Every couple of months (or weeks) I like to refresh my makeup collection. I have been a long time loyal fan of mac cosmetics, but as I have gotten older i am appreciating brands that are more natural looking and just enhance your beauty. Mac sometimes seems way too heavy for my very sensitive and fair skin. For about a year now I have become a huge fan of Stila cosmetics, especially their one step primer. I now cannot even put any makeup on without first applying Stila's one step primer...and yes it makes a huge difference.
Recently, after hearing so many positive things about Benefit's under eye products, I decided to stop by their counter and have a professional help me. I purchased the Ooh La Lift instant under eye brightener and I absolutely love it. Top that with Benefit's boi-ing under eye concealer then apply make up. As a last step, apply Benefit's eye bright stick to the corners of your eye for an instant pick me up or really anywhere that you think needs a little bit of brightening.
Finding the perfect eyeliner has to be my ultimate goal when it comes to beauty products. Trying different eyeliners from all different brands is my number one weakness. I have many different eyeliners from almost every cosmetics brand on the market. I am not a fan of liquid eyeliner. I know everyone says its the best, but it's just not for me. I end up looking like a clown every time I have tried to use it. My biggest complaint about eyeliners is when they smudge, smear, or wear off easily. The bad girl waterproof liner from benefit does none of the above. It goes on perfectly smooth and lasts for hours and hours! I am so happy with it! The professionals at benefit also recommended their newest mascara "They're Real!" Though I am loyal to Cover Girl for mascara, (yes, I prefer it to Dior Show mascara) I purchased the Benefit mascara to give it a try. Not only does their mascara make your lashes extra long, but my favorite thing is that it separates your lashes, no clumps!
Benefit's bluff dust has saved me from embarrassment probably over a thousand times. No, I am not exaggerating. This powder is a miracle! It's super light and you feel as though you don't have anything on at all. Due to my fair, sensitive skin I often get red patches or blush easily. This bluff dust helps conceal all redness, while illuminating your face. For me it's an everyday must.
Finally, the most classic of them all, Nars Orgasm blush. Do I even need to give an explanation? The perfect pink blush for almost any skin tone. This blush is uber popular and that's because it is the perfect color. I have been using it for years and will most likely continue to use it for years.
