This may look like a lot but trust me, I am the last person to cake my face. The key is to lightly apply your makeup, that sounds like common sense but I use to use way too much foundation when it wasn’t needed.
I have oily skin so I need to use primers that control my shine. I use the Nars Pore & Shine Control Primer. It’s lightweight, minimizes my pores and controls shine.
My foundation is the *L’oreal True Match*, I love the range of shades available within this formula. I also appreciate that the undertone of the foundation is clearly labeled on the bottle, it makes it easy to find your perfect shade.
I use the MAC Studio Finish Concealer to lightly ‘underline’ my brows and conceal blemishes, this concealer is also available in a wide range of different undertones. I have had this concealer for about a year now, the coverage is amazing and it blends nicely. It has lasted me a long time and I plan on repurchasing when I run out.
I use MAC Raizin blush to add a little color to my cheeks.
I fell in love with the Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick (rose gold) when I swatched it. It’s so pigmented and looks great against my brown skin. I like to use my fingers to apply a little bit of it to my cheekbones. This could also double as an eyeshadow.
I love the *L’oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara*! The packaging is sooo cute. I came across this on Amazon & purchased this on a whim. I definitely notice that this mascara lengthens my lashes and doesn’t clump them together. I will for sure repurchase.
I despise chapped lips!!! I usually put on some kind of chapstick/lipbalm when I begin my makeup. I really love the *Rosy Lips Vaseline*, my skin is darker but I like to think that this makes a difference regarding the color of my lips lol.
This Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss has been my favorite since middle school. It’s perfectly glossy and not sticky. Strangely, I don’t feel a plumping sensation I just like the gloss.
And now onto the most important part of my face….
This *Rimmel London eyebrow pencil (black brown)* is life! I don’t know what it is but I always come back to this. I prefer wooden brow pencils because you can see how much product you are getting. I have used several different brow products ( I still want to try brow mascara now that my brows are grown out and i’m loving the messy look) from brow pomade to brow powder. I also was using the MAC brow pencil which I loved but it never lasted me long at all and the price wasn’t worth what I was getting from it.
I la-la loooove this e.l.f Clear Brow and Lash Mascara!! It’s only $2 and does the job. I typically use this on my brows but I will sometimes but the clear gel on my lashes.
I took the 2 brushes on the left hand side from my sister so I have no idea where I got them from but they are my favorite! I use the concealer brush and the spooly and the angled brush for my brows. Although I use a brow pencil I sometimes use the angled brush to get the product from the pencil onto my brows.
I recently purchased the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, it’s nice and dense. I prefer this sponge over the Beauty Blender, it’s only $7 and is a 3-in-1 versatile makeup sponge.
I use buffing brush from the *Real Techniques Core Collection* to sometimes spread my foundation out and then I always like to finish my foundation off with dabbing the sponge all over to “set it”.
I hope you enjoyed!
