If I’m going somewhere special (i.e., not the office), I’ll add some shimmer. I love Bobby Brown’s Party Shimmer Brick that I bought a couple years ago but elf has similar baked highlighter for $3.00. I found it at Walmart and it’s become a favorite. For blush, I love Benefit, ELF, Stila, and NARS (Orgasm is THE BEST). I like rosy or coral pinks, depending on the season. Occasionally I’ll use luminizer, highlighter, or bronzer to contour my face… but that’s only if I’m feeling fancy.
I am not sophisticated and none of my products are complex. I’m always taking recommendations for foundation, primer, and contour.
