I get asked about what makeup products I use, so I thought I’d share!

Why I love it:
1 Lancome’s Teint Idole: This foundation is full coverage with a matte finish, so it looks good in photos and real life. And it lasts all day.
2 Tarte The buffer Airbrush: This brush makes your foundation look like it was applied by an airbrush machine. Trust me on this because I have an airbrush machine and I almost prefer this brush to the machine.
3 Too Face Milk Chocolate Soleil: A good bronzer for light to medium skin tones. Plus it smells delicious. Just like chocolate.
4 Tarte Shape Tape: This is a full coverage concealer. It is creamy, a tiny amount goes a long way, and it blends well. One other thing I love about it is that you can use it for highlighting and contouring if you want. And it’s an award winning product. When I picked it up at Ulta, the employees there said it was one of their top two sellers.
5 It Cosmetics Heavenly Lux Brush: If you’re looking for a concealer brush, this is the one I’d recommend. I only use it for concealer because I love my buffer brush.
6 Watts Up: This is a good highlighter if you are dry or prefer cream. It is a good fit for fair skin.
7 Becca Opal Glow:  This powder is beautiful and really does give a glow.
8 Coralista Blush: A really great natural-looking blush. It gives you a highlight as well if you don’t have time to highlight and contour.
9 Setting Spray: I’d recommend this for humid climates or if you are oily. Your makeup will last way longer. I prefer a spray to a powder setting because powder looks cake-y and gets in fine lines and wrinkles. I especially don’t like powder because my foundation is matte.
10 Anastasia Brow Definer Pencil: I love this because it has an angled tip. Genius! It goes on smooth and stays put, giving you full coverage for your brows. I use light brown because I like having warmth to cover up my gray tattoos. If I didn’t have tattoos I would use a more ashy color, like taupe.
11 Anastasia Brow Gel: My brow hair is long and so this keeps it in place. I’d also recommend this if you have unruly brows.
12 Too Faced Sweet Peach: This smells like peaches and has really smooth colors. This is latest and greatest palette from Too Faced and has great colors for spring. I also like the milk chocolate bar palette.
13 Covergirl Mascara: I’ve tried just about every expensive mascara there is, and I always come back to this one. Obviously everyone has different types of lashes, but I definitely would recommend trying this one out if you haven’t.
14 Covergirl Perfect Blend Eyeliner: I have used this eyeliner for years. I use black brown for everyday use because if I use black for everyday looks, it closes my eyes, so this is black brown is a great alternative. And I love that this product does exactly what it says.
15 Stila Liner: I use this if I want more dramatic cat-eye. It’s fabulous because it stays. Perfect for an evening, or dark bold look. I don’t use it for everyday looks.
16 Train Case in “Queen of the Nile” print: This is one of my favorite JuJuBe bags and it is perfect for holding my makeup.  It is machine washable. It fits everything you could ever want. Flexible, so easy to pack. Favorite pattern, so many other good patterns too.  Plus, it is antimicrobial which is nice to not have to worry about germs with my makeup I put on my face every day.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Swim 2017 Wishlist

I wish I could buy all of these swims this year, but unfortunately I am too practical. I usually buy 1 maybe 2 quality swims a year, and then if I want others I then head to Target or Forever 21 for some less expensive options!
