I wanted to do a post like this since I started my blog and was unsure about it and then over the weekend I just decided to go for it.
I love watching makeup tutorials and hauls on YouTube and so I decided, why not talk about the makeup I wear everyday? I’m a creature of habit so this is basically the same makeup I use anytime I decide to put makeup on, the only thing that really changes is the eyeshadow, but even then I’ll use the same one color for weeks!
The only concealer I really use is this under eye concealer (in the brightening shade because it’s pale enough for me). I have yet to find a concealer I like for blemishes. This e.l.f. eye shadow primer is so good and only two dollars. Also pictured above is the L’Oreal eye brow pencil (I have to use an eyebrow pencil otherwise it’s like I don’t even have them), however I just tried the Nyx micro brow pencil and I think I prefer it more. But you know, options are good too.
Blush is something I absolutely love! I think I currently have five different blushes sitting on my dresses, but like I said I’m a creature of habit and tend to reach for the same one for weeks at a time. Currently loving this matte blush from Milani in the shade delizioso pink. (Dolce pink and tea rose in the rose powder blushes, also really pretty.) Favorite brushes for blush are the Sigma brush (on the right) and the It Cosmetics brush (on the left, also really good for foundation.)
(this EcoTools blush brush is also a favorite!)
I haven’t used the bronzers in the Nyx Highlight & Contour Palette but I love the top two shades on the left. The first one is a great highlight and the second color is a good setting powder (I’ve also used it all over my eyelids on days I don’t feel like applying shadow).
And then that’s that and I can happily look in mirrors all day and then regret putting it all on at 10pm when I have to take it all off. Seriously taking makeup off is the worst part of even putting makeup on.
P.S. I don’t use setting sprays except in the late spring/summer when it’s hot and I’m taking blog pictures outside but the L’Oreal Makeup Extender Setting Spray is a good choice.
