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.primer: 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!
