I get quite a few questions about my beauty routine and certain products that I use for my every day look. Here are my most FAQs about beauty and makeup!
What foundation do you use everyday?
For the longest time, I have been using Bare Minerals. I absolutely love these powders and the way they make my skin look. I am going for the more natural and relaxed makeup kind of look. This powder gives me the perfect coverage for my every day activities. I like to use the Matte collection because my skin can sometimes be a little oily. I use the color “Golden Medium” to give me that sort of sun-kissed look.
Do you use any kind of primer?
Yes! The only primer I use is for my eyelids-so my eye makeup stays on as long as possible! I really like to use the Urban Decay Eye Potion for my everyday eye makeup because it goes on smooth and really keeps my makeup on all day. I never have to reapply shadow or eyeliner which is awesome! I first tried this primer when I purchased my Naked Pallet (it came with a little sample).
What kind of eye brushes do you use?
For my eye makeup, I use 3 different kinds of brushes from Sephora. The first one is just a regular shadow brush which I use to place shadows right above my eyelashes (I have two of these). This brush has shorter, tougher hairs. After that, I will use a crease brush to color in my crease-which has soft, fluffy hairs. Lastly, I will use a big fluffy brush to smooth everything out so there are no harsh lines. I will also use this brush to highlight the skin under my eyebrow!
What do you use to clean your face?
Recently, I have fallen in love with the Clarisonic brushes! My mother received one as a gift a while back and never used it, so I decided to give it a try! I love the refreshing gel cleanser it came with too-it makes my skin feel so soft and clean!
What shampoo and conditioner do you use?
Usually, I will wash my hair every 2 or 3 days. I like to switch up my shampoo and conditioner when I run out because I don’t want my hair to get used to one certain type. But recently I have been loving L’Oreal Total Repair 5. I have colored my hair a lot and sometimes it can appear to be a little worn out. This shampoo and conditioner really makes it come back to life and puts a lovely shine to it.
Any good hair products you suggest?
Sometimes, my hair can look a little flat in the root area. For this problem, I have turned to Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Root Lift Mist. This soft mist is great for putting volume in your roots. I will usually blow dry my hair and when it’s almost dry, I will spray this mist all over my roots and then finish blow drying. It really gives my hair that extra volume that it needs.
What is your favorite liquid eye liner?
I have been wearing eye liner for many years, and I have really taken a liking to liquid eye liner. It goes on a lot smoother and lasts longer than a regular pencil. The color is just shaper as well. For my everyday cat eyeliner, I will use Maybelline Line Stiletto. This eye liner is so easy to use because of the felt-tip applicator. It is so nice it’s almost like drawing!
What kind of makeup wipes do you use to take off your makeup?
Makeup remover wipes are an essential, because they not only take off your makeup, they clean your face as well! I have recently been using the L’Oreal Ideal Clean wipes for all skin types. These wipes smell great and take off makeup easily. They even take off waterproof mascara which is a bonus! They are very gentle on my skin and leave it feeling refreshed.
