I’ve been receiving a ton of requests on my favorite makeup products so thought I would share with you the products that are constantly in my makeup drawer. I did a similar post a few months back but i’ve added a couple new ones……

* I’ve turned into quite a makeup junkie and LOVE hearing your favorite products too!!
My go to drug store foundation for the past 6 months has been Loreal true match (I wear W6). Its super affordable, oil free, has SPF in it and matches my skin pretty darn well! A lot of you asked what makeup I was using in yesterdays purple eyeshadow look and it was Loreal True Match mixed with a couple pumps of Mac Strobe liquid (can also use it as a highlighter) to thin it out a bit and give a subtle glow. Other highlighters I’m loving are Nars albatross and Maybellines color tattoo eyeshadow in “too cool”. I use it on the inner corners of my eyes and brow bone.
Im a huge fan of Revlon nail polishes! You never need more than two coats and they are only around $5. I just can’t bring myself to spend $20 on a bottle of nail polish. Something I will splurge on though is concealer. Being Italian I have always had dark circles under my eyes so a great concealer is worth every penny to me! Clea de Peau is my favorite (and crazy pricey)! I use Mac’s moisture cover conceal in NW20 on most days to try to save my Clea de Peau concealer. Urban Decay lip liners (and eye liners) are great! My current favorite is Wallflower. If you want lipliners on a budget check out Rimmel and NYX. They are pretty great too esp for the price. NYX pigments are another favorite of mine and dirt cheap! Laura mercer tinted moisturizer is great for everyday use. If you want more of a full coverage I like Laura Mercier silk creme foundation.
On the cheeks my go to blushes are Illamasqua and Laura Mercier. They are a little pricier but the color pay off is great and last a long time. Also in yesterdays makeup post I was wearing Revlon lipstick in Smoked Peach. Its my go to pink/nude lipstick of the moment. Loreal infallible eyeshadow is a new product I’m loving lately. I snagged a few colors and think I may pick up a couple more! Lastly Laura Mercier metallic creme eyeshadow in burnish copper is one of my favorite products. It really makes light eyes pop. (A lot of you were asking about my makeup from my baby shower and this is what I was wearing on my eyes) I hope this was helpful and answered some of your questions.
*I also posted a link on the Honeybee FB page to my girlfriends page “Makeup by Melina”. A lot of you were asking about my makeup for our maternity shoot and Melina did my natural smokey eye! She has done my makeup over the years and is super talented! I love seeing all the pics and work she does on gorgeous models! She recently worked on VS model (John legends fiancé) Christine Teigen who I think is absolutely stunning!!! If your located in OC she does great bridal makeup as well! xo
