I don’t buy a lot of beauty products unless I stop liking what I currently use, but I started incorporating some new items into my makeup routine that I love! I also haven’t shared a makeup update in months, so I thought it was the perfect time after I went a little crazy at Ulta last week. Would anyone be interested in a makeup tutorial? More people have been DMing about it, so I’m debating right now… We shall see! 🙂 Below, I am listing each product and how I use it! Everything is linked! 🙂
1: Morphe M321 Bullet Crease Brush
Let me just say, these Morphe brushes I listed are unbelievable for 2 reasons. One- THEY ARE CHEAP. I mean under $5 cheap. Two- THEY WORK. The best brushes I have ever purchased! I use this one to blend my crease out after applying with the M431.
2: Morphe M431 Precision Pencil Crease Brush
This is the first brush I use to apply my darkest shade in my crease, and then I blend it out with the M321. (So these two brushes basically go hand in hand!)
3: Morphe M310 Large Soft Fan Brush
If I’m being honest, I’m not sure the exact purpose of this brush. (I could Google it, but I have made up my own uses lol) After I apply concealer, I take my Laura Mercier setting powder and dab it under my eyes to set or “bake” it. Then I dust the excess powder off with my snazzy M310 fan brush!
4: Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette
Well, I have heard rave reviews about this palette for MONTHS, so I’m happy to report it has lived up to the hype! My only regret is not buying it sooner. It also blows my mind that it’s around $12 cheaper than a Naked palette, but has a lot more colors! *Currently wishing I had someplace to wear the blue colors, though* (I swatched them on my arm, SO pretty)
5: Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick (Big Spender)
If I could sell this lipstick like people sell Lipsense, I WOULD. I normally hate matte kind because it dries my lips out, but this is the exception. I want them to make more colors!! (Maybe not because I would buy them all..) Big Spender is perfect for Fall though, it’s a rose-tone!
6: Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer
I am ALL about something that makes my lashes look extra long, and this primer works! To me, it’s better than the drugstore version. I apply then let it sit for a few minutes, but I don’t like it to dry completely before applying mascara!
7: Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick (Bawse)
Refer to #5 for the inside scoop! This color is a great red lipstick because it doesn’t fade or smear much. It’s hard to find a red lipstick that doesn’t wind up all over your face by the end of the day, but this one doesn’t! *Insert praise hands*
8: L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
HOLY GRAIL ALERT. This mascara is the best I have ever used, and it’s $10! It’s like Better Than Sex without clumping. I was truly blown away!
9: Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Liquid Foundation
I had never tried the Neutrogena foundation before doing a campaign with them last month, and yall, I’m SO impressed. I was using Estee Lauder Doublewear (which is great), but it’s pretty thick and expensive. The Neutrogena kind isn’t as much coverage, but I personally like that better since I apply concealer and contour over it! Plus, it helps reduce acne/blemishes, so I am all for that!
10: Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
I loved using my Anastasia primer, but I needed something for dry skin because mine is the worst! It feels like a moisturizer too, and that was a huge selling point for me. It works really well with my Neutrogena foundation too!
