I’m obsessed with this. I’ve tried so many translucent powders - Laura mercier, Kat von d lock-it, fenty beauty etc. they were all too drying on me (I have very dry skin) and made me look old and tired. This powder is a game changer. It sets my makeup all day but isn’t drying so my makeup looks flawless without drying my skin out. I do have to say it doesn’t do a lot to control oil (which I don’t …Read more

I’ve repurchased this 4 times. I wear macadamia and I’m nc30. I suffered from cystic acne, and I carried this on me at all times. It is the only thing that covers cystic acne for me. I apply it with the pointy tip of a dry beauty blender sponge (dry so I don’t dilute it with a damp BB). It takes very little product to cover up any redness or acne scarring and it’s Matte and lasts all day. If I …Read more

This is my all time favorite mascara (and I’ve tried almost everything from drugstore to high end). I’ve repurchased IT superhero 4 times. I was dubious at first because I’m not a fan of IT products in general. For whatever reason this mascara gives me fake looking lashes with just a few swipes. The length it gives me is insane. I get asked regularly if I’m wearing fake eyelashes. No other …Read more

Love this bronzer more than my guerlain one or Dior. It gives a reddish bronze look which I like when I’m tan. I have to be careful to not overdo it (I’m nc30) as it’s very pigmented. It’s the most realistic looking tan in a package.

This is my favorite blush of all time when I’m tan. Right now I’m nc30 and this bronzey peachy blush makes me look flushed and bronzey I love it. I get so many compliments when I wear this. It’s slightly shimmery (which I like) but not over the top. I like this on me when I’m pale, but during the summer I wear it every day.

Eyeliner - Charlotte Tilbury - Rock'n'Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil - Bedroom Black

I have hooded eyes and this is the only liner I’ve ever found that doesn’t transfer onto my upper lid. I absolutely love kohl eyeliners for a Smokey eye. This one is super black, smudgeable, but stays put all day. I even wear it in my waterline and it doesn’t budge. The trick is to apply, smudge with a smudging brush, and let it set. It literally will not budge when I do this. It’s a miracle I …Read more

I bought this merely because of the shade. It’s a metallic red/bronze that is kind of similar to Mac teddy but with more red. I have brown eyes (this one is meant for green eyes) but I love it on me better than any of the other shades in this collection. I swipe onto upper lid and a little on lower lashline, blend with Mac soft brown, and then go in with CT rock n kohl black eyeliner and lots of …Read more

Full disclosure: I was looking for a dupe of Kylie Jenner’s coconut lip liner that she wears frequently and whirl is it. It’s a brown/mauve that goes with my daily bronzed look perfectly. I’ve been wearing it every day since I bought it. You get a lot of product for the price. I love MAC lip pencil formula. It stays put all day and is not overly drying on me. Whirl is the perfect matte …Read more

I own over 20 foundations (liquid and powder). Finding the perfect foundation is my obsession. Dior airflash is IT. I have dry skin, nc30 and wear 300 which matches perfectly. I shake it and spray directly onto the Dior airflash brush (this brush makes all of the difference - I tried many others before buying this and it gives the most flawless finish). Once I do a steady spray onto the brush, I …Read more
