Recent Make-up Haul..

Friday, January 15, 2016

Hello loves and happy Friday!
I am so ready for the weekend. I have not been feeling my best this week and I am looking forward to getting some rest this weekend!

I have always been a lover of make-up. I grew up competing in dance and cheerleading, so make-up was around me constantly. By the age of 9, I could put on a full face and be ready for competition. The older I get, the more I am investing in higher-end products. Which honestly, can make all the difference in your make-up.

I wanted to share some great products I recently purchased and how much I love them!

Neutrogena Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes:
MY HOLY GRAIL. I use these every night to take my make-up off or just get any dirt off of my face before using my clarisonic. These babies really do get all the dirt off your face. I carry around the smaller pack in my purse, just in case!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
It is very important to keep your face moisturized. It helps prevent dry skin of course and keeps your skin looking fresh and healthy. I always apply moisturizer under my primers and foundation. This helps the make-up sit on the primer and moisturizer instead of seeping into your skin!

SmashBox Water Primer:
Not pictured above and I didn't realize until now.. Sorrryy.
Anyways, I have loved this primer so far. It feels just like your spraying water on your face and dries quickly. You can also use this after as a finishing spray! Highly recommend this!

ItCosmetics CC+ Cream & Foundation Brush:
My skin becomes a lot drier in the winter and I needed a full coverage foundation that wouldn't dry my face out anymore! This one has done the trick and I am loving it! The finish is flawless and gives your skin a nice healthy glow! Also, this foundation has SPF50+UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreen within it. Perfect for protecting your skin, which is VERY important! I decided to get the foundation brush that goes with this CC Cream. This was a little different for me because I love my beauty blender and use it for everything. However, I really like how the foundation applies with the brush!

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealor:
Hands down my favorite concealor. I love the consistency of the product and I never have a problem with it cracking or creasing! Blends very well. I wear the shade "Chantilly."

MAC Pro Longwear Concealor:
I have heard great things about this product! I have used it once so far, underneath my foundation and really loved the coverage. I purchased the shade "NC20"

Anastasia Beverly Hills BrowWiz:
Love, love, love. I have tried many types of powders and brow pencils and this has to be my favorite. There is a large color choice, which is great! The pencil is very easy to use and comes with a brush on the other side. This has made all the difference in my make-up routine. I am in the shade "soft brown."

I actually purchased this yesterday because I've been in need of some good blush toned eyeshadows. I went with a drug store one for now because there are so many higher-end palettes that I love and I honestly cannot decided which one I want. It's a hard decision guys. First world problems. Anyways, I swatched most of the shades when I got home and the pigmentation is beautiful! 

This is great for contouring. The bronzer has more of a grey tone which is what you need when contouring to create your shadows! Love this product!

This blush is the perfect pink and has just the right amount of shimmer! I am a big fan of MAC blushes!
I love me some highlight and this shade is gorgeous! I love very light and golden highlighters and this one is perfect! Highly recommend! 

I wanted a new fun bold lip and this purple shade was the winner! I love liquid matte lips! Only suggestion is to apply a moisturizer to your lips before applying! This helps with any cracking that may happen with matte lipsticks! I purchased the shade "Recollection."

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
I hope you enjoyed today's post! Have a fun and safe weekend!
