FAVORITES FRIDAY: WHAT’S IN MY MAKE-UP BAG

I love make-up reviews so here are some of my favorites that I use just about everyday. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on make-up because there are so many good drugstore brands out there now but if I were to recommend spending a lot on anything it would be the foundations, concealers, and mascara that I have linked above. The Estee Lauder foundation is great for everyday wear because it stays on so well so you can go all day with basically no touch ups…even when I go to the gym and sweat like crazy (ok…gross but it does stay on). It doesn’t get cakey or uneven and it’s just plain amazing so I highly recommend it. I would say it is more of a medium coverage. The Armani foundation that I linked above is also amazing. I went to Nordstrom to try it out before I bought it and the sweet lady at the make-up counter did a whole make-over on me with all of the Armani products and let me tell you they are all amazing and worth the price tag so if you have some money to spend on make-up and skincare hit up the Armani counter at your local Nordstrom. I told her I was going to walk around and shop for a little while to see how it held up before I decided if I was going to purchase and I went into the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and turned right back around to go buy it! It just gives you this glow that I have never had from any foundation before and makes your skin look flawless. It’s more of a lighter coverage but you can do your eye make-up and then add a second layer if its not enough coverage for you…it doesn’t look cakey even with a second layer. I also have never loved and been so dedicated to a concealer as I am to the Tarte one that I linked to. You will not find a concealer that covers better and hides dark circles better than this one! Trust me…I think I have tried them all! I also really like to add a little the Wet & Wild highlighter over the concealer for a little glow. I’m not good at contouring so I usually just add a little highlighter here and there and call it a day. Major props to anyone that has that whole contouring thing down because I am terrible at it so I gave up. Haha. I also cannot live without that NYX primer and the NYX lip primer. They make all the difference in the world. I never really used primers until about a year ago and now I’m like “How did I ever live without this?!”. Everything I linked to I own and use just about everyday so if you have any questions feel free to leave me a comment. I also linked to my favorite perfume…I love just about any scent by Escada. Every time I wear this I have so many people ask me what scent I’m wearing. I added some clear make-up bags and make-up organizers that I love too. Up until about a month ago I was storing my make-up in Ziplock storage bags until I finally broke down and bought a new clear make-up bag. I really like the clear ones because you can see what is in there so you don’t have to spend 20 minutes digging through your make-up vortex to find the lip liner you are looking for. Speaking of lip liners….I swear by the Wet n Wild one I linked to. It’s ridiculously cheap and I have to stock up every time I find them because I use them so much and sometimes just wear only the lip liner. You really don’t even need to wear anything over them because they look great on their own. I’m so excited today is Friday even if I do still have to get up at 6 am tomorrow to take the boys to soccer. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
