Daily Makeup Essentials

On my work days I keep it to a minimal where as non work days I might use a bit more products or do more with my eyes and face, like eyeliner, contour and highlight.  I won’t be talking about eyeshadow or fake lashes today because I don’t were them daily. I do go through phases where I like to wear lashes for a week then I don’t for a few weeks.  Most of the products  are from ulta or amazon, there are a few that I received from boxycharm.  I try to keep affordable items in my makeup bag but I like trying the more “expensive” items form boxycharm.

Work days

BB cream

I use Physicians Formula Super BB Cream or Burt’s Bees BB Cream. I love how these both apply and look. Burt’s Bees is a tab more oiler than physicians formula but a little powder helps.

Concealer

On the days were I just feel like I need to cover a few areas I will just use my Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer from Makeup Revolution.

Eyebrows

For eyebrows I like to use Anastasia Beverly Hills Pomade or Maybelline Tattoo Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Gel Nether one are waxy, which I don’t like. Both are easy and stay pretty well a day.

Mascara

I have been really liking my Tarte Big Ego Mascara. It doesn’t flake and makes a difference in my lashes verses I mascara. Also the Better than Sex by Too Faced is nice too. Both mascara’s  I received from boxycharm.

Non work days

Foundation

I reach for my Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation. I like how sits on my skin, not cakey or dry. I prefer using a makeup sponge when applying.

Eyeliner

The Roller Liner by Benefit Cosmetics is a great liner. The felt tip makes it very easy to go from thin to thick lines and doesn’t smudge. I also like Nyx Epic Ink Liner only this one is a bit more wet when you apply.

Contour/Highlight/Blush

A few months back in a boxycharm I received the Tarte Tarteist™ PRO glow cheek palette V3, it has two blushes, contour and highlights. It’s perfect for traveling and compact and saves space in my makeup bag.

April Favorites

Medusa Jewelry– Finally I was able to switch out the post for my medusa. I went for the 8mm post and is the perfect length for me, not to tight or to big. Before I had a 10 or a 11mm post. I still have enough wiggle room for movement. I paid $9.99 for 4 posts.

Lotus earrings– I was browsing through amazon, what else is new and stumbled on to these earrings. You get 4 different colors, silver, gold, rose gold & black for $6.99. I love how they look and are my favorite for earrings right now.

Fitbit Versa lite – I updated my fitbit flex 2 and I am so happy that I did. I have really enjoyed the versa lite, especially the heart rate monitor for workouts and being able log your workouts, water on the watch. Plus I can check the time and see my step count on my wrist.

I used up the rest of my Pacifica bb cream and was cures to try something new but still on the lines of a natural BB Cream. I picked up Burt’s Bees BB Cream with SPF 15 in light & Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream SPF 30 in light. From what I can tell the Burts Bee is more neutral in color than Physicians Formula, more on the warmer side. Both work well for me since I am neutral with slightly warm undertones. Both apply really nice with a brush, I have yet to try with a sponge.

OGX Bodifying + Bamboo Fiber-Full Sugar High Tousle Spray I really like how much volume this spray gives my hair and does not fall flat. A light hand is needed, at lest for my fine hair, when applying. I normally apply on damp hair and blow dry. I might also add a little volume powder too just for extra poof.

In my April boxy Charm I received a Artist Couture – Diamond Glow Powder Its a loose Powder highlight and can be used on the eyes, lips, face and body. Its amazing! It gives you just enough shimmer.

Pink recently had one of their 8 for $28 sales for underwear and I bought myself some more. I normally wait for a big sale like that to buy underwear from Pink.
