i use Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser, then I hide any red spots with YSL Green Concealer, then Maybelline Stay Fit! Dewy + Smooth foundation in porcelain, then NXY Above & Beyond Full Coverage concealer, I bake my face with Covergirl translucent loose powder, then contour with NYC Color Wheel bronzer, I used Essence blush (I believe in the color “Adorable”) on my upper cheek/under my eyes kind of as a “transition” shade for all of the colors, I highlighted using Wet N Wild’s Illuminating palette, all of the eyeshadows I used were from a Simply Spoiled eyeshadow palette which I believe is discontinued. I checked their website the other day and couldn’t find it. Unfortunately, that’s the most important part of the makeup look but there’s no name on the palette and no name for each color either :-( I blended 90% of the eyeshadows with my fingers, which actually was a lot easier than any brushes. Next I curled my lashes and put on two mascaras: Benefits Roller Lash & Pur Cosmetics Volume Vixen. And finally, the last thing I used was Cailyn Cosmetics Funky Orange Trio liquid lipsticks, I used the two colors Modernist & Egoist!!

A few products I’ve picked up over the past few weeks.

Starting from the left:

  • NYX Lip Pencil in “Hot Red”
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Monte Carlo”
  • NYX Super Skinny Marker in “Carbon Black” (Perfect for winged liner! Love this stuff!)
  • NYX “More To Love” Volume, Length, and Curl Mascara
  • NYX Butter Lipstick in “Razzle Fiesta”
  • Wet N’ Wild Matte Lipsticks in the shades “Mocha-licious” and “Think Pink” (Been obsessed with matte lipsticks lately!)
  • Revlon Sun Candy nail polish duos in “Sun Shower” (a minty blue/green, basically tiffany blue) and “Pink Dawn” (a pretty pastel baby pink)
  • Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
  • Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation Stick (recommended to me by a follower of mine. Whoever you are, thank you! I love this stuff!)

So as I promised here is my usual foundation & concealer routine! I’m including all products I use on my face when I do my makeup posts (because honestly it’s all about the eye makeup to me lol) like blush, bronzer, and highlight. I know I use a lot of products lol - including three primers! But I’m just not a simple girl when it comes to makeup tbh.

I can tell you this is going to be hella long so I’m going to put a read more but for mobile users lmao I’m so sorry!
