It has been a LONG hot minute since I’ve posted, but I’m back! since this is the first post in a while, I thought I’d share what I’ve been loving recently.
My newest obsession has been my Foreo luna mini**. This cleansing device is very gentle, yet gets my skin really clean. I also love how it feels like a massage every time I wash my face; it makes washing my face fun. I also have been loving the Skintelligence pH Skin Normalizer. This toner feels very refreshing on my face, and it has done an awesome job at balancing out my skin. I also like to spray this on my hair after my shower to give it an extra boost of conditioning.
My recent favourite face primer for the past several months has definitely been the Smashbox Photo finish Primer Water. I love how this hydrates my dry skin and helps my foundation last all day long. I like to spray this on throughout the day to add some extra hydration back into my skin and refresh my makeup. My newest favourite foundation is the Laura Mercier Candle Glow Soft Luminous foundation. I’ve been loving the light-medium coverage that it provides, plus the fact that it makes my skin look dewy and radiant. When I wear this, my skin looks amazing.
I’ve stuck to a pretty simple eye makeup routine and these five items have been my go-to products. First, I love using the Motives Cosmetics Eye Base. This not only even out the skin tone on my eyelids, but it acts like a primer for any shadows I use. It also can be worn alone and not look weird on the eyes, which is nice for days when I’m in a hurry and want something to even out my eyes. As far as shadows go, I’ve been using the Motives pressed eyeshadow in Cappuccino in my crease and the Sephora Collection eyeshadow in Morning Freshness all over the lid. these shadows, plus the eye base look very pretty on the eyes, while looking very natural. The Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay mascara is by far my Holy Grail mascara. It makes my lashes look long and full, but still keeps them natural looking. For my brows, I’ve kept it fairly natural and just filling in the ends where it’s not as full. I’ve been loving the Maybelline Brow drama Pomade to fill in the empty space. I usually use a couple of swipes per brow and I’m done. I love how simple and easy it is to use.
Winter is harsh on my lips, so I love lip treatments and lip products that add hydration back into my lips. To help keep my lips from looking dry and chapped I’ve been using the Motives 40FY lip treatment. This lip balm is very hydrating and has a slight minty/tingle to help plump and nourish the lips. I love putting this on at night to really keep my lips moisturized. I’ve been using the CoverGirl Oh Sugar! lip balm during the day. I love how it provides a tint to the lips, but keeps them moisturized. My favourite colour is Caramel because it’s a nice nude that is perfect for any makeup look.
