A Few of My Favorite Things - Makeup Edition

In the last couple of years I've really become obsessed with makeup and other beauty products. I thought I would share some of my current favorites that are a staple of my makeup routine. 

Before I do any of my eye makeup I always use this as a primer, it prevents creasing and keeps my eyeshadow looking fresh. 

I have Urban Decay's Naked and Naked3 palettes and I can't tell you how much I love them. They are neutral enough to go with every outfit and come in a variety of different shades, and they last forever. I've had them for almost a year and use them practically on a daily basis and just have started to make a dent. So far I like Naked3 the best because I think it goes well with my skin tone, but I like my original naked palette when I'm going out or want a darker/bronzier look. I'm hoping to get Naked2 soon to add to my collection. 

My skin goes from dry and flakey to oily throughout the day. It's taken me a long time to find a foundation that helps with both and Tarte's Amazonian Clay is the closest I've come. I like that it doesn't feel super heavy either, nothing is worse than feeling caked in makeup. I apply it with a brush and top it with a high definition finishing powder. 

Another Benefit product I like is the high brow, I use it to highlight my brow arch and on the inner part of my eyelid.

Apparently I really like Benefit's products, because their mascara is also one of my favorites. This stuff stays stuck and really lengthens my lashes. It also doesn't make me look like I have tarantula legs for eyelashes which is always good. 

These are just a few of my favorites, someday I'll have to do a video or before/after. Doing my makeup is so relaxing and therapeutic, so I always look forward to an excuse to get all dolled up.
