I posted on my stories this week to see what you guys want to see on my blog this week! You guys voted and it was a tie between valentines outfit inspo and what's in my makeup bag. Today will be makeup and next week will be valentines related!
Let's get into it! I get questions about what type of makeup I use so today I'm spilling the tea!
Starting in the order that I use it!
PREP AND FOUNDATION
Dime Beauty Eyelash boost serum: I apply this every morning 10-15 minutes before applying makeup.
Tula face filter (Primer): the perfect prep before makeup to moisture and blur imperfections with a tint to make you look bronze.
Beauty Blender (makeup sponge): I've tried them all and this is just as good as the high end beauty blenders. plus you can get a pack of 6 for under $12 on Amazon.
Estee Lauder double wear foundation (base): full coverage foundation and a huge plus is that a little goes a long way. I use shade 1W2 sand. **I only use this for content shoot days, date nights, and special events since it's my high end foundation out of the two!
Tarte shape tape matte foundation (base): medium to full coverage foundation. I usually use 6-7 dots to cover my entire face. I use shade fair sand.**this is more of an everyday foundation that I use more regularly if I'm just running to the grocery store or just want to put the bare minimum of makeup on.
L'oreal infallible full wear concealer (corrector): swear this stuff is a dupe of the tarte shape tape concealer, but it's less than half the price. I apply this under my eyes, cupid's bow, and over any small blemishes I want to cover a little more. I use shade 360 cashmere.
EYEBROWS, CHEEKS, AND EYES
Maybelline total temptatin eyebrow pencil: Talk about a dupe! This is just as good or even better than the anastasia brow wiz. It's also half the price! I use the shade soft brown.
Physicians formula butter bronzer: I've tried at least 4 different bronzers and every time I come back to this one! It's $12 and a great drugstore bronzer! It gives you a beachy natural glow! I use shade pf10568 sunkissed bronzer.
Real techniques (contour brush): I use this brush to apply bronzer and highlighter. I know definitely not what it's made for, but this is what I have found that I like to use plus for both so killing two birds with one brush!
ColourPop nude mood eyeshadow pallet: the perfect nudes. I love the browns/neutrals for an easy upscale eye pop plus this is very affordable to have on hand and small which is great for traveling! ** my most used colors are bluffin, bare to wear and wink wink.
Eyelash curler: If you are like me then your eyelashes grow straight out and not up! I like to use this eyelash curler to curl my lashes to give them a longer appearance which then brightens the eyes! I use this every time before I apply mascara.
Lash paradise mascara: insane quality mascara. I've been using this for a few years and I always love it more compared to high end mascara! It's affordable and does the job well. My lashes look instantly longer after applying it! I use the shade blackest black.
Tarte maneater mascara: my favorite high end mascara. I like that the wand is thicker to thicken my lashes after applying the lash paradise. It's not necessary, but I prefer to use 2 mascara's over one.
I like my lip application super easy and the same everyday
NYX lip pencil: This pencil is perfect to outline my lips before applying lipstick.I use shade natural. *Pro tip: overline your lips a little bit to make them appear bigger than they really are.
Maybelline lipstick: so creamy and easily applied. I love this light pink/nude lip color because it's close to the color of my lips already and adds the slightest color. I use the shade baddest beige. I've seen this lipstick on multiple people and it looks good on everyone!
NYX butter gloss: under $5 and again a perfect light nude. It matches the baddest beige lipstick almost perfectly. I use the shade fortune cookie. When I apply it, I just apply the gloss to the center of my lips to give it a glossy finish.
There ya have it! Now you know what's in my makeup bag + what I use everyday!
