Today for Makeup Monday I thought it would be the perfect time to chit chat with you about a few makeup items that I truly feel like they saved me when I was in Italy. While I was there, I didn't wear makeup during the day since most days we were either at the beach or at the pool, but I did wear makeup at night and since it was sooooo hot there, I feel like these products really helped keep my makeup on and stay fresh for hours!
This first item is the primer I used under my foundation and I honestly feel like this stuff was the glue that kept it from melting away, the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer is long lasting, feels smooth on the skin and just makes the overall look of your foundation flawless!!
The magical item that kept my eyeshadow from creasing into an ugly mess is this gem right here, The Sephora 12hr Waterproof Crayon in the color Beige is just amazing!! I love the the soft champagne color and I love the formula so much that I actually decided to pick up a few more of these in different colors. It kept my eyeshadow perfectly put without any issues whatsoever! I love it when a product lives up to it's name! I didn't wear my makeup for 12 hours, at most it was probably 6 hours and it really did look perfect for all 6 hours and remember, it was hot hot hot!
My all time favorite liquid eye liner is the Stila All Day Waterproof Liner, I have a couple of these because I honestly can't live without this liner, it's by far the easiest liner to work with, jet black and stays on until you take it off with some makeup remover. It stayed on all night long without coming off or smudging on the top part of my eye lid (I hope this makes sense) which happens with lots of my liquid liners when I wear them on hot days. I apologize for the picture, it's not the easiest thing to take a picture of ;)
And finally, the thing that kept everything on and looking fresh and not cakey is my favorite makeup setting spray, the Urban Decay All Nighter. I have been using this stuff for so long and I've purchased so many I've lost count, so when I tell you it's good, ya gotta trust me!
So these are the items I feel like I couldn't have lived without while I was on vacation, it kept me from melting like the wicked witch of the west haha :)
