Friday Favorites - Current Makeup Favorites

Hooray for Friday!  Two weeks from now, Phillip and I will be in Rhode Island for the Christmas holiday.  And one week from now I will be on winter break for two weeks!  Sigh, I cannot wait.  Who's ready for Christmas??? 

This week's Friday Favorites is dedicated to my current makeup favorites.  I tend go for deeper colors in the fall and winter, especially with lip color.  Summer is for glosses and light shine. Winter is for reds and richer colors.  Here are my favorites in rotation right now.

I am still LOVING my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Palette.  Great color options and they blend incredibly well.  It's fun to experiment with different color combinations.  I of course have my favorite colors in the palette - milk chocolate, white chocolate, triple fudge, and salted caramel tend to be in rotation the most.

I love a good mascara.  I probably have 6 or 7 different varieties in my makeup drawer right now.  I reach for the Lancome Definicils the most.  I have skimpy lashes (the latisse helps though!) so the cils booster goes on first and gives me an added boost.

I have skimpy lashes andskimpy brows, so I use a pencil or this - my new favorite!  Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow.  It's a little like a gel eye liner.  You use an angled brush to put it on.  I love it.

Oh man do I love this lipstick.  It's the Kat Von D Everlasting Lipstick in Lolita.  So flattering.  It goes on shiny and dries matte.  The color lasts and lasts.  It's a lovely brownish/rose color.

I'm wearing the lipstick in this pic from earlier in the week.  Great color, right?  I love how it pops. 

My hands down favorite concealer is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Complete Coverage Concealer.  It's not heavy at all and provides great coverage.  I don't like makeup that feels like it's just sitting on my face and this one is light and comfortable to wear.

I'm sure many of you have heard of or even use this cult favorite - Nars Blush in Orgasm.  It provides the best flush to your cheeks.  Pinky/peachy perfection is what it is. 

Like lipstick, I tend to go for richer, deeper, colors for nail polish in the fall and winter months.  Essie is my favorite polish brand.  I find the manicure lasts the longest.  Left to right - Twin Sweater Set, Licorice, With the Band.  Licorice is a true black and I love to wear it on my toes.  I'm due for a pedicure and I always bring my own polish.  I'm thinking this go-round might be a Licorice one.

My manicure routine: file first, one layer of base coat, two layers of polish, one layer of top coat.  Wait two minutes between each coat.  My manicures usually last a week that way.

Those are my current makeup favorites.  What are you all liking right now? 

Have a great weekend y'all and I'll see you back here next week!
