Makeup I Brought With Me to Tahoe (and What I Did and Didn’t end Up Using)

Lake Tahoe with my primary girl!
HELLO from back in the Bay Area! baby Love, El Hub and I got back yesterday afternoon.

Before heading out I indicated to post a list of the products I was bringing with me, but I didn’t have a chance, so here goes now. Tracy, girl! — I know you also asked, so here’s the makeup I brought to Tahoe and also used for the look I’m wearing in the top pic.


Oh, and wouldn’t ya know it? The weather cleared up just as we were getting ready to leave… Don’tcha hate it when that happens?

Here’s what I brought on the trip (the pink bag is the Drawn to Lipstick makeup Bag from connorclaire.com)
Products I brought that I actually used on the trip…

Here are the products I actually ended up using, and I’ve provided them in the buy they were used in the makeup I’m wearing in that photo at the top.

Make Up For ever step 1 Smoothing primer — On my cheeks, nose and around my mouth and chin

Urban Decay naked Skin One & Done hybrid complexion Perfector in medium Dark — applied all over my face to even out my skin tone (you people know how much I love this stuff)

Make Up For ever Ultra HD undetectable Cover Concealer in R40 — I use this orange-toned concealer as a color-corrector to cancel out the purple under my eyes.

NARS Translucent Crystal Light Reflecting setting Powder — I use the tiniest bit to set the corrector.

Make Up For ever Ultra HD undetectable Cover Concealer Y33 — I apply this on top of the corrector as a concealer and to brighten my under-eye area. then I use NARS Translucent Crystal again to set it.

Hourglass Vanish foundation in beige — I apply a tiny bit to my cheeks, nose and around my mouth.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural in medium golden — To set my face makeup

Benefit ready set Brow — applied to bare brows to wrangle them into place and give my brow powder something to hold onto

MAC The Monster’s Bride palette — I only used Brun, which I used to fill in the spare spots in my brows with a stiff, flat eyeshadow brush.

NARS pro Prime Smudge proof Eyeshadow Base — An old fave for priming my lids

MAC pro Longwear waterproof Colour Stick in Lilacked — This wasn’t in the picture I posted of my Tahoe makeup the other day, but OMG! — SO absolutely obsessed WITH THIS.
It occurred to me on this trip that I need to give this the Unsung makeup Heroes treatment ASAP, along with my other favorite colors from the MAC pro Longwear waterproof Colour Stick line.

MAC Nordstrom Naturals palette — using a MAC 217 brush, I mixed Woodwinked and Wedge, and then applied that on top of Lilacked Colour Stick, before applying Carbon with a flat eyeshadow brush along my upper lash line.

Chanel Stylo Yeux waterproof in 929 — the best warm, shimmery brown! The Stylo Yeux pencils are pricey, but they never irritate my eyes and stay put all day long.

Urban Decay Cannonball waterproof Mascara — Holds a curl like WHOA

Hourglass Ambient lighting blush palette — I’m wearing Incandescent Electra blush, which I applied to the apples of my cheeks.

NARS Apoline Lipstick — My neutral pink jam at the moment

Products I brought that I ended up not using…

I’d planned to do some looks with glitter and shiny liquid liner for going out to dinner, but that didn’t happen because of the rain (we didn’t want to deal).

In no particular order…
