Today I am going to share with you the makeup and products I use everyday. These have been my go-to makeup for a few weeks now. It is nice to have go-to makeup on mornings when you are still in the sleepy-land with one eye open, brushing teeth with face gel moments. Just kidding! Although I have come close to that.
To achieve the look, I use a lot of different products. Of course I could do it with less, but this way it is just more comfortable.
First step is to prepare my skin. I prime my face before I begin to add the other products.
Here you can see my “before” look with just the primer. As usual, I begin with the eye makeup. The reason for that is simple- if I don’t have foundation on, the fallouts are easy to wipe off. Otherwise I usually end up ruining the foundation.
To do the eye makeup I use the following products:
Etam Push Up Regard Crayon Kohl Ultra-Pigmente– Long name short- it is a white eyeliner in the tone 01 Beige Toute Nue. I use it in the corner of my eye, and on the lower waterline.
Etam Push Up Regard Crayon A Paupieres Longue Tenue– It is eyeshadow in creamy pencil form. I have it in the tone 02 Peche A La Ligne. I use it as a basecoat for my eyeshadow. The Etam´s eyeshadow pencil works really well as an eyelid primer. It holds all the colours in place and makes them pop more.
Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette – Colours Thirteen (inner corner), Combust (base), Whiskey (crease), Black Market (outer corner), Dirtysweet (lid), High (browbone).
I love how blendable the colours are. It is perfect for a smokey eye. It is also one of my Top 5 Products.
As you maybe noticed, I have some zitastrophies going on on my chin. To cover those up, I use multiple products.
On my face I used following products:
The Beauty Blender – You can read about it here
Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control– I have been using it only for a week, so I won’t give my judgement about it yet. Right now, I like it, but will I love it? Only time will tell.
Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous – I use the tone 810 Classic Ivory. This is actually one shade too light for me, but I can make it work with the help of bronzer. Also, if you have oily skin, you should use a primer under this foundation. A good powder can be a helpful product, to keep this foundation moving. I think it is more suitable for dry skin. Overall, I am not really happy with the foundation, but it isn’t too bad.
Revlon Colorstay Concealer– I have it in the tone “02 Light”. I wrote about this in my post entitled Work Essentials
The Body Shop Loose Face Powder– I am using the tone 02. It is a good powder. It sets and tones my face. Without this powder, my Covergirl foundation isn’t lasting more than four hours.
The Balm Fratboy blush – I talked about it in my Top 5 Product post.
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter – I talked about it in my Top 5 Product post.
The Body Shop Shimmer Waves – I have it in the shade 04 Coral. This is a perfect product to blend in blush and highlighter. On some days I also use it as a blush and highlighter in one. It is a good alternative during summer when your sunkissed skin needs just a little touch up with light shimmer.
Rimmel London Natural Bronzer – I use it in the shade 021 Sun Light. It is a natural bronzer with minerals.
When I have finished “my face”, I move to my brows, and lips.
Maybelline Browdrama Pro Palette – I have it in a shade 260 Deep Brown. Most of the time I use only powder.
Maybelline Volum´ Express The One By One mascara – I use the tone Satin Black. It gives great volume, and length. I have received quite a few compliments while wearing the mascara. Everything would be perfect if there weren’t one little problem- it has slight fallout after six hours of wearing. This is not my favourite mascara.
The Body Shop Lip Liner – I use it in a tone Clover Pink. It has a softer formula and is really easy to apply to your lips. The pencil defines, and creates a good base for lipstick.
NYX Butter Lipstick – I have it in the tone BLS17 Pops Explosif. I love this lipstick. I´ve been wearing it almost everyday since I got it in October. It has a nice soft buttery formula, and goes well with every look.
This is the final look.
