I think writing about my 5 favorites of the moment will be a regular thing on Beautzy Blog! Back in June I wrote my first 5 list, featuring Nars, Kat Von D, Philosophy, Napoleon Perdis and Dermstore. My 5 favorites include anything I love now: long-time friends that get along with my skin, products I recently purchased that I use regularly, or (more than likely) things that I purchased a while back that I’m just starting to use often. Here are my 5 faves of the moment:
Tatcha Original Aburatorigami – Japanese Blotting Papers
These are my favorite blotting papers! Although a bit pricey, Tatcha Japanese Blotting Papers really do the job for my very oily face. They’re larger than a normal blotting sheet, so only one sheet is needed. Normally, I use 2-3 of the regular sized blotting sheets. They remove oil without disturbing your makeup, and my favorite part – they’re made with gold leaf flakes.
Cinema Secrets Ultimate Foundation
This is my go-to foundation for work. It’s a nice, creamy formula that blends well. It’s a full coverage foundation and easily covers any red marks or darkness by going just a bit heavier on those spots. Since it is a thick foundation, I always apply it with Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray or mix in a little primer to thin it out. Even thinned out, it covers remarkably.
NYX Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencil
I don’t typically use lip pencils on myself, but when I do, I almost always grab my Slim Lip Pencils. They’re creamy without being overly creamy, are long lasting, and always bring a rich color to my lips.
Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix
I have a few setting sprays that I love, but right now I tend to gravitate toward Mist & Fix each morning. It’s alcohol-free, has a nice smell, and doesn’t affect my skin negatively. It helps my makeup last and feels refreshing on my skin. A few light sprays in the a.m. and I’m good to go.
Dr. Brandt Flexitone BB Cream
I got this in the Sephora Sun Safety Kit and this is probably my favorite product from the bunch. It self-adjusts to your skin tone, helps to lightly conceal flaws, contains anti-aging ingredients and SPF 30. This is the perfect base for any tinted moisturizer I wear.
