Today I want to showcase the tried and true beauty items that I’ve found to work consistently and can therefore highly recommend!
Big Girl Cosmetics Dual Foundation in #45 – I’ve used this foundation all summer because it’s light enough to not make me sweat or feel bogged down like liquid foundation during these HIGH temperatures, yet provides good coverage for my dark spots/skin imperfections. Generally I use it dry straight out of the compact, but you can wet an applicator and apply it like that for a more dewy look, hence why it’s a “dual” foundation. It comes in a wide variety of shades so check them out.
Covergirl Lash Blast – I’ve tried a bajillion mascaras out, from Dior Show to Rimmel Bold Curves and many more in between, but I have settled on loving Lash Blast. When I first started using it, I was underwhelmed, but I noticed the amazing lashes that my best friend had and she swore by Lash Blast. I’ve figured out to just keep applying and the lashes will POP. I love the brush, that was a selling point because I feel that it separates the lashes so that they don’t clump.
Make Up For Ever Lipstick – I can not sing the praises of their lipsticks enough! The Blue Red 205 color is one of my favorites ever because it is a rich red that makes your teeth look whiter with the blue undertones (doesn’t look blue on, it’s just a more rich red than say an orange red). I’ve just ordered more of their lipstick and know that I will love that too! It’s highly pigmented, smooth and creamy, long lasting….can’t ask for more than that!
Big Girl Cosmetics Diva Gloss – I love these because they don’t need chap stick or something under them because they are made with vitamins A and E for moisture. They also don’t give that nasty looking gloopy string between the lips while talking, HATE that! My favorite color is the Bling Diva, Diva’s Peach is fun too. All of the colors can be sheer with a touch of color or build up for more color. Good for everyday type looks to school or the office.
Naturally Victoria’s Secret body polish – I love the smell of this product and it leaves my skin silky smooth and soft! When I wash my hair, while I’m letting the conditioner soak in, I’ll do a body polish and the results are fabulous.
Sabon Body Oil in “Musk” – I love to spray an oil on after a hot shower, letting it sink into my skin and making it touchably lush. Well this is the oil for the job! It has a sexy warm scent, feels good, smells good, win win win! The bottles look like they belong on Marilyn Monroe’s vanity or something, so chic!
Big Girl Cosmetics Ginger Almond Body Butter – If you can’t tell, I like reallllly silky skin! This body butter is my favorite because it smooths on easily, leaves me smelling DELICIOUS, and has everyone rubbing on my arms, lol. If you don’t mind being accosted by all of your friends, then I’d suggest slathering this on, especially since fall is coming and the skin tends to be dryer in colder months.
There ya have it folks, some of my faaaavorite beauty items!! What are some of yours?
