So, I thought for my first post I would do a 2-in-1 post and it so happened that all of my favorites created a makeup look. The makeup look that my favorites create is (in my opinion) an every day look so lets get in to my favorites, shall we?
First the face:
These have been my go to face products for the past month.
First the BB Cream:
NYC Smooth Skin BB Cream 5 in 1 Instant Matte Skin Perfector
I like this BB Cream other then it being a bit sheer. It’s awesome. I would recommend using a makeup sponge/beauty blender to apply it. That’s what I found works the best. I got mine at Walmart. It was around $4 so it was pretty cheap.
Next the Concealer:
E.l.f. Maximum Coverage Concealer Oil Free
At the time, I was looking for a new Concealer. And e.l.f. was having free shipping and this one sounded like the best for the best price. I was a little skeptical about this because it sounded to good to be true. Maximum Coverage and Oil Free? But I got it anyway and it’s pretty amazing. The only thing is I wouldn’t say it’s MAXIMUM coverage, I would call it medium coverage. But thats okay for me and for $3? I don’t think you can beat that.
Next The Powder:
Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder
This has been my favorite for a while. I love this powder. If you don’t have this or haven’t tried it before I highly recommend it. It does exactly what it says. It helps you stay matte. It does say up to 5 hours of natural shine control, and I would have to agree with that. So, if you are planning on wearing this for more then five hours, I would take this with you in your purse for touchups. I got mine at Walmart for around $4 or $5.
Now For The Eyes:
These have been my favorite eye products for the past month.
First the Eyeshadow Palette:
Profusion Natural Eyeshadow Palette
I love this eyeshadow palette. It has 3 matte shades and 3 shimmer shades. For this look, I used the matte shades (as you can see in the pic above) I also used the pinkish shade on my cheeks as a kinda highlight. I got mine at Here Today… for around $4 or $5.
Next The Pigment:
Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment 24hr – Pink Rebel
This is like my favorite part of the look, the color! I love this eyeshadow.
First, its purple/pink. Second, it has a blue/purple sheen to it. If you get it in the right light or wet it, it looks more purple. Third, I got it at Dollar Tree so it was only ONE dollar. (insert happy dance) I put this on the bottom lash line.
Next the Mascara’s:
Cover Girl Clump Crusher – Black
E.l.f. Beautifully Bare Defining Mascara – Buff Black
Cover Girl: This was my first mascara I ever got. I’m so glad it was because it’s now my favorite mascara. I plan to repurchase this mascara when it runs out. I think next time I would like to get the waterproof one to try. I got mine at Walmart for around $6.
E.l.f.: I got this the same time I got the concealer, because I wanted to try something from The Beautifully Bare Collection. I also needed mascara (#perfectscenario). And I’m so glad that I did because it’s an awesome mascara. The only thing is, if you don’t put another mascara over the E.l.f. Mascara, it kinda “never ” dries. It’s weird but if you put another mascara over it (like the Clump Crusher) it’s fine. I got it for $3 on the Elf website.
And last, but not least the lips:
E.l.f. Matte Lip Color – Tea Rose
I’ve had the color natural before and I really liked it. I was going to Target to get another one, but they were out of stock. I got this one instead and I’m so glad I did. This one is now my favorite lip product. I use it everyday. It’s creamy, pigmented, and awesome! Like I said, I got it at Target for $3.
The finished look:
Hope you guys liked my first post as much as I liked making it. Till next time…
