Hello! My name is Tamara Dungan and I guess it goes without saying that I’m a makeup junkie. I’m so excited for this opportunity to contribute to Makeup Obsessed Mom!
I’m 43 years old and a lifelong Indiana Hoosier. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 19 years and we have two daughters ages 15 and 4. No, we weren’t crazy enough to plan it that way…sometimes life throws you a curve ball. My husband and I are in the plumbing and heating business and my teenager is very active in volleyball and softball so we are always on the go. My favorite things to do in my downtime are reading, watching makeup videos on YouTube, and getting subscription boxes. I’m hopelessly addicted to beauty subs.
I love both high end and affordable products and I’m always trying new things.
Here are a few of my current obsessions.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation – You would think that at my age, I wouldn’t have to deal with oily skin as much, but my T-zone still looks like an oil slick toward the end of the day with most foundations. Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation is the best I’ve found for keeping that oil at bay. It gives good buildable coverage without feeling cakey. I’m still searching for my holy grail foundation but in the meantime, I’m pretty pleased with this one.
Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay-Matte Hydrator – Going right along with my oily t-zone are huge pores. I honestly fight my pores more than I fight wrinkles. At least I earned those wrinkles…these pores have no business here. So, one of my main missions in life is to find what products actually work to shrink or at least hide these pesky pores. I use this Clinique moisturizer every morning and it really does help. It makes my pores less noticeable and does a great job of moisturizing my skin.
Moda Prismatic Face Perfecting Brushes – I’ll admit that I cannot resist a pretty brush. So many times I’ve been burned by a pretty package that didn’t deliver. These Moda Prismatic brushes by Royal and Langnickel however, are amazing. They are super soft and easy to use. The largest one helps me apply my foundation in about 30 seconds flat. Plus, they’re easy on the pocketbook which makes me appreciate them even more.
Milani Rose Blush – I love this blush so much. I’m not being dramatic either…I really truly love it. When it comes to blush, I don’t like an overly pigmented formula. I’d much rather build it up than look like Krusty the Clown after one swipe. This Milani blush has such an easy buildable formula. It really makes it super easy to perfect a natural look and this shade, Tea Rose is just so pretty. The price point is budget friendly and can we just take a minute to admire the beautiful rose and packaging that is nicer than most high end blushes? Seriously, it’s one of my favorite things in the world!
Tarte Maneater Palette – This palette is so easy to use. It’s my get ready for work quickly but still look put together palette. It has great neutral colors and the formula is so easy to work with. It includes a great base shade, pretty transition shades, highlights, and darker colors to use for the outer corner or as your liner. I use every single shade in this palette and that’s saying something!
