One would say my make up is minimalistic, another natural, but I’d name it simply stripped to bare essentials. And those are? Good foundation and mascara, simple as that. I’m not big on experimenting in the morning, so through the last few years I perfected my routine to the point I can do it in 10 minutes, still half asleep. Products may change, but concept stays the same.
Primer: Discovered it in summer and now I swear by it. It’s Sephora’s Smoothing primer. It’s cheap, but it makes all the difference in keeping the foundation on the face all day.
Foundation: I’m a big fan of MAC. I’ve dabbled in Benefit for a while, but then certain makeup artist opened my eyes about the yellow undertone of my skin. Enough to say, I’m now hooked on Pro Longwear NC 20 for life. It gives just enough coverage for everyday use and looks absolutely amazing. I recently made mistake of listening to another MUA and ended up purchasing Studio Sculpt in a shade lighter, which I now have to mix with L’Oreal True Match C2 Rose Vanilla to make it work. While it gives much more coverage and really flawless result, it’s also much more difficult to work with than the Pro Longwear.
Press Powder: To fixate the foundation, I use two things. Revlon’s Nearly Naked Press Powder in Fair Clair or MAC’s Prep+Prime transparent finishing powder. Sometimes both, sometimes just one or another, depends on a day.
Blush/Bronzer: I still swear on my Benefit Rockateur blush/bronzer. Always on my cheeks, I love it that much I literally don’t have any other.
Mascara: Currently I have MAC’s In Extreme Dimension 3D and it works miracles!
Eyeshadow: I use it just to give my eyes some dimension – it’s from Barry M Natural Glow palette, I think it’s called Tan (you can see which one of all is used the most…) .
Brows: A bit of eyebrow gel, just to keep them in place. I don’t think my gigantic brows need anything else, beside regular tweezers action…
