Choosing what products to use and then applying a full face of makeup can be so time-consuming. Fortunately, I have come across a few products that make it easier for me to apply a full face of makeup in just five minutes. It’s important to be incredibly efficient for doing a full face of makeup every day in such a short time. If you’re confused and you have to pick out what products to use every other day, I’m going to share a few makeup essentials that I incorporate into my makeup routine every day.
Let’s start with eyebrows. I can’t leave the house without doing my eyebrows any day. My go-to eyebrow product is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown. The Dipbrow Pomade is absolutely amazing! It’s a staple in my brow routine. The Dipbrow has proven to be my go-to product since I bought it. It’s amazing how little product you need, and the texture is just perfect – not too creamy or tacky. I love the fact that this pot gives me a more intense payoff and a thicker appearance, just makes everything beautiful to me. It’s waterproof and setting it with brow powder or any kind of powder just keeps it in place for soooo long! Not to mention it lasts a lot longer so you don’t have to worry about your brows disappearing at some point in the night.
I start off with the Morphe M158 brush and using the lighter end of the definer to draw a straight line at the bottom and top of my brow. Drawing lines below and above your brows makes the application so much easier, I promise. Plus, drawing lines really helps to keep the brow neat and instantly makes a difference. I start filling my brows and occasionally using a spooile to blend the color slightly so it doesn’t look too harsh.
I use the same shade and start off with small, light strokes in the arch and the head of the brow. I always try to fill the head with a very light hand. You can also use a lighter shade to do the head of your brow too. The next thing I do is use my Bobbi Brown Brow Gel to tame my hairs and keep them in place. Then I gently brush this through my brows from the start to end and it manages to coat every single hair which makes my brows look even more naturally full and thick which is exactly what I want. After I’m done filling my brows and blending all the product, I like to take my Too Faced Born This Way Concealer and shape out my brows! And voila, I have my desired brows!
Next up is, foundation! I love using the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear foundation but since it’s winter and I don’t want to put a lot of makeup at times I reach out for the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is just incredible. It’s perfect for everyday wear and lasts for really long. This product definitely gives you a nice radiant glow, and I really like how you can build the coverage from sheer to more. I love how it gives an amazing radiance to your skin yet making it look natural. I always use a Beauty Blender to blend my foundation and concealer and it’s the best thing ever.
The Too Faced Born This Way Concealer has been my favorite ever since it came out and I don’t think I’ll ever like any concealer as much as this. The Born This Way Sculpting concealer is full coverage and is hydrating. It blends out so easily and concealers tend to crease, but this is amazing; it doesn’t crease at all. I have been using it for a couple days and so far, this is the best concealer I’ve ever used. I really love how it’s super easy to blend, it blends like a dream! The finish is natural and it doesn’t dry at all. It really doesn’t crease or settle into fine lines, it’s just flawless. The concealer is long lasting and it stays for so long. I had it on for 10 hours and it still looked absolutely flawless! I also wore it in hot and humid weather just to test it and it holds up so well. It doesn’t dry up my skin even in winter. I’m so in love with this concealer. The Born This Way Sculpting concealer is definitely good for dry skin as it is hydrating. Overall, I highly recommend this concealer. This concealer will definitely last a long time plus it is full coverage and you just need so little product. The concealer provides amazing coverage while being weightless and non-drying. It’s the best concealer I’ve used so far!
I have been in love with the NARS Hot Tryst Cheek Palette is a stunning collection of versatile blushes and highlighters beautifully packaged in a one-of-a-kind case! This cheek palette is a total must-have for any NARS fan! At first, I didn’t even want to swatch the shades because I didn’t want to mess them up, I mean, just look how BEAUTIFUL!!
During winter, I like using a blush to bring some color to my face. The blushes are very pigmented, so finely milled and they leave a natural-looking flush to flatter any skin tone. The colors are buildable and you can add as much color as you want and the intensity of the blushes and highlighters are phenomenal. The blushes are formulated with silky, superfine, micronized, powder pigments to ensure soft, blendable application. The shades include a range of translucent, natural tones with a subtle pink undertone to highlight the complexion. Bowery has become my favorite blush shade now, and I’m sure that I will be using this for quite some time now. The NARS Hot Tryst Cheek Palette is total must-have! Every single shade is so beautiful and they all look so so gorgeous on the skin. I love how this makes my face glow!
The last product on my list is the lipstick. If you’ve been reading my posts, you’ll know that I’ve been in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Ashton since forever. That’s my go-to lipstick. This one’s definitely a must. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks are my go-to lipsticks. My favourite shades have to be Kathryn, Allison, and Ashton. The lipsticks are extremely pigmented and have a nice, creamy consistency which allows them to glide onto the lips ever so smoothly. They give a very nice look at the first application and it looks so beautiful. I can wear them all day without retouching and I absolutely love it. Like all ABH lipsticks, they are very comfortable and feel so light on the lips. These are very long lasting! Just put any of these shades with everything mentioned above, and I’m just good to go!
I like to top it off with the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb. The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow is perfect for a simple day and I love how I can wear it alone or over literally any lip colour. And I’m ready for the day in under 5 minutes.
