I havent done a make up post in awhile so i thought i would break down the basic essentials that every girl should have !
you need a good clean surface and with that you need to moisturize
i use vaseline cocoa butter. been using it for YEARS and have recommend it from my bf to best girl friends. its a must!
2. I like to also use an over all moisturizer . I just got this as a gift and love it havent used it in years but its a must again !
body shop body butter .
concealer or foundation .
depending on how much coverage you need either one of these will help make a difference in your skin over all look. ONE TIP * . make sure you find out exactly what colour works for your skin type. you dont not want a heavy chunky look or an orange glow.
cheap – clinique foundation
expensive – i use this one and its my secret im sharing with you ;)
A loose powder will help keep all the make up in place for a long lasting wear – no break outs , light smooth and long lasting I use sephora , i found it does all these things and more .
so now your face is prepped and primed , i like a bronzer to help give me a healthy glow,
for a drug store brand
rimmel – shimmer
Holt Renfrew – i have talked about this bronzer in a previous post.. still a top favourite for me
I also got this eye shadow primer …. i thought it was silly but WOW what a difference it makes . stays in place. makes that smokey eye look amazing long lasting and makes your eyes pop!
i have ” two faced shadow insurance” – sephora
Eye shadow i recommend getting a bigger plate so you can play around with shadows and have a dozen to choose from .
Every girls needs a good mascara if thats the only thing you put on your face.
i found that lash blast – cover girl .. surprising wears well
I used to always wear a black linner, but now i use a darker brown . i have darker eyes and my inspiration for eyes is Kim kardashian . since our eyes are similar in colour , this is a good tip for anything beauty, using other people to see what might work and what doesnt.
it keeps my eyes light and gives more focus on my eye and shadow then then rim around them .
use a tooth brush and blush gently on your lips to clean them up make them smooth .
apply a good lip balm – like burt bees, Vaseline , victoria secret , lip smackers, and this one i got from the dentist made with organic wax AMAZING.
over top i like using a light “glass” look, i recommend
Mac – lip glass in a nude colour
I hope this has helped to show you ideas about putting together your own make up bags and maybe save you a few pennys with out over spending on make up you never use!
