February 2014 Beauty Favorites!9:00 AM
Hey guys! Today I wanted to share my February Favorites. This month I had a couple of favorite new blush and lip products as well as a new regular foundation. Easy, go-to products we the name of the game for this past month since I did so much traveling, but I'm thankful because it gives me a chance to distill my product choices and know what I really love. Check out the video below!
foundation | bareMinerals Original in Medium Beige
blush | Mac Riri "Good Girl Gone Bad"
eyebrow pencil | Liole Artist Auto Eyebrow Pencil
lip tint balm | A'Pieu Kissable Tint Stick SPF14 PA+
cleansing sponge | boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge With Bamboo Charcoal
I know I talk a lot about liquid foundations but I wanted to mention a product that I always seem to cycle back to every couple of years: mineral foundation. I'm not new to minerals since it was the first foundation type I really got into back when I first started wearing it, but I am new to actually using the original brand Bare Minerals.
First of all, I really love the packaging of this compared to other mineral makeup brands since it makes it simple to add just a bit of foundation to the lid so you can swirl your brush in it. The plastic bit on top twists and locks open or closed. Mineral makeup is always messy so it's a huge bonus in my book.
The color I use is Medium Beige in the Original formula which is just barely tan on me but will be perfect during the spring and summer when I get a little more sunshine. It should be perfect for those with a MAC NC30 complexion.
I haven't tried the whole Bare Minerals system yet (primers? setting powders? blushes?) so I think those will be my next experiments. Maybe some of you Bare Minerals junkies can offer some advice for the best combination for a lasting, smooth look.
Readers, have you tried mineral makeup? If so, what brands? What are the best products to use in combination with mineral foundation? Let me know in the comments!
