NARS YSL Favorite Concealers

My NARS And YSL Favorite Concealers

Up until a few years back, I did not need concealers. But that has all changed now. My racoon eyes need all the help they can get these days. And I am thankful I have found a few that work very well for me. So today I will share with you my NARS and YSL Favorite Concealers.

A little bit about my skin. I have sensitive, combination skin. Depending on the season and the foundation formula, I was color matched to foundations from NC30- NC40 in MAC. I am a 40 Beige in Chanel foundations.

Do You Love Red Lipsticks?

They say, you can never have too many lipsticks. I think that is true, especially for a lipstick lover like me. I love nude lipsticks. And I have an insane amount of nude lipsticks. But today's question is do you love red lipsticks? I took out some red lipsticks from my stash and was actually surprised by the amount of red lipsticks I own.

And I forgot to add some others to this list.

Do you love red lipsticks?

I guess I do, but I love nude lipsticks a tad bit more. Red lipsticks take your look up a notch …

Shimmery Eyes And Red Lips For Today’s Look

A real simple but timeless look for today. Shimmery eyes and red lips go so well together. What do you think of this classic combination?

Makeup Used To Create Shimmery Eyes

I used the shimmery shade Bellatrix and the matte shade Atik to create this simple eye look. Line your eyes with any black eyeliner. I used the KVD Beauty Tattoo Liner here.

NARS High Profile Cheek Palette

Should you buy the beautiful NARS High Profile Cheek Palette?

I am reviewing another Holiday 2021 makeup palette today. Today the spotlight is on the NARS High Profile Cheek Palette. NARS powder products have always worked for me, so I decided to buy this without swatching it at the store first.

According to Sephora this is a “A holiday-themed blush, highlighter and contour palette featuring six limited-edition shades in one of NARS’s most innovative formulas.”

NARS Air Matte Cream Blush

Is NARS Air Matte Sheer Cream Blush In Scandalous Perfect For Fall?

I go through phases where sometimes I love powder blushes and at other times I prefer cream blushes. I got this NARS Air Matte Sheer Cream Blush in the shade Scandalous a while back. But hadn't gotten around to swatching it. The color in the pot screams fall. It's getting cooler, feels like fall, so I thought it would be a good time to start wearing this blush.

Sephora website says this is “A unique mousse blush that transforms into a velvety powder for a weightless, cloud-like wash of cheek color. Each sheer, matte shade builds to desired effect. Discover …

Taupe Eyeshadow and Pink Lipstick

A Look With Taupe Eyeshadow And Pink Lipstick

Another random fun fact for you. A group of bunnies is called a fluffle. Baby bunnies are called kittens. Just how cute is that! For today's look I paired Taupe Eyeshadow and Pink Lipstick. I loved the end result. What do you think?

I always start with my sunscreen, then apply primer. After it dries/sets I start with my eye makeup. After that I apply foundation/tinted moisturizer and concealer. Finally I apply some powder, blush, lipstick and then my mascara as the last step. Sometimes I change the order a bit and apply powder over blush, sometimes I apply blush …

How to make eyeshadows pop

How To Make Eyeshadow Pop

Sometimes you buy an eyeshadow, because it looks great in the pan. That teal or the amazing duo chrome eyeshadow you picked, somehow does not look the same on your eyelids. And that is so disappointing. But fear not, I know a tip to make eyeshadow pop.

This happens for multiple reasons. Maybe the eyeshadow is not pigmented enough. Or maybe you need a primer. In most cases though using a base will help the eyeshadow color to pop.

Things you will need

  • Your favorite eyeshadow, preferably a vibrant one that needs more pop on your eyelids
  • A white eyeliner

NARS Summer Solstice Highlighter and Bronzer Duo

NARS Summer Solstice Bronzer & Highlighter Duo Review

It took me a long time to try bronzers. I wrongly believed that since I am medium skin toned, I would not have any use for it. Thankfully, I no longer think that way and have a few bronzers I enjoy using. When I saw the breathtaking NARS Summer Solstice Bronzer & Highlighter Duo, I had to have it. I mean just look at it!

Sephora website says “This duo includes a Bronzing Powder that creates the perfect sun-washed look, delivering soft, shimmering color for all-over warmth, while the Highlighting Powder delivers next-level luminosity with Seamless Glow Technology.”
