Ok so I’m going to be completely honest and just say I’m not someone who is huge in sharing what makeup products I use. Not because I don’t like it… just because I’m not a beauty blogger .But Amanda, Malory and all of my glammies are self-described as makeup obsessed. And people always want to know what makeup we are using and the products that are our absolute favorite I can’t tell you how many times I get a text message from one of them raving about the palettes that they just bought. Or mascara that you just have to try! But I wanted to talk about all of that today because people are very curious as to what brands and products we use for weddings and just every day for ourselves.
One of my absolute favorite brands and definitely the glammies favorite is color pop. They have absolutely everything and at such an amazing price. What a lot of people don’t know is that the glammies actually get to pick the makeup that goes into their kits. We of course do kit checks here and there to make sure they have all of the things that they need, but ultimately they choose their own products, and the ones they like to use! So each makeup kit is uniquely designed specifically and by each one of us!
But color pop seems to be what all of us have been sticking in our kits lately because the colors have such great pigmentation and long wear! The matte lip is really popular and I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret…you know those Kylie Jenner lipkits? Well colour pop uses the same formula that Kylie does, but it’s just one that is a little different! I’ve heard from a lot of people that those glosses and lipsticks leave your lips very dry but the coulor pop ones don’t which is something that I am absolutely obsessed with because when in doubt I love to lipstick or gloss it out. You’ll never find me without some sort of lip product because it is my absolute favorite.
But of course when one of us gets a product that we are in love with we HAVE to tell one another and that wad definitely the case when it came to Urban Decay’s Alice Through the Looking Palette. The colors are so beautiful and vibrant with deep purples and magenta colors its just a fun pallet and it looks gorgeous on the outside too!
When it comes to eyeliner I ALWAYS without a doubt use a gel one. I’ve had so many people tell me that they are afraid to use that type of eyeliner but I have always found so much more precision in using gel and an angled brush than using a pencil or liquid! Here’s a pro tip, to make your eyes really pop avoid using eyeliner on you bottom water line!
But my favorite palette hands down has to be Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky palette. Not only are the colors amazing but the outside design is marbled which makes for such a sleek look! It’s so important to have a good neutrals palate because more often than not those are the colors we lean towards for brides consist of lighter and darker browns. And more often than not that’s what I use on my eyes! The colors are so easy to work with and to blend and you can never go wrong with a smoky eye.
