I thought I would do something different and let you guys in and show you all the way I do my makeup on an everyday basis.
Now I an definitely no pro , on the contrary I am still learning how to apply my own makeup correctly and finding out what products suits best for my skin. I am a true makeup beginner and only started to really dabble with wearing makeup when I started this blog ! Shocking I know…
These are the products I use on an everyday basis , well at the moment it is… I prefer finishing a product completely before starting on something new – that way I don’t leave any to waste because makeup can seriously be expensive !
I start off with a good day cream , I have extremely dry skin and always apply a good moisturizer to be my base before I start applying any product to it – the Eurphates is a great day cream I also am using other products but I will go in depth with them all on a separate post , this keeps my face feeling moisturized all day and I don’t have to worry about those nasty dry patches showing.
Now that my canvas is all creamed up I apply a primer, at the moment I am using the Palladio primer , which is silicone based – this primer is a gem! A little really does go a long way you only need a tiny drop and rub this into your face. This primer retails for R140 I think they can only be purchased at Dischem stores.
Next up is foundation! A girls got to cover up those pigmentation, I am using the BlackUp foundation in the shade HC01 , this is my everyday foundation, I apply it with a damp beauty blender or with my Real Techniques Buffing brush both blends my foundation really well. I find that the Buffing brush gives me a better full coverage look.
Essence Cosmetics Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara
For eyebrows I am using the Essence Cosmetics Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara, this stuff is the best brow gel I have ever used! It makes sure my brows are stayed put all day… I also fill them with some eyeshadow it just makes them look abit better.
LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer
I have extremely bad dark under eye curled so I need some help with lightening them and not make me look like a zombie- I have been loving the LA Girl Pro Conceal HD concealer in shade Pure Beige , this is a tad lighter then my skin tone but I love the results it blends so well.
Essence Cosmetics Soo Glow Highlighter
I am in love with this cream highlighter from Essence. As you can see I have been showing it lots of love from the picture I am just about reaching pan… I am using the shade 10 look on the bright side , which is more on the goldish side. I apply it above my cheekbones ,forehead,bridge of my nose and my Cupid’s bow. Basically anywhere the skin would hit my face…
