Your skin tone/coloring: Below my name

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Danessa Myricks Vision Cream Cover Perfecting &Shaping Wand in TP01, Uoma Cleopatra Ink eyeliner in Blackety Black Y’All, Koh Gen Do Long Lush Treatment Mascara in black.

Favorite cheek products this month? Afrique Blush by Juvia’s Place in Serafina. Such a pretty coral. I also got a lot of use out of my Milani Bronzer in All Over Glow

Favorite base products this month? The Danessa Myricks Perfecting Wand above is the best color corrector ever. It erases the blue circles under my eyes and also cancels out most of my broken capillaries. I used up a promo size of Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas, which I loved and will buy in full size in the fall, and now I am using Catrice 1 Minute Face Protector. The Tatcha and the Catrice are totally different but they are both perfect primers for my Milani Conceal + Perfect powder foundation.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? MAC Haux eyeshadow, Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil, Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara. Since I’m wearing masks, I only do my eyes these days.

Favorite cheek products this month? Nope. Cheeks are hidden under the mask.

Favorite base products this month? Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation will always be my favorite base product. These days I only use it for touch-ups under my eyes.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Sugarpill Fun Size palette, my single shadows, and a couple of palettes I’ve been on the fence about that I’ve been challenging myself to use.

3.) UD 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils in Alkaline, Stash and Night King.

Favorite cheek products this month? UD Jawbone, MAC La Leyenda EDSF Highlighter, MAC Cheek Pollen, and UD NOHO.

Favorite base products this month? Favorite? Gee, idk…I’m pretty much stuck using MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof foundation in NC41 because even though I’m scrupulous about protecting my face from the sun, it needs to match the rest of me. Problem is, this foundation works great when we have more humidity in the air than this summer’s NonSoon. So this looks kinda dry and flat this year. Plus, I do need a darker shade. I’m just too cheap to do that! Besides, I’d probably get the Studio Sculpt formula instead. Not sure if MAC Stores are allowing shade matching during the covid pandemic?

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool

1. Hado Labo Plumping Gel
2. Natasha Denona Biba e/s
3. Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum
*Favorite cheek products this month? Natasha Denona Bronze Face Glow palette with The Balm Desert bronzing as a base.
*Favorite base products this month? The sunscreen listed above with MUFE matte velvet blurring powder foundation to add a bit more coverage. I’m not sure if this would qualify as my absolute favourite powder foundation, but MUFE is so incredibly good at undertone range and I found a shade which works well with my summer skin.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale/warm. blue eyes, dark warm brown hair

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?

Fenty Sun Stalk’r Bronzer in Inda Sun
Thrive Causemetics Mascara
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in Be My Highlight 01

Alamar Cosmetics Blush Trio!

Favorite base products this month?

Other than the above, Dior Backstage Primer, Loreal Infallible Concealer, and Fenty Cream Bronzer in Amber (great contour!)

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?:
Chanel’s Tisse D’ Automne quad; City’s Color’s Cleo and my CP lipstick in Tea Thyme/Foolish

Favorite cheek products this month? I am finishing off my EA Sweet Peach blush – I have hit pan and am just about to use it all up.

Favorite base products this month? PNF Dragon’s Blood Daily Moisturiser with SPF 20

I love that Chanel quad but here on the opposite side of the Equator, it’s high summer (temps upwards of 30C), though I remember when I first got that quad, it was sweltering and yet I was so thrilled by it that I wore it in the extreme heat “just because”.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Colourpop Super Shock Shadows in “Let Me Pass”, “Like a Shot”, and “Warrior”, Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in “Sunkissed Bronzer”, and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in “Champagne Pop”

Favorite cheek products this month? Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in “Sunkissed Bronzer”, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in “Champagne Pop”, and Colourpop x Pony Park Super Shock Cheek in “Simply Sweet”

Favorite base products this month? I’ve been using the deluxe sample of the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream as a primer and it works great. Expensive primer though

Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? First product is My Smashbox Contour kit. I bought it on a bit of a whim and I’m just loving it so much. I like it even better than the NYX contour kit I purchased last month. I’m getting pretty darn good at contouring my face and keeping it natural 😉 I never thought I’d say that haha. Always shied away from contouring before.
Second is Ofra matte liquid lip in Nude Potion. I’ve been wearing my liquid lips at home to use them up before they go bad, and I have to say this is my all-time favorite Nude shade. I think it was originally a collab with Nikkie Tutorials (I’m not sure as I don’t watch her channel)
Third is my BH Cosmetics Brazil palette Rio edition (the all shimmer one) I’ve been playing a lot with colorful eyes to offset the sad looking masks. This palette has so many color options along with transformer shades, while the palette size remains manageable thanks to the tiny pans. I will take that any day over palettes with giant pans… I don’t think I’ve ever completely panned an eyeshadow before it went bad.

Favorite cheek products this month? Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Thrilled and Nars Blush in Deep Throat. I like that one much better than Orgasm. Yay for mini sizes.

Favorite base products this month? Maybelline Fit Me Dewy in 120 Classic Ivory. It’s a dull muted peach that works perfectly for my skin tone. I have yet to find a better match in a liquid foundation, and I really like the formula. That was another big win for me this month.
