5 New Makeup Favorites

Lately I have been trying out some new makeup products. I have had a few misses but also found some great products that have become part of my normal makeup routine.

1. Nars Orgasm Blush - I've actually been using this for a year and mentioned it in this post but I love this blush too much not to share. The color is the perfect natural blush and really does look good on so many skin tones! This blush is so wearable that I'll use it even when I'm not putting much other makeup on.

2. Almay Shadow Squad -  I recently found these while walking thru the makeup aisles of Target. Each square is the same shade in 4 different finishes: matte, metallic, satin and glitter. The pigment is a good medium but still buildable. I love how easy it is to put a look together with the different textures.

3. Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder - This higlighter is the best! It goes on easily and I love to use it on my cheekbones, browbone and on my cupid's bow. 

4. Bareminerals Rose Eyeshadow Palette - Generally, I'm not drawn to eyeshadow palettes because I find that I only like a few of the eyeshadows and the others are a waste. The colors in the rose palette have enough variety that you can put together several different looks but nothing is too far out there that I won't use it. I've found that the rosey shade named Boho is my favorite. 

5. it Cosmetics CC Cream and Bye Bye Foundation - There are many days that I don't use foundation. I use a little concealer and call it good. On the days that I do need more coverage I've started using it Cosmetics. The first product I tried is the Bye Bye Foundation. It is full coverage but still so natural looking. I also love the feel and texture of it and it lasts all day. The CC cream is another great product and actually has skin care benefits in it as well. The best part is both products have spf 50 in them.
