Today I am going to talk about my favorite everyday beauty products. I probably shouldn't really call them "everyday" since I don't necessarily wear makeup every day. I used to wear it everyday when I worked out of the home, but then again I also used to wear lovely suits, dress pants, blouses, skirts, and heels too. Some days I miss getting dressed up and looking put together like that.
My number one favorite beauty product is Dermablend Cover Creme.
This is the best cover up known to man (I swear)! I have a sister with vitiligo who came home with this one day after a dermatologist recommended it to her. This company creates products firstly for those with skin disorders and flaws. I used to sneak swipes of it when my sister would leave for the day. Her little container of it was quite small (.25 - .5 oz.) and she had it for years. I bought my own years later, a slightly larger container at 1 oz. and still have it 4 years later. It is a product I use even when I am not wearing makeup, mainly to cover my "I'm a Mommy" dark circles. The best, the best, the best.
Here are some of the other everyday beauty products I use:
Oil of Olay Facial Moisturizer. My mom has used it for as long as I can remember, my mother-in-law uses it, my sister-in-law uses it, and I am sure some of you.
My MAC eye liner brush. This baby is perfection and the reason I haven't bought eyeliner in years. Just swipe this through your favorite shadow and voila - eyeliner in seconds.
Sephora Pearl No. 8 eyeshadow. I use this regularly as a base and highlight shimmer on my eyes. It goes well with anything and is a really great texture and softness (not actual color shown).
Maybelline Great Lash mascara. A classic and affordable gem. Hey, even the stars are fans - you can't go wrong. Love it.
Finish off with some shimmery Sephora Lip Gloss. This is a great sheer yet creamy gloss and it smells like something from my childhood (which I still can't quite put my foot on). Once again, not actual color shown.
So there you have my everyday beauty faves - a good mix of drug store and department store products. If you love makeup, you should check out this book:
I purchased this book years and years ago after seeing Kevyn on the Oprah show. He was such a talented makeup artist who passed away in 2002. This book is full of lovely photos and instructional makeup tips. I love to just flip through the pages and get inspired. He also has a couple other instructional books, Face Forward and The Art of Makeup. You won't be disappointed.
