Hey everyone! Today I thought it would be cool to do a ‘Get Ready With Me’ blog style. I’ll be sharing my make-up routine and I will try and put up all the links for the products. I unfortunately couldn’t find all the items online so not everything has a link. Either way, I hope you guys enjoy it and let’s goooooo
I start off in the morning by washing my face in the shower with the Nivea Daily Exfoliating Anti-Impurities Face Wash. I really like this face wash even though it is for oily skin. It makes my face feel smooth and the beads in it exfoliate nicely, it also cleans the pores really well.
After showering I usually start doing my make-up and I start off by moisturizing my face with the Nivea Care Intensive Hydration creme, I really like this for combating my dry skin and it sits really nicely under my make-up.
Moving on to make up, I use the Etos (Dutch brand) CC Radiance Cream. This cc cream is the only base that actually suits my skin tone perfectly, I always have trouble finding the right shade since I kind of have a blue undertone in my skin. A lot of foundations or bases have a pink undertone and it’s so frustrating. Anyway, I then put a concealer under my eyes, on my forhead, on my chin and down the bridge of my nose. I use the Cosmia Correcter Pen. I really like this for brightening those areas. I usually put a different concealer under my eyes and then this concealer on top or just on its own. I bought this concealer a lighter shade just for brightening.
I powder my face with the Cosmia Compact Powder. I really like this powder but the brand has a small shade range and the shades are usually pinky toned. So I just lightly swipe the powder across my face to not exaggerate the pink. For bronzer I use the Miss Sporty Tan Up Your World Bronzing Powder in Hawaiian Flower. I use this for contouring my cheeks and I really like it a lot. It’s pretty pigmented so I would take a light hand with this.
I usually like going with pinky peach shades for blush. The one I used today is the NYX High Definition Blush in Hamptons. I really like this shade and this blush (I mean I really like NYX make-up) the shade is not overly pigmented so it doesn’t shock when you put it on, it’s build-able and a soft formula which is a huge plus. The NYX packaging is also really cute.
The highlighter I used today comes from the Makeup Revolution Bare Euphoria Palette. It has 5 eyeshadows and a blush, bronzer and highlighter trio. I use the highlighter in this palette a lot because it’s so pigmented and it just gorgeous. I actually used 2 palettes for my eyeshadow today. I used the Sephora It Palette in Delicate Nude. I love the shades they choose for this palette. This palette gets so much love and I love travelling with. Another much loved and much traveled palette is the Makeup Revolution Redemption Iconic 3 Palette. So many of the shades in this palette are similar to the ones in the Sephora palette, but they are unique in their own way of course. The shimmer shades are so pigmented and are everything.
The shades I used for today’s look were: shade 1 in the crease on top shade 2 and then shade 3 and blend them all together. I then put shade 4 on the inner part of the lid and shade 5 on the outer part and blended everything together with a little bit of the NYX Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Stiletto as my transition shade. After brushing through my brows I used shade 6 on the brow bone and the inner corner of my eyes. These two palettes are great for travelling since you can create any kind of eyelook with them. They’re my little babies and my favourite palettes that I own. After curling my lashes I double up with mascara and use the Cosmia Dimension mascara. This mascara is really good for more length to the lashes and then I put the NYX Curvaceous Lush Lashes mascara on top. I like this one, on its own, for a more natural look but together with the Cosmia one for added volume.
To finish the whole look off I’m using the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sao Paulo. I generally really like their liquid matte creams. They last really long and don’t really dry your lips out. NYX also has a wide range of colours for their lip products.
Hope you guys enjoyed getting ready with me (make-up style) and I’ll write you in the next post!
Sara, out 🙂
