My Makeup Routine

Leave a comment

It’s time! Here’s my makeup routine! 😊

Let me begin by saying that I do not have a daily makeup routine. It’s because I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis anymore. I used to. One day, I decided to let go of makeup. It happened gradually. I’ve only worn makeup about 5 times in the past months. I’ve been makeup-free for most days. It’s not because I’m lazy. It’s because makeup is not good for my skin type. It makes my skin oily and causes random breakouts. If makeup contributes to my acne, I prefer not to wear it. You might say that I’m wearing the wrong type of makeup. No, I am not. Imagine having naturally oily skin that is prone to acne and piling on makeup on top of that — that is pretty disaterous on a day-to-day basis. Makeup once in a while is OK. It’s not something I want to do every day. Makeup, in my honest opinion, is not good for the skin in general. So why wear makeup? I’ll answer that question in another post! Here are the makeup products that I use and have when I wear makeup.

Skin79 Orange BB Cream

Foundation/BB Cream:

I use Dr Jart Silver Label BB Cream or Skin79 Orange BB Cream. I prefer Dr Jart much more. The texture feels smoother and makes my skin look flawless. But, I’m not a big fan of either of these anymore. They haven’t helped with wrinkles, brightening, anti-aging, and so on. The only thing I liked about these BB Creams was the SPF. It stayed on my skin much longer compared to an SPF lotion that goes on clear. As of right now, I use it because I have it. I will be on the look out for a new BB Cream that is vegan and cruelty-free. OR, I’ll go back to using the good ‘ol basics: Powder Foundation & Concealer — I’m breaking the liquid foundation first rule, haha. Oh well! 😜

Milani Makeup

Speaking of powder foundations, I use Milani Even Touch Powder Foundation. I have one in my skin color and one that’s much darker as a bronzer. These work quite well for the price. From what I remember, they are under 10 bucks! You shouldn’t have to pay $20+ for foundation. This is just my opinion. At the moment, I use my BB Creams more often than my Milani powder foundations. As I said above, I’m thinking about switching it around, since powder foundations are 10x more lightweight on the skin. I prefer the natural look over the made-up look.

Eyeshadow:

For my eyes, I use Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes. The same ones I introduced years ago. HAHAH! No, seriously. 😅 I haven’t purchased any new eyeshadows for years. My eyeshadow palettes have lasted for many, many years. I always make sure to disinfect my eyeshadows before using them. I don’t feel the need to buy a $50-$100 palette or have a collection of eyeshadows sitting around in the dust, to be honest. It’s a waste of money and space. I’m not the type of person to buy makeup palettes to stare at either. It’s not my thing.

Eyeliner & Mascara:

Milani Black Eyeliner Makeup
My eyeliner: Milani Stay Put Matte Liner

Other eye makeup products I use are mascara and eyeliner. For eyeliner, Milani. For mascara, I’m currently using NYX Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara.

Blush:

Milani Baked Blushes
Two shades of blush that lasts forever!!

I do use blush. I use Milani blushes. I don’t think they’re the best, but I’m not going to drop $$$ just because I want new blushes. These work for the time being, and I still have them.

Last but not least…

Concealer:

NYX Eyeliner Concealer
My mascara & concealer

That’s the mascra I was talking about earlier. The NYX concealer is actually pretty horrible. Since I still have lots of product left, I’m just making the most out of it. Don’t buy it. Once I’m done, I’ll move onto something new.

So that’s what I use. I know it’s not much, but it’s something. I think I prefer to keep my makeup routine low-maintinence and very minimal. How about you? Do you wear makeup every day? Do you not wear makeup? What are your favorite makeup products? Share your thoughts. Let’s talk!

BB Cream: Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Functions

BB Cream: Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Functions

Hi everyone! Remember when I talked about getting a new BB Cream to try out? Well, my Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Functions arrived this week. I finally found time to share this with everyone. I want to begin by talking about my experience with the samples I used first.

I finished my Skin79 Orange samples in 2 days. The first day of using this BB Cream, I liked the coloring of it. It had more of a yellow undertone compared to other BB Creams I have used. So I liked the fact that it didn’t make my skin look grayish and dull. I loved the soft, creamy texture. The fragrance wasn’t bothersome. I thought it was a perfect match, especially when this BB Cream is supposed to be suitable for people with oily, blemished skin. On day 2, I noticed that it made my skin appear more oily (forehead and cheeks), which I was disappointed in. Also, I noticed that I was getting some blemishes on my forehead and chin area. I started worrying because I have already placed my order on this BB Cream. It was too late to cancel. I was practically stuck with it.

About Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Functions:

This BB Cream sounds great! I do like the skincare benefits of it.

My Thoughts:

With my experience with the samples in mind, I was cautious, but I was really excited! I love new makeup and skincare products! I get an adrenaline rush when it’s new in its package. Love, love opening them! SO EXCITING!! 😜 The orange colored box and pump bottle, the shimmering words on the BB Cream. This BB Cream fits right in the palm of my hand. I liked what I saw. It’s so adorable and cute!

I have been using it for three days already. I will have to use it longer to see if it’s suitable for my skin type. I will make an update on my experience with Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Functions after 1 month of usage. If I see results earlier, I’ll make an earlier update. If my skin breaks out, I’ll report back. I really hope it works out. Wish me luck!

Here are the ingredients to this BB Cream if anyone is curious!
