Favorite Beauty Product: JULY

Hey loves! So I thought I would start to share some of my favorite beauty products randomly. I definitely blog about certain categories and list my must-haves, but I thought it would be kinda cool, if each month I told you about my favorite beauty item!

Beauty to me is a lot of things, so my favorite product each month could be a foundation, nail polish, hair conditioner, lip balm, sunscreen, body moisturizer . . . It could be anything! It might be something I only use personally, but could also be something I keep in my kit. But I thought why not?! Another way of sharing some awesome tidbits with my followers!

So for month of July I have been LOVING the Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel.

Inglot's description of this product is, "High intensity pigments provide ideal coverage and rich colors after just one application. The creamy and delicate long lasting formula dries to a long-lasting, smudge proof, and crease proof finish."

This is a product that STAYS in my kit for everything! I use it for my brides, editorial work, headshots, body painting and so much more . . . I even have a little trick using this bad-boy for a "no-makeup" makeup look.

But lately I've been using it on myself almost daily. I'm not a makeup artist who wears much makeup . . . Crazy, I know. But my skin is ridiculously sensitive, so I have to be careful. So I've been trying out different ways to look my best without doing a full face. This gel liner is the trick. 

I either do a winged liner look, a medium-sized line or a thin line smudged out . . . And only on the top. Seriously, it like completes my face at this moment in life LOL.

Glitter! Glitter! Glitter!!! ...

Anyone who knows me, knows I love me some glitter. Whether it's glitter lips, glitter on the inner corner of the eye, or glitter as eyeliner ... I make it work!  Often times I incorporate glitter when doing different Indian bridal looks, and typically when this happens the glitter is placed near the eyes. When I do this, it is imperative that I use cosmetic grade glitter.

See, sometimes when I'm working with a performer or doing body paint, I can use glitter from anywhere. I often time grab stacks of glitter from Hobby Lobby or around certain holidays Target or Walmart. But whenever glitter is placed on the face, especially near the eyes, the type of glitter you use matters.

Depending on where it comes from, most glitters are made from plastic or even glass. And when the particles are quite tiny, you don't want them to get in your eye. That's where cosmetic glitter comes from. I typically use glitters from a company called Lit Cosmetics. Their glitter particles are made of rounded plastic, so I don't have to worry about it irritating a clients eye. I personally like to occasionally wear glitter on my lips, and I love that cosmetic glitter doesn't feel so "yucky."

So for those of you who are a bit bolder, or if you just want to add a bit of sparkle to a particular makeup look ... make sure it isn't just your run-of-the-mill glitter from the craft store ;-)
