I’m not ashamed to say that I am a beauty junky. I have zero self-control in stores that sell makeup, whether it be a department store, ULTA,  or the beauty supply. I just love trying new things and seeing what works. As a result,  I have tons and tons of beauty products and tools, and I see no real signs of this “habit” slowing down. But like most beauty enthusiasts, there are a few products within my makeup bag that I gravitate towards and use the most. Here are few of the products that I use on a daily basis, and can’t live without!

L. A. Girl PRO Conceal HD Concealer, $2.99

I SWEAR BY THIS STUFF! I was super skeptical to try this concealer just because it was so inexpensive. But I kept hearing positive reviews, and when I finally tried it, I was DELIVERT! The coverage is great and is super blendable, I have even worn it as  foundation before.  I really love the shade Fawn and use it to highlight medium to dark skin tones. This line is so great because it offers a wide range of color options for women of color.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, $5.99pol_pl_Real-Techniques-Miracle-Sponge-gabka-do-makijazu-2973_3

This beauty sponge in the words of my good friend and fellow makeup artist Ash “changed the game” lol. There are a million and one makeup sponges out on the market now, but this one is truly different, because it is SUPER light and fluffy.  I also love that is has a slanted edge that makes for getting under eye areas really precise and smooth. This is a MUST BUY!

Black Radiance Bronze Glow , $4.99bronze glow

I use this pressed powder as my contour color daily. I have tried every “staple” contouring color under the sun, but wasn’t quite satisfied and felt as if I always had to keep building the shade. This matte powder  gives me the exact depth that I want without making me look like I have dirt on face. lol
