When it comes to makeup, I'm not the most experimental person on the planet. I have my moments - like, say, when a babysitter arrives early and I can actually sift through my makeup bag as opposed to grab at things on autopilot. And sure, once in awhile I'll break out a silver liquid eyeliner or some neon eyeshadow...but mostly (like most women), I've got my routine, and tend to order the same products over and over and over.
They are these:
- MAC Studio Fix Powder-Plus-Foundation. I have used this product to even my skin tone (no need for concealer or foundation or anything else) for YEARS. I have no idea whether it's because it's great or because I know my color (C3) and just reordering it online whenever I run out means I don't have to stand in a department store being swabbed by a makeup artist insisting that my undertones are chartreuse. I don't care what my undertones are. I just want my Studio Fix, 'kay?
- Sephora Liquid Eyeliner. I started buying this product because it had the exact kind of brush I like (super thin and flexible) and because it was about nine bucks at the time. Spoiler: it is no longer nine bucks. But I still buy it and use it every day.
- Lip Balm. I've been on a no-lipstick kick for...I dunno, maybe a couple of years now? I don't really care what kind of lip balm I use (although this one is my favorite), so long as I always have some close by, because OY do my lips get dry fast.
Other products I use every single day (or at least every single day I put on makeup, which, as it turns out, is no longer every single day): brown eyebrow powder, a NARS eyeshadow palette, and mascara (if I don't have eyelash extensions at the moment).
