I’m not too huge of a makeup person, generally I’ve used the same products for a while and don’t really change it up too much. Ever since I was around 17 or 18 I used Bare Escentuals foundation, because liquid foundations always made me break out and it just didn’t work for my oily skin. I’ve tried a few different foundations in those years, not because the BE doesn’t work well..it’s pretty good, but it is soooo messy! So when it came time to find some wedding makeup, I knew I needed to amp up my makeup bag a bit. A friend of mine suggested Make Up For Ever, so I went down to Sephora and asked about it. I bought their foundation as well as their primer. Generally I’m not a big fan of spending a ton of money on makeup either (I love you Sephora, but my bank account does not!). But, I I have also purchased a few other things that I am currently in love with.
So here is my current makeup regimen, and I am loving it!
BE Mineral Veil. Used after foundation application, I’ve always used this and I love it.
Plixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Cocoa. I am SO glad I picked up this eyeliner, it’s AMAZING. As the name suggests, it’s silky and goes on easily & is also easy to fix if you mess up – AND it lasts all day. My normal cheap eyeliner tends to melt off towards the end of the day. Plixi is sold at Target, and I was just looking for something different (I’ve always used black pencil eyeliner for my everyday look), so I am glad I tried this beauty.
Benefit Coralista blush. Although I did purchase this as part of my wedding makeup, I’m using it every day and I think the color is perfect for a lot of skin tones.
