Spring Basics - Style Guide

Spring is my absolute favorite time of the year - the weather in Arizona is BEAUTIFUL, I get my first non-spray tan - tan of the year, vibes just seem to go all the way UP, and the layers start coming off!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being bundled up and hiding the fact that I've had a few too many Girl Scout cookies.... but sun dresses, florals, and the effortless yet cute look are truly my jam. 

Yes, I know Spring is TECHNICALLYYYY one month away but we've got to be prepared. 
So ladies, I give you my must haves for Spring 2020:

Makeup Products I LOVE

I love playing with Makeup. But, I wouldn't call myself a daredevil when it comes to my routine, I'm more of a do the same thing a million times because it's quick and easy kinda gal. I wear makeup once MAYBE twice a week (if I'm feelin' wild).. I try not to put anything on my face during the work week - it's just not necessary when you work in a warehouse setting (IMO). However, when you do catch me wearing makeup, you can bet that I'm wearing a skin tone neutral eye shadow and more often than not a light brown/golden shimmer on top of it. Though I don't wear makeup every day, I am still an absolute product junkie. I can't help it, it's a guilty pleasure. Based on my self-proclaimed status as a Makeup Expert (lol), I thought I'd share my current faves with y'all.

Primer: Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer - This is expensive, but, a little goes a long way and it's the only Primer that has ever gotten me through Arizona Summers without my makeup completely melting off.

Color Corrector: Dr Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 - This is the newest addition to my routine, as up until a few months ago, I was in denial about having problems with redness. Again - expensive but it truly works WONDERS.

Foundation: HUDA BEAUTY #FauxFilter Foundation - Shortbread 200B (when I am pale)//Cheesecake 250G (when I am tan)

Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer - 22N Light Neutral

Highlighter: Jaclyn Cosmetics Beaming Light Loose Highlighter - Bomb (golden sand tone)

Bronzer: Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder - Medium

Eyeshadow: Jeffree Star Cosmetics Conspiracy Palette or HUDA BEAUTY Obsessions Palette Topaz - The Jeffree Star Palette is definitely great for adventurous folks, I use about 4 or 5 of the shades but the pigmentation is unreal. HUDA BEAUTY's palette is perfect for travel or just keeping in your purse for travel.

Mascara: Dior Diorshow Black Out Mascara - Kohl Black 099 - Rich Black

Lip: Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick - Peaches and Cream Collection in shade Sex on the Peach - Spiced Mauve

Setting Spray - Morphe Continuous Setting Spray

Brushes: Morphe Brushes

Beauty Blender: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge - IMO this sponge is better than the brand name Beauty Blender.

Eyelashes - Baddie B Lashes - #SAUCY or #$NOB

There you have it. These are all the products on my face in the pic above and my constants for a glow up day. Shop all of these items below. xoxo
