I'm all about the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette at the moment, I am kicking myself for not purchasing this sooner! I never knew how essential an all matte palette would be, but my gosh I can't get enough!

I also think that this makeup look is so cute for fall time with a flush of berry on the cheeks and lips. I added a blanket scarf from Forever 21, curled my hair a bit, and I was ready for my day!

If you'd like to see my current go to makeup look, plus hear me totally mess up the name of an eye shadow (still very embarrassed about this...) then be sure to watch my most recent tutorial by clicking HERE.

Thank you SO much for watching, and don't forget to subscribe to my channel!

Foundation Collection!

Monday, September 21, 2015

I have such a weakness for buying foundations! I'm always searching for my holy grail foundation and one that will last a long time on my combination skin with a medium coverage and a skin like finish.... is that so much to ask? ;)

In today's video I shared with you my foundation collection and the ones I have tried in the past but have since moved on from. Make sure you read my description box because I listed a LOT of info in there!

I am doing a Makeup Collection series over on my YouTube Channel showing you parts of my collection in each video! The first video of this series is my Primer Collection! I use a primer everyday and I wanted to go through this series in the steps that I apply my makeup.

I will be having my Concealer collection up very soon! The one after that will be Foundations! Make sure you subscribe so you will know when I have uploaded both of those videos... they are coming very soon, I promise!

Current Makeup

As most of you know I am a huge neutral makeup lover and I always tend to wear the same look day to day. I wanted to share with you what I've been wearing as it is really simple, natural, and easy for those early school/work day mornings!

I always start with a primer, I've done this for years and it feels weird for me to not wear a primer! I love the Tarte 12 Hour Brightening Primer for summer or winter. It really gives you a beautiful angelic glow that I can't say no to! I then go in with my foundation. For 5 months straight I have been HOOKED on the Josie Maran Serum Matchmaker Foundation, but at the moment I am loving the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. I am in the shade Ivory and it is a pretty good match! It is quite golden toned but it does match my chest and neck very well. For my undereyes and any redness I use the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I use a BeautyBlender for my foundation and concealer and it really gives a skin like finish that I love! For powder I always use the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder under my eyes, on my forehead and nose. I purchased the smaller size as you still get lots of product and of course it is a bit cheaper!

Oh goodness. Do I need to even have an introduction for BECCA Champagne Pop? It is the most beautiful highlight I have owned! For 3-4 years I have been using MAC Soft & Gentle highlight and I absolutely love it and highly recommend. I just knew I couldn't pass up Champagne Pop. I have several swatches of it on my instagram which you can view HERE. For blush I do tend to change that up everyday. I have quite a collection of blushes and I can't stop buying them! I LOVE BLUSH! I really love Tarte Dollface Blush, as well as NARS Deep Throat blush. Dollface is a slightly cooler pink that really looks so pretty on fair skin. Deep Throat is a tad darker with more shimmer and a *slight* coral undertone. I have been applying bronzer to my temples and nose, and for that I love ARS Laguna Bronzer.

I am so simple on my eyes! I always have been and I think it just suits me.... or maybe it's just what I am used to. I just purchased the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette 3 days ago and I am LOVING that right now, but in the long run I have been using mostly my MAC eyeshadows. I use Blanc Type on my brow bone and inner corner, Jest all over the lid, and Wedge in the crease and outer corner. It is my favourite makeup look that takes me no time at all as it's what I've been doing for ages! For Mascara I use the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara and I love it. I get really long lashes that never get too clumpy!

I always change up my lip colour just like I do with my blush! At the moment I am loving the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter in the shade 5 Candy Shimmer. It is a beautiful pink (with no shimmer haha) that smells amazing and lasts a long time on my lips for a gloss! My best friend purchased this for me and I have been using it daily. As a lot of you know, I also am totally obsessed with the YSL Tint In Oil in the shade Pink About Me. It is totally with all the hype & more that it receives! It goes on very oily/glossy and then within 10-15 minutes the slippery sensation is gone and you are left with a beautiful pink tinted stain that lasts a very long time! If I want to wear a lipstick that day, I always reach for MAC Syrup.

There you have it! My current makeup routine that I love and have been wearing every single day!
