I don’t know about you, but being in college has definitely made me lazier when it comes to getting ready. However, I put a little effort every now and then to make it look like I got my life together and thanks to these Sephora products I pull it off! I will also provide the links so you can check out the price, more decriptions+benefits, and ingredients. All these products are cruelty-free!
First up is the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. This baby primes my face, smoothes it out, minimizes pores, and is oil-free!! It’s a little pricey at $36 compared to other primers, but I promise it is worth it. www.smashbox.com/product
After I finished applying the primer I just apply my foundation Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation. I have tried Estee Lauder, NARS, Sephora Collection, Makeup Forever, Fenty, Born this Way, Naked, Too Faced, and Kat Von D. These foundations just did not satisfy me enough until I tried Tarte! This foundation gives you a natural look, does not feel heavy or is cakey looking, and is ideal for oily skin types! tartecosmetics.com/amazonianclay
Once I’m done blending the foundation, I begin to fill in my eyebrows a tad bit. I have full naturally shaped eyebrows, so I don’t do a lot of filling or shaping but when I do I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow and the brush that comes along with it. anastasiabeverlyhills.com/brush & anastasiabeverlyhills.com/dipbrow
Next, I add a little contour to my cheeks by using Bronzer. I use the Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer by Too Faced. Sephora.com/toofaced
Finally, the eyes & lips! I LOVE natural-ish palettes and God knows I got so many of them but Tarte pallets have been my #1 lately. Especially the Tartelette Toasted Palette. tartecosmetics.com/tarteletteHighly recommend! For the lips, I use my go-to Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick. I have been using this since Junior Prom (3 years ago) because it literally is so amazing. I don’t really like Matte because after a while it makes my lips feel and look crusty but this is a perfect balance of both matte and liquid. too faced.com/lip-makeup
Before I end, I want to say that I am not a makeup expert or trying to be. This for everyone who is like me and just wants a simple 15min routine for the day. Also, please make an effort to shop cruelty-free. It’s not too hard considering most brands are. ❤
