My Best Friend Raids My Beauty Stash
So we're coming to a close on my daily posting and of course, my draft for Saturday's post did not save. So I scrambled to put something together and while my best friend was over at my house hanging out before we had an early birthday dinner, I had her raid my beauty stash to see what she would choose. I may have mentioned before that I don't really tell too many people that I have this space, although it really wouldn't be too hard if they just googled me (doubt they would tho). My best friend definitely knows and she's a regular reader - great that she also loves makeup! *She's much more behaved and mostly buys makeup when she needs it. **She also does some of the best eye makeup and winged liner I've ever seen - forever jelly.
Of course this was all for fun so she didn't actually try anything on, but she picked items based on what looked interesting to use, items she had never tried, and items she had read about. I gotta say, she ended up with a pretty great assortment of products! My only request was that she cover all her bases and pick up everything to create a full face. Here's what she went with:
For the face she'd go with the Laura Mercier primer and the NARS Velvet Matte Tinted Moisturizer Foundation on top. To go in and cover anything extra she'd use the NARS Creamy Concealer. On the cheeks she would go with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette as it's a thing of beauty and has everything you could need from a setting powder, blush, and bronzer to leave you with a healthy glow.
On the eyes she opted for the Lorac Unzipped Palette as it would be comparable to the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette in color which is one she reaches for often. She's a pro at applying false lashes and every time I go on a trip with her, I'll bring a pair cause I have her to help me apply them flawlessly for a night out. She'd go for Esqido lashes which are absolutely beautiful - and since they can be worn multiple times it's a much better bang for your buck and better for the environment. To line her eyes she'd go in with the Bobbi Brow Caviar Gel Liner to add in that perfect winged liner. To top off her brows she would use the ABH Brow Wiz to frame the face.
On the lips she'd go for the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Pepper as it's a color she can see herself reaching for.
For all the brushes she ended up reaching for Zoeva brushes as she thought all of them were super soft. Can't argue with that as I have mostly Zoeva brushes on rotation.
If you could raid any one beauty bloggers stash, who would you choose?
