Hey there guys and gals! I know I’m a little late for posting this favorites list but I wanted to make sure that it’s perfect! April was a very interesting and busy month for me! I don’t know about you guys but I am so ready for May and summer because I am a total autumn and winter person! Now enough of me talking let’s get on with this list!!
I’m going to start by how I would do my face like my primers and lotions and then I’ll finish with my setting powders and sprays!
Primers and lotions;
Benefit porefessional primer- It’s very smooth, like the feeling of it reminds me of velvet almost. It basically reduces the size of my pores when I put on makeup and it makes my face feel so soft!
Nyx Matte finish spray- Now I know a lot of you are gonna say. “Mia, you’re supposed to use a Finishing spray AFTER you do your makeup.” I know and I do! It’s been crazy hot in California lately so I have been using this to actually help my makeup stick more!
Foundation and concealer
Ulta BB cream- when I first started using it, it was a little tan for me but it ended up being perfect near the ending of the month, it does go on a little oily and its kinda streaky but its super good and light weight
or if I want a medium coverage
Maybelline fit me matte and poreless foundation I really love the finish that this foundation has. It’s a little heavier so I use it in the early spring when it’s still kinda wintry feeling or if I am going out on a date or to a party.
Maybelline master conceal or maybelline fit me – I have been switching between these two for the past month. I love the light weight formula of the fit me, I love using it for highlighting. And I love using the maybelline master conceal for hiding acne and dark circles.
Too Faced cocoa powder foundation I absolutely love the finish. It makes my face seem flawless and it doesn’t make my face look super cakey. It also helps that my face also will smell like chocolate.
Contour, blush, Highlight
Maybelline Fit me concealer in cocoa I like having a cream contour than a powder. To me it makes it look more natural. I love having my face contoured.
Ciate London bronzer in Bamboo bronzer- I love this packaging and the product. It gives a perfect shadow for my contour!
Mac Bite of an apple So this is a blush that was a limited edition blush. It was from MACs Disney collaboration and I LOVE this blush. I personally love bright pink almost red blush because I love looking like I was blushing all day. But I have a dupe for you! It is Le Femme blush in coral. It’s also $3.70 from camera ready cosmetics.
Mannakadar beauty Paradise blush So this is another coral color, but this one has a slight shimmer to it which I love! I will wear this if I go out with friends or to a party it’s so fun and it blends out super well.
My favorite subject.
NYX DuoChrome Highlighter in lavender Steel This is such a fun and cool highlighter. I LOOOVE how it makes my skin look in the sun. It looks kinda rosy in some lights while in others it’s really purple. I feel like this is a great highlighter for music festivals and everyday!
MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimmenson Skin finish – If you don’t like crazy highlighters like my last one, you’ll love this one. ‘ beautiful gold and bronze color
Finally my setting spray that I love is the NYX Matte setting spray that I have talked about earlier.
Those were my makeup favorites for the month! Please let me know if you want me to talk about my fashion favorites in next month’s favorites!
