Blog Series: In my makeup bag

Sharing her favorite makeup products today is Leah from Freutcake. Leah and I were introduced by Jess of Forgiving Martha and I’m very grateful we got the chance to connect with each other, she’s the best! I could give you tons of reasons to follow Leah, but if you just want one this should do. After reading that I liked her even more 😉

What’s your current makeup bag?
Sephora Midnight Train Case, but it’s so big that I want a smaller one…that Kate Spade one is on my wishlist.

Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share?
Less is more. Focus on one area you wish to emphasis such as your eyes or your lips. When wearing a red lip, try a more natural shadow and maybe a simple liquid liner. If you decide to wear a smoky or dramatic eye, stick to neutral soft lip.

Is there any makeup trend you’re looking forward for Spring/Summer?
Spring is all about rosy cheeks and peachy pink lips. I love this fresh trend!

How does your daytime makeup routine differs from your night time one?
In the daytime I start with a light oil free moisturizer, light foundation or powder, rosy cheeks and mascara. At nighttime I always step it up. I love wearing a dramatic smoky eye or a set of false lashes. Low lighting lends itself well to dramatic eyes!
