Hi everyone! If you still check this you ROCK and I apologize for taking forever in between my last couple posts. I have been extremely busy with off season traveling and wedding planning. I just had my bachelorette this past weekend in Miami and that probably took about 5 years off my life. I have also been busy going to the gym since we’ve been back home in Tampa. I bought WAY too many bathing suits for our honeymoon coming up and I need to work on getting my body extra fit!!!! 😉 If anyone wants particular workout/fitness blog posts just let me know.
I have some new favorite makeup products I would like to share with you.
Kat Von D Tattoo Foundation in the shade Medium 54. This foundation is one of a kind. It has FULL coverage, has 24- hour wear, fragrance and oil-free and has a matte finish. Pretty much everything I was looking for. You don’t need to wear any concealer with this foundation. Apply and go! Being back in the Florida humidity I was expecting to get a little more oily but this foundation really works for that matte finish I needed. Uhh I love this stuff!
Cover|FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment- I used to think primer or no primer it didn’t really matter; I never noticed much of a difference either way. BUT this primer helps with my redness and makes my foundation go on much smoother. I love that it has salicylic acid in it as well to help with any breakouts. If you read my last post I have been on the lookout for products with better skin friendly ingredients and this primer is vegan and free of parabens, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil, and talc.
NARS radiant creamy concealer in shade medium 2 Ginger. I like to put a couple dabs of this under my eye to wake me up if I am ever looking fatigued. I put this on after my foundation and I blend it with my damp beauty blender. Very hydrating and covers well. Also paraben free and does not crease like some other under eye concealers.
Tarte smooth operator amazonian clay finishing powder- THIS POWDER IS A MUST BUY! I still like the Laura Mercier loose translucent setting powder for under my eyes specifically. The Tarte powder is soft like satin and keeps my face matte for hours. After I do my foundation, concealer, blush, I sweep this powder all over the areas I want to set and it is FLAWLESS! It is kind of a mess and I seem to always get it everywhere but so worth running out asap and putting it in your own stocking for Christmas!
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray– oil-free, paraben free! I love this stuff because I feel my skin can still breathe after using it. After partying until 4:30 am in Miami my makeup still looked like I just applied it and it does not crack or feel like your spraying hairspray on your face just to keep your makeup from coming off (like some setting sprays can feel). I don’t recommend this if you don’t NEED long lasting makeup but every now and then when you know you wont be able to touch up, this spray works wonders!
If I don’t get on here before Christmas again, I hope all you beautiful people have a safe, loving, and Happy Holiday!
