It wasn’t until recently that I became fascinated with makeup. I’ve been wearing it on a regular basis since 8th grade but never really experimented with it until my twenties. I catch myself wearing the same look everyday and have made it a goal to widen my horizons by playing with different products. Above, I have listed some of my tried and true favorite makeup finds. I cannot say enough good things about the Urban Decay Naked2 palette. Sure, it’s a steep price, but you really do get your money’s worth. I have tried every color in it and love how pigmented each shade is. I use Maybelline’s color tattoo cream shadow as a base and finish with a smoky line of Nyx kohl eyeliner and a swipe of Maybelline’s Falsies mascara. I’ve never been a fan of lipstick but love, love, LOVE, Clinique’s chubby stick lip balm. It gives me just enough color without the heavy feel you get from typical lipsticks.
