I have decided to share a little about the things I normally reach for when I do my makeup in the morning, so here you go!
The next thing I reach for is #2. Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller for under my eyes this stuff is amazing, this is my second one of these things and they last forever. Next is #3. NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer to cover any little red spots I have after everything else. This stuff is pretty cheap and I really love it (you can see more in my Ulta Haul). Last on the base part of my routine is #4. Physicians Formula Youthful Wear in Creamy Natural. Honestly I went through one of these already this summer and I prefer the NYX Stay Matte Powder but Ulta is on the other side of town and not very convenient. But the Physicians Formula can be found at Wal-Mart and other various retailers.
Next is #5 Wet n' Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Bikini Contest and to be honest this stuff still scares me I feel like it is way too dark sometimes, but it was $3 and worth a shot. Generally I get some on a brush and then tap it off a little on the sink before I put it on my face (no need to look crazy). #6. is L'oreal True Match Blush in Precious Peach. I put this on with a smaller blush brush because it is pretty light, but it gives a nice hint of color.
#7. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original. I originally didn't want to buy this stuff just because it is $20 for the tube and I just couldn't convince myself it was worth it. But one of the ladies at Ulta said she had bought it about 4 months prior and she had barely gone through any and it is so true! I bought my tube in January and I still have at least half of it left. You only need a tiny tiny bit for it, and it keeps the eyeshadow put! I had always had a terrible problem with creasing, so take it from me I had tried everything!
Next is #8. NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Blonde more of that is in the Ulta Haul as well. #9. is my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (I will come back to this in just a moment). #10 is a Wet n' Wild Coloricon eye liner in Black this stuff is amazing for only a $1 it won't break the bank! It is creamy and lasts forever. #11 is CoverGirl LashBlast 24hr in Very Black this stuff is really great too, and I use it every single day. #12 is the Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in Go Nude, I am not really crazy about this stuff, the color just doesn't wow me but it is very smooth and I do love it as just something on the lips. #13 is Sugar Lip Treatment in just the original, this stuff I got as a birthday gift from Sephora, and I love it (once I figured out how to open it).
One last thing that I have recently added to my collection is a L'oreal Carbon Black Liquid Liner. I was always very scared of liquid, but this stuff stays like nobody's business, and I love it in this hot summer heat. No more worries of running makeup!
Ok, as promised back to the Naked 2 Palette!
I know a ton has already been said about this jewel all over the internet, but I reach for this thing every single day. I got it for Christmas this year (really everyone in my family got one from my Step-Mom how awesome is that!) The colors are so rich and I really tend to go for browns anyway just to keep a more natural look.
I can't say I use the brush that is included in the package ever, but it's not a terrible brush.
From left to right: Foxy, Half-Baked, Bootycall, Chopper
From left to right: Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol
From left to right: Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout
My most commonly used shade (on a lazy day the only shade) is Tease. Tease can look a little bit like a bruise, but I like it because its not overly shimmery. But on a day that I feel like doing something cool I use Tease as a base, Foxy in the inner corners, Bootycall as a highlight under the brow, Busted on the outer corner, Half-Baked or Chopper in the center to lighten it up a bit, and finally Blackout on the lower lashes as a liner.
