Unexperienced? I think not.

I just wanted to throw this out there. Once you start reading my blog you’ll notice I don’t use all this pricey stuff. Yes, I’ve tried some of it but in my opinion cheaper is sometimes better or at least just as good. This blog is for your every day girl. A girl who may be in college, working a part-time job and living pay-check to pay-check, a girl who is like me.

I’ve never really had to tackle that stage in life where you have bad skin, thank god. Fingers crossed that day never comes. People are always asking me what kind of makeup I use. Not to be rude by no means but make-up doesn’t fix/hide everything, lets be real people! I’m letting you know what works for me but don’t get discouraged if it doesn’t work for you! EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT!

 

THE BASICS.

I’ve tried HUNDREDS of different kinds of make-up. Till this day I haven’t found any that I love more than these select few. Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse, this stuff is just amazing! It is so light and just blends into your skin so well. Okay girls, you know the saying LESS IS BEST and it couldn’t be more true when it comes to this stuff. Literally this stuff should last you a long time because the smallest amount can go for miles. Another favorite of mine is L’Oreal True Match Foundation. This is another light foundation. I’ve gotten the most compliments while wearing this stuff!

To keep my mousse foundation in place and to keep it from rubbing off easy I always use a powder to go over it. I’ve tried so many powders but Cover Girl fresh complexion powder is AMAZING. Seriously, this is the only word for it. For me it covers up everything and I mean everything! There’s a little make-up pad that comes with it but I never use it. I feel like it makes my make-up look streaky. I use a regular powder brush and just apply it on lightly.

Over the years I’ve learned so much about make-up. I’m no expert by no means buy I’ve definitely learned the huge dos and donts. One thing I absolutely can’t stand is seeing a girl who wears eye liner and throughout the day it just smears everywhere. It runs all in the corner of her eye or underneath, it drives me crazy! I’m very petite and as you can assume my facial features are tiny. My eyes can’t hold regular eye liner because it just runs right off. Girls, if you’re like me I have found a solution! It’s called Maybelline EyeStudio. Thus stuff will stay in through everything! It comes with its own applicator also. It’s a type of gel eyeliner and I’m in love with it. I’ve tried liquid eye liner as well as stick and I’m just not crazy about it. The gel has work wonders for me. I use the blackest black but there’s are all kinds of colors to choose from.

  1. I agree, inexpensive brands are often just as good as the more pricey ones! I definitely don’t see the need to splash out on high end mascara when Maybelline always have such great ones!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog!
