The beauty breakdown:
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer- silky smooth, lightweight and fills pores to create a flawless base for foundation. Great for hot, humid summer honey moon destinations.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation- gives skin a dewy but effortless and perfected skin-like appearance. Blends beautifully and makes skin appear radiant!
Makeup Forever HD Pressed Powder- I loved setting my foundation with this transluscent powder. Doesn't overly mattify the skin and looks great in pictures!
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer- my new holy grail concealer that is so breathable despite its thick consistency. Covers dark circles and pimples like a dream!
Benefit Watts Up! Highlighter- a gorgeous champagne highlighting stick that gives cheekbones a beautiful glow.
NARS Laguna Bronzer- My favorite bronzer for any season! Gives the cheeks and face a natural sun-kissed appearance and very finely-milled!
Sonia Kashuk Cheek Duo in "Glisten"- A stunning coral blush on one side and a shimmering, highlighting bronzer that's great for kicking your favorite bronzer or contour up a notch. Check out my full review of this duo in this blog post.
MAC Painterly Paint Pot- I will probably bring this little baby to the grave with me. This eye primer is a jack of all trades with awesome priming power and opaque, creamy coverage for veiny or red eye lids.
Lorac Pro Palette- my favorite palette for traveling hands down. Includes a row of 8 matte shades and 8 shimmery shades to create an endless array of looks. Check out my full review of this palette in this blog post.
Revlon Eyelash Curler- I love the comfortable grip so that the metal doesn't dig into your hands while curling.
Better Than Sex Mascara- Another new holy grail item for me that I fall in love with more every day. Creates stunning length and volume for lashes! I died when I saw the hilarious commercial for this product. DIED.
NYC Liquid Eyeliner- For a drugstore liquid eyeliner, this this is pretty much beyond belief. Great staying power (not water-proof though), super black and the wand is really simple to use.
Trim Beauty Care Wide Grip Tweezers- I love the circular grip that makes tweezing those difficult sneaky hairs a cinch.
MAC Lipstick in "Faux"- a gorgeous mauve rose-nude color.
MAC lipstick in "Blankety"- one of my all-time favorite creamy nude lipsticks with a pinky-beige undertone.
Makeup Forever Aqua Lipliner in "1c"- a lovely nude lipliner that won't budge. I love to fill my lips with this and then pair a simple nude-pink lipgloss overtop.
Maybelline ColorSenational Color Elixir Lipgloss in "Petal Plush"- a light pink feminine gloss that feels SO creamy and moisturizing on the lips. I'm tempted to buy one in every shade!
