Hey guys! Welcome to another Friday feels where I share what I’m “feeling” this week. (This post contains affiliate links)
Last year sometime, I did a post all about my favorite makeup splurges and I’m back this week with a few new fave products that are tried and true for me (if you missed that post you can check it out here).
Up first is this Dipbrow by Anastasia. Being a blonde, my eyebrows are already pretty non existent, but add in the fact that my hair and hormones have never really bounced back after having kids, and I have the saddest eyebrows you have ever seen. I haven’t plucked them or waxed them in years they just won’t grow. This tinted pomade makes it easier to fill in my eyebrows and looks more natural than using a pencil. Bonus, the blonde color is great as opposed to a lot of blonde pencils that tend to look orange.
The brush that goes with it is a must have too. Just dip the brush end in the pot, apply short strokes and blend it out with the spoolie thing on the other end.
Moving from eyebrows to under eye, you already know I love the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer and if I was stranded on a deserted island, this would probably be the one thing I take with me!
I’ve been using this Becca under eye brightening corrector underneath it lately, and the combo together is amazing. This brightens up the dark circles before you conceal them and it’s basically magic.
My other go to when it comes to eyes is this Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner. It’s like a sharpie felt tip pen and so easy to apply. The skin around my eyes is sensitive and I hate how a normal eye pencil pulls. This makes it easy to get a really precise line.
Another recent fave is this Juice Beauty Phyto-pigment flawless serum foundation. I like this because it’s a light serum and it doesn’t settle into fine lines. You can build this up to make it more full coverage or it’s great light coverage to use on a good skin day. You do need to shake it well before use since it’s a serum. I alternate between this and It Cosmetics CC cream. I like It because it has 50 SPF in it, and the Juice one doesn’t have SPF at all. Although my moisturizer has SPF30 (I’m a little crazy about sunscreen on my face). So, I tend to use the It in the summer more and the Juice for the winter. The It is also a bit more full coverage for the days when I need it.
On to lips – every time I do an instastory (where I actually have my makeup done), someone asks what lip color I’m wearing. I line my lips and fill them in with Rimmel Lasting Finish Stay on Lip Liner in Blushing Nude and follow that up with Buxom Full On Lip Cream in Blushing Margarita. It’s a really nice pinkish nude color and it supposedly plumps your lips. I dunno, but it’s minty and it tingles on your lips a bit, so who knows if it works. Regardless, I like the color and formula.
Ok, last thing I just got this It contouring brush set and I really like it. I don’t do a full on Kardashian contour (this momma does not have time for that), but I do take my bronzer under my cheek bones and across my brow bone with the bigger flat brush and take it down my nose a bit with the smaller brush, and use the other end to apply highlighter to my cheek bones when I’m feeling fancy (I’ll link the bronzer and highlighter below too!).
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and week! I’ll be taking off next week because I’m bringing the kiddos to Florida to visit my parents. Which means I can finally get some decent shots of their kitchen makeover and share them when I get back! Follow along on instagram if you want some sneak peeks! :)
