Hey guys! I’m so thankful it is Friday and I’m sure you all are as well! I’m ready for a relaxing weekend ahead. Sometimes it is nice to have those weekends where you have absolutely nothing planned so you can just play it by ear and figure things out as you go, or do nothing at all and just hang out at home. Today’s post is a little different as I am incorporating some make-up products that I am loving at the moment. These definitely aren’t all of the products I use, but they’re items that I typically use on a daily basis. Products are described below in the order of the pictures above.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer: I finally was able to purchase this item recently as it is ALWAYS sold out everywhere! They finally had one that was a shade that I could use. I really love the coverage it provides and I will even use just this at times if I’m not feeling like wearing a full-face of foundation. This is definitely a must have!
Estee Lauder Double-Wear Foundation: This is a foundation that I have used for the past 4-5 years and still have yet to find something better. I will say it is definitely medium-full coverage so if you don’t like that type of coverage you probably won’t like this foundation. However, it is the only foundation I have worn so far that covers as well as it does and truly lasts all day.
Wet n Wild Contouring Palette Contour (Dulce De Leche): I recently purchased this item as I read great reviews on it so I thought I would give it a shot. The main reason I wanted to try it out was because I had read that it is very similar to the shade of the Hoola Bronzer by benefit and that is my all-time favorite bronzer. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with the color from Wet n Wild. It is very similar and does not give an orange tone. I use the lighter side first to set my foundation then I will use the darker side to bronze and contour a bit.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer: As I mentioned above, this is my favorite bronzer of all-time. It is such a good bronzed color that doesn’t give off an orange tint so it is perfect for any skin-tone. I also like that it is matte and does not have any shimmer to it. The product and quality are killer and how can you not love the cute little box it comes in?! This stuff really does last forever too. I think I’ve had this particular one for over a year now and there is still a decent amount left. You NEED to try this if you haven’t before, you will be hooked!
Sonia Kashuk Tinted Brow Gel: This eyebrow gel is one that I picked up at Target a couple of weeks back as Rimmel quit stocking my usual go-to in stores near me. I like the gels that have more of an ashy tone versus the red tones so I have been super happy with it so far. Some reviews didn’t like the ashy color so if you do like more red tones than you probably wouldn’t be into this color, but if you’re like me and like the ashy tones then you should definitely check it out. It is a killer price at Target as well! I also like the color because I feel like both blondes and brunettes could use it since it is a very good in between color.
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara: I have used this mascara for years and still love it. To be honest, I have tried many high-end mascaras and I still always come back to this one. I typically like to wear waterproof so I found that with this one it truly does stay on and it doesn’t have any fallout during the day at all.
Wet n Wild Coverall Primer: I don’t have a picture with this one because to be completely honest, I don’t always wear primer. It’s not that I don’t like it, I just feel like it’s something I forget about sometimes. I know, call me crazy, but I feel like my main concern is always to make sure my skin is nice and moisturized before I apply my make-up so sometimes I forget about it! However, I will say, this Wet n Wild one has been one that I have been most happy with out of the various that I have tried. It is very moisturizing and does not make me oily throughout the day like some have in the past.
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this post today. Like I said, I am hoping to incorporate more items like this every once in a while to let you know what I am using and liking. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
