Snag these Beauty Products!
As a freelance makeup artist (and a woman who seriously can't get enough of this stuff!) I'm always testing out new products and stocking up my makeup kits. One of my favorite makeup trends for Spring 2013 is SKIN! Yes, we've seen it before but have we really had enough of it? Will we ever have enough of it? Skin is the first step to creating a beautiful and perfected makeup look. Anyone who knows me personally or has worked with me knows that I am strongly focused on two things, skincare and tools. If you don't have a good skin regimen causing you to dislike your skin or experience irritations, break outs etc... and if you also don't have the proper tools to apply cosmetics, then does it really matter how much pretty and colorful makeup you own? "If you don't love your skin, you're not going to love anything you put on to it." I've said it a million times and I'll say it for the rest of my life.
Skin has its own independent status and in my opinion, AS IT SHOULD BE. I'm also loving the overly dewy, fresh, and floral cosmetic looks. So here you have my top picks for creating just that!
1- Nars Copacabana Illuminator for a beautiful dewy glow.
2- A soft, elegant, and fun pink lipstick. Dior 'Cherie Bow'
3- A foundation that gives great coverage but doesn't look like foundation! Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Finish Foundation SPF 15
4- A blush to compliment the pink lip and help the face look fresh. Go for something that will stay throughout your busy day like MAC's Prolong Wear blush in 'Office Hours'
5- Pump up the volume with the MAC's new mascara 'In Extreme Dimension Lash'
6- Keep your lips moisturized and supple with my favorite EOS Lip Balm in 'Sweet Mint'
7- Show off your brows with these duo brow palettes from MAC- Brow Duo: Brunette
