Current Makeup Favorites

The makeup products I use are constantly changing. Of course I have my all-time faves, but I also like to mix it up and try new things. For the summer I like keeping things easy, light and natural. Here are a few products that I have caught myself repeatedly going for when I put on makeup (which has been rare). 

Better Than Sex Mascara // This Too Faced mascara is fabulous. It makes my lashes so thick and voluminous. It is also really black, which I love. One thing about this mascara is sometimes throughout the day I find there is a little black below my eyes. To avoid this, I simply use a different mascara on the bottom. The results from the Better Than Sex mascara are too good to pass up though.

Bobbi Brown Eyeshadows // I have been really liking just using one color on my lids, dark eyeliner and mascara, and calling it a day! I either go for a neutral matte look or a shimmery look. The colors I have been loving are this one for matte in Bone and this one for shimmery in Champagne Quartz. 

MAC Paint Pot // The Mac Paint Pot in Bare Study has been a long-time love. I have used this product for years. It also works perfectly under the Champagne Quartz color. I love how it brightens it up even more and makes it last forever. 

Beauty Blender // I recently purchased the Beauty Blender and I love it. It makes my makeup blend perfectly and look so natural. You really can't beat it. I haven't used a foundation brush since. I also have the solid cleanser which keeps my sponge looking good as new every time.

bareMinerals Eye Brightener // I use this under my eyes for a little extra light. I love the glowing skin look that makes me look like I got 12 hours of beauty rest. This product really makes your under-eye area look bright and alive. I have also used it on my cheekbones for a dewy glow. 

Make-up Bag // This little hold-whatever-you-want bag from Dogeared is so cute and fun. I saw this and just had to have it. It holds anything you could possibly need make-up wise, but could be used for so much more. 

I hope this gives you some ideas for new products to try! I really enjoy using less products during the summer, and these are perfect to still accomplish a pulled-together look! I hope you enjoy!
