When the weather gets warmer, the blush gets brighter… I’m currently loving bright, easy spring makeup!
My current favorites include:
Milani Baked Blushes in Corallina (bright coral with a gold sheen) and Delizioso Pink (matte bright pink). Both of these blushes scream spring/summer. The Milani baked blushes are super pigmented and blend flawlessly. The shade Delizioso Pink is new and permanent!
Bare Minerals Original Foundation. I’ve been LOVING mineral makeup as of late and I have also tried the Tarte Airbrush Mineral Foundation but I find Bare Minerals to last longer on my skin without breaking up and getting oily. This gives a beautiful satin finish with a slight sheen and feels like you have absolutely nothing on. I was pretty surprised on how much coverage you can get out of it if you keep layering, even my roommate said it look liked I had a full coverage foundation on!
Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade. Now that it’s getting warmer my brows are melting off (sad face) so I love this for getting fierce brows all day. It doesnt budge and dries to more of a powder finish. I like to wipe the excess off on the lid before applying to my brows so it doesn’t look too crazy and intense.
Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. The 3D Fiber Lashes is sort of a like a top coat for your mascara. You apply the gel first over dry mascara and then apply the mascara tube with the fibers right after as the gel is still tacky. This is has been my go to the last month because I’m a false lashes girl and this gives me really full and long lashes without having to worry if i’m sweating my falsies off (ladies you feel me). What I like most about this product is that it doesn’t look crunchy and hard like layering on a bunch of mascara can do, the fibers keep your lashes looking soft and fluttery. You can buy it online here!
Hope you guys like these “current” favorite posts I hope to do more of them! :)
Try foundations like
- Garnier BB Cream for Combination/Oily Skin
- Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Spotless Foundation
- MAC Face & Body (water based foundation)
- NARS Sheer Matte or Sheer Glow (depending on your skin type)
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (light version is more light weight)
Or try mineral foundations! I’ve been LOVING the Original Bare Minerals Mineral Powder foundation lately. Feels so light weight, can get a good medium coverage and has this beautiful satin sheen that doesnt even look like powder. They have a matte formula for oily skin gals! They also have a new liquid mineral foundation which I have not tried yet :)
Stila makes a great pure white liquid liner in their famous Stay All Day Liquid Liner formula! They make many fun shades like white, mint, pastel blue, royal blue, etc :)
White eyeliner is great for a fun look or for a base for any other colors! You can apply any other shadow or liquid liner over it to help make the color pop.
You can make your own white eyeliner by scraping off some white eyeshadow and mixing the powder residue with water, eyedrops or vaseline like your own DIY gel/liquid liner :)
A brow gel will help a bit but not drastically, a tinted brow gel would be best because even if your brow powder fades your brow gel will still be there. You can also try using eyeshadow primer all over your brows then going in with brow powder so your brow powder has something to stick to. You can even try using a little bit of brow pencil under to act like a glue for the brow powder :)
However I’d recommend using a waterproof brow product! These tend to be a lot longer lasting and don’t fade at all. Great for the warmer weather coming up lasting through sweat, swimming, etc!
Anastasia Brow Pomade $18. This is extremely long lasting! My only complaint is that it can look a bit over done if you apply too much, it’ll take a few tries before leaning how to work with it. I like to wipe some off on the inside of the lid so very little is on my brush then apply! Dries to more of a powder finish which I looove. Will give you fierce, makeup artist looking brows!
Makeup Forever Aqua Brow $20. This has the same concept of the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade but it a little more of a gel and feels more light weight than the Dip Brow. This tends to look more natural and the color isnt as intense/pigmented right off the bat. Also has excellent staying power!
