It’s been about a year since last year’s post “What’s In My Makeup Bag”. Has it been about a year already? My, how time flies! I’m using a few new products since the last post. Did you see my review of my e.l.f. Cosmetics a couple of weeks ago? Since I like to use different products, I also use those. In this post, I’m sharing the products I use pretty much everyday.
Before I apply any foundation, I apply bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer in “Original”. I received a sample of the “Brightening” formula, which is more creamy. It works well too. I recommend using a primer before applying your foundation, because it prepares your skin so you foundation looks smooth. Next, I apply a concealer under my eyes, Revlon Colorstay Concealer in “Light Pale”.
About a month ago, I wanted to try a different foundation. Because I have sensitive skin, I have to be selective of the foundation I use. If I use just any foundation, my skin will break out and itch, and it’s not pretty! I have used bareMinerals Original Powder Foundation for years and it’s always my favorite foundation. I went out on a limb and decided to try bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in “Opal”. It’s a CC Cream and Tinted Moisterizer in one. It’s texture is soft and silky smooth and is so easy to apply. I put a small amount on the back of my hand and apply with my hands. Use can use as little or as much as you want. The coverage is light to medium. I set my makeup using bareMinerals Mineral Veil. I’ve used this for years too!
Since my eyebrows are light blonde, I fill them in with Maybelline’s Brow Define Fill Duo in “Blonde”, which works great! I apply my Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio in “Shutterspeed”, then use my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Smoke”. I love this one because it does just what the name says, “Glides On” smoothly. I recently purchased Nars Blush in “Orgasm”, which is a light neutral peachy color. I like to use just drugstore mascara, so right now I’m using L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes in “Black”.
My favorite part of my makeup routine is applying lipcolor. My weakness is lipcolor! My favorite shades are berries, corals and black-tinted reds. I recently purchased my MAC lipliner in “Spice” and MAC lipcolor in “Twig” and Nars Blush in “Orgasm”. I love all three. My other favorite lip colors are L’Oreal’s Tropical Coral and Blushing Berry.
