But First, Makeup.

Hello Beautifuls! How many girls go into Sephora or Ulta and feel like they have died and gone to heaven? I’m sure it’s not only me. Now, I’m no beauty guru or have near as much makeup as they do, but I guess I have a pretty good amount of makeup. Makeup makes me feel confident and like I can take on the world. I still feel beautiful without makeup, but it gives me a little confident boost. I did not start getting into makeup until I was about 18 years old. I use to be more of a powder, eyeliner, and mascara kinda girl. Now I have to beat the face and slay. I don’t do my makeup very often, you know being a mother of a toddler and all. I usually do my makeup while he takes his afternoon nap. But, sometimes I’m so tired and have so much to do and I don’t have time to do a full face so I usually put concealer, powder, mascara, and eyeliner and call it a day. Down below I am going to talk about my favorite go-to products I use when I do a full face, from primer to setting spray.



This is by far my favorite primer at the moment. It makes my makeup look so smooth and flawless. This is the Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. You can find it in Sephora for $44.00.


I have to foundations I use, but this is the one I reach for the most. It’s kind of annoying because it doesn’t have a pump, it has a dropper. Besides this little inconvenience its a great foundation, it wears beautifully without getting very cakey on the face. I either use my beauty blender or the tarte brush seen in this picture. It’s the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. it can also be found at Sephora for $44.00.


As you can see I am scraping the edges of this concealer. I don’t know what tarte created and did but, this is the amazing. It is so full coverage and so blendable, it is just simply amazing. Like I said before, sometimes I do not have the time to sit there and blend my foundation and do all this extra stuff. So, I just grab this tarte shapetape concealer and put a few dot under my eyes to  cover my black circle put some powder foundation and I am good to go. It is exclusively at Ulta and believe the tarte website for $27.00 , but if you need to know your shade you can go check them out at Ulta.


This right here is my holy grail for setting powders. It has got to be the most amazing powder ever! I set my whole face with this an a little goes a long way. Some setting powders leave a white cast and if taking a picture with flash it sure will have a flashback, but not this. I absolutely love this. It is a but pricey, compared to other setting powders, but to me this is worth every penny. This is the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder, it is available at Sephora for $55.00. (I got this when they have the VIB rouge sale going on.)


These are my go-to blush and bronzer. The Becca Blush pallet has three beautiful blushes, this can’t be purchased it was a holiday collection from last year. But the bronzer is available at Ulta for $28.00. I love how bronzy it make my skin look. It brings a lot of product, I use this every time I do my makeup and I still have not hit pan. These two product sure bring my face back to life after foundations and powder.


Now we are getting into highlight. By far my favorite part of my makeup routine. This is a must. I can’t walk out the house without glowing to Jesus. I have many highlighter but this pallet right here, IS EVERYTHING! I was in Japan when this came out and I had my beautiful madre go get me this. She grabbed the last one in that store. This is a limited edition ABH Nicole Guerriero highlight pallet, so it was a big deal that I got it. There are 6 blinding highlighters. I mean this has me shinning like a diamond every time. I do not know what I am going to do once I hit pan.


These three are my go to eyeshadow pallets. I can created any eye look with these three. All three are super pigmented and blendable. The Lorac pallet was a holiday collection, but Lorac always comes out with a pro pallet during the holidays. The other two are at Sephora the ABH Modern Renaissance pallet is $42.00 and the small Huda Beauty pallet is $27.00. It is very compact and easy to travel with. I love burgundy and pinks, both the ABH and Huda pallet give me those colors. I use to always go for a brown and gold eye look, but I wet out of my comfort zone and I have never looked back.


Finally we get to mascara, eyeliner, and lips. My favorite mascara use to be Too Faced better than sex, but it always start to crumble and flake on my face. Then I found tarte light, camera, lashes, found at Sephora for $23.00. If you aren’t blessed like me and don’t have long, full lashes, this makes them look like they are. It is amazing. My favorite eyeliner is the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel eye Crayon Eyeliner at Sephora for $25.00. It is super black, I like to put it in my lower waterline to give a intense dark look. And my go-to lip has been just a lip liner from NYX and the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss at Sephora for $34.00. It make my lips look glossy and full.
