What’s In Your Makeup Bag?
If you were stranded on an island and could only bring the items in your makeup bag what would they be?
The choice for me is simple, with these items I can look natural and put together for the daytime and slay into the night and look glam by just using these 4 beauty products!
Here are my must-haves that I truly cannot live without.
Concealer is a quick and easy step in your makeup routine that has endless benefits for the skin. The most common known functions of concealer are for covering pesky blemishes, masking and brightening up dark under-eye circles and in some cases used for contouring. My favourite type of concealer is a creamy liquid or creamy solid, using a beauty blender or a liquid foundation brush when applying will help create buildable coverage that is soft and natural. When using a creamy concealer make sure you use a setting powder to set the concealer to avoid transfer throughout the day and to prolong the wear time so your skin will look fresh all day. The reason I really like the Creme de Camouflage concealer is that it has two dual functions, focusing on skincare as well as providing a full coverage makeup all in one product.
Blush has been a staple in my makeup bag since the beginning of time. In today’s market, there are a few different types of blush: powder, cream, and liquid. Blush helps flush colour and youthfulness into the skin giving you that perfect glow. If you enjoy a dewy skin look then the Dew I make You blush from Creme de la Creme has a semi-sheer base that has the perfect pop of colour and softness. Anytime applying a liquid or creme blush place on the apples of the cheek and with an angled brush blend out to help control and even out the application of the product.
If you love liquid liner as much as I can I get an AMEN?! In my personal opinion eye, looks are not complete without a sharp crisp black liquid liner to fully shape the eye. Eyeliner helps transform the appearance, thickness and volume of the lash line and can also make the illusion of a more open and elongated eye shape by adding a wing shape. I have always struggled to find the perfect shade of black liquid liner that does not fade into a grey, bluish hue by the end of the day. One product that does not do this is Crème de la Crème Fluid Butter liquid eyeliner. It is the perfect shade of jet black with a long wear time and it doesn’t budge, smudge, flake off or peel.
The last product in my makeup bag is the perfect nude shade matte liquid lipstick. Finding the perfect shade of nude is tricky but it’s so satisfying once you have found it. Adding a matte liquid lipstick to your makeup look brings everything full circle. The creamy velvet matte liquid formula at Crème de la Crème has been a game-changer for my lip products. Not only is it so light and soft, but I also find it hydrates my lips while conquering the long wear time. From day to night the perfect nude lip is so universal and complements all desired makeup looks.
