The ‘I Think I’m About to Get Engaged’ Starter Pack
If you’re glued to your phone pretty much 24/7 (and we know you are), then you’ve scrolled past (and likely double-tapped) a #StarterPack or two. While many of these viral memes often focus on fashion and lifestyle choices, we thought it was only appropriate that beauty got in on the fun too. Every month we’ll launch a Brit + Co beauty starter pack so whatever situation you find yourself in, you can have an Instagrammable skincare, haircare, and makeup roundup to match.
Thinking bae is going to propose? With that dreamy thought comes a mega makeup opportunity to look and feel your best on one of the biggest days of your life. To help you put your freshest, most angelic face (and hand) forward, below you’ll find seven beauty products (shown clockwise above, starting from top left) to have and to hold.
Pixi Skintreats Beauty Balm ($22): Let your natural beauty shine by skipping out on heavy foundations and opting for a barely-there balm instead. This rosemary- and quartz-infused BB cream creates a smooth, even finish that looks like your favorite Snapchat filter IRL.
Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Double Ended Eyeshadows in Bubble Bath($25): There’s nothing like a subtle pink lid to add a touch of romantic color to the sneaky day-of engagement pics your BFFs are hiding to capture. This dual-ended liquid eyeshadow gives you the option of swiping on a velvety matte or reflective metallic shade, or combining both to add a little depth to your #MOTD.
Benefit Cosmetics Roller Eye Bright Pencil ($20): Don’t let teary red rims ruin a picture-perfect engagement photo. Swiping your waterlines with this universally-flattering brightening pencil will create an instantly eye-opening effect.
Lancôme Monsieur Big Hearts Limited Edition Mascara ($25): Coat your lashes with this flake- and smudge-proof volumizing mascara to give your flirtiest doe-eyed flutter as they get down on one knee.
Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight & Blush ($45): For a radiant, rosy flush, swirl your fluffiest makeup brush into this six-shade palette to drape your cheeks and accent the high points of your face.
KAJA Heart Melter Lip Gloss Stick ($17): Formulated with vitamin-rich argan and plum seed oils, this heart-shaped tinted gloss melts into lips to moisturize, soften, and add a heavenly shine.
Nails Inc. Gel Effect Nail Polish in Mayfair Lane ($15): Make sure your mani is on point for the ever-so-necessary ring shot. This long-lasting pink polish is made with plasticizer technology and flower extracts to plump and condition your nail beds for a smooth, glossy finish that looks fresh off a magazine spread.
