For your lips: Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in “Pale Pink”. For your eyes: Tarte Sex Kitten Eyeshadow Palette.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in “Rose” – I am officially bringing this shimmer brick compact back out of retirement. I used to wear it non-stop in college and honestly don’t know why I quit buying it. I suppose I just wanted to spend the last decade ugly. I love it because you can sweep your brush across the entire palette for a nice rosey glow or you can go in to just the pink shades for blush or just the white shade for highlighting. It is a perfect 2-in-1 product for having dewy cheeks and then for highlighting your cheekbone and brow bone.
Bobbi Brown ‘Extra’ Spf 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm in “Light to Medium” – This lightweight foundation alternative is great for dry & dehydrated skin. It’s ultra-rich and blends easily, giving skin a dewy look. If you want a lot of coverage this probably isn’t for you since it’s extremely sheer. However, if you are looking for something to hydrate and protect your skin without looking like you’re wearing a ton of makeup then add this to your makeup bag asap. You apply it like you would a moisturizer with your fingers or you could use a foundation brush if you wanted a tad more coverage. Oh yeah, it has this ingredient in it called “Argireline peptide” which boosts skin’s natural collagen production. Talk about a win, win!
Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer in “Light” – I’ve heard of this product and it’s cult-like following for some time now. Virtually ever Youtuber I watch uses it or has used it. It is a full coverage concealer that hydrates and has a longwearing formula. It covers dark-circles, acne, redness and anything else you could possibly want to cover. You could buy darker colors and use for contouring and lighter colors to use for highlighting. I buy it in the color “light” and use under my eyes, down the bridge or my nose and on top of my lip if that lovely summer mustache ever tries to rear it’s ugly head.
Tarte Sex Kitten Eyeshadow Palette – I am loving this eyeshadow palette. There are mattes and metallics in it which is great for going from day (mattes) to night (metallics). The eight shades included have super rich pigments which means you use less and the colors look better on your skin. With base, crease & highlight shades included you could create eye shadow combination after eye shadow combination. There is even a pearly eye and cheek highlighter!
Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in “Pale Pink” – This is my favorite lip liner & favorite color of all time. I wear it daily and have purchased it again and again for the past 6 years.
