So, I know it has been a minute, I apologize for the delay in posts. I said in my first blog post that life can get crazy and that’s exactly what happened. I recently moved back in with my parents which I haven’t done in four years (that seems crazy to say) but here I am and I’m so excited to see what’s in store for us. Now that I have my room how I want it, I am ready to dive into my blog 100%, so thank you for being patient.
Let’s get straight to it, what girl doesn’t love makeup? I have rounded up my favorite beauty products to share. I am an Ulta shopper through and through so all my products come from there.
I’ll start off by saying I am not particular to just a certain brand, I like to dip my toes in all sorts of brands.
Do you use a face primer? I always have one in my drawer but sometimes forget to put it on.. lol. But, when I do remember I use the POREfessional from Benefit. It helps minimize the look of pores and also helps with redness. Thank goodness.
First off, foundation.. I like to have full coverage so I have been using Tarte Amazonian Clay Full coverage for about a year now and have never been let down. I use fairly light neutral and can get away with using it year round. I squeeze a droplet of foundation onto my wet sponge and dap it all over my face. Next, I like to apply a loose powder over my liquid foundation. Bare Minerals has an awesome loose powder I think I’ve used since high school. For application I just use a buffering brush.
Onto the next, contour.. there are so many options for bronzer buuuut y’all, I found a 3 in 1 pallet from NYX that makes contouring easy. The best part is it’s only $12 and lasts me a good while. I have used both fair and light just depending on how dark I want my contour to be. And can we just talk about shape tape real quick! Seriously I love this stuff. It is perfect to hide those tired eyes or any redness. Also works great as a primer for your eyelid before shadow! Love love love 🙂
Okay so, I have a secret I want to share. My favorite Morphe pallet is on sale for $15 at Ulta until the 29th. $15 say whaat for 35 different eyeshadow colors. That’s craziness, they are originally $23 so sang it will you can! This pallet is the 350 Nature Glow. I actually have the 350S which is the exact same but shimmer where as this one is not.
Onto mascara, my mom always asks me “do you have fake lashes on?” but no girls I just use Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes and seriously my lashes become so voluminous. Also I do love to curl my lashes right before applying mascara. I used the Tarteist before Lights, Camera, Lashes and found the same result. Now that the Tarteist tube is pretty much empty I just used it after I apply Lights, Camera, Lashes to get out any clumps. My go to’s for sure!
So I used to never fill in my brows but once I started I couldn’t stop. Luckily I have a pretty good brow to begin with so all I do is line it with the NYX micro brow pencil in the color chocolate and fill in any holes with a Tarte eyeshadow called heartbreaker.
Now, don’t fall out of your chair but I have another secret 😉 My favorite Too Face Metallic Matte Lipstick is buy one get one FREE also at Ulta until the 29th. I have been loving the Too Faced Melted matte Child Star but I’m excited to use these matte-tallic lips because they add just a little bit more shine! The application is pretty liquidy but dries fast and stays most of the day without another application. Can’t beat that.
That is pretty much a wrap on my go to products on the day to day basis. The last thing I’ll do is spray the Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray if I’m really feeling crazy but I forget about that a lot of the times LOL..
Linked above is everything I talked about, I will swear by these products. I hope you like them too! If you already are using any of these or going to try them out let me know what you think. 🙂
Also, I’m getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow so share your hacks to a speedy recovery if you have any!
