Beauty Report.

Make-up, we either love it or hate it. For most of us, we love it. It gives us the opportunity to enhance our beauty/features and it helps give us confidence. For me, I love make-up; it’s always fun trying out new product and building a relationship with the product you “found”.

I pretty much stick to the same make-up everyday; it’s pretty easy and looks rather natural. I’ve tried the super expensive kind and the drugstore type too and everything else in between… definitely takes awhile to “find” the one mascara you love or the “perfect” shade of pink for your blush. Luckily, I’ve finally found all of my favorite make-up must-haves that I’ll be sticking to for a while! Check out my beauty must-haves (showed my top faves in this post only) that I live by religiously.. Hope you try some of them! xo

From L to R: E.L.F eyelash curler |  MAC 187 brush used for lightweight application of my powder/blush | MAC 130 brush used to apply my foundation/concealer | MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW30 that I apply for under my eyes in an upside down triangle and blend evenly | Benefit Coralista blush; I use two blushes, I always add this one on top because it has a nice shimmer that makes my face glow |  Anastasia Brow Genius Kit in Medium Brown; I used to use Anastasia’s brow pencil but then I found the genius kit and i fell in love! I’ve never liked to fill in my brows with powder, but this product changed my life! It’s amazing! Highly recommend. | Laura Mercier Foundation Powder in NO.7; best powder! Gives you full coverage without looking cake. love love love! | Rohto eyedrops (usually the green bottle); I have to put drops in  every morning before I do my makeup; feels so refreshing plus I love having white clear eyes.

From L to R: Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone IlluminatorI apply it before my moisturizer; gives me an even skin tone and helps my skin look glowy | Dior DiorShow mascara in 090; One of the best higher-end mascaras! Makes my lashes longer and thickens them and it’s waterproof! | MAC blush in Prism shade (I also use MAC creme blend brush in Something Special; Has been my go-to blush for years, literally. It’s a perfect shade for my particular skin tone; it’s not too pink and not too brown. Easy to layer with other blushes. | Wet n’ Wild Retractable eyeliner in Black; I love that it’s easy to glide on and it’s not too black; it’s a softer black making it more daytime appropriate |  Laura Mercier Lip Balm in Berry; gives me the perfect amount of shine and color while moisturizing my lips! | Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer; Love this! I add this before I apply my blush, gives me cheek definition and helps make me look sun kissed ready.

L to R: Marc Jacobs Daisy roll-on perfume; my go-to perfume! This is my 3rd bottle I go through this year! Smells so pretty and fresh! #MJDAISYCHAIN  |  Smashbox highlighter; perfect to brighten up my eyes! | Essie nail polish in ‘Blanc’; white nails are beautiful for summer! All white everything! This ones perfect because you only need two coats and looks solid!

Lastly, I didn’t take a photo of them but I love these products in the slideshow. They’ve made a difference in my make-up routine + face:
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm: I apply it after my moisturizer and right before I apply my makeup. Gives me a radiant look- it brightens and tightens. My fave? It leaves my face feeling so young and moisturized plus it smells sooo good! | Clarins Foaming cleanser; this stuff works! Noticed a difference in my skin within a week! My skin is super sensitive and oily. Leaves my skin feeling ultra soft; a dab goes a long way! love love this | Garnier BB Cream; I haven’t gotten back to wearing foundation since this BB Cream. It’s so light it feels as if you’re not wearing anything! | Maybelline Baby lips in Pink Punch; the perfect pink!

  62. julissa perez Comment #63

    Soooo Before buying any of the high ticket facial items, instead what i did was bought in mini travel sized from eBay of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, Clarins Foaming cleanser, Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator, and the Hope in a Jar moisturizer. I thought I would buy these items to give them a try before spending $60 on each item. and I just LOVE the clarins products and everything else!! thank you for introducing this to your readers!
    I love the way my skin feels so much smoother and evened out.

    thanks julie!
