First up on the list is my tried and true "HOLY GRAILS " of all holy holies,
Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater!
This gentle and hydrating spray is perfect anytime and anywhere! I personally love to mist this on my clients before I begin any makeup application. This mist provides instant moisture to your skin and so refreshing to the senses with the herbs and rosewater! Rosewater balances your pH levels, tones your skin with its antibacterial properties, and strengthens your skin cells to regenerate skin tissues! Retailed at $7.00 you can't miss out!
"Ohhh RCM, Ohhh RCMA, Oh how I love thee Ohhh RCMA!"
Next up ladies and gents is thee, RCMA VK Foundation Palette!
The answer to, "How do you build a kit spending sooo much money on foundations?" and "Whats the best foundation to start out with when building my kit?" 18 creamy, blendable, and highly pigmented foundations in one palette ranging from lightest of lights to darkest of darks. This palette is made of plant wax, plant oil, and 50% pigment. No lanolin, mineral oils, or perfume so this is a definite "must-have" product! I personally love this for photography, film, bridal, or even everyday use as it's perfectly formulated for anything HD! The best way to use this product IMO is to scoop a pea-sized amount onto the top of your hand to warm up before applying to the skin with your fingers or a synthetic foundation brush.
3rd runner up is the infamous and always sold-out Morphe Palettes!
After Youtube sensations bragged all about these palettes it's almost impossible to get your hands on but thanks to Camera Ready Cosmetics, ya girl has snatched a couple up plus 20% discount! I absolutely love how versatile, blendable, and vibrant these palettes are! The 35P and 35O are always my go-to's for my clients. I love that they have shimmers, metallics, and mattes. Spritz a little setting spray on a flat brush, dip that thang in a shimmer/metallic shade, and you got a glistening angel beaming off the mountaintops of the Himalayas. Okay!!!! Gets on it.
Who knew condensing your top 5 favorite products would be this rough!
So it was a close call between Sephora's Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light and
BECCA's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
but BECCA took the gold due to versatility with skin tones. Opal is a golden opal pearl so you can use this on your pasty babies or on your dark skinned beauties without looking like Sir Cheeto Frump! Adding a drop of this into your primer or foundation or even just tapping it onto the highest points of your face will give you that perfect dew on a warm sunny day. Ain't nobody got time to be looking all flat! It's all about the glowww baby! Bringing out that "beauty from within"!
Lastly, my ultimate favorite House of Lashes Eyelashes Adhesive! Who doesn't love a good lash glue that doesn't take a century to dry? And latex free? And waterproof? And paraben/phthalate free???? SOLD. This glue comes with its own convenient brush to apply the glue seamlessly to your faux lash. The beautiful Victoria Espaldon put me on and I've never looked back. Hands down, 10 secs in and that baby is TAAAACKY! Duo who?
That concludes my current TOP 5 BEAUTY PRODUCTS IN MY KIT y'all! Thank you so much for tuning in to my very first ever blog. I'm so happy to have the time and ability to share my favorite products that will hopefully soon become yours too! Let me know your thoughts!
