My Spring Time Beauty Favorites

Hello Readers !

Today I decided to share all the things I’m currently loving for the spring !

Face
Maybelline’s Baby Skin – Apparently this is supposed to be a pore minimizing primer, I personally do not feel like it minimizes my pores but it does make my skin look super smooth. It’s an okay primer especially since it’s only about $6 at Target. Some people don't need/don't like primers, I'm just not to fond of feeling foundation or tinted moisturizer on my skin so I really like to use one to create a barrier. 

Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream – I LOVE this BB cream! I’ve been using it since last spring and its so great. My only issue is that it only comes in 3 shades and I already use the darkest shade so when I’m tanned I can’t use it . BOOO :( 

Revlon Photo Ready Pressed Powder – I also have been using this for about a year and its great to set the bb cream that goes with it or any tinted moisturizer and foundation you own. It has as a little bit of shimmer in it but it goes on completely matte on the skin.

NARS Orgasm Blush – HOLY GRAIL BLUSH! I’ve had this blush for what feels like forever, it’s the first blush I ever purchased and I JUST hit pan the other day. I gives your skin a natural flush to it, if your looking for a blush to give you a nice flush and glow this is the one. It has a shimmery-ness to it unlike NAR's Super Orgasm that has bits and pieces of chunky glitter. 

MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skin Finish – I just got this the other day and let me tell you it is worth the hype. I’ve used it to highlight my cheeks, bridge of my nose, and cupid’s bow; it leaves your skin with this beautiful goddess like glow. It also makes a very nice simple eyeshadow! 

MAC Prep & Prime in Radiant Rose – I heard about this from my favorite YouTuber, Jaclyn Hill. I use this to brighten underneath my eyes, but keep in mind that this is extremely sheer, so if you have dark circles you would have to use concealer and then use this. This is perfect for when I’m kinda in a rush and just want to lighten underneath my eyes, I just slap some on, blend out, and BAM instant bright under eyes!

Eyes
Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara (Waterproof) – This has got to be my favorite mascara ever! If I had to choose one mascara that I had to use for the rest of my life it would definitely be this one. It separates my lashes beautifully and it really does not clump. I use the waterproof version because it doesn't smudge making it the perfect mascara for those lower lashes. This is also the first waterproof mascara I’ve used that doesn't take forever to remove. 

Dior Show Mascara – When I’m feeling fancy and want to make my lashes look fuller, I use this baby. This and my CG Clump Crusher go so well together! It honestly looks like I have a set of natural looking falsies on.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette – I really love eyeshadows, but I never owned any of the  larger Naked palettes except the small basics one. As soon as I saw the YT video for this I knew I had to have it. I think that pink and blush colored eye shadows look so beautiful on brown eyes. The amount of looks you can get out of this palette is endless, you can do something very natural for daytime or something sultry for an evening engagement.

Lips
MAC Cremesheen Lipglass in Fever Isle(LE) – This lipglass was part of MAC’s Tropical Taboo collection that was released last summer, it’s the perfect poppy shade for spring. It has very subtle shimmer and is not too sheer but not too opaque either.

Vaseline Rose Lipbalm – This is amazing. It smells great and leaves a little rose tint on your lips. Earlier in February, I was looking for a lip balm that would keep my lips hydrated and soft, out of all the lipbalms I tried this one takes the cake. My obsession with EOS lipbalms has ended and I now have this little tub of goodness in all my bags. YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE.

Tell me what are you're loving for spring ! 

Thanks for reading ! 

xoxo,
A
