Makeup Monday - Makeup Hoarders Unite!

Hi, My name is Jenna. And I'm a makeup hoarder.
Admitting is the first step to recovery, right? 
(Although I don't fully intend on recovering from my addiction just yet).

To further my obsession...
Today is the beginning of a new series called:
I'll be featuring YOU and your must-have products! 
Cause who doesn't love to talk about their favorite products, their current obsessions, etc?!
(if you want to be featured, email me at

First up...we have my cute, amazing, GORGEOUS real-life friend Steph! You will LOVE her sense of style, and want to copy everything she does, and go and BUY everything she talks about
--I know I do! She is like a real-life fashionista. I just love her!

Hey there! My name is Stephanie and I write the beauty/style blog Bloom in Saturation. I am dying to share not only my current favorite cosmetic items but also my favorite cosmetic trend! Whenever I'm drawn to a different makeup trend I naturally switch up what my favorite products are.

There are so many options out there for us and if I were you I would REALLY try to start understanding the texture and overall consistency of the products you use because even though cosmetic products or skincare have the same name (ex. moisturizer...) it doesn't mean they do the same thing or go onto the skin the same way. Once you understand how a product really works, you'll know whether you absolutely love it, or if in your opinion its just okay.

The current cosmetic trend I am obsessing over is the dewy, fresh, and bright skin with a bold neon pop. Whether its an ingenious blood orange eyeliner or a bright magenta lip, I am ALL in. The focal point of this trend is skin so if you don't have a good skin regimen, I would start fixing that. The skin should look even yet not overstated and the lighter the foundation coverage the better. If you have a lot of redness try adding a face primer after your moisturizer that has a reflective property (pearlized pigments) to reflect away from imperfections.

Keep your brows defined yet very soft, add a soft floral color to the cheeks and top it with a strong highlight (Bobbi Brown shimmer brick) to add an extra dewy shine, tight-line your eyes with eye liner (in the water line) on the top lid, pack on a good and dark mascara, for a little va va voom top it off with the Ardell lashes I've listed below, and last but not least... choose your bold neon lip color! Some days I do orange other days I do a pink or magenta. Whatever you choose, you'll rock it.

1- Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream: I love this product because its extremely moisturizing yet lightweight and with its time release system it provides moisture, nutrients, and skin conditioners to your skin through out the day. No matter what skin type you have, this is a good thing! And its a perfect start to this Fresh and Neon makeup trend.

2- Boots No. 7 Lifting and Firming Foundation: This foundation has is a lightweight formula with peptide technology to help produce collagen and elastin in the skin to help fim and smooth out lines. Even though this foundation is more suitable for more mature skin, I love the way it feels, the way the medium coverage hides imperfections while not looking heavy or cake-y, and how it holds through out the day.

3- Shimmer Brick Compact in Nectar from Bobbi Brown: Who doesn't love the Shimmer Bricks from Bobbi Brown? They are ridiculously amazing. If you haven't tried one, do yourself a favor and head to the nearest department store to purchase one. This shimmery sensation of a product can be work on the cheeks, eyes, and even areas of the face you would use to highlight. Why do I love Nectar?? It provides the PERFECT summer coral glow and it works on almost all skin types and tones. Its effortless.

4- Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Colour in Oleander: Long lasting, buildable coverage, velvety texture and finish, and this color will brighten any complexion. This blush is to die for.

5- Rouge Unlimited Lipstick by Shu Uemura in Shimmery Fuschia: This lipstick from Shu Uemura is gorgeous on its own or beautiful when paired with MAC's Magenta or Beet lipliners. Its soft and extremely moisturizing but packs a punch of color and pigment. I seriously can't get enough of it. Add some lashes! Ardell 120 wispie lashes: these lashes have a very Megan Draper from Mad Men look so naturally, I'm completely obsessed. They are just dramatic enough for your eyes to really pop but soft enough to feel classy and elegant.
