Happy Friday y'all! I am super excited about today's post, mainly because I am a self proclaimed beauty product junkie. I might have a slight obsession with makeup. Full disclosure, I had terrible skin as a teen-- oil + acne. Woof. I was always self conscious of my skin, so finding a makeup routine that worked for me and didn't make my breakouts look worse was crucial. I've been through a lot of products over the years trying to find ones that worked with my skin. Years later I have finally combatted that teen acne (thank goodness!), but do battle with slightly oily skin and the occasional breakout. The good news? I finally found products that I love, and work with my skin! So today I am sharing what I am currently loving in my makeup bag. Disclaimer, I do not use all of these products every single day, but I am not your 5 step beauty routine & I'm out the door kind of gal. I wish I was, but I'm just not. The more the merrier right?! ;)
L'oreal Magic Lumi Primer / Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum / NARS All Day Luminous Powder / IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer / MAC Prep + Prime
The main reason I wanted to do this post was because of two products above that I am absolutely obsessed with. The Perricone NFFS is perfection. It's light, but has good coverage that you can build up if you're wanting a little more coverage. The only bummer, it only comes in one shade. While I love this foundation serum, I think I love it the most because of the NARS powder. It is technically a foundation powder, but again, you can make it as light as you want or build up the coverage. Because I have normal to oily skin I always like to set my foundation with a powder to keep my oils at bay, so I just lightly sweep this powder over my whole face after I apply the foundation. Y'all these two products together are magic. I kid you not. It works because they're both light weight, and the powder has a way of keeping your skin looking luminous and matte at the same time. I am obsessed! AND it lasts allll day, which is always a plus!
