Working full-time, on-the-go and on a tight schedule is not easy when it comes to beauty routines. As I like to look put together everyday, I need to stick to an easy makeup look that does not require too much of my time. For the occasion, I partnered with essence cosmetics to bring you my everyday essential products as well as a few of my tricks and tips. I am really excited to share with you the products I have been using lately as they are easy to use, give amazing results and are incredibly budget-friendly!
First things first: the eyes. I have been loving the How To Make Nude Eyes Eyeshadow Palette as the colours are incredibly versatile. If you know me well, you know that I simply cannot get enough of warm neutrals. I mainly use the three top shades for my everyday look and double An Eye on Apricot as my brow bone, inner corners and nose highlight. It gives such a beautiful and natural glow!
essence cosmetics mascaras are some of my favourites at the drugstore. I personally love the Rock n’ Doll, the Rock n’ Doll Crazy XXXL Volume and the Lash Princess False Lash Effect mascaras. They are all so amazing at defining, separating, lengthening and volumizing the lashes. I apply 2 coats to get the perfect look. Make sure to wait until the first coat is completely dry before applying the second one!
Now onto the complexion, I am a big blush and bronzer lover. I found my perfect pairing with the Blush Up in Heat Wave and the Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder in Natural. Combined, they give the most beautiful sunkissed and healthy glow to the skin. The powders blend out so beautifully and are nicely pigmented. I also to like to use the bronzer as a transition eyeshadow to deepen the crease and tie the eyelook with my base makeup!
Last but not least: the lips. Depending on my mood, I either choose to wear a light pink or a darker mauvy nude. For the first option, I always go for the Long Lasting Lip Liners in Be A Game-Changer and A Girl’s Dream. I then apply the Long Lasting Lipstick in Love Me. The perfect everyday feminine lip combo! For the days I am feeling a little bolder, I love to combine the Satin Mauve lip liner with the Cool Nude lipstick. This one is my all-time favourite. Always make sure to protect your lips first! I have been loving lip oils lately and this Prettifying Lip Oil is amazing to hydrate and protect the lips.
