When I organize or declutter my makeup collection, I always find myself falling in love with old products. It’s really unlikely that I finish a product, I either forget about it or get tired of it. That’s why I decided to keep my everyday makeup drawer in constant rotation. I will be exchanging products every now and then to have the opportunity to fall in love with products that are already part of my collection. What I am looking for with this, is to minimize my visits to makeup counters and use up the majority of my makeup, before they reach their expiration date.
I constantly find myself adding new products to my collection. When I compare them to the ones I already own I can usually find a dupe on my collection of that new product. This serves to show that I usually buy things because I like them and not because I need them. As a college student I shouldn’t be spending money on things that I don’t need. Instead I should be saving money for my college expenses.
I am going to stop rambling and show you guys what I am currently keeping in my makeup drawer.
Everyday Makeup | Face
I don’t usually wear foundation, but if I do it’s probably the Revlon Colorstay Foundation. I have been mixing this foundation with my Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream to get a more natural and light coverage for summer. As a blush I have been loving the Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore, which give a natural flush on the cheeks.
Since I tried the Hoola Bronzer from Benefit, I have been in love with this product. It’s the only bronzer I use. Therefore, I am not surprised it found it’s way into my everyday makeup drawer. Finally, when I feel like I want my skin to glow like a disco ball (in the best way posible), I use the Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid in Light.
Everyday Makeup | Eyes
I usually don’t wear eyeshadow on the daily basis, but lately, I have been wanting to get extra fancy. I have been wearing eyeshadows, but in the most natural way possible. For that the Tartelette Palette is perfect. When I am on a hurry I will swipe a light wash of the shade Force of nature all over the lids. I am not a fan of mascara, so I usually skip it. If I am looking tired I will apply a light coat.
Everyday Makeup | Lips
I am constantly changing my lip color. Therefore, I don’t have one in particular that it’s always on my makeup drawer. I do have some nude favorites which are:
- Barbara from Nars
- 924 from Kiko
- Fairest Nude from Loreal
- Beige Pop from Clinique
- Mac’s Velvet Teddy.
Let me know which products you keep on your everyday makeup drawer.
