Pretty much on a daily basis I’m always being asked what kind of lipstick I’m wearing; what kind of mascara I’m wearing and what kind of foundation I use. Lately, I’ve also been asked about what I use to do my eyebrows. So today I’m going to be sharing a few of my favorite go-to-makeup must haves with you along with answering those 3 questions.
When it comes to foundation, I like to have a nice clean, even skin tone and a light finish and something that’s definitely oil-free. That is why I use Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15 as my foundation. For a matte finish I use their stay-matte sheer pressed powder. You can pick them up at your local Ulta Beauty, Macy’s, Nordstrom or shop them here. On days that I have a shoot, I use Bobbi Brown Retouching Powder to get a nice airbrushed finish.
I have several different lipsticks that I wear. Bold matte reds are my signature style. I really love NYX matte lipsticks because not only are they very affordable but you can almost find them anywhere. The other kind of lipsticks I mostly use are Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks (here) and Dose Of Colors matte lipsticks (here).
L’Oréal Voluminous Miss Manga in extra black is my absolute most favorite affordable mascara. It adds so much definition to my eyes and make my lashes appear longer. You can pick it up at your local drugstore like CVS and you can find it at your local Target. Maybelline is also another drug store brand that I use. I love the Rocket and Lash Sensational. The trick is to use the tip of the brush when applying mascara, especially when getting the bottom lashes. The results are so much better. If you don’t mind spending a little more, I suggest getting Too faced “Better Than Sex” It’s one of my top 3 favorite mascaras ever. You can pick it up at Ulta Beauty or shop it directly here.
Nowadays, eyebrows seems to be the number one talked about thing in the beauty industry. I’ve definitely become more involved in making sure that my eyebrows speak for themselves. I use none other than Anastasia Beverly Hills dip-brow pomade and brow defining brush. She’s the Queen of eye-brows and I wouldn’t recommend any other brow products. You can shop them directly here or you can pick it up at Sephora or Ulta Beauty, my go-to make-up spots. My contouring method is simple. I use Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer (pick it up at the drug store, Wal-Mart or Target) and Anastasia Beverly Hills Contouring kit(shop it here or you can pick it up at your local Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstrom or Ulta Beauty). Let me know if you guys liked or tried anything I suggested. I’ll share more tips and make-up hauls with you guys soon. Gotta go now. Baby Isabella just woke up from her nap. Enjoy your weekend babies.
