My everyday make-up routine is pretty simple and I thought it would be nice to share which products I'm currently reaching for on a daily basis. I like to keep my everyday look simple because I don't always have the time to make a more dramatic look and natural is always great specially during the summer.
For my daily foundation, I always go for Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation. It's one of my favourite foundations and in my opinion it's ideal for an everyday use because it's such a lightweight base. Sometimes, I'll go for my L'oreal's True Match foundation but lately, I've been reaching for this one instead. For colour reference, I'm in shade 53 Light Beige (I'm NC 30 right now in MAC foundations). I rely on Mac Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer (NC 30) to cover my zits or pimple scars. I don't normally use concealer because foundation is usually enough to cover some skin imperfections but my skin recently had skin breakouts which left me with scars and pigmentation and this concealer just covers them well. Next is my Mac blush in "Gingerly",, this is one of my favourite blush for the summer. I love that it has a matte finish therefore I can wear shimmery highlighters on my cheekbones and eye shadows on my eyes. Too much glitters or shimmers on the face is not for me. For my everyday highlighter, it's official, it's the Josie Maran Argan Enlightement Illuminizing Veil is my favourite at the moment! It's the perfect everyday highlighter that gives me that subtle glow that my face needs.My favourite thing to use on my eyebrows is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in dark brown. I love this one because it does not budge and last all day. It's a little difficult to use that's why you have to be careful and use it with a light hand. A little dab of the brush on the pan goes a long away. For my lips, I use Clarin's Lip Perfector in shade 05, I love everything about this lip product. Read my review "here" . Get one for yourself and you won't regret it, it's perfect to use with any season. I use Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in dark brown to line my eyes, I've been using this for years now and I only have good words for it. It last long and easy to use. I also love the brush that comes with it. Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara in 01 Black is also a staple at the moment. This mascara is great for a more natural look and lasts well throughout the day, no smudging! It actually does the job when it comes to lifting my poor eyelashes. They really need a lot of "lifting power" because they're so thin and they like to go to the downward direction. You get what I mean right? LOL
So there you go, a little insight into my basic everyday makeup. Keeping it simple is less of a hassle but you can always add a little extra into your daily look like a shimmery eye shadow or a bright lipstick. What are your everyday make-up essentials?
