Beauty: My Everyday Make-Up Essentials
Keeping It Simple!
I’m not a huge fan of heavy make-up so when it comes to my daily routine, I like to use products that are fast and easy! I know it looks like a lot of products but I don’t use everything all at once. For example, one day I may wear the cream blush and the next day I may wear the boxed blush.
This is a must for me. I don’t tend to get a lot of sleep so I need this to cover my dark circles. I really like this liquid concealer b/c it’s not thick and doesn’t crease under your eye. It’s very light-weight and sheer so if you have severe dark circles, I do NOT recommend this. My dark circles are pretty manageable so this concealer is perfect for me.
I have tried a lot of pencils and this Japanese one is by far my favorite. The color is perfect for me and I like the thickness of the pencil tip. It also has a marker side but I don’t use it very much. I always have a back up of this pencil in my stash!
I’ve talked about this eyeliner so many times, I don’t know what else to say! It’s a great brush liner and I really like the Ultra Black color b/c it really is a dark black color.
If I’m going out for an appointment or to the grocery store, I’ll throw a little color on my lips. I’m a fan of this butter cream b/c it’s very moisturizing without feeling overwhelming on the lips. All of the colors are beautiful and pigmented.
I use this cream for everything! If my skin is feeling dry, or if my lips are chapped and need extra love, or if I have an open sore I’ll apply this cream. It seriously works for everything.
Anytime my skin feels dry, I’ll use a cream blush instead of a powder blush. I really like this light color which is great for daily wear. It blends nicely and last all day.
On normal skin days, I go for this boxed blush. I am LOVING the coral color which is perfect for summer! I have been using these boxed blushes for the last few years and they are my favorite. The colors are beautiful and I really like that they are long lasting.
So I dislike wearing foundation everyday. It’s just so heavy and I like to have my skin breathe. Most of the week I don’t even wear concealer but when I have problem areas, i’ll use this palette. The colors work perfect for my skin. I usually mix a few of the colors to get my right shade. They cover really well and they are long lasting.
I like to lightly dust this powder over my face during the day if my face gets oily. It does offer a little bit of coverage with a light dust but you can also build up for a fuller look.
