How much makeup do you usually wear?

When it comes to just chilling at home, doing errands, or commuting to school for one class, I always do my skin care and lip balm regardless while ignoring makeup.

On the other hand, I alternate between full face makeup and a “light” makeup look (skipping colour corrector, foundation, blush, and contour).

Here are the products I use:

Skin Care (I always do this in the morning, and again at night after my makeup is removed)

Facial Cleanser: First Aid Beauty’s Face Cleanser

Given that I have fairly oily and acne-prone skin, ensuring that the skin care I use keeps my face without oils without drying out my skin is crucial. After having oil producing issues with using the Clean & Clear line’s cleansers, switching to this cleanser REALLY helped with acne break outs and such.

Moisturizer: I alternate between Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and Garnier’s SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream

For oily skin types like me, gel creams are a god send for those who need moisture without clogging pores.

Make Up Products

Primer: Rimmel’s Stay Matte Primer

Colour Corrector: NYX’s Concealer Jar (in Orange)

Setting Powder: Well this one is kind of weird because I usually do this step before doing foundation as a way to lock it in place. In addition, the product I use for setting is technically a matte bronzer, but since it is exactly my skin tone, I found it better as a “matte” setting powder. So yeah, I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer for this step.

Foundation: For school and everyday “basic” wear, I usually go for L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro-Matte or NARS’s Velvet Matte Tinted Moisturizer. When I’m going somewhere fancy like an event or such, I pull out the internet’s favourite Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation.

Concealer: I use L’Oreal’s True Match Superblendable Crayon Concealer for spot-concealing areas that wasn’t covered up by the foundation. Meanwhile, for highlighting my under eyes, I use NYX’s HD Photogenic Concealer Wand.

Eyeliner: Kat von D Tattoo Liner. One of my all-time favourite felt-tip pen liners out there. Allows you to perfect that cat eye.

Mascara: Maybelline Lash Sensational. An old favourite.

Contour and Highlight: I use NYX’s 3 Steps to Sculpt Palette (the contour shade) and NYX’s Away We Glow Illuminating Powder (in Shimmer Thrill)

Blush: NYX’s High Definition Blush (in Beach Babe). I use it as a transition colour between the contour and highlight to soften the colours together.

Lipstick: Before applying lipstick, I put on lip balm to prevent my lips from drying. I always gravitate towards darker colours like browns, plums, mauves, and deep reds. The colour I would use would depend on the outfit I’m wearing that day. A lip colour that I wear A LOT is Tarte’s Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint (in Acid Wash).

and last but not least, setting spray: NYX’s Matte Finish Setting Spray

Here is how I would usually look whenever I’m wearing full face makeup.
