Make Up Treasures Discovered in Hollywood

makeupI am the first to admit I have a lot to learn when it comes to applying make up. Seriously, every time I am able to draw a straight line with liquid eyeliner I consider it a victory. When I have the chance to get my make up done by a professional I pay close attention to the brands they use, their application techniques and ask a ton of questions. (I’m sure they love that)

While I was in LA earlier this year for our Homes for Dogs project and the Academy Awards I was thrilled and spoiled to have my hair and make up done by Felicia,

felishaFelicia told us about a few of her favorite products that are truly gold. The four that stood out included:

beautyBeautyBlender® Make Up Sponge: Really Lindsay, a sponge? That’s supposed to impress us? YES! This sponge is a make up game changer. It’s so much better than the awful white triangle sponges I have been using my whole life. It’s soft and the egg shape makes it much easier to use. My foundation goes on so much more smoothly and takes much less time to blend. A few drops of water and the sponge puffs up and is ready to go. After reading about it on Sephora I learned the water allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. I totally understand why this little miracle sponge is a five-time Allure Best of Beauty Award-winner. I bought mine on Amazon for $18.

KSKate Somerville Exfoliating Scrub: A 2 oz tube comes with an $85 price tag but believe me it’s called Hollywood’s 2 minute facial for a reason. This scrub leaves your skin amazingly smooth and is one of those go ahead and treat yourself products that is worth the price. You can get it here.

lipRevlon Colorstay™ Ultimate Liquid Lipstick: It’s pretty rare to find a lipstick that truly has the power to look as good as it did at the beginning of the night as it does at the end but Felisha wowed us with this lipstick. Not only did it last the entire night of the award show, the after party and our trip at 2 in the morning to Good Morning America but the color was STILL on even after we landed from our flight back to NJ the following morning. (We pulled an all-nighter) Yes, a 24 hour lip stain exists and this is it. Buy it here.

MIAB-Makeup-Spray-86x300Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray: The last product that I learned about was this amazing setting spray. As I said I am by no means a make up maven so I didn’t even realize this product existed. From holding my phone against my cheek while I talk or just rubbing my eyes, I am constantly touching my face which means I often end up with smudged make up.  This light mist made such difference and like Revlon’s lipstick, made our makeup stay perfect well into the night.

Hope you enjoy these products as much as I do. Have a beautiful day!
