It's been a while since I've made a post about my morning favorites, aka my daily makeup products that I've been loving. I'm not really the type to experiment a lot with makeup. If there's a routine that gets the job done, I'll stick to it! Recently, though, I've started to experiment with lipsticks, particularly matte lip products. I've been loving the nude lips and can't stop wearing it.
I haven't been feeling foundation for the past couple of months so I've been just using concealer. I use the Naked Skin Concealer for my under eye circles (this is amazing for my bags under my eyes!) and the Nars Creamy Concealer for any blemishes and uneven skin tone. I apply them with my trusty Beauty Blender (which by the way, is definitely worth the hype and changed my life forever). I use the Benefit Girl Meets Pearl as a highlight and it gives such a nice natural glow to my face. Recently I got the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil as a Sephora 100-point freebie and I absolutely love it! I've been using it as a contour powder and it looks incredibly natural on my fair skin. I think I might buy the full size after I run out of this sample. The lip combination I've been loving (like I'm obsessed!) is MAC Velvet Teddy with MAC Subculture lipliner. I first heard about this liner from Sunbeamsjess (here's her youtube, ugh, I love her so much!) and she says she swears by this nude liner. It can be worn basically under any color but I think it looks great with a nude lipstick like Velvet Teddy. I know Velvet Teddy has been a cult favorite for some time and I now know 100% why. I haven't worn any other color! I definitely recommend this color combination!
Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope everyone has a splendid time with friends & family! x
