I have really gotten into make-up in the last 6 months. I haven't ever really known how to do my make-up as I was never really into it growing up. I started watching Kandee Johnson's videos and reading her blog (Kandee Johnson's Blog) and now I love make-up. If you aren't really that great with make-up I really recommend checking out her blog (just click the link above). Anyways, I thought I'd post all my favorite make-up for ideas for everyone else.
Sephora Brand Color Palette Eyeshadow
I never knew that you needed an eye shadow primer to make your eyeshadow go on smoother and last longer. Kandee Johnson highly recommends using it and the first time I did I realized why. You shadow doesn't smudge off as easy as it does without it and your shadow goes on much easier. If you are into using eye shadow this stuff is great to put on before.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
Kandee Johnson showed this product on one of her videos and so I bought it. Thanks to family genes I have dark circles. This REALLY works wonderful. Here's what it does: Completely camouflage dark circles, minor imperfections, and discolorations with this unique two-shade system: one to match the skin's depth of color and one to match the skins undertone. This must-have makes it possible for every woman to custom-blend her own perfect shade.
Buy, Buy, Buy if you have dark circles!

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Powder
What it is: A universal translucent finishing powder to be applied over foundation or worn alone.
What it does: Sets the foundation and slightly mattifies skin without changing its natural contours. This 100% mineral silica powder softens the appearance of imperfections. Completely evens out the complexion for a glowing, radiant look. One universal shade for all skin tones.
I use this to go over the Laura Mercier eye stuff. I seals it in and makes it not shiny anymore.

An employee at Sephora told me about this bronzer and how it can be used on anyone. She said it doesn't turn your face orange like most bronzers. I absolutely LOVE this stuff. It gives me a nice natural tan looking skin. You will love this stuff. Nars Bronzing Powder is a true brown-based bronzer with a gold shimmer fusion that's excellent for creating or enhancing the look of healthy, glowing, tanned skin.
I have this in Laguna which is the one the lady told me is best.

A maximum-shine, moisturizing gloss starring a new generation of "multi-holographic" shimmers, for perfect light reflection. The applicator on this lip gloss is awesome. It has a natural arch in it that matches the shape of your lips so it glides on easily without a mirror. It's also not sticky, the colors are beautiful and it stays on pretty good. I have it in two shades - 20 Shiny Perfect Nude and 13 Reflex Miami Pink

I hope that you all enjoyed this make-up blog post and that it helps you find new make-up to add to your collection. I also recommed watching Kandee's videos within her blog. She does make-up for the celeb's and is VERY helpful.
