Eyebrows truly make your face and that is certainly true when creating a vintage-inspired look. This luxurious brow pencil comes with a built-in brush to soften your lines for a defined, yet natural look.
If you want thick, voluminous lashes without falsies or nasty chemicals, this is the mascara for you. It's made with organic plant waxes, raw minerals and is both organic and cruelty-free. Which is what you want in a product going near your eyes. Even with being organic, this mascara doesn't sacrifice quality or effectiveness and lasts all day for gorgeous, full lashes.
I have been using Urban Decay since I was in high school. This is my all-time favorite shadow primer. I use it both under eyeshadow solo for an even, natural-looking finish for my lids when I'm doing an everyday vintage look. Speaking as someone with sweaty, oily lids, I can attest that this primer really does what it promises in not getting in the creases of your lids or letting your shadow travel across your face. A little goes a long way with this product!
I was introduced to this awesome product after a facial session here in Portland, and I've been hooked ever since. This 3-in-1 primer is free from parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oils, synthetic dyes AND chemical UV absorbers. It moisturizes your skin and gives your foundation a fighting chance against oil, heat and atmospheric moisture.
So, my mom, owner and proprietor of Needful Things Natural Home & Body Care actually specially blended my foundation powder the old-school way using ingredients like arrowroot powder, cinnamon, and cacao, but I also really like this one. It gives a nice, matte finish which is integral to achieving that vintage porcelain-skinned look (I'm referring to texture, not color, I enjoy being brown!). Warm Beige is the darkest that this powder comes in and I tan very easily, so you can always add some bronzer to make it match your skin tone flawlessly.
I love this cheek stain for a gorgeous, everyday natural flush for cheeks. I apply a little on my cheeks straight from the container, then use my fingers to blend.
Any bombshell worth her salt will tell you that this cult classic is all it's cracked up to be and that much more. Perfect for achieving that perfect cateye with an easy-to-use precision brush. This liner is truly sweat-proof, oily skin-proof, waterproof, cry-proof...trust me, I've done it all with this liner, even slept in it only to have it still be perfect the next day! Shhhh, don't tell! =)

I definitely saved the best for last---I am in LOVE with this color. I originally got it as a sample with another red lip stain that I ended up throwing away and ordering the full size of this one. It's matte without being drying and literally lasts all day. It's a gorgeous, bold, classic red that looks amazeballs on a variety of skin tones. The key to wearing red lipstick really is confidence, some women believe it's hard to find a shade that works for them, but I believe (primarily based upon my blue lipstick punk rock days) that if you decide you're gonna rock it confidently, then it's officially your color and it looks great on you! A social media friend of mine recently purchased this color based on my recommendation, and it looks amazing on her too.
Well, there you go, Dolls. Hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my faves for a wearable, everyday vintage-inspired look. Try it out and make sure to tag me @cazoshay_marie & #DIDwithCazoshay so I can see your look!
