I’ve shared my everyday makeup routine, and a few skin care lifesavers but I’m constantly changing things up and trying new things to better equip myself with right set of products that’ll allow me to put my best face forward. Around this time of the year I like to review the contents of my makeup bag and hit the refresh button. I don’t usually have time to really indulge in self-care, so when I find a product that is gold you better believe I’m going to share my intel! So today I figured I’d offer my insights on a few products that have been in constant rotation – from primers (for both my face and my lashes!) to the perfect pore-blurring powder. If you’ve tried any of these products share what you love, or loath, about them in the comments below!
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer – For under $10 this primer does wonders for my skin! Smoothes and mattifies my skin so that the remainder of my makeup application is effortless. I highly recommend!
L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Primer Mascara – I can’t recommend this product enough! You swipe on your lashes just before you apply your mascara and BAM, major drama! It pairs with any mascara, not just this one, and creates amazing volume while still being lightweight.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple – This has by far become not just my favorite lipstick but my favorite shade of red! Pairs perfectly with my olive skin tone and the formula is comfortable on the lips. A standout product, for sure.
Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer – This stuff is pure magic! I was really hoping it didn’t live up to the hype because $24 for concealer is a little ridiculous but it’s as good as it’s advertised. Full coverage concealer for mom’s everywhere. FYI – only available at Ulta.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro-Powder – Gah, this leaves the skin looking perfect! Blurs pores and has a silky finish, so your skin appears flawless. Also mattifies without looking cakey.
Previse HydoMilk Hydrating Lotion – I received this product in my Sept. 2015 BOXYCHARM and applied every so often but have recently rediscovered it and I’m in love. Very moisturizing and leaves the skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I love to apply this at night after washing my face.
