hey blondies. you know how they say blondes have more fun? that’s not always true when it comes to our make-up routine. being fair skinned can prove to be difficult when picking out the perfect shades to flatter our look. i admit, i don’t always spend as much time on my makeup as I should, but when using the right products and the right techniques, it can prove to be worth the time.
i sat down to scroll my insta feed to see which products were claiming to be the latest and greatest. i’m no jacklyn hill, but here are my must-have picks for all the blondes in the world:
primer: too faced hangover replenishing face primer. this is your skin's answer to a makeup meltdown. infused with coconut water and “like an energy drink for your skin,” it helps to create a shine-free canvas for foundation. #yesplease
foundation: younique liquid foundation (in tafetta for me). i like to start my makeup routine off to a smooth start with this liquid to powder foundation. beside the flawless finish, it makes my skin feel nourished and hydrated. what more could a blonde ask for?
contour: tarteist(tarte’s natural ingredient driven sub-line) PRO glow to go. this palette is the perfect answer to showing off cheekbones with soft contouring and highlighting away with the 2 gorgeous and sparkly colors.
eyeshadow: morphe's 9C jewel crew eyeshadow palette. this crazy-creamy palette is powerfully pigmented and beyond blendable to keep you covered from am to pm. time to shimmer on.
eyebrow: browgal skinny pencil in medium brown. these sweat and smudge proof pencils are the holy grail as they are blendable and easy to define the shape of your brow. they are perfect for the beginner brow girl or the expert. also, the shades were made specifically for celebrities such as megan fox and fergie. #soglamorous.
mascara: too faced better than sex mascara in carbon black. all your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will be fulfilled once using this better than sex mascara. the hype is real.
lipstick: tarte color splash lipstick Rainforest of the Sea Collection in Island Life. full coverage lips to last you all day long. drink up, buttercup, that lipstick isn't going anywhere.
