I haven’t updated my favorites list in a long while so I thought I’d do it today. Many of us are refreshing our makeup bags with new shades for the next season, refills, etc. Sometimes, if our skin is really affected by weather changes (depending on where you live), you will have to do a full change up! Below are my current favorites for the face. If you enjoy this, let me know and I can do more lists in the future!
Limelife by Alcone Perfect Foundation and Complete Concealer ~ Completely customizable, professional grade, highly pigmented, ingredient conscious makeup; buildable coverage foundation and waterproof concealers that won’t settle in fine lines or pores. I love that I can be natural or glam, matte or dewy with just one pallete. The #17 diffuser brush is my favorite way to apply. I am able to shade match you on any of the Limelife products and give you skin care recommendations as well. www.stephizbeauty.com
HUDA Beauty Baking Powder ~ this is a new addition for me but I love it. I need all the help I can get in the brightening department! The smell is a bit strong but I don’t mind it.
Tarte Shape Tape ~ this has been a bag staple for me for a long time for good reason. https://rstyle.me/~cz-aGDmJ
Marc Jacobs Beauty Bronzer ~ aka the “JLo Bronzer.” I ordered this in the hopes it would magically make me look like her but alas, no such luck LOL However, it is a fantastic bronzer in the perfect shade.
MAC Skin Finish ~ the most natural glow I’ve found!
Limelife by Alcone Perfect Bronzer ~ cool tones to contour and warm tones to add a touch of sun-kissed goodness. I love that you can get one or build a palette. Shade 2 is my favorite.
Limelife by Alcone Priming and Setting Sprays ~ I love priming sprays the most and they have been my preference for a long while. As far as setting sprays: there are two options. One is for oil control and the other is geared more towards normal to mature skin types. www.stephizbeauty.com
Kosas Oil Makeup ~ this didn’t have good reviews but was given an award by Allure Magazine. I’m a fan! https://rstyle.me/cz-n/edjs9cchqaf
Maybelline FITme Matte +Poreless ~ this is a great dupe to high end matte liquid products and it actually doesn’t dry me out like some. I am so impressed by this and it’s actually replaced my Double Wear!
Esteé Lauder Double Wear ~ speaking of Double Wear...this has been a staple for me for a long time. Super duper matte coverage that I typically only use for stage but many people use it as their everyday foundation. https://rstyle.me/cz-n/d26ugichqaf
Arbonne Liquid Foundation ~ such a pretty glowing finish with SPF! I have a few friends who rep this line. I plan on doing a blog post shouting out all small business owners that are more than deserving of your support!
Bare Minerals Tinted Moisturizer with SPF ~ this one has been in my bag for awhile. I don’t have a shade that currently works for me so I need to order a new one. https://rstyle.me/cz-n/dvn8yachqaf
As far as prep, I have a video coming with my skin care routine. I use all plant-based skin care from Limelife by Alcone along with my Gua Sha stone and Jade Roller. Video coming soon but below, I’ve link the products for you to peep...
