Current Makeup Favorites

Hey y'all! I haven't done one of these posts in a long time but I am so excited to start them again. I am obsessed with makeup and trying out new products and I want to share with you the products I am currently loving! I will list all the details for all the products at the very end.

These Gerard Cosmetics lip glosses and lipstick are amazing!!! My newest obsession, the colors are insane and paired over the lipstick they create one of the best natural nude lip. 

I have the worst dry lips and it is a constant struggle for me so when I buy lipstick they have got to be super moisturizing. I am IN LOVE with these YSL lipsticks. They are the Rouge Volupte Shine line and I just want to keep them on my lips all day. I love these colors too! :)

Blush from MAC is probably my favorite. Warm Soul on the right I use almost daily but I have been using Lovecloud the last few days and really loving the softer baby pink color for winter.

This Becca highlighter is amazing! I got this recommendation from Jaclyn Hill on youtube. She is my favorite beauty guru and if she raves about a product I always want to try it out. I have stopped using my MAC Soft and Gentle everyday and replaced it with this. This highlighter is a little bit more powerful but I love the gold color it is perfect for the holidays. 

Again with my dry lips I will try anything that has been said to be moisturizing. This is a smoothing and plumping lip product from Christian Dior and so far I am really liking it. Especially paired under my YSL lipsticks. 

I saw these MINI beauty blenders at Sephora and of course I had to try them. AMAZEBALLS! The BEST thing for under eye concealer that I have ever used. It literally blurs all imperfections under the eye. I have been using it with the Instant Age Rewind Below and I LOVE it! 

One of my favorite everyday products is the Philosophy tinted moisturizer. I use it all the time on its own when I don't need a lot of coverage and under my foundation if I feel my skin is needing a little bit more moisture. Unfortunately, I believe they are discounting this product but coming out with something similar to replace it. 
The Instant Age Rewind is a product I have seen a lot on Youtube and I have been wanting to try and just recently bought it. I really love it! It is not heavy and the color is perfect for my under eye. I tend to have a lot of blue and darkness in the inside corners of my eyes and this works perfectly to conceal that.

The only eye primer I use. It works perfectly for me and my oily lids and keeps my eye shadow on all day. 

Bottom Lash Mascara by Clinique. Another favorite that I use everyday. It is great for the fine lashes on the bottom and the baby brush makes application super easy.

I have been in the market for a new medium coverage foundation that will work well with my oily skin in Florida humidity. I went to Sephora the other day and this is what they recommended for me. I think it is new but it is incredible! It dries to a powder finish and I almost don't need to set it with powder {although I still do}. I am still in the testing phase with this one and seeing if my skin has any reactions to it but so far so good. It is a really expensive foundation but in my opinion your skin is the most important part of the whole makeup process and if that doesn't look good nothing else will either. The only thing I am not crazy about is that is has SPF. I prefer my foundations to not have SPF just because I hate the flashback white face you get in pictures but I haven't experienced that too much with this. 

Last product I am obsessed with is this MAC pigment in Blue Brown. Another recommendation from Jaclyn Hill. Very easy to work with and changes colors in the light and how you apply it. A very fun color!
