Hello my beautiful friends!
I was too busy again last week but that’s why I wanna share the most favorite and asked topic- what is in my makeup bag for every day? What do I carry with me in my handbag and if I need to have a lot.
Wanna share my favorites at the moment which are always with me. My current favorite make up bag is from Victoria’s Secret and I simply love it! So pastel, pretty and girly.Don’t know why, buy lately I’m all into the pastel colours. Starting from clothes and my makeup ending my phone cover picture.
So let’s start with the face.
Foundation. Wanna say that this foundation is The Best at the moment! It’s a Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof foundation from Mac. For me to find the right foundation is super hard. Some of them are too watery, some are too oily or in most cases doesn’t last for the whole day. But this baby lasts and keeps beautiful on a face for the whole day! You might say: Waterproof founfation? Pfff! BUT:
Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation can be used as a concealer or a foundation, wearing for an unprecedented 24 hours. It won’t budge for rain, tears or anything in between. Its oil-free, watertight formula actually repels moisture from the surface of your face while blending seamlessly on your skin with medium-to-full weightless coverage and a natural satin finish.
And it really does! It’s pretty creamy so you need just a few spots on your face, which will be enough for a full coverage. Definitely try it and share your ideas with me in a comments ❤
Concealer. I don’t have so many problems of finding the right concealer as the foundation. But this one is also a must to try. I’m using it for a month or two already and could say that is much better than Estee Lauder Double Wear and Urban Decay Naked, even than Makeup Forever! So I’m using Effacernes Concealer by Lancome. I like a lot that is so weightless and gives the natural look, lasts for the whole day and also covers all the dark circles and blemishes. Sometimes I’m using it alone without the foundation and it gives this kind of awake look for your face. But at the same time it gives the matte finish as well.
Colour balm. I don’t know why (please tell me why I was so stubborn!) , but 4 or 5 months ago I was always saying a BIG NO to creamy sticks, creamy highlighters or illuminators. But now, almost all of my contour/ highlighting or blurring the makeup is using the liquid products. I mean the Chubby Stick from Clinique is just a creamy blush, but still not a powder based. Sot he Cheek Colour Balm is one of the incredible products I have in my purse. It’s creamy, mistake-proof cheek colour creates a healthy-looking glow in an instant. Nevertheless, it’s Oil-free which is amazing for the summer time. There is a huge variety of shades and definitely you will find the right one.
For my eyes it’s pretty simple, I just forgot to add the black liquid eye liner to the purse, but maybe will do a separate review.
Mascara. Haven’t tried yet honestly, so don’t know how good or bad it is. I like the applicator a lot, but will see the quality. It’s a High Impact Mascara from Clinique. On a description it says: A richly-pigmented mascara that instantly volumizes, lengthens, and defines each and every lash. Pump up the volume and length of your lashes for a look that appears lusher, plusher, and bolder. This mascara coats your lashes in pure, deep color for an irresistible lash look. It sounds great so will see how it works!
Eye shadow. As I said before, I’m really into the pastel and nude makeup at the moment, but what I like a lot is to add some shimmer on my face so it would have some glow and natural shine. It’s a single eye-shadow from KIKO. In a colour 129 Macropearly Light Beige. It opens the eyes so nicely, they look bigger and when the sun shines gives a very nice shimmer.
Lips are the easiest thing for me. You can have hundreds of shades, textures and pigmentation’s but it’s never enough anyways. These are 3 current ones In a bag, but you probably know, that you still have quite a lot all over in your handbag, like lip balms and etc. About the YSL Tint Oil you can read in my winter review.
Lip Lingerie from NYX is fab! Gives you a super mat effect and stays on your lips for many hours. Weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish. Available in a range of color-kissed nudes—from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige—each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy color. Moisturizing, fab looking and simply simple and a must have!
Lip Lover from Lancome, is the travel size lip gloss which is always in my makeup bag. Every time I want to have a strong purple colour, I take the lip lover. And the name of the lip gloss is so cute, isn’t it? A dewy intense lip color that creates shine and color without sacrificing moisture. Captivating color intensity combines with the hydration of a balm in this new three-in-one elixir formula. The balmy base provides up to eight hours of moisture while a smoothing layer reduces the appearance of fine lines and creates a dewy shine. Finally, the saturated pigments provide the ultimate in color pop.
