On a day to day basis, I don’t always wear makeup but when I do I like to keep it simple. Below are my basic necessities for when I want to look a little more put together and a little less dead! On days or nights that I go out I will add more to my makeup routine like gel liner, eye shadow, and a bomb highlight of coarse! But for daily life these are my must haves!
I like to start with my skin care routine (which I will do a separate post on) before I start my makeup. I start by priming my face with the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. I have super oily skin so this primer helps to keep my makeup in place. After I will go in with my L’OREAL Visible CC Lift Eye Concealer in the shade Fair. I love this because its a thinner formula and doesn’t cake or crease under my eyes. I tend to change up my foundation pretty often but right now I’ve been enjoying the Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation in the color Nude. Like I said, I’m super oily so anything matte always catches my eye. It’s a medium coverage foundation so it covers any imperfections while still looking like natural skin. After my foundation is applied I always set it with powder. I like to switch powder a lot also but the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder is a good inexpensive option! Then I add a little definition to my face with a bronzer like the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in the shade Sunny. Blush is my favorite part so I usually choose a different color each day. A staple blush in my collection is the Nars Blush in the shade Madly. It’s a very natural looking cheek color and it looks good on so many skin tones! Next, I move on to eyes. For everyday I prefer just mascara and brow powder. My absolute favorite mascara is the L’OREAL Telescopic Mascara carbon black! It’s my ride or die and I will probably never find one I love more. It lengthens, thickens, and separates my lashes perfectly. For brows, I like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder to make my brows look more natural and less drawn on. I use to shade Medium Brown. To finish off the perfect everyday look, I’ll add a bit of gloss or lipstick which is always changing. A favorite gloss of mine is the Mac Lipglass in the color Fashion Punch, which I believe is discontinued but I love all of the Mac glosses. And that concludes my daily makeup essentials for a flawless but natural look!
