When it comes it makeup, I’m what I like to call the “play it safe” one. I’ve never been one to experiment with bright and bold eye or lip colors. I’ve only recently began to do some contouring (not sure why I waited so long because my cheekbones are looking quite snnnnnnaaatttccchhhheeeeddd). But nonetheless, I still enjoy dabbling in makeup and products. For today’s post, I wanted to show you guys three products that I have been OBSESSED with for the past few months now. Expect to see more editorial style beauty content from now on!
1) Too Faced’s “Better Than Sex” Mascara
I’ve raved about this on my snapchat multiple times but the pics below give you a better idea as to why. I am wearing zero falsies in these photos. I swear by this mascara y’all. It’s the only one I use. I go through a bottle in maybe 4 months because I use it THAT much. Even on my no makeup days, I still apply this to my lashes to make me look more awake. Not to mention, the packaging just speaks to me. I mean, I don’t even wanna throw the bottle away once it’s finished!
2. NYX “Set It, Don’t Fret It” Setting Powder
I started using this powder after running out of a higher end one, and safe to say, I was pleasantly surprised! For it to retail for only $10, it’s a pretty good product and I have been using it daily to mattify my face. Be warned, it will make you MATTE! I don’t use too much because I like to look more dewy. But I also have oily skin. So this helps me find a nice balance.
3. Anastasia Beverly Hills “Sun Dipped” Palette
Highlighting my face is my favorite part of doing my makeup. As with probably every other person that does their makeup. I legit don’t leave my house without putting it on when I am made up. It goes from just enough to full blow dramatic. For today’s post, I went dramatic. I mean come on! That highlight though! This palette has four different shades. I always gravitate towards Bronzed and/or Tourmaline. But this product will for sure last me quite a while. As much as I’ve used it since I got it, I’m surprised I haven’t made a dent in it yet.
