As I am getting older (groan) I have noticed the color under my eyes is a little darker and the glow in my skin is a little duller. - Staring at a computer screen for 10+ hours a day will do that to you. So I've stalked a few YouTube videos for a couple weeks and dreamed of being able to contour, shade and blend like a pro.
It probably isn't going to happen, so for now I will just settle on a couple items that may actually help my minimalist makeup look a little better.
The Beauty Blender - I am having a hard time splurging on a $20 sponge, but everything I read says to skip the imitation sponges and just buy the original out of the gate. - Kind of hard to justify when the "imitation" sponges are a fourth of the price at Ulta.
L'Oreal Paris BB Cream - I always thought BB Creams were just another item that genius marketing professionals had convinced us we need. My jaw hit the floor when I saw Kandee Johnson put on this BB Cream and it instantly evened her skin tone! It was magic in a tube. I'll probably hit up Target this weekend for some of my own.
Laura Mercier Concealer - This was another item I saw Kandee use and the finish was flawless - something I have yet to achieve on the soft skin under my eyes. Is it worth the price tag? I haven't yet decided.
Do you have any makeup staples that you swear by? I would love to hear about them (especially if they don't give me heart failure when I hear the price).
