That is right my little LouLou’s its time to chat about makeup, yet again. I have had several questions recently about what skin care/ makeup products I use. So here goes nothing! Hopefully you will find something helpful, and in turn I have some questions for you beauties!
I swear by the Mary Kay skin care line. I have used it for probably almost 3 or 4 years now. luckily I am blessed with pretty normal, low maintenance skin, so I am not sure how this stacks up with more specific skin issues. Don’t ask me to sell the stuff, but darn it I will buy it from you. My favorite? The microdermabrasion kit. Its heavenly. For reals.
After I do my little daily regimen, I start with Too Faced Primed and Poreless primer. It’s soo silky and I really feel like it helps my makeup stay put. I mean this chic works long days… and I can’t be having half ass my makeup by happy hour.
I typically wear foundation every day. I honestly, probably don’t need to-but I feel so pale in the winter months that I deem it absolutely necessary. Plus it just gives me such an even base. In the summer I will forgo the foundation, because it gets like 500 degrees and humid in Kentucky, and point blank sucks for a gal’s makeup.
This is my FAVORITE foundation. It is light, but so so even. Beige 400
Next, I use Mac Studio Fix pressed powder. Takes me back to high school prom’s for some reason, but this stuff is legit. I wear it a lot of times without the foundation, because it is that good. I promise, you will love.
Insert chorus of angels. This next item is literally my favorite makeup product. NARS blush. in super orgasm. My friend Ashley got me hooked on it a few years ago and I haven’t looked back since.
Yep, you know you want it toooo! It is the perfect color, such a natural flush, with a hint of sparkle sparkle.
I always always use an eye primer. This just happens to be the one I have, I like it but I honestly haven’t tried any others, so you may have a suggestion for me. I just must use an eye primer, if I don’t I feel like my eye makeup is gone by lunch.
I love naked lunch, by MAC as a neutral, all over, base color. It’s fantastic.
This next eye shadow is a recent find of mine, whilst I was perusing the Walgreens isles during a Kendall Jackson Chardonnay stop. I was looking for a high pigment eye shadow like my sis has. Hers always stays on so well, and I like the richness of the color. Low and behold I found this little baby.
in Shady. (where my shady ladies at!) 😉 you know who you are!
After I use all three of the above colors, I dust on some sparkle shine! I got a ton of these MAC loose pigments sometime this year. They are great because you can use them for anything, anywhere you want some shine and pizzaz! I use as a highlighter mainly.
I have used Mac eyeliner in Teddy for years, but I am completely open to suggestions. I am just kinda so so about it. But I want an eyeliner that I love as much as my NARS blush! My sis does her eyeliner with a brush and a high pigment powder, and it looks awesome, but I just don’t have that time and patience for an everyday look.
I’ve told y’all about this stuff before, its my favorite. Loreal Beauty Tubes Mascara in blackest black. I have thiiiin leeeetle eyelashes and this stuff is magical. You might not like it though, it takes some getting use to. But I have mastered the wand.
Final step, lip gloss! I love these Too Faced “Comfort Plump” lip glosses. they have some tingle plumping agents but not like WOW my mouth is on fire.
However- sometimes I LIKE the wow my mouth is on fire look. In which case I turn to Vickie, the queen of sexy. This lip plumper is tha bomb. Loves it. Chrissy and I discovered it years ago during a Christmas sale I believe.
And just for fun, here are some pics I found where I am wearing all of my ‘everyday’ look if you will, from above 🙂
And that is it chics! Nothing too exciting. Remember, I love bargains and love LOVE finding my makeup products for less! So if you have secrets, share ’em!
Also don’t forget to let me know if you have an eyeliner that I have been living far to long without!
