Let’s Makeup! 

20 Nov

So this post is going to be a little different than my usual posts. I wanted to do a post about my love for makeup & all my favorite products! 

I have loved wearing makeup since I was a little girl. In fact, I actually wore red lipstick for picture day in Kindergarten! *Note: looking back that was not the best choice! 😜 I looked a little like this: 

 
Okay, maybe not that bad, but you get the point! Anyway, my makeup choices and styles have greatly evolved over the years. In my teenage years I was ALL about bright colored eyeshadow! Neon green & pink, as well as bright blue and purple. 

  
That was circa 2008! Then came the dark eyeliner phase around 2009…there were times I looked like this

Check out Hannah & Kaylee videos…link to this one in the paragraph above!

 
As a side note, I’m not the only one who loved putting on makeup as a little girl…my three year old niece does too! 

She has on purple eyeshadow here! 💜

 
 

She even loves doing my makeup! 😉

 
So now we come to the present. My style of makeup has toned down a lot since my bright pink eyeshadow days. I like a more natural look with light pink blush and light brown and nude eyeshadow. I’ve learned that wearing makeup is about highlighting the natural beauty God gave you. Here is a more recent picture…

  

Now I am by no means a makeup expert and everyone has their own style of applying and what products they use. I have tried many, many different brands and products ranging from all different prices. Most of the makeup I’ve discovered to be the best can be purchased at your local drugstore, however, there are a few that are more expensive but so worth the extra money! Here are my favorites:

  
First we have concealer. I have dark circles under my eyes and of the dozens of concealers I’ve tried, this is hands down my favorite. It is around $18 a tube, but it will last months. So worth the money!

  
This lovely foundation can be found at Walmart or your local drugstore. It is about $10 and is very long lasting! I’ve been using it for a few years. 

  
Can you say “best powder EVER?!” This is it. I discovered this probably two years ago thanks to my sweet sis-in-law! It is a little on the pricey side, but worth every penny. 

  
I’ve been using this bronzer for close to 5 years. It is low priced and one container lasts forever! 

  
I have tried expensive blush and cheap blush. My problem was always finding a blush that lasted until the end of the work day. I discovered this jewel and I’ve been using it for close to a year! 

  
I have used this eyeliner for years and I don’t plan on stopping! You should try it out, you’ll thank me later! 😏 This $8 eyeliner even stays on when you cry. It’s the best!! 

  
I discovered this lovely eye pallet about a year ago. For about $10 you can have a natural eye look that is simply gorgeous! 

  
Last, but not least…my favorite mascara. It is a little on the expensive side but it is fantastic! It doesn’t run when you cry, but comes off easily when washing your face. I have short eyelashes and this has made such a difference for me! I don’t even have to use an eyelash curler anymore!!!!! I used to do this all the time:

  
Not anymore though! Thanks Benefit

And there you have it, my favorite makeup products!

Until next time…stay beautiful! 💁🏻

Blessings,

Mrs. Hannah D. ☺️
