current beauty favorites.

Lets face it! We are girls and we love makeup. I have been experimenting a lot with makeup lately (I wasn't lying when I said I'm a makeup hoarder). My first makeup product purchase was in my senior year of high school (yes, that's when I first started wearing makeup) and guess what it was? Mac foundation! After years and years of using mac, I realized that it wasn't working out for me and so I stopped using it. Ever since then I have been hunting for a good foundation and after some trial and error, I think I may have found it. But before I rant and rave about my favorite foundation, I will talk about my other beauty faves. 

1. L'Oreal Gel Liner- y'all, I'm seriously OBSESSED with this stuff. I'm usually switching eye liners left and right but ever since I discovered this (which by the way, was a long time ago), that's all I have been using.

2. Beauty Blender- if you don't have one, do yourself a favor and get one ASAP. It makes applying your foundation 10x easier. It's a bit pricey for a makeup sponge but seriously, it's worth every penny (buy it here)

3. MAC blush in coppertone- okay I won't consider this my "holy grail product" but I've been using this blush for years and I keep repurchasing it when I run out. I don't know why but it's almost like I'm afraid to try a new blush (weird, I know).

4. L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara- I am blessed with long lashes already but this mascara makes my lashes extra long. This is the best drug store mascara, IMO. I have a couple high end mascaras that I use but lately, I have been reaching out for this mascara while getting ready.

5. Makeup Forever (Mat Velvet +)- so I mentioned earlier that I had been on a hunt for a good foundation ever since I stopped using MAC. Well, this is it. I have been using this for quite some time now and I am loving it. One problem I had with MAC was the fact that my makeup would oxidize shortly after applying it. It was extremely annoying to constantly have to blot but thanks to this foundation, I don't have to do that anymore! This foundation stays put for as long as I wear it. With that said, I know everyone's skin is different and what works for one person may not work for another. So, in that case, the best thing to do is to get a sample first.

6. MAC Lipstick (Lovelorn)- lastly, I'm really enjoying using this lipstick. I don't usually wear lipstick until it's for a special occasion but this is the perfect pink for every day use. 

So, this is it for my current beauty favorites. What are some of your beauty faves?
