It’s been a while since I shared a beauty top five! A recent group text with my girlfriends about our favorite foundations got me thinking that I should round up a handful of my best base picks: two multitasking skincare/coverage hybrids; a buildable water-based formula that’s a staple in every pro makeup artist’s kit (and mine); the luxury foundation that’s my go-to for every special occasion; and my #1 budget-friendly pick from the drugstore.
I’m such a sucker for unique product packaging, so the Kaja Roller Glow had me at ‘hello’; but is the newly launched K-Beauty highlighting balm that you ‘paint on’ with an included roller sponge genius, or a gimmick? Let’s discuss.
Last year, I fell in love with warm, rusty oranges with a hint of taupe in my makeup routine; shades reminiscent of terracotta pottery. Here are my top shelf products + make up artist inspiration for the look.
When I read about ‘Yoga Skin’ in Glamour two weeks ago, I was all in on the makeup technique that mimicked glowing, naturally-flushed skin straight out of a workout session. It’s exactly the kind of skin-care-first, no-makeup-makeup routine I’m really into right now, and I couldn’t wait to try it myself with the products in my makeup stash.
Lately, my favorite makeup artists are playing with blues across every shade and texture for amped up evening glam and pretty everyday looks, and it’s making me think I should branch out from the neutral browns, bronze and golds I always wear and add a little color to my eye shadow collection before spring arrives.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to add a little autumn to your makeup routine, may I recommend these $10 lipsticks?
