Over the past few weeks I've found myself reaching for many of the same products over and over again. With a good consistent pre-work morning routine down pat I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you.
Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation: This is a foundation that continuously circles back around in my makeup bag. While I do like trying new products I find myself usually coming back to my two staple foundations (this one and the Armani Luminous Silk). Between the two I find that the Chanel fits my day-to-day needs the best - especially as the weather gets warmer. It's super lightweight, but gives the perfect amount of coverage to even out my skin tone. It works well with my dry skin and it leaves a dewy finish that is perfect for daytime.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow: This is a product that I tend to reach for nine times out of ten. It topped my favorite products of 2014 and when deciding what products to pack for a trip this one always comes along. The bronzer portion doses out the perfect sun-kissed glow and is highly pigmented. It's warm toned, but not orange. The highlight is the prettiest golden shimmer and also incredibly pigmented. Just a subtle wash on the top of the cheekbone is all that is needed. When I'm running behind I throw this on and skip over blush entirely.
Anastasia Brow Wiz: If you were to say to me that I could only choose to keep either my eyeliner or my brow product I'd be pretty hard pressed to make a decision. I feel a million times more put together with a bit of brow product brushed through. Since I have decently full brows to begin with, the Brow Wiz is the perfect product for filling in gaps and polishing my brows.
Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Liner: If you read my blog regularly you'll know that my biggest love is my Tom Ford Eye Definer Pen. However, if you've read my blog for a long time you'll also know that this Maybelline liner was my first true liquid liner love. Even though my Tom Ford pen is still going strong, I recently began grabbing for my Maybelline one as well. (It all started when the Tom Ford pen was too long to fit in the TSA approved bag and I was terrified of airport security throwing my beloved pen away.) With a slightly different formula and tip I find that the Maybelline can give a bit of a different look and I've been loving switching between the two. I've also been favoring a bare eyelid in terms of eyeshadow. I think it looks super sleek to have no shadow and just a heavy flick. If I do add any eye shadow it's in the form of a quick swipe of the By Terry Ombré Blackstar.
Maybelline Full N' Soft Mascara: Seriously one of the most underrated mascaras on the Maybelline stand. Half the time they don't even sit it with the other mascaras on display! This bad boy gives super fluttery, super long, and super jet black lashes. I can't get as much length and curl from any other mascara in my bag.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector '02': This product is everything to me at the moment. I reach for it like someone else may reach for a chapstick. It is the perfect wash of color, super hydrating, and a color that flatters a lot of makeup looks.
