In this post, I am going to talk about my current makeup routine! I love makeup and I want to share with you what I do every morning in order to get ready for the day. First, I find it very important to wash my face with a gentle cleanser. The cleanser that I use that has been great for my sensitive skin is Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser. This leaves my skin feeling clean. I like to do it in the morning and night. Especially in the morning in case there was any leftover residue from the makeup the day before that didn’t get washed off. This ensures that my skin is free from any dirt and I have a clean surface to work with.
I then move on to my makeup. To start, I apply a basic Pond’s Dry Skin Cream. This is very hydrating for my skin and also very oily. This is the one moisturizer I have found that has not caused my skin to break out in any way. It also takes care of the severe dryness I struggle with on my skin. I try to not think of it as being too oily but rather moisturizing to my skin. I then apply a very light layer of foundation. I use the L’oreal Lumi Foundation in the color W-6. Next, I use concealer under my eyes and in my problem areas. The concealer that I used is the L’oreal True Match Crayon Concealer in the color W6-7-8. I set everything with a Revlon ColorStay translucent powder.
The eyes are the main part of my routine. I love eyeliner and playing around with different shapes on my eyes. I used Lakme Liquid Eyeliner and it is my holy grail. It is a foreign company and my family brings it from India for me every time they come. My classic look is a winged eyeliner. I then curl and apply mascara to my lashes. My current and favorite mascara is the Maybelline Falsies in the color blackest black. I always get waterproof no matter what because my eyes tend to water a lot and I do not want my mascara to budge!If I’m feeling fancy, I will line and apply lipstick on my lips. The latest favorite lipstick is the Laura Mercier lipstick in the color An Affair. If it’s just a natural day, I will just apply a light layer of Vaseline to my lips and be on my way! And that completes my everyday makeup routine. Hope you guys enjoyed!
