So, this past weekend I finally got around to cleaning out my makeup drawer. Holy makeup hoarder you guys, I am way too embarrassed to show you what a mess it truly was! But, point being, this enabled me to finally get around to showing you exactly what I wear on a daily basis. I may switch up a lip color or an eyeshadow every once in a while, but these are my tried and true favorites, and they are what you will catch me wearing 98% of time ;)
(Note - this post is not sponsored in any way, I obviously just love Clinique and BareMinerals)
Right now is the perfect time to grab Clinique being that they have their bonus going on! It's such a good one this time around. It also includes my favorite mascara and face wash!
Foundation and Concealer
I have tried so many foundations and concealers over the years, and these are the two I come back to every time! The moisture surge compact is very light and hydrating, and I feel like it keeps my powder on all day long. It doesn't have that greasy feeling like I find in most liquid foundations. And I still love the original BareMinerals powder the best, it provides great coverage without looking too thick, and the kabuki brush is amazing for applying this powder.
(And yes y'all I am already burning my favorite holiday candle, I couldn't help myself ha)
Blush and Bronzer
If you told me I could only leave the house with one thing on my face, I would pick my blush and bronzer every time! I just feel so much more alive and look much more awake with blush on ;) These two blushes are by far my favorite and I mix them together everyday. First, I apply the Clinique blush, then I swipe over the Jane Iredale for the perfect color and light shimmer. I use the two darker bronzers more in the summer, but all year long, I use the middle one on the center of my nose and under my eyes.
Eye Liner (12) // Lid Smoothie (Bit o' Honey)// Shadow (strawberry fudge) // Mascara one // Mascara two // Brow pencil (soft brunette)
The Giorgio Armani eye liner is the best I have ever used, it goes on so smooth and stays all day. I don't always put on eyeshadow, but I never leave with my lid smoothie. And as far as mascaras go, I like to apply the bareMinerals one first and the high impact over that. During the day I will usually only use one or the other, but at night I like to apply both for a more dramatic look.
It's true I LOVE lipstick! On most days I toss on my nude or pink colors. But at night I love a bold red look, especially with the holidays around the corner! I highly highly recommend this gloss set, as it is filled with 6 gorgeous colors for you try!
Pinks- Lipstick one (pink in devotion) // Liner One (crushed berry) // Lipstick Two (never say never) // Liner two (perfect pink) // Gloss (hot shot)
And even though this has nothing to do with makeup, I have to share with you guys this sweater I wore yesterday! You will not believe the quality for $26, and size down as it runs big!
