It’s been awhile since a real face of the day, so apologies for that. This summer has been going by fast because of my workload and classes. I’ve kept things so minimal on my face that I almost felt foolish posting about it. However, because I’ve been using new products, I figured it would be still be fun (and somewhat useful) for you to see what my day-to-day products have been. Keep in mind I still do my brows and eye makeup, but my face makeup is quite minimal.
I begin my mornings, of course, with proper cleansing and morning skincare. My current sunscreen of choice has been the Biore Perfect Face Milk SPF 50 PA +++. This has “sebum controlling ingredients” and is excellent for oil control. Seriously. Under makeup, this is the ideal sunscreen. I’m still on my primer kick, and my current favorite is the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15. I apply a thin layer all over my face and it absorbs quickly. Seriously, the best primer for life. I like that I can wear it alone without foundation and it still helps with my pores, redness and some unevenness.
Because my face is so minimal, and I’ve skipped foundation in general, it’s important that my eyes look awake and bright. I’ve been using the Diorsnow UV Shield BB Eye Creme SPF 20 PA++ under my eyes and on my eyelids. It’s soothing, hydrating, and helps my eye area look 100 x’s better. I applied it with my Sephora Collection concealer brush. For color on my cheeks, I’m still obsessed with my Illamasqua cream blushers. I routinely alternate between “Promise” and “Laid.” I’ve been using the Real Techniques contour brush to apply my cream blushers lately. I normally use the Expert Face Brush. I like the contour brush because it’s slightly tapered and it’s smaller, so it’s easier to control on the cheeks. It’s too bad that it comes in a kit and not sold separately.
I promise to have more eventful face of the days soon. :)
