I have heard the phrase “less is more” for quite some time. When it came to makeup and spray tanning, I definitely thought more is more – I wanted more bronzer, highlighter, concealer and mascara. I thought the more I would put on the better I looked. That all completely changed last month… When I noticed my hours started to reduce at work and I was seeing less people I did not understand why I was still putting on a full face of makeup every day. It was not the best for my skin and I absolutely hated washing my face at night. Therefore, I decided to make a change. I first started by completely cutting out mascara and went from there. I feel like I have a good “no makeup, makeup look” down so I decided to share!
*If you want to see me in action putting everything on head over to my Instagram to watch my IGTV! In the video you can see it took me seven minutes to do my whole face but in real life it literally only takes me about three minutes!
If you have been following me for a while you know the Fresh moisturizer is my everything. I love it so much and have gone through at least like five jars in my lifetime. I also have linked the Clinique one below because I also like this one and have used several jars of it too!
I have always struggled with acne and acne scars so finding a good concealer has always been a challenge for me. Today, I used my Laura Mercier duo, I have used this one for a while and I love it! I also have linked a couple more that I use on a daily basis, including the Makeup Forever concealer I usually use for under my eyes.
For a VERY long long time I have used the It Cosmetics CC cream. I absolutely still love that one and own several tubes of it in different colors. I plan to go back to that one when I start wearing more makeup. It has great coverage for being a CC cream! For now, I don’t need that much coverage so I switched to the Dr. Jart BB cream. This one is so lightweight while still providing a tad bit of coverage.
In my IGTV I did not use powder today, but I wear it sometimes! This is my favorite one to wear.
Bronzer will always be my true love!!! I love wearing it and it makes me feel so good LOL I have a couple favorites I have linked below.
This is my other true love, highlighter. The more the better is what I always used to say. I have toned it down a little for now but trust me once I start wearing a full face of makeup again I am going straight back to being a literal highlighter. In the video, I used my NARS highlighter and like it but I absolutely love the color of my Becca one!
I have focused more on my brows lately due to not having much else to focus on LOL. I love drawling in my brows and making them look good!
