My makeup routine is constantly changing. Recently, I’ve found products that have been working well together, so I figured the blogosphere needed to know.
Primer: I always thought primer was pointless. It wasn’t until I bought THIS set that I realized its value. The Bare Minerals primer is perfection. My makeup actually lasts longer.
(Sidenote: I bought the primer, bronzer, and foundation in a kit (linked above) from Sephora. I really recommend it because it has all of the face makeup you need.)
Concealer: Makeup Forever Concealer Pallette. I like to mix to find the perfect shade.
Blush: NARS Penny Lane (still my favorite after years)
Primer: Always, always, always use primer on your eyes if you plan on putting any type of eyeshadow/liner on. The NARS version is my favorite. It is worth the money and makes your shadow more vibrant and long-lasting.
Eyeliner: Stila Smudge Stick in Stingray “smudged” on the upper lash line
Mascara: Boots No7 Exceptional Definition. This mascara is “exceptional”, especially for the price. The wand has 3 parts: one is for lengthening, one for volume and the tip has a little ball perfect for corner lashes.
Highlight: If I’m feeling lazy I’ll use the lighter color in the NARS duo, otherwise I use the Mary-Lou Manizer from the Balm. Out of all of the highlighters I’ve used (believe me, there have been a lot…) this takes the cake. It is perfect for your inner corner.
Alba Botanica Lip Gloss in Pineapple Quench (great clear gloss)
