This 32-page magazine is a guide to my all-time favorite beauty products.


 If you have followed me since the beginning, then you’ll know partnering with Too Faced is a dream come true! I have always admired the creativity behind the brand and the quality of the products, and today I am thrilled to share three of my favorites with you.

The Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper* is a staple in my makeup collection, so I am grateful to have a backup. The tingly formula reduces the appearance of fine lines for a fuller pout. I love using it at the beginning of my makeup routine to prep my lips for other products or after adding liner and lipstick for a high-shine finish. I have very pigmented lips, so I find that this does make them a little more pink than I would like, but other than that, it is lovely.

The Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara* is the first and only high-end mascara I have ever invested in because the results are like no other. This makes my lashes long, dark, and, of course, voluminous. It doesn’t smudge, and one tube lasts forever. Pro tip: I have always preferred the mini version because it is slightly less clumpy.

The Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette* is literally the most me palette ever, and I can’t believe I’ve never tried it before! The warm, neutral, and cool shades complement every skin tone, and I love that there are mauves and plums as well as the more standard bronzes and browns. In addition to the stunning shade range, I also adore the formula. The mattes are blendable, and the shimmers are so creamy. I reach for this palette for the majority of my work looks, often using the darker colors in place of eyeliner. It truly has everything I need. If you purchase one product from today’s post, let it be this one.
