Must Have Makeup Products:
It Cosmetics CC+ Cream – This product is completely life changing for me! You may know that I struggle big time with sensitive skin and acne. I finally gave in and tried this CC+ cream over the holidays and I absolutely couldn’t believe the amazing coverage it provides. It goes on so smoothly and a little bit goes a long way! It masks any redness or discoloration on my face and actually lasts all day. If you’re looking for a foundation that provides full coverage and is super lightweight, this is it!
It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara – I spent a lot of time wondering if this mascara was worth the hype and the $24 it cost, and trust me, it totally is! If you aren’t wanting to splurge on this mascara, another favorite of mine is the NYX Double Stacked Mascara ($14.99).Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – This is actually the first and only Naked palette I have tried and it is seriously amazing! It’s perfect for creating a variety of looks, from a simple every day eye to a nice smoky eye. The shadows themselves go on very smoothly and I’ve never had a problem with creasing. I use the MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study as a base.
Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer – Similar to the It Cosmetics CC+ Cream, I have absolutely fell in love with this concealer. The coverage is buildable and it is very moisturizing, which is perfect for our dry winter.
e.l.f. Cosmetics Blush Palette – I recently received this palette thanks to e.l.f. and have used it every day! For only $6 you can create so many different looks, and I really love the subtle shades in this palette. I love to wear brighter blush in the spring and summer, but love a more muted look in the colder months.
Must Have Skincare Products:
Clarisonic Mia 2 Cleansing System – I’ve had my Clarisonic for years and still love it. There is a reason why pretty much everyone who has ever tried it raves about it – it is really that good! My face always feels so much cleaner after using it. I personally find that my skin goes a little crazy if I use it daily, so I try to only use my Clarisonic 2-3 times a week. I usually use it with the Clinique cleansing bar.
