At the beginning of every season I like to evaluate and reassess my makeup bag for items that might have to be put away (or thrown away – remember always check your makeup shelf life!) for the new shift in weather. I tend to make the necessary replacements and sometimes along the way I also pick up new to me beauty products and gadgets that come highly recommend. Today I thought I’d do the same and share some of the new additions to my cosmetic bag.
bareMinerals BARESKIN Liquid Foundation – This past summer bareMinerals debuted their first ever liquid foundations advertised as the first of its kind. No silicon, no oils, no parabens, no a lot of the stuff that tends to clog your pours and hurt your skin. A ton of blogger did reviews and convinced me that this stuff was liquid gold so I bought myself a tub along with the perfecting face brush that is sold separately and highly recommended. Truth time: I already have rather oily skin and using the bareMinerals BARESKIN liquid foundation only added additional shine to my face. Not what I wanted at all so I waited it out for cooler temps. Now that I’m not in the desert heat I have to say that my thoughts on the foundation have changed. I love how light weight it is and that that you can play customize coverage. So summer no, fall yes!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit – So this is actually a product that I have been using for a couple of years now. Keira of A Pretty Penny recommended it and I’ve never looked back. I recently realized that I hadn’t included the kit in any of my beauty posts so it had to make the cut this time around. This season I am dubbing it the Season of the Brows! I have been working on growing mine out and creating a more defined, dramatic, thick brow and this product is helping me look more fierce;)
bareMinerals Bare Radiance – A product that creates natural luminous skin? Sign me up! It’s a great powder to dust on after all of your makeup has been applied to help things set and a great product to apply after filling in brows!
Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Push-Up Liner – a gel liner pen that lasts, doesn’t smudge, and creates some maaajor drama. So easy to apply and creates an accurate angled line that doesn’t budge. I’m still trying to master the push-up thingy without overdoing it but I would highly recommend this product!
Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller – I watched a Jaclyn Hill makeup tutorial on Youtube (do it now!) and she used this to help minimize and hide her dark circles and it worked like magic so I bought it that afternoon. No joke it really works. It works as an illuminator that somehow reflects light. Add a little concealer and your set!
