This month I’ve been using a lot of my ol’ standbys. My go-to products. My eyeshadow varies based on what I’m testing out, what I have that’s new, etc. What I actually put on my face of my complexion products is mix of the same products. Sometimes I skip tinted moisturizer and go naked skin with just mascara. Occasionally I do very light complexion makeup and skip eyeshadow. Over all, I regularly use these products so I thought I’d focus on them this month since I don’t feel like I can offer a true “favourites” post since I haven’t bought much that hasn’t been for the specific purpose of writing reviews for this blog. This might seem redundant since I have written about most (if not all) of these products before but what can I say? It’s true, I love them and use them constantly!
I’m almost out of my NARS tinted moisturizer so I’m focusing on this guy right here… The Rodial Instaglam Skin Tint. It’s fussy to apply but the finish is lovely, and it lasts all day!
If I use any kind of foundation I always use a concealer and set it. My holy grail concealer for my dark circles is my NARS concealer in honey. I set it with a Sonia Kashuk Powder that is in the concealer quad (no longer sold in Canada) and use my Real Techniques setting brush. I also use the same products to set my T-zone.
Some days I only do my brows with the Gosh Brow Gel, other days I want a little more definition so I also use my Annabelle Skinny Brow Pencil. I really love the Annabelle brow pencil but I can take or leave the Gosh Brow Gel. I’m using it basically to use it up.
The only bronzer I use is the one from Kiko. Sadly it isn’t available in Canada so I hope my work sends me back to Europe soon so I can get a backup. I like that it isn’t dark, it’s sort of cool and matte. It’s the perfect little extra in the summer. I can contour with it too!
Many of these products I’ve written about before. Possibly even all of them… On one hand I feel bad about the repetition but on the other, I have to be honest! I use these products or a combination of these products every day! Lately my eyeshadow and lips are a revolving door of random things I grab from my stash or have bought recently but my complexion products have stayed the same for most of the summer. I find that unless it’s exceptionally hot and humid, I get all day out of these products plus the added benefit of some sun protection with my Rodial Skin Tint!
