You know when you seem to run out of all your makeup at once? Then you’re digging through scraps trying to find something that works to get you through the next day or so until you can go restock? That happened to me last week and I felt like I had to buy so much! I always feel like it’s a lot of pressure to go pick out a new foundation or mascara, but I managed to find a few jems that I love in case you’re on the hunt for something new!
1. Elf Primer – Poreless
The original Elf Primer is great, but the poreless version is my favourite. It really does a great job of smoothing the skin and minimizing pores. I have found my pores have been bugging me a lot lately so this is an area I was looking to improve. If you are fine with your pores as usual you are probably good just sticking with the original. I find the poreless version has a bit of a tea tree oil smell to it. It isn’t unpleasant or overpowering at all however. This primer really makes me feel like my foundation just glides on my skin and helps it last a lot longer.
2. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation – Matte and Poreless
Once again I’m going with a poreless look at the moment. I’ve used the regular version of this foundation before and I liked it, but there is something so nice about the matte finish of this one. I find this foundation covers well without being too cakey or heavy on the skin. You can also build it up if you need more coverage and it lasts a long time. I also would like to try the dewy version of this foundation as I’m sure it would give a nice finish as well.
3. Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser
This is a tried and true classic for me. When I was first getting into makeup I bought this all the time and decided to pick it up again after all this time. I’m always so pleased at how well this product blends and how it covers my dark (and I mean dark) circles.
4. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
I didn’t realize how many Maybelline products I bought until right now! Haha! This is hands down my favourite drug store mascara however. I pretty much only use this one and have since my makeup artist for my wedding introduced me to it during my makeup trial. I find it makes my eyelashes look a lot longer and thicker and the wand gets all my little lashes as well.
5. NYX Liquid Eyeliner
I love this eyeliner. It goes on true black and makes wings easy. There’s not much to say about this one other than it does the job!
So these are the products I’ve been using lately. Do you guys have any you’d recommend? What should I try?
