I have a lot of favorites this month! From make up, skin care, and even some tools! You may have read a few in other blog posts. But they all are worthy of being on this list! This post is for Makeup and later I will post my skincare favorites!
April Favorites – Makeup
Guerlain Terracotta Pause d’ete Bronzer – This is so pretty, and warm, and buttery, and wonderful. and love love GUSSSHH love! This is limited edition for summer 2016, so if you are obsessed with terra-cotta bronzers you need to check this out.
Chosungah 22 Lip Tint in Cashmere– I did a review on this earlier and I stand by my thoughts on the lipgloss side. But the tint is amazing and I have been wearing it all the time. I was thinking of buying a second to keep in my other purse as well. SO GOOD. You can buy them at Sephora
Anastasia Glow kit in Gleam– I love them both but Gleam has been the one I am reaching for the most. The pans are nice and large, and the colors are beautiful. I use crushed pearl the most but love to layer starburst and Mimosa as well.
La Mer the Concealer in Light– OK, I know this is pricey for a concealer ($70) But hear me out. Clea de Peau’s famous concealer is just as pricey and I can promise you this is just as good if not better. I have NEVER had a concealer work as well as this one. No creasing (and thats without me baking) Goes on like a dream, and lasts all day. It’s a little drying but thats not to bad. overall this concealer is a champion and I am obsessed!
IOPE Air Cushion XP #N21– This is such a nice formula. Looks very flattering on my skin and lasts all day. I love the way my skin feels when I wear this as well. I have been wearing this almost everyday.
YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ – Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 in Beige Ultimate- Love love LOVE this color, and formula. This is such a flattering neutral color it goes with everything! Feels nice and moisturizing on, and looks amazing.
E.L.F Eye Brow Duo Kit in Medium– This has to be one of the nicest (and most inexpensive) eye brow kits. It works and blends like a dream and is so affordable ($3). I have been using this everyday!
- Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1993
- Peripera Water Lip Tint in Mandarin Juice
- Holika Holika Jewel light Under eye marker
- Too Cool for School Dinoplatz UFO Multibox
I went to the mall to exchange a product at Sephora. I got the Benefit POREfessional primer which I love, but I have to many primers, so I wanted to exchange for something I needed. Another Cleansing oil! I also ran into Neiman Marcus and picked up 2 fun products too!
- Tatcha Cleansing Oil
- La Mer Cleansing Gel
- Guerlain Terracotta Pause d’ete Bronzer
Ok, I wanted to try out La Mers cleanser forever and since I just ran of my cleanser and figured I would give it a go! Also I wasn’t planning on getting this bronzer but I walked past it when I was paying for the cleanser and I was like what is that!!?
LOOK AT THAT!
here is a swatch
it has such a lovely warmth and shimmer to it.
So excited to use this! UGH I love Guerlain!
I love me some good base makeup. But since its so hot, sticky and humid in florida, all my makeup will melt off if I don’t have a good primer. Over the years I have tested out dozens and these are some old, and new favorites. I am only listing 3 but I have a couple more I really love as well. I choose which to use depending on the type of makeup I am wearing, to how fancy the event or place I am going is.
in no particular order
Face Blur from Etude House
This is my go to, especially on days I don’t wear a lot of makeup. Leaves a flawless finish (no pores OMG), has nice SPF, and more importantly helps my makeup last perfectly most of the day. However if it is STUPID humid outside I might not go for this one, but thats because it gives me 6 hours of wear on my makeup rather then 8, so its still pretty nice! Also inexpensive!!! ❤ love that
L’Or Pure Radiance Face Primer from Guerlain
It’s no secret Guerlain is one of my favorite brands for makeup and skincare. I could gush for days about all the things I love from them, but I will just gush about this for now. THIS PRIMER IS EVERYTHING. Like E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! Its firming, minimizes pores, glides on smooth and makes my makeup look spectacular all day! It also gives a nice glow to my face. The only reason I don’t slather this all over myself everyday is the price tag. So I save this for when i am using more expensive makeup, or do a super full face of makeup. still so good!
Pro-Prime Light Optimizing Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 from Nars
I love this one because it is so good for everything. Nice SPF, gives me the illusion of not having huge pores, makes my makeup stay on nice and long, and has a nice lightweight finish.
Those are my favorites but I do have a few more. But I usually go with these! They all work extremely well, and I would recommend any one of them!
