Makeup Makeup Makeup!

I admittedly am not exactly a makeup aficionado. I may or may not beg my bestie and/or her sister to make me pretty all the time, because let's face it, I'm not the best at sculpting the "perfect eye". But with some practice I've managed to at least not elicit weird looks in Publix.

But today I need some face and lip product recommendations from y'all. My face regimen mainly consists of moisturizer and powder. I've been using MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural pressed powder and I REALLY like it. It's light, perfect for hot southern summers, but still has good coverage.

So I've got the powder covered, but with fall quickly approaching I think I'd like to try some foundation for a more polished office look. I was thinking about trying MAC's Studio Fix SPF 15 foundation, but if y'all have any better recommendations please let me know! I'm completely lost here folks.

Next month marks the beginning of my first semester of graduate school, Junior League duties, college football, and let's not forget about weekly bible study meetings and that full time job. I'm already seeing small dark bags under my eyes so I can only imagine what they're going to look like come August or September. So with that in mind, I think it's time to invest in some concealer. Again, I was looking at this creamy concealer from MAC, but am kind of afraid it will look too cakey. Have y'all tried it or do you know of something better??

And then last, but not least, I'm ready for some bright pink (almost neon) lips! I keep seeing these colors everywhere and I'm now on the hunt for the perfect shade. What a fun way to glam up any look right!? Trying to choose between these three right now, but I think NARS Schiap is in the lead. :)

Let me know what your favorite products are! Pretty please!?

I love Makeup Forever and Too Faced BBcream. They give you that flawless coverage, but feel light at the same time!

Cle de peau concealer is the best! I've tried everything for dark circles & this is hands down number 1! I order mine from Nordstrom.

I love MAC! I have never tried that foundation, but I wear Clinique Tinted Moisturizer (also spf 15) in the fall and winter because its better on your skin than foundation, easier to apply, and has a bit more of lighter coverage. For lips I really like Revlon Lip Butters, Stila Lip Enamel, Stila Lip Glaze, MAC Lipglass, and NYX lip glosses!
