Fashion Nova Pink Satin Dress It’s a steal at less than $60
I’ve been diving into beauty lately as #1 I’m aging and #2 since I’m sent products to try so often, I wanted to share monthly what I’m really loving and these aren’t paid sponsorships but products I truly use. And not only that, I’ve used them for a full month or even longer. I wanted to keep it short and simple and easy to check out/shop. Remember, beauty products are like clothes, it is perfectly ok to try something out and return it if you don’t like it. Don’t be shy about it! Beauty companies want you to love their products. A loyal customer is the best customer.
This was my look last Saturday – the foundation, powder, setting spray, and red lipstick color is all linked below.
A great foundation/powder is everything. I don’t have great skin; it’s uneven, unbalanced, sunspots, acne scars and having combination skin makes it hard to find something that has great coverage, light, smooth, matches my color, and stays on for the day. I was recommended Giorgio Armani by a makeup artist (here in Chicago, Jen) and fell in love. It does feel like silk to the skin, lasts all day and does not look cakey. It is pricier, but you get what you pay for. Truly amazing and the best I’ve ever used (and I have used a lot of brands from Chanel to Nars, etc.)
I use this for spot treatments for acne and I absolutely LOVE IT. I keep it on at night when I go to bed whenever I break out, and lately I’ve had more hormonal breakouts. It has salicylic and glycolic acids which help clear out my skin and I can’t recommend it enough if you break out as I do. I don’t use it all over the face, but purely for spot treatment.
Extra gentle, soy cleanser is perfect for my breakout skin. Smells so nice with a gel-like texture, it is soothing and cleans my skin leaving it dewy and soft. It does not feel stripped or dry at all.
Make Up Forever Satin Finish Lipstick – My all-time favorite red is shade C403. This is the red lipstick I wear ALL the time. With a great orangey tint, it’s the PERFECT summer red.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick – For a nude I love the shade Pillowtalk. It’s their most popular shade and the color looks great on so many people.
#5 SETTING SPRAY:
This stuff is AMAZING!! I just started using it and got my friend hooked on it as well (I gave her my bottle at the end of the trip). My make up is set all day or night and dries within seconds after spray. I didn’t believe that these worked and Urban Decay proved me wrong. I mean if you read the reviews online you can see why this is an all-time favorite of every beauty blogger. My foundation/powder looks set for hours and I’ve even had people ask me after 8 hours if I just did my make up. Truly, one of my favorite products.
So what you do you think? These 5 items are my must-haves in my beauty make up bag.
