Current Makeup Favorites February 2018
Thank goddess it’s Friday! Today I’m sharing my cruelty free current makeup favorites for February 2018. I haven’t done a monthly favorites video in a while and since it’s really more the middle of the month, I’m not going to call it a monthly favorites. I’ve been super busy due to issues in my personal life (don’t worry, my job is going well and my marriage is going well, I’ll fill you in when I can), so I’m not getting enough sleep and barely having any time to blog or create videos (though I haven’t missed my Wednesday videos).
I thought I included all the cruelty free makeup products I wanted to discuss in this video and then when I was editing realized I left 2 products out, so I added some text at the end. You know I’m not typically a bronzer girl, I rarely wear it, but I’ve been loving the Laura Geller bronzer for my neutral makeup days. I put it on my cheeks and my eyes for a bit of natural color and it looks great. I also forgot to mention my Colorescience eyeshadow primer/color corrector spf 35. That product has been a life saver because it hides my dark circles and helps with the fine lines around my eyes. I need more quality sleep.
PR + Purchased by me.

To create my eyeshadow look for this video I used my DIY Jeffree Star Blood Sugar Palette Dupes. I did film a tutorial on it but I hate how the photos turned out. I keep having to move my lights around and then my lights + camera settings get changed and I take photos without them being on their optimal settings. Ug. My mistake for not remembering to check before I take photos.

Here’s the Colorescience Total Eye 3-in- 1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35 Primer on my pale skin. My left eye has primer. My right eye is naked.
As I mentioned above, I forgot to mention in my video (due to my lack of quality sleep) that I’ve been loving the Laura Geller Beach Matte Baked Hydrating Bronzer in Sunrise Fair. I’m wearing it in both of the photos above. I find it gives me a nice glow without being super orange. I can now understand why a lot of bloggers like to wear bronzer as blush. I think it looks pretty flattering on me!
I used Colorescience Total Eye 3-in- 1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35 Primer to hide my dark circles and as my eyeshadow primer in the look above. I layered 3 of the Urban Decay Heavy Metals neutrals on the lid and blended them into the crease. I used Sunrise Fair as my crease color. I then layered Stila Fairy Tale on the lid and lower lid.
