I’ve always tried many different make up products to find the“perfect” items for my make-up routine and my skin. After trying hundreds of products over the years, I can finally say I found my go-to items. I have been using most of these products for the last few years and have to say they are amazing. Today, I’m gonna share my favorite products that I use during my daily make-up application routine that’s under 10 minutes.
I have somewhat oily skin so I always look for matte products. Before I begin my make up application, I always wash my face with the Face cleanser and make up remover. Next, I apply the Kaiame Naturals Moisturizer and the Bellezza Secreto Primer primer. Guys, this primer is so amazing. It makes my skin super smooth and the foundation stays on all day.
My two favorite foundations that I’ve been using for the past few years are the barePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Foundation and the No7® Beautifully Matte Foundation. When I need full perfect looking coverage, I go for No7. For daily use, I usually use the Bare Minerals foundation. It has decent coverage and is better for my skin. If you don’t mind spending a little more for a good quality foundation, the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is amazing. It smells so good too. This definitely provides full coverage and stays on all day.
I apply the foundation with either my finger or with a silicone applicator (Silicone Blender). I don’t like using brushes because they waste too much foundation in my opinion. I also think the silicone applicator helps blend in the foundation and concealer nicely. Next, I use the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer under my eyes, on my chin and on any blemishes.
Now, I always set my foundation with a power foundation for additional coverage. Hands down, the best powder foundation is the Manhattan Cosmetics 2 in 1 Perfect Teint Powder . I use the shade “Beige” under my eyes and on my chin, and “Peach” overall on my face. My dad sends me like 20 powders each year from Germany since I’m obsessed with this powder. I have found it here in the US on amazon and eBay but sometimes they are out of stock. Another powder that I like using is the Physicians Formula Mineral Foundation in Creamy Natural.
For my eyes, I usually just use the 100 Percent Pure black pencil Eye Liner to contour the outer corner of my eyes. I love all of the 100 Percent Pure products. It’s probably the best make-up brand I was able to find. Their products are actually natural and truly “clean”. I tried their foundations and powders but they didn’t work too well for my skin. I also use a Silky nude eyeliner inside my eyelid from essence.
Now let’s talk mascara. I have tried so many Mascaras and L’Oreal never disappoints. My current favorite is probably the Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. But I have been using these two as well: Extra Volume Collagen Mascara and Voluminous False Fiber Lashes.
When I go out or do photo shoots, I love wearing false lashes. The best and most natural looking lashes are the Eylure Accent Lashes. They are super easy to apply and look so pretty.
For my lips, I love nude/peachy tones. I have a few favorite lipsticks. My go to is the MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Nippon. I also like the Bare Minerals Gen Nude lipstick in shade XOX, Heaven or Love. These lipsticks are super creamy and shiny. They go on smoothly and look gorgeous.
