When I started this blog, my intention was to share about all the things I enjoyed in my life. It has become more of a crafty blog to this point but I’m hoping to incorporate other types of posts as well, like this one. Today I wanted to share about something I’ve been a long time fan of, makeup, and how I do my current everyday makeup.
I start with foundation. I’ve been using the Cover Girl Outlast foundation for a while now. It gives great coverage and it really does last all day. The NYX Gotcha Covered concealer is pretty new to me, but I loved it from the first time I tried it. I feel like the combination of these products is the closest my skin has been to “flawless” in a long time. I finish it off with the L’oreal True Match powder (another old standby product for me). I like this powder because I feel like it does give a slight amount of coverage which you don’t always get in regular pressed powders.
If I’m going for bronzer I use the ELF bronzer. It actually comes with a blush as well, which is okay, but the bronzer is the gold star product here. Its matte and not too dark, which works well for contouring my pale skin. I put it where I think the hollows of my cheeks are (I have a very round face if you can’t tell), on my forehead, and a little on the sides of my nose. I also really like the Tarte 12 hour Amazonian Clay blushes. I’ve used a few shades in the past and the one I’m currently using is called Blushing Bride. Its a nice pink with a slight purple tone to it.
I love a good cat eye, and while I can’t say its really part of my “everyday” make up, I do wear it a lot on weekends and evenings. I’m using the Kat Von D tattoo liner right now, but I’m not totally loving it. Its supposed to be waterproof but I’ve had it smudge on me some. For right now, its what I have. I love the Cover Girl Total Tease mascara though. It makes me lashes really long, thick, and dark. Its great.
As far as lips go, I tend to rotate through a few different lip colors just depending on what I want that day. I really like NYX lip products because they work well and have a huge selection for a drug store brand. I also have been liking Tarte’s liquid lipstick in Cheerleader for a good red. And I do really love that Revlon lipstick as well, but the label is so small that I don’t know what its called! Its a really good purple-y pink (which you may have realized is a tone I like for my skin). And that’s it! It may sound like a like of products but I’ve got it to a pretty quick routine.
Until next time,
