Even though I’m a huge, false-eyelash obsessed makeup junkie, I usually keep it pretty simple when it comes to my everyday makeup.
There are few things though, that I absolutely cannot live without, like eyeliner, mascara and a good concealer.
Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser– I reach for this cleanser especially when my skin feels dry (which is pretty much always the case during this time of year). It’s a thick, balm-like cleanser that feels quite greasy and nourishing on the skin, but rinses quite nicely. You can see what other morning cleansers I love right here.
Paula’s Choice Lip Scrub– unlike every other lip scrub I’ve tried, this one comes in a tube, which I think is brilliant. I love using matte lip products, which means that my lips feel dry quite often and this scrub is perfect for smoothing them and prepping for lip balm application.
Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1– right after exfoliating my lips, I always follow up with some lip balm before applying lipstick. Sometimes I just go for plain Vaseline but right now I’m really liking this balm from Kiehl’s. Another favorites are Dior’s Crème de Rose and NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm although both have a heavier formula and I prefer them for a nighttime use.
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment– I’ve only been using this eye cream for about a week and I already think that it might replace my beloved Extra Eye Repair Cream from Bobbi Brown. I love that it doesn’t irritate my skin and makes my under eyes feeling smooth and nourished.
MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer in NC15– This is a cult classic and one makeup product that I cannot live without. I love the formula, the color, the coverage it provides, the staying power, I just wish that it came in tube, since I always end up dispensing more product that I need and a lot of it goes to waste (one bottle does last me for ages though- a little goes a looooong way with this one).
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner– A few posts a go, I told you that I have yet to find a Holy Grail of eyeliners, but this one comes pretty close. I love that it’s long-wearing and it’s one of the few liquid pen eyeliners that I actually really like.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara– Mascara is always a must for me and since I own quite a few, I always rotate them, but an everyday favorite will always be Lash Sensational. I still think that it’s one of the best drugstore beauty products I’ve come across and I cannot wait for the new Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara to come out in 2016!
