Makeup Favorites

I love trying new beauty products. Make up is so different for everyone, but I wanted to share a couple of my favorites with you. 
The YSL Highlighter is a recent find and I’m obsessed. It’s perfect for under your eyes and highlighting different areas around your face. I’m working on a “how to” on highlighting for various face shapes. If you are new to highlighting and contouring you will love it!
I switch back and forth between the NARS Stick and the Stilla Pigment for blush depending on my color and mood. The Stilla Color Pigment is actually an eye shadow but I use it for both. It gives a bright fresh color that blends really well. 
The NARS Stick is another multi use stick (lipstick, shadow, blush). I have recommended it to a couple friends and they were having troubles blending it, so a little tip, apply a swipe to your cheeks then use a blush brush to blend it in and smooth out color.
Anastasia Brow Wax / Brow Pencil (Brunette) / Brow Shadow (Dark Brown)
I came across this line a couple years ago and it is my favorite. All their brow products are the best. My brows have a hard time staying in place. I use the Brow Wax stick before I apply my brow pencil or shadow and it helps keep the little random hairs in place. The brow highlighter is another one of my favorites (didn’t fit on my board 🙂 I use it as an eyeliner as well as a highlighter. They also have great stencils have you have problems shaping your brows. 
I keep my eye’s pretty basic as far as shadows go. This matte palette has all the best shades to get that natural eye look. 
The Stilla Eyeliner is another new find as well. I used to use a brush to get a more precise cat eye but I have fallen in love with this Stilla wand. It’s easy to use and makes a straight crisp line. 
I am so indecisive with mascaras. I switch these up pretty consistently. Right now I’m loving this Estee Lauder one. I mix it with a YSL sample mascara I got in a free gift. What mascaras do you use? I am always looking for new ones to try. 
What are your favorite beauty products? Any of the ones above your faves too?
On a completely different note, I will be selling some of my clothes this weekend at ILY’s Fashion Blogger Market. I would love to meet you! Also half the money from my sales will be donated to St. Jude’s Children Hospital. Hope to see you there!

  2. Love the ideas for beauty products! I try various mascaras too!! I’ll have to try the one you suggested. Right now I’m trying the Their Real by benefit and like it a lot!

  3. I have to breakdown and buy Anastasia’s Brow Line. Everyone raves about it! I am in love with Smashbox. Currently loving the CC camera ready cream.


  4. I really want to get the naked basics palette. It seems like the perfect traveling palette.

  5. Ooh I definitely need to try that brow pencil, great picks! 🙂

  6. I used to always use the Anastasia brow wiz, and it started to get so costly! I found the Maybelline brow pencil/spoolie brush combo works just as well, and it can be sharpened, and it’s 1/3 of the price! 🙂
