When it comes to makeup, I am a minimalist. Whether it’s a day at work or a wedding, you can most likely find me with the same face of makeup, maybe a bit more eye shadow or eyeliner. I thought I would share a few of my favorite items.
Iope cushion makeup – here
My Mom and I have been going to a Korean spa in Illinois for years now. The rituals at the spa are a lot different than an American spa, but it is so fun to experience a different culture. If you are up to date with skincare, you know that the Korean skin care is killing the game! When we go down to the spa, we usually stop at the Korean grocery store next door called, H Mart. There are a few retail stores in the grocery store, that is where we get our skin care. I was turned onto the cushion foundation about a year ago. I love it! I have gone back and forth with foundations but always seem to come back to this one. It is long lasting and has a 50 SPF included. When I am unable to get down to the store, I buy it online. I am very fair and use shade 32.
Nilota with lipstick – here
I teamed up with Bond No. 9 New York a few months ago and was SO pleased when I received Nolita! It smells SO amazing. My coworker even bought it because she smelt me every day with it. Imagine a feminine mix of florals and fruits but with a soft musk after tone. Bonus, when have you ever received a lipstick with your fragrance purchase? The answer is never! I have been wearing Bond’s other fragrances for years, they are amazing and not everyone knows about them, so you are not the typical Light Blue clone walking around.
Too Face Chocolate Bronzer – here
I was hooked onto this bronzer when it was recommended at Sephora. It is a popular kind and it is literally made with chocolate. I love the smell of it and the caffeine wakes up my skin!
Lancome Hypnose Mascara- here
This Lancome mascara is another product I have been using for years. I try new products but always go back! I highly recommend the eye make up remover and the Cils Booster XL (white bottle, think primer for mascara) is a must. Shop it here!
Nars Orgasm Blush – here
I just started using this blush, yes, I know I’m about ten years late. However, now I know why this best seller is so liked. The color is just perfect. I received the small size as part as my Sephora rewards, score.
