For today’s post we figured it was time to present you our second beauty related article! It has been a really long time since we haven’t done one so here is the makeup we used and absolutely loved this summer .
Laura Mercier Setting powder in Translucent: This powder is just amazing. I have been hearing about it for a while but never went and made the splurge until two weeks ago. Since then, I can’t go a day wearing makeup without doing a light baking everywhere I put my concealer. I then use the remaining powder all over my face and swipe the excess off after a few minutes. It keeps my under-eye concealer in place all day and gives it a flawless finish I adore. It also really keeps my face matte, which is something I have been looking for in a powder for a long time. I totally recommend this product to you guys, it is so worth it!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Soft Brown: I also recently bought this classic, wondering what it could have more than a regular Maybelline eyebrow pencil. I wanted to understand the hype, so I went into it with a lot of expectations. I have been using it for a while now and I can tell you it is also a really great product. The pencil is thin, precise and the product goes on smoothly, which makes filling your eyebrows an easy task, which is something I love!
ColourPop Highlighter in Dream Catcher :
I really like this product for its consistency that is in-between a cream and a powder highlighter. It makes it so easy to blend and also gives it a really great pigmentation. The color is also my favorite to highlight on my skin tone since it is more on the golden side, perfect to achieve a great sun kissed look.
Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Light: This concealer is one of my go to especially in the summertime. Because it is so hot outside I like to keep my makeup as light as possible and often I will skip foundation and go straight to concealer. I apply it under my eyes and on my problem areas. I found that it rarely creases on me and that it lasts all day. No need to wonder all day about your concealer looking good with that Fit Me one !
L’Oreal Tru Match Lumi in Golden: This liquid highlighter is becoming one of my favorites! Not only because it gives you a fresh, healthy and golden glow but also because it is so versatile. You can mix it with your foundation for an all-over glowy look, under your foundation for a more subtle glow or apply it on top on your foundation on the high point on your face for a more intense and precise glow. I like to apply it on top of my foundation with a beauty sponge. I sometimes top it off with a powder highlight for a more intense glow.
ColourPop and Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks in Dohe and Craft: These are two of my favorite brand of liquid lipstick. They offer a really smooth and long lasting formula that doesn’t dry out the lips too much. I especially appreciated these two colour during summer when I wanted to add a little something to my looks.
Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in Vintage: I am not a lip gloss lover normally but I can do an exception for this one ! This lip gloss is REALLY pigmented and the texture is not sticky (why I hate lipgloss) and it stays on the lip for a good period of time. This gloss was my go to for more natural days. I really want to own more of those !
