At the start of this month, I took a good hard look at my makeup collection. I was shocked to discover that I had run out of a lot of products, and a lot was expired. I knew I needed to place an order (or three) to replace the essentials before school started back up for me at the end of the month. Since SoCal is still in full lockdown mode, I don’t really have the need for heavy makeup. I decided to go for easier products to upgrade my routine and be ready quicker.
THRIVE CAUSEMETICS BUILDABLE BLUR CC CREAM
I really did not want to purchase another foundation. I have about three, in carrying shades, that are just too heavy for a few hours on zoom. I really wanted something a little lighter, but still has some coverage. I opted to go for this CC cream because I have heard nothing but raves. I ordered light, and while it’s a little darker than I anticipated, I find it works well with a lighter concealer. I love how quick and seamless this product is.
THRIVE CAUSEMETICS LIQUID LASH EXTENSIONS MASCARA
This is not the first time I have tried this mascara. I am such a fan of it because it is so easy to remove. I don’t think it makes my lashes look the very best I have ever seen, but it does the job for every day wear.
SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH OIL & SHINE CONTROL PRIMER
I have never tried this before so I only purchased the travel size. The primer I had previously been using (and loving), I literally cannot find ANYWHERE. I think it was discontinued *insert tears*. It took me soo long to find a primer to keep my oils at bay, but here I am on the search again. So far I do like this primer, but it isn’t as good as my previous primer.
TOO FACED PEACH PERFECT SETTING POWDER
This is my holy grail powder, and if it ever gets discontinued I will full on be devastated. It works so great for my oily skin, and it smells divine.
PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER
I have used this bronzer for many years. Mine was so old and used that it was time to get a new one. I could only find it in the shade light, but I actually really like it for a more subtle everyday look. I also LOVE the smell of this!
I am so happy to have some new makeup, and I’m even happier that I have products that will be quick and easy once I get into that daily Zoom grind for school. Have you minimized your makeup routine for 2021? I would love to know your go-to products!
