Hello, friends! It has been a while since I have talked to you guys! This semester has been super busy, with classes, shows, and other college things. I have really been enjoying my sophomore year so far and feel that I have learned a ton so far.
I am currently on Thanksgiving holiday, which gives me some time to relax, spend time with my family, and finally catch up with you guys! Today I’m going to be talking about the products that I brought with me while on vacation. I have tried out a bunch of new products over the past couple of months–even dipping my toes in the high end beauty world a bit! There are a bunch of products that I’ve found to work really well for me and have become essentials for my everyday makeup.
Bare Minerals BarePro Foundation
This is my everyday foundation and I absolutely love it! It gives great coverage and feels so light on the skin. I also love that this foundation has a lot of great ingredients and skin benefits, including SPF protection. It lasts beautifully throughout the day, making its “performance wear” claim very fitting. This is a must have for traveling, because I know that it will always work well for me!
Benefit Porefessional Primer
I never thought that I would be a primer person, but once I started using this one, I was hooked! It helps my foundation look smoother and last longer, while feeling super light on the skin. I even use it for days when I don’t wear foundation, because it controls my oily skin.
Benefit Ka-Brow Eyebrow Gel
This eyebrow gel has been my go-to for the past couple of months. I love that there is a brush at the top of the cap, so I don’t need to bring a separate brush. The product is great and makes my brows look full and defined for the rest of the day. I actually got this product on sale, so I don’t know if I would recommend it at its normal price ($24) . There are certainly great options at a lower price, but I have really enjoyed using this product.
Wet n Wild Highlighter in Precious Petals
This is one of my favorite highlighters, because it makes me look super glowy and has a beautiful peach-toned shimmer. This is great for traveling, because its compact and won’t cost a pretty penny if it breaks ($2.99).
Tarte Blush in Paarty
I got this blush as part of Sephora’s birthday gift and I really like it so far. I like that this is in a mini size and the mauve-colored blush is perfect for fall.
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara
This mascara has been a favorite of mine for a while, because it does a great job of making my lashes look long and full. It’s definitely one of the best mascaras at the drugstore right now.
Revlon Lipstick in “Rum Raisin”
I brought a couple of different lipstick options for my trip. I love “rum raisin” for the fall time, because looks great with any makeup look. A dark nude is the way to go for an everyday fall look, and this one has been a must-have for a while.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Copenhagen”
This is the ultimate fall lip product for me, and I look forward to bringing it out every year. It’s the most beautiful berry, matte lip shade and I think it would look beautiful on any skin tone (especially darker skin tones). I love wearing it as a statement lip–it makes an everyday look a lot more fun!
I hope you enjoyed this post and have a fabulous Thanksgiving! Remember to take this time to think about what you’re thankful for, spend time with family, and enjoy the fall season. Have a great day!
