This foundation I use everyday, day and night. It doesn't clog pores and protects from the elements with SPF 15, and it gives skin a healthy natural look.
2. Foundation - L'Oreal True Match Lumi in shade Porcelain/ Light Ivory ($12.95 at lorealparisusa.com)
This is my go to foundation. Hands down. When I first started wearing makeup a few years ago, I kind of hopped around from foundation to foundation, not really finding anything that worked good for my combination skin. Then one day, one rainy day while on a trip to Texas, I stumbled upon this foundation that promised luminous skin. It's been my favorite ever since, and I rarely leave the house without it (I actually wear it around the house, that's how much I love it) It never clogs my pores, and it works like a charm.
3. Concealer - Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer ($32.00 at Sephora.com)
This concealer covers like no other concealer I have ever tried. It blends nicely, but the thick and pigmented formula covers up any blemishes, and can be used to brighten the under eye area as well as line lips.
4. Blush - ELF Hd Blush in shade Superstar ($3 at Walmart.com)
My favorite cream blush, it tops every high end blush I've tried. The formula is creamy and long lasting, and gives cheeks that just-pinched glow! :)
5. Highlighter - Benefit High Beam ($26 at BenefitCosmetics.com)
I use this ALL THE TIME. I bought it about a year ago and my bottle is almost used up because I didn't have the self control to ration it at the beginning ;)
4. Mascara - Dior Addict It Lash ($27.50 at Dior.com)
My eyelashes are naturally black, and already pretty voluminous, so for the longest time I had been searching for a mascara that lengthened and coated my lashes, but without getting all thick and gross. I found the answer in this creative black bottle. The formula is not dry, not wet, and not clumpy. It doesn't even look like you're wearing mascara! (Which I mean in a good way) it coats the lashes so perfectly, it looks like your lashes are just super duper ooper long and have been practically dyed black! It doesn't give the cakey texture that most mascaras do. I. LOVE. IT.
5. Lips - Neutrogena Tinted Lip Balm with SPF 20 in shade Sunny Berry ($9 at Neutrogena.com)
This is my favorite tinted lip balm IN THE UNIVERSE. I love it, it's cheap, and it offers fabulous pigment. It can easily be compared to the high end Sugar balms.
Have a wonderful day my Sparkles! I hope to be posting again next Sunday with some of my best makeup hacks! - Love, Savvy Rose
