Every day new products hit the market & I know how overwhelming it is to know what is the best item to go for! They all have really amazing claims but like do they really work ?! After testing out A LOT of products…I have found products that truly are one of a kind. They live up to their exceptions & nothing until today can’t replace them for me! Let’s go over them & I will let you know exactly why are they one of a kind.
BY TERRY BRIGHTENING CC SERUM
I think its been 4-5 years I have been using this serum. It is not a makeup product but since I use it in my makeup routine every day so I had to mention it. It is this beautiful, bronzy, glowy serum that just makes your skin look stunning! It blurs your pores & add a healthy glow to skin. on the days that I’m going make up free this is my best friend. on the days I’m waring make up I mix few pumps of it either before primer or mixing it in with my foundation or tinted moisturizer. It is just beautiful.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I tried this product randomly & I never looked back! It is stunning! the coverage is amazing. While it is not tick like a foundation , the coverage is amazing! It is a lightweight formula that doesn’t mask the skin. it also has SPF! I pretty much use this every day instead of foundation. I prefer the oil free version even tho I have combo -dry skin.
ARMANI LUMINOUS SILK PERFECT GLOW FOUNDATION
Doesn’t need an introduction! Probably you came across almost everyone raving about it! It is because it is fabulous! It is a very lightweight formula that magically has this velvety coverage. easily buildable which is my favorite aspect of it. It is the only day time foundation that I will wear with confidence under sunlight! & for nighttime you can easily add it in layers. it looks flawless in person & in pictures. Other make up products sit on top of this foundation so seamless as well.
MAC PREP + PRIME HIGHLIGHTER
I stopped wearing concealer under my eyes probably a year ago. It just always looked heavy & caky. This under eye highlighter brightens the dark corners while being super lightweight. On no make up days it opens my eyes so well & it also works fantastic with foundation as well. It doesn’t have a heavy coverage but I rather have a bright under eye than caky one.
CHANEL SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL BRONZING MAKEUP BASE
There is something special about the texture & color of this bronzer. It has an orangy undertone so it adds a beautiful warmth to the skin. it is cream but when you apply it it looks like a powder. It necessary doesn’t need setting but for a night out I go over it with a powder bronzer so it lasts longer. It also works great for a no makeup make up look.
MILANI BAKED BRONZER
Another product that I’ve been using for years! This pan literally will last you years(but change it since make up expires) . Just like the Chanel bronzer this one has orange undertone as well. It also has shimmer o if you are not a fan of shimmery bronzers skip this. It doesn’t look chalky or glittery. it just ads a beautiful healthy glow to the skin.
CT AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH SETTING POWDER
Before trying this powder I literally stayed away from all powders. they all felt heavy & made my skin look caky. this is not like the other powders. It truly has an airbrush effect on the skin. I set my entire face with this powder which I used to never do. It helps with the longevity of make up as well as makes skin look smoother.
LAURA GELLER BAKED GELATO SWIRL ILLUMINATOR
Specifically the color gilded honey. It is the most stunning golden shimmer without looking glittery. It adds that glow from within look! For making it more intense just spray your brush with a setting spray & then you will have a blinding highlight!
CT AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS SETTING SPRAY
I have taken naps with makeup on while I have set it with this setting spray & when I tell you your make up will not go anywhere until you wish it I’m not lying! It is the only setting setting spray that not only keeps your make up on for the longest time, it is also the only setting spray that melts your makeup beautiful together.
ICONIC LONDON PREP SET GLOW HYDRATING SPRAY
Years ago when I got my make up done by Hrush, she used this bronzing setting spray on my skin that literally transformed my skin. I purchased it however had a hard time using it because it was heavy & I only used it on night out until I came across this primer & setting mist from iconic London. You can use it on no make up days for a beautiful glow or you can set your make up with it. I LOVE it! I can’t do my make up without misting this at the end! It just makes skin look super luminous & healthy! Specially if your skin is dry you will love this!
ICONIC LONDON DAY TO SLAY EYESHADOW PALETTE
Keeping it in Iconic London family this is not an essential but I have seen myself reach for this eyeshadow palette more than the other ones! It just has all the colors that I go for. It is pigmented & doesn’t have a crazy amount of fall out.
L’OREAL PARIS VOLUMINOUS LASH PARADISE MASCARA
One of the best drugstore mascaras. It adds volume, without looking clumpy. It keeps my straight lashes curled as well. I love how easy it is to work with the brush.
UD LASH FREAK VOLUMIZING & LENGTHENING MASCARA
If we are talking high end mascara this is the winner! It is stunning! It is very dark, separates lashes, adds volume & it is lengthening as well. It is one of the only mascaras that keeps my lashes curled.
CT LIP LINER
in color pillow talk! It is not a life changing product but since I reach for it the most I thought it needed it’s own spotlight! It has a beautiful pinky nude undertone. works fantastic with different color lipsticks & I can overline my lips without it looking harsh with this lipliner.
My lips but better from all aspects. The color is fantastic! it makes my lips look so beautiful, plump & hydrated.
Better than any other beauty sponge i have tried! super inexpensive & blends make up like a dream! Doesn’t soak up product! So easy to clean & doesn’t tear up easily.
SEPHORA COLLECTION BRUSH SET
Pretty much the only make up brushes you need to do your entire make up! Fantastic quality & it is very affordable! They last a very long time as well even tho I wash them a lot! They have a sleek & simple design as well.
