She gives us a peek into her makeup bag and shares what products she’s loving and why.
My makeup bag is definitely much bigger than this, but here are a few items I’m obsessed with at the moment –
Makeup Forever HD Foundation
Love love the velvety finish this foundation gives! I usually apply with a buffer brush and set with a beauty blender. It gives medium coverage but can be built to achieve a full coverage. One or two more applications round the face will do the trick!
MAC Lipstick In Honey Love
Is there anyone really who doesn’t like nude?? Maybe, but I’m the Queen of all nudes. I always carry a nude lipstick and lip gloss in my purse. This one is called Honey Love by Mac, it is matte and has a brown tone to it, love it!
Tom Ford Lip Color In Bruised Plum
If it’s not nude, it has to be plum! This lipstick is truly the bomb. It feels matte once it sets, but has a shine to it. With this lipstick, I usually don’t need a lip liner as it doesn’t move, awesome right? It is the perfect transition from a day to night look for anyone.
Sigma F25 Tapered Face Brush
This powder brush is not the typical full and rounded brush. It is more tapered if anything. I particularly love this brush because it picks up very little product and blends finely. It can also reach into corners, for example under the eyes, sides of the nostrils etc. which is another plus.
Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Face Powder
This product I have always loved, it is translucent (no colour) and works magic as a blot powder after long hours with makeup on. It also helps to prevent further shine. Definitely a must have!
EOS Lip Balm
Definitely my favorite lip balm ever. Love how much moisture it gives my lips without looking oily. I always use this every morning and before applying lipstick. The price is good and one can last for months.
