Since this is my second post ever, I thought I could share my everyday essentials regarding my makeup routine. I don’t wear makeup every single day, but when I am out for coffee, food, or classes, these are my basics.
Starting with foundation (I don’t really use a primer, just a good moisturiser as a base), I use the Loreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation in the colour 20 (Sand). I’ve been using it for a few months now and I really like it. I have quite dry skin but even though this is a matte foundation, it doesn’t really dry me out. I like it because it lasts all day and leaves a very natural finish. I apply it with a Beauty Blender or my Real Techniques brush (Cheek Brush).
I don’t really use concealer on a daily basis, so the next product I use is powder. M.A.C. Studio Fix in C3 is hands down my favourite powder of all times. As I said in my previous post, I used to have acne, and this is the only powder that would help me cover all imperfections. Now, I don’t use it on my entire face, just my T-zone and any other spot I believe it is needed.
Next product is bronzer. Lately I have been using my Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze bronzer and I literally love it. It is perfect for fair skin like mine and it gives my face a very natural tan. I don’t usually contour my face, but when I do I use also my Freedom Pro Contour Kit for fair skin. I apply it with my Real Techniques brush (No. 103).
Then for my eyes I don’t usually wear any shadow for everyday. I would sometimes put some bronzer in my crease to make my eyes look more awake. For mascara I use the Seventeen Lash Elegance. It is a great mascara, even though not my favourite. My all-time favourite is the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
For brows I don’t do much. I just use my NYX tinted brow mascara in Blonde to comb my brows and make sure they stay in place all day. It also gives some colour and makes them look fuller.
For highlighter I use my Carli Bybel palette. It is my all time favourite palette for shadows and highlighters. Colours are super amazing and very pigmented. I use my Real Techniques brush (No. 300) to apply it.
This is pretty much everything I use on a daily basis. I keep it pretty simple as I don’t like a full face of makeup for everyday. However I am thinking of changing it a little bit. I was thinking of trying the new Urban Decay All Nighter foundation. I’ve heard pretty good things about it. What do you think?
Lots lots of love!!!
