How are you guys doing? I hope you enjoyed my last skin care routine blog.
So people have been asking me about my makeup routine, the products that I use and how do I go about it! So, finally I’m doing this! Listing down my favorite make up routine products for you guys. Obviously there are a few things while selecting the product that you should keep in mind i.e. your skin colour, and your skin type.
My skin colour is wheatish, and my skin type is dry, sometimes it gets oily too. So, I use products according to that.
I shop my cosmetics at NYKAA.COM. It’s like you have everything under one roof!
With almost all products starting from Make up, Skin Care, Health care, Wellness, Herbal etc. You name it and you have it there.
I usually get my make up from there! As I know what all I’m looking for, so it becomes easy for me to select and drop it on my shopping cart. Plus, they deliver it within no time.
Guess what! It’s NYKAA’S MEGA SHOPPING WEEK! How cool is that! This is the perfect time to get your stuff in bulk.
That is why I decided to put my basic make up essentials that I use almost daily, at this time of the year. Get your hands on these products worth the money
Are you’ll excited? :D
1.BB CREAM: For my daily makeup I start off with BB cream, if I have shoots or I’m going for a party, I usually start off with a Primer (MAC PREP + PRIME) and then the BB cream. Sometimes I do apply SUNSCREEN before putting BB Cream, but since BB Creams already have Sun Protection Factor I usually skip sunscreen and directly jump on to BB cream.
These are my two picks:
(Click on the product name or the picture. I have attached direct links for you guys to shop or see the product description on Nykka.com)
-L'Oreal Paris True Match BB Cream: NI IVORY
-Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream: 03 Natural
I use these two, I like the Maybelline more though! Oh yes it’s cheaper than the Loreal BB Cream but I like the coverage and the texture more.
Right now you get that for Rs.160/- at NYKAA’S MEGA SALE! Isn’t that awesome! :D
2.CONCEALER: I don’t use this every time, only when I have dark spots or any marks or pimples, my concealer comes in action.
-Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer: Buff
3.MINERAL FOUNDATION: After the first 3 steps, I use a Mineral Foundation that blends the BB Cream and Concealer making my skin look flawless and natural.
It sets everything in place and this Mineral Foundation is my favorite! I cannot do without this product.
-L'Oreal Paris True Match Minerals: W3 Golden Beige
4.CONTOURING: I love contouring my face, atleast my cheekbones; it just enhances your features and structures your face.
So for that I prefer a mineral foundation, which is darker to my skin tone, sometimes I also use this BB glow stick in a darker shade.
-NYX HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder: Sand Beige
-Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Stick: MCGBBS Fawn
5.KAJAL / LINER: This again depends on my look and what I’m wearing on that particular day. It’s not something I put everyday. But these two products are always there in my bag incase of an emergency, if I have to rush somewhere.
-Maybelline The Colossal Liner – Black
-Maybelline The Colossal Kohl Kajal – Turquoise
6.EYE SHADOW: Again, not everyday but this is the basic one that I use whenever I’m applying eye shadow for some depth. I’m not fond of coloured shadows so I have got this one in two shades, one is golden and brown for a subtle look and the other is grey and black for smoky eyes. Plus they have given the process of how to apply it, which shade where, what to highlight, everything! So it’s pretty easy and you get a glam look in say like 2 mins.
-Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow:
7.MASCARA: Okay so this is something that I never miss and I have it on whenever I step outside. I just cannot do without it.
This one’s my current favorite right now; though it’s not waterproof I really like how it looks on my lashes. Many of you stunners have asked me about my mascara! So here it is! :D
Don’t miss this during sale guys; you are going to love it!
-L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara
8.BLUSH: This is the second last step of my everyday make up before putting my lipstick. This is the only blush that I use right now; it’s so reasonable and gives an amazing finish to your cheeks.
-Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush: Creamy Cinnamon
9.LIPSTICKS: Lipstick depends on my outfit and my mood. Also, there's no favorite or a particular brand that I use. I own MAC, REVLON, MAYBELLINE, and COLORESSNCE etc. But I’m going to put down some of my favorites from NYKAA that you shouldn’t miss during sales.
-Maybelline Superstay 14hr Lipstick:
Wine And Forever 100,
Eternal Rose 020,
Stay With Me Coral
-Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm:
-Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Alert: P0W3
