Last week I told you everything about my holy grail products when it comes to skincare. So in addiction today I want to share with you some of my most favorite makeup items. Most of the days I don’t have the time to spend more than twenty minutes in the bathroom. With one eye open and one eye still closed I need some products I can truly trust in and which repaint the vestiges of the past – literally!
A good base is all you need to work with and for building up a flawless looking complexion. The Rituals Precious Ivory makeup is my newest addiction to my makeup collection and has everything I could ask for: It’s lightweight but also buildable for those days you’re looking for a higher coverage, it gives you that healthy glowing skin tone without being shiny and it lasts at least until the evening.
After that I use the Maybelline Fit Me concealer for a higher coverage and against redness or a few spots. The concealer blends evenly with the makeup base without looking patchy. To set everything in place I’m a huge fan of the Bare Minerals Powder Duo which offers you both options: a translucent powder for your skin and a glowing powder to highlight your cheekbones.
To conture my face I use the Sleek Highlighting palette. It comes with a bronzing powder and three highlighter shades which are perfect for a natural glow. After that, for a nice finish and a fresh looking complexion I use my all time favorite blush by Astor. I’m not sure if it’s still on stock, maybe you have to browse the drugstores, but for me it’s the ultimate decent red-orangey tone.
The eyebrow game is on! For my brows and eyes I don’t go crazy when it’s still bright and early outside. I like to play with different products for special occasions, but in the mornings my makeup has to be easy, functional and just does its job. So when there is no time at all at least I can rely on Maybelline’s Brow Drama. It takes you only a few seconds for perfect looking brows and it comes in this handy packaging. For mascara I use Benefit’s They’re Real and I guess it’s not a secret any longer that this mascara is hot on the market. It’s also one of my holy grail products – two layers and you’re ready to roll, looking wide awake.
Last but not least I have to mention two of my favorite MAC products which changed my whole makeup game. By using the MAC Select Cover-Up concealer there is no chance for dark under-eye circles. You only need the tiniest bit to highlight your skin, it’s totally amazing. In summary it can be said that there is no situation in life where you’re not feeling better with a little bit of lipstick on your face. MAC Velvet Teddy is a pretty, decent everyday nude tone for all occasions you can trust in. I’m not the biggest lipstick person but I love me a good nude shade on my lips and Velvet Teddy is a classic.
So here are a few items of my makeup bag I ride with on a daily basis. I would love to hear about your holy grail products and what you think about this listing of everyday products. Have a great day and lots of love, L
