I'm not that great at makeup. I could never give you a tutorial on how to have the perfect smokey eyes, but I do LOVE makeup. I feel like I've finally really narrowed in on the "dream team" of products. So, I thought I'd share. Do forgive the long post, but I figured you guys would want to know why I love this stuff so much. Being that I always love a product recommendation, would you share your current favorites in the comments? You're the best.
1. Smith's Rosebud Salve ($6): This stuff is A MUST. This gives your lips the perfect hint of coral color and keeps them super duper moisturized. It's the perfect all purpose gloss. I can't imagine using anything else.
2. Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Foundation($50): I had to face the fact a long time ago that I am a full coverage foundation kind of gal. I don't have the kind of skin where you can get away with a tinted moisturizer or a little bit of powder. I've tried about every foundation under the sun, and this one wins, hands down. It provides coverage without being heavy and leaves my skin looking smooth and luminous. It's pricey, but worth it. A little goes a long way.
3. Benefit's POREPfessional Primer ($29): This primer leaves your skin feeling amazingly smooth and minimizes the appearance of pores. You can even dab a little on later in the day to touch up your makeup. I've tried many a primer, and this is, by far, my favorite.
