Hello again, friends! Hayden from Pretty in my Pocket (PRIMP) here bringing you, as promised, another weekly dose of beauty must-haves from our lady-lovin’ app. This week, our favorite products were inspired by one of the ultimate, jaw-dropping beauty icons, Brigitte Bardot. Between the bold lashes, flawless face, and gap-toothed, pouty smile, it’s safe to say that old school B knew a thing or two about being a stunner. But guess what? So do we. Presenting this week’s fill of PRIMP-approved products…Bardot style.
1. Ardell DuraLash Accents, Bold ($4): We all know “enhanced” lashes are hands down the simplest way to give sex appeal to our peepers. Ardell DuraLash Accents are mini false eyelashes that go on the outer half of your lash line. For those of you who’ve never tried putting on falsies, it’s well…umm…a b*tch, but these are manageable, I promise. Simply line them up as close to your lash line on the outer end of your eye. This gives that beautifully feminine, Bardot cat eye effect. Finish by lining your entire lash line with liquid or gel liner to connect the lashes naturally. Voila! Instant drama.
2. Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish ($42 for 6.8 oz): A flawless complexion is step one in Makeup 101. Without a clean canvas of healthy, exfoliated skin, makeup can’t perform half as well and you’ll (more times than not) look really obvious or weirdly old (NOOOO). But don’t panic! Your face’s fairy godmother just dropped off your Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish, so you can breathe easy. Use this incredible cleanser every day or just before big nights when you know you’ll be applying a full face of makeup. Your mug will feel clean and smooth without that tight layer of dryness many cleansers can cause. While the price is a tad steep, if you’re looking for a simple routine for pre-makeup skin prep, this is the bees freaking knees.
3. Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain ($24): For a lightweight, hassle-free lip product to perfect your sexy pout, opt for Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stains. With dozens of “lip crayon” type products out there, Tarte lip stains are some of the most popular on the market AND on the PRIMP app. Topped with a minty fresh scent, this product gives you long-lasting pigment and a clean, matte, and moisturizing finish. Lips will look silky smooth and unbelievably smoochable. We like the Hope hue–a universally flattering, pink tint we know Brigitte would approve of.
Keep it classic, y’all,
