Top 5 Everyday Makeup Products
I decided to do something a little different for today’s blog post. I want to share my top 5 go to products for my everyday no-makeup makeup look. :) I’m not a heavy makeup girl. So 90% of the time I keep it simple, unless I’m going somewhere special. I feel everyone should have just a few products that make them feel just a little more jazzy or put together rather than being barefaced. If bare face is your thing, that’s cool too! However, these are all products I love and will continue to purchase. In no particular order, here they are:
1. BECCA- Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector in Topaz ($38)
I typically use this by lightly dusting it all over my face, then I go a little heavier with it on areas I want to highlight (bridge of nose, cheekbones, and brow bones). I’ve also read that it can be used to set your foundation as well. It has over 1,000 rave reviews on Sephora's site!
2. Tarte- Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in the color Blissful ($28)
I absolutely love this blush for my no-makeup makeup look. It's perfect for my complexion. It's just the right color if you don’t want your blush to be too dramatic. I’ve tried darker colors and they just have been too over the top for day-to-day use. So this is perfect if you want a slight pop of color on your cheeks without the drama.
3. M-A-C ‘Eye Brows’ brow definer in the color Spiked ($16.50)
This is typically the only thing I use on my brows. They say defining your brows helps to frame your face. Of course, it works best on freshly waxed or plucked brows; this is when I have my best results. I use it to fill in, add color, and define my brows without overdoing it. ;) What I love most about it, is that you never have to sharpen it, so that’s one less tool you have to carry around. Even better, it lasts forever too...well almost forever!!
4. Maybelline- Volum’ Express The Falsies Washable Mascara in Blackest Black ($6)
I love the thickness this mascara gives my lashes. I apply two coats and I love the results I get. I switched to this recently after using the Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara for a while. This Maybelline mascara definitely does a better job at making my lashes pop.
5. M-A-C PAINTS in the color BAMBOOM ($22)
I use this as a eyeshadow all on its own or I use it to prime my lids and add other eyeshadows on top. It’s advertised as a eyeshadow, but it works great as a lid primer as well. It is said to last for 8 hours. I never have a problem with my eyeshadows creasing when I use this. This has been a staple in my makeup bag for years. Love love love it!
