Springtime Glam

Doesn’t makeup always look better when someone else does it for you? Okay, not always. I just wanted to share an eye shadow look that my super-talented hair dresser and friend did for me the other day. I will insert her Youtube channel here whenever she decides to start filming again!

20170423_14140520170423_141357She created a cut-crease eye shadow look using her Too Faced Natural Love makeup palette.

Can we talk about how beautiful the packaging is?? I love Too Faced cosmetics for their amazing products and cute and girly packaging.

 

20170423_14143120170423_141501She also gave me an amazing highlight using the Too Faced Love Light highlighter, which I am obsessed with and just might need to purchase soon! And lastly, she set my makeup with this setting spray from Skindinavia.

 

My Everyday Makeup Products

TGIF! It is almost the weekend! (Yay!)

I’m going to share with you the makeup products I use daily for work – no crazy smokey eye shadow, or winged liner though. I save the full glam for when I’m off duty! I always want to be sure my makeup is work appropriate, but most importantly still me. For those that know me, my makeup routine usually takes me 10-15 minutes false lashes included (really!)! Here it goes:

Brows: Anastasia of Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ebony

I can’t stress enough the importance of brows. They either make or break a look. I have a love and hate relationship with mine; I will explain in a later blog if anyone is interested (haha). The Anastasia Brow Wiz helps me fill in any gaps and makes my brows look more polished.

Face: I prime my face with the primer from Chanel. I like the scent of this product; usually I can’t wear any scented products because I have sensitive skin, but I have no problem with this one. I also like that this primer has an SPF of 40.

The Chanel foundation is not a full coverage foundation, however the coverage is build-able. I like how light weight this feels. Doesn’t look or feel heavy, or like they’re clogging your pores!

Eyes: Chanel Eye Liner pencil in Noir and Too Faced Roller Lash Mascara.  I am old school and love the regular eye liner pencil that you still have to sharpen. This one is long lasting and gets the job done! I wouldn’t know what to do if they discontinued it (ha, seriously!).  I’ve been using it for 10 years! Too Faced Mascara is awesome as well as waterproof.

Lips: I always use my Hello Kitty for Soft Lips lip balm before applying any lipstick or lip gloss. I wear one of these everyday for work: Lippy Stix shade in Cookie by Colorpop Cosmetics (which is great quality, especially for the price!) or Mariah Carey collection for MAC shade in McIzzle. Love that these two lipsticks do not dry out my lips like most lipsticks tend to do. I tend to always stick to nude hues but sometimes if I have a day off and am feeling adventurous, I rock the brighter shades.

Unfortunately Mariah Carey for MAC is no longer available but I will suggest other dupes that I have tried that are similar:

  • Tom Ford Beauty Blush Nude $50
  • MAC Wood Rose $17
  • Urban Decay Earthling $17

Blush and Bronzer: MAC Cosmetics blush in Style. Mariah Carey for MAC bronzer. I love that the bronzer has a cartoon picture of her face. Unfortunately it goes away after several usages.
