January Favorites

For the month of January I have been so boring with my make up.
Behold my current every day make up routine, I pretty much wore all of these daily without fail


Constants in my everyday make up routine : Lancome Dual Finish Powder, Laguna Bronzer, Lorac Moonstone. Everything outside those three, I tend to change up but this month I have been in a some what make up rut.

I have been pretty satisfied with my "look of the month" but am determined to change it up soon!

Base:


Lancome Teint Miracle: Review coming up ASAP

NARS Primer: Finished my Paul and Joe Primer, and had a full sized of this primer waiting. Love it. Something different about this primer is that it does not have silicone in it. For those who have a sensitivity to that ingredient, try this primer out. It's a gel, light, and does a great job.
They do also create an SPF formula

MAC's Redhead MSF:


I have been going through a phase of wearing MSF's as blushes all month. ( I have paled out due to the mass amount of snow and rain the east coast has received this season)

First was By Candlelight, then a little dip down to Stereo Rose, but Redhead, has been the one I have been reaching for the most. I know MSF's are almost all limited edition, but if you are paler, and want to brighten up your winter skin, try an MSF, a new use for these "highlighters" They are very shimmery, but if you pick an MSF with a refined shimmer, it really has a beautiful effect

The Little Accents:


Benefit's Birthday Suit: I have a few of these crease less creams but Birthday Suit and R.S.V.P are by far my favorite. Been layering this under my shadow, and it's just easy and lovely. I also line my lower lash line with this for just the slightest bit of definition, since I do not mascara my lower lashes ( just exaggerates their pathetic-ness, and makes my eyes look bigger)
So smooth, at least swatch these things!
I far prefer these over the MAC paint pots which can be a bit drier

Sephora Electro Liner in Copper
I tight line in black everyday, but for my upper lash line this copper pencil is perfect!!! I wing it out ever so slightly, and still can wear it to work. Due to the color, it works well with my yellow undertones, and does not look too dark or dramatic. It gives just the right amount of definition

NARS O Illuminator
I own a full size of this baby, but I love using the sample I received because the size is just more convenient. I keep this in my make up bag and travel with it.
Above the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, beneath and above the arch of the brows, cupids bow, and on top of your lipstick, brings your whole face together! LOVE this the most this month.

Smiths Rosebud Salve
A complete classic staple in so many make up bags. Thin and vaseline like with a rose scent, but the ease, vintage like packaging, and scent makes me reach for this daily this month. Gives the nicest, sheerest, just enough pink tint to the lips. Along with moisturizing benefits.
Finally hit pan! - these last forever!-worth the $8 bucks, def repurchase

  9. I am also loving the Lancome Miracle Teinte. But I have a question: What does it mean when a foundation oxidizes? hmmm I have always wondered what that meant. ^.^

    Rosebud Salve is also my fav~ The only thing that I don't like about it is that the packaging is not very hygienic.

    Redhead looks amazingly pretty~

  10. @ popcorn: Oxidizes means as the day goes on the foundation get darker on your skin, when buying Lancome TM they suggest buying one a bit lighter than your natural skin tone, as the day goes on, it will match ur skin over the day

    Rosebud salve has a new packaging in a tube which is far more convenient, i will buy that one next!
