.
Liquid lipsticks are a neccesity for me. Anastsaia Beverly Hills Liquid lipsticks are one of my favs this summer. I also reall enjoy the Tarte liquid lipsticks. The formulation of both of them are perfect. They stay on all day. Most of the time they don’t budge while I eat. They don’t flake off and I love the colors that they offer!! You guys definitely should give these a try. I am very picky about my lipsticks because I need them to last all day.
