I thought it would be fun to start a new monthly feature all about BEAUTY products! Fashion and styling is my first love, but I also love talking makeup, hair products, and beauty secrets too. I hope to use this monthly feature to share products that are old favorites and new loves. I thought for my first feature, I would share some of my everyday makeup essentials. I have used the Bare Minerals system for years!!! I can’t even tell you how long. I have never been big on wearing liquid foundations for everyday wear, so I wanted a powder that also provided good coverage. I start by applying a daily moisturizer to my face, and concealer for any trouble spots or blemishes. Then, I apply a layer of the Matte Foundation. I always get the SPF version to add a little sun protection. I follow up with just a touch of the Warmth color. Be careful on this one, a little goes a long way!! I finish up my foundation coverage with a light dusting of the mineral veil which just kind of gives a nice finishing look.
After that it is on to eyes. Eye makeup is probably one of my favorite things. I remember when I was young, my dad gave me an eyeshadow box with like 100 colors for Christmas. Thirteenish-year old me was in heaven!!! For my everyday eye makeup, I keep things a little simple. I stick with a neutral cream color for under my eyebrow, and this shimmery tan color for on my eyelid. For my lower lash line, I use this Covergirl liner in gray. I think the gray helps the eye pop without the intensity of lining my whole eye in a dark black color. I do also have it in black to transition my eyes to a night look, plus for touchups of my upper lash line. I used to love liquid eye liner until my Sephora salesperson introduced me to the Jet Set eye liner. This is another product I have been using for years!! You do have to use a brush to apply, and my favorite is the pointed liner by Sephora. This eye liner is a thick gel that goes on smooth like a liquid liner, but you have a little more flexibility than liquid if you make a mistake and no drying time. The color lasts all day on my eye, unlike a pencil which can fade a bit throughout the day. This small container lasts me for what feels like forever or at least about 4 months. I only apply it to my upper lash line. I finish up my eyes with waterproof mascara in a dark black color. I started wearing this Covergirl mascara in college when I was usually broke from shopping too much. I still love it, and have never really looked into a fancier mascara.
I hope you enjoy this new monthly beauty feature! If you have any other questions regarding any of these products, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
