benefit watts up

after doing my favorite skin care products of 2016, i decided i might as well do one for makeup too so here it is. my favorite makeup to use on a daily basis:

primer: smashbox photo finish primer water, benefit porefessional, honest beauty everything primer (luminous base). i also use the l'oréal paris magic anti redness correcting primer on my cheeks

foundation: it cosmetics cc+, l'oréal infallible pro-glow, clinique even better, and the tarte amazonian clay is good but a little too heavy for every day but i do like it

concealer: tarte cc undereye corrector, maybelline better skin, too faced born this way

setting powder: nyx hd translucent finishing powder or the airspun loose face powder to bake if i feel like taking the time

highlight: glossier haloscope, benefit watt’s up, laura geller easy illuminating stick in gilded honey (i also like this shade in the baked gelato swirl one), mary lou manizer by the holy grail

contour/bronzer: benefit hoola, urban decay beached bronzer, too faced cocoa contour kit. sometimes i like to use cream contour so on those days i’ll resort to the clinique chubby stick or the abh stick foundation in the shade “fawn”

brows: abh brow wiz, abh clear brow gel, maybelline brow drama mascara

eyeliner: if i use eyeliner, i’ll use a liquid to line my upper lash line whether it be the milani brow tint pen or the maybelline felt tip pen. if i do a wing i like to use the nyc liquid one

mascara: i’m super picky about mascara and i rly hate high end formulas SO. i use l'oréal telescopic, butterfly sculpt and maybelline push up angel

lips: i have so many favorite lipsticks but normally i do a nude pink. lately i’ve been lining w nyx nude liner and mixing the buxom lipstick in the shade sydney with tarte’s namaste. slay by bare minerals is also a favorite bc it smells so good omfg

setting spray: makeup forever, l'oréal infallible, mario badescu rosewater


Cate Tries To Photography: Highlighters/Illuminators

Today I am going to talk about highlighters. I have a ton of highlighters, and most of them I really love! A lot of them are affordable, which makes them even better, because while I love my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors, I mean, I work retail. Inexpensive is always better.
