img_6843

Hi Loves I hope everyone is getting in the Holiday Spirit! This is one of my favorite times of the year because I LOVE the Holidays!! Spending time with my family is by far the highlight of the Holidays for me because I live about three hours away from them. But let’s get into this post which is about concealer! Concealer is one of my favorite makeup items. Specifically concealer to highlight, I think it truly does take a makeup look to the next level. For about two years now NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer was my Ride or Die!!!! This was the only high end concealer I used to highlight. About two months ago I decided to step out the box and try something new, the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme. I must admit I’m SO happy I tried it!

FOTD: Tartelette in Bloom Pallet

img_6713

We made it to day five!!! The Tartelette in Bloom pallet is one every girl should have. This is honestly the perfect everyday pallet. I remember earlier this year this pallet is all I reached for. It’s a true neutral pallet that only has three shimmers. Obviously people would automatically reach for the shimmers to put on the lid so I decided to do a full matte eye just to show the versatility. Thank you guys for sticking with me these five days! I hope to get some reviews up soon since I have been using a lot of new products. Full product list is below!

Hi Loves! I can not believe it’s been four LONG months since I posted on Raia’s World! I am so so sorry 😦 Things have been a whirlwind around me! I could go into the long drawn out story about why I haven’t been posting but I will save you the boring read. My time is not my own these days so I don’t foresee tons of post in my future, but I will try to get mini post out there for you guys throughout the next couple of months. Thank you guys for understanding!

This is my go to look these days. It takes me about 20 minutes to get this look but I truly do love it.

Face:
Tart Timeless Smoothing Primer
NARS All Day Luminous Foundation (apply with fingers)
NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer (highlight under-eye, nose, chin)
Ben Nye Topaz Powder (set highlight)
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish (set whole face)
MAC Refined Golden (bronze cheeks, forehead, nose)
MAC Ambering Rose Blush
Becca Topaz Highlighter
Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray

Brows:
Urban Decay Brow Beater (New FAV)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer (clean up brows)

Eyes:
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Beauty Supply Store Lashes

Lips:
MAC Dej Loaf Lipglass (perfect nude gloss)

In both these pictures I have the exact same look. I have been skipping eyehsadow and eyeliner. This makes putting on my makeup a lot faster. I also still feel glam with very minimal effort.

Thanks for sticking around loves and being patient with my blog. Be on the look out for more mini post. As always, if you have questions leave them below and thanks for reading! xoxo
