NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler Primer
I suffer from large pores that always seem to be visible under any foundation. And the fact that I LOVE highlighter doesn’t help because it only accentuates the pores. NYX Pore Filler * creates a smooth canvas on my face which prevents my foundation and concealer from sitting in my pores. It’s not drying like many other similar products seem to be and I love that it’s so affordable!
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation
Again, let’s continue with my dilated pores! Like the name Fit Me Matte + Poreless * suggests, this foundation helps to the appearance pores. I like it also because it’s very thin and liquidy so it feels like I have nothing on my face, but it’s also buildable to medium full coverage which I like more with a makeup. I use a regular flat foundation brush to apply it on my face evenly and then I blend it in with a damp Ecotools sponge ( much better than the original beauty blender on my opinion, and it’s half the price)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place Concealer
Good full coverage concealer that doesn’t crease or look dry on my under eye area. Not much more to say other than that Double Wear concealer * is my concealer because it does the job perfectly!
Lumene Nordic Nude Air-Light Compact Powder
If I’m being totally honest, I don’t really notice much of a difference between different powders. When I want to just set my foundation, I use a translucent loose powder, but on most days I don’t mind the extra coverage from a powder because my base is otherwise quite sheer usually. I like this Lumene Nordic Nude * powder because it feels light on my face, affordable, doesn’t make my face too matte, compact powder that travels with me everywhere!
Step-by-step Contour Sticks
I used to hate cream contouring because I felt like it was so much more difficult to blend it and make it look even. These contour sticks * are so creamy and easy to blend! I make a few strokes with the bronze and contour shades under my cheekbones and on my temples, blend it with a stippling brush and set it with a powder. Quick, easy & looks amazing! Must try for everyone my opinion!
Max Factor Creme Bronzer shade Bronze
this * Such a beautiful color and blends so perfectly! I was a little scared when I first saw this bronzer because of the shimmer, but it looks so beautiful on the skin. The shimmer kind of disappears but leaves a beautiful, glow on the skin. Hello JLo Glow!
Jeffree Star Skin Frost shade Peach Goddess
I’ve been hesitated to try any products from Jeffree because I don’t like the fact that he’s always involved in some drama and I don’t like everything he always on the internet. But once I tried his highlighters and liquid lipsticks I had to learn how to separate him from the brand in my head because these products are AMAZING! The Skin Frosts are so buttery and so pigmented. You don’t need much to give you perfectly highlighter cheekbones but if you’re all about that disco ball kind of look, just spray some setting spray on your brush before applying it on your face and OMG DO YOU HAVE YOURSELF SOME GLOWING CHEEKS! Peach Goddess is beautiful rose gold kind of shade and is my .
Elizabeth Arden Gelato Collection Gel Blush shade Coral Daze
If I had to choose between cream and powder blushes, I would definitely choose cream blushes. They apply so beautifully and makes the blush look so natural and gives your face that healthy glow. Elizabeth Arden’s Gelato Collection Gel Blush * is creamy (or gelly?) and blends easily. The finish is kind of transparent, not too pigmented but gives that beautiful flush of color. I prefer coral and peach colors on my cheeks because I feel like it makes me look healthy and glowing, that’s why my shade is Coral Daze
Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Pencil shade Soft Brown
Perfect dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz eyebrow pencils! Thin pencil that makes it so easy to create natural looking full brows. You can easily make thin and sharp lines under and/or on top of the brow but also create small strokes between your own eyebrow hairs. The Brow Precise * pencil applies easily and stays put for the whole day!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
It’s difficult to give mascara because I’ve noticed that what works for me, might not work for someone else. But I’ve heard so many people rave about Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and so many have said that it’s mascara. And I agree with them so I can definitely recommend this! It gives dark, full and long lashes, it doesn’t separate them too much either which I actually love! If you can’t get your hands on this one, try the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Mascara which is very very similar!
Bareminerals Primetime Eyeshadow Primer
Good basic eyeshadow primer * that I happened to try over a year ago and I keep on going back to it. It’s easy to blend whereas I sometimes feel with other ones that they dry too quickly and get quite patchy. I also love that it’s a nude color so it evens out any discoloration on my eyelids. Helps my eye makeup to last all day, doesn’t let my eyelids get greasy so my mascara doesn’t transfer to my upper lids.
NYX Professional Makeup Perfect Filter Golden Hour Eyeshadow PaletteJeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks
Perfect eyeshadow palette for day and night time! This palette * has the perfect selection of matte and shimmery eyeshadows. You can easily create subtle looks with it or make the perfect smoky eye for your night out. NYX eyeshadows are so good quality and worth every penny! Although they are very affordable so I’d say they are actually super cheap!
Like I mentioned earlier, I had tried to stay away from Jeffree Star’s products but once I tried his Skin Frost highlighters and these Velour Liquid
I had to give in. These are hands down the best lipsticks I have ever used! Long-lasting (FOR REAL!) I can eat and drink all night without it getting everywhere on my face or wearing off. I haven’t been a big fan of lipstick before because I forget that I have it on, eat and drink like normally, forget to touch up or check my face regularly so I always had people telling me that I didn’t have lipstick on my lips anymore but actually on my CHEEK! Because of these I’ve started to use lipsticks more often. The wide range of colors is so unique and has something for every occasion.
Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint shade 110 Never Bare
On a normal day when I don’t feel like being creative with my makeup, and I just want something quick and easy, I always reach for either a peach or nude lipgloss. I’ve really loved these Intense Lip Paints by Maybelline because they don’t feel sticky on the lips, the color pay off is amazing and I just love this shade ‘Never Bare’
