FENTY BEAUTY POWDER✨🤍👏🏼
FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder I properly have 3 other powders in my drawer that I actually don’t use ever since I bought this. The Fenty beauty powder is my favourite powder.🤍🤍 I not only love the SMELL of this powder. I don’t know what it is, but it smells so incredibly nice, but how it makes my skin look is another plus.👏🏼🤍 It has such a nice texture and when I put it on my face it’s able to smooth out my base makeup. It doesn’t emphasis anything such as wrinkles. 👌🏼👌🏼 I mostly apply this under my eyes and on my smile lines because those are the places I want to make sure is set and in place. What is left over is what I apply on the rest of my face to set my foundation and concealer. ☺️ This routine that I have works so well for me and my dry skin because I don’t want to dry my skin out even more with over setting. So I only apply it to areas that I need and it’s my favourite thing. I have the shade: butter.🤍 LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE TRIED THIS BEFORE?

KAT VON D TATTOO EYELINER? 👀👏🏼
Kat Von D - Tattoo Eyeliner Ok so at first when I tried this I hated it, I honestly can’t remember the reasoning as to why because it was so long ago. BUT... I tried this last night for a party and it stayed on all night 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 I made sure to shake the product first so I could get a good amount of colour out. I NEED IT TO BE SUPER BLACK!! The benefits of this liner is HOW EASY IT IS TO APPLY. 🤍🤍 I’m not kidding, I’m the worst when it comes to applying liner and having both eyes the same, but this product makes it so easy with the tip. 👌🏼 Another good thing about it is that it dries pretty quickly and when it dries it’s not going anywhere. I was sweating all night from dancing and it still managed to stay on and LOOK AMAZING. 👏🏼👌🏼 Though it dries down fast a down side to this would be how hard it can be for you to go back in and try to add more on top of what you already did or to create a thicker wing from what you already had. I didn’t mind it though, but that is something to keep in mind. Overall, I love falling in love with products I thought I didn’t like and this is one of them. 🧡✨

SHADE + LIGHT PALETTE ✨🤍
Kat Von D - Shade + Light Face Contour Refillable Palette This has been my go to, FAVOURITE palette. Not to mention the first ever product I ever purchased from Sephora. 😭🤍 (wow I was such a baby)!! As you can tell I’m a die heart for the middle light shade and the middle bronze shade 😍😍. I use those shades every single time I’m applying makeup to my face for any sort of occasion. I absolutely love how it makes my skin look and feel. My biggest thing when applying makeup is getting products that don’t make me feel heavy or cakey, I hate feeling uncomfortable in my skin and like I just want to remove all my makeup. 😨👀 But this doesn’t do that, which is why I’m using it all the time. The bronze shade matches me really nicely and leaves my skin looking super super flawless at the end. I also LOVE how easy it is to blend in the skin and how easy it is for this product to blend with other products such as my blush and highlighter🥰🥰 it’s honestly the best thing ever. I’m definitely going to get refills on the 2 middle shades because I’m not over using it yet. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants a bronze and highlight shade that is reliable and beautiful when applying it. THIS IS IT!

Favourite highlighter for my skin tone ✨✨✨
Milk MAKEUP - Highlighter This highlighter stick is probably ONE of my favourite ones to use for my skin tone. I have the mini travel size of this that I got as a Sephora gift set, BUT I LOVE HOW MINI IT IS 🥰🥰 it’s so cute aha. The highlighter is a really pretty colour for my skin tone because of the consistency it’s not a powder where it can be drying and glittery and it’s not a more water base where it can be sticky and weird🙃🙃 I love this consistency because it’s the perfect amount and it gives you such a beautiful colour. I have a light to med would probably just define it as a neutral skin colour with a hint of olive under tones and this just emphasizes the glow I already have ✨✨ It’s not a crazy pigment and you can definitely build it up if you want, but I love how subtle it can be with your makeup. It’s one of my favourites and it’s so easy to take with you when you need it. I took it with me on my trip to China and it helped so much with not putting too much makeup on where you can sweat, but having something to make you feel confident and put together. 👏🏼🥰🧡 I love it so much!
Best blush for my skin tone🔥👏🏼🤍
tarte - Travel Size Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush I received this blush as one of Sephora’s birthday gift couple years back and I’ve honestly been using it every single time I wear makeup.👌🏼🔥🔥🔥 I’ve hit pan on the blush and actually recently broke off the lid by mistake 😭😭 THATS HOW MUCH I USE IT. I absolutely love this blush colour for my skin tone. It’s a very cool tone muted pink colour that works really well with my white to med tone olive skin. 💁🏻♀️💁🏻♀️ It makes my bronzer and highlight melt so well together and with the blush to create such an effortless look on the cheeks that I love. I LOVE using this blush with any bronzer or highlight because I know how well the blush will help me blend everything out and mix it together 👏🏼🧡🧡 For those who want to get into blush and don’t know where to start I’d suggest starting with muted colours and the ones that are not crazy pigmented, but still do something and give a slight colour into your skin. I ALSO love adding blush to my nose and around my nose to get it a really nice flush look 🥰😍😍 it’s so pretty. Muted colours especially the nudes and pinks are perfect for my skin tone, which you’ll see in other posts as well. 😝😝

If I could own one eyeshadow palette...✨
PÜR - Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette This has been my favourite palette, I got this in a boxycharm box maybe a year ago and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since.🤍🤍 I never wear makeup everyday and for the days that I wear makeup I’m always gravitating towards this palette. This palette is a neutral palette obviously 😝, but it has some great selections for an everyday day time look and a night time glam look. ✨✨ Applying the matte shadows for day time then the glitters for a smoky look is what I look for in a palette. I love the glitters because it has a good selection as well, going from a light to dark glitter that can work depending on what you want. 😍 The pay off and pigmentation of this is amazing and it is extremely affordable. Drug store makeup and affordable makeup has amazing selections. You shouldn’t be paying more than 30 dollars for a palette. 🙅🏻♀️🙅🏻♀️💰💰 I’ve definitely been the type to spend so much thinking the more I spend the better it is, but my Sephora collection palette that has a good selection of colours but really bad pay off and pigmentation would tell you different. 😭😭 This is the only palette I really do use out of my collection because of how pigmented, affordable, natural, and cute it is. The packaging is so cute and amazing😍👏🏼 for content and flat lays this is everything too aha.

COLOURPOP Super Shock Shadows
COLOURPOP Super Shock Shadows WHAT IT IS? Cream to powder eye shadows. TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: They feel like bouncy powder. They come in matte, satin and my two favorite : ultra glitter and ultra metallic. OVERALL THOUGHTS: If you buy one thing from Colourpop BUY A SUPER SHOCK SHADOW!!!! Seriously the best creme -to-powder eye shadow formula I have ever tried!!! Several of these I’ve owned for more then a year and they still perform beautifully (some of them are slightly drier but some of them are still as bouncy as when I purchased them) , they have great pigmentation and the sparkle in these is absolutely stunning. I apply them with my ring finger as they are super easy to work with and there is almost no fall out. I experience more fallout when I use a brush. The Super Shock Shadows were the first products I ordered from Colourpop and so far it’s my favorite product of theirs. WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I LOVE them because of the beautiful sparkle, pigmentation, affordable price and easiness to work with them. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? 100% YES!!!! There are so many colors and finishes I’m sure you find one or two or ten that you’ll love. IS IT WORTH IT? 0.074oz / 2.1g / $6 So worth it. It’s a phenomenal price and they are also sold at ULTA so you can use their coupons on them.

Fav liquid lipsticks 💋
Anastasia Beverly Hills is a brand I reach out to the most when I’m looking for a liquid lip. My favorite thing about this liquid lipsticks is that they last so long and their pigmentation is very nice! ❤️ I have quite a small collection but I feel like I don’t need more, my favorite shades as you can see are very mauve/orange warm tones since I feel like those types of shades compliment my skin very well 🙌🏼 I love Anastasia and even though they are kinda drying, I like to use them on a night out and top it with a gloss! I recommend this if you dont mind a slightly dry sensation on your lips 😊 My favorite shade is Ashton which is the very top one in the pic!💛 Retails for about $20 the full size 💄 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Liquid Lipstick

HOLI FROG-Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash
One of my new favorite masks!! This mask feels so clean and fresh the second it touches your skin. It also has a slight warming feeling as it sets on. My skin type is dry, so after I wash off this mask I am feeling completely revived. This mask is best used when you would like to give your skin a little extra moisturizing. The texture is super creamy and will turn white once it’s applied all over the face. As I also mentioned before it has a slight warming affect as it sets which is super relaxing. I came across this mask after my mom bought it and had to have it! Are use it once or twice a week. I would definitely recommend to any beauty lover. It is a little pricey for the full size so if you’re hoping to try it and looking for a cheaper option there is a smaller size that you can purchase. 💛FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask

Too faced Foundation
• This was probably the first foundation i tried because all the hype it received and I did end up kinda liking it! My skin looked like porcelain from a distance but from up close you could see a lot of texture on my skin which is not bad at all but I do know other foundations that dont make my skin look that ugly🥴 • Costs $39 dlls for 1 oz of product! I dont think I will repurchase again but if you have clear perfect skin you might like this!💕 Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation
