Sidney's Everyday Makeup Must Haves
I have only been in the beauty world for about two years, and have been building my collection pretty heavily! I have all of this makeup but I tend to only reach for certain products almost every day. These are my "cult favorites", or as I like to think of my every day products.
My favorite mascara had to be the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara!! It is my absolute favorite full volume mascara that lasts!!
I have recently gotten into moisturizing my face before I put on my foundation. This moisturizer is called the "Ultra Repair Cream" by First Aid Beauty. When I first started using this product I was super worried that it would break me out (I have super sensitive skin), but it didn't!! It gives the much needed hydration to my skin that is lost when I put on my makeup.
I prefer a VERY matte face. The foundation that I wear everyday is the L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation! This foundation is my life. I am pretty pale so I wear the shade Classic Ivory 101!! My only down fall is that it doesn't have sunscreen in it. Before applying my foundation I apply a small amount of Benefits Porefessional Primer to mattify and fill in my pores!
I blend both my concealer and my foundation in with my black beauty blender and lightly set my face with Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray.
When I started out in makeup, I thought doing my eyebrows was pointless. Now it's something I cannot leave the house without doing! My go-to eyebrow products that I go for is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the shade Blonde. A cheaper eyebrow product that I love is the NYX Eyebrow Powder Pencil in the shade Blonde as well. This one is very creamy and pigmented.
Concealer is a must have product. My go-to concealer is the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer in the shade Light 9. I feel that it covers just enough to where it doesn't look cakey. (I will give a better review in a separate post) I set my concealer and face with the famous Laura Mercier Translucent Powder!! I bake my under eyes with this and it ties my entire face together!!
My last product I am gonna mention is blush and bronzer. I'm not the biggest fan of these but I use them!! My favorite blush is either the Kat Von D Shade + Light Blush in the shade Mickey + Molly, and the Too Faced Love Blush in the shade Baby Love. The Kat Von D blush is just a subtle light pink to add a dash of color to my face. The Too Faced one is more of a shimmery natural flush on the cheeks! For bronzer, I use Mac's Mineralized Skin Finish in the shade Medium!!
If y'all have any recommendations on either of these things, please let me know!! I am always into trying new products!
I am not going to do any eye, lip, or highlighter products in this post. I have so many that one is just not enough!!! Let me know if y'all love any of these products just as much as I do!!
