In my beauty bag I only carry the essentials I need for my makeup routine. I see no point in getting things that I’ll never use so I only purchase items I know I will use. I have included pictures of the products I use regularly.
The first thing that I find important is a face moisturizer. I apply a nice facial moisturizer after I wash my face in the morning to prevent dryness.
Another thing that’s important is a lip moisturizer. I use this with a face lotion to prevent flakiness and peeling on my lips.
The first thing I use when applying makeup is a concealer. I make sure that the concealer is the same shade as my foundation so I don’t have any blotches on my face. I dab a bit of concealer on any blemishes on my face and I use it on my dark circles.
After concealer, I use foundation. I dab a sheer coat all around my face and on my neck and then I blend it. I make sure that it’s not darker than my natural skin tone.
I use primer after. I put a line of it on my nose, cheekbones, and in between my eyebrows.
After primer I put a little bit of blush under the primer on my cheekbones.
I use bronzer on my cheeks, nose, and on the outer parts of my forehead and I contour with the primer and blush I previously used.
I use an eyebrow pencil to outline and shape my eyebrows and then I fill them in. My favorite eyebrow pencil also comes with a gel that I put on my eyebrows after I use the pencil. This keeps my eyebrows from loosing their shape.
I normally use natural looking shades of brown on my eyelids. I use lighter shades on the inner part of my lids then as I get further out, I use darker shades.
I use eyeliner after the shadow. I usually go with the winged look.
After all that, I use my favorite mascaras! I use one for length, one for volume, and one to get rid of clumps.
I use a lip liner to outline my lips. I make sure that whatever liner I use matches the lip color I plan on wearing.
Last, lip color. I have a variety of natural looking colors that are in between light pink and nude. I also have more dramatic colors like a vibrant red, a light purple, a dark purple, a bright pink, and matte black.
