What's on my face lately??


I've been pretty much wearing the same products for the past 2-3 weeks, which is pretty rare for me because I get bored of products easily. Especially when it comes to face products, but I've been absolutely loving the combination of products I've been using on my face lately.

It may seem like a million products, but I use everything pretty sparingly.

PRIMER: Reviva Labs Makeup Primer applied all over with my fingers or my Ecotools Foundation Brush.
CONCEALER: Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light applied under my eyes.
FOUNDATION: Since I'm a bit light right now, I mix foundations and it's the best combo ever! I first dot Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation in #10 on all areas of my face and blend with my Sigma 180 brush. It's too light, but the next foundation is a little too dark, so once I add it, it will match perfectly. I then use one pump of Chanel Vitalumiere in Beige, again dotting it to all areas of my face and then blending with my Sigma 180. It warms up my foundation nicely and gives my skin the perfect amount of coverage and luminosity. I also think it helps my foundation stay on longer. Many people complain that Vitalumiere only lasts 4 hours, but this combo lasts me all day. I've actually gotten a few compliments on my skin when I've been out lately, and that's pretty much a first for me.
HIGHLIGHT: MAC Honey Rose Magically Cool Liquid Powder applied to my cheeks with my Sigma Duo Fiber Brush (before powder). I've been using this every day since I bought it!
BRONZER: Chanel Bronze Universel/Soleil Tan de Chanel applied with my Coastal Scents Tapered Duo Fiber Brush to my cheeks and forehead for a bronzed glow.
POWDER: Since I'm not using so much foundation (seems like a lot, but the coverage is a light-medium) I like using a large powder brush and dusting my face with MAC Studio Fix Powder in C3. Sometimes I skip this.
BLUSH: I haven't been wearing blush lately because the Magically Cool Powder gives me a little color, but some days I do want a little extra color and I've been reaching for MAC Pinch O Peach for a very natural flush.
EYE SHADOW: I haven't been wearing much on the eyes, as I've been mostly concentrating on perfecting my skin. A soft wash of MAC Brule all over the lid and MAC Cork in my crease and smudged on my upper and lower lash line is all.
MASCARA: Covergirl Lash Blast in Black.
BROWS: I've mostly been using MAC Espresso throughout June, but I misplaced it and so I've been using MAC Eyebrows in Spiked and MAC Cork. Spiked is a bit harsh and Cork is a bit light, so a light combo of both works great. To finish them off, I've been using ELF Treat & Tame in Dark. 
LIP LINER: Revlon Colorstay Lip Liner in Nude. It's basically the same color as my lips, so it works great when I'm only wearing lip gloss.
LIPSTICK: Believe it or not, I haven't been wearing much lipstick in the past couple of weeks (ever since I've had my new Chanel lip gloss and Essence lip gloss), but I have been wearing MAC Creme Cup when I want to take my lip gloss up a notch.
LIP GLOSS: I've been alternating between Essence Stay with Me Lipgloss and Chanel Mica Glossimer. Both look great over a lipstick or alone!

Any newly discovered products you love and can't get enough of? Let me know in the comments so I can get hooked too! :)

  4. Lovely routine; It is great to get back to basics and figure out what is working and what isn't, especially when it comes to creating a flawless face. Lips and eyes are just extra when you have an impeccable complexion :)

  11. Have you tried any of Tarina Tarantino's line? It's amazing! I was hesitant, but so glad I tried a few things...the eyeshadows are amazing; beautiful packaging, awesome pigmentation, and they go on and STAY on silky smooth.

  19. I also use the exact same concealer it surely does the job of hiding those eye bags.

  20. I recently got Botox since there were so many wrinkles in my face that even make-up can't hide it.
