Anonyme a demandé: what are your make up essentials?
Literally almay oil-free makeup removing towelettes are my GO TO. I get them in packs at CVS, and i use one towelette in the morning and one at night. They even are 100% excellent at getting rid of acne (makeup induced or otherwise)- better than Murad, and literally every other brand I’ve tried. If I wash my face with anything else (aveeno exfoliating pads), I always use a towelette before my moisturizer.
TEA TREE OIL- again, acne. If you ever get a bump, put some pure tea tree oil on it. Can also be used for razor bumps but I’ve never taken it that far.
TAPE- I mentioned that previously, but I use tape (scotch, or masking tape) if my face is peeling or flaking and exfoliation doesn’t do the trick. Just wash your face (I’ll use a towelette) and moisturize after.
Urban Decay Primer Potion- Girl. Literally the best thing for eyeshadow stay power.
Stila Liquid Liner pen- if you couldn’t do a cat eye before, now you can. Literally stays all day, too.
MAC eyeshadow- I won’t use any other brand. The colors are so pigmented and if you can wet your brush for a more intense look.
MAC (studio sculpt?) concealer- Literally, Do not underestimate the power of a good concealer. I have one in NC20 that I use for highlighting, and one in NC42 (my normal skin color) that I use for everything else. Concealer plays a huge role in cleaning up your look. Use it to define your brows (fill your brows in, then outline them in concealer and blend for a clean finish), highlight cheekbones, highlight the Cupid’s bow, clean up an eyeshadow look or cateye. Concealer is the secret to makeup success.
MAC lipliner (NOT that new professional automatic shit)- literally lipliner will take your face (lips) to the next level. I use lip liner instead of lipstick and it stays all day (all day meaning all day, from 7am-12am the next day.)
Use a concealer to erase your lip line and then redraw with liner. Do not get crazy. For your top lip, you can outline INSIDE your natural lip border for a more defined pout (a deeper Cupid’s bow or a sharper incline from the corners of your mouth)
If you want bigger lips, you can always outline underneath your bottom lip. But don’t outline outside of your top lip.
Make Up Forever HD Microfinish Powder- I can’t even describe this stuff. Use a little bit on a big fluffy brush to finish your look. It blurs your pores and makes your makeup look incredible. It makes all the difference.
Anyway, this has been a post. I’m hungover so I’ll fix it up and add more later.

This texturizer has given me the texture I would love, BUT I need more moisture!
