1. Milani Baked Blush – Luminoso
Why you need it : Luminoso gives a peachy glow that will brighten your cheeks. This highly pigmented blush is perfection year round whether I am tanned or not. Contrary to the glitter and iridescent hue it looks like in the pot, once transferred to the skin it leaves a barely noticeable shimmer. Milani Luminoso is very pigmented and will last all day.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso $8.49 at CVS.
2. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Why you need it: Fit Me Concealer is creamy and spreads nicely without getting caked onto your skin. This is not a thick fluid,, but it is not sheer either. I use it to cover imperfections and as a highlighter.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer $6.99 at CVS.
3. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Yogurt:
Why you need it: After applying shadow primer swipe on yogurt eye pencil. It blends perfectly with a swipe on your lid. I also use it underneath the bottom lash line when I want a sultry effect. Lasts all day without clumping and creasing.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in yogurt $4.49 at CVS.
4. Miss Manga Mascara Black
Why you need it: If you are looking for voluminous thinker lases that won fall flat Miss Manga is for you. My number one tip is to start at the base of the lashes and in a side to side motion apply mascara. Slowly bringing the wand down keep side to side. Let the first coat dry and swipe on another coat focusing on separating lashes so that they don’t clump.
Miss Manga Mascara in Black $7.99 at CVS.
5. L’Oreal Infallible Passionate Petal Lipstick
Why you need it: This is the first all day wear lipstick that I have fallen in love with. Passionate Petal is a highly pigmented everyday color that stays on the entire day. I don’t have to reapply the entire day aside from swiping on the included balm to give it a shine. If I fail to use balm over top the color will look matte. Tip use an oil based makeup remover and lip exfoliater to get everything off.
L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Passionate Petal $12.99 at CVS.
6. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
Why you need it: Neutrogena Naturals Towelettes gets my entire face completely clean with one wipe. It’s gentle and smells fantastic.
