Hi everyone, here is yesterday’s makeup look that I first posted on Instagram. Hope you like it!
Tate Clean Slate Poreless 12HR Perfecting Primer – I don’t always use primers, because I don’t always see a difference with using them, but on special occasions I put it on for a peace of mind. This is one of the better ones I’ve used. The other one I have is the Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Pore Minimizing Primer and I tend to reach out for the Tarte one more. The Smashbox primer does do a great job at minimizing pores, if you’re going outside with no makeup, it does a great job at concealing the pores, but I always forget it =)
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12Hr Full Coverage Foundation SPF15 in Medium Neutral.
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – works well for my dry skin. I still get oily in the T-zone area, especially by the nose, but this definitely helps.
Anastasia Brow Definer in Dark Brown – this is triangular tipped, I liked the shape of it when I tried it at the Sephora store, but now I’m not sure. This does help with creating the shape, but I like to reach out for the pointed pencil when I fill in my hairs. Maybe I’m just not used to it. This was recommended when I was looking for something that will last longer and it does in comparison to others I’ve tried.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner – this is super easy to apply for your waterline. If you swatch it on your hand, it doesn’t budge! I always get some transfer to the bottom of my eyes toward the end of the day, but this does a much better job at keeping it where it should be. And I just discovered that the other end is a sharpener =p
Loreal False Fiber Lashes Mascara in waterproof – I don’t wear mascara most of the time, too time consuming for me. This is the one I just bought the other day and it’s not bad! Easy to apply, smudge and flake free, and it hasn’t irritated my sensitive eyes yet (as advertised).
Also used and not pictured above is the Marc Jacobs lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang #216 that I didn’t find at the time the picture was taken. It’s creamy, non-drying, great color pay-off in one swipe, and just a beautiful rose color!
Please comment below if you have any thoughts you’d like to share on any of these. Have a great one!
