Makeup is meant to enhance one’s natural beauty. It is not meant to create a new you.
Some ladies start wearing make up in their teenage years. I was one of them. Then, as I began to grow older I wore less and less makeup. No particular reason. I just don’t ear a lot of make up. I reserve a fully made up look for special occasions. On regular days, I do little more than groom my brows, put on some eyeliner and lipgloss.
While I do not always wear a lot of make up, I love buying it. After all, I need to have it at my disposal for when I do In spite of all of the make up that I have managed to amass through purchasing, receiving as gifts or receiving to review, there’s just 5 that I never want to be without. The following 5 makeup products are all I need for a day to day polished look.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara – I have typical eye lashes. I don’t like to apply falsies but I do want elongated lashes. While I am much of a mascara hoarder, if I had to choose just one brand this would be it. The Falsies gives me long and voluminous lashes with just 2-3 strokes.
L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Concealer - For the longest time I’ve searched to find the right concealer to highlight my brows as well as mask any discoloration marks on my face so that I don’t look like a ghost. It took some time but this is the one. It’s very blendable and looks natural when blended properly.
Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup - I have sensitive skin. Clinique has always been my brand of choice for full face makeup. This cream foundation is very light and virtually melts into my skin while giving me a very natural look. It provides a small amount of coverage for my hyperpigmentation areas.
Rimmel London Eye Liner – I’m not usually picky when it comes to eyeliner but I do require a brand that glides on and stays on without caking. The Rimmel liner does it effortlessly and affordably.
YBF Automatic Eyebrow Pencil – This brow pencil gives you the most natural looking brows. I’ve been using another brand lately because the YBF pencil was sold out when I ran out. It’s very popular because depending on the amount of pressure you apply to the pencil, it can turn up to 22 shades – the perfect shade appearing based on your skin tone. When I am done using the temporary replacement pencil I have been using, I’m going back to this.
