Even though I am more of a clothes person than a make up guru, I still enjoy finding great make up. I like easy make up, that makes my life simpler. I am all about simplicity. (Or at least, I like to think that I am.) Anyways my 3 favorites and go to’s have been the same for awhile.
1.) Urban Decay Perversion Mascara “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.”
I got mine for $23 at Sephora but it seems as though it is $23 around the clock. Whether you buy it at Ulta, Macy’s, Nordstrom, or wherever it’ll be $23. Hooray if you find it cheaper somewhere else! 🙂
But this stuff rocks. It’s main goal is to lengthen. It truly does with just a couple swipes. From my experience, it stays on all day and I don’t have to reapply for any evening plans, which I normally do with other mascaras. It has a very quality brush as well.
2.) Elf Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter
This $3 magic stick works wonders. Yes, that is $3.00. Elf is amazing. I’ve always been a fan of Elf. They have pretty good make up for such reasonable prices. Which is perfect for a gal like me that likes make up but not enough to drop my whole paycheck on it. Places I buy Elf are usually Target or Walmart.
First I do about 3 to 4 dots of the concealer under each eye. Then I blend it with this I know it needs to be cleaned, but hey, I use it! Once that is blended in, I do about 4 to 5 dots on top of that of the highlighter. Then blend that in with the blender. Then to make it look more natural I finish the look using my finger as a blender. Ta-dah! Bye bye tired eyes and black circles!
3.) Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
This palette is usually about $54. But it is worth it. Typically available at Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s, or Nordstrom. Not only is it so satisfying to open and look at but it looks good on your eyes, so that’s cool too. I’m sure you have all heard about the Naked eyeshadow palette’s but I wanted to give you my take on them, specifically the smoky one!
Here she is! I’ve had this for about a year and in my bias opinion I’d say it still looks pretty good! These palettes last.
My favorite shadows to use are high, dirtysweet, whiskey and thirteen. High & dirtysweet are on the far left and whiskey and thirteen are toward the right. Whiskey is the dark brown one.. surprise! And thirteen is the far right. These are the ones I use most frequently and I change it up with them.
I love to do whiskey in my eyelid crease for a little bit of a bolder look. I don’t know that I would ever consider my eye make up to be very “bold”, though. I love to use thirteen under my eyebrow above my eyeshadow. Then I mostly use high and dirtysweet as the main eye shadow. Just a great versatile palette overall.
Woowho!!! Those 3 products make me pumped to do my make up. I would highly recommend all three of them. But just know that I am in no way shape or form a make up artist, but I LOVE these three products. I have plenty of other favorites but these three are my top favorites. Let me know what your beauty product favs are!
You are loved.
