Ooo Lala!!! If your makeup collection does not consist of something from the Dose of Colors line, I’m convinced that you have not lived. Okay, maybe I’m being a little bit dramatic …but since their inception 3 years ago there isn’t a single product that I have not loved. Anna, the founder of Dose of Colors, was a makeup artist turned business owner and she’s turned her love for the art of makeup into a thriving makeup company. As an artist, I appreciate the quality and dedication that she puts into the brand because every product is made with love and her customers in mind. Dose of Colors is mainly known for their liquid lipsticks, but they have recently expanded to pigments, brushes and their first makeup palette.
ABH Has released another stunning palette to close out 2015! And it’s perfect for the holiday season which is upon us (I have mixed feelings because of the weather). The palette consists of 14 shades. 2 mattes, 2 titaniums, 4 metallics, 2 sparkle shades, 2 chrome finishes, 1 velvet shade and 1 satin shade.
Sigma Beauty has collaborated with the stunning Camilo Coleho to create this beautiful collection. Each of these products can be used together or separately to achieve the perfect “Nightlife” signature look. For those of you that follow my blog know that I am a fan of the Sigma Beauty line. Their packaging is always top notch and the products are nothing short of amazing. My two favorite products in the collection are the glitter handle brushes and 12 pan palette.
La Splash Cosmetics has released a beautiful array of matte lipsticks!! They are reasonably priced and comparable to some higher end liquid lipsticks.
Find Swatches for my entire collection below (click on each picture to enlarge). Most of the shades require one layer, however some tend to be slightly patchier and require an extra layer to achieve an opaque look. The drying time is between 3-5 minutes.
If you are a makeup lover like myself, you will find yourself constantly searching for the perfect eyeliner. Whether it’s to create a fierce wing, for a smokey lashline, or for a long wear product for the waterline you will consistently be adding to your collection of liners. I am all about long wear products and whenever I hear about a new or improved liner being released, I can’t help but pick it up! Perfecting a quick and effortless wing is a struggle for sure, so I’m always trying out products to make the process as easy as possible. Tarte has recently released a new eyeliner called “Tarteist Clay Paint” Liner and from what I have seen it looks pretty awesome. Have any of you tried it? Is it a must have? Lol
These are my favorite eyeliners of the year. Whether you are a pencil, gel or liquid girl. I have included a higher end option along with a drugstore choice for everyone’s budget.
One of the hardest makeup products to find is the PERFECT foundation. It’s ironic because there are literally a million different companies that offer a wide range of shades and formulas, which I think adds to the frustration of “Where do I even start looking?”. Before I was a makeup artist I tried a ton of different foundations trying to find the formulation for my own skin. They either made me break out, oxidized and turned orange, or would slide around after a few hours.
After years of searching I have finally found a few different foundations that worked for me and also made it into my makeup kit. But before we get into those, let’s talk a little bit about skin types and picking the right foundation.
