Are you able to keep in mind these!? Very comparable tones as my cream eyeshadows, however simply thought I’d get them into the on a regular basis rotation because it had been some time. For mascara I’m presently loving the Lancome Monsieur Large Waterproof Mascara* – one other blast from the previous. I have a tendency to use after which take a clear spoolie via the ends to eliminate any bulk.


Most days I simply stick the Summer season Friday Lip Butter in Pink Sugar* on and name it a day, however seeing ass it feels prefer it’s been ages since I used every other lip product I assumed I’d add the Hermes Rosy Lip Enhancer in Rose Tan* to my bag. A really comparable tone to the lip butter to be sincere, however with a barely extra satin-like end.


I maintain my instruments SIMPLE. Principally as a result of I hate washing my brushes, so each day I solely use three. The Westman Atelier Blender Brush* – so costly, however I’ve used it daily because it launched in 2019 and it nonetheless appears to be like model new, you get what you pay for with this one. The Magnificence Pie Professional Angled Cheek Brush* – simply the perfect for the Make-up By Mario Bronzer – it type of hugs the cheekbones so you will get a very exact, however simply blended utility.
