Shout out to my fury friends, they keep me warm all winter long!



1. Josie Maran

Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee combines both coconut water and argan oil to make the perfect dynamic due for glowing summer skin. I love this product because it can be used both as a blush, but also as a lipstick; One product two functions ;).

2. Hourglass

The hourglass concealer is by far their best product. It will cover ANY and all blemishes. It is a very heavy product, so use sparingly and have it be your i.c.e (in case of emergency) product. It also comes in a small tube, so it is perfect to slip into a clutch or wallet when going out on the town. 

3. Tart

Tarte rainforest of the sea water foundation is a mineral based liquid foundation with SPF 15. It is heavier than a BB cream but doesn't feel like you are a wax doll in contrast to a MAC foundation, which is great for coverage but doesn't allow your skin to breathe. 

4. 100% Pure

100% Pure Maracuja Mascara makes you feel sweet all day long. Not only does it smell like chocolate (my favorite dessert), but it is free of chemicals. Mascara can cause eye infections and wrinkles under the eyes. This product will help minimize the effects of traditional mascara while illuminating those beautiful eyes.

5. Urban Decay

As most of you have probably seen, I apply make-up in a minimalistic fashion. The Naked palate, has been my go-to for years. It has enough variety to create any look and is a mineral based pallet, which will stay on throughout the day or night, but can be easily removed with face wash. 

6. Anastasia Beverly Hills

The brow kit is single handedly the best beauty invention. Eye brows are the window to the face and in this era, the eyebrow has become a distinguished feature in beauty.  Anastasia is known for her celeb makeovers and you can be apart of that list in the comfort of your own home. 

7. Kat Von D

Kat Von D is known for her vivid colors luscious lip products. A nice moisturizing nude lipgloss is all the rage these days and can help prevent dry skin.

Long live your smooches for the pooches!
