Beauty Buzz: My Beauty Basics

I don’t know if you ever remember me telling you how inexperienced I was when it came to makeup. I honestly learn how to do something with each and every product I get my hands on. In fact, I look up a lot of YouTube tutorials for help. I’m not ashamed to admit it. Today, after months of trying different products, I’ve finally found my basics.

My beauty basics consist of items that will create, what I think is a simple and clean look for me. I purposely didn’t include eyeshadows or lipsticks, cause those change daily for me. These items are pretty much consistent for me.

ARTISTRY Creme LX and Eye Creme: I don’t know what it is, but I can definitely tell a difference in my skin when I use this moisturizer and eye creme. It’s the first product that goes on my face. I could do without the scent, but I’ll deal with it because…well…it works. Find it here. 

CLINIQUE Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup in Neutral: I think I like this so much because it stays pretty matte in even the hottest conditions. I’ve been wearing it for the past few days in this heat wave and it’s doing great. Find it here.

L’OREAL PARIS Voluminous Fals Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer: Thank goodness for mascara that lengthens and thickens without clumping. And it’s the blackest black you’ll find. It’s NEW too! Find it here.

NEUTROGENA Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector in Medium: In this day and age of stress and no sleeping, certain bloggers tend to get dark circles under their eyes. This helps without being too noticeable. Find it here.

MARY KAY Cream Blush in Cranberry: The cream blush seems to stay on longer and because of my skin tone, this color works perfectly for me. Find it here.

L’OREAL PARIS Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Black Brown: Love this color for that natural look. I only wear black for a more dramatic look, which is rare. It actually stays on too. Find it here.

MAC Eye Brows in Stud:  For years and years, people always offered to color in my eyebrows and I always said no. Then one day, I tried it and now…I can’t go outside without them colored in. LOL! Thank goodness for MAC! It stays on great and never smears. Find it here. 

I want to know what your daily beauty basics are!
