I know that as a teenage/college girl, our biggest problems can potentially be makeup and breaking out. Luckily for me I can count the amount of pimples I’ve ever had in one hand but I know not many of us have had this experience. Therefore, I want to share with you products that have kept my face nice and clean and always glowing – year round (trust me, this can be hard with how pale I am!)
These are the essentials I carry with me at all times. They are affordable, easy to find, and a complete catch. The list goes as follows:
- Elf Golden Bronzer ($4 in Target or online)
- Elf Makeup Setter and Mist ($3 in Target or Online)
- Maybelline FIT Me Foundation ($9 any drugstore)
- Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer ($15 at Walmart)
- Wet n’ Wild Mega Plump Mascara ($2 any drug store)
- Urban Decay Naked Palette I ($52 Sephora)
Now I know you may not think the Naked Palette is necessary an essential but eyeshadow and playing around with different color schemes is vital to the face. Its a little pricey so I think that you’d be fine getting any of the other products first but it eventually must be in your makeup kit. I think the blending of the colors is beautiful and worth the investment. The Elf Bronzer is the perfect shade of gold and brown and it makes your face naturally glowy! The mist is cheap and does what it has to do. It keeps my makeup intact all night long without having to pay $15 for a MAC one. The FIT me foundation is very soft and looks natural which is extremely important when talking about foundation. It isn’t heavy and has not made me break out once and I’ve been using it for about 9 months now. The moisturizer is good for girls with dry skin like me. It always leaves my face soft and dewy, not sticky, not greasy, it has the perfect amount of oils in it to keep my face hydrated. Lastly, the mascara. I chose this mascara because I already have long lashes, I don’t need to exaggerate them every day so this is a perfect soft coat on your lashes for a nice subtle look.
Hope I’ve been able to help you with some choices! Please shoot me any comments if you have any concerns or questions.
