Makeup Bag Spill: What I'm Currently Using
It's been quite a while since I last dumped out my makeup bag to show you. Being a beauty blogger, I try out a ton of different products, but the daily routine usually stays more-or-less the same with the exception of a single-item swap here and there. I've finally gotten to a collection of products that I love, and work really well for me, so read on to find out what they are!
Most days, I stick with this ultra-light tinted moisturizer, which really just evens out complexion and adds a little hydration! If you're a full-foundation girl, this is not for you, but I've found that since getting away from higher-coverage foundations, my skin has looked so much better!
However, for the days when I have something special (photoshoot, night out with the girls, etc) I'll swipe on a little of this buildable-coverage foundation stick for a flawless finish! See a before/after video I did with them HERE!
I've rarely seen any major zits pop up lately, but I've been using this concealer for under-eyes! It's incredibly moisturizing, so it will help relieve those tired purple circles while you wear it!
This is so far the most natural and believable bronzer I've found for my pale skin. It's a cream formula, so I swipe it under my cheekbones and along my forehead and jawline and then blend! Never going back to powder bronzers again!!
Tarte blushes have never ceased to be amazing, I switch up the color depending on the time of year, but this one in exposed is one of their most popular, because it looks amazing on a ton of different skin tones!
This stuff is the ultimate dewy, wet-looking highlight. A swipe across the top of your cheekbone, on the chin, cupids-bow, nose, and forehead will have you glowing all day and night!!
Very few mascaras have ever "wow-ed" me, most are just average, but I'm in love with this one from Wander! It's not too watery or too thick, It applies like a dream and hits just in the middle of giving length and volume!
I'm not a huge heavy-eyemakeup girl, but a little tight-line with this pencil gives a natural definition to the eyes and makes lashes look a lot thicker! (tightlining= lining the inner waterline of your upper lashes)
When I do want a little extra focus on the eyes, the shades Jetsetter (a cool brown-grey) and Smarty Pants (warm terracotta) are two of my go-tos!
I could never go anywhere without filling in my brows. They frame your face and just look weird without being groomed. I use Wander Beauty's brow pencil in Taupe (which has a spoolie at the other end for combing!) and occasionally I'll swipe through a little brow gel when I want them to be more polished.
The king of all lip-balm / everything-balms. They come in 5 flavors, (2 un-tinted, 2 tinted, 1 sparkle) and my favorite have to be the un-tinted coconut flavor, and their newest Milk Bar Birthday Cake flavor with just a hint of shimmer! (it's like eating a cupcake every time you put it on!!)
