After every boudoir session, I ask my clients what their favorite part of the sexy shoot was, and most often, ladies say getting hair and makeup ready was their favorite part of a boudoir experience. I can completely get on board with that, because most days I slap on a little tinted moisturizer, mascara, and Burts Bees, so to get all done up is a real treat. A lot of clients even say “I wish you could come to my house and do my makeup everyday”, to which we all laugh, because no one needs all that glam for everyday. But, there are certain products that you could invest in to have at home to make your skin care, makeup routine and glam feel more luxurious and high end. So, I recently asked my #614stylesquad for their faves as far as beauty products go, and why. Here is what miss Halli from Columbus Bridal Makeup had to say:
MAC Active Softening Lotion
It's a moisturizing lotion that removes dead skin and turns the skin into a sponge for serums and moisturizers.
Kevin A Coin Celestial Skin
It's like glow in a tube! It creates a beautiful glow from within.
Chanel Bronze Soleil
Perfect shade of warmth for many skin tones.
Nars eyeshadow Primer
It's bullet proof even for the oiliest eyelids.
Skin Up device and serums
It's magic for the skin. It repairs damage and gives a healthy glow.
They are 50% pigment and look just like skin when used correctly.
MAC Extended Play mascara
The tubing formula never flakes and it's like a push up bra for your lashes!
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural
It's like an Instagram filter for your face that can be used wet or dry. I like using 3-4 shades to bring dimension into the skin.
Cover FX Illuminating setting powder
It's not totally matte but it set's foundation in a beautifully natural way.
Wet n Wild matte lipstick
They are crazy affordable and the shades are well calibrated. The formula stays on very well.
