The perfect step 1 primer to get your face ready for all the makeup you are about to put on. A little goes a long way, and I love it!
Lancome Cushion Foundation - $47
So let me tell you about this beauty!!! This is the best hands down foundation EVER. I use it in Ghana (it does not melt in the 100F heat), I use it in the winter, and I use it in the fall). It blends perfectly into your skin and you actually do not feel like you are wearing it.
I use color 450 in the winter, and color 500 in the summer.
Nars Concealer - $30
This is by far my best concealer that I use. It is creamy, it BLENDS into your skin without making you look like the Ghost of Christmas eve. I usually keep mine for about two months so it is worth the investment. I use color caramel (your concealer should be lighter than your skin color)
Becca EyeShadow Matte Palette - $40
I am not big on super bright eyeshadow, and this palette helps me stick to neutral colors for my everyday looks. It is super hard to find eyeshadows that do not have glitter in them, so this is a Godsend.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara - $26
Do not use any other mascara! I repeat! This is the end. I live and die for this baby. My friend tried to borrow it once and I almost ended our friendship. If I had to choose between food and this mascara....well....you know it!
Lancome Blush - Color Shimmer Plum Affair - $32
I love a deeper blush to add some depth to my face. I love the Lance blush because it is super pigmented and the color blends so much nicer!
Gold Deposit Highlighter
LET ME TELL YOU!!!!
I have been using this foundation since I was a freshman in college. My friend Amanda put me on it and I have never turned back. This is how you get the golden highlight that makes you look like you were birthed from liquid gold.
ALSO - I have had the same one for two years. This stuff lasts FUH-EVA.
Lip Gloss ( color - Sheer Coincidence) - $25
I love a soft pink lip and this is one that I have used since college. Do note that it is a little thick so I apply vaseline first so it goes on easier.
Skin Finish Setting Spray - $24
This is the one thing that I was told to get if I had any hopes of having my makeup look flawless. This helps keep everything set and looking soft. My sister in law thinks it is basically tap water, but I am a believer that it works magic
