the real real pt.1

you know me, i’m a simple girl at heart.  i love makeup, i love cosmetics, but honestly?  i always feel overdone when i actually do my makeup.  when i’m going to work (the only time i put makeup on really), i just want to look fresh faced and pulled together.  so here are the actual products that you can find on rotation.  these are my staples, these are all i use, these are the real real.

part one: the face base.IMG_4392.jpgIMG_4395.jpgprimer: this is a new find!  i can no longer put on makeup without using my too faced hangover primer (i have the mini size).  it gives my dry skin a little more moisture and i really see a difference in the longevity of my makeup.  no more coming home, looking in the mirror, and questioning my existence and how long i actually looked like this

foundation: not that it can really be called that.  on most days, the glossier skin tint in light or medium, season-depending.  if i feel i need a little more coverage (ish), i mix in a little of the nars tinted moisturizer with the skin tint.  this is a winter product for me for the most part, cause it is my winter shade – light 0 terre neuve.

concealer: not pictured cause it is lost in my purse somewhere.  but you know it’s the nars radiant creamy concealer.  my summery/fall shade is creme brulee, but i’m quickly reintroducing vanilla.  the pale face is heeeere (poltergeist voice).

bronzer: either matte – benefit hoola – or radiant – soap&glory solar powder.  even if i’m not wearing anything else, i’m always wearing bronzer.  just a little bit in the right places makes all the difference in my eyes.  the solar powder is my new obsession and i don’t see myself putting it down anytime soon, while the hoola is something i’ve worn for years and years.  i think it was my first bronzer besides the bare minerals warmth which just wasn’t pretty when i put it all over my face in high school.

extras: if there’s blush happening, which there really rarely is, it’s nars impassioned.  this is my dream blush.  just a hint of neutral flush that looks perfect on my pale cheeks.  and if i need a little more glow, it’s the rms living luminizer.  it’s the only product i use for highlighting and i love the extremely natural youthful glow.  bare minerals original foundation in fairly medium is always in my purse (again not pictured as i can’t seem to locate it) for when i’m a little too shiny and need some toning down, or just a little bit more coverage.

stay tuned for part 2 coming soon!
