I don’t use liquid, so I can’t comment on this one, sorry ladies! (I promise I’ll try one soon)…BUT my fave powder foundation is my HOLY GRAIL wouldtotallydiewithoutit MAC StudioFix Powder (I wear C3, for reference)
NARS Laguna- I can’t rave enough about this one- it gives the perfect color, the perfect glow and the packaging is great too. I love that this bronzer works on a lot of different skin tones, and that although it has a slight shimmer to it, it isn’t detectable on the skin.
Bobbi Brown blush in “peony” is my most-used at the moment. It is a bright pink that gives cheeks a super-healthy looking flush
MAC Studio Finish Concealer (the one in the pot.) If you need concealer, please please please go out and buy this one. I’ve used it for so many years, and I’ve never strayed because the coverage is SO incredible. Ladies with skin redness or acne- this is the concealer for you!
Overall Favorite Eye Shadow Brand:
MAC- my fave colors are: satin taupe, retrospeck, honesty and brun
Honorable Mention: Urban Decay and Too Faced
Best Single Product Eyeshadow:
Urban Decay “Midnight Cowboy Rides Again”- this sparkly gold/platinum eyeshadow isn’t for everyone, but I absolutely love it.
MAC Fluidline Gel Liners (I use “dipdown” and “blacktrack”)
DiorShow Black Waterproof
L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof (drugstore)
Best Lip Gloss:
There are so many to list here…I don’t always wear actual colored gloss, but when I do here are my faves- MAC Dazzleglass in “Baby Sparks” and MAC Dazzleglass Creme in “My Favorite Pink”
I really don’t wear lipstick that often, but when I do I use MAC’s “Colorcrafted” or NARS’ “Roman Holiday“…I like PINK…anything pink!
The Sigma Brush Kit (entire set)- I love their SS150 powder brush
NARS and MAC
Best Hair Product:
I know I just started using this (literally today) but I can already tell I absolutely love Pureology’s “Nanoworks” shampoo. I also really love Garnier XXL thickening mousse.
MVP (Most Valuable Product):
Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin- I’ve tried many formulas over the years (cetaphil and clinique, to name a few) and this is the best, non greasy, not irritating moisturizer. I apply it in the morning after washing my face.
Runners up: La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector and Proactiv’s Refining Mask
