So far spring has been full of many wonderful things, including pretty makeup. The beauty bag I have been carrying around with me is full of my favorite products of the season, both brand new and cult classic.
MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish is an effortlessly beautiful highlighting powder that creates a very soft, shimmering glow to the skin. I lightly apply it with the e.l.f. Small Stipple Brush to the tops of the cheekbones, brows, as well as the cupid's bow to complete a look.
I picked up the Covergirl Brow & Eye Makers Pencil in Soft Brown on clearance and it has since become a staple in my improved 'quick brow' routine. I run it through each brow to fill in any bare spots and draw in a more defined tail. It blends well with my naturally dark hair color and the almost waxy texture stays put all day long. To set the brows, I sometimes apply a coat of the RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum to comb the hairs upwards and create a fuller look.
Maybelline's Master Kajal Cream Kohl Eyeliner in Midnight Brown has been my go-to liner as it is forgiving on sleepy mornings and makes my light brown eyes just pop. I will typically draw on a subtle cat eye then top it with some matching eye shadow using a sharp angled brush.
The newest mascara I am using at the moment has easily become one of my top drugstore favorites. Rimmel London's Scandaleyes Retro Glam in Extreme Black has a dense hourglass applicator that creates thick, Twiggy-esque lashes. It doesn't flake and with one coat adds a lot of drama, which for me really opens up my eyes and gives a flirty, doe-eyed look.
With inspiration from the lovely flowers and plants that are blossoming everywhere, colors like pastel mint and baby pink have been painted on my nails since March. I'm loving the muted Wet n Wild Megalast Salon Nail Color in Retro Mint as well as the baby soft Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Totally Tulip.
The most used face product in my collection has been the Dr.Jart+ BB Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm which replaced all my foundations since the weather began to warm up. It feels ultra light and covers any redness and all pores while maintaining a matte finish throughout the day. I will then dust on a little bit of the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder with the e.l.f. Complexion Brush to set the BB cream and provide more coverage.
For daily lip products, I keep it natural with either an EOS lip balm or a nude gloss like Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Flavored Gloss in Pink Goes Pop to add a tint of color. If I'm in the mood to wear a lipstick, I'll reach for the dark peach Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Sweet Cream, or the medium rose Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 104.
