These are the make-up products I have been using this Spring and will carry on using during the Summer months.
Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base – Sometimes, when I do get a red spot or two, I panic because I am afraid it will show under my make-up. However, I put this on underneath my foundation and after I put on my moisturiser to block the redness from showing. It is rather heavy so I just put on a small amount and it does the job.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation – This is my go-to foundation for Spring/Summer as opposed to the other full coverage Double Wear foundation which is perfect for Autumn/Winter. Double Wear Light is great for oily skin and does not leave any shine as it is a very matte foundation. It feels very light and natural which is why it is great to wear in hot weather. I am usually skeptical about certain foundations as I do have acne-prone skin and always afraid they will break me out, however this foundation is non-acnegenic and non-comedegenic so therefore it does not clog any pores and it does not break me out at all. This is perfect for Spring/Summer.
Estee Lauder Disappear Smoothing Creme Concealer – I love this concealer and I use it under my eyes to cover any dark circles. It works really well.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – I rarely use drugstore products but this concealer is absolutely amazing when trying to cover up spots and pimples. It does not break me out at all and I have been using it for years. The only problem I have with this is that I have to keep reapplying this throughout the day. All in all, this is a great concealer to cover up spots and blemishes as well as dark circles around the eyes.
Urban Decay Naked Palette – I LOVE the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I only have the first one and I use it on a daily basis. I will be getting the Naked Palette 2 very soon. I usually use ‘Toasted’ on the crease and the lid and then I use ‘Sin’ under the brown bone and along the inner corner and the outer corner. This eyeshadow look gives a nice effect on the eyes when combining with eyeliner.
MAC Smolder Kohl Eyeliner – I love this eyeliner. The only thing I do not like about pencil eyeliners is that I have to sharpen them a lot and with my signature eye look that I do, the pencil needs to be very and I mean very sharp. My usual eye look is a cat-eye Arabian style look – Kim Kardashian, Hafia Wehbe style etc… Quite heavy in the Autumn/Winter but I do tone it down in the Spring/Summer.
Dior Diorshow Art Pen – I usually use this to enhance my eye make-up a little bit more by adding a flick on the outer corner of my eyes. This pen is really good and provides a very thin flick.
Maybelline Volum Express Mascara Falsies – Again, I rarely use drugstore products but I have been using this Maybelline mascara for a few months now and have been loving it. This is great for a full lash look with a fake lash effect to it, which I love.
MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick – I always go for a red lipstick but recently during Spring, I have gravitated towards pink lipsticks. I have been using MAC’s Candy Yum Yum lipstick which is a beautiful bright pink colour. It has a very matte finish and stays on all day.
