Who doesn’t love to look fabulous everyday and especially for portraits?! Listed below is a list of products I love and swear by!
If you have any makeup questions you can message me:
Facebook: Kickin’ It With Kära
I have 4-5 of their pallets are hardly ever pick up any of my other name brand pallets. Most of their pallets have 35 eyeshadows in them and range from $23-35 depending on the pallet. Their pallets are super smooth and buttery and blend like magic! Ulta carries most of the pallets. Morphe.com has all of their pallets.
NYX Eyeshadow Base
This has brightened my eyeshadows so much and makes my eyeshadow last without being sticky! And the product last FOREVER. I’ve had the same container for almost 6 months and its a little under half way used. This is with me wearing it almost everyday, using it to go live on Facebook, and doing client’s makeup. Def worth it! Can you purchased at Target or Ulta.
Milani 2 in 1 - yellow undertones - full coverage
Wet N Wild Photofocus - yellow and pink undertones - medium coverage, buildable
Revlon Colorstay - pink undertones - medium coverage, buildable
All of these I’ve used personally and love them. They can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens, Ulta, etc. My magic combination that I wear everyday is the Milani and Wet N Wild.
Milani Retouch and Erase - full coverage
Maybelline Fit me - medium coverage
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser
The Milani is my absolute go to but I also like very full coverage as I have large pores. I’ve personally used all of these and love them. These products can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens, Ulta, Etc.
Milani Powder Blush (Rose Shape)
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer (has a coconut scent)
Lorac Contour Pallet
The Butter Brozer has been a game changer for me; its just enough color without making me look orange. The blush and butter bronzer can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens, Ulta, Etc. Lorac Contour Pallet can be purchased at Ulta and Sephora.
Monistat Chaffing Gel (no this is not the stuff that goes in your lady parts)
Nivea Men’s Aftershave
Yes I said Monistat, no it’s not the yeast infection medicine. Its a gel to aviod chaffing, thick thigh ladies where ya at, you know what I’m talking about! lol The Monistat has the same key ingredients as Smash Box’s primer without spending a lot of money. The aftershave is one I used for a couple of years and occasionally still do if I run out of Monistat. Something about the aftershave makes your makeup stay on and keeps it looking flawless, plus it smells REALLY good! Porefessional was my go to when I was rich,. Jk I was never rich, but I found cheaper alternatives that work just as well! Monistat and Nivea can be purchased at Walmart, Porefessional can be purchased at Ulta.
Maybelline Stiletto liquid liner
Maybelline Studio Master liquid liner
Wet N Wild Color Icon Kohl Liner
These are all liners I’ve used for years. They’re all very cheap and work really well! The Stiletto is so easy to use to get a nice pretty wing!
Milani Make It Last
Flower Beauty Seal The Deal
NYX Professional Matte Finish
Urban Decay All Nighter
All of these setting sprays I highly recommend. The first two can be purchased almost anywhere, the last two can be purchased at Ulta. To me they all work the same, it just depends on how much money you’re wanting to spend. The Flower Beauty has lasted the longest for me.
Coty Airspun Translucent Powder
This is the ONLY powder I will use. I’ve never had an issue with flashback or looking cakey when I bake. It last me forever and is super cheap!
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise
This is the only mascara that I’ve consistently used. I used to jump around from mascara to mascara but once I started using the Lash Paradise I haven’t switched.
False Lashes and Glue:
Ardel Lashes - I haven’t used a pair I didn’t like
Kiss Lashes - Flirty Natural
Ardel Lash Glue
I’ve used other glues and I HATED them. Adrel glue has been the only one to not let me down. Lashes can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens, Target, Sallys, and Ulta.
NYX Liquid Lingerie
Wet N Wild Mega Last Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick
Liquid Lingerie is my absolute go to. It last through everything I’m doing, eating, drinking, everything! NYX can be purchased at Target and Ulta, Wet N Wild can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens, Target, ETC.
