Hi, my name is Mimi and I’m a makeup addict.
It’s true. I love makeup. Lots and lots of makeup. I love trying out new colors and looks and watching youtube videos and tutorials. It brings out the artistic side in me. I’m not claiming to be an expert by any means. It’s just a hobby. But a fun hobby just the same. So I thought it would be fun for today’s T3T (new nickname for it, ya like?) to share my favorites. My must-haves. My “I cannot live without”s. Here goes…
Primer for your face? Why yes, I thought it was a good idea too. Especially for my blotchy read skin that seems to seep through any foundation, no matter the “staying power” it claims. Well no more my friends. I am happy to say that with a little help from my friend primer…my foundation not only goes on smoother, but I use less product and…IT STAYS IN PLACE! Its a miracle – really, it is!
There are LOTS of good ones out there, even at very affordable prices (check out the ELF line at Target – I’ve loved almost everything I’ve tried so far). But my ultimate favorite must-have primer is Smashbox Color Correcting in Green. Yes, green. It helps diminish the redness like it means business.
And if you need a little shadow staying power as well, I will highly suggest the ELF Eye Primer from Target. It’s super cheap and does its job well. And when I say super cheap, I mean you can’t afford NOT to…hahaha!
Again with the green? YES! If you struggle with redness, its a lifesaver friends! And Maybelline’s Cover Stick Corrector Conceiler is awesome. I smear a little around my nose, under my eyes, and anywhere my skin is acting out a little. After the primer, before the foundation. You won’t regret it.
Alright, so I know this is where I will lose some of you. I know not everyone is a fan of liquid liner. But for the fans of the cat eye – I know you feel me on this one! I’ve tried several brands and while I haven’t been unhappy with any of them, my favorite so far has been Sephora’s High Precision Liner in Black. Although I forgot to get the waterproof one this time. May I suggest…get the waterproof. Especially if you are prone to crying like this lady over here. =)
Well there you go with my Top 3 (mkay I guess it was 4)!! If you had to choose, what would top your makeup must-have list? I’d love to hear! Mainly because I want to know what else to add to my collection
