Even though this Valentine’s will include a highchair I am still planning to get all fancy I have my dress ordered but wanted some new makeup. I always get stuck in ruts with makeup… I mean I have used the exact same foundation for 3 years, same mascara for at least 8 years, same blush for 2 years, etc. … I find something I love and won’t use anything else until I find something AMAZING to replace it with. I am still going strong with my foundation, mascara, and eyeliner but I headed to Nordstrom to talk to the beauty girls about new things I needed to try.
I am all about a simple eye (not much eyeshadow if any), a good cat eye (always), full coverage face, and LASHES! I also think the key to a good ‘full coverage’ face is moisturizing so I was on the hunt for a new moisturizer that can easily go under make up. I was having a really hard time with my concealer because like I have said, I got melasma while I was pregnant and while my concealer was covering it, it was creating creases under my eyes which was driving me bonkers!!!! I also needed to branch out on blush AND and new blush brush since mine is literally ratchet and so old. So I spent hours at Nordstrom picking out some new things to help me feel pretty for Valentines and here is what I ended up with.. (I could not be happier! So don’t be surprised if you see these products in my everyday routine for the next…… 3 years hahah)
Lancome Artliner – my favorite eyeliner I have used for years
Bobbi Brown Blush – a new addition that I LOVE!
Estee Lauder Concealer – its buildable and the best I have used
La Mer Cream – amazing under make up!
Bobbi Brown Matte Lipstick – I always go with MAC and so happy I branched out and tried something new, I have worn it every day this week!
Trish McEvoy ‘Mistake Proof’ Blush Brush – makes your blush go on so airy and light! I wonder how I ever applied it before this brush.
I also got some MAC false lashes since I had to stop using Latisse due to pregnancy and breastfeeding and my lashes need some help! I also loaded up on my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and a Estee Lauder Lightening Serum that will hopefully help with my melasma! And I feel like a new woman!!!
