Friday Favorite's - Let's Talk Makeup

If you are like me, you looked at that picture and said WOW, her makeup looks great. It is not too much but her skin and face look flawless! I wonder what kind of foundation she wears?

Well ladies...that is one question I get asked most about. My foundation!
And because I love you so all dearly, I want to share with you the products I use.

{Setting a good Foundation}

Let's face it, we all love our makeup looking flawless.
These are the products I use each day to achieve my look.
I have never been great about skin care....I know, I know it's not a good habit but I am getting better. Prom, prom {yes I got that from Khloe Kardashion.}

{First things first...}
Everyone has a different skin type.
I am blessed with good skin. {Thank you Mom & Dad}
My skin is not oily and it is not dry - a good combination of both.
I rarely have break outs.
No I'm not saying that to be a BISH, I am just letting you know so if you have a similar skin type you know these products will work well for you too :)

As I said, I have not been the best at sticking to a skin care routine, but I have recently fallen in love with Bobbi Brown's moisturizer. {Thanks Lacey}
I put it on at night and can tell it has really made my face silky smooth.
This also helps when applying foundation.
 It goes on much more evenly.
I went to the Bobbi Brown counter and asked for a few samples to make sure I liked it before spending all that money on a product I wasn't sure if I would like.
When I am out of my samples I WILL be buying this.
Or I might be going back for more free samples.
What?! I know you do that too!!

Hydrating Face Cream

{Eye Cream}
I think I woke up one day and realized I'm getting old!
 Okay, okay,  I am 24...but it is never too early to prevent the inevitable wrinkles and dark under eyes. I have always heard good things about the StriVectin line and came across an amazing deal at none other than TJ Maxx. 
Do I see a huge difference? No
Would I rush out and buy it again? No
However, this tube will last me a good while.... So time will tell on this product.

Foundation is important because it is what sets the rest of your look.
I found my all time favorite foundation about 5 years ago and have never even wanted to try anything else.

I'm talking about Estee' Lauder Double Wear Foundation.
This is a thicker foundation and literally lasts all day long. I can wear it to work, work out and even for a night out and it always looks fresh.
I have also gotten my close friends, family and even many acquaintances hooked on this product. Ladies, if you have not tried this yet, go to your local Estee' Lauder counter and get them to match your color and give you a sample.
 It is worth every penny!

Estee' Lauder Double Wear Foundation

For those of you that aren't used to a heavy foundation they also make a lighter version.

{Cover Up}
For those annoying dark circles under your eyes or any blemishes you need covering, this concealer does the trick. I also use Estee' Lauder Double Wear for this too. This product isn't thick or cakey like some concealers. It also stays in place and lasts for hours. Not to mention this tube lasts ridiculously long.

Estee' Lauder Double Wear Concealer

This really sets your look
If I am not wearing powder I just don't feel complete
I like to use a pressed powder vs loose powder....really because I don't like the mess loose powder leaves. I apply my powder with a brush instead of the sponge it comes on with for a less heavy look.
Again, I use Estee' Lauder.
Are you seeing a trend?
I'm obsessed with the Estee' Lauder Double Wear line!!

I'm with you on the DW makes your skin look flawless, so glad you recommended it! It's my "Sunday" foundation. Lol

  7. I would love to look like that model! But seriously her makeup is flawless! I would love love love to have my makeup look that good everyday! Thanks for signing up for my giveaway! Eeek ! Can't wait to follow along with your blog! Have a great weekend! xoxo

  8. i really want to start wearing make up more. i just have never cared, but sometimes when i'm going out for a "big night" i wear eye makeup and lip stuff but i never knew how to do foundation and i think it could make a big difference! so i'm definitely loving hearing about all the different kinds of foundations people use! thanks for the suggestions! i also just started wearing night-time moisturizer + eye creams (turned 27 on monday! gahh!!) and while i cant tell a difference with the eye cream (maybe it just prevents more wrinkles??) the nighttime cream makes my skin feel wonderful!! i dont like regular lotion because i feel like it leaves a sticky lotiony feel, but i looove moisturizer! lol .. .now that i've left a novel! have a great night!

  9. I love hearing about what kinds of makeup people use. You're tempting me with your rave reviews of Estee Lauder, though I'm pretty attached to Bare Minerals. I'm all about trying new kinds of makeup though--if only it weren't such an expensive hobby!

    Found you through the Bargain Blonde's linkup. :)

  10. I have been using clinique makeup for about 6 months and I love it but now I want to try estee lauder! I just may go get matched. What about lipstick? I have the hardest time finding a good lipstick.
