I’m pretty boring when it comes to my everyday face and I don’t switch it up too often unless I get something new and try it out or I run out of the stuff I use. I really like everything I’m wearing on a daily basis. There’s not a primer pictured here because I still haven’t found a primer that I like enough to use in my daily routine. Right now, I’m just using up the stuff I have and I’m trying to get rid of it. There’s also no eyeshadow pictured here because I don’t wear eyeshadow on a daily basis. I wear it sometimes when I have extra time in the morning but there’s not a certain palette I go for each time.
To start out, my holy grail foundation is Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. I wear shade 1C1 Cool Bone. I’ve worn so many foundations before and none of them have ever compared to this one. The staying power is amazing, the coverage is great, it makes me skin look flawless. This stuff is basically waterproof. I do Zumba with it on, Ive been in a pool with it on, it doesn’t come off until I want it to come off. It’s a perfect match to my skin and it feels comfortable all day. It’s a demi-matte finish and doesn’t dry my skin out. Which is definitely a plus because I have dry skin. I’ll replenish this when I run out. I always have a problem with my makeup separating on my nose. This is the only foundation that doesn’t separate on my nose. I’m stuck with this one for a while.
I use the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder to set my makeup (if I set it). Sometimes, I don’t set it because I’m going for less of a matte look and I want my skin to look more dewy. It’s comfortable on my skin and doesn’t dry my skin out. It’s super smooth and feels nice when it’s applied and keeps my makeup lasting even longer than it does by itself. The packaging that it’s in is the holiday limited edition packaging.
I really like the NARS Bronzer in shade Paloma. This was gifted to me and I love it. It’s the perfect shade for me and blends out really nicely. It has a matte highlighter next to it but I’ve never used it so I’m not sure how that performs. I use the bronzer to contour my face. I don’t use bronzer all over because I like to embrace my paleness.
For my highlighter, I use one of two products. I either use the Benefit Dandelion Twinkle or Too Faced Candlelight Glow in shade Rosy Glow.
I like to use the Benefit Dandelion Twinkle when I want something more natural and subtle. It’s good for a day when I wear less makeup and still want a little bit of a glow. It looks super pretty under the brow as a highlighter, too.
I use the Too Faced Candlelight Glow when I want a blinding highlight and a more lit from within look. I use this one when I do more dramatic makeup. I definitely pick this one when I do a shadow look. The rosy tone is what I really liked about it. I love pink tones in my makeup.
Both are really pretty and are awesome quality.
Next is blush. I’ve been using 2 different blushes. They’re both pretty similar shades. I use the City Color Be Matte Blush in shade BlackBerry and the Benefit Rockateur. They’re both a mauve shade. The City Color one is matte and is more pigmented so I have to be pretty light handed with it. I don’t like a lot of blush so I use very little product with this one. I use the Benefit blush when I want something more buildable. It also has a little shimmer to it.
For concealed, I use the Benefit Boiing in shade 1. I only use this to conceal my brows and carve them out after I fill them in. It’s a super comfortable full coverage concealer that’s a bit lighter than my skin so it helped to highlight on the brow bone. I haven’t used it on my under eyes but I’m sure it would work well under the eyes. I don’t typically conceal under my eyes.
I recently switched my brow product to the Precisely My Brow Pencil in shade 5. I switched because it’s a super smooth texture and it’s really easy to work with. I’m able to make it a natural or a bold brow depending on the look I’m going for. So far this is my favorite brow product that I’ve used.
For lash primer I’m using Lancôme Cils Booster XL. I use this under my mascara to help the mascara stay on longer without flaking and to condition & strengthen my lashes. I even use this as a lash mask at night while I’m sleeping to help promote growth. It has keratin in it so it prevents the lashes falling out. Since I’ve started using this, a second row of lashes has started growing above my normal lash line. It also boosts my mascara, so my lashes look even better than they do with the mascara.
For mascara I choose Lancôme Définicils. It’s a lengthening mascara which is what I typically go for. I love the way this mascara makes my eyelashes look. They get so much longer. The one I use isn’t waterproof, but it’s pretty water resistant so there’s no issues with it sweating off. I’m using the small size of both lash products because I got them for gratis a while ago. Now I’ve gotten the full size of both for gratis so I’m trying to use these up then I will start on the full size ones.
These are all the products that I have on my face on a normal day. I love them all and I highly recommend them to pretty much everyone.
