I wanted to share my recent visit to sephora. I have never been one for make up but that is only because I have had no idea how to use it. I always just watched a friend do make up and bought what they bought lol. How many of you have done the same? I think we all have natural talents and fitness over beauty is definitely mine. Ideally I would like to be more organic and conscious about what I am using on my skin but I also rarely put make up on. Step one for me is learn to wear and actually use the make up I have and then I can explore different options and find what works best for me. I am going to share what I have been using and enjoying.
Lately I have been following Courtney Shields on instagram and she shares some amazing tutorials and make up tips. I literally screen shot everything she shares and then head to the store.
Another thing I’ve tried is getting the Fab Fit Fun box lately and it’s lead to me being able to try lots of really cool products too!
It CC+ cream: This foundation is super light weight and was amazing for traveling. I wore it out in the sun, working out and to the beach and it lasted great!
MAC natural radiance prep + prime: This stuff really adds a dewy flow to your finished look. It feels really silky and glides on smooth. You don’t need much like some other primers I’ve tried.
Too faced Born this way concealer: This is my absolute first time trying concealer and it’s been great! I can’t compare to any other products but it’s doing its job in my opinion. Dark circles vanish on days when I have time to glam. If I don’t have much time I usually just get foundation + setting powder on.
NARS Sheer glow foundation: This foundation gives a lot of coverage but not that yucky mask filling. It feels light weight and goes on flawless!
Thrive cosmetics brilliant eye brightener: I use this as eyeshadow, eye brightener and highlighter. It’s a nice creamy stick and blends great too.
Tarte Hotel Heiress Bronzer: I have never had a bronzer do this good of a job. I just have to tap my brush and I have enough coverage. A little goes a LONG way and I’ve been using it on my eyes which is a rad tip Courtney always shares!
Dior Show pump + volume mascara: This stuff is my fave because of actually water proof and doesn’t clump. I don’t like the look of spider lashes and this one goes on light and natural looking.
NYC Dewy finish: This product line is from the drugstore but it’s one of my secret faves to grab some key items from. One being this make up setting spray!
Lise Watier Powder: This powder is also from the drug store but it has great coverage and lasts all day! One of my girl friends has used it for a long time and has me hooked now:)
Have fun playing with some new make up and let me know what you think!
