Jan/Feb_BeautyFavorites_2015

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizers:

I use both the Nourishing Primer for my unsightly dry patches and the Smoothing Primer to fill in any pores, even out the texture of my skin, while also doing some oil control for my t-zone. I wont rant on about these primers because I’ve done a huge post on them (which you can find here) but all I have to say is these guys have revolutionized the way my makeup applies and lasts.

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and Mac Powder Puff:

My go to for setting my under eye concealer and the highlighted points on my face has go to be the LMSBP. This powder is so finely milled it never looks cakey, it adds luminosity, and prevents creasing.

The last month I’ve been obsessed with applying this (and all setting powders) with the Mac Powder Puff. It allows for the product to really sink into the skin without disturbing the foundation or the concealer.

LauraMercier_SecretBrighteningPowder_MacPowderPuffBenefit Hoola Bronzer:

This is a staple in my collection that I always come back to. It never fails as the perfect bronzing and contouring product. Its smooth in texture making it easy to blend and lasts for all day wear.

Benefit_HoolaBronzerHourglass Ambient Blush Palette:

This little palette is just so perfect. The colors are amazing and they give the most gorgeous lit from within glow on the cheeks. The formula is soft and finely milled for an easy and blendable application.

Hourglass_AmbiantLighting_Blush_PaletteMac Stone Lipliner, Limecrime Chinchilla Lipstick, Make Up For Ever Lab Shine:

Ive been really obsessed with wearing grey lipstick and been wearing these guys non stop. I start with Mac Stone Lip Liner and add Lime Crime Chinchilla Lipstick on top. To make it more wearable i’ll either top off with Make Up For Ever Lab Shine in S0 for a more nude version or Lab Shine in D2 for a more purple vibe.

May Favorites

Hey Guys,

Its that time of the month again…May Beauty Favorites.

May_Beauty_FavoritesSummer has finally hit Copenhagen so I’ve been wearing a little less makeup but I do have some staple favorites and a few new ones that I’m obsessed with and cant live without 😀 Lets just get in to it…

IMG_2799Now that the sun is shinning and I had a hot sunny Holiday in Dubai I’ve been Wearing Josie Maran Argan Moisturizing Serum Foundation. Its really great because adapts to your skin tone so it’s perfect for summer months and sunny holidays when your skin color changes. Its light wearing and really moisturizing and really great for those with dry skin and looking for a light coverage.

I’ve also been pairing it with my Mac Prep and Prime in Radiance as a highlight/concealer for my under eye area. It instantly gives my face the fresh brightness it needs early in the morning.

For my lips I’ve basically only been using my new Revlon Lip Butters, I got in my trade with Lola’s Charms, especially the shade in Sweet Tarte. Its the perfect, every day, easy to wear pink. Plus its super moisturizing and so comfortable to wear on the lips. I will have a review and swatches up soon on some of the shades I picked up in Dubai.

I’ve also been obsessed with OPI Which is Witch. I also got this one in my swap with Lola’s Charms. Its a super fun glitter top coat that looks good over any color to add a little glam to your nails.

May_Beauty_Favorites_PowderSurprise, Surprise, Benefit Hoola Bronzer and TheBalm Mary-Lou Minizer win again for most awesome awesomeness!!! You get what I mean, right? They are booth super pigmented, creamy and really perk up the complexion. I’ve also been reaching for my Tarte Amazonian Clay 12- Hour Blushes. I really love the texture of these bad boys. They really blend in so beautifully into the skin. I’ve been rocking the shade Dollface, It’s a really pretty dusty rose.

May_Beauty_Favorites_SigmaBrushesI recently posted on my instagram a little pre birthday haul for myself. One of the items was the Sigma Mrs. Bunny Collection Brush Set. OMG….AMA-ZING!!! All the brushes in the kit are amazing. Super soft and really versatile. But I’m really really enjoying the F40 Large Angled Contour brush for my blush and the F30 Large Powder brush for setting my make up or blending out contour and blush. I’m definitely interested in getting more. I’m heading to IMATS in London in just a few weeks so hopefully I can grab some there…otherwise I’m making a trip to Ulta when I’m in Cali later this summer.

LimeCrime_DAntoinette_PaletteAnd lastly I’ve really been gravitating towards my Lime Crime Palette D’Antoinette. I just love the ethereal and soft look the create…perfect for these lovely summer days.

Well those were my favorite babies of May. I would love to hear what your favorites are, so leave a comment below.
