February Beauty Favorites

Make Up For Ever Primer Step 1 Nourishing Primer • I use to never use primers & now I can't start my makeup routine without them. When my skin needs  a little extra TLC, the MUFE Nourishing Primer is my go-to. It help cover up ultra dry spots & blends out those flaky spots to help my foundation appear flawless.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer 'Taupe' • My brows are my frenemy. Sometimes I love them & sometimes I hate them! I use to use the ABH Brow Wiz, but the fine tip wasn't easy for me to apply + I would get frustrated. When ABH came out with the new tapered end I had to give it a try. Application is smooth & you don't have to press hard to build color on the brows. My brows love it!

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint* • This is my first ever NARS foundation & I have loved almost everything about it so far, except for it being super thick. It offers great coverage that is buildable & keeps my shiny T-zone under control which is a plus. I have been combining it with the Becca Backlight Priming Filter using my beauty blender, which gives a more even application. I would say that it doesn't last all day, but it doesn't feel heavy on my skin. & I love the fact that it is SPF 30.

NARS Blush 'Douceur' • My love for NARS is everlasting & this blush that I scored off ebay has been on heavy repeat since I added it to my collection. The most lovely mauvey matte blush that gives just the right amount of color to my cheeks. Looking for a dupe > Tarte Beloved.

MAC Lipstick 'Fresh Brew' • THIS LIPSTICK! Can't live without it. The perfect taupey nude with a hint of shine. It reminds me of a lipgloss without the sticky feeling. I love wearing it over top of stripdown or whirl liner, alone or overtop a darker matte lipstick. It is just the perfect shade to have in my bag at all times.

Dior Limited Edition Fusion Mono Eyeshadow 'Mirror' • Two words. Sparkly + Gold. This little pot creates the most beautiful light-reflecting champagne glow that can be worn on the eyelids or cheekbones. It is super blendable and I love pariring it with a neutral lip. Every time I wear it I get so many compliments. Def. one of my favorite purchases!

Becca Backlight Priming Filter • Finally, I have found the most magical product ever. I have tried the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow and Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting & didn't fall in love with them like I wanted, so I took them back. They didn't give me that umph of shimmer that I was wanting. And then I found the Becca Blacklight Priming Filter, brought it home and the rest is history. This product... just WOW! If you want some intense shimmer with a dewy finish alone or mixed in with your foundation, then this product is for you. The primer is also super hydrating with is a big plus for my dry skin.

NARS Lipgloss 'Hot Sand'* • This lipgloss makes me want to be sitting on the beach with my toes in the sand getting nice bronzy tan. A beautiful pale sandy gold with a hint of shimmer, but offers a smooth finish with a bit of gloss. Love pairing it over top of a neutral matte lipstick.

Diorskin Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating Concealer • This long wearing concealer helps cover up my dark circles, as well as hydrate the under eye area without any creases. It lasts all day & it completely brightens up my eyes. I have even used it as a lid base for my eyeshadows.
