Beauty & Makeup Favorites To Try This Year

BEAUTY & MAKEUP favorites to try in 2021

In the last two years, I’ve made a concerted effort to learn more about skincare. Specifically to learn more about what works for WOC and this came on the heels of me learning more about how to apply Makeup. Now I consider myself a novice and an enthusiast at best for both categories but unlike most, I’d say I wore more makeup in 2021 than most because of what I do. I’m still very much learning and having fun with makeup and skincare but here are a few of my favorites to try in 2021.


The older I get the more I've started to care about my skin, smile lines and wrinkles will do that to ya. I have a confession I totally neglected my skin in my 20’s so I’m trying to make up for it. There are three essential items I use daily the first being Sunscreen { + A moisturizer love this one}, second an Eye Cream, last being an Acne Treatment. 

In addition to that, I like to use products to help brighten my skin and improve my hyperpigmentation my go-to ingredient of choice for that is vitamin C so a serum or infused product is a must-have. With it being winter Lip care is important to me one thing I cannot stand is dry lips and this product has been holding me down going on two years now #thegoat. When I want a real deep clean / pamper I also incorporate an exfoliator and a pore cleansing mask.


When It comes to beauty my I'm all about glowy youthful skin. My everyday look involves a cat eye and a bold or nude lip. It took me years of searching to find the perfect nude for me which is more of a peachy tone.

This lip cream with chestnut lip liner is the goat for me. When I'm going for sheer lip Taupe Lustre is the perfect gloss. Now when I want to go darker I love this Lipstick. However my best discovery in the Lip Color department is this Lip Pigment! Y’all it stays put under your mask it's easy to apply super weightless really pigmented like I'm obsessed.


I'm glad I finally live in a world where when I want foundation I can actually find colors in my range that are readily available. My go-to is the Nars Radiant Foundation; this foundation is lightweight and wears well all day long my shade is Iguagu it's the closest to the color around the perimeter of my face and I typically lighten it up with concealer around my T zone to match.

Right now, however, I am testing out the Shiseido Synchro Skin foundation. Love how weightless the Nars Radiant Foundation is, however, the Synchro Skin foundation is chock-full of additional benefits like SPF 30, it is infused with Vitamin C, provides 24 hr hydration, and has light adjusting technology that blurs fine lines and wrinkles. It's the perfect foundation in my opinion if you have a combination to dry skin. I currently mix shade 530 for the center of my face and 550 for the periphery.


If it ain't broke I don’t fix it so here are a few makeup favorites that I continue to reach for. Let's start with the Sleek Contour Palette {the highlight color is bomb it's also affordable} Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark, Mac Razin Blush, Stila Eyeliner, and the All Nighter Setting Spray just to name a few.
