My 2011 Faves - 2 (Face)


Benefit Watt's Up Soft Focus Highlighter - This is soft and super easy to apply and blend. It is a very subtle highlighter, so it's great for making you look more awake without being obvious. And it lasts through the heat and humidity!

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Dark Bisque - This corrector helps to cancel out darkness under the eyes. I wear it under concealer when I want to look really "refreshed" and sometimes on it's own if I'm just running errands. It's very creamy and I haven't noticed that it creases.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark - I hated this at first because my skin was already breaking out and this seemed to make it worse. But my skin has since settled down and I no longer break out from this. I quickly buff this on over sunscreen during the day and I am amazed at how such a tiny little bit of powder can really even out my skin!

Sleek Makeup Blush in Suede - A great all-round blush that can be worn with basically everything. It's a matte shade, but still manages to give me a "glow", which is always a plus!

MAC Select Cover Up NC42 - I only ever use a teeny tiny amount of this, so I've been using it for months now and there's barely a dent in it. I actually apply this with a flat foundation brush to really help blend and pat it in. It's really great at brightening up the under-eye area.

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Sunbasque - This blush is great for giving a pretty, rosy glow. It's a sheertone so it's easy to build up and doesn't look obvious. I think this is one of my favorite blushes, and it works so well with bold red lips.

MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation NC 42 - I don't wear a lot of foundation. I think I only own about three bottles. I love this one because it's got just enough coverage to even out my skin, but not so much that I feel like I'm wearing a mask. And I love the smell! (is that weird??)

  3. I've heard so many good reviews of the watt's up highlighter. It's nice to have a gold based highlighter as opposed to the many pink highlighters on the market! xxx
