Current Beauty Essentials
1. Benefit High Beam
I am so obsessed with this highlighter right now! I've heard so many great things about it, and finally decided to pick up a bottle at Sephora a few weeks ago. It gives me the most amazing shimmer without looking like too much. I love using it on the tops of my cheek bones, down the bridge of my nose and on the tip. My favorite part about it is how teensy tiny it makes my nose look when I put it on, it's literally everything!
2. e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set
Setting my makeup with a mist is part of my everyday routine, but I hate using my expensive sprays when I'm doing a simple look. When I discovered e.l.f.'s setting spray I was hooked immediately. For $3 a bottle, I can literally spray this stuff like crazy without worrying about buying more! It works so well when I'm doing an everyday look, and helps blend my face makeup info my skin for a smooth and natural look, minus the cake face.
3. L'Oreal Lineur Intense Eye Liner in Carbon Black
I am always in search of an amazing liquid liner, and this drugstore pick has made its way into my daily routine. I love the formula of this liner, which goes on really smooth, and lasts me throughout the day. I like to use this liner when I am running late and don't have the time to use a gel formula with a brush, since this one has a felt tip applicator built in. It also shows up as a very dark black on my eyes, which can be a difficult thing to find, especially in drugstore brands.
4. Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer
I struggle with large pores on and around my nose, so I need a heavy duty primer that will make my skin look smooth and flawless under my foundation. I love the silky formula of this primer, and how it minimizes my pores once I press it on! I am usually hesitant to use silky based primers, which can cause breakouts for me, but this one works really well with my skin, and doesn't clog my pores or irritate my skin.
5. MAC Powder Blush in Peony Petal
I have always been a big fan of MAC blushes, and Peony Petal is currently my favorite color from the line. I have been wearing this color so much lately, and I think it looks so soft and beautiful! I love the subtle hints of purple in this pink blush, which works really well with my skin's undertones, and looks great paired with a pink or nude lip!
