Here are my Picks for my most loved and most wanted Beauty from makeup to skincare and a few other things in between. Happy Shopping lovelies! xx
Foundation, Concealer, Tinted Moisturizer Picks
+ Giorgio Armani Illuminous Silk – Need I say more!? If you haven’t heard of GA’s highly rated and most popular foundation, let me just say it is loved by makeup artists and makeup lovers alike for it’s flawless application and glowing skin affect. Worth the splurge during the sale so you can save! Especially if you have always wanted to try it.
+ Estee Lauder Double Wear – One of my personal favourites, gives you that flawless complexion I look for and a medium to heavy coverage – totally buildable and is a little nicer on my wallet.
+ Clean Makeup Pick – Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation – Love this brand for their clean makeup products and they work just as good. Worth a try if you are making the switch to clean make up! More Clean Makeup and Clean Skincare Picks I posted about HERE.
+ My Concealer Fave – Nars radiant creamy concealer – Just like the name says : creamy but not heavy or cakey and is perfect for under eye or blemishes…I hate when I have to buy two different ones because of the formula or coverage being better for one specific need.
+ Honorable Mention – Hourglass Air Brush Concealer
+ Setting Powder Pick – Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder – If you are ok with a little mess, this loose powder is perfect for setting under eye makeup or full face depending on your needs. Excellent coverage. Also, CT Flawless Finish Setting Powder is a lot more user friendly if you don’t care for or have time for loose powders, amazing for setting that under eye concealer and is easier for travel…not as much mess.
Mascara, Eye Liner & Brows Picks
+ Benefit They’re Real Lengthening Mascara – MY go-to, oldie but a goodie or ride or die….Whatever you want to call it, I always go back to this one when in doubt and it never steers me wrong. Does it all! MY other number one (if I can find it – it’s always sold out) Lancome Hypnose Volumizing Mascara just never ever fails to give long full lashes!
+ CILS Booster XL Enhancing Mascara. – Primer for your mascara, this is almost a must for fuller longer lashes. I grab it whenever I have a little more too spend and is my immediate go to for events, parties, weddings etc. Perfect chance to grab/try it!
+ Lancome Lash Idole Lash Lifting & Volumizing Mascara : IN MY CART – Can’t wait to try this one,. I heard it is Basically the holy grail of Mascara’s… I will have to wait and…
+ Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel – If you do nothing else to your brows…then just make it this. Especially if you have long brow hairs or don’t care to fill them in, keep them in place with this clear gel.
Lips, Eye Shadow & Setting Spray Picks
+ Patrick Ta Major Glow Lip Shine – Am I the only one who loves a shiny lip for everyday? When everything else is simple and basic, a little shine goes a long way…and this PT lipgloss gives you lips major shine power. Seriously stunning!
+ Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – Keep this by your night stand and apply a little every night for soft, hydrated lips. What’s the point of buying the gorgeous lipgloss and lipstick if your lips are cracked and dry?! lol.
+ Tartlette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow – The perfect colour shades for everyday looks or layered for a sultry smokey eye. Nudes, browns and bonzes are my jam, so this eye shadow palette is really all I need.
+ Caudalie Beauty Elixir – This spray is the perfect combination of prepping/hydrating skin before makeup and setting it when finished. Setting spray really makes an overall difference in not just making your makeup last longer but also giving you a facial glow.
Blush & Bronzer Picks
Cleansers and Scrubs
+ Fresh Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash – If you’re looking for a simple cleanser with no harsh smells or products, Fresh gives you exactly that Fresh Skin at an affordable cost. It’s always my when in doubt…
+ Clean Brand Pick – Drunk Elephant No. 9 Jelly Cleanser – DE is one of my absolute fave clean brands. Clean, natural products but always effective and worth every penny. This is a perfect chance to give them a try if you have been wanting to incorporate clean beauty into your routine ….I highly recommend you do!
Moisturizers & Serums
+ Ole Henriksen Vitamin C Gel Creme is light and fluffy and a burst of Vitamin C for your face. It’s feels refreshing but hydrating. Similar feeling to the whipped and light feeling of Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Gel Creme.
+ Shiseido Pure Retinol Soothing Eye Masks are my obsession. A great treatment for the sensitive and puffy eye area.
A little Bit of everything else
+ These are a few of may favourite things….
This is your chance to try anything you have been wanting to grab but have been putting off!
