FriYAY Favs: Makeup Essentials
Happpppy Friday! So if you follow me on Snapchat you know a few weeks ago I lost my whole makeup bag (among other things, long story) and was pretty bent out of shape about it. My hubs thought I was overreacting but normally I don’t go out and just re-purchase my whole set of makeup and let’s just say it was a bummer.
That being said, replacing the items gave me a whole new appreciation for my essentials. Here’s what I recommend, in the order I apply:
Either one of these are great:
1. CeraVe Moisturizing Facial Lotion (SPF 15)– Love the consistency and SPF is a must!
2. Aesop Sage & Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream (SPF 15)– Obsessssssed with the smell and my skin feels better during the day when I have it on, new favorite for sure!
Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation (also at SEPHORA): This is my ultimate favorite, I’ve tried a few that were either too drying or too oily and this stuff has passed the test. I discovered it right before our wedding in 2013 and have been obsessed ever since.
Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer: This is great for under the eyes and just covering areas that need a little more help.
Benefit Watt’s Up! I always use this on my cheekbones, down my nose and in the corner of my eyes (to pretend I’m well rested).
L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara: I only wear mascara when I’m going out at night- during the day I wear sunglasses so often and mascara is usually more of a pain to get off before washing my face, so I do without it when I can.
There you have it, my daily basics! I’m also planning to post a video version of these products on Snapchat (username: thriftsnthreads) to give you a better idea of what they look like, so make sure to follow along and have an amazing weekend!
