Well it certainly doesn't feel like Spring out there, but it's that time of year to freshen up the beauty routine! I'm still anxiously awaiting the Sephora VIB sale to really stock up, but in the meantime here are a few products I've been working into my routine.
I'e been a major fan of this powder for ages and the new shade in medium deep is a game changer! I was sent the new shade complimentary from Influenster and love it just a little bit more than the original. It's just as long wearing with a flawless matte finish, and applying it with the giant powder puff makes the application feel even more special. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that is has a slightly red hue, and my skin tone is more yellow so it's not a perfect fit, but still looks amazing
When they say perfect matte, they are absolutely not lying. I fell in love with the Dolce & Gabbana creamy luminous formula, which I love for an evening out, but since my skin is so oily I decided to try their matte version which is my new holy grail foundation. It goes on smooth, is buildable so for days when I have breakouts I can add an extra layer, and looks perfect all day. It's a lot more than I've ever spent on a foundation, but worth every penny.
Primer is an essential for me, and I love this formula! I was nervous that daily use would irritate my skin because of the acne treatment, but so far no issues to report. I can't say it's clearing up my skin because that still has it's ebbs and flows, but it keeps my face on all day and plays well with my other favorite face products.
I love a good highlighter, and this Julep formula has enough shimmer to get your cheekbones popping, but not as extreme as the unicorn highlighters that have been trending. I dust it on sparingly with a fan brush for a nice, healthy glow, and I love that it wears well throughout the day, keeping my naturally oily skin from venturing into highbeam territory.
I started playing with lashes a few months ago, mostly just because I wanted to practice using them and have since fallen in love. The thing to figure out about lashes is not just application, but which ones actually fit your eyes in a flattering way. I'm obsessed with these wispy, romantic lashes. The name is Bambie and they leave you positively doe-eyed! They are on sale now for only $7, and each one will last a while. I've worn my current pair 7 days in a row and they still look great. I will be stocking up on these babies just in case they sell out!
