January 2016 Favorites

Brand New Year, and the month of January flew by with a blink of an eye. I have a new set-up I am experimenting with for my photography so hopefully you all like it. My hubby took a saw and shortened his work desk, and then coincidentally, it just fit into a nook in my condo, so we went to Ikea bought some legs and attached it to the extra piece and built ourselves a new side table. I now use it for my laptop and purely for my blogging. My vanity is still what I use to store all of my makeup, and where I sit to play with it and of course, apply it on most mornings (that's unchanged). 

Anyways - onto my list of make-up and skincare favorites for the month of January. There are some repeats (yes, because that just proves how much I love it) and there are also some new items that I was just recently introduced to in the last month or two or even as short as just a week or so ago?? 

Products listed above include:
- Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder (medium)
- Too Faced - Hangover RX Face Primer
- Make Up Forever - Ultra HD Concealer* (Y31)
- Anastasia Beverly Hills- Brow Pomade (Chocolate)
- Estee Lauder - Little Black Primer*
- Maybelline - Color Tattoo Crayon (Lilac Lust)
- Soap & Glory - Kick Ass powder
- L'oreal - Color Riche Mono Shadows
- Hour Glass - Ambient Blush (Radiant Magenta)
- Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Concealer (Neutralizer)
- Dior - Air Flash Foundation (300)
- Schaf - Nutritive Daily Eye Cream*
- For Beloved One - Hyaluronic Acid Tri-Molecules GHK-CU Moisturizing Serum*
- Real Colors - Stay and Spray Make Up Setting Spray

I decided to actually do something different and include some of my go-to favorite make-up brushes this month!

1. Morphe M173 (perfect for concealer - it makes it look airbrushed, no creasing!)
2. Morphe S27 - I use this to blend out the crease color
3. Morphe M176 - This is used to pack on color to the lid. It picks up products/pigments nicely and distributes it evenly
4. Luxie Brush - Large Angled Brush - great for blush. It picks up the right amount and adds a sheer wash, doesn't over-do it and will not give you clown face.
5. Hakuhodo - I wish I had a name for this brush, it was part of a limited edition set I got in Tokyo many years ago, its a fluffy powder brush (there are similar ones from Hakuhodo right now). I use this to apply powder foundation and setting powder. It's so soft it feels weightless.
