My October "Go To" Makeup Products (Monthly Favorites)
These were my "go to" products during the month of October. I spent two weeks away from home, and spent alot of time relaxing. If I wanted a fail-proof look this is what I used. I fell back in love with my BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Eyeshadow Palette. It has every thing that I need in a palette; a matte pale shade to set my eye primer, a shimmer shade for my brow highlight, the buttercup shade for the transition, the terracotta shade I placed in the crease and the bronze shade on my lid. I wore this neutral look very often during my vacation and when I came home and didn't want to think too much about my makeup. For eyeshadow primer, I used the Urban Decay Anti Aging Primer -it's colorless and makes me eyeshadow last all day. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is one of my favorites. The shade 51 is a perfect color match for me and it doesn't dry down tacky. If I don't set it, it's fine. I forgot to add in my concealer but I've been using the BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Concealer. I previously reviewed it here. When it comes to setting my under eye, I used the NYC Smooth Skin Translucent Powder. For my brows, I've been grabbing my Mac Brow Pencil. I love the color and formula. The precise pencil makes filling in my brows easy. The Quo Craze Contour Palette is great for warming up my face. This palette isn't too pigmented and I don't have to worry about accidentally over doing it. The Makeup Revolution Hot Spice Blush Palette has great nude shades that can be built up nicely. I brought along a mini Tarte Highlighter in Exposed that I used very often. The mascara that I've been using is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof version. It separates my lashes nicely and adds volume and length. For my bottom lashes, I love the Annabelle Cosmetics Skinny Mascara. The finishing touch for my looks is the Pearlessence Coconut Water facial mist. This facial mists smells lovely, and the nozzle gives a nice even spray.
