1. Nars Tinted Moisturizer in Finland $43 // Laura Mercier Tinter Moisturizer in Nude
Over the years I have been opting for foundations that are lighter in consistency and coverage. I found that I was really just using the product to even out my skin, but I have nice enough skin that I donâ€™t need to put a mask over it. I am still not used to how transparent just using a moisturizer is, so I do layer it a bit till I feel comfortable. I love how my real skin shows through and still looks very natural and dewey.
2. Kat Von D Waterproof Eyeliner in Trooper (Black) $19
Ohhhhhhh the search is over. Gone are the days of dipping a brush into a pot, spreading it out on a tissue, drawing out a line, redrawing a wing, and cleaning up the mess. This little pen is the perfect eyeliner, it has a fine tip for whatever cat-eye you may be feeling that day and you can throw it in your bag to go if you plan on going out later! While this formula says waterproof, I often do not need more than soapy water to get it completely off. I donâ€™t mind that at all—
3. NYX Extra Creamy Lipstick in Paris $4
This is a more fuschia version of my favorite MAC lipstick, Pink Plaid- for a fraction of the cost. The formula is even creamier than most and easy to apply without any base on your lips, and doesnâ€™t dry them out later. The way this product wears throughout the day is quite nice, but eating and drinking will mean reapplication. The cost makes this guilt free ðŸ™‚
4. Moisturizer: Lancome Regenerie Lift Multi-Action $117/ Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Broad Spectrum SPF 20 $48
Always good to use: I usually remember to apply before bed but also as another layer of sunscreen on my face. Sometimes the combination with sunscreen makes my foundation a little transparent but I like to call that the youthful look. The Lancome one smells amazing and feels refreshing to wear on its own. Iâ€™ve used both of these for years and still love them! I packed two travel size containers for my RTW trip- made the right choice!
