April Beauty Favorites

Some of my current favorites..

 

1. & 2. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue… And brush. This hydrating gel is great! Like a combination of tinted moisturizer, foundation, and BB cream. This only takes a little bit and is the perfect amount of cover. During last month’s beauty post one of our readers recommended it, and I am so thankful! Love it and the brush that comes with it. Goes on quickly and smoothly. 

Do I love this as much as Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer? I’m not sure. I haven’t used that in ages, but it has always been one of my favorites… But. This is less expensive and easier to get your hands on. I would and will use this brush with any future tinted moisturizer/foundation products that I get because it feels great and makes the product go on so evenly.

3. Fake Up Concealer by Benefit in Light. Favorite, favorite!! Maybe best under eye concealer ever! If I’m wanting this to last all day and night, I dust a little translucent powder on top, but this step is probably not necessary. I use ELF translucent powder that’s like $2 from any drugstore. This concealer covers and brightens and is amazing. I bought this for the first time at one of those Benefit vending machines in an airport because I was completely out of concealer on the way to Charleston back in the Fall. I have never been so thankful for running out of concealer and forgetting to stock up pre-airport. This stuff is great!

4. Highbeam Highlighter by Benefit. I’ve had this for ages, and it’s the perfect highlighter for Spring and Summer! A little goes a long way, but I use it on my cheekbones, then up and around to edge of eyebrows, then a bit in the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop, and lastly I basically dab a bit in a broken line down the center of my face… Forehead, nose, the dip between my nose and top lip… Basically my T Spot, so if you tend to have oily skin maybe skip this area. Regardless great highlighter, a classic – remember, the teeniest bit will work for your whole face. I apply with my fingers and lightly dab it onto my skin.
