Day #6: Make-up Must Haves
I'm not huge on makeup..and by that I mean I rarely wear it. If I put on any makeup on a school day..it's just mascara. Nail polish and chapstick, on the other hand? That's more my type of beauty product!
Favorite Nail polish:
Essie Bikini So Teeny.
It's the perfect opaque light blue. Perfect for spring and summer...and I've been known to wear it in the winter, too (like right now...)
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation.
I have trouble finding a foundation that matches my skin because I'm fairly pale, but I don't want my foundation to wash me out even more. My friend Abby has the foundation, and I tested it and it turned out her shade was basically perfect for me! I couldn't have scurried off to the drugstore any faster! Plus, it's affordable on my college budget.
Benefit "They're Real!"
So this, on the other hand, is not friendly on my college budget. I'm still using a deluxe sample that I received from Sephora, but I may have to splurge on this once that sample is complete. It both lengthens and volumizes my lashes..and since mascara is often the only makeup I wear, it really makes my eyes pop!
Favorite Eye Shadow Palette:
Too Faced Natural Eye.
As I said, I don't often wear makeup. But if I am going out or getting dressed up, I do put on a bit of eye shadow. This palette is perfect because it has both light neutral shades, but it also includes darker shades to create a smoky eye. The palette also comes with cards to demonstrate how to create specific looks, which is a great help to me because I'm not so great with makeup application!
Favorite Lip Product (for the moment, atleast):
Nivea Lip Butter (Vanilla & Macadamia).
The winter months are harsh on my skin..especially my lips! My dorm room has a really dry heating system, so my lips have been cracking like crazy! This lip butter has completely solved that problem. It's really thick, so I don't wear it during the day. But I apply it at night while I'm doing homework or before I go to bed, and it keeps the cracking to a minimum. During the day, I use Nivea Kiss of Moisture lip balm!
