Every Day Makeup

And we are back to some makeup. It was about time, right?

Today I am sharing with you my most recent every day makeup. I’ve been doing the same routine on and off the past few months. I have it down to a science!

And since I received some items from PUR Cosmetics. I decided to incorporate them into my every day routine and see how they work.

PUR Cosmetics 4

First is the HydraGel Lift Eye Perfecting Primer. Cost $26.00 USD.

This hydrating all-purpose, cooling eye primer that preps and smooths the skin for better wear throughout the day. Encapsulated Water Complex hydrates the lid and under eye for an instant brighter, firmer, lifted look while blurring imperfections and priming for concealer application.

My Thoughts: Unless I want to pop out the eyeshadow color, I haven’t been using eye primer. I find it unnecessary. A bit of concealer and/or foundation and you’re good. But if you’re one of the ones that live for eye primer, I liked this one. It’s a gel stick that goes on your eyes really smooth.

Next, up is the No Filter Blurring Photography Primer. Cost $33.00 USD.

Moisturize, color balance, prime and illuminate the skin in one step. This unique primer with prismatic blurring micro-pearls helps to color correct while age-defying skin care ingredients nourishes the skin and a vitamin-rich Energy Complex with moisturizing agave and essential fatty acids prep the skin for makeup application. Loaded with essential oils like Coconut, Olive, and Shea a drop of this into your foundation will result in a dewy yet shine-free finish that boosts radiance and masks imperfections for a picture-perfect complexion.

My Thoughts: I am always weary of primers. I have really oily skin. And a lot simply don’t set. This one comes with a dropper, kind of like highlighting drops. As a matter of fact, it does have a light silver shimmer. So it gives your skin a soft automatic glow. And you know what? It set pretty well. I went to the gym after and it stayed n without any issue. They only thing is, it did feel a bit heavy on my skin.

Finally, I received the Fully Charged Mascara Powered by Magnetic Technology. Cost $22.00 USD.

This anti-aging mascara that has a “magnetic” polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance.

My Thoughts: I didn’t love it, but I did like it. I’m not a fan of the brush thought. Is one of those that you have to clean before applying because it’ll clump up and pull out way too much material. However it did a good job giving my lashes volume.

Now on to for my every day makeup, I am a bit obsessed with the Sweet Peach Palette by Too Faced. I do Gorgeous all over lid. On the crease use Summer Yum. And on the lid, I use Luscious.

For my every day I’ve been using the peach concealer from NYX for my dark spots. And Wet n’ Wild PhotoFocus foundation. On the brows my OG, Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz pencil.

My current every day blush is Fresh Melon by City Color. And my highlight is Wet n’ Wild Megaglo.

And lastly, but certainly not least, with MYOB Cosmetics’ lip gloss in Be Gone.

I keep it really simple for my every day. No need to bronze or contour. I leave that for special occasions. Do you contour every day?

And to further show you how the PUR products worked, I took a selfie after doing shoulders and HIIT cardio.

I still looked pretty good even while I was sweating buckets. The mascara did run a bit but I was seriously sweating. Even my eyelids were drenched. I kno, so sexy in my Power Rangers shirt.

What do you think? What’s your go to every day makeup?
