Favorite products, March edition

by michelle on April 1, 2015 · 0 comments

The theme for March products was “fast and easy”. There were lengthy foundation applications this month. I was tired, stressed, and run down. What you will see here are some tried and true favorites that get the job done.

  1. Elf Small Stipple Brush – at $3 I think I need more than one of these. This is the best brush for under eye concealer ever. I also tried applying foundation one day (the shade was too dark, I had to remove my makeup and start over. Travesty.) with this brush wet a little bit with some toner, and it was a nice application and not at all streaky. Recommend. Pair this with the next recommendation.
  2. Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in the lightest shade and the brightening shade. I dab a little bit of both shades under my eyes and blend out with the elf brush. This is fool proof and fast. (When I need more coverage or 12 hour coverage, I use Mac ProLongwear Concealer.)
  3. Tarte Amazonian clay Powder Foundation – This sort of wears off by the end of a long day, but it’s still a great foundation for fast application.
  4.  Tarte Glisten Blush. I LOVE this color. Honestly, this is crazy similar to Nars Orgasm, but BETTER on my skin. I don’t know what’s different about it but it’s much more flattering on me. Swatch this next to orgasm and it’s hard to tell the difference, but on my cheeks, there’s SOMETHING different about it.
  5. Ouidad Sea Salt Spray  makes for a quick morning hair wise. One mornings when my hair needs washing, I spray a good amount of this in my hair and I get soft waves all day. They’re not amazing Victoria’s Secret model beach waves or anything, but they’re good enough.

So, those were the products that got me through this last month. What you’ll probably start noticing if I do these regularly is that I’m starting to find my tried-and-true holy grail status type products. Finally. After years of being a makeup addict.
