As someone who has mastered the skill of applying my make-up in a mere 5 minutes, I rely heavily on dependable brands with high quality products that can make even the swiftest make-up applications look like you've spent the day getting ready. That's where Cate McNabb cosmetics comes into play. I get so many questions about how I do my make-up, but trust me, there's really no skill -- the finished product is purely the result of good make-up. Not only does Cate McNabb provide runway-ready colors in formulas that are stripped of all the additives that clog your pores and irritate your skin, but there's also no parabens or perfumes, – just mineral-based cosmetics that offer you the brightest, purest pigments without clogging your pores or irritating your skin. Below are a few of my favorites...
Eye Primer ($16) - I always apply eye primer before applying my eye shadow for a smooth, crease-free look.
Slate Eyeshadow ($16) - This is my go-to shade. A light layer is all you need for a neural day look, while a few more layers will help you achieve the perfect smokey eye.
High Definition Powder ($20) - This celebrity beauty trick is a translucent finishing powder that helps to set your foundation for a long lasting look. It even helps to blur imperfections.
Lipstick in Fetch Pink ($16) - A light and super smooth long wearing lipstick in the perfect shade of pink!
Lip gloss in Face It Fuchsia ($16) - This gorgeous gloss is made with shea butter and jojoba oil for the perfect shine without the dreaded sticky feeling.
Large Powder Brush ($28) & Eyeshadow Brush ($24) - Super soft brushes that make for a flawless application are a must.
