Haaaaaaaayyyyy dolls, my first blog post is finally here! Can you all believe it??? Well, I’ve waited for this day for sometime. I am so excited to start this journey with you all. Yassss queens!!! What could be better than to talk about the products I use on a daily basis aka my everyday look!! It is very simple...now simple can mean different things, from only wearing BB cream and Mascara to wearing full coverage and falsies. I guess it all depends on what you are comfortable with. Sooo with that being said let’s talk about my everyday work look.
First, I always, and i mean ALWAYS, wear primer!
I spend about 8 hours a day at work, it is very important to use a good face/eye primer to make sure my makeup stays in place. Primers also help smooth any fine lines, wrinkles or in my case large pores.
**major eye roll to large pores**
Currently I am using the Too Faced Hangover primer, I got it in my Ipsy bag so why not put it to use right? Well after my first time using I became obsessed and it might be one of my top primers along with the Mary Kay one. For eyes, nothing new I’ve used the Urban Decay’s potion for yearssssss.
Then, I move on to eyes, eyebrows and mascara…
Now this is when the simplicity comes into play. I am not a simple girl lol so having to do my makeup as simple as possible for work is hard. It probably takes me 5-10 minutes to put some shadow, eyeliner and mascara. And the eyebrows are so quick yet beautiful and natural:)
-The duo shadow from MAC gives me the natural look but also gives a little pop with the gold glitter! Then I go in with a cream eyeliner for a small smudged look.
-For the eyebrows I just use the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow powder duo. I just fill in my brows with their brush, following my natural shape. And set it with the Anastasia Beverly Hills gel to keep my crazy hairs in place.
-I have the shortest lashes in the world I SWEAR. I recently started using the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I got the duo pack, it comes with lash primer and it works wonders, makes my lashes look fuller and longer. Sometimes I curl my lashes and then use the primer and mascara for a better fuller look.
Finally, I get started on my face (foundation, contour and highlight) :}
Fit Me by Maybelline and the MAC 130 brush go together perfectly, like PB & J <3 This foundation is perfect for my oily skin and large pores. (eye roll) I like it because it doesn't clog my pores and its oil free. The 130 brush is amazzzzzing!! I apply my foundation on my face and then blend in circle motions and it gives me an airbrush finish. I make sure to set my foundation with the MAC studio fix powder to make sure it stays in place and it also helps a lot with oil control. I don't usually wear concealer on an everyday basis due to the fact the this awesome foundation gives me enough coverage.
Using the Anastasia Beverly Hills powder contour palette I will slightly contour with an angled contour brush.
My favorite part is my highlight...I don't really care how simple my look is MY HIGHLIGHT WILL ALWAYS BE ON FLEEK GIRL! My favorite highlighter is the MAC Global Glow. my obsession is so bad that I feel naked without it. I’ve been using this brush for my highlight ever since i got it in my Ipsy bag a couple of months ago, it’s by “CROWN” and i like it over my small fan brush because it gives me more control on where the product goes on my face. Anywhoooo i love looking like a golden goddess...Hehe am I the only one?
As far as lips, sadly I only wear chapstick LOL and the reason for that is because I have breakfast on the go and I learned the hard way lipstick gets errrywhere when you’re trying to have a big bite of your bagel hahah. Also, I give my little girl smooches when I drop her off at school and believe me she does not like to walk into school with lipstick all over her face..she made it very clear to me that “IT’S NOT COOL”
