Ulta highlighter & blush duo (Fresh Glow & Nude Pink)
IT Cosmetics Brow Power pencil (Universal Taupe)
Ulta Nude Matte eye shadow primer
Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box eyeshadow palette
Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette

Urban Decay Vice lipstick (Blackmail)
Ulta Matte lipstick (Petal)

Over the past couple months I’ve fallen in love with Urban Decay Vice lipstick in Blackmail and have made it my signature shade. It seems to go with just about everything I wear, from eye makeup to clothing, and the sharp contrast with my pale complexion is to die for. It looks stunning on literally everyone I’ve seen wearing it and totally recommend this plum-black color/formula to those brave enough to rock such a bold look.
For a more natural lip color, I’ve come to rely on Ulta matte lipstick in Petal, and it’s something more universal than the previous shade. Again, I recommend it to everyone regardless of skin tone and occasion.
As for eyeshadow, I’m addicted to both Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box and Naked 2 palettes. Between both of them I have every color I need to achieve a multitude of looks, from natural to intense smokey effects.
For perfect skin, I use e.l.f. Hydrating Face Primer, Kat Von D Lock-It foundation (42 light neutral), Ulta Full Coverage concealer (light warm), and Ulta Double Duty pressed powder (fair). Though my skin tone is currently too light to do any major contouring, I still use Ulta’s highlighter (Fresh Glow) and blush (Nude Pink) to define my cheekbones and other features. With pale skin, a little goes a long way.
To make it all stick, I prefer to use Urban Decay De-Slick makeup setting spray, but lately I’ve been using NYX Matte Finish setting spray because it’s more affordable.. A makeup addict with an empty wallet isn’t exactly an easy situation to be in!
Is there a beauty item you can’t live without?
