Today we’re talking BEAUTY. Makeup is something I’ve been extremely passionate about ever since I was introduced to them during dance recitals and performances. I love walking into Sephora or Ulta and just being around artists who can enhance your greatest qualities on your face. In high school, I wore the Too Faced neutral eyeshadow every day; but since coming to college, but makeup routine has definitely changed and become simpler. I wanted to share with you all what my college makeup routine is!
Coming to college, I didn’t bring much with me. Obviously, I didn’t bring all of my makeup, really only the basics.
I start off with the First Aid Beauty moisturizer for any really dry or red spots, typically around my mouth, nose, and chin. Then I use the Clinique Moisturizing Gel for the rest of my face.
Then I use my trusty Make Up Forever HD foundation. Guys. I swear by this! It has perfect coverage and is not cakey whatsoever. It’s pretty pricey, but it is totally worth it. And it’s lasting me a long time! I wet my sponge, and squirt a bit of the liquid foundation and smooth it over my face.
Next, I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Foundation to settle everything! I like this one a lot because it’s light and also not cakey.
The final face makeup thing I do is Revlon’s blush or Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer. I never really use both at once because it’s just too much for my face, in my opinion.
Finally, I finish off my routine by filling in my eyebrows with Anastasia Eyebrow Whiz (I also swear by this), and using Revlon’s Eyelash Curler and Covergirl Last Blast Volume Mascara, because these Asian eyelashes ain’t curling themselves! I swear by this eyelash duo because my eyelashes stay curled and perky all day. No other mascara works like this one (I suppose it’s because it’s waterproof)!
So there you have it, my makeup routine! Those are all the makeup products I use on a daily basis. It’s all really neutral and much less than what I wore in high school. With 8:30am classes, I really just don’t have the effort to wear eyeliner or eyeshadow anymore.
What do you think? Have you tried any of these products before?
