Surprisingly I haven’t stepped out as much this month, which means I haven’t been using and abusing my cosmetics. But here are some of my favorites for the month of November.
Sonia Kashuk is one of the most underrated cosmetics brand. I’m a serious fan of her brushes (review coming soon) but I also happen to have a few of her beauty products and her brightening powder ($10.39) is my absolute favorite. I use it under my eye, on my cupid’s bow, and under my brow arch. It’s very light and doesn’t emphasize pores. If you’ve been eyeing the NARS light reflecting powder ($35) but can’t afford it then this is the way to go. You can find Sonia Kashuk products at any target and online. Give her a try and I promise you won’t regret it.
I recently purchased Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder ($36) and it has been my go to finishing powder ever since. I won’t go on and on about how amazing it is since I already reviewed it but seriously my latest obsession.
The NARS Blush – Bronzer Duo ($42) in Sin/Casino is a fall must have. Needless to say I will probably need a new one after this season is over. Sin is the perfect plum and I love pairing it with dark lipsticks during this time of year.
Oh, Diva how I love you so. I saw a friend of mine with this beautiful shade and I just had to have it. I’m happy to say it doesn’t disappoint. Diva ($16) is perfection and a part of the permanent range by MAC. This is truly a must-have shade and pairs perfectly with Burgundy lipliner by MAC as well.
All hail the Beauty Blender gods. Seriously the best foundation applicator during these dry and cold months. It gives my foundation an added moisture and the finish is flawless. I wet my sponge before using it and it expands as well as helping me stretch my product. When I don’t wet it the sponge simply soaks my product up. So I would definitely recommend wetting your Beauty Blender before using. I have about five of these and although every now and then I have to lay one of these to sleep forever, I will forever have an endless supply. I buy mine from Makeup Geek at an incredible price. Only $23.99 for not one but TWO of these bad boys! They’re available in both pink and black.
