Everyday beauty: my 7 favorites

Everyday beauty

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

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!

    That Kiel’s lip balm looks so hydrating, might consider buying it instead of Nuxe reve de miel! Love stila’s eye liner but find it quite expensive, glad I found an alternative with a maybelline liquid eyeliner!

    Love the sound of the Paula’s Choice lip scrub! I find the ones in a pot so messy, I hate getting the scrubby bits under my nails!!

    I love that mascara too! It’s nearly as good as Benefit They’re Real, in my opinion.

    I’ve never tried the lash sensation mascara before. It looks beautiful though! I’ve also been hearing great things about the Cover Girl Super Sizer (the one in the green tube with the strange wand), have you tried that one before?

      Cover Girl Super Sizer is great. It’s my fav right now and I’ve been reaching for it ever since I bought it. The waterproof formula works wonderful for my Asian lashes. It holds the curl as well.

    The Kiehl’s lip balm is also a favorite of mine, I already ran out of it so I need a new one soon.

    Couldn’t agree more on the LashSensational mascara!! I feel so silly because I love Paula’s Choice and I had no idea that they had a lip scrub. I cannot wait to try that out :)

    I think my eyelash curlers are definitely my everyday essential! My lashes are quite long but dead straight, and curling them always makes such a difference. Lip balm is something I reach for every morning too, and it’s usually the plain old vaseline! I like the sound of the lip scrub! I have a nice one from Lush but it’s in a pot and pretty messy. x

    None of my lip balm are cutting it out anymore and I am seriously suffering with dry lips so think I may have to check out the Kiehl’s or Nuxe versions. MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer is also among my faves x

    Good lip balm, currently loving one from REN, foundation and mascara are definitely my ‘must haves’. Then it would have to be some brow product and blush :) And of course my skincare, I can’t go without washing/cleansing my face twice a day and moisturising :) x

      I haven’t tried any lip care products from REN! Skincare is very important for me too, taking off my makeup is one of my favorite things to do haha :) It’s almost as much fun as putting it on :)

    I’m a fan of Stila eyeliner too. They stay put all day and are very easy to create cat eyes. I liked Maybelline mascara before but not so much at the moment! Thanks for sharing :x

    I used to love Mac Pro Longwear Concealer but I totally agree about the packaging. A little tube would be perfect – I now use the Nars Creamy Concealer because I feel like I use what I need and I don’t waste products.

    My everyday essentials are my Shu Uemura eyelash curler, Nars Creamy Concealer and Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm… they are the products that I apply everyday without fail.

    Gorgeous photos as always!

    I’ve just bought myself the Lash Sensational so I’m excited to see what all the fuss it about! I’m also a huge fan of the Dior Creme De Rose, it’s definitely one of my everyday beauty staples.

    Vaseline is my everyday favourite as you can use it for lips, taming brows and even removing mascara. I always have a pot in my bag.

    Love this post, your pictures are always fab!
