I don’t claim to be an expert of any kind when it comes to cosmetics, but I have found some items that love to use… I wanted to share a little bit of my routine with you guys, in case you’re in the market to try something new! I know for myself, I love to change brands and have variety- so this is just simply what I love right now.
I like to use glass jars and shelves to store my products- I used to just throw everything in a makeup bag but it ended up ruining my brushes and really this is prettier to look at anyway : )
Finding a good skincare line will make your skin radiant – something that makeup can’t always accomplish. I love Fresh. It’s not the most affordable line but I was lucky enough to get it as a gift from my mom : ) Their Black Tea products are my favorite. Other skincare lines that I’ve used and really like: Murad, Boscia, Bobbie Brown, Korres, and Aveda.
A few brands that are getting a lot of hype that I plan to try soon: Clarins and L’occitane
Not makeup related, but my hair has never been as smooth as when I started using this Pureology leave-in conditioner and their shampoo. Love, love it!
My favorite foundations and concealers:
Foundation: Chanel Perfection Lumiēre (very sheer)
Under Eye Concealer: Bobbie Brown
Blush: Bobbie Brown
Mascara: Trish McEvoy
One of my biggest mascara revelations was this Trish McEvoy Warm Water Removal. I have a hard time keeping brightness under my eyes and always felt like my mascara left black under them. It kind of always made me feel like a zombie! BUT warm water removal mascara peels off in “tubes”- never smudging under your eyes. If you struggle with dark circles under your eyes, this could be a game changer! Clinique also makes a more affordable one that I really like.
Nars Satin Lip pencils go on so smooth and last a long time. It’s kind of a mix between Chapstick and lipstick. I like to lightly fill in my eyebrows with a brush and shadow. I love a bold, dramatic eyebrow. Wish mine were thicker!
