Just wanted to do a quick make-up routine update... my skin has been undergoing many changes lately due to the chemical peels and topical treatments I am using so I've been changing my routine more frequently. And I have been asked to do a video tutorial which I will do once we settle down in Tulsa and I have the space for it.
Anyway, MAC just released their Pro Longwear Foundation on Thursday and we happened to be eating dinner next to the mall so I was able to pick some up. It was a lucky strike for me because the new lipstick colors were released that same day and my favorite, Happy Go Lucky, only has one tube of lipstick left. You'll notice it is on backorder online also so make sure to get on the pre-order list! Happy Go Lucky is very similar to the color of Candy Yum Yum but its got more shine & goes on much smooth since it isn't matte.
So far, I love the new Pro Longwear foundation - its got a soufflé like feeling to it, but it goes on smoothly & does a great job with coverage & doesn't feel too heavy. I would recommend going up a shade or two - I am a NC20 but had to do NC25... and probably should've done NC30. On top of that, I put the Studio Fix to set it. I use the MAC 129 brush for almost everything which is probably not great. But it's one of my favorite brushes & it's a little too expensive to buy multiples. Next, I have been trying out Tarte's new waterproof bronzer - and I don't know if I love it yet. I don't think it is long wear or waterproof, honestly. However, I do like the natural brown color it is.
As far as eyes go, I've been swearing by Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' mascara since October. It's hands down the best - but my friend Caitlin told me to try a primer underneath and it makes a world of difference. Finally, I use MAC's Kohl 'Feline' liner for top & bottom - it's always been my favorite pencil liner.
