In the past month or so, I’ve really been narrowing down my makeup routine. I know exactly what I need, what I can skip if I’m running late on time, and what products I’ll repurchase if I run out. I’ve also stopped experimenting as much with new products, which has let me invest in more expensive products. Instead of trying 4 new drugstore concealers, I’ll stick with the one concealer that I know I like, and just buy it once every 7 months or so, when it runs out. Is this what being an adult means? Investing in products you know you like?
Anyway here are the products that I use everyday!
Undereye Concealer – I’m kind of cheating here, because I actually use two under eye concealers (yup my eye bags are that bad). First I use a color corrector, and then I use a brightener. My favorites are Erase Paste by Benefit, and the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle.
Stila Stay all day. I wear winged eyeliner every day, and I tried not to love this eyeliner. I really did try. It’s 26$ butI love it so much. I used to use the Maybelline Stiletto, which was $10 and would last me 6 months. 6 friggen months! But the Stila Stay all day is just soooo easy. It’s not waterproof, and it doesn’t really last all day, but it’s enough for me.
Gimme Brow – Over the past few months, I’ve had some really tough brow phases. I’ve been filling them in with varying levels of boldness and I really needed to get my brows down to an easy routine. Gimme brow is an easy way to just make them look a bit filled in, without spending too much time on them.
Foundation Sponge – I absolutely hate applying foundation with anything other than but a foundation sponge. It makes application so much smoother, so much cleaner, and so much quicker. It makes skin look great, especially compared to application with my hands or a brush.
