So I did this with the Sephora website and a lot of people seemed to like it…I know I love reading these posts and watching these videos. So I thought why not do a little series on it?! I wanted to try it with youtube today and hopefully Ulta, Instagram, Snapchat, and Walgreens (for a wonderful drugstore one) at some point. For these challenges I search what type of makeup I want and then pick out of the first two things to pop up. If you would like to see more of these then let me know!! Enjoy!!
Primer (Search ‘Makeup Primer’)
L’Oreal Studio Secret No. 1 –> Buy Here
So as you can see I went with the L’oreal Studio Secrets Primer from the first video that popped up when I searched ‘Makeup Primer.’ It just happened to be a wonderful Jeffree Star video and I will try anything he uses on his channel! I did have this already and I do really still love it…it just happens to feel a little heavy on my skin so I don’t normally use it in the summer. It does keep my makeup set all day though, and conceals my pores quite well.
Foundation (Search ‘Makeup Foundation’)
Blur Liquid Matte Foundation —> Buy Here
For this one I decided to stick with the first video by thataylaa because I love my full coverage!! This one I actually had to go out and buy since I don’t really shop for Milk makeup. I really loved this one on first impression! It isn’t too thick but it covers great and it doesn’t have a fragrance which I love.
Concealer (Search ‘Makeup Concealer’)
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer –> Buy Here
I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to use Shape Tape…so when I saw the first video by Stephanie Toms I was overjoyed!! Yes…she is testing out a dupe for it but Shape Tape is still mentioned so I am going for it!! This of course worked like magic, because it always does.
Setting Powder (Search ‘Makeup Setting Powder’)
Coty AirSpun Loose Face Powder –>Buy Here
Both of these videos show a ton of powders but they both have the Coty AirSpun in them and that is an oldie but goodie. I really love using this for baking as well as all over the face because it never looks too cakey, just finished perfectly.
Bronzer (Search ‘Makeup Bronzer’)
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer –> Buy Here
Well Both of the videos were Hoola Bronzer so that made it an easy choice. I am also loving that most of these searches are already in my collection and already loved dearly. I love knowing I am going to have a good makeup day ;). This bronzer blends better than any other high end brand I know and the color isn’t too warm to where I look orangey which is always the goal.
Blush (Search ‘Makeup Blush’)
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow Blush –> Buy Here
A lot of these videos seem to be top 5 and top 10 of what I am searching for but I guess that still works since there are thousands of each product. I choose from the second video here the Physicians Formula Blush. This is another product I did not have in my collection so I had to go purchase it…but at $6 that is a o k. I really love the butter bronzer by Physicians Formula and this blush lived up to my expectations as well! It blended so nicely and was a nice mix of pink and coral color.
Highlighter (Search ‘Makeup Highlighter’)
ELF Long Wear Baked Highlighter –>Buy Here
I didn’t think picking the second video would be fair since there are so so many highlighters in it so I went with the Jeffree Star Video and picked the Elf one. I had to run out to target and buy this as well but once again…only $4, I love how affordable these are. This was more of a natural/subtle highlight which I really like for summer and days when I am outside a lot.
Eyebrows (Search ‘Eyebrow Makeup’)
Maybelline Tattoo Studio Brow Tint –> Buy Here
Well here only one of the videos was an actual product so I went with it. I did have to go out and purchase this one as well and lets just say I am not happy. It took forever to get the product out and it did not go evenly on my brows and did not stay put. I doubt I will be using this again…
Mascara (Search ‘Mascara Makeup’)
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara –> Buy Here
They do not sell the Milk Mascara at my Sephora so I had to run over to Ulta and grab the Lash Paradise…I had very high hopes for this mascara since Tati Westbrook always raves about it. Annnnddddd it really did live up to the hype. It goes on smoothly, not clumpy and makes my lashes look very long a beautiful!
Liquid Lipstick (Search ‘Liquid Lipstick’)
Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick –>Buy Here
I have been wanting to try these liquid lips out since they came out and now I finally had a reason too! Let me tell you…these smell so so so amazing I can’t even believe it! They go on evenly as well and last pretty long for a drugstore liquid lip. I will definitely be purchasing more and using them quite a bit!
Well, as you can see I skipped eyeliner and eyeshadow just because I don’t like to do that too much in the summer…I like to keep it a little more natural. But Overall today I was very pleased with my makeup. The brow situation just didn’t work out well but I can deal with that for a day. Let me know if you would like to see more of these!! And if you do one please let me know, I love to read these!!
