Hello lovelies! It’s currently finals week for me, so in order to escape from that for a little while, let’s do a Makeup Monday! Here are my current go-to makeup products in my everyday beauty routine!
This was an eyeshadow that I didn’t like at first because I thought it was too glittery but now I literally use it almost every day. This is Un from Jenn Im’s Colourpop collaboration. I heard it recently came back in stock but sold out within a day.
I fell in love with this shadow because the gold instantly brings light into your eyes. At first, I thought it was a bit much to wear during the day, but now I always apply a wash of it onto my lids and either wear it alone or with a warm brown color in the crease.
I’m sure there are lots of other eyeshadows on the market that are similar to this, but I’m absolutely in love with this shadow at the moment!
I picked up this foundation a couple months ago and it’s the best one I’ve tried so far! It keeps me matte longer than any other foundation I’ve used and the coverage is really good. Plus, since my skin is behaving for now, it really gives my skin a matte, airbrushed finish without looking too flat. I have the shade 103 Natural Buff, but I just picked up 104 Golden Beige because I think 103 is a bit too light for me. We’ll see how that shade works out!
This is a mascara I keep coming back to. I’ve done a review on it here if you want to read up on it, but in short, this mascara lengthens, volumizes, and curls my lashes and I really enjoy using it!
I’m not too fussy with concealers so I’ve stuck with this one since it’s supposed to be a cult favorite. For me, it does what I need it to do: it has good coverage, isn’t too much lighter than my skin tone for a natural look, and lasts for the majority of the day. I tend to rub the area under my eyes a lot anyways because my eyes easily tear up, so I’m not really concerned about whether or not it can last through that because it probably won’t, haha.
But other than that, I find that it’s a really easy product to use and it’s super affordable too!
This is another cult favorite that I’ve used for years. This Rimmel powder doesn’t keep me matte all day long, but for the price, the quality is pretty great!
It definitely mattifies you when you apply it, but not to the point where you would look super cakey. I would say using this powder extends the time that my makeup lasts for about 3 or 4 more hours than it would without using it!
I use highlighter on the daily now because of this product. This is the Essence Pure Nude highlighter and I use this because it gives off such a natural highlight. If you pack it on, it looks like a high-end highlighter, but it doesn’t look heavy and still looks more like a natural glow in photos.
My lipstick collection has been exponentially growing in the last couple of years so I’ve made it a point to rotate through my lipsticks these days so I actually use them. However, my favorite at the moment is One of a Kind from Rimmel’s The Only One collection. It’s a deep red color, but I like to dab it on and blend it in with my fingers for a more natural look. It still makes my lips look quite red, but not as strong as it would if I applied it directly onto my lips.
So those are the products I currently use almost every single day! I probably couldn’t live without them in my routine and I really love them at the moment! Let me know what your must-have products are in the comments below! I hope you all enjoyed this post and I’ll see you lovelies tomorrow!
