My Everyday Makeup Basics
It's really funny to me that the most asked question I get outside of clothing/sizing etc. is WHAT MAKEUP I WEAR. If you have known me for a while you will know that I am SO basic with my makeup and really don't wear much. I am allergic to just about everything so I have used the same makeup brands for as long as I can remember.
Here are my Top 5 Makeup Basics that I can not live without.
Let me preface this and say that I am in NO way a makeup artist, nor do I aspire to be. This is just what works for me.
My concealer of choice happens to be L'Oreal Paris True Match Super - Blendable Concealer. I apply this with a damp beauty blender.
I use the shade: Fair/Light W1-2-3
I have tried the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer that everyone has been raving about, but it honestly irritated my skin and made my eyes water instantly. I do sometimes still wear it for photoshoot days because it does have a bit more coverage.
I set my concealer under my eyes with another L'Oreal Product. Their True Match Powder is my favorite. I use the makeup pad that it comes with to apply it. I just dab it on right over my under eye concealer. I love the brightness it adds. It has a very matte finish and it doesn't crease easily.
I use the shade: W1 Porcelain
So I don't wear eye shadow, ever. I don't have the patience for it and honestly most of it makes my eyes swell up . I just apply the MAC Paint Pot on my entire eye lid. I use the shade "Painterly" and it brightens my eyes and without having to do anything extra. It is considered a Nude Beige. On me, it has a bit of a pink undertone. I apply it with my finger and it doesn't budge all day.
I use the shade: Painterly
Foundation. Mineralogie Loose Mineral Foundation. This is my FAVORITE makeup product ever. It's water resistant and has an SPF. It has a buildable coverage. I use one layer for every day use, but on days I film videos I typically layer it with a second application.
I use the shade "Bisque" They do offer sample size jars to help find your perfect shade. They also have fantastic customer service if you need help too. If you happen to be local to the Tulsa, OK area, Berkshire Salon and Day Spa carries it and they have makeup artist that can help color match you.
I use the shade: Bisque
I get asked almost weekly if I have lash extensions. I don't. I honestly don't think I could sit still long enough, nor do I have the time in my schedule to go every few weeks. I love the look of them, but they honestly just don't fit my lifestyle.
I SWEAR by the L'Oreal Telescopic mascara. I personally use 2-3 layers of it. I apply one layer to my left eye, then one layer to my right eye until I get the look I want. It doesn't flake, but I will say it's not waterproof at all so keep that in mind for any beach vacations or heavy sweat sessions at the gym.
I use the shade: Blackest Black

So like I said, these are my TOP 5 MUST HAVE basics. I will be posting my full makeup routine in the next few days on my personal IG Account @blairespriggs.
I will also create a post soon with the other products like bronzer, brow powder, highlighter ETC.
