Gun to my head, pick a primer?

I feel like this would ne the primer. I bought it because of the hype behind it. If I am being honest, it's not my current primer. I think it comes down to what you want out of your primer. Cooler months, this one. It gives an extra boost of moisture, and this time of year, I will take all the help I can get. Summer? maybe the one I actually have at the moment ( I will review eventually). Worth the hype? absolutely

It’s Been a Minute...
Hey Y’all! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted. I got a little stale on content since I’m trying to play teacher on top of everything else—so I figured I’d jump back in today with a fun look. I’m a football fanatic, a diehard Cincinnati Bengals fan, and a Chicago Bears fan (married into that). So, I decided I would mesh my two passions this season and do some NFL Glam on game days! Yesterday’s look was inspired by the Bears. Read on to see what products I used to get this look. Too Faced - Hangover Replenishing Face Primer My skin was screaming yesterday, but I was determined to do this look—sensitive skin be damned! When it comes to primer, my Too Faced Hangover primer saves the day when I’ve dropped the skincare ball. It took down my redness, injected some glow, and made the rest of my look doable. (Spoiler: I have a primer post coming soon!) Too Faced - Born This Way Matte Foundation When it comes to glam looks, I always reach for my Born This Way foundation. I’ve been a huge fan of the newer matte formula, and it was the perfect base for this look. (Shade: Snow) Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer Y’all already know this is my absolute favorite full-coverage concealer. I used it to conceal and highlight with this look. (Shade: Snow) Check our my full-coverage concealer post for more details on this formula. e.l.f. - Retro Paradise Eyeshadow Palette The oranges in my eyeshadow look are from the e.l.f. Retro Paradise eyeshadow pallet. I love the formula, and the colors are super pigmented. Pro Tip: tap that extra product off and go in with a light hand if you’re not used to working with heavy pigments. (Shades: Fuego, Caliente) Beware of fallout! e.l.f. - 18 Hit Wonders Eyeshadow Palette My transition shade and blues are from the e.l.f. 18 Hit Wonders palette. Same formula as Retro Paradise, so tap and watch for fallout. Transition shade: Peachy. Blue accent: Royal. Brow highlight/inner corners: Vibrant. (I LIVE for Vibrant. It’s such a gorgeous, metallic shadow!) bareMinerals - Endless Summer Bronzer Since I went full glam on the eyes, I kept my bronzer simple with this look. No contouring. If you haven’t tried the bareMinerals Endless Summer bronzer, you’re missing out. I believe this was voted one of the best products of 2020–for good reason! This is my go-to for everyday. bareMinerals - Endless Glow Highlighter In the same vein as the bronzer, I kept my highlight simple with the bareMinerals Endless Glow highlighter. The formal is beautiful and, as you’ll see in the unfiltered after-photo, it provides a truly GORGEOUS glow. It’s very pigmented and seems dark in the pan, but I’m very fair-skinned and it leaves me with a stunning highlight every time. There ya have it! My Bears glam look. Let me know if you try it! 😘
