Blog Series: In my makeup bag
Today Anna from A Newfound Treasure is sharing her favorite makeup products with us. Anna is one of my favorite bloggy friends and she has a great Etsy store, so make sure to check out her blog and shop!
What's your current makeup bag?
I adore my Hervé Chapelier bag. It sat in my closet for years because, let's face it, who carries around a purse that small?! It is the perfect size for a cosmetic bag, and I love the handles / nylon fabric. It's made so well... I feel like it may just last forever.
Is there anything you're coveting right now?
I want and NEED Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer. It's the perfect coverage for the warmer months ahead!
Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share?
I use the Rénergie Anti-Aging Cream everyday. That's right, I'm taking measures into my own hands. After all, you're never too young to start caring about your aging skin. It's inevitable, and I've seen a huge difference in my skin over the past 2 years. Pores, wrinkles, discoloration... what happened to my beautiful, flawless, youthful skin? I'm fighting back.
Any particular makeup trend that you're looking forward for spring?
I am so excited to try out new matte lipsticks. For years, I only wore chapstick, but now understand how "unfinished" my face looked. From bold reds to pale pinks, I always finish off my face with a little "lip love."
How does your day makeup routine differs from your night time one?
During the day, I tend to keep things fairly simple. Mascara, bronzer, cheek tint and lip gloss are just what I need to get me through the day. Nighttime makeup usually involves eyeshadow, more eyeliner and daring lip colors.
