I’m into more of a natural look when it comes to makeup. For day to day, I don’t have more than 5 or ten minutes in the morning to get ready for work. Contouring and strobing are definitely fun, and the looks you find on Instagram and Pinterest photograph really well, but I find that for me it just looks way overdone IRL.
Even Kim Kardashian, the queen of contouring, has said she was moving towards a “nontour” trend. She has been wearing less makeup and a light highlight. Which I totally get now that she is a mom of two. Sometimes heavy makeup makes women look older. And the best base for a good makeup routine is a good skincare routine. So if you have any skin concerns, you want to address those concerns too and not just cover it up with makeup!
Let’s talk about my latest multitasking product find. Makeup Revolution’s Shimmer Brick. For less than $5 online (seriously) you can get this shimmer brick in Rose Gold or Radiant. I would recommend Radiant for more the medium to darker skinned Mami’s and Rose Gold for the light to medium skinned Mami’s.
What I love about this shimmer brick is that it’s a bronzer and highlighter in one. You can mix colors together or use them one by one. Makeup Revolution’s Shimmer Brick is super pigmented so it will last you forever and you can take a light hand for every day or strobe to your heart’s content! This will definitely be in my makeup must-haves basket. (Yup, still moving. Nope…not closed on the house yet. So annoying!!)
This is my first time trying Makeup Revolution and I’m super impressed. The quality is amazing and the price is definitely great for my pocket book! As a makeup junkie, I still need to be able to afford to pay my mortgage and daycare.
Some Ulta stores have started to sell Makeup Revolution. And they usually have a BOGO half off deal! So if you live close by to an Ulta, definitely stop by to check it out!
