My Daily Makeup Routine & Awards

I was tagged by Jbreezy & Thiamere to post about my daily makeup routine, Thanks.... honestly I don't have a routine.. I just grab whatever I feel like using on that day...so instead I'm just going to post what products I usually use and there is nothing special about it...It's all drugstore stuff....

Skincare:
The first thing I do in the morning is to brush my teeth & go straight to the shower and that's also the last thing I do before going to sleep...so, mostly I wash my face only during that time...what a lazy sh*t I am, right?...the most important skincare for me is cleansing & moisturizing just because I have a very dry & sensitive skin...I'll start with.....

My Facial Cleansers
1. Neutrogena Oil-free Acne Wash - this is what I use whenever I get a pimple, and it really works for me...I've been using this for a long time now...
2. L'oreal skin Genesis- this is the cleanser that I use whenever I wear makeup...It's so mild that I even use it to remove eye makeup....
3 Cetaphil- this is very important for me...it's my daily cleanser, which is recommended by my dermatologist...
4 Aveeno Positively radiant- sometimes I use this if I feel like it...but I really don't like it as others do....
5 Burt's Bee's Citrus Facial Scrub - I like this scrub cuz' it's so moisturizing...but obviously I don't use it as often cuz' I can't even finish this tiny jar....

My Daily Facial Moisturizer
1. Clinique Dramatically different Moisturizing Lotion
2. Olay Active Hydrating
3. Neutrogena Oil-free Moisture
4. Aveeno Positively Radiant

I alternate these moiturizers, and my favorite would probably be Olay cuz' I've finished tons of Olay moisturizers and I can't live without it....:D

I don't use sunblock or eyecreams but I'm currently looking for some nice products...what can you recommend???

Makeup:
I don't go out that often so most of the time I can only wear makeup once a week and I don't use that much at all...I like my face to be natural & dewy...
Face:
1. I love to use Monistat as a primer,I know it's not suppose to be used for the face but after removing my makeup in the evening my face feels so soft...
2. Missha BB Cream #23 - I love this stuff....makes my face look dewy....the whole day...
3. Mac Concealer NW25- I love how this concealer covers the redness on my face...
4. Maybelline Mineral Powder - this is my setting powder, I got a medium 01, it's too dark on me but it gives me a natural tan look....
5. Clinique Superpowder 10 Matte Medium- I bring this wherever I go, for retouch...
1. This eyelash curler sucks it's from revlon but I still didn't get the chance to get a nicer one so I have to use it.....
2. Covergirl Lash Blast - My fave Mascara
3. I love these Jane Blushes it's cheap but the quality are so nice...
4. These 3 are my most used bronzers I need these for conturing cuz' I've got a very round face....hehe...and bonnebell & NYC are so cheap too...
5. I discovered this from bubzbeauty, this is the only Illuminator that I got...they said that it's a dupe for Benefit's High Beam & it's much cheaper so I got it...

Lips:

These are my most used Lip products: I have these everywhere (bag, all over the house & car)
1. Burts Bees Lip Balm
2. Smith's Lip Balm Minted Rose
3. Softlips
4. Mac Lipglass
5. NYX Thalia - My most used Lipstick
6. Co Bigelow Lip Tint

I don't use eyemakeup at all that's why I didn't include it here....

Kalmo said...

That Skin Genesis cleanser looks so pretty and I love Cetaphil too! So gentle and nice. Oh you should def. wear sunblock, I can't rec. any because all of mine are so oily skin (very matte) and you have dry skin. The Monistat was a nice primer! I love Jane blushes too. I love China Glaze for Audrey too. :) Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations on all the awards girl. Thank you for passing on all those lovely awards to me as well, you're so link to hyerlink everyone... I was too lazy to do that in my post LOL (bad blogger)

MEii said...

my most important skincare is cleansing and moisturizing too! and i have really weird skin if i use a wrong item i will breakout really bad so it kind of hard for me to look for the right products. and also the reason why i had tried all four moisturizers u have. lol
