I started using make-up when I was 14 years old , but the only things that I was using were mascara and powder . At that age , i didn`t actually knew the purpose of make-up . I was just trying to look cute and nice all the time . As the time passed by , I reached the age of 17 and you know that almost everybody is having a 18 birthday party , so that was the time when I first started using foundation and eyeshadow , contouring and highlight and all the things that belong to make-up .
I was practicing on myself all the time . I was watching youtube videos , to learn tricks and tips on how to achieve the perfect make-up look . I never took a class , and I`m not sure if I ever will , but if the opportunity presents itself , I for sure not gonna pass by it .
Let me tell you a little bit about the products that I use .
1. First thing before using foundation , I use a moustruasing cream from La Roche-Posay . I have been using this cream for almost one year now , it makes my skin smoother and ready for foundation. Also I have sensitive skin and this is the only cream that calms my skin when it`s irritated .
2. Foundation .
My go to foundation is L`Oreal Paris True Match . This is and has been my favorite foundation ever . I have been using it for almost three years now and it never disappointed me . I use this almost every day . There are times when I feel like I need to change the foundation a little bit , and my skin needs to take a break from that foundation , so when that happens , I use L`oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint , it has less coverage than True Match , witch is perfect if I want to create a No Make-up Make-up Look .
This summer I decided to try on two BB-creams and I ended up loving them . One is from Rimmel London BB Cream Matte and one from Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream .
In all these three years , I have been using one concealer and that is the Bourjois Paris Correcting Concealer . I tried different concealers , but this one I liked the most so I sticked with it
3 . Powder and Contouring Powder
Now here , depends on where I`m going and how much coverage do I need .
My go to face powders are Stay Matte Pressed Powder by Rimmel London and Essence All About Matte Compact Powder , for an every day look .
For a night out or an event I love using Pressed Powder by Elf , it gives me more coverage .
For contouring I`m using Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder by Elf , btw. I hate using blush .
My brows are my life . It`s the part that I love the most about make-up .
My brows are naturally thick , I plug and cut them myself . I once did the mistake to go to a salon , and I remember asking that women not to ruin my shape , and she made my brows so thin I cried so so much that day , and since then I never went to a salon again . I love my brows way to much to let anybody touch them .
What I use :
Eyebrow Marker Pen in the shade 01 by Kallos Cosmetics
Ever since I found this product , I haven`t been using anything else to fill in my brows. This product has become my holy grail product . It makes my brows look so so so natural and soft , it`s amazing . And I use Eyebrow Treat and Tame by Elf to keep them in place .
5 . Eyes
* Eyeliner – Dynamic Menow-pro liquid eyeliner . This has become my holy grail eyeliner ever, I use this everyday , my eyeliner is always on point . This product has never disappointed me . I takes me about 5 minutes to do both my eyes and it lasts all day , actually till the next morning if you don`t take it off . I love it !
* Mascara – Avon Super Shock
I have been using this mascara for many years now , it`s my favorite .
* eyeshadow – everything that comes in handy
some of my favorites
7. Brushes & Spnges
– Blending Eye Brush
-Lip Defining Brush
– Studio Blending Brush
– Powder Brush
*Oriflame Blanding Brush
The last thing is make-up remover .
First I use Make-up remover wipes to take off most of my make-up . Next I use Nivea 3 in 1 micellar cleansing water around my eyes . Than I wash my face with Bioderma Purifying cleansing foaming gel , and the last thing I do is use La Roche-Posay solution micellaire physiologique on a cotton pad to make sure all of my make-up is gone .
Than apply moisturising cream and I`m ready for bed .
I hope y`all enjoy it and See you on my next blog post .
Lots of kisses !!!
