Lately, I’ve noticed a major change in the beauty industry based on how women and young girls actually utilize makeup. For many, makeup used to be the key element in enhancing one’s beauty but most importantly to hide flaws!
However, today, I’m noticing that more and more people see makeup as a form of creative expression and a way of completely transforming one’s look. I mean, search the hashtag “beauty” or “makeup” on Instagram and what do you see!? A sea of what seems to be millions of Kylie Jenner’s flooding your feed. With just pounds of makeup, literally anyone can transform their faces, creating the perfect “Kylie Jenner” look. It’s quite extraordinary, actually. Today, makeup is more than merely what it stands for; to “make one up.” Instead, it’s becoming pop culture’s tool to changing not only the way people look but how they feel as well.
For me, makeup remains as it always has. I don’t wear much makeup nor do I use it to transform my looks. Rather, makeup is more of a way of merely enhancing the natural beauty hidden beneath my natural features. Sometimes, we all need that little extra help to bring our beauty to light and if you were ever curious as to what products I use to achieve my natural, everyday makeup look, then here you go!
If you’d like to see me do a everyday, summer makeup routine, please do let me know! xo
What’s In My Makeup Bag!
The perfect base! Not too light, not too heavy. Allows for building up for coverage.
Super light concealer, with just the perfect amount of coverage. Keeps flaws hidden without weighing down the face.
Sets makeup unbelievably! Pairs great with the bareMinerals concealer.
P.S. For more on my obsession with bareMinerals click here!
A very recent purchase! Use it before applying your eyebrow pencil to ensure longer lasting brows!
Another recent purchase and I absolutely adore it! Allows for such great control over the shape of my brows!
A Ciarra Lorren staple! I’ve been using this bronzer for AGES and never plan on changing anytime soon.
Another great bronzing product! I actually use this for both highlighting and for eyeshadow. I find this shimmer brick really enhances my eyes better than any other eyeshadow.
P.S. I use the color “Bronze.”
What’s a look without a little blush! Love this Clarins’ blusher to some color to my look. Provides such a natural glow! I use the shade “Sunset Coral.”
Eyeliner is a great way to bring attention to your eyes and Lancôme’s Artliner makes creating that tricky wing 100 times easier.
I can not achieve my look without this staple. It is forever my go-to mascara as I’ve never witnessed a mascara that lengthens and adds volume to my lashes quite like this one. I NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT IT.
