Hello, and welcome to my second selection for the month of February. Since I constantly travel, I try to carry as few products as possible, which I use for multiple purposes. Not only they keep my makeup bag light, but they’re also some of my favorite products that I use quite often:
1- Fenty Beauty- Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
I absolutely love this product and the color is absolutely gorgeous! It’s the mini version I got with the Bomb Baby lipgloss, which I wear together a lot. It’s a very vibrant and pigmented true golden-champagne color. It also stays true to color when you put it on your lid (for some eyeshadows, the color looks different once it’s applied). I’ve been wearing this color a lot as eyeshadow. It looks beautiful on my olive skin with a smokey eye and a nude lip topped with lip gloss. I cannot say enough great things about this product. I absolutely love it!
2- Benefit Hoola Bronzer
This is an all-time favorite. I haven’t heard of anyone that doesn’t enjoy it. It’s a beautiful, soft, matte bronzer that looks natural on the skin and gives a beautiful sun-kissed look. It could be layered for more warmth, and could also be used for a soft, or more pronounced contour. I also use this product as eyeshadow, transition shade, or under the eyes for a soft, structured look.
3- Nars Concealer in Honey
The year I purchased this product, I had been on the hunt for the perfect concealer. I used to work long hours and slept pretty late at night, thus, my under eye area kept getting darker and puffier. I haven’t used any other product since I started using the NARS concealer. At first I was taken aback by the price; however, it’s worth it since the product is such good quality and lasts for a very long time. I love that the color is quite peachy, which balances out the darkness under my eyes and compliments my olive skin. It instantly brightens under the eyes and applies very evenly. Applying this sparingly is enough to provide the coverage you need. I’ve put this product to the test, especially with my constant flying and it does not budge! I would say this is a very good investment.
4- Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
At first, I didn’t really like the product; but, it quickly grew on me. I almost exclusively use this mascara and I love it. It coats lashes evenly and lengthens them. It doesn’t smudge or flake. I also love the applicator, since you can get very close to the lash line to help lengthen your lashes and make them look darker. Every time I wear this mascara, someone asks if I have false lashes on. I would totally recommend this product.
5- Tarte blush in paaarty
Beautiful nude, rosy color that lasts all day and gives you a natural flush. It lasts all day and looks very natural on the skin. You can also build it up for a more dramatic look, even use it on your crease to bring the look together.
