Happy Friday! I’m so behind on everything this week because my final project was due for the class I am currently taking. We were only given one week to work on it, so it has been tough! Thankfully it is all finished and I have a break this weekend to relax.
This week I’m going to do something a little different and show you all the make up that I use on a daily basis. One of my favorite things to read on other people’s blogs is the combination of products they use to put on their “every day face.” I like trying out new products and switching up my routine every once and awhile.
These are my every day products:
Make Up Forever HD Powder
Make Up Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duality Highlighter
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil
L’oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
L’oreal Voluminous Manga Mascara
MAC Mineralize Blush
Kat Von D Shade & Light Palette
My eyeshadow varies daily and my blush often does as well. Right now I’m looking for a blush that lasts ALL day. By lunch time mine has already worn off. Does using a cream blush and applying powder blush on top help it last? If you have any tips or product suggestions let me know!
My face after my routine smiling because it’s Friday!
Have a lovely weekend!
Recently released by Kat Von D, the Shade + Light Contour Palette features three highlighting shades and three darker shades for contouring. It is comparable to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. Anastasia’s kit has been on my wish list for quite some time but, I was a little hesitant to purchase it because of the price and the fact that I am still unable to get the right look when I try to contour. So far the best combination I’ve found is adding a darker foundation to contour areas and add a little bit of bronzer to the areas once the darker foundation is blended into my usual foundation. I like Maybelline Instant Age Rewind and Naked Flushed. Unless I’m going out somewhere at night I prefer to make a subtle contour during the work day.
My thoughts about the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette:
- Sturdy packaging
- Clear Mirror (unlike some palettes that have a cheap plastic one)
- Blends Easily
- Smooth Finish
- Colors may be a little too light for some skin tones
- Too much sparkle in the darker colors
Overall this is a quality palette that I am happy to add to my collection. Kat Von D also released a contour brush along with this palette, that I plan to purchase. At $36 the brush is pricey but, I have other Kat Von D brushes and they are super soft and durable. I’m in need of a really good contour brush!
I’d love to hear your thoughts! Does anyone have both the Anastasia & Kat Von D palette? How do they compare?
