So last week I showed you my skin care routine and this week is time for my makeup. I decided to show you the products that aren’t necessarily in my project pan because you know what they are already. Se here are the products I use everyday.
1 – Quem disse berenice (Brazilian brand) Powder foundation: This powder foundation isn’t great and it’s a bit light for me. It was kept away in a drawer but a couple months ago I decided to take it out and use it paired with my MAC powder foundation, which is too yellow for me, so it’s pretty much a perfect pair.
2 – Milani XL Bronzer: It’s a bit orange, but it’s alright.
3 – Laura Geller Baked French Vanilla Highlighter: I don’t necessarily use highlighter everyday or this one specifically, but this one is very pretty and subtle.
4 – MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation: I really love this powder foundation as I have combination skin and I don’t need that much cover, so it’s perfect. This one is in the shade C4, but it’s too yellow for me. When I’m done with it, I’ll buy it again in the shade NC30 or something like that.
5 – Bare Minerals Ready Spf 15 Touch up veil in Translucent: I use it as a finishing powder as it makes my skin feel very smooth, and the added spf isn’t bad. The downside to it is that it makes your skin ghostly if you take flash photography using it.
6 – L’oreal True Match Crayon Concealer: It’s pretty good, and the pencil form is very handy. It’s a bit too dark for my skin, but when I use it on top of my NYX green concealer, it’s a perfect match.
7 – Quem disse berenice highlighter: This is a pretty subtle highlighter, great for everyday. I don’t use it everyday because I feel like my NARS Orgasm blush gives that highlighter look as well as blush, but still I’m almost done with this product.
8 – MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC20: I use it for spots on my face, it’s pretty good.
9 – NYX Concealer in a jar in Green: I hate the smell of it, but it works really well paired with regular colored concealer. I probably wouldn’t repurchase, though.
10 – Bare Minerals Multi tasking Spf 20 concealer in Summer Bisque: Works really well to set my concealer.
11 – ELF eyebrow kit in Medium: I absolutely LOVE this eyebrow kit. I mostly use the creamy part, and lightly use the powder side. I just wish I knew how great of a match it would be and how much I would love it when I bought it because we don’t have ELF here in Brazil, sadly.
12 – MAC Eye Kohl in Fascinating: Just a matte white eyeliner that I use on my waterline to open up my eyes. It could be creamier but it’s ok.
13 – ELF Eyelash primer: This is another ELF product I wish I knew how much I would love when I bought it. At first I thought the formula was too dry but it’s just awesome.
14 – Covergirl Clump crusher: I use it on top of my Maybelline mascara, and it’s awesome. It’s really good by itself as well, gives off great length.
15 – Maybelline Great Lash lots of lashes: It’s a good mascara, it took me a while to get used to the tiny wand, though. I wouldn’t repurchase.
16 – MAC Blanc Type eyeshadow: It’s a matte shadow that I use as a brow highlighter but since it’s cool toned, it doesn’t look too great on my very warm skin. I’m trying to use it up.
17 – MAC Paint pot in Painterly: Same as Blanc Type, it’s just too pink for me. It does work, but I already have an unopened Soft Ochre in my stash for when I’m done with Painterly.
18 – Bobbi Brown Long wear gel eyeliner in Black Ink: When I read reviews of this product, most people said it was better than MAC’s fluidline but it’s not. My fluidline was much easier to use, much creamier, had better pigmentation and lasted much longer. Once I spent the whole day at the beach then I went in the pool and my fluidline was literally intact on my eyes. So I just want to be done with Bobbi Brown’s so I can go back to MAC’s.
19 – ELF Makeup Mist and Set: It’s ok but it’s no Fix Plus by MAC. Nothing much to say about it.
20 – Panvel eyelash curler: Very cheap brazilian drugstore brand eyelash curler. It’s awesome, it cost around 6 to 8 reais, which means around 2 – 3 US dollars.
Do you use any of these products? What are your everyday essentials?
