My Everyday Makeup Essentials

Check out my Everyday Makeup Essentials
Hey lovelies, I’ve seen blog posts and YouTube videos about their “Everyday Makeup Essentials” and I would like to share my own version with you guys. Most of the products in this post are on the pricier side. I have a really sensitive skin, and is prone to breakouts, the products mentioned below are the only ones that worked for me so far. The products I use may seem a lot for some of you, but that’s how I like it and the end result is a natural finish. So without further ado, let’s begin.

Check out my Everyday Makeup EssentialsPrepping the skin:Before I start with my routine, I often blast some music up. Who doesn’t love getting ready to Queen Bey, right? I feel like it gives me that extra push to get going in the morning. Hahah. (Does any of you feel that way too?)

Moisturizer 
I’m still searching for that perfect moisturizer that will match my skin. More often than not I tend to get oily with most of the moisturizers I’ve tried. I’ve tried moisturizers recommended by a dermatologist, high-end and drugstore moisturizers, but none of them seems to work. Until I found this Simple Moisturizer, it’s still not what I’m looking for but it works better than most of the ones I’ve tried.

Primer
On a daily basis, I don’t usually put primer. I feel like primers are the ones causing my breakouts or maybe just this one that I’m using. But if I do use a primer, my go to is the MAC Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist. I just spritz it all over my face and it gives that more refreshed look.

Lip balm/Lip primer
My current lip balm/lip conditioner is the Jersey Shore Sun MONGONGO. I got this in one of my subscription box from Ipsy. It is organic and its anti-aging plus it smells so good!!

Makeup Routine:

Foundation
Whether I have 5 mins or an hour to get ready, foundation is something I can never go out without. This helps me even out my complexion and makes me look refreshed, and I feel like skipping this step makes me look tired. I’m currently loving the NARS All day Luminous Weightless Foundation. It has a light to medium coverage that gives a natural finish. I usually apply it using a beauty blender, and the finish it gives is AMAZING! If you want a foundation that doesn’t feel like you’re wearing one, I recommend you to try this.

Concealer
This is another essential to my makeup routine. For me, foundation and concealer is like Batman and Robin. One can’t go alone without the other. (Is that a weird comparison? hahah)  But yea, you get what I mean. The best concealer for me so far is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. It matches well with my foundation, and it blends well with my skin tone. It’s good at hiding my blemishes too without looking cakey

Brows / Eyes
I’m not an expert on brows, I still have a lot to learn about how to properly fill them. But, I think I’m getting better at it a little bit. Before, brows are the last thing on my makeup routine, I usually just skip them if I have no time. Today, I finally include it in my routine. The product I’m currently using is the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel. It does its job well in filling my brows PLUS it’s only $4. After filling in my brows, I usually go straight toeyes.  You can never go wrong with a winged eyeliner. I swear by the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner. It’s perfect for my winged eyeliner since it’s not that thick, which works well on how thick or thin you want your eyeliner to be. I often skip mascara since I am allergic to it.

Contour
My FAVOURITE part of my routine!! My go-to contour palette is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. I use this palette on a daily basis, and I’m in love with it. It’s highly blendable and it really gives that definition to your face. I often dust a little bit in the hollows of my cheekbones, and a little bit on my temples and forehead.

Lips
Finally, on to the lips. I often alternate between the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm and the MAC Satin Lipstick in Captive. I swear by these two, it doesn’t dry my lips and I just love it! I’m someone who can’t go out and leave the house without any color on my lips.

    Thanks for the tips. These look like some good products I’ll have to try. I typically like MAC but maybe there are other good brands.

      Thanks girl for taking the time to read it. I appreciate it. <3 I tried some of MAC products and it doesn't really work that good on my skin, it makes my skin looks yellowish and cakey. Lol. xo

    I love all of the colors of this makeup palette. Foundation is also the one item I need to even out my skin tone and it makes such a difference even if I just use that. Thanks for the great tips and I’ll be checking out a couple of the products you mentioned!
