July Beauty Favorites

July Cruelty Free Beauty Favorites

I’ve got my July Favorites for you today! It’s a palette heavy month because I’ve had more fun with palettes than anything else lately. These are the palettes that I’ve used on myself and my friends.

My skin was looking pretty horrible in this video. It’s all red. I put Too Faced Cocoa Foundation in Fair on my face to try and tone down the redness. It helped a bit but not as much as I’d like. While Fair does have a beautiful finish, it is too dark for my complexion.

3.  Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette
Cat themed and purple? The only way to top that would be poodles and teal blue. Seriously though, this is a fun palette. Everyone in my Makeup Wars group loved this palette so much that we teamed up to bring you 13 tutorials and looks to give you ideas on how versatile it is. See my Jungle Love tutorial and the rest.

4. NARS NARSISSIST Smokey Eye Palette
I was surprised by how much I loved this palette. Mekong looks amazing with my eyes. Bali is perfect for softly smoking out the eyes or filling in the brows. Madrague I is a great base shade. See my tutorial with this stunning palette.

5. NARS Eye Paint in Black Valley
This is my favorite black eyeliner. It works as an eyeshadow too. You can use it on the waterline, tightline with it, smudge some black eyeshadow on top, or a color, and you’re set. See some of my NARS Love.
