my friend, shanna.

i have a little treat for you all today. my new bloggie friend, shanna, is here to give her two cents on her favorite cosmetic products. and let me tell you, you should take note because this gal has fabulous taste (on top of the most adorable children and fabulous fashion sense). i might be picking up a few of these products when i get back from vacation, just sayin. thanks, shanna!


Well, hello there, Pocket Full of Chuckles readers!  I am Shanna with Because Shanna Said So.  I was so honored and excited when Erica asked me to guest post while she enjoys a little vacation R&R.

I am an Austin, Texas blogger and I typically blog about fashion, outfit posts, randomnesses of life and everyone's favorite...product reviews! 

So, today I thought I would share a few cosmetics products that I cannot live without, use every single day and that have helped improve the overall look of my skin.  I consider all of them a necessity and could not survive without them....and no I am not being over dramatic. 

Here we go...

Dermablend Cover Creme.
This magical creme covers like no other and will last up to 12 hours. My dermatologist recommended it to me a few years ago and I have never turned back.  A little bit goes a long way, so it lasts forever. They have several shades to choose from.  I think this entire line is fabulous and is SPF 30.  This stuff seriously changed my life...okay, maybe not my life, but definitely my face. I use the Beauty Blender to achieve all over, even coverage.  Which leads me to the next product.

The Beauty Blender
The Beauty Blender is a 2011 Allure Best Beauty Award Winner. It was invented by a Hollywood makeup artist. You can apply liquid or powder foundation with this sponge. Just get it damp and you are all set.  It really does help give a flawless, even look.

Bare Minerals Foundation

 I have been using Bare Minerals for at least 7-8 years.  No lie!  I have EXTREMELY oily skin and because it is mineral based, it helps with oil control.  If you are worried about it not providing good coverage, let me calm your nerves.  The coverage is phenomenal and it's light weight so you won't look like a cake face.  The only downfall to this product is that it is messy.  I always apply it in my jammies or an old shirt.

Make Up Forever HD Powder
This stuff is the BOMB-DIGGITY.  I use this after I have applied the Bare Minerals. It is a super fine powder and is a universal shade.  It sets your foundation and matifies your skin.  This is another one that goes along way.  And it is a little messy too....but so worth it.  

Kabuki Brush
 I use a kabuki brush for both the Bare Minerals and Make Up Forever Powder.  I pick mine up at Ulta and use an inexpensive brand.  To me they are all the same, so don't feel like you have to go out and buy a $50 one. I do recommend using this brush if you wear any sort of loose powder cosmetics.

There we have it.  Again, I swear by these products and even did a video on how to apply them all.  Feel free to check it out here. Just promise me you won't laugh at my before and after pictures.  I took one for the team with that post!

Thanks again, Erica for having me today!  I hope to see all of you again real soon!! And you are more than welcome to come visit me at Because Shanna Said So anytime!  I promise to offer the best Texas hospitality around!

Cheers to making new friends soon, y'all!
