Favorite Makeup...as of now.

My most favorite makeup products as of this moment...

foundation
MAKE UP FOR EVER Mat Velvet +
Honestly, i've never actually had a "favorite" foundation. Since I need one for this, i'm just going with what I use currently. This lasts all day until I wash it off, even in 105 degree Texas weather. It goes on easy and smooth and you can't "feel" it on your face. This is too matte for my liking (my only downfall), so I mix MAC Strobe Liquid and it's better for me.

concealer
MAC Studio Finish Concealer
This works amazing! I use it where my eyes are dark, near my inner eye, and if I have any blemishes. This is my perfect concealer.

powder
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
I don't always use powder, but this is the best one if I ever do. When I do use it, it's over a foundation. My skin is too dry to wear a powder on it's own. It doesn't look cakey on me at all and I don't need to reapply it throughout the day. I just wish it had a mirror.

highlight
MAC Shell Cream Color Base
FAVORITE. HIGHLIGHT. EVER. I use this on my cheek bones, center of my nose, brow bone, middle of my lips, AND all over my lid. I've read that it creases on the lid, but not on mine. This is the perfect color for me and it sets on the skin so nicely. Such a beautiful glow!!

bronzer
MAC Refined Golden Bronzing Powder
WOW. I've tried so many bronzers and I recently just bought this. I am so glad I did because it's the perfect color for me. There's shimmer but I don't notice it on my skin. It is buildable so there's no way I can add to much accidently and go overboard. It doesn't look fake or muddy at all, it's very natural on me.

cream blush
Revlon Rosy Glow Cream Blush
The texture is so creamy, goes on so easy, and blends very nicely. I've been using this non stop for a few weeks now and it's amazing. It really is a "rosy glow".

powder blush
NARS Deep Throat
I can never get over this name! This had been my favorite powder blush since I bought it because it's amazingly beautiful. It's a glowy peachy pink color with the perfect amount of shimmer. A little goes a long way for me and it stays good all day. This is great when I am tan and not so tan.

eye shadow
MAC Club
I love to wear this all over the lid and blended into the crease. Let's see if I can find the words to describe this. When you apply it straight on it's like a brown with green shimmers, but when blended out it's a warm brown. You can use this one color and it looks like you've used many. Depending on how the light hits your eyes, it'll look different but always beautiful.

eyeliner
Stila Stingray Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner
This waterproof eyeliner stays on my waterline great and I rarely have to apply it, it's the best i've ever tried. It's creamy and goes on smooth so that you don't even have to work with it.

cream liner
Clinique True Black Cream Liner
I've been using this for a long time now and I will never look for another. In fact, it's the only one i've ever used. No matter where I use this it lasts all day.  It's very rich and creamy but after it has set it won't budge. I like how it gives you a little time before it sets to blend out for a softer look. Also, the lid seals tight so it won't dry out!

mascara
L'oreal Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara
I haven't been using this very long but it's awesome so far! It makes my eyelashes long and thick without clumps. It says, "With continued daily use, lashes appear longer, thicker, fuller." So we'll see.

lipstick
MAC Supremely Confident Sheen Supreme Lipstick
I've always tried to find my "perfect nude" and this is it. It is very creamy so it seems like it gets used up real fast. I'm already about to start my third tube and they came out in March. Sometimes I put it on all over and other times I dab it on so that it's not too opaque. I'm not big on lip glosses but I do love how glossy this lipstick is.

Favorite posts are my favorite kind to read!

  1. I really need to purchae a NARS blush. I borrowed my friend's -- I think it was called like bombshell or something to that effect (it was a high pigment pink with a hint of sparkle) and it looked amazing against my skin. I generally don't wear that much makeup but I am willing to reconsider that for a solid blush.

  4. Heather, this is the only powder i've tried from MAC and I like it. I don't use it to keep my face from getting oily, I use it to keep a foundation that doesn't last all day stay put. It's very soft.

  8. This is a great post! How is NARS make up in general? I know it's on the pricey side so whenever I'm about to take the plunge I tend to cop out and buy MAC instead as I know I like that haha
