Currently Loving: Makeup Edition

Currently Loving: Makeup Edition
Hey, friends! The weekend has just flown by again. It’s Art Prize time here in Grand Rapids, if you’re anywhere near us it’s definitely worth checking out (it’s going on until October 9)! I hope you’re off to a productive start to your week.

I haven’t done a favorites post in so long and there are a lot of things that I have been LOVING. So much that I had to split this post into two separate posts! Today I’m sharing all of the makeup I’m loving, and Thursday I will share the skin & hair products. I will link to all of the products so you can check them out for yourself!

Free Resource Library

Also, we are working on a free resources library section of B&B and it will be available soon. Let us know if you have any requests to add to the library and we’ll do our best to add it! It’s basically going to be your personal beauty advisor resource page. The library will include ultimate guides (not just a few tips but EVERYTHING you’ll need to know on a topic), tips & tricks, skincare routines to try, and more.

em Cosmetics Arch Defining Brow Liner

I love this pencil because the shade ash blonde is perfect, the skinny twist up pencils are my fav, and the spooly brush on the opposite end of the pencil is super soft. I like using a skinny pencil because it looks natural and more defined. Not having to sharpen the pencil is another plus. I am a huge fan of em cosmetics. You can shop this brow pencil here.

NYX illuminator

I love using a dab of this on my cheekbones and then layering a powder highlighter over it. That’s just because I am obsessed with highlighters and you really don’t have to layer. It’s beautiful on its own, and so affordable! The shade I have is sunbeam, it’s a cool pinky liquid highlighter and it lasts all day (how can you go wrong?!) You can take a peek at this highlighter here.


It Cosmetics Hero mascara

Okay, I was skeptical when they advertise this mascara to make your lashes look 500% bigger. I mean, come on, 500%? Well, I don’t know where they actually get the 500% but this stuff is AWESOME. It really grabs every.single.lash. The brush is my favorite part, I am very picky when it comes to mascara wands. My all-time, go back to every time, favorite mascara is Urban Decay’s Perversion but this one might take the lead for the new fav. The Super Hero brush is soft and has a lot of bristles at different lengths to grab all your lashes. This mascara also has tons of good ingredients (per usual for It Cosmetics) and has a proprietary elastic stretch technology. Shop Superhero here.

Juice Beauty Satin Lip Cream

You can also read a review on these here, I just included these in my Fall Lip post last week.  This is my favorite lippy by Juice Beauty, the color glides on smoothly with so much pigment.  These lip creams have tons of great ingredients for anti-aging and moisturizing and I love the shiny finish. *Bonus* These have plumping effect with vegetable hyaluronic acid.

Anastasia Clear Brow Gel

I always thought a clear brow gel, something so simple, would be the same no matter what the brand. Let me tell you, I was so wrong! I have used umpteen million brands of cheap brow gels and none can even light a candle to this one! If you want something to hold your brows ALL DAY, this is your new BFF. I like using this alone and on top of my pencil. Shop this brow gel here, it’s $22 and worth every penny.


Thanks for reading today, I hope you found something that interests you to try. Make sure you come back Thursday for the skin &  hair edition. Let me know if you have any questions or need any more recommendations!

I’d love to hear what you’re loving at the moment! Share your favorites in the comment section!


Xx, T

  1. Just realized that I received a sample of the it superhero mascara in my ipsy bag this month and I love it. I too have been struggling to find the right mascara, they have either not been thick enough or the wand had been horrible. Everyone should try it superhero, the wand is perfect and it does a beautiful job of thickening my lashes.
