If you’re just as obsessed with makeup as I am, then you know that choosing five makeup products isn’t easy. It’s like kind of like asking a mother who her favourite child is…..IMPOSSIBLE.
Being a VIP Rouge member at Sephora, (I swear I don’t have a problem, except my mom probably thinks otherwise) I have my share of makeup at home. While there are some that I love and swear by, there also some that I wish I never bought. However today, I’m definitely going to talk about the loves of my life. They’re usually my go to products and I know I can definitely trust them to do the job.
1. URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Liquid Foundation ($40)
This is a recently new product that I purchased because it was time I made that switch from my summer glow tone, to my natural pale fall/winter tone (sad). I definitely love any foundation that can last on my face all day and keeps it looking matte. Yes this product is a little pricey, but you really only need one pump of foundation for full coverage, so you know this will last you a while! I’m always scared trying new foundations, however I'm definitely glad I tried this one. It does what it says; full coverage, waterproof, matte finish, and lasts all day long.
2. DIOR - Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($31)
Being a huge fan of eyeshadow and metallic colours, this was the perfect product for me. I usually add this shimmer on top of a bronze/brown lid. This works beautifully for a subtle or even a dramatic smokey eye!. It gives it an amazing shimmer and perfect for fall! This product comes with a little brush, however for a good product build up, I dab it on my lid using my finger (much more effective).
3. URBAN DECAY - Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder ($32)
If you’re like me who loves a good highlighter, then this product will be your holy grail. I have this in two shades however I’ve leaning towards the “Luminous” one. It has a champagne tone to it which matched perfectly with my new foundation. It has an extra shimmery sparkle to it which I love. Even though this is more of a powder, I set this with some setting spray and I'm good to go for the whole day. If you want your highlight to pigmented and shine to the Gods, then I definitely recommend this for you!
4. L’OREAL - True Match Mineral Powder ($15)
Feeling matte matte matte. Well if you haven't noticed yet, I’m obsessed with keeping my makeup and facing looking nice and matte, without it looking cakey. This drugstore find is my secret weapon to having flawless finished makeup. It gives you up to 16 hours of oil free coverage and gives your face a soft, matte complexion. Sometimes when I’m not feeling the whole face of makeup look, I usually apply some of this on my face and I’m good to go!
5. OLE HENRIKSEN - Grease Relief Cleansing Cloths: Pore Refining
As much as I love putting on makeup, taking it all off at the end of the day is probably the most satisfying thing ever. I recently discovered this cloths and my life is forever changed. Not only does this remove my makeup with just one cloth, it also exfoliates, deeply cleanses and dissolves dead skin cells. I absolutely love these cloths because it has purifying eucalyptus in them and leaves my face feeling so fresh and clean. This cloth has two sides; a rougher side that exfoliates the skin and a softer side which leaves the skin feeling nice and smooth.
I definitely recommend trying some of these products and adding them to your everyday makeup routine, you definitely won’t be disappointed! Let me know what your favourite makeup items are! I love trying out new things and experimenting with new products. The world of makeup is full of little hidden treasures…..
