Misti’s Beauty Favorites for May!

Dermablend Pro Loose Setting PowderDermablend Pro Loose Setting Powder

Setting powder is a must-have in the beauty world and my all-time favorite is the transparent loose setting powder from Dermablend. This powder is so finely milled that you can bake those under eyes without worrying about a cakey finish.

Smashbox Primer Water

Smashbox Primer Water I will admit, I was REALLY doubtful when Primer Water came onto the market but I have to admit that after a few weeks of use I’ve found them to be awesome. My favorite is the Primer Water from Smashbox. This one gives my skin a good hydrating boost that is great for my light makeup days and a good base for my more heavy duty primers when I go for a full face.

tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation
tarte Rainforest of the Sea™ Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15

A good buildable coverage foundation is hard to find but this baby from tarte is my all time favorite. It’s got a dropper applicator so you can control coverage plus it is full of “good for your skin” ingredients like 20% water to help with hydration, SPF 15, of course the antioxidant-packed Rainforest of the Sea™ complex.

Confidence in an Eye Cream

Confidence in an Eye CreamThis eye cream is like a jolt of caffeine for the eyes. I’ve been using this baby every night for the last few weeks and I can see a huge different in my how my eyes look. The under eye area is firmer, my dark circles look less noticeable and overall my eyes look more awake.

Benefit Hoola LiteBenefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer

Like any good beauty junkie I love the original Hoola bronzer from Benefit however it was always just a little too orange-ish for my super pale complexion. Thankfully Benefit heard our pleas and now there is Hoola lite, all the same matte bronzer goodness as the OG formula only a little on the cooler side, so us pale beauties can contour away to our hearts desires.

    You should, Marie. The eye area has no oil glands. When you pull out your eye to line or for other makeup, it doesn’t snap back like other skin. It wrinkles first, fast and furious. I know you’re young but it’s something I feel every woman should use. My nickel. 😉

      The Curvy Fashionista I didn’t start using an eye till last year when I turned 35. Mainly b/c I have such sensitive eyes it is hard to find one that doesn’t drive me crazy, but also I was in denial of heading into my mid-30’s.
