Can we talk about makeup for a minute? I'm into it.
It's weird because I never really was until about two years ago, when I hit 29. That's when I started getting more concerned about taking care of my skin, and along the way I got to appreciate makeup as well. Before it always seemed like a lot of trouble to go through, but putting on makeup is one of my favorite parts of the day, I find it soothing and just nice.
I also get probably a little over excited about researching and trying out new products, it's better than Christmas! These photos are some of my favorite/essential products and tools of the moment, things that I wear every day.
Also, I have to say I've learned so much from watching YouTube tutorials (how ever did people learn to put on cat eye eyeliner before YouTube?), and product reviews. And I'm not doing anything fancy at all, I love just watching how other wormen do their makeup every day. One of my favorite beauty YouTubers right now is this girl, I especially like that she uses and reviews a mixture of fancy and drugstore products, plus she's hilarious.
I'm kind of addicted to YouTube beauty channels in general. Do you have any favorite channels to share? Do you have any specific products you're really excited about right now?
In case you're curious the things pictured are: eyelash curler by Tarte (the best I've ever used!), Stilla eyeshadow in "kitten", Fresh sugar lip treatment SPF 15 in "honey" and "rose", Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in "natural beauty", the Real Techniques Blush Brush, a cheap Sephora blush brush that I use for highlighter, BeneFit They're Real! mascara (amazing!), Stila "Stay All Day" Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in "jet black", L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream in "fair" (thanks to Tristan for that recommendation!), Scotch Naturals nail polish in "paisley martini", Pacifica Lip Quench in "coconut pearls", Tarte EmphasEyes brow pencil in "medium brown".
