Essentials


Urban Decay Naked Palette
Urban Decay Eyeshadow (Naked)
Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronze

These are my everyday beauty essentials. I've been using them for about the past year and love them! The MAC powder gives the right balance of coverage and light comfort. Good  buildable coverage. I wouldn't recommend it for heavy concealing or studio-grade photography though, as it is relatively light. It's definitely more of an everyday powder. The Marc Jacobs bronzer is huge! It is a little expensive- about 42 USD I believe, but it's well worth it because the color is good, it's matte (no shimmer!) and will last a lifetime. Meaning a year. The naked eyeshadow is from the Naked Palette- except I finished it and had to buy another one because I love it so much. I use it for a base lid color. It's a little lighter than my skin tone but it works because it brightens the eye and makes the contour color look good. Also prevents creasing throughout the day. Velvet Teddy omg... Medium skinned girls (and guys) honestly cannot go wrong with this color in my opinion. It's an awesome matte color, lasts for a long time, and keeps your lips hydrated. It even stays on if you drink a little out of a glass! But just a little, don't get too crazy. Finally I am pretty happy with this Diorshow Iconic Mascara right now, but I'm always on the lookout for new mascaras. I have been wearing two on my lashes at all times for I don't even know how long. I pick a volume formula for the base and put a lengthening one on top. Iconic is good on its own and is supposed to have a curling formula in it too.
