Welcome to my blog!
Today’s post is going to be a different one as today i am going to be talking about my everyday make-up essentials. I have seen a lot of blog posts and vlogs where the beauty bloggers talk about their “Everyday Makeup Essentials” and now I would like to share my own version with you all :).
I always do posts about skin care, hair care, beauty and product reviews but i have never really done a detailed post on my daily skin or beauty care routine. So here i am 🙂 starting a new section on my blog where i would do posts on my skin and hare care routine. I hope u guys like it 😀
All these products which i am going to mention here are the one which i use on a daily basis, for a natural makeup look. I have oily to combination skin which tends to get quiet oily during summers, so after having done my skin care (which ofcourse are different skin care products) i reach out for my make-up essentias which we are going to be talking today 🙂
So after having done my skin care (which typically consists of cleaning-moisturising-prepping) The first thing which i reach out to is
Lakme CC complexion care Cream
Price: Rs 240 /Available @ amazon for Rs 240.
I use Lakme cc cream instead of heavy foundations for my everyday make-up as i just want a little coverage with an even skin tone. This cc cream has a velvety texture which gives my skin a natural matte finish with a light to medium coverage. It does not feel heavy on my skin and gives it a refreshed and even skin tone. The shade i use is Beige which runs a little fair on my skin but gives a natural matte finish when set with some powder on top.
L’Oreal paris Mat Magique powder
Price: Rs 399 / Available @ amazon for Rs 299.
I use L’Oreal paris Mat Magique powder in the shade Golden Ivory to set my cc cream and make it last longer with a perfect matte finish. I love how this powder is satiny soft in texture and does not feel cakey or heavy on the skin. Its not at all dry and like any other good compact it minimizes my pores and smoothes out my skin giving it a natural-matte finish. I love this powder.
L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique
Price: Rs 275 /Available @amazon for Rs 181
Coming on to my eyes, I love some Kajal on my eyes every single day. The days when i do not apply some i look really pale and sick ;/ so i need to have a swipe or two to refresh and open up my eyes :). I love how Kajal magique easily glides on the waterline as well as on the lids without any tugging or dryness. I swipe it two-three times on my eyes to get a gorgeous kohl-ed look. It is a retractable kajal which does not need to be sharpen and can be used easily for an eyeliner as well. It stays in to my eyes for good 6 hours with just a little smudging in the inner corners. I love this kajal 🙂
Maybelline the Colossal Volume Express Mascara
Price: Rs 400 /Available @ amazon for Rs 375
I use Maybelline colossal volume express mascara which is my favourite waterproof mascara hands down. I love the volume and length it gives to my eyelashes without making them clumpy or stiff. It coats the lashes well in just a single pass but i go for two -three swipes for more volume and length. It dries up quickly so i don’t need to sit and wait around. I have fairly dense lashes so i love to have the boost of volume it gives to my eyes. As it is a waterproof one, it does takes time to clean up good, So i let the cotton pad sit on my lashes for few seconds to get it out completely.
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm
Price: Rs 175 /Available @ amazon for Rs 175
The One thing which i can not go out without is my lip balm. I need lip balm all the time and i apply it may be 20 times a day. I am a sucker for lip balms and have them in different types and brands. But my most favourite has to be the Maybelline Berry Crush Lip Balm which is a tinted lip balm with berry color. Its very light on skin and smooth in texture. It hydrates my lips good leaving a fresh berry tint behind. It also has SPF 16 and it smells Strawberries 😀 😀 I love baby Lips!
Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick – Mat2
Price: Rs 450 /Available @ amazon for Rs 441
The last product has to be a fun perky color lipstick which lifts up my whole look and my mood for the rest of the day. I use different shades according to my mood or weather or sometime just random. I really like this shade MAT-2 as it is such a bright-fun-girly Coraly pink color which kind of suits everything i wear casually and compliments my medium to fair complexion very well. It has a smooth creamy texture which applies on to the lips without tugging or dryness and gives enough coverage on just a single swipe. It does not dry out the lips but its not very hydrating either, So i always moisturise my lips well before applying this lipstick. It might look orangey on some skin tones but looks a bright pink on me 🙂 Oh! I love this shade :P.
So this is it! These are all my go to make up essentials which i reach out for a natural everyday makeup look. 🙂
I just now noticed how Maybelline kind of dominates in here 😉 Yesss I love maybelline 😀 But then who doesn’t 😛
