November Beauty Favorites

Hello Loves!
I was going to do a post showing you the inside of my planner but I decided to go ahead and do my November beauty favorites instead. I feel like everyone on YouTube did this post today so it got my mind rolling of what my favorites were this month. On Wednesday check back for my lifestyle/everyday favorites that aren't related to beauty items, things like books, etc. I decided to split them up into two posts so you guys can see a wide variety of my favorites for the month. 

First up: The Sonia Kashuk matte palette. 

I love this palette. I bought it a week or so ago and I have used it everyday since. The white (upper left hand corner) is the perfect brow bone highlight for me and I am about to hit pan on it, already! I use it that much! This palette was 20 dollars at Target and its making me want to go buy its sister palette, the shimmer version. This are great every day shades that make any other palette you own wearable because it can add the matte shades to the look. 

Here are the swatches and after looking at them I am going to have to try that third lightest color as my next brow bone highlight once I am done with the white. These shadows blend easily and make other shadows blend out nicely too. I love it. 

Next: Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette

That color Roulette you guys! Its so incredibly pigmented. Its a beautiful rose gold shade and I have used it on many looks. I actually wore it on thanksgiving and received a lot of compliments. I highly recommend this palette, the colors are in the warm family but I like doing warm looks so they fit me well. 

Another makeup geek product! This is the makeup geek pigment in Afterglow. This is the perfect champagne highlight color that adds a fun glow to any look you put together. I wore this on the center of my eyelid when I was wearing Roulette, it really made the whole look pop. The only downside is this pigment is messy, it gets everywhere, so be prepared. 

Next is the eyeliner I have been wearing, its the maybelline eye studio gel liner. It's really good. This is my first time using a gel liner and its a really forgiving product, meaning if I make a mistake the formula of this product makes it easier to clean up. I am a beginner when it comes to winged liner but I feel with this I can accomplish this look easily. 

I finally found a primer I love. The Baby Skin pore eraser primer from Maybelline. I love it! I have a lot of imperfections on my face but this primer really helps to even out my skin tone. Now it doesn't take those imperfections away but it definitely helps it look flawless. If you are looking for a dupe for the benefit porefessional primer, I heard this one works great for that too. 

For brushes this month I have been loving my new makeup geek brushes. I have the foundation stippling brush (first one pictured) and the face buffer brush (second one pictured). The foundation stippling brush blends out my foundation so smoothly, the bristles are soft and the perfect size. I highly recommend either brush.

Last but not least, I loved my ipsy bag for this month! The bag was silver and sparkly with a pink zipper, right up my alley! If you want to sign up for ipsy go HERE. Its a subscription service where you get makeup samples for $10.00 a month, I have only done it for the last three months but so far I love it. 

What are some of your beauty favorites?
