Hi everyone and welcome to a new blog post! Today’s post is all about what is in my makeup collection! I don’t have a huge collection but I love makeup and seeing all the different types of products.
Here you can find all sorts of brands though be warned, most of them are high-end products. I do like shopping in drugstores and buying the more affordable prices, I just find I spend most of my time in Sephora and, my nearest drugstore isn’t exactly the type that would have a huge section of cosmetics, hence the reason I have high end branded makeup.
I don’t wear makeup too often but if I do, it’s very simple: mascara, concealer, and on occasions, some eyeshadow, like for when I’m going out with my friends and things. As well as some lipstick. The type of lipstick I wear is just your normal lip balm/gloss type and it doesn’t have a deep tint to it. I find I suit nude shades or in general very light shades of lipstick.
So let’s get started!
I always start with my face products because I just find that it’s a little easier to handle. And, if I do eyeshadow, I find I base it off how I’m feeling for that day. On days when I feel like I need more coverage like I know I’m going out a lot, I’ll use a foundation but if I find I don’t need that much coverage, I’ll go for just using concealer.
Too Faced Hangover 3 in 1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray
I really like this Primer so far as it really helps my face makeup stay. I find that I’ve been trying a lot of primers and none of them work as well as this. I found that primer mists really work with me rather than the cream one better. This is one of the first primers that I’ve really liked and I’m definitely okay with trying different types of primers, mist or cream.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oil-Free SPF 25 Foundation in I’m so Money (Honey)
This foundation is great as it’s very lightweight and as I’m a student, I don’t need such full coverage so I like to occasionally use this. I don’t wear foundation to school unless really necessary. Though with this foundation, I find that this shade goes on very orange so I’ve had to really mix it in or put more concealer. All in all, it’s very hydrating and doesn’t leave my skin too dry.
Sephora High Coverage Concealer – Natural finish in 29: Pink Beige
This concealer has so far been such a lifesaver. This is a pretty full coverage concealer (in my terms) and a little goes a long way. I love the doe foot applicator as it really spreads the product and doesn’t focus too much on one area. This product is currently one of my favorites.
Kat Von D Lock-it Setting Powder in Translucent
This setting powder currently has really changed the feel of my face after I apply it. I know how that sounds (weird) and I can assure you that the powder really makes a slight difference in your makeup. It really locks it in place and it holds all the concealer and foundation in. I definitely like the way it works but when using my beauty blender to apply, it seems to get all over the place.
Sephora Bronzing Powder in Deep 3: Mykonos
This bronzer has really changed my cheekbones. I have the smallest, tiniest really, definition when it comes to my cheekbones and the moment I apply this bronzer, my cheekbones already look completely defined and it also really puts a nice color to my cheeks. My whole face really! This is one of my top products.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Blushing Bride
This blush is truly amazing. I use a NARS brush and I feel like you don’t need to seriously pack the brush with a lot of product. The one thing I can say is that I do have to go back into the product as the blush is a little too light but I don’t use too much where my whole face is all white. I found this blush after watching a Youtuber name Kristin Johns talk about it and she said that it was a really good product and very light. I can 100% agree and that’s why it is one of my favorite products.
Urban Decay Long Lasting Setting Spray in All Nighter
The Setting Spray has honestly been very useful whenever I use it. It’s convenient and it really goes by it’s name, “Long Lasting”. It does smell a little weird but that doesn’t stop me from using the product. Unless it continuously smells like that then I’d have a problem with it. But this doesn’t as it goes away after a while. All in all, this is a great product to use and very nice as a setting spray.
Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Eyeshadow Primer in: Light/Medium
This product has very much saved my life. I actually have pretty a pretty oily face so I constantly worry about my face looking oily after a while. I started to notice that when I wear eyeshadow for a long time, because of the thin fold on my eyelid, after a few hours I notice that there’s this oily line where the fold is. This eyeshadow primer has really stopped that from happening. Not only does this product keep my eyelids from getting oily, it really helps the eyeshadow and eyeliner stay on until I take it off.
Tarte Tarteist Pro to Go and Tartelette Flirt Eyeshadow Pallette
These two pallettes are my go to pallettes as I don’t really use eyeshadow every single day. They are the travel size pallettes and are really handy as I’m not one to explore the eyeshadow color world. I really don’t need anything too bright colored or too dark and these two pallettes I would say are both smoky eye pallettes but not too much of a smoky look. I would say minimal smoky but still smoky. These two are really my favorite pallettes and I would say I can’t seem to stop using them.
Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara: Original and Waterproof
I’m not sure I need to say anything else except for it’s one of my favorite mascaras to use. You can check out my previous post to read all about how I bought both mascaras rather than one.
Kat Von D Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Trooper Black
This eyeliner so far as I’ve used it is really good and very strong. It’s easy to apply but super hard to take off. I guess that’s what makes it waterproof. They had a brown eyeliner but I find that brown isn’t every suiting for my eyes. I tried it and just regretted it immediately. Luckily the black one is easy to use so I really like to use it.
Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel
This brow gel is super easy to use and very convenient. I find that I don’t like to do much to my eyebrows as I don’t need such definition considering I’m just a teenager. Using the Gimme Brow Gel has really allowed my brows to really look natural looking. I like to brush my brows out first and then go with the gel mainly at the ends of my brow without using too much product to make my brows look unnatural. I love this product very much and if you aren’t looking to do much with your brows, I would highly recommend this product to you.
This is it for my makeup collection!
