Favorite Makeup Essentials
I’m really big on simple makeup because I find it especially hard to find makeup that goes well with my skintone. I try to stay away from dark eyeshadows and smokey eyes. Here are a few of my favorite makeup essentials!
Foundations & Primer
Left to Right: Egyptian Magic Cream, Napoleon Perdis spray foundation, BB Cream, Foundation & eyeshadow primer.
I just added the egyptian magic cream because I used it as a moisturizer yesterday when I applied my makeup 🙂
Really love this spray; it works especially well for my skin and for that I’m thankful. I use it when I want pretty light coverage as it doesn’t make my skin feel heavy. But, if I’m going to Vegas then I’ll put on foundation and put this over it.
I use this most of the time, hence why it is all used up. I really love this although it is quite pricey but lasts a really long time. The coverage is heavy and it doesn’t make my face look like an oil slick.
Just something new that I’ve haven’t really used that often but I like its coverage. It’s medium and although it makes my skin sorta dry it really surprised me by how well it works. It was also my first American BB cream.
I got this as a gift so I’ve been using it… do I think it works? It helps but not really for me; I would love to try the Urban Decay Primer.
My favorite Clinique Lippie. In all my photos, I’m always wearing this because it feels great and looks great.
Sorry, I was in a rush so my lipstick is all smeary.
This Calvin Klein Mascara is just okay, but it looks nice enough and is easy to apply on my lashes. I use it just for school or when I’m just going for a super casual look (no eyeliner, just mascara and lipstick).
My favorite mascara ever!!! People complain that it gets bad after 2 weeks due to clumping etc… but I still love it! It adds so much volume and makes my lashes look long and thick. Also, it’s very dark which is an added bonus for me!
