October Favorites

November 7, 2015


October was all about going back to the same products everyday. As boring as this might sound, the items used are pretty revolutionary – well, sort of..

The combination of the following four products has been key for perfecting my base: 1) Make Up For Ever’s Step 1 Nourishing Primer, 2) The Beauty Blender, 3) Clarins’ Everlasting Foundation, and 4) Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. These four items together provide you with sheer flawlessness. I don’t want to bore you with many details, but the final product is basically a long lasting naturally radiant unified looking complexion.

As Jac Vanek once said, “I like my eyelashes as black as my heart and as long as the list of people I want to punch in the face”. Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara make your eyelashes visible from 5 miles away. For realz. I always go back to Maybelline mascaras because of the drama they add to the look.

The last product on the favorites menu offer you irresistible lips. Mwah. The Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in Pillow Talk is this gorgeous my-lips-but-better dusty pink. The formula is not too drying and makes your lips look fuller and more plumped *inserts joke related to Kylie Jenner’s lips*. If I apply it all over my lips, I often like to pop CT’s lipstick in Bitch Perfect (still can’t get over that name) in the centre to add that extra lusciousness.

What are your October favorites? Have you tried these before?

    Hi Zein! I love your favourites this month-I cannot get enough of using my beauty blender when I want my base to last. My friend bought me the Maybelline Lash Sensational-am looking forward to using it! Love your header by the way-it’s beautiful!

    […] always been a fan of some Maybelline mascaras, but nothing beats Lash Sensational. The double-sided wand and the formula team up beautifully: they make your lashes longer and larger […]
