This post may be a little bit long but definitely necessary to fit everything in. While I do not always wear this much makeup, these are my go-to items for everyday, blogging, and going out. I wear most of this makeup on a daily basis and swear by all of it. I have played with makeup for years and have done so much experimenting with so many different brands, types, colors.
One: Urban Decay Foundation in 3.5
I have been using this foundation for a few months now and I love it. I have combination skin:oily in summer and quite dry in winter, but I still get oily in my t-zone. This one is perfect for my skin. It’s not too dry or too oily. It has a light coverage but can be layered if needed.
Two: Sephora Pro Airbrush
For the longest time, I was using my hands to put on my makeup. I finally found a brush that I like that doesn’t soak up my makeup. It allows for easy application and blends so well.
Three: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder & Sephora Powder Brush
I love love this powder. It is amazing that it is translucent and has virtually no color to it. It applies very smoothly and is great for controlling shine with or without foundation. The brush is perfect for applying the powder and is one of the best I have ever found.
Four: Boi-ing Concealer in Light
I use this for the small coverups or larger ones. This has worked great for under eyes or for those small break outs or bumps I get here and there. The coverage varies from minimal to heavy, depending on how I apply it.
Five: Smashbox BB Cream in Light
This stuff is great for the under eyes when I am experiencing major dark circles (admit it, this happens to us all)! This is great for highlighting the under eye region and for covering small spots on the go.
Six: Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna
Even though I am quite a bit fairer in complexion, this stuff is awesome. A little goes a very long way with this and it lasts forever! I dust it on cheekbones and under my hair line for a nice bronze glow. In the summer this is my go-to as well to give me that summer glow!
Seven: Chanel Powder Blush in Rose Initial
I have been using this blush for so long, I can’t even remember using a different one. I love a nice rose colored blush for my fairer complexion, although I don’t use it every day. The powder blush gives a nice warmth and sparkle on the skin.
The last step in my makeup routine (I know, finally)! I can notice a giant difference when I use this spray and it makes my makeup last a very long time, without having to reapply. Has been great in these winter months for makeup duration.
The best thing to happen to my skincare routine in a long time. Since I wear makeup daily, this has been the best item to remove makeup and cleanse my pores after a long day. I use this once to twice a day and love how it has transformed my skin. It has minimized my pore size and made my skin feel softer overall.
Hope you all enjoyed these makeup tips! I know this was a long post, but I wanted to share some makeup advice. Most of the reasons I found the makeup I use today is through reviews and information like this. Would love to hear of makeup recommendations from you. If you have any good tips/ tricks/ reviews please feel free to share! Love trying out new products!
