There are days when I go without makeup, but on other days when I want to add a little “extra”,  I have a couple of go-to products.

Make Up Forever is my holy grail when it comes to foundations and concealers.  Even though the products are small in size, a little goes a long way.  As a person who’s tried plenty of drug-store products, I will say that the only products that come close to the quality of Make Up Forever is Cover Girl’s Queen Collection.  With a price point of under $12 (in most stores) you can’t go wrong, especially on those days when you don’t want to sacrifice using your expensive makeup.

Make Up Forever and Cover Girl’s Queen Collection are my favorite brands, for now. Maybe one day I’ll get over being a creature of habit and try others.

What makeup brands do you love?

    Estee Lauder!!! i love the double wear light foundation! My best friend who is hispanic started a job at macy’s with them and got me hooked! I was EXTREMELY suprised to find out they had makeup for my skin tone and she actually informed her manager that they needed to order more items for women of color. In turn i found out most high end makeup lines do offer darker shades and their stuff is the best to use. I have seen such an improvement in my skin since i switched over!!

  • Foundations – Tom Ford, Dior, Clinique, YSL
    Face Setting Spray – Skindinävia
    Blush – not a huge blush person but when I do, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, Nars and Tom Ford
