In the last few months, I’ve added a few new beauty products that have quickly become favorites, so I thought today, I’d share just what beauty items have instantly become holy grail products in my morning repertoire.
MY CURRENT FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS:
Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara in Glossy Black: I ADORE this mascara. I have used a LOT of mascaras in my lifetime. It was pretty much the first makeup item I used (after chapstick, of course), and I sometimes feel like I’ve tried them all. I had been rotating through a handful of mascaras, each with a different purpose, but I wasn’t finding an everyday mascara that I absolutely adored. That is, until now. Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara is an incredible multi-tasker that curls, separates, lengthens and dramatizes lashes without EVER looking clumpy. It looks like your lashes, but better. Way, way better.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Oil-Free Poreless Skin-Perfecting Serum Primer: I get sent these amazing mailers from IT Cosmetics, and I’ve become a fast convert to their incredible beauty and skincare products. This primer does EXACTLY what it says it does: it’s a weightless, oil-free primer that blurs away pores and provides a smooth, matte finish for flawless makeup application. I love it.
Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette: I can’t take a single ounce of credit for this one. Apparently, when my Dad asked my sister (who knows everything about makeup) what to buy for “the girls” (me, my mom, and sis), she immediately told him to order three of these Huda Eyeshadow Palettes. Truth be told, when it comes to makeup, I’m kind of boring. I stand by my neutral tones, matte powders, black eye liners, and the occasional red lip (if I’m really feeling adventurous.) But this palette, though it totally intimidated me at first, with it’s deeply pigmented mattes and show-stopping shimmers, is the BOMB-dot-com. I find myself reaching for it every.single.day. and it works for both day and night. PRO TIP (a.k.a., my sister told me to do it): use your finger when applying the shimmers/glitters. Seriously, these eyeshadows are LIFE CHANGING.
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation: This is my holy grail powder. It makes you look flawless, smooth, and totally matte, without looking cake-y or too powdery (which is totally a thing!) and I just love it. (Tip: Have a Mac expert choose your shade; they have a whole lot of options, and they’ll find your perfect match.)
Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Longwear High Cover Foundation: When my beloved Luminous Silk foundation was retired by the brand, I honestly thought I might cry. I had never found a foundation I loved more, and had been using that one for YEARS. Thankfully, the amazing folks at Giorgio Armani convinced me that I’d love their new Power Fabric Longwear High Cover Foundation, and they were totally right. While it does provide a bit more coverage than my Luminous Silk did, I don’t mind it at all. Their promise, “[a] liquid foundation that perfects full coverage with a velvet matte, lightweight second-skin finish.” So far, so good.
Burberry Beauty Fresh Glow Highlighter: I’ve always been a bit intimidated by highlighter – not wanting to look too much like a fairy – but this highlighter is incredible. The lightweight and illuminating powder gives you a subtle glow that makes you look all bright and gorgeous; plus, the delicate powder is set with an intricate lace pattern design, so it’s pretty to use each and every morning.
IT Cosmetics Makeup Brushes: I have been steadily collecting IT Cosmetics makeup brushes because they’re absolutely amazing. The quality is top notch, they don’t shed, and of course, they are oh-so pretty.
