hellllooo to all and happy humpday ! only 2 days till the weekend…only 2 days until i can get a good nights rest. luckily for me, and for all you followers like me that survive off minimal sleep and countless vanilla lattes, makeup has granted us with the power to disguise our disgraceful sleeping habits. here’s the scoop on some of my new favorite products that help me look fresh faced and ready to take on the day.
1. urban decay … “all nighter long-lasting makeup setting spray”
i swear by this stuff. it keeps your makeup looking fresh all day and all night. only nit-picky complaint is that i wish it came in an aerosol can for a more misty application.
2. beautyblender … “the original beautyblender”
this makeup sponge is by far the best beauty purchase i’ve ever made. ever. i’ve started calling it my little pink sponge of joy because using it actually brings me joy. my make up for ever hd invisible foundation looks completely seamless when applied with the beautyblender…compared to the somewhat chalky, dried out look i got when i used my hands or a foundation brush. overall, a total game changer.
3. tarte … “clean slate poreless 12-hr perfecting primer”
once again, tarte knocks it out of the park. it doesn’t get better than knowing you’re shmearing all natural ingredients on your face and having it work too. this primer keeps my combination skin virtually oil free all day and somehow it doesn’t make me break out…i’m not complaining, that’s for sure!
4. benefit cosmetics … “ooh la lift”
ok, i’ll just start off by saying that i LOVE benefit cosmetics. i know, i know, you’re not supposed to read a book by it’s cover, or in this case, trust makeup that has pretty packaging, but benefit has yet to let me down. so let’s get something straight: this is not, i repeat, not, a concealer. it’s an under eye brightener. for me, this lil baby works magic…think abracadabra and boom you got nine hours of sleep with your head resting on a satin pillow case. paired with my fav tinted moisturizer this gives me that dewy, all natural, fresh faced look.
