So, this past weekend I finally got around to cleaning out my makeup drawer. Holy makeup hoarder you guys, I am way too embarrassed to show you what a mess it truly was! But, point being, this enabled me to finally get around to showing you exactly what I wear on a daily basis. I may switch up a lip color or an eyeshadow every once in a while, but these are my tried and true favorites, and they are what you will catch me wearing 98% of time 😉
(Note – this post is not sponsored in any way, I obviously just love Clinique and BareMinerals)
Right now is the perfect time to grab Clinique
being that they have their bonus going on! It’s such a good one this time around. It also includes my favorite mascara and face wash!
Foundation and Concealer
I have tried so many foundations and concealers over the years, and these are the two I come back to every time! The moisture surge compact is very light and hydrating, and I feel like it keeps my powder on all day long. It doesn’t have that greasy feeling like I find in most liquid foundations. And I still love the original BareMinerals powder the best, it provides great coverage without looking too thick, and the kabuki brush is amazing for applying this powder.
Blush and Bronzer
If you told me I could only leave the house with one thing on my face, I would pick my blush and bronzer every time! I just feel so much more alive and look much more awake with blush on 😉 These two blushes are by far my favorite and I mix them together everyday. First, I apply the Clinique blush, then I swipe over the Jane Iredale for the perfect color and light shimmer. I use the two darker bronzers more in the summer, but all year long, I use the middle one on the center of my nose and under my eyes.
The Giorgio Armani eye liner is the best I have ever used, it goes on so smooth and stays all day. I don’t always put on eyeshadow, but I never leave with my lid smoothie. And as far as mascaras go, I like to apply the bareMinerals one first and the high impact over that. During the day I will usually only use one or the other, but at night I like to apply both for a more dramatic look.
It’s true I LOVE lipstick! On most days I toss on my nude or pink colors. But at night I love a bold red look, especially with the holidays around the corner! I highly highly recommend this gloss set
, as it is filled with 6 gorgeous colors for you try!
And even though this has nothing to do with makeup, I have to share with you guys this sweater
I wore yesterday! You will not believe the quality for $26, and size down as it runs big!
