Emily’s Fashion Diary

All the fun with L.A. Colors!

I love all things beauty, and love playing around with makeup! Beauty 21’s L.A. COLORS is one of my favorite brands because they have such a diverse collection of colors and products, all of which are available at amazing price points!

I love eyeshadow that pops, and the L.A. Colors Pigment Powders are perfect.  They are available in a wide range of bold colors with a frosty metallic finish that really packs a punch! Like all of their products, the powders are super long lasting and how amazing is this packaging? For everyday wear, I love Foiled, and when you want to have a bolder, more nighttime look, Twinkle is so good! There are 12 gorgeous shades to choose from – find your favorites here!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, my favorite part of a beauty look is always the lip! I love wearing different shades to compliment my outfits, and although I am typically more drawn to the brighter hues, these nudes are so great for everyday wear! The new Matte Liquid Lip Colors are great because they are super easy to apply (just like a regular lip gloss!), but the liquid formula dries to a SUPER matte finish that stays on all day and doesn’t dry out your lips!

I mean, how gorgeous are these shades? My favorites are Pampered for a gorgeous bright lip, and Vixen and Sultry are the perfect nude shades! Check out all their colors here.

Since I’m usually sporting a bold lip, the See You Later Lip Color Remover is super helpful when I have to change quickly from one look to another. This remover instantly takes off and dissolves even the brightest, darkest, longest-wearing lip colors, and leaves your lips feeling refreshed and new! Obsessed with this! Buy here!

You’ll really elevate your brow game with the Browie Wowie Brow pencils! My favorite off-duty looks is a fresh face with a strong brow – these brow pencils make it so easy and quick! These brow pencils add so much definition and have a slant-tip, which makes it easy to use. The end result is a super natural but defined finish! Find your shade here!

The final step in getting your brows ready is using a brow gel. The Browie Wowie Tinted Brow Gels will lightly tint and keep your brows in place, as well as thicken your brows, and are the perfect complement to the Browie Wowie Brow pencils! I love these! Find your shade here!

My two favorite mascaras from the line are the Drama Lash Mascara and the HD Waterproof Mascara! The Drama Lash formula intensifies your natural lashes, leaving you with super lush and luxurious lashes! It also nourishes and conditions with Vitamin E and Pathenol, which is so great. I usually layer on one coat of the HD Waterproof after applying Drama Lash so I get the ultimate high- definition look that lasts all day!

Life would be really hard without the right tools for our make up! This is the perfect set for everything you would need, and at a great price – you are able to get this full set of brushes for the cost of just one brush from another brand! This set contains a large powder brush, contour sculpting brush, multi-purpose brush, highlighter fan brush, concealer brush, tapered blended brush, and the precision lip brush! Everything you need in one handy set!
