daily makeup

Since I work from home, alone most days, I don’t always put on makeup. Typically I’ll go running and in the summer down to the pool for a few hours, so I just don’t see the point in putting on a full face everyday. I like to give my skin and eyelashes a break as often as possible. When I do put makeup on, these are the six products I almost always use.

Six Makeup Products that I use Daily:

bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener — This is a miracle product. Takes those dark circles right away and makes you look like you got eight hours of sleep even if you didn’t.

Lancome Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer — Personally I wear the Clair II shade. I’ve been using this concealer for years. Years. It’s the perfect consistency of creamy for me. It’s light enough to make me feel like I’m not wearing heavy makeup, yet it covers really well.

Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek and Lip Stain — I only use this on my cheeks, but it’s a product that I’ve used for years. Since it was made for a dancer in the 70s, it’s the perfect way to flush your cheeks in the summer because it won’t come off if you sweat!

NARS Orgasm Blush — This is a classic blush. It’s the perfect shade for almost anyone.

Lancome Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara — Another product I’ve used for years. People always ask me about my eyelashes. I’m blessed with long and still fairly thick (real) eyelashes. This Hypnose mascara has been a favorite of mine for years. I always get compliments when I wear it.

Stila In The Light Palette — I have to credit Jacey with this find. She mentioned in a post that it’s the only eyeshadow palette she uses, so on my next trip to Sephora I checked it out and bought it on the spot. I too love it, and actually think I also want this matte eyeshadow version.
