Makeup has always been a big part of my life, especially because it’s one of the most beautiful memories that I have from my grandmother. She wouldn’t leave her room without putting her makeup on, she always wore a bold red lipstick and short perfect hair. She was a stunning and imposing woman, her name was Violet.
During the past 4 years I have used at least 5 different brands looking for one that gives me a decent coverage without making my skin break out. I also have lost my makeup bag about the same number of times. Yes I have lost all my makeup over 3 times, it’s painful but I’ve learned my lesson. My makeup bag stays at home safe, I only carry lipsticks in my purse.
The only brand I knew was MAC, which still represents a good portion of my lipsticks. Now you have too many amazing products to choose from a wide variety of brands. I was lucky enough to find the perfect products for my skin because I’m too old for pimples (jk I still get one or two).
I give you my makeup selection:
Concealer – bareMinerals BARES SKIN – This product is full coverage and one of the reasons that I really like this is because you only need a small amount. I suggest you apply the product on your face and then blend with your brush or beauty blender.
Foundation – URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN – This is a weightless ultra-definition liquid foundation. This product can be used for a light to a full coverage. Use thin layers to get the coverage of your preference.
Powder – MAKE UP FOR EVER PRO FINISH – I bought this powder first and then decided to buy the concealer and the foundation. I was looking for a product that would give me a light to medium overage without having to use foundation. I definitely recommend this powder for a soft and even look.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit – Well, I don’t think I need to elaborate much since this product is one of the best contour kits out there. I chose the powder version because I like always go for a natural look. If you really don’t have time to sit and spend an hour doing your makeup I strongly suggest you use this version. I have found many uses for this contour kit besides contouring, it’s my basic eye shadow palette and I also use it to fill in my eyebrows. It’s a good investment overall.
Mascara – Too Faced BETTER THAN SEX – This is a game changer. I like every other girl have used Maybelline, Cover Girl, MAC you name it but this mascara is something else. This product lets you have the thickness that you are looking for without the not so pretty chunks. It’s long-lasting and most importantly easy to take off. You need this in your life.
