Hello and welcome to this week’s post. I hope you’re all doing well.
Sorry for the late posts recently! I’ve had company in town and just came down with a pesky cold, so I haven’t really been in the most creative/ productive mood. Unfortunately, today will follow my mood pattern and will be relatively simple, but hopefully you’ll find some interesting recommendations to try out!
If you ask Yannick, he’ll tell you EVERYTHING is my favorite thing and that’s because I always say, ‘this is my favorite”. Although I do really love a lot of things, I thought I’d try to narrow it down to my most favorites.
This week I thought I’d start with a topic that’s easier to narrow down to holy grail favorites- makeup. I’d love to do this type of post on occasion and follow different themes (i.e.: movies, YouTubers, makeup brushes, foods, places etc.). Let me know what you’d like to see.
You can click the names of everything I list below and it’ll direct you to where you can purchase the products. I don’t make any money from you purchasing through these specific links, I just want to save you some time in case you want to check these products out.
But enough rambling. Let’s get started.
High End: Benefit Porefessional Face Primer
High End: MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot
Drugstore: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless
High End: NARS Natural Radiant Longer Foundation
Dark Circle Corrector
Drugstore: LA Girl Pro Concealer in Peach Corrector
Drug Store: None
Drug Store: None
High End: Benefit Hoola
Blush/ Cheek Topper
I don’t have a blush in mind. I mentioned a Milani one in a previous post but I very rarely wear it so it’s definitely not a holy grail.
As far as cheek toppers:
Drugstore: Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer
High End: Kevin Aucoin Contour Book. The sculpting powder is an absolute necessity for nose contouring in my opinion.
Drugstore: None. I haven’t tried enough, nor am I into highlighters enough to have a drugstore holy grail
Drugstore: L’oreal Brow Stylist Definer
High End: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer
Drugstore: L’oreal Lash Paradise
High End: IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara
Drugstore: Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner
Drugstore: Maybelline Eyeshadow Quad in Natural Smokes
High End: Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette
That’s it! I hope you found some suggestions that you’ll consider trying and please let me know if you do! Also, please let me know what your holy grail products are, or if there’s anything you’d like me to test out. And please let me know if you’d like a more in depth review on any of the products I mentioned here. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you for my next post.
