Makeup Menu | Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Today's makeup menu features some of my old favorites. Still using Laura Mercier eye basics base in wheat, I topped the look with L'Oreal infallible eye shadow in amber rush. It is so easy to use. I just use my fingers to blend the product all over my lids and with a matte brown shadow, I blend into the crease to create more depth and definition. I lined the look with a brown pencil liner and curled the lashes and topped it with mascara. 

The special for today is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I forgot how great this foundation was! It lifts up to its name by giving healthy glow finish to the skin. I used the shade light bronze which might be a little too dark for me, but I think I still can get away with it by blending it out. It is so easy to blend and applies gorgeously on the skin. It really makes my skin glow healthily!  I used Benefit erase paste for under the eyes. It brightens and smooths out the appearance under there which makes me look more awake and fresh. I paired with Hourglass ambient lighting powder in diffused light, which adds even extra glow.

Holiday 2015 | Tarte Dressed to the Nines LipsSurgence

This is by far the best deal I've got. With $34, you get 9 high quality lip cremes. They are all pigmented and last long. The set comes with three individual gift boxes which is perfect for gift giving. What I appreciate most is that the individual size is not mini size like what Fresh has for its sugar lip treatments. The size is legit and they don't feel fragile at all. I feel like it's pretty much the size of a lipstick, maybe a bit smaller.

They all smell minty, which can be overpowering. If you don't like it, then this might not be for you. I personally don't mind. I can hardly notice it once I'm wearing it. My favorite one is Pizzaz , which is the boldest color in the middler here.

Makeup Menu | Becca Rouge Eye Palette

This is a selection of makeup in my current rotation. I always try to rotate what I use every week, just so I get to try new products and essentially be "fair" if you know what I mean ;).

Starting from the face, it's no news that I've been enjoying TooFaced Born This Way foundation. I have a video all about it, so I'm not gonna rave long. It's just my new favorite for easy, natural makeup look, which I tend to always go for. Laura Mercier foundation primer has been my go-to lately for my makeup base. I got this a while ago when I redeemed my VIB points. I also have been using  Burberry Luminous fluid base under my foundation to give a more glowy look. I personally think it works best as a base under a more less coverage foundation. It has very subtle shimmer, yet so pretty. I also bust out my Nars Virtual Domination cheek palette I got last year. It was a limited edition, but Sephora has some out with this year's version.
