We all have those days when we get up and have multiple things to accomplish. My mondays are presumably workout class, grocery and errand running , and loads of laundry. I really don’t feel like moving around in a face full of makeup, so I have a quick five minute makeup application that will leave you feeling put together.
First find a great tinted moisturizer or foundation primer. My favorite is Laura Mercier foundation primer. It’s the best. It gives your skin clarity and gives it great coverage. If you are using this , in no way do you need heavy foundation. Apply this evenly with a small sponge applicator.
Next find a great illuminator. These are great with giving your skin a bit of radiance. Apply this to the tip of your nose, and on the inner corners of your eyes. Make sure you don’t apply too much to the tip of your nose. You will glow too much.
Lastly, find your favorite mascara. Mine is the Benefit super curling lash mascara. It instantly gives your lashes fullness and thickness. Make sure you use your lash roller before applying your mascara.
This 5 minute routine is all you need to get your days moving and feel and look great while doing it!
Hi ladies !
Makeup is an important aspect in many of our lives. It can be somewhat stressful when trying to find the perfect shade to match our skin tone, or buying a lipstick that we can totally fall in love with.
One huge aspect of applying makeup is the brushes we use to apply it with. There are many brush sets out there that are horrible quality. The minute you apply makeup, it seems some of the bristles fall out and end up on your cheek. Total turnoff right? I’ve had many brands that I’ve used, and some I’ve fallen in love with, and others I wouldn’t pay a dollar for. It comes down to this- You get what you pay for. Like anything else, paying more is the best option.
My favorite brushes that I absolutely love is Mac cosmetic brushes. I can’t tell you how much I adore these brushes. They are versatile, and made of great quality. Yes they are on the higher side, but in the long run, you will be happier with them. The bristles are amazing and soft, and the best part is they can be cleaned very easy. The other brushes that are a bit less expensive , but amazing are the Sonia Kashuk brushes. These are carried at target, and really come in some cute designs. The Kabuki brush is my all time favorite. Once again the bristles are soft, and do not fall out over time. These are also prefect for a cute little Christmas stocking stuffer.
Making sure you buy the better brushes is always important, but taking care of them is just as important. Refusing to clean brushes calls for more breakouts , and debris and germs that are carried onto your brushes. You want to keep them washed and cleaned after every use. I use a great Sephora brush cleaner. It is simply sprayed on and dried. It can turn your brushes into feeling brand new. Make the brushes count when shopping for makeup. It’s one of the most important tools that can make a difference in your investment.
I always love sharing with you some of my favorite monthly beauty products that I try out. I’ve tried so many , and I want to give you a heads up on what I think are some amazing beauty products. If you are one that needs a change, or is looking to replace a product already with a better one, I’m here to help.
I get products sent to me all the time, and that’s one of the things I love about blogging. I can try and tell, and it helps all of you the next time you step into a Sephora. One item that I really love is the Korres bath gel in Fig. It smells amazing , and is the perfect scent for fall. The minute you open the bottle, the aroma is divine. The next product that I love and will forever use is my Charlotte Tilbury Mascara. I love mascara and this is one of the finer ones I’ve used. It really wraps the lash, and gives it such a great curl. It’s best to curl your lashes before using, and make sure to start at the bottom of the lash to get the best effect. It’s truly phenomenal.The last product that I think every single girl should have is the Laura Mercier skin brightening powder. Wow does it make your skin pop. It’s very important that you use it correctly to get the best effect from it. One thing you do not want to do is use too much. It takes very little, or your skin will look cakey and thick. That’s a look you do not want. Well there are my favorites. These products are truly amazing, and for the price of each of them , you are getting your money’s worth. It’s best to put forth the money to get the best quality.
