This post is a little late but life is crazy as I constantly say.
So in January I did not wear a lot of makeup but when I did it was usually very neutral.
Therefore some of my favorites were the Naked Basics 2, Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick, Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin Liner, E.L.F. Acne Fighting Foundation, and Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.
Naked Basics 2 or the original Naked Basics is the ideal palette for doing professional office makeup. Sometimes I will add a little splash for work but most days I wear an easy neutral and this palette lets me add a little depth to that look.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick is a great everyday wear. I'm partial to vintage pink because its a neutral pink. But their color range is fantastic. Its as moisturizing as a lip balm but with great color payoff.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner is great for doing a flick but does require a little practice. The color is also very opaque. Sadly it only comes in black, I would love to have it in brown too.
E.L.F. Acne Fighting Foundation is back in my lineup. I have learned that an open bottle of this will gunk up and not work well after 6-8months. However, it costs $6 and I notice my skin responding to the acne fighting ingredients.
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush is my favorite foundation brush hands down. I can get every spot on my face and it fits comfortably around my eyes and nose. I swear by having a buffing brush for foundation.
Finally, I have been loving the My Burberry perfume. My mom kindly bought it for me for Christmas, and my gosh it is expensive. But it is just such a pretty scent. I am the worst at describing scents, so I just recommend you find a sample.
