Everyday Makeup Heroes #2

 

Hey everyone!

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.

Kate BB Gel Cream

This is an amazing BB cream from the Japanese brand KATE (part of Kanebo)! I love its light weight texture combined with the good coverage. It evens out my skin really well – almost working like a light to medium coverage foundation. The formula works really nicely with my combination skin – it doesn’t catch onto dry parts but controls the oilier bits making it an ideal long wear base! Love it! Price : 1500 JPY (Rs 916)

 

 

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Essence de Gloss : #421 Grenat

This juicy gloss is super hydrating and the rosy brown shade is very natural and wearable. I really like the non-sticky texture, the slight translucence and instant softening it gives to my lips. Unfortunately its been discontinued! Its definitely one of my favorite MLBB (my-lips-but-better) glosses! Price : approx. Rs 1500.
