I'm sure like many of you when I think of Amazon I think of books, iphone cases, tech gear etc. However, there is a surprising amount of beauty products too (almost all my favorites - and sometimes cheaper too, bonus!).. And I mean who doesn't love shopping in their PJ's with 2 day free shipping?! Plus it beats schlepping it all the way to the mall.
Here is a few of my favorites and why I love them.
Face: I tend to stick with a tinted moisturiser vs. foundation, I feel I don't need full coverage under the concealer and powder, it can all feel a bit cakey on my skin and I am on the dryer side so moisture is good. I've also been playing around more and more with highlighting/contouring (I'm normally a less is more kinda girl) and you want a nice light concealer for highlighting around your eyes, forehead etc. After base and concealer is applied I like to using a face powder to set everything - the Giorgio Armani Powder is (like the name) silk on your face. I know beauty vlogger Jaclyn Hill is a huge fan of this one! And while I'm on the subject, can we just pause to acknowledge how addicting it is to watch beauty vlogs & tutorials!?! I have fallen down that rabbit hole a few times and sometimes don't emerge until hours later (but when I do emerge you better believe it's with perfected wing tipped eyeliner) ;)
Contour: I've mainly used powder bronzers in the past, but like I said with dabbling in contouring I like the look of a cream based bronzer that can also be used for contouring your cheekbones. For blush I am a devoted fan of this NARS Duo blush bronzer, I still have my powder bronzer on hand for when I want it and I swear this blush looks good on every skin tone ( I wear it all year long).
Eyes: I know the eyeshadow I choose is a bit on the plain side but it's got a hint of shimmer so it's a great for casual everyday but also a nice base for you to play it up. Mascara is something I never leave the house without, it's all about the wand for me. A more affordable brand I also love is L'oreal Voluminous Mascara. For eyeliner I prefer gel as I feel I have a bit more control when putting it on, I love MAC Fluidline Gel Eyeliner and it seriously lasts forever!
Lips: Simple. You can never go wrong with a confident classic red.
