Smash box Step-By-Step Contour: Smash box Step-By-Step Contour Kit: Such an easy tool + product to contour, sculpt, shape and let your features pop! It includes an angled brush which makes it easy to build and blend. Great for beginners and advanced artists.
Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder: Urban Decay Illuminated Shimmering Powder: This is a beautiful, lightweight, baked powder for face and body with a microfine shimmer that instantly leaves skin with an iridescent shimmer. This powder highlighter is the perfect amount of shimmer, without the metallic look.
MAC Lipstick (color: Sweetie): MAC Lipstick “Sweetie”: This is by far my #1 shade for all of my clients. It looks beautiful on blondes and brunettes and perfect for the summer. It’s a sheer pink with a hint of shimmer.
NARS Blush: One of our favorite go-to blushes that is flattering on every skin tone. This blush offers a translucent, natural tone, with a subtle pink for a natural-looking undertone to highlight the complexion. It’s buildable and easy to layer with bronzers. A must-have!
Urban Decay Naked II Palette: A must-have for every makeup kit. The 12 luminous shades with shimmer and sparkle to the smoothest mattes make it easy to create a subtle day look, which can transition into a dramatic night look. The pigment is rich and the powders glide on so smooth, making it easy to layer and blend colors.
Bobbi Brown Lipgloss: Love this long-lasting, vitamin-enriched, lip-conditioning, non-stick lipgloss. It’s lightweight, but it lasts for hours. It’s a great gloss for those who are starting to wrinkle around the lips. The formula does not seep into the fine lines. Truly, one of the best glosses.
Bobbi Brown Illuminating Powder: I feel like we can all agree that as we age, finding the right foundation and powder coverage is the most difficult part to any beauty regimen. Either too much coverage, not enough, makeup that collects in fine lines and creases, which as a result makes you appear older and pores appear larger. It’s lightweight and infused with a variety of pearlescent pigments in skinetone-correceting shades. Another plus, you don’t have to change your powder from seasons because your skin tone changes. One powder for all year around! A beautiful luminous finish that does not make our wrinkles appear larger than life!
Essie Polish: Essie is my go-to nail care line. I love their colors so much for when I’m doing my nails at home. “Between the Seats” and “Vanity Fairest” are two colors that are perfect year round!
LeSportsac Extra Large Cosmetic Bag: LeSportsac is the ultimate makeup pouch! This extra large bag will hold all of your favorite products and how cute is this is detailed floral print & ‘Hello Gorgeous’ script?!? The wraparound zip opens to a lined, 3-pocket interior.
Maybelline® Dream Lumi™ Touch Highlighting Concealer: Do not sleep on this highlighter! If you need a quick touch up in the day brush it under your eyes, over an imperfection or highlight the bridge of your nose for an instant pick-me-up! It applies so smoothly, is very lightweight and long-lasting.
Maybelline® Face Studio Master Conceal™: This concealer is hands-down the best full-coverage concealer you will find at a drugstore. I put it under my eyes in a triangle shape and let it sit for a second then blend with a Beauty Blender. After that I top it off with Laure Mercier’s setting powder. It’s a miracle product!
Maybelline® Eye Studio® Master Precise™ Eyeliner: If you are looking for an easy to apply liquid eye liner then look fo further! This one is easy to apply, has a great rich color and will last all day.
GlamGlow Youth Mud Treatment: Tinglexfoliate Treatment: Fine lines? Dullness? Uneven texture? This YOUTHMUD™ Tinglexfoliate Treatment treats all of those as it moisturizes, exfoliates, and lifts away impurities without disturbing skin’s essential oils. Antiaging ingredients brighten and smooth while delivering a tighter, more youthful appearance with visibly minimized pores.
Supergoop! Perk Up! Lip and Cheek Treat SPF 40: If you run from the gym to happy hour or from play dates to date nights then you need to add this bad boy to your makeup bag! Multi-benefit skincare meets gorgeous lip and cheek color in this bright, energetic shade. This multi-tasking must-have comes in a universal shade and blends “barely there” color for a perfect perk for the lip and cheek. The compact’s mirror makes for easy on the go application!
Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream: New to CC creams? The C’s stand for “color” and “correct” and they are thicker than a BB cream but lighter than foundation. This one is amazing!! It’s an all-in-one sun defense formula covers imperfections and corrects uneven skin while targeting the signs of aging. Potent antioxidants and triple protection from UVA, UVB and IRA rays minimize the signs of photoaging and inflammation.
