May 2017 Beauty Favourites, Style File Friday

For anyone who has been following this blog for a while, you will know that I’m really not awesome at the whole beauty/make up thing. I find it overwhelming, confusing, and quite frankly, just expensive. However, with a few gurus to lead the way, I’m slowly learning what products are a good investment and are good for my skin type and overall look. In the last few months, I’ve acquired a few new products that I’ve tested, and now love and recommend!

May 2017 Beauty Favourites,Style File Friday

Tarte Birthday Blusb

Amazonian Clay Blush in Partaaay, Tarte

For anyone who is versed in Sephora at all, you will know that all Beauty Insider membes get a small gift bonus (no matter what your spend level is). This was part of the Tarte set this year! I went with the Tarte set because a lot of the reviews for the Caudalie set had said that the tubes had been mostly empty, and I’m not big on changing up on my skin care routine. I will be honest, I hated the Tarte Lip Paint that came with this- it looked quite brown on me, and was incredibly drying. However, I do like this blush! I know that people swear by Tarte’s blushes, and I can see why. I’m not sure that I will be switching from my Clinique blush, but I would recommend this to anyone looking for a long lasting, lighter blush. It’s a flattering colour on me, and it is a well made formula!

Bareminerals Powder Foundation

Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF15, bareMinerals

I’m not a fan of liquid foundations- they take a lot more skill and work to blend, and I quite frankly don’t have the energy to deal with it in the morning. I currently use Maybelline Dream Mouse Foundation, and more like cover-up than true foundation. I wanted a light foundation, and my friend Kayla recommended this powder foundation! I’ve used it a handful of times and while it takes a little bit of time to learn how to use, it’s really easy to use. My mistake was not using enough the first few times, but I would spend a few minutes playing around to see what works for you. It’s perfect for a light coverage with SPF that can be applied quickly. (Also, no drying time!)

Clinique Crayola Chubbystick Tickle Me Pink

Crayola Chubbystick in Tickle Me Pink, Clinique

My love of Clinique chubbysticks is documented across this blog- they are easy to use, not too much colour, and relatively moisturising for a coloured lip product. (I mostly use Lanolin on my lips now, it’s all natural and allows your lips to breath and produce its own moisture.) When I saw that Clinique had partnered with Crayola to create a new line of chubbysticks, I knew that I had to get one! I chose Tickle Me Pink, it’s a light, cool-toned pink that works really well for the spring and summer. Also, the packaging is just adorable. This is my (not so) new favourite lip product!

What is your go-to beauty product I have to try?

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!

    Bare Minerals Bright Eyes. It’s an under eye concealer of sorts that make it possible for me to get away with just mascara on a busy day, and that’s saying something. LOL
