Growing up as a competitive dancer, my life revolved around makeup. It was always full glam at competitions! Eventually I even got to a point where I couldn't recognize myself without full glam on!
These days though, as I am retired from dance and in my older days (yes I truly feel ancient as a 24 year old lol) I like to go for the more natural look or not even wear any makeup at all! Letting my skin breathe has done wonders for my complexion.
I am always on the lookout for the best new products money can buy when it comes to makeup. One brand I recently discovered the past year is IL Makiage. What attracted me to them was their color match foundation quiz. Basically they ask you a series of questions about your skin and form a foundation and color unique to you based off your answers. I thought that it was also really cool that they allow you to try out the foundation when they send it to you and if you don't like it, you don't have to keep it and can just send it back. I also got a free full size eyeliner to try which was a surprise in the box!
The foundation runs for about $35, but a little bit goes a long way and I have had mine for over a year now and still have so much product left! It gives me the perfect coverage and does not clog my pores which is amazing! I highly recommend you give them a try!
Here's a list of some of my other MUST HAVE makeup products that I highly recommend:
- Naked Lunch Mac eyeshadow
- Physicians Formula Insta- ready pressed powder
- Loreal Telescopic black mascara
- Nyx fill and fluff eyebrow pencil
- Nyx control freak eyebrow setter
- Physicians formula bronze booster
- Any Neutrogena foundations (these are great for light-weight everyday wear)
- Nyx eyeshadow base skin tone
Almost all of these can be purchased on my Amazon List available at this link:
