A couple of months back, I’d done a post on the everyday makeup products that I had been loving! Today I have the second installment of this mini series featuring some face and cheek products that have become my everyday staples lately! For me, everyday makeup means a quick look that brightens up my complexion but still looks natural and polished. I gravitate towards soft shades of pink and peach/coral for everyday looks. Here are some current favorites –
1. KATE BB Gel Cream
KATE is a Japanese drugstore brand (part of the Kanebo) that has amazing products and this Gel BB cream is the best BB I’ve tried! It feels really light weight, blends like second skin and just makes my skin look beautiful yet not made up at all. The coverage is sheer-medium and the texture works great with my oily skin. Its not mattifying but somehow it doesn’t make my face greasy. I love how fresh and natural this looks on my skin and I’ve been using it pretty much everyday!
2. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
This is a highlighting concealer that does a great job of brightening up my eye area while offering medium coverage. While I don’t care for the brush and the twist mechanism, the product itself works great on me. It doesn’t cake, doesn’t feel greasy or too highlight-y and works out perfect for everyday because of the natural finish. Full review + before/after pics HERE. I use the shade Honey in this.
3. NYX Powder Blush : Amber
NYX has one of the best affordable powder blushes in the market! I have quite a few of these but my favorite these days is Amber, a dusty rose satin shade that adds a natural flush of pink to my complexion. I’d highly recommend this shade for medium to wheatish complexions. The formula is smooth, non-powdery, easy to blend and can be layered for deeper color. Since I reach for some sort of pink lip color for quick everyday makeup, this goes perfectly!
4. Avon Smooth Minerals Lipstick : Cranberry
An oldie but goodie! I don’t know if Avon still makes these but if you can get your hands on this, please get it! Its one of the nicest pinks I own (and that is saying something because I have a ton of lipsticks!). Its a soft berry rose pink color – so beautiful and would work across complexions. It brightens the face but isn’t a loud color at all. The texture of the lipstick is smooth, it feels hydrating and comfortable though over time, it doesn’t apply as glossy as it did when it was new. I’d still recommend it, its a beautiful shade for Indian complexions!
