Happy Thursday, friends!! I have been MIA on here for a few months. I was having a difficult time juggling building up my instagram account, working full time, and making quality blog posts so I decided to concentrate on building up my Instagram account first but I think I have found my groove again!! Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite beauty products! I did an Instagram story last week to see if any of you had tried Benefit’s They’re Real mascara and about 90% of you said NO!!! This is my all time favorite mascara! I like my lashes to look super long and I’ve tried a ton of mascaras that are just okay. This mascara from Benefit makes my lashes look SO incredibly long and I absolutely love the brush that comes with it. It’s $25 and I’m linking it for you here.
Next up is my all time favorite lipstick! I was never much of a lipstick wearer until recently. I will occasionally do a bright red for when the KC Chiefs play, Christmas or Valentine’s Day but I just love sticking with an everyday nude lip color. Charlotte Tillbury’s Pillow Talk Matte lipstick is 100% my favorite lipstick of all time. It is the prettiest color everrrrr! It’s a little pricey but IMO it’s totally worth it! Linking it up for you right here!
Let’s talk foundation. In the past I have just bought drugstore, cheap foundation and I never loved how it looked. Y’all there is a reason why good makeup is so expensive!! I can’t say enough good things about Estee Lauder’s Double Wear foundation!! I use color 3N1 – the Ivory Beige. It is such good coverage and it literally lasts all day long. When I used to use the drugstore brands I would look like a hot mess at the end of the day and all of my makeup would just look terrible. After a long day at work I can honestly say that my makeup is still intact and my foundation is still in place. Not only that but my bottle will last me around 3+ months!! You can grab yours right here!
Last, but certainly not least, is my all time favorite concealer. My genetics have not been good to me in the under the eye area! I get really bad bags and dark circles very easily under my eyes so concealer is probably one of the most important pieces of makeup I have! Tarte’s Shape Tape is so insanely AMAZING!!! I don’t know how many people used to tell me how tired I always looked before I started using this stuff. It seriously brightens up underneath my eyes and makes it look like my bags and dark circles are pretty much nonexistent! Huge lifesaver for me! You can grab it here!
