My Must Have Make-Up Basics – My favourite make up essentials that I use every day to keep a simple but beautiful natural look.
These are my must have make-up basics that I use on a daily basis. I have never been the kind of girl to wear tons of makeup but I am still a girl and I like to make myself look pretty. So these few products are My Must Have Make-Up Basics. They are what I use most days and also mostly the only products that I use. They leave my face looking smooth, natural and beautiful. And that’s all we really want right?
There was a time in my life, not a very great time of my life, but a time nonetheless that I had seriously bad skin. It was horrible and it gave me self confidence issues and made me want to hide away from the world. It was during this time that I found this foundation by Clinique and it was then that I fell in love with it. I can’t live without my Clinique Foundation, and while my skin has cleared up I still use this every day. What attracted me to it from the start was the fact that even if you have bad skin it never looks “caked” on, do you know what I mean? There’s nothing worse than someone with bad skin and heaps and heaps of makeup to cover it all up. In fact even if you don’t have bad skin it looks horrible if it looks like your foundation is a thick layer of frosting over a cake. This Clinique Foundation is silky and smooth and covers everything up and leaves you with a beautiful natural look. I swear by this stuff and absolutely love it.
I don’t use this every day, only some days when I know it’s going to be a long day or when I’m feeling a little bleh about my skin. This primer is stunning, because it has a really dry finish to it, so it doesn’t make you feel oily or like you have ten million layers of make up on. It also really adds to your foundation, leaving you with a much smoother finish and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores. Which is totally awesome!
Okay, I know it’s more Smashbox. But dam this stuff is good. I only really recently started using Smashbox, and I am totally loving it. I’m not extremely good at doing makeup and also not so into doing a whole lot of makeup. So I like having a few awesome products that will make my face look natural and pop a little. And this mascara really does that, it doesn’t clump up like so many mascaras do and it also makes you lashes look sooooper long. It is amazing guys!
