Hey guys! I’ve received a lot of questions from my readers over the years so I thought I would start a new series on my blog where I share a new tip with you guys on Tuesdays (or as I like to call it #tiptuesday)! It will range from beauty tips to travel and everything in between. And where better to start than with one of the topics I get asked about the most… makeup!
Foundation & Powders:
I have a couple of makeup products that are an absolute must-have for me, and one of those include this Jane Iredale pressed powder (I usually wear warm sienna in the winter and golden glow in the summer). This powder is a little on the pricey side, but it’s definitely worth it. It has such a natural finish and I can always find a shade that perfectly matches my skin tone. Since I have oily skin, I will use primer (favorites include Stila and Jane Iredale) and liquid foundation (favorite is Make Up For Ever and my favorite drugstore brand is L’Oreal) to help set in the powder. I then finish with M.A.C’s blotting powder or Aveda translucent powder to reduce shine throughout the day.
Blush & Bronzers:
I’ve pretty consistently stuck with the same eyebrow powder and eyeshadow for the last few years. I actually this eyeshadow (in Made for Mocha) for my eyebrows and use a blend of the Naked Basics palette with NARS eyeshadow (in Night Breed). I love the NARS eyeshadow because I’ve found it gets the darkest black out of any black eyeshadow I’ve tried.
Last but not least are some of my favorite make-up and skincare tools. To help keep my skin clean and refreshed, I use my Clarisonic every night as well as the Lancome make-up remover to help gently remove my eye makeup. Neutrogena makeup remover wipes are also great to keep by your bedside for the nights you’re feeling too lazy to wash your face, or perfect for when you’re traveling.
