Imagine we are sitting on my couch with a cucumber face masks on our cheeks, talking about make up and the latest beauty trends. I love exchanging experiences and sharing some tips with each other. That´s what best friends do! So let´s get started:
I usually use the following products on my every day bases. I don´t like to overdo my make-up, that´s why I try to keep it as simple and natural as possible. I probably own less make-up than you do. Seriously! My trick is to use one products for different purposes. Doesn´t make any sense? Here is an examples: I use lipstick not only for my lips, but also for my cheeks as a blush. Saves a lot of money, you could spent on more important things-like shoes;)
So what I basically do every day is moisturizing my skin with my Nivea cream. Yes, that´s right. No fancy, a thousand bucks, high end, anti-aging, makes-your-face-looks-like-a-baby-butt-cream. I have very dry skin and a simple inexpensive Nivea cream works for me.
It´s a fact that flawless skin and chocolate don´t go very well with each other. But since I am having such a sweet tooth, the only solution is a good concealer for any blemishes caused by certain chocolate snack attacks. And of course for under eye circles after long nights. I am using Maybelline´s fit me concealer in shade 15 (it´s very light).
I am probably using my favorite lose powder from kiko (shade 03) since I am 16 (now I am 19). That´s how much I love this product! It´s really light and natural looking, perfect for every day. Since it comes with a sponge under the lid, you can take it everywhere with you if you need to reapply.
Since I have got my naked pallet, I barely bought any new eye shadows, because this pallet contains everything you need. I use color 1 for contouring my eye brows. Color 2 for my lid. Color 3 for highlighting my brow bone and the inner corner of my eyes. And with number 3 and an angled brush I am drawing my eye line. So I saved an eyebrow pencil, an highlighter and an eyeliner. Pretty cool, right?
Last step for my eyes is using my favorite mascara from Maybelline called “illegal definition”. I always say that you don´t need a super expensive mascara, because no one would ever come to you and say: “Omg, I can tell that you used a super cheap mascara on your lashes today.” I swear! As long as it´s working for you, and the ones from Maybelline totally do, you don´t have to spend a lot of money. Oh, and I definitely can´t go without my eyelash curler, because god blessed me with super straight lashes. But I am n0t complaining, because he also created the human being who invented the eyelash curler.
Last but not least my all time blush for rosy cheeks from Benefit. It´s called “coralista-take a pleasure trip to Rio” ( I always love creative packaging names). The blush simply gives a little bit of color for a nice taint and it also highlights your cheekbones.
Finally the last finishing step is applying some lip gloss from essence, which matches my blush perfectly. It´s called “02 my favorite milkshake” (and another cute packaging name).
Drum rolls please- drrrrrrr-my make up is done! I hope this post gave you some good information about my everyday look, which is really simple yet suitable for the daily use. Good luck to you and best wishes,
