My Beauty Favs

Hey beauty lovers! Thanks for sticking with me and baring my long lapses in between content posts. This year has flown by and it’s almost one year since I launched Love, Lauren Michelle! Can you believe November is next week?

I have gotten a few questions recently regarding my favorite beauty products and what I use to get my every day look! Here is a full review on the products I use most frequently. I also recently got the opportunity to try Mikasa Beauty Techni Brushes, so I included a review on them in this post!

Make Up Forever Primer: My first step in any look is to use a dab of the Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer in my T-zone, forehead and chin. It is the only primer I trust to conceal my large pores and control my oil-prone T-zone!

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation: I swear by this foundation! The oil free base provides the perfect finish - not too oily and not too dry. It is also cruelty-free! My preferred method of application is using a wet black beauty blender pro. My shade is Natural Beige in the winter and Honey in the summer!

Mikasa Beauty Techni Brushes: I had been wanting to try these brushes and when Mikasa Beauty I just had to say yes! I love how soft they are and how easy they make it to apply foundation and other products. The best part is that now I am a part of their affiliate program!

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara & Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash: This combination of is awesome. I don't use them as much now since I got eyelash extensions. But everyone used to think that I had falsies on when I used this duo. Highly recommend!

Kat Von D Ink Liner: By far, the absolute best eye liner out there! I was known to rock a cat eye daily before my lash extensions. Now, I add KVD's Ink Liner in Trooper to create a dramatic look for a special event. The staying power is incomparable!

MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul: Latest and favorite blush discovery! It isn't super pink, which I love. When I want something a little more pink, I layer in a freebie NARS Blush in Goulue that I got as a gift for becoming a Sephora VIB Rouge member.

Sephora Collection Bright Future Concealer & Color Correctors: I use Green Color Corrector to block out redness, Melon to block out dark under eyes and Custard Concealer to highlight under my eyes, the bridge of my nose and an inverted triangle on my forehead.

MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder in Medium: An awesome setting powder to lock everything in and mattify my face.

Bare Minerals All Over Face Cover in Pure Radiance: This is by far my best kept secret! I tried this product in a 500 point Sephora reward bundle. I use it as a highlighter, although I am not sure that it is truly marketed as one. Either way, it is a MUST have!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water: I love this setting spray to hydrate my skin and lock in my look - day or night! You can technically use it before or after you apply your makeup since it duals as a primer, but I prefer after. And since it's oil free, I don't have to worry about spraying it with my lash extensions!
