Beauty: Everyday Makeup


I keep my makeup very minimal…actually I just can’t be bothered to take a long time to do my makeup. I’m usually up at 6am to be at work at 7am so I try and use as less as possible makeup to make me look like a human and not a zombie.

I NEVER use foundation…I actually don’t even own any. Last few times I’ve bought foundation they either oxidized on my face or they would just make my patches of dry skin more noticeable. I don’t really have lots of redness or blemishes. I’ve been VERY lucky! When I was a teenager I had VERY oily skin and terrible acne.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – Not the HUGEST fan of this concealer…it tends to crease and look “cakey” after a few hours of wearing but during the summer I ended up getting a stye in my eye and threw out ALL my concealers. It seems like they changed the formula from the first time it came out…It seems to cover more. It does it’s job and makes me look a bit more awake…I’ll give it that.

NYX Le Frou Frou Mascara – I haven’t heard anyone talk about this mascara so I picked it up to give it a try. My CVS finally got a little NYX section and since I got a wonderful stye from my apartment swimming pool and had to trash my mascara, I decided to try it. It works very well on lengthening your lashes which I like. I’m not REALLY fan of volumizing mascara.

NYX Eyebrow Pencil – I actually really love this eyebrow pencil. I’ve tried a few other pencils and they were either too creamy or the brown had a redish tint to it. I like that the pencil isn’t TOO pigmented so it creates light strokes so you can’t OVER define your eyebrows.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm “Elusive” – Absolutely love these matte balms. I have no idea why I don’t own more. I tend to stick with lip colors in the fall that are light pink.

Milani Lipstick “Nude Creme” – LOVE LOVE LOVE this lipstick! It’s my most worn lipstick. It’s a pinky/mauve/nude color. I’m terrible at describing things btw!
