Hi everyone! Checking in on a Friday night at 10PM, lol! I posted a few stories on my Instagram today discussing my favorite nude lip liners, lipsticks, and lip glosses AND then at 8PM I checked my DMs and they were literally ALL questions about makeup – and my necklace! I do have all of my make-up listed here on my blog but I thought I’d do a full recap w/shade names in one place just to make it easier for ya! ??‍♀️? [**I update my blog 4x per week usually and I almost ALWAYS cover beauty in one of those 4 – so basically I constantly update my blog with the skincare, makeup, hair products, and more if you ever have a question or need a shade name! Just use the little search tool? in the corner or hit the BEAUTY dropdown!]

OUTFIT DETAILS: White Top | Necklace | Sunglasses [$15] | Sophia’s Onesie via Posh Peanut | Rolex Datejust36 // Cartier Juste un Clou & Love Bracelets

#1. PRIMER || I used THIS primer [use long term to smooth acne scars!!] & then the Elf Poreless Primer – it is SO good!

#2. FOUNDATION || Loving THIS foundation [shade ‘Khaki’] lately! Casey Holmes told me about it- she has a full review on her YouTube channel. The Becca Ultimate Full Coverage Foundation is truly a full coverage, long wearing foundation. I absolutely ADORE this one – it is all I have been wearing! It covers my melasma but it has a really nice finish – almost dewy! Not dewy but not matte – very fresh looking!

#3. EYESHADOW || I’ve been using two shades out of THIS palette [Urban Decay Naked Reloaded] to get the crease to show up – I always use tan/taupe shades to build out the crease area. If you have watched my stories you know I use this technique to get a more almond like eye shape! THEN!!!✨I use glitter pigments on my lid! I use the Too Faced Peaches & Cream Crystal Whips Long Wearing Shimmering Eye Shadow Veil in shade ‘Pop The Bubbly’. Lastly I apply the Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Top Coat in ‘Bronze’ – this gives a really pretty, sparkly but casual eye look.

#4. UNDEREYE AREA || I use the Too Faced Multi-Use Sculpting Super Coverage Concealer in shade ‘Porcelain’ under my eyes and a dampened beauty sponge to blend it out. My favorite beauty sponge right now is the Taste Foundcealer Multitasking Sponge.  Next I set the under eye area with the Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder in shade ‘Lavender’. I apply the powder with that same dampened beauty sponge and later just sweep it off with a small powder brush! [I also have the shade ‘Button’ & it works for me as well.]

#5. SETTING POWDER || I set my foundation with different powders lately… I really like the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Powder but I ran out last week when we were in Maine SO I used my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder GLOW✨ – not the regular one! The glow one is so so beautiful in my opinion – it keeps your skin looking more natural! Again, I just use my dampened beauty sponge to apply this powder – I let it set for a minute and sweep it off w/a fluffy powder brush! I really like IT Cosmetics Fluffy Brushes for this!

#6. CONTOUR || Loving lovinngggggg the Nudestix Tinted Blur Stick to contour my cheeks, nose, & forehead. I really really love this product – it is so good! I do bronze with my favorite bronzer brush and the Laura Mercier Bronzer! Lately I have also really been loving Charlotte Tilbury’s Bronzer as well!

#7. BLUSH || I’m so so so obsessed w/ the Bare Minerals Bounce & Blur blush in shade ‘Pink Sky’.

#8. HIGHLIGHTER || Still obsessed with Benefit’s Cookie Highlighter! I use it on my cheeks, nose, & cupids bow. Always spray my brush with MAC’s Fix+ before dipping into the highlighter though! This helps make it glow better! ✨??‍♀️ *I also use this around my eyes as a brow bone and inner eye pop!]

#9. BROWS || I use ABH Powder [shade ‘Soft Brown’] to fill in my brows – even with microblading I still do this. [?I have a full post on microblading – just search it in the search tool and it comes up ?.] And I always finish by brushing through my brows with the ABH Dipbrow Gel.

#10. EYES || This is the same as always pretty but I will copy and paste and add a new liner in that I really like!  I use two liners – same two as always. I try new ones regularly and always come back to these two: THE BALM ‘SCHWING’ & MAC KOHL LINER.  I use the liquid for the upper lid and the Kohl for the water line on the bottom! I will say I have been using Charlotte Tilbury’s Kohl Eye Liner and it is pretty good! People always ask ab my lashes and I have been getting lash extensions for a while now – and I DO put mascara on them! My lash girl also puts mascara on hers! I know people tell you not to- so make sure you ask! But I would recommend being careful of the type of mascara – like NO waterproof or super long wearing – or no really oily ones! And DO NOT get aggressive with trying to remove it! I literally only use warm water to remove my mascara – no tugging or rubbing! I still use my 3 favorite mascaras on rotation! I’ll paste those in here:

CHARLOTTE TILBURY | This category was the easiest because I knew exactly the top 3! I am ranking these in order so this one is definitely my favorite but the other 2 are right up there with them! I’ve tried TONS of mascaras this year and these 3 are easily the best and the ones I’ve re-purcahsed! I do put them on my lash extensions with no issues also.

IT COSMETICS SUPERHERO | I love the brush on this one – it doesn’t take like to ‘wear in’ unlike some mascaras which take a few applications before they are really ‘good’ and apply easily. All three of these are amazing and make your lashes look longer and thicker!

HOURGLASS | If you read the descriptions^ above you can see that these were the 3 best by a long shot! I really don’t have a lot to say because they were game changers.

#11. SETTING SPRAY || I always use a setting spray – ALWAYS! I love MAC Fix+, Morphe’s Setting Spray is what I go through the fastest, and the Farsali one is $$$$ but worth the money. I think I’ve raved ab it in like 4 blog posts since April!! But I’m serious – its good for a final set to melt it all together!

#12 LIPS || Watch my stories asap! They do disappear in 24 hours and I shared all of the best liners, lipsticks, and glosses! I am wearing Stripdown + Kim KW + Love Potion!

    How do you apply the elf primer? With a sponge, or your fingers? Do you pat it on or rub it in like a moisturizer? Just wondering about your technique.

  8. This fall i’m all about the nude lipstick. the ones i usually find pull pink with my coloring, i will give these a try. Thanks for sharing

  9. Can I just say what a comfort to uncover someone who genuinely
    knows what they are discussing over the internet. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people have to check this out and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you definitely possess the gift.
