June/July 2019 Beauty Product Faves

Hey everyone, I haven’t done a beauty and makeup product favorite video in awhile and I miss doing them so I thought it would be fun to do a new summer product review and fave video on some of my fabulous new favorites for summer 2019 items, and possible all year round. Hope you enjoy my video and remember I have Patreon on my Youtube Channel now.

Upcoming products I will be reviewing soon!

This morning, I’m leaving for Boston but when I return, these are the products I plan on trying out. I’ve already tried the glosses which I’m packing in my makeup bag and I’ll probably try out the Tokyo Milk “French Marie Antoinette” lip balm and maybe the Elf primer but there’s no way I’m bringing my new Anastasia of Beverly Hills, “Alyssa Edwards” palette because I’d been waiting for it and it arrived last night and I will not risk it cracking in my bag. I’m sure I’ll have more to show and review besides what’s in the picture here. See you when I return!

Unboxing and Show & Tell of the GOTHIC BEAUTY, “Rebel Rose” from Wet n Wild

I was so excited for the ENTIRE LIMITED EDITION “REBEL ROSE COLLECTION” from Wet n Wild. Big shoutout to them for this. This collection is so gorgeous especially since it’s all about roses which you all know, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ROSES! Last week I shot two videos for my youtube channel about this collection because there was so much to unbox, look at, and discuss, and I didn’t want to make an hour long youtube video. Instead I did it in two parts which I will post both below. 

Let me know what you think of my videos please and if you have questions about any of the products mentioned in these videos. This is the very first collection from Wet n Wild that has SKINCARE!!!!!!!!!! It’s so awesome. Go check out the videos here and make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t already and leave your likes, and comments! Thank you so much everyone. You all are so supportive of me with the articles and videos I do.

Favorite Beauty and Makeup Tools

I’ve been asked quite a bit, especially when I used to work for the makeup department, as to what my favorite makeup brushes were and what are essentials tools to use for everyday makeup so I thought, why not post some of my favorite brushes and tools here? I use all of these items for everyday makeup looks and not just for photoshoots or special occasions. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t use ALL of these at once obviously, and I have more brushes and such in my makeup cart, but these are the brushes and tools that I use the most that work the best for me.

As far as brands go, there are many makeup brands that  produce and sell brushes, sponges, etc., but these are the brands that I happen to really like that are also affordable. If another brand works for use, by all means use it. Hope these suggestions help you decide what to include in your makeup collection and what essentials you should have in your arsenal.

One Disclaimer: I love the Morphe brushes, not because they are trendy and a lot of youtube beauty gurus use them. I truly love how blendable they are and help you apply your makeup flawlessly. Their prices are right also and can be bought online at Morphebrushes.com as well as their stores.

FOR THE FACE:

Original Beauty Blender- By now pretty much everyone has heard of and tried the beauty blender and there is a reason for that. It helps your foundation go on flawlessly. The beauty blender sponges are a lot different than sponges you find at the drug store even though the cheaper ones are marketed to look like the original ones. Honestly in the long run, it’s better to pay the twenty dollars for the actual original beauty blender that will work better and last longer than the cheap knock off drug store sponges that don’t really work and make your foundation come out blotchy.

   The only other makeup sponge that works well besides the beauty blender is the orange Real Techniques Sponge which you can get at Target and some of the drug stores but it’s not cheaply made like the drugstore brand sponges and works very well at applying your foundation beautifully.

Another essential tool to have in your makeup collection is a powder puff. You can get them pretty much anywhere and they are super cheap. They are perfect for blotting any excess oily or shine you make have during the day. They are easy to throw into your bag for quick touch ups.

Big fluffy Powder Puff Brushes- A large fluffy powder puff brush is an essential in doing makeup. You can basically use whatever brand you want for this type of brush. It just depends on your preference, if you want it firm or soft, etc. This brush is good for your powders such as concealing powder, setting powder, and blush. I found my beautiful purple and rose gold brush online and my larger one is from the brand, Matto.

Kabuki Brush- I love kabuki brushes because the way the bristles are formed allow the brush to hold more of your product which is great because you end up having to use less. The best kabuki brush I’ve used is the one from Bare Minerals. I use it for my powder foundation such as my Bare Minerals and MAC studio fix. The bare minerals kabuki will last you forever also.

Morphe M510 brush- Great for highlighting!

Eco Tools Highlighting Fan Brush- I love the brand eco tools and you can find them at target and drug stores.

EYE SHADOW BRUSHES AND TOOLS:

*These eye shadow brushes are super blendable and apply your eye makeup smooth and flawlessly.

Morphe tall blending brush M441

Morphe M443 shadow blending brush

Morphe Silver G26 shadow brush

Eco Tools Angled Shadow Brush- Perfect for adding crease colors

Shiseido Eyelash Curler- This is the best lash curler I’ve ever used! It is a little more pricey than curlers at the drugstore because it’s from Shiseido but it’s not crazy expensive it will last a long time and the refills barely cost anything.

 

Beauty Tag, “7 Deadly Sins”

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive product is actually a three way tie between my Wet n Wild Photo Focus Natural Finish Setting Spray,  Wet and Wild, Goth-O-Graphic Megaglow Highlighting Powder, and Wet n Wild Spring MegaLast Catsuit Liquid Eyeshadow in “Goth Tears” and my most expensive item is my La Mer Setting Powder. 

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Wet and Wild Photo focus foundation. When it looks good, it looks REALLY good but when it’s not working for me that, I get frustrated and wiping it off and the reapplyig another foundation can be time consuming.

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

My Jouer Long-Wear lip topper in “Rose Gold”, and my Sol de Janeiro Brazilian BUM BUM  cream. Both those products smell like cake batter.

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Contouring. I only contour during some photoshoots and performances, I never do it in my everyday makeup routine.

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

Probably my liquid eyeliner.

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

Well when I first met my husband I was instantly drawn to his eyes and his smile.   saw him for a second when he introduced himself to me and I knew he was the one I would marry him and he’d be the love of my life.

As far as makeup products that I lust for all my sexy red lipsticks in my collection!

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

 

La Mer foundation,  And also the ENTIRE Bomber Betty and The Balm Cosmetics collections.

Hope you enjoy my answers and this tag. If you’re into makeup and/or just love it, go to this beauty tag and have fun. I really enjoyed doing it. Talk to you all soon! 😉
