Check out what’s on my face today. It is written in the exact order I applied onto my face.
Yes, I use two primers! No, my foundation doesn’t slide all over my face. I have very dry skin so it is important that my skin is highly protected underneath so that my foundation doesn’t settle in and create creases.
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
I usually put this onto my cheeks and undereye area. It is very creamy and lightweight. You literally don’t even feel like you are putting anything on. You can buy at Ulta for $6.99 but I believe I got mine at Rite Aid for cheaper.
Ulta Fabulous Face Foundation Primer
This literally helps foundation stay locked in place. Although I do apply it all over my face, I make sure I deeply pat into my undereye area since I have a noticeable fine line. Obviously this can be bought at Ulta for $12.50. If you purchase online and add 2 more items to your cart, you get one free.
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
Color: New Guinea
This is my holy grail foundation. I put on more of a medium coverage today. I would repurchase this as many times as needed regardless of the price. With a satin glowy finish, this looks exactly like my skin. It applies so smoothly and makes my skin so radiant. It is a high end product priced at $45 so I would make sure that you get your appropiate color before purchasing. The lady at my local mall was very helpful with choosing my correct color.
It Cosmetics Airbrush Blurring Foundation Brush #101
This is also a high priced item for a brush. It is $24 but well worth it. It feels steady in the hand and gives the fondation a more airy realistic look.
Catrice Glamour Doll Volume Waterproof Mascara in Black 010
I always go for drugstore mascaras since they basically do the same job as a Too Faced product would. I use this one for my bottom lashes. It seperates and lengthens. Most importantly, it doesn’t smudge. I like to use a waterproof mascara for my bottom lashes because my eyes tend to water more now in the summer. It’s currently on sale at Ulta for $5.24 so I would get my hands on that as soon as possible.
L’oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara
I did a review on it almost a year ago and I continue to use it so that shows how consistent this product is.
Nyx Control Freak Eye Brow Gel
I do not fill my brows but I do like to put gel on my brows to bring the color out from the foundation almost overlaying. I don’t fill my brows because I prefer just waxing at the salon and then using the gel to brighten and straighten.
Carli Bybel Palette
Everything in the palette is so pigmented and creamy. I sometimes use the eyeshadows as highlighters. Thats how good this is. It is only $14.50 which was the same price on BH cosmetics website and now it is in Ulta stores.
Lips & Setting Spray
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp
They are only $6 and worth the buy. It does feel like it doesn’t come with much inside but the color is amazing and perfect for a Sunday summer.
Nyx Dewy Setting Spray
To end it all, set it! For less than $10, it keeps your face locked it in. I have a habit of touching my face a lot forgetting that I’m wearing makeup, so locking it in place keeps me safe.
