Makeup Favorites

It's been a bit since I have done any sort of beauty post and I have changed up products and routines a lot this past summer.  The older I get, the more I understand my skin and what products do and don't work for me much better than I did years ago.  Maybe there's more time for trial and error because of age?!  I can go days without wearing a lick of makeup, but it definitely helps me feel more pulled together to have something on most days.  I am limited on time but have mastered what I need to pull off a quick and easy face to get out the door and get me through the day!



clockwise from top left
L'Oreal CC Cream - I use this as my moisturizer and foundation in one.  It goes on white and then adjusts to your skin color.  Unlike most tinted moisturizers, it is very hydrating!  Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer - Hands down the best eyeshadow primer.  I use it alone as an even base for my eye on days when I wear no shadow.  Nars Blush in Albatross - They file this under blush, but it is a fabulous powder highlighter.  I put it on top of my cheekbones, down the center of my nose and on the top of my brow bones.  Cle de Peau Concealer - The world's best concealer.  If I had to have any single product, it would be this.  It is pricey, but it lasts forever!  Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush - This brush is great for foundation and powder.  It is multi-use and super gentle on skin.   Le Volume de Chanel Mascara - I generally avoid pricey mascaras, but I am sold on this one.  You only need it a little bit for good results and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all.  Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Brightening Blush - I use the full coverage face brush to apply this lightly to my cheeks.  It can be swirled together or used separately and is great for building color to the amount you want. 

This seems like a lot, but I can get these on in about five minutes and be done for the day!  Share any and all of your favorites!
