I wouldn't consider myself as a makeup junkie but who knows what's going to happen in the next year, right?
For the last month or so, the things you see up there are the things I put on my face. It seems like a lot to me, but hey, I'm just a girl that's experimenting with makeup (yes, I made plenty of mistakes in the past). I like to keep my face relatively simple, no smokey eyes whatsoever. And as you can see, I'm a drugstore girl. I'd love to try some higher end stuff, but I haven't decide what I want to try yet.
I've bought a few foundations before and most of them are the wrong undertone, when I see the product in the bottle it didn't seem like a wrong undertone but when I put the product on my face it was too pink. I've been using the same foundation that I brought from Bali (the only one with the right undertone for me) and it was running really low and I needed a new one ASAP. I tried out some BB cream that I like but it breaks me out so I had to stop using it. So I did some research and found Revlon Nearly Naked. So far it has been doing a great job, this is a relatively new product for me. It's not too heavy but give a bit of coverage, which what I was aiming for.
Next up is concealer. I used to use all-in-one concealer from The Body Shop and ran out of it. I was debating of should I get the same one or try something new, of course I went with trying something new. I've read and watched so many great review about Maybelline Fit Me concealer so I gave it a shot. I personally think it's meh — I don't hate it and I don't love it either. I have awful blue-purple circles under my eyes and this concealer doesn't cover it but it covers my blemishes like magic. I'm still in the hunt for new concealer, let me know if you have any recommendations.
I use the Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trio in Sweet or Clair Light. I'm pretty happy with it. I like how compact it is. Bronzer, highlighter, and blush in one. I never really thought of buying Sephora's own brand before, but I'm glad I bought this. The colors are very subtle and I'm really pleased with it.
For my brows, I just filled it in with the grey and brown eyeshadow in the middle of Sephora's Natural Instinct palette (which they don't have anymore) and then I set it with some disgusting looking MAC brow set that used to be clear (oops). I use some of the eyeshadow for my eyes as well. The shadows are a little bit chalky but I can handle it. Usually I use Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze (which I love) underneath the shadows. I have super oily eyelids and this thing stays on all day. It's not matte, but I don't mind. You can build it up for more intense look, but I like to keep it on the simple side. For my lashes, I use Maybelline's (wow, can you tell I love Maybeline?) Rocket Volum' Express waterproof mascara. I like the volume it gives to my lashes, but the brush is huge and I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Wow, that's a long one. Hope I didn't hurt your eyes..
What's your favorite beauty/makeup product? Or do you have any recommendations for me?
