I am a little late getting on the make-up train. Growing up, wearing make-up was not an option in our household. Since I am in the beauty industry, I find myself wearing make-up more frequently and by frequently, I mean 3-4 days a week. I have the most basic make-up routine and it only takes about 15 minutes. Within the last few years I’ve been experimenting with make-up and I found a few staple products. One thing about me is when I like something, I typically with not deviate from that product. With that being said, the products that are in my make-up rotation are listed below.
Dior Show delivers perfectly plush, glam lashes. The length and volume I receive from this mascara is like no other. I've tried several brands of mascara, but this is hands down one of my go-tos.
MAC Swiss Chocolate is a great transition color eye shadow. It will work well for any season or outfit. I apply this shadow by its self or with multiple color for a seamless blend.
MAC Cork is my favorite lip liner. I am able to wear it by its self or layer it with other more neutral lippies. This lip pencil glides on smooth, is very moisturizing and last throughout the day.
Make Up For Ever HD matches my complexion perfectly. This is my holy grail foundation! I love the consistency, it photos well, it does not cake up and I don’t have to use much. I am medium complexion with red undertones. I have always had issues finding a foundation that's the right shade for me. This is hands down, the best foundation I've come across.
Salon Perfect eyebrow kit is an all inclusive. This compact includes a mirror with three powders to custom blend together and create individual shades (I also use as eyeshadow). It has a highlighter to illuminate the brow bone and a grooming pencil that helps set the eyebrows for a look that will last throughout the day.
NYX brow pencil is very easy to use, looks super natural has a nice buttery texture making it easy to glide across the skin. I like the precision I get with this brow pencil. The pencil has a spoolie at the opposite end to easily diffuse any harsh shading while creating a flawless and natural blend.
MAC Instigator is a beautiful lipstick color for any season. I typically gravitate towards a deeper colors during the Fall/Winter seasons. I like the versatility of this lippie. It can be worn during the day or at night and dressed up or casual.
