What Makeup Do I Use?

By RaddestMom

Lots of people ask me what are some of my favorite brands. While I’m not a makeup artist, I do have lots of friends who are. Also, I’ve consistently had my makeup done professionally for work over the years. Here are some of my fav’s that I’ve used and continue to use:

1. FOUNDATIONS

My #1 is Cle de peau (it covers ANYTHING and doesn’t crease), #2 Le Mer, and #3 Josie Maran

4. BRONZER

Only bronzer I use anymore is Chanel (in soleil de tan). I love the color as it isn’t orange it just gives you a great color. Also, Nars in Laguna is a classic, great color as well.

5. BLUSH

Since I don’t look great with peachy tones, I prefer to use a little bit of a bright, bold color. My FAVORITE right now is “Desire” by NARS.

6. EYE LINER

I only use eye liner on the top of my eyelids, like a cat eye. I don’t usually wear eye shadow. The eyeliner I love that doesn’t smudge and is super easy to put on is “aquaeyes” by Makeup Forever. It has a pointed tip for extra easy precision. Pretty much impossible to mess up.Try it in brown for a less severe, more sexy, natural look. It also comes in a ton of different colors!

7. MASCARA

I am a mascara snob. First, ALWAYS CURL YOUR LASHES! I find Mac has some pretty good mascaras. I’ve used them all, along with every other brand at Sephora. My favorite right now is Mac’s “Extreme Dimensions Mascara”….I like the look of a thicker lash. This certainly does the trick. Easy to apply, and the brush is good. Another good one from mac is their “falsies”.

8. LIPS

I am always a fan of a good nude lip, especially if you have thick dark lashes, and a dark eyeliner on. Some of my favorite nude lip colors are:

Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick- Dolce Nude (they recently changed it to Honeymoon I think but it’s one of my fav colors ever)

Buxom Brand- Marrakech (it’s a matte color)

Nars- Tashkent (also matte)

Mac- Myth

Tomorrow I will post a video of me doing my own makeup, so you can see how important it is to use good brushes!

HANDBAG & SHOE LUST!

By RaddestMom

REALLY excited for my first fashion post. If you know me, you know how much I love shoes. If you REALLY know me, you know how much I adore handbags. Really loving all of the fall trends this season, especially the different shades of red. Chanel and Celine are killing it as per usual! It’s funny, because I used to dislike Celine bags….but after a while, they grew on me, now I love them!

I have a great contact at my favorite department store in Beverly Hills who takes photos of every new shoe and handbag that goes through the store and emails them to me! I’d be happy to share them with you, now! Here are some photos of a few fav’s that I’ve seen recently. Scroll down for a slide show of eye candy ;)
