I’ve never been a huge makeup girl. While I can kind of do my hair, makeup is something I just have no talent in. Or maybe it’s patience for? However, even though I may only put on eyeshadow once a month, there are a few staples I swear by when it comes to my beauty routine.
1- Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation– A local makeup artist, B Wilson actually turned me onto this product. Previously I had never even used a MUFE product. This however is a game changer. It’s fool proof, gives flawless coverage while making your skin glow but without the shine.
2- Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder– My skin leans towards the dry side and often times powders can make my skin look more dry and highlight the dead skin. This powder is super lightweight that it doesn’t cake on.
3- Benefit ka-BROW– I’ve been blessed with full brows but cursed with uneven ones. This brow gel is easy to apply, giving you all the control you need and it doesn’t rub off throughout the day like some others I’ve used in the past.
4- Kevin Aucoin Matte Lip Color– I love a gold lip color, the bolder the better! However, I hate the feeling of wearing lipstick, it feels sticky and unnatural. This product I was introduced to by Houppette Beauty and feels like I’m wearing nothing on my lip but gives a vibrant color.
5- Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs– Ever since a teenager I have loved perfume. I think it all started with the Britney Spears’ Fantasy scent (embarrassing). I’d like to think my sense of smell has evolved since then as now my signature is Daisy Dream.
What are your favorites when it comes to beauty?
Is it just me or is this the longest winter ever? And it’s only February! Luckily, when I was at AtlantaMart a few weeks ago I got a dose of spring with the a sneak peek of my favorite brand’s upcoming warm weather collections. Like this, from Duffield Lane.
When I stopped in the Duffield Lane booth and starting browsing through the resort and spring pieces I stopped when I came to this adorable dress. I mean scallops? Sold. Now just imagine I had a tan too and wasn’t pasty white. Trust me, you too will wear it all spring long.
