Five Face Favorites

Five Face Favorites

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

These products are some that I would definitely recommend to my friends and family, so I wanted to talk about them here.  You know when you find something that works perfectly for your life?  That applies to these.

Smashbox Primer Water // I use this spray before my foundation, during, and after all my makeup is done. The scent reminds me of spa and it feels super refreshing. I go in with something more heavy duty to finish off all my makeup like the Makeup Forever Mist + Fix, but this is my favorite spray to use during makeup application. The only thing bad I can say about it is the price- $16 for 1 oz and I can run through a bottle of this pretty fast if I don’t conserve it.

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot primer // This primer keeps my oil away longer than any other I have tried. I hope it is never ever EVER discontinued.

Becca Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector // Champagne Pop in the pressed powder form is one of my favorite highlighters, and this is a sheer liquefied version of it.  If I am wearing a foundation that I want to add some glow to, I do a layer of this all over my face first. This is probably insane since I am super oily, but if I have good primer on and use a setting powder, everything is fine.  Lately I have been doing this with most of my heavier foundations- I’m trying to have plump healthy looking skin rather than cake face. I also have added this to moisturizers when I feel like being sparkly from head to toe.  I’m pretty sure the bottle will last me the rest of my life.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Stick foundation // This foundation is stunning. Like I said, I have been into a glowy foundation look rather than matte.  This has such a pretty finish and has really nice coverage- it evens out all my imperfections without looking extremely heavy.

It! Cosmetics Complexion Perfection #7 brush //  I have been using a wet beauty sponge for applying foundation for the longest time, but one day I wanted to switch to a brush.  This one has been in my collection for a long time, but I was using it for cream contour.  Now that I have tried it on foundation, I am obsessed with it! Not streaky, everything it touches blends so quickly, and it is really easy to spot correct or build up foundation in certain areas.

What are your face base must haves?  Thanks for reading!

    I like that Soap & Glory primer too. I only use it on my oily areas (if I use on the rest of my face it dries out my skin).

    I definitely need to try that primer my skin can get super oily and I hate when my make up melts off my face haha! I love Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer it’s my favorite for highlighting:)
