or let your makeup help. Lorac’s Light Source 3 in 1 Illuminating Primer will bring life and luminosity to your face. I use the Dusk version. It is a high pearl primer with light diffusing properties. It gives a soft focus smooth glow. You can use it as a primer under makeup, mix with your foundation, or add touches on top for hightlight. So give life to your face with Lorac, even if your hangover’s making you feel like death….

mineral sunscreen powder. Nourisee skincare has created the best version with 90% active sunscreens. I had not tried a powdered sunscreen before so I wasn’t expecting much. I was amazed with the coverage and look of this product. It is as much a great foundation as it is sunblock. It is waterproof, with an spf of 50+. This long lasting, high coverage sunscreen gives you complete protection, with a flawless look, all without chemicals. With every shade offered they also send both a lightening and darkening powder to adjust the color to your perfect match. So get out there for some fun in the sun with Nourisse, but always use protection ;)…..

your makeup will last. Thanks to Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray. There’s a reason this product is the industry’s #1 setting spray. I live in Miami, and our humidity definitely puts your face to the test. This weightless spray keeps your makeup looking like it did when you left the house. It works by lowering the temperature of your makeup to lock it in place. My trick for a super important or sweaty night is to spray it on after foundation and setting powder, then again when you finish your full face.. It is suitable for all skin types. So lock in your look with Urban Decay, and stay out all night..

and I’m so into it. I have a new lip obsession. It’s Lime Crime’s Red Velvet from their Matte Velvetines Collection. I spent months searching out the perfect red, and I believe I found it. It’s a liquid lipstick that dries Matte. It lasts longer than any lipstick I’ve ever used. I put it through the test with kissing, drinking, and eating. Next I need to get my hands on their Wet Cherry Gloss. So let your lips scream kiss me in a perfect red, and commit to a crime…

right after I apply my favorite foundation. Lately I’ve been going back and forth between two liquid foundations that I love. The reason they have become my favorites is because they are lightweight, long-lasting, matte, full coverage, and easily blended. The brands are Fenty’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation and Huda Beauty’s FauxFilter Foundation. The Fenty comes in 40 shades and is made with climate adaptive technology to resist sweat and humidity. It does not clog pores and is oil free. Huda Beauty’s velvety coverage comes in 30 shades. It dries to a matte powder while leaving you with a luminous finish. It is enriched with Argan Oil and Centella Asiatica to hydrate. So get with one of these luxury foundations, and give the instagram filters a break…

even though they look fake. My lashes of course! Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara lives up to the hype. I love both the formula and the wand in this product. The mascara coats easily and smoothly. I only need one coat for major definition, lift, and length. The wand curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates. It does not smudge or dry out. I’ve seen this on must have lists for years, and now I know why. If you want a prestigious mascara for your arsenal I highly recommend this one. So get real lashes with Benefit, and get rid of the fakes…

but I won’t skimp on quality. I am pleasantly surprised with the products I bought from shopmissa.com. Everything on this site is $1! They have their own line, AOA, and they carry other brands like ELF and L.A. Colors. They keep prices down by working directly with the manufacturer. So whether you’re looking for an alternative to your expensive buys or just want to play around with some different products, this is the spot. My favorite things I bought are the eyebrow pencil and Eyebrow Gel.
AOA-3004-MAIN_medium
The AOA Sculpting Brow Pencil is a triangular-tipped, retractable pencil to shape and fill in brows. It’s easy to use and gives a bold yet natural look. It has a spooley at the end to blend. The AOA Go Brow Mascara is said to rival boy brow. I have no need to ever spend more than a $1 on brow gel.

The F9 Contour brush is amazing for blending bronzers and highlighters. Works on both creams and powders.
AOA-3029-3_medium
Lastly the AOA FX contour sticks are easy to use and extremely blendable. I can’t wait to try more products from this line. So get with Miss A and be cheap, but quality…
