Beauty Products I Recommend You Trying
I heard such great things about this primer that I finally had to force myself to get it and try it out. My makeup not only looked good on my skin, but my skin felt so amazing! As I was applying the primer on my face I felt like I was applying another layer of a hydrating moisturizer. Before you get scared off, it was not oily and I didn’t find my skin to be oily afterwards. My powder foundation went on with no problems and looked smooth and even. It kinda reminded me of that “botox” filter on snapchat that makes you look 100 times more beautiful haha. There is a fresh lemon fragrance but it disappears and fades after applying which is good for me b/c i’m super sensitive to scents.
I have been using this powder foundation for the last year and it is definitely a favorite of mine. When I travel to Hawaii, this is the only face product i’ll bring along with me. I love that it is spf50! I use this on most days b/c it gives a nice even finish and covers up imperfections without looking too overdone.
This under eye concealer has become a favorite. I have some dark circles and this concealer covers dark circles very well and brightens your under eye area. I don’t find it to crease and it lasts pretty much all day. Since using this concealer I rcvd so many compliments on how bright my under eye looks.
This is the setting powder I have been using under my eyes to set my concealer and let me tell you– for $5, this powder is simply amazing! It really does brighten the under eye area and keeps my concealer from moving around all day. I have been exclusively using the Laura Mercier secret brightener for years and I haven’t touched that powder since getting this banana powder. Btw, I love using this setting brush with this powder. It gives a beautiful airbrushed look.
If you are in need of a good rose gold highlighter, get this one! It’s only $10 and it looks beautiful on your cheekbones! One little swipe will make your skin glow! Here’s the brush I use for highlighting my face.
I hope you found this helpful– Below is a quick snap pic I took of myself wearing all of the items mentioned. Again I am super impressed with the primer as a base– it makes my skin look flawless and I LOVE the concealer / brightener powder.
Other Products I’m Loving This Month:
Laura Mercier Velour Puff – This is so nice to touch up with mid day but what I like to do is press in my make up to make sure nothing budges / moves.
Sol De Janiero – This body wash smells heavenly! I literally look forward to taking showers b/c I love the almond / coconutty fragrance. The scent is very strong and will linger on your skin after your shower, but it’s not heavy like a perfume and will eventually fade over time.
Essence Waterproof Eyeliner – This eyeliner is only $2.99 and works great! I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks and so far it hasn’t dried out on me– I heard that it’ll dry out after about a month after using. It’s very easy to use and it doesn’t bleed or smear like other eyeliners. For $2.99, I’m obsessed!
NEW Product I’m Trying This Month:
Origins Mushroom Micellar Water – I’m taking a break from the Bioderma Micellar Water and trying this one from Origins just to see how it’ll compare. I’ve only used it a few times so I want to give it a fair chance but so far it’s not the best at completely removing makeup.
