Merry Christmas Eve Eve! During the holiday season, I’ve found myself reaching for a few go-to products in my makeup bag. I might be a little biased when it comes to glitter and vampy lips, but I promise you that these products won’t disappoint:
Red + matte is the best formula. I love Smashbox’s matte lipstick line and this color is perfect to amp up a holiday outfit and it seriously lasts for hours. You need this in your life, trust me.
At my last Benefit brow bar appointment, I got a free sample of this concealer in the cutest mini bottle. I love how easily it glides on and how well it covers up my inevitable dark circles.
Yesterday I got a gel mani and instead of veering towards my go-to deep purples, I went for something a little more holiday-inspired va-va-voom. Essie’s “Flare To Dare” polish is the perfect mix of glitter and black. Love. Love. Love.
If you know me, I’m obsessed with watching makeup and hair tutorials. Maybe it’s a new calling for my life – vlogging? I digress. One of my favorite channels to subscribe to is Birchbox’s YouTube. When I found out they released a makeup line – Love of Color (LOC), I knew I had to try their products. My first purchase was the lipstick in “Glam Life”. It’s an ideal of mix of vampy and berry and it’ll go perfectly with any skin tone. Did I mention berry shades make your teeth look whiter? Score.
Sadly, I’m still not the cat eye queen, but I’ve been slowly but surely working on my liquid liner game. When I saw this Alexa Chung liner on a YouTube video, I knew it was going to make its way into my makeup bag. The felt tip is really amazing to easily work a cat eye. Hey, if I’m getting better at it – I can only thank this product!
