What's In My Makeup Bag?!
Here are some of Lash and Beauty Lab's makeup must-haves...
Stila Kitten Allover Shimmer
This is one of my most favorites!! I bought it before the dewy look was in and even now with all the highlighting products out on the market, it the best I’ve found! Its two toned so its a perfect for all skin tones and has a perfect consistency. I find some powdered highlighters can be a bit dry for my skin but this one has a soft, velvety feel. Its also has multiple uses, its perfect for highlighting, eyeshadow or just a bit of shimmer for a finished look.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longer Foundation
I was a bit of a skeptic when Rihanna first introduced Fenty Beauty. I don’t think I wanted to like it because of all the hype surrounding it but I’m gonna have to agree with everyone on this one, the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longer Foundation is simply amazing. This foundation comes in 40 shades for all types of skin tones, its sweat resistance and has a soft matte finish. It's water-based which allows your skin to breath but it has a medium to full coverage depending on how much you build.
kELLLEY bAKER'S Highlighter Pencil
This cream pencil highlighter for your brow bone is a game changer. This product highlights the brow bone in a subtle way which lifts and defines the brow and brightens the eyes. You apply this cream pencil right under your brow line, then use the flat brush to sway back and forth, smudging and smoothing the product out, giving you a crips and finished look. This simple product gives your set of brows that celebrity factor.

Urban Decay Naked3 Pallet
Rose gold is the hot color right now making this eyeshadow pallet a must. Urban Decay is known for their high pigmented eyeshadows and their #3 is Lash & Beauty Lab’s favorite! From pale, shimmery pinks and bronzes to deep black matte with micro-glitter, these colors are perfect for all skin tones and compliments any set of eyelash extension.
Xtreme Lash Liquid Eyeliner
This is a new product by Xtreme and we have all fallen in love. This product is a double-sided, felt tip liquid eyeliner enriched with a lash-nourishing peptide. There’s an easy to control precision tip for filling in gaps along the lash line or for a thin liner look and theres a thick slated tip for creating a more dramatic look. This eyeliner stays on and doesn’t smudge until you take it off and its specifically formulated for eyelash extensions!

PCA’s Sheer Tint SPF
This tinted SPF is a product that just keeps on giving. PCA is Lash and Beauty Lab’s favorite skincare line and they have created this Sheer Tint SPF that’s formatted to improve the heath and appearance of your unique skin. It literally fixes your skin while protecting it and making it look polished! You can use this with your foundation, as a primer and it's perfect by itself for a soft day look. If you haven’t tried a tinted SPF, this Summer is the time to try it out.

Tarte's Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer
The world of bronzers can be overwhelming! There’s matte ones, glittery ones, creams and powdered but this one takes the cake. I have personally found that I like matte bronzers. There are so many products that have glitter added in to them so when I’m contouring I prefer a matte finish so I can then go in with highlighters to add shimmer where I want. This bronzer is waterproof so it lasts all day and there are several colors to compliment your skin tone. Plus Tarte is known for its lack of chemicals and parabens so if you prefer the natural route, try out this bronzer!
Xtreme Length & Volume Mascara
Eyelash extensions create a look that makes mascara unnecessary but for nights when I'm feeling extra saucy, I go for this mascara. This product is great for more drama for an evening out or to spruce your lashes the week before your next fill. Xtreme Length & Volume Mascara is specifically formulated to enhance and protect eyelash extensions! The brush on this mascara is lush perfect for coating your lashes with product without giving you clumpy lashes and ensuring your extensions are protected at the same time. At Lash and Beauty Lab we carry this mascara for our clients with lash extensions but its also carried at Nordstrom due to it’s popularity!

MAC Powder Blush
MAC is a household name and they have a lot of great products but I refuse to buy blush anywhere else. They have over 40 shades so you’re able to find your desired color. I have two, one for the pale months and one for the precious sunny months in Portland. MAC powder blush has a perfect consistency that is buildable and comes in several finishes like matte, satin or shimmer. Plus this is one of the only blushes I’ve found that stays in place all day!
