A few of my favorite things from 2014


I know I'm late for this post and its probably a better time to post a monthly favorites but lets pretend that its still the first week of January and not almost February. 2014 in terms of beauty was fantastic for me. Last year was the time I was able to experiment more with makeup and delve into high end brands such as MAC. 

Nyx blush in Terracotta: This blush is a beautiful peachy shade with lots of shimmer but it isn't overpowering. I love using it everyday and it has a lot of product- I haven't even made a dent in it. 

MAC Fix +: This spray is a great multi tasker. It can be used to "set" your makeup, it can help tone down a powdery face, sprayed on an eyeshadow brush to make an eyeshadow have a metallic, more pigmented finish, and when I went on vacation to Colombia I would spray it on my face to cool down.

MAC Prolongwear Concealer in NC42: THIS IS MY HG CONCEALER. I have tried so many concealers and they do not compare to this concealer. You only need the tiniest bit, its full coverage and it can last you a year so the price isn't a big issue. The only downside is the fact that its glass packaging so make sure you don't drop it because it will shatter.

Wet n Wild Megalast eyeliner: Super black, matte and cheap. Enough said.

Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder: I love using this powder to set my concealer and foundation- it doesn't feel heavy on my skin. I have no complaints about this powder which is great because I was considering on buying MAC MSF Natural before I purchased this powder. I saved myself $30- sweet!

e.l.f Eyebrow Kit in Medium: I have already hit pan on it and I love using both sides to fill in and set my brows. This really keeps my brows in place and its such an amazing deal at $3.

Wet n Wild Coloricon pencil in Dark Brown: I have been using this pencil for YEARS to fill in my brows- I prefer this one more over my e.l.f one because its a slightly better color for my brows.

Wet n Wild Coloricon pencil in Black: I have also been using this pencil for a long time. Its super cheap and I use this on my lower lash line.

Small Kabuki Brush: I purchased this from ebay for less than $2. Its very soft and I love using this to blend my concealer. I'm definitely going to purchase more of these brushes.

Flat Top Kabuki Brush: My absolute favorite brush to apply foundation. I also purchased this brush from ebay and for the price that I paid this brush is phenomenal. The brush hairs are packed tightly so it makes blending a dream.

What are your 2014 favorites?
