I want to veer a little bit from my typical design posts and talk about my six must have makeup items. I love reading these from other bloggers, so I hope you do too!
When it comes to my daily makeup routine, I like to keep things relatively simple. I don't like to spend a lot of time on my everyday makeup, so I've searched for items that would help me accomplish a put-together look without taking up my whole morning. Here are the items I've found that I always grab for day after day.
First is face primer. I recently started using this primer (within the last few months, I'm actually almost out) and I really like it! I will say, I don't notice any reduction of my pores, but it does make my foundation go on smoother and last longer. So, for me that's a win.
Next is foundation. I have been using this L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation for almost a year. I love it. I've try the glow one and I think it made me break out. So, the pro matte is my go-to. It goes on nicely and with the primer it really lasts all day.
Eyeshadow primer is something I never thought I needed. Until I tried it. Now, I'm hooked. I got this sample size of Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I love it. It goes on nicely and makes my eyeshadow more pigmented and makes it last without creasing. It's a must now for me.
That leads me to this eyeshadow palette. I got this for my birthday and use it everyday. It is the perfect combination of peachy colors. There are pinks and browns and nudes. Everything I could want in one palette. Plus it smells good! It smells like peaches! Win!
After the eyeshadow I put on my mascara. I've been hooked on Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, but it's pretty pricey. So, my mom recommended this alternative that has been compared to the Too Faced one. I have to say, I love it! It's L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise and is only about $5 at Target. That's a win to me!
Finally, my last must have is this Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. I got this in a sample kit awhile ago, and I'm still loving it. It goes on nice and matte so I'm not all shimmery, which is perfect for winter. And, it smells like chocolate! Who wouldn't want their makeup to smell like chocolate?
There you have it. My six makeup must-haves. These are the six makeup products that help me get ready quickly in the mornings, while still helping me to look put together.
If you have any questions or if you've tried any of these products let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
