BEAUTY - 50 IS NOT OLD

BEAUTY

My styles change by the season, and so does the makeup that I am using. Here is a list of the products that I am currently using.

Skincare:

I always start with a freshly scrubbed face. I either use my Reverse or my Redefine Regimen from R+F before I apply any makeup.

Primer:

I use Step 3 from the Recharge regimen as a primer. It has an SPF 30 and it gives you a poreless matte finish. You can buy separately or with the regimen. step 3 of the Recharge regimen from R+F

Foundation(ish):

I no longer use “foundation” or “CC or BB cream” since I tried Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid. It is a lightweight, oil-free, and tinted, multitasking liquid formula that protects and instantly perfects skin. I only use a small amount, about the size of a pea, and I get all-day coverage that allows my skin to show through. After using this, everything else is too heavy and makes my pores show. I am in-between colors right now, so I am using two colors (sand and beige) and blending them together. I also use the angled brush that comes with its own case from R+F.

Concealer:

I use Shape Tape by Tarte in the color light sand. The only issue that I had with this concealer was that it would get in the creases under my eye. But, I found that they just added a “creaseless” version!!! I am ordering it myself, and I found a value set where you get 3 other sample products also. Here is the link to that set. I use the same brush that I applied my foundation(ish) to blend. Shape Tape concealer Value Set by Tarte

Contouring:

I use a bronzer/contour cream by Milk Cosmetics in the shade Blaze. It looks dark when you apply, but it blends in great. I use the same brush that I applied my foundation(ish) to blend. Matte Bronzer by Milk Cosmetics

Setting powder:

I set my wet liquids by using a big fluffy powder brush by Sigma, and the L’oreal Hydra Perfecte translucent powder.

Blush:

I am using the shade Rockateur from Benefit for my blush and I add Pink Swoon from MAC in a small amount for a little brighter color. I apply the blush with a powder/blush brush from Sigma.

Eyebrow:

I have been using Milani Easybrow pencil in the shade Taupe for a while now. It is very inexpensive, and I think that it does as well as others that I have used that cost four times more. Here is the link to the pencil.

Mascara:

I have been loving They’re Real lengthening and volumizing mascara by Benefit in Black. It doesn’t flake and it doesn’t clump like others that I have used. I love how the brush separates your lashes and it lasts all day.

They're Real mascara by Benefit Eyeshadow:

I have been using Too Faced eyeshadow palette for a while. The one that I am currently loving is called Chocolate Bar and it smells just like chocolate. YUM! I use several eyeshadow brushes from Sigma. It is actually cheaper to buy a set than it is to buy them individually. Here is a link to an eyeshadow set.

Eyeliner:

I use the Clay Pot Waterproof liner from Tarte in black. I apply to my waterline as well as my lash line. Here is the link.

Tarte Waterproof liner Setting Spray:

I use two different setting sprays. One is by Mac and one is by Urban Decay. A setting spray will help to set your makeup and keep it from rubbing off before the end of the day.
