Basic Makeup Recommendations

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm basically a makeup geek! I started wearing makeup since I was 12. There was a period of time that I felt I knew more about the products at Sephora than the actual girls did. (Big ego, I know). Haha. So today I'm going to share some of my favorites I have discovered over the years.  

Foundation: bareMinerals Original Mineral Powder spf 25 (there's a reason it always gets 5 stars!)
-buildable coverage, feel light on the face, improves skin, natural glow, I highly recommend for young girls suffering from acne.

bareMinerals - bareMinerals SPF 15 Original Foundation

Liquid Foundation: Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation (Great coverage, natural luminous finish, feels soft on your skin) 

Laura Mercier - Silk Creme Foundation

Eyeshadow/Blush Palette: Stila's travel palettes (depending on the kit, comes with 4-5 eyeshadows, blushes and lipgloss, only $16!) *I got mine almost a year ago and use it everyday. So easy to not have to think about coordinating all my colors.*

Stila - Stylish In Seoul Travel Palette

Brow pencil: MAC's eyebrow wax pencil (this is an absolute MUST. It's amazing and natural looking and they have the best colors. Enough said.)

 Eye Brows

Mascara: Estee Lauder's Sumptuous Extreme in black (It's expensive but it does the perfect job of adding volume and lengthening, and never ending up smudged underneath my eyes!)

Lipstick: MAC's lipsticks (only $15, they have several finishes and shades, and last several hours)

 Viva Glam Nicki

Have you guys tried these products and what do you think about them if you have?!
