Call Me Ang: Go-To Cosmetics

Go-To Cosmetics

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

I had numerous people contact me regarding the makeup I used in my photo.  While I normally do not like to wear a face full of cosmetics, there is the rare occasion where I need that extra boost.

 Lately, I've been wearing Makeup Forever HD foundation (color 118). This is the first, and only product that I have used from this line. I have to admit, I'm pretty crazy about the coverage. I've always been a loyal Bobbi Brown consumer, but it's fun to try new products.

Believe it or not, with all the fancy brow tools out there, I prefer $2.00 Cover Girl brow pencils. True story, my eyebrows only grow halfway. They are the bane of my existence. I've considered using Latisse on my brows, but I'm afraid of where additional hair may sprout on my face.....My other drugstore pick, is Loreal Voluminous mascara. I've used this mascara since I was in high school...In other words, a long time! Full disclosure, I do get some transfer onto my upper eyelid with Voluminous, but I think that is a small price to for full lashes (and I've never found anything I like better). To avoid this, you could use the waterproof, but I choose not to, because I find it difficult to remove.

I am OBSESSED with Bobbi Brown eye liner...but I love the eyeliner brush even more! Trust me on this will love it too.

To get that dewy-glow appearance, I typically grab one of my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks (I own them all). The day these photos were taken, I was using the beige brick. I believe this has been discontinued, but Quartz is very similar.

My favorite color of blush is Bobbi Brown Slopes.  I seldom wear any other color. Lastly, the lip pencil is Bobbi Brown in Medium Rose and the lip color is Italian Rose with Almost Nude lip gloss.

I'm anything but a makeup artist. I alway strive to look natural. I know what works for me. You asked...and I hope these items work for you as well. While I just highlighted my favorite products, below you will find every product I used, to complete my look.
