Blush, Highlighter & Contour
The Rare Beauty liquid blush, this blush became a viral sensation after many videos circulated due to the incredible pigment within one swipe of the applicator. The weightless and long-lasting blush is favored in the shades ‘Happy’ or ‘Joy’. The Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer is one of the best lightweight bronzers that will have your skin looking naturally defined, without a greasy feel.
Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand in Pinkgasm is absolutely stunning! It leaves the most gorgeous pink glow. It has been viral on TikTok so hopefully it gets restocked. Another incredible product from CT is Hollywood Contour Wand. It gives the skin the most gorgeous warm and sunkissed look.
Loose powders are important to set your makeup and accomplish a flawless finish.
The powder that will make your skin look fabulous is hands down the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder. Following close behind is the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder, this powder blurs all imperfections with ease. I love adding this powder as the last step to brighten the under eye. Lastly, Huda Beauty’s Easy Bake loose powder that can be used as a setting powder as well as a baking powder. If you like full glam with coverage, this powder is for you. A little goes a long way.
The search for a good foundation is always tough. Especially when most of our 2021 shopping is online. Which is why I’d like to make it easy for you! The Shisiedo – Synchro Skin Radiant Lifting Foundation is my favorite medium-coverage pick. It is skin in a bottle! The finish is natural while providing great coverage. Next up is the Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Foundation. This full coverage foundation provides a matte finish for up to 24 hours of wear. They just reformulated it to remove fragrance (yay Huda!)
Last but not least, The Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint that isn’t your typical foundation, It is a lightweight, light-to-medium coverage tint that is easily build-able for the perfect look.
If you are looking for a full coverage foundation, KVD Beauty Good Apple is a great choice for skins that are normal to dry. If you are very oily, Nars Soft Matte is a better choice.
Everyone loves a dramatic eye right? Well I have picked the best of the bunch to release your inner beauty guru. To start off, Makeup By Mario has created the perfect neutral Master Mattes eyeshadow palette to take your look to the next level. Pairing well with the Master Mattes palette comes the Master Pigment Pro Eyeliner Pencil that comes in five shades to elevate your eyes. The perfect brown is my personal favorite shade for the Pro Eyeliner Pencil. These pencils are incredibly creamy and easy to use. It takes 15 minutes for the eyeliner to set giving you time to get that eyeliner placed. Once it sets, it will last all day and night. Yes, it can be a bit hard to remove if you use too much. Finally, the iconic Pat McGrathboth the Pat McGrath Mothership VII and VIII Eyeshadow Palettes. These palettes are a dream! I have looked at them and tried them. They are ultra pigmented and the shades are spot on! I don’t own them yet but you bet they are in my cart ready to go! So stay tune for some gorgeous photos!
Brows are the highlight of a great look, the Huda Beauty #BombBrows Microshade Brow Pencil will complete your look to provide hair-like-strokes to shape your brows to perfection. It has an ultra-fine 0.9mm tip making it the smallest tip in the market. PRO tip: hold the pencil on your hands and roll it to warm it up.
Talking about creating the perfect shape, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze Styling Wax has one on the strongest hold to create that fluffy brow or laminated brow look (when the eyebrow hairs are combed upwards)
Lipstick & Glosses
To complete your look, the Pat McGrath BlitzTrance Lipstick will leave you in shock! The lipstick comes in seven beautiful shades that contain ultra-reflective pearls for the perfect glow. To top it all off, Fenty Beauty has a Gloss Bomb Color Drip Lip Cream that will leave your lips looking hydrated and smooth, with my favorite shade being Mauve Wive$. Pillow Talk pencil and lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury is a go-to. It looks great on a lot of different skin tones. You probably have seen me wear CT hot lips lipstick in Kim K.W. is a light nude with a satin finish. I wear it a lot! This last product is the Danessa Myricks Colorfix Eye, Cheek, & Lip Cream, which can save a lot of hassle! This product is multipurpose and long-wearing, saving you time and money so that you do not need to look for separate products. Anything from Danessa Myricks is great! She never disappoints! The shade Creme Brulee is the perfect shade for the eyes, lips and cheeks!
Want to know what I am Splurging on?
Anything Dior is outstanding! They have the Backstage Face is Body foundation that is a staple within the beauty community. I haven’t tried their concealers but they supposed to amazing (it’s on my shopping list!). Also Gucci! They have this bronzer you have to check it out, the packaging is exquisite and the way this bronzer melts on the skin is beautiful. Gucci has a foundation that beauty blogger and influencer Emily Gemma was raving about. Influencer Mikayla was raving about the Pat McGrath foundation and I can’t wait to try it!
