april makeup love list

I have been wearing and experimenting with make-up since the fifth grade. It used to be something I used to hide teenage blemishes, but it has become so much more than that. I love what make-up can do for a woman. For many of us it gives us the confidence to be who we want to be. That being said no girl wants to look like they have a layer of make-up on their skin. Make-up is about enhancing what is already there.
I started selling Mark about a year ago. Due to a slight magazine obsession I would constantly see Mark products being featured in Allure, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Lucky, and more. Once I saw the price I was immediately sold. I don't use Mark for everything but I could not live without many of my Mark products now. I get asked a lot what products I use or what my make-up routine is, so here it is! 

I never used primer before I sold Mark and now it is a staple in my routine. It fills in fine lines and smooths skin, giving a airbrushed look. AMAZING!
I love this foundation! It covers blemishes, heals them, blends perfectly with my skin, and is super lightweight. Couldn't ask for more in a foundation.
Another product I never tried till I sold Mark. I was always intimated by creme blush but I will never go back to powder. This is so natural looking, and blends amazing.
I use this as a finisher after I use my blush tint. Sets my look and takes away any shine. Very lightweight.
I love eye primer! Keeps my shadow in place all day long. And the travel size will last you a long time.
I love nude shadows and when I saw Jessica Biel sporting this pallete on the red carpet I had to buy it. I love mixing the colors around, and they blend perfectly with each other. Doesn't give me the creases that most creme shadows do. 

This eyeliner is the best I have ever used. It is encased in plastic that you sharpen off, keeping it incredibly soft and smooth. I put it on once and it does not budge all day! I like to line my lid with Jet set, and use White On near my tear ducts and just a bit under my water line.
I am a self proclaimed mascara junkie. I love this mascara because it gives my lashes a feathery look, not a tarantula one. 
TIP: Always apply to bottom lashes first then top. And curl before applying mascara.

If you would like to order any of the Mark products listed above feel free to shop my Mark store. If you have not placed an order with me before use the promo code WELCOME at checkout to get free shipping.
