I hope you all have a lovely holiday! Thanks for being so great!!

So, let's talk primers! Each day I apply make-up, there's one step that I absolutely cannot miss, and that is applying some sort of base.

There are literally primers for almost every make-up product (i.e.: eyeshadow, face, mascara, lips, etc.). I don't really go overboard with the primer thing, but I always wear a primer underneath my foundation and eyeshadow. With primers, you have to consider your skin type as stated in my Choosing The Right Foundation post. Knowing how and what your skin reacts to will definitely help you along the way in the world of make-up.  For example, I tend to go for mattifying primers for my face, because I have oily skin. If you have dry skin, you probably wouldn't choose a mattifying primer, or at least I wouldn't recommend it. 

Here's a list of some of my favs:

I usually purchase the sample size, first, to test the quality of high end brands. You can find the sample sizes at the brands' sites or at your local Sephora or Ulta boutiques in the check-out lines. Sample sizes are usually around the $10 range, which is pretty affordable, but if you think it's too much, there's always drug store brands. Unfortunately with drug store products, you aren't able to purchase a sample size. However, they're super affordable, and depending on where you purchase, if you don't like it, you can return it.

I hope you give my favorites a try!!

Hi guys!!
Maybe two weeks ago, I took a trip to Ulta to buy new brushes because my other brushes weren't clean (I honestly just needed an excuse to go lol), so since Ulta had a 'buy one get one half off' sale, I figured "why not?!" 

I've heard great things about Real Techniques brushes for YEARS, but I just never purchased them; not really sure why. Well, I'm actually very happy I finally got my hands on them! I picked up the Core Collection and the Starter Set, which both retails for $18, and each set has a number of brushes that are essentials to your makeup application.

The Buffing Brush

So let's talk about it. This brush is super soft and applies liquid foundation beautifully! I haven't experienced any shedding and it has cut my application time down tremendously. Unfortunately, you cannot purchase this brush solely alone, but the set is really inexpensive! I think it's safe to say that I will be purchases a few more brushes from Real Techniques.

What are some of your favorite make-up brushes?

Good morning friends!
As you know, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales were in full effect this weekend, and of course I participated. Here are some of my most recent buys!!

When it comes to make-up, I only purchased eyeshadow and of course none of it has arrived. I did, however, purchase new make-up a few weeks ago. Mainly things I've run out of, but also some lippies.

Have a lovely day!!
XO, Deanna
