My favorite Face & Eyeshadow Primer

Hello, darlings!

As I was doing my makeup yesterday..I had a moment of "I love how this primer feels!" which inspired me for this blog post! Today, I'll be going over my favorite face & eyeshadow primer! How much they are & where you can find them! After countless trial & errors of trying out so many different products, I've personally found the two I love!

Not only do I use it on myself, but I use them on my clients as well...& they seem to love how it feels, too!  :)

Let's get started shall we?

Face Primer

Lancome La Base Pro 
'Perfecting Makeup Primer Soothing Effect - Oil Free'

If you're a client or friend of mine you know this is my go-to primer for the face! This primer glides on sooo smoothly over the face without leaving you with that greasy aftermath! A little goes a long way too, so there is no need to smother your face with it. I love how it instantly leaves your skin looking and feeling so smooth. It also helps to reduce any fine lines - umm yes please! It's actually Lancomes #1 primer...ya don't say! :)  Once applied on the face, it leaves the perfect canvas to start you makeup & keeps it on point for hours! This primer also works great with all skin tones~ You guys have to try it, they also offer travel sizes - a great way to try it out before buying the full size!

How much is it?
This primer has always lasted me a couple of months, so for me, it's worth the splurge~

Where can you find it?
If you're from the RGV you can find this at Dillards, Sephora, Macys, and ULTA. If you don't have these stores near you, online is the best option: Lancome-USA.com or Sephora & Ulta websites. 

Eye Primer

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Anti Aging 

I've always been a huge fan* of Urban Decay primers! When I found out they now have an anti aging product with the new brush applicator - I needed it. ( Never a need, always a want, but you know what I mean lol ) 

This 24 hour wear primer is the perfect way to not only intensify eye shadows, but also prevents creasing! No one likes a creased eye shadow look! Some eyeshadow primers I have used in the past have left a very dry feel on my lids, which led to blending not being the easiest task. This primer on the other hand, leaves a very smooth finish that allows shadows to glide on easily! 

How much is it?
0.16 oz $13
0.33 oz $24

Where can you find it?

Sephora, ULTA, Urban Decay.com

How To Keep Your Lip Glosses Organized

Hello, lovelies! Today is about organization! Keeping our home & especially my office clean and organized gives me life! I love knowing where things are, I love everything having its own home, and I love to be able to see everything.

Being a Makeup Artist & Blogger, I tend to have TONS of beauty products! I try to keep everything as organized as possible, but I'm human, and things can get a bit out of control. 

One thing that was definitely getting out of control were my lip glosses. I have an embarrassing, yet beautiful collection of lip glosses! ha! I keep most of my lip glosses in my clear cube & then I have some in my desk drawers....but there's always those few that I grab on the daily basis & use during makeup appointments. I wanted something I can keep on my desk for easy access to ones I usually grab first. At the magical Marshalls, yes, Marshalls is magical! I found the perfect lip gloss holder, for only $2.99 might I add~ 

This glass jar is perfect. It fits a good amount of products & makes everything look so organized & clean! 

I like to keep my glosses facing down, that way I can see the colors easily! 

It now has its very own home on my desk. No more pulling out my drawers searching for my go to glosses/lip stick pencils & no more stuffing them into my clear cube. You can easily pick up a few of these to store more, but one was perfect for me since I knew I wanted it to hold just a few products. I try to keep my desk simple & organized (thank goodness for the clear cube - that baby holds the majority of my products) 

Look how neat & organized it looks~ Ah, pure joy! 

 How do you guys keep some of your go to products organized? I would loveee to see! Post them in a comment down below if you like.

Thanks for reading, everyone! I hope this post inspired you in some way on how to keep some of your beauty products organized & neat! I'll see you in my next blog post!
