Everyday make-up favorites

15 June 2012

I use make-up everyday. But I don’t use a lot of make-up everyday. And if I overslept the only thing I use is concealer (because I have vitiligo spots around my eyes). Here are my favorite make-up products that I use (almost) everyday.

Nivea Hydraterende gekleurde dagcreme

Nivea tinted daycream
I don’t really like to use foundation on an everyday base. It’s too much work in the morning and this tinted daycream from Nivea gives me the perfect amount of coverage. You can still see the freckles on and around my nose but my skin looks more equal. It also has SPF and vitamin E in it, so on a normal day I have enough protection.

Lancome Effacernes long-lasting concealer

Lancôme Effacernes concealer
Because I have vitiligo spots right under my eyes I do need a concealer on an every day base. Because there is no pigment in the skin under my eyes I always have dark circles. For a normal day this concealer will do it. It is long-lasting and waterproof and I have it in different colors to match my skincolor. If I didn’t sleep right I do need a little bit more covering up (on those days I use a green of orange/pink concealer before I use this one), but most days this will do the work. It is long-lasting, so if it is just for school/work I don’t need an powder to set it. If I will be gone all day, go out or if it’s very hot I will use a powder. It also has SPF in it, so for a normal day that’s perfect.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Because of the vitiligo around my eyes my skin and eyes are very sensitive and I get irritation from most mascaras. I’ve been using this mascara for quite a few years now and it never disappoints me. It gives my lashes great lenght, a little bit more volume and I don’t get irritation from it. I have two version: the normal one and the waterproof one. I use the waterproof version on very hot days, when I go swimming etc. I don’t use it everyday because it really is waterproof and even after a hot shower it hasn’t moved! So removing it is a bit more irritating for my sensitive skin.

Mac Dainty Blush

I’ve been using this blush for a few months now and I just love it. One of my friends had this color and after using it I knew I had to have it. And that was a good choice because since then I’ve used it almost every day! I really like the color and the way you can build it up. For everyday I just use a little bit, for going out I build it up.

Essence long-lasting eye pencil

Essence eye pencil
I don’t use eyeliner everyday, but I do use it most days. I have a lot of different kind of eyeliners but for everyday these two eye pencils from Essence in black and silver are my favorite. This is also a product I was introduced to by a friend and at first I was a bit sceptical, the pencils only cost about 1,99 so how can they be good and long-lasting? I don’t know how, but for me it works!
