Beauty/Skincare Favorites

Today I’m sharing with you some of my current beauty and skincare favorites. I don’t do beauty posts very often – I’ve typically been much more of a utility shopper for makeup, and tend to buy the same favorites over and over again.

Make Up Forever HD Blush: I bought one of these a few years ago, and these are still my favorite blushes – I just keep adding new colors. This one is #410 – a universally flattering coral shade. Another item that I just apply with my fingers – I don’t have a brush for this at all.

MAC Eyebrow Definer: I’ve recommended this eyebrow pencil multiple times on the blog, and it’s still my favorite. I always have at least 2-3 backups ready to go. My go to color is Lingering, and its a universally flattering shade to anyone with brown/black hair. Continue Reading
