Hi everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t been updating my blog these past few months. Reason for that is that I’m focusing on trying to get my math grade up and that has been a really slow process so I’ve just been focusing on that and I’ve really put all my focus on schoolwork which means I don’t have as much time to write during the week. But, because it’s almost Thanksgiving break and I’m so thankful for Thanksgiving and the break and all my stress has finally been released these past few weeks, I will now be uploading to my usual time of every Saturday’s at 1pm! So let’s get started!
As a student, I tend to wear makeup whenever possible even though I find that it’s slightly hard to do that at 6 am in the morning after showering, so, I came up with five types of makeup that I use and that are simple steps and very easy to use, even for beginners.
I use a lot of these steps but sometimes I don’t even use all five products! But, on the weekend these five products are my go to and I must use it because it’s the weekend and its fun. I feel like all my products have actually been mentioned in previous
Product one is my all time favorite, mascara; the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, waterproof and non-waterproof. It’s easy to use and doesn’t need that many coats of mascara to really notice the difference between no mascara vs mascara.
Product two is Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Gel. This is the smaller version of the Brow Gel (sorry I’m not entirely sure what it is called). By using this, I don’t at all have to use a pencil for my brows, I just put this on my brows and use a spooly to soften it up. This product is actually already a spooly, but, I use another spooly to soften it up because I find that there can be a lot of product on my brows if I don’t use the extra spooly and I find that my eyebrows are way too dark compared to my face makeup.
Product three is the Sephora brand concealer which I don’t use a lot, but I love its coverage. I find that I never have to use foundation as I don’t always want to use foundation because it provides too much coverage for me on a daily basis if I want to wear something to cover up all the imperfections that I have. I feel like you don’t really need a branded concealer like Too Faced or Kat Von D or others to get a nice type of concealer. Of course, if you want to have one for Too Faced and others, you can. The Sephora brand I found is a cheaper option and has really good coverage for light makeup as well as heavy makeup.
Product four is one of my favorite things, the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Blushing Bride. I got this because of one of my favorite YouTubers, Kristen Johns because she used it on her wedding day and she did also say that it was really good. So I bought it and after months of using this blush, I can absolutely say that it is amazing. It is very light so I do occasionally have to pack a lot on my cheeks but that is the good thing I find about this product. It lets me put as much as I need with easy control of the product and that is one of the things I love about this product.
Product five is the Sephora Bronzing Powder in the shade Mykonos. I find that it goes great with my skin tone and really gives me definition to my cheeks. I try to use a little less product with this because I find that a little goes a long way with this. Unlike the blush, you really have to use less powder with this. All in all, this product is an amazing bronzer and I love to use it as more of a contour and then a bronzer but both do go great.
Lastly, product six is something I find essential as I have probably the oiliest face out of my entire family. The Kat Von D Translucent Powder. I have the mini powder and I find that I can even bring it to school and it works perfectly. I don’t need to pack too much powder and I don’t have to complain about my face always being extremely oily throughout the day.
Somethings I also like to add is a tiny strip of eyeliner on some occasions. I use The Body Shop eyeliner in the skinny fit felt eyeliner. I love the way how smooth it flows on my eyes and the way the wing forms in seconds. I did try the Kat Von D Trooper Black eyeliner but I found that it really didn’t go on smoothly and left gaps in between. But, I now use The Body Shop eyeliner and it suits me well.
Guys that is all for the products! Now you don’t have to follow these but I found these to be really helpful when I wake up early for school. Makeup is something I really enjoy and I don’t have to hate myself every morning for each complicated step. Each of these products is easy to use and the way it feels on the face is comfortable that sometimes I actually forget I put on any makeup.
So, I’m sorry for the late posts but I do hope you enjoy this one! I hope you’ve had some suggestions on what to buy!
