Ya’ll know I am always trying new makeup ,but I think I have found a keeper for a while. So I noticed that my old makeup just wasn’t blending well on my face. Unfortunately since I am aging…(frowning face) I needed to look for a different makeup formula that worked best with my skin.
Well, after a trip to Sephora I found the best foundation that I have ever put on my face! So are you ready to hear which one it is?! Yves Saint Laurent in the color B50 HONEY

Everyday Makeup Must-Haves
These are my go to products that I use for my everyday makeup routine. Because of my job I tend to try and wear a more casual look for everyday wear. Although, I will say that I enjoy trying out new products whenever I hear of them! I will list all of these below with a description of each of them. If you have any questions at all don’t hesitate to ask!
PRIMER- Tula Blurring & Moisturizing Primer
I use this first before applying anything else. This will instantly smooth the look of uneven skin tones & redness.
EYE BALM-Tula Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm
This eye balm brightens up underneath your eyes so much. If you have any darkness underneath your eyes you will love this rose gold eye balm. It also has a slight cooling effect that really just kind of wakes you up!
FOUNDATION- Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation
I dampen my Tarte blending sponge and apply this all over my face and neck. I use the color 220 natural beige.
CONCEALER-Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
This is a full coverage concealer that doesn’t crease and it instantly brightens my face. I use my Tarte blending sponge to put this under my eyes and for any hi-lighting I may want to do. I use the color light neutral.
SETTING POWDER- Airspun Loose Face Powder
I use this to set my foundation and concealer. I use a little more under my eyes and just a light dusting on the rest of my face. I leave it on for a couple minutes.
POWDER-Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation
Next I apply this powder with the Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush.
POWDER FOUNDATION BRUSH-Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush
This brush really helps to evenly apply your powder foundation.
BLUSH-Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Blush 310 Peach Passion
One of my favorite peachy pink blushes that looks good on all skin tones. It gives you the perfect sun-kissed finish.
BRONZER-Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Matte Bronzer
I use this to contour my cheek bones & nose. I also apply it to my forehead and temples to warm up my face.
MASCARA PRIMER-Lancôme Cils Booster XL Vitamin-Infused Mascara Primer
Each coat creates an even surface layer to maximize the results of your mascara. It has a conditioning formula so lashes appear longer and fuller. This revitalizing lash primer will improve lash results, thickness and curl over time.
MASCARA-Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara
I LOVE this mascara! It makes my natural lashes look so much fuller and longer. Almost like I am wearing false lashes. I no longer get lash extensions. I just use strip lashes when I am wearing more makeup.
LIPSTICK-L’Oréal Colour Riche Ultra Matte Nude Lipstick
I wear the color “All Out Pout”. I have just recently started wearing this lipstick ,and it is so pretty! I wear it pretty much everyday. Sometimes if I want more shine I will put lipgloss over it.
These are a few of the sulfate free shampoos that I have used, but I also use something different almost everytime. I always like to try something new. I have liked all of these that I have tried. My main goal is to use sulfate free shampoos.
ACV HAIR RINSE-Hairitage an apple a day
This is An Apple a Day Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse that keeps bad hair days at bay. This gentle rinse leaves your hair soft and shiny, and gently cleanses your scalp and conditions your hair without stripping away natural oils essential to your hair’s health. I use this rinse throughout the week instead of washing my hair with shampoo so often.
HEAT PROTECTOR-KÉRASTASE Resistance Blow-Dry Primer for Damaged Hair
I have been using this product for years, and it really has improved the condition of my hair. I use a lot of heat when styling my hair, and since it is already processed it is definitely weakened. I use just about a dime size amount on damp hair before styling it.
CONDITIONING SPRAY-Miracle Leave In Conditioner
I just put it on my damp hair before blow drying.Once again my hair is typically on the dryer side, and it is also very coarse and curly so this conditioning spray really helps me get it shiny and smooth.
HAIR OIL-OLAPLEX No. 7 Bonding Oil
Ya’ll oh my gosh this stuff has been a game changer for my hair! Since my hair is coarse and curly this stuff has really helped to smooth and condition it. This is a bonding oil that works by finding single sulfur hydrogen bonds and crosslinking them back together to form disulfide bonds; disulfide bonds are broken via chemical, thermal, and mechanical processes including brushing and combing the hair; gives hair superior strength by repairing broken disulfide bonds; and anti-breakage properties.
BLOWOUT BRUSH-Wet Brush Heat Wave Round Brush
I use this brush to blow dry and style my hair. I have several brushes like this one ,but this one is my favorite. I would say the size you use depends on the length of your hair ,and the curl you may or may not want. I section my hair into 4 or 5 sections, and then seperate about a 2 inch piece of hair to blowout. I have a lot of hair so this does take a little longer ,but it is much healthier than placing direct heat like a flat iron or curling iron on your hair.
