I'm so excited to share with you's my favourite makeup products for my everyday makeup routine! I placed the items in the order that I put them on my face, haha. I like a routine that is simple and easy (and let's be real, I'd rather sleep in an extra 5 minutes in the morning.)
It’s my favourite way to apply my concealer and foundation. I’ve always been kind of on the fence about buying the real thing since it was so expensive. I kept buying knock-offs at my local drugstore and thought that it was doing a good job. That is until I caved in and bought my very first Beauty Blender this past summer. The real Beauty Blender makes my skin and makeup feel so soft and it looks flawless. I love bouncing it on my skin! The only downfall is that the die comes out every time I use or wash it.
Shape Tape concealer
The Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer has definitely been one of my must-have staple in my makeup bag. It will stay all day on my face without creasing or melting off. I have a pretty oily t-zone, so finding a concealer that lasts all day can sometimes be a challenge. It’s full coverage without being thick. The new shade range is perfect especially since I have such pale skin. I was able to quickly find my match.
Cosmic Face Haze Finishing Powder
I simply love setting my under-eye area with this powder. After applying my concealer, I gently press the Stellar powder with my wet Beauty Blender on my under eyes. My concealer stays put all day and does not crease. I only need to apply a tiny bit which is great since there is a lot of product in the container. And, at only 36 CAD$, I must say it’s a good bargain for a product from Sephora.
FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA
Invisimatte Blotting Powder
I love this powder because it keeps my face (OILY T-ZONE OVER HERE) looking shine free throughout the day without turning orange/yellow. I use a powder brush to lightly press it all over my face, concentrating mostly on my nose, chin, and t-zone area. It leaves a flawless finish to my skin without leaving that white flashback that you always see in pictures.
Endless Summer Bronzer
This bronzer is perfect for my pale skin. I love to contour my face with it since it’s not too sparkly. I’ve been alternating between this one and the Laguna bronzer from NARS. But I must admit that I tend to gravitate more towards the Too Faced one. Plus, it’s marketed to last for at least 16 hours.
If you know anything about makeup, you have already heard about the NARS orgasm blush. It is a staple for many makeup gurus. It’s suitable for many skin colours since it’s a universally flattering shade. I love applying it to the apples of my cheeks for an uplifting look. Simply beautiful.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
I’m a highlighter fanatic. And with my pale skin, sometimes the warm tones that I love in highlights are too golden. This one, although it’s a warm gold colour, suits my skin perfectly. I love applying it to my cheekbones, on the bridge of my nose and just a bit on my chin. It completes perfectly my everyday makeup look.
Dewy Finish Setting Spray
Love this product to set my face! Works wonders! My makeup stays all day even on the busiest of days. Also, it’s available at the drugstore, which means it’s dirt-cheap.
Lift Me Up, Mascara
This mascara is perfect for an everyday look. Once again, it’s an item from the drugstore, so cheaper for the wallet. I love how it extends my lashes in a natural way. It does not clump and it’s the perfect shade of black. The brush makes the product easy to apply.
Aspyn Ovard Palette
One word: STUNNING! This is me in a palette. The colour choice is perfect. Plus you get a blush and a highlight shade!!! Aspyn Ovard definitely delivered with the making of this collaboration palette. I travel with it all the time, especially since I don’t need to bring a blush and highlight with me if I’m tight on space. The shadows are pigmented and blend well together.
