A couple of people asked me the other day about makeup so I am going to share my favorite things to use. I find that if you have the right tools to work with in any profession then you'll be a success!
MAC's Studio Fix powdered foundation
MAC's powdered blush in Prism
MAC's eyeshadow base- This will keep your eyeshadow from wearing away and prevents any creasing.
I use brushes like these to apply shadow to the eyelid.
This one is for blending colors.
I use MAC's shadows as eyeliner. To apply the shadow as liner you'll need an angle brush like this one.
I love MAC's lipliner in Spice with a neutral lipcolour. I also love their Lipglass (lipgloss) in Oyster Girl.
I like Maybelline Waterproof Mascara's.
MAC's Fix+ This sprays on after you are finished applying everything to set and give your makeup and skin a nice healthy glow.
I mix and blend everything from foundation to eyeshadow to lipcolour! Blending is key imo.
Sorry I can't recommend other brands, I'm a MAC girl!
It is not necessary to spends tons of money on brushes! I found some great brushes at Walgreen's not long ago and Target has Sonia Kashuk makeup brushes as well.
I would love to hear other recommendations and product raves for those of you willing to share
