Hello Everyone. As the month of July is coming to an end, I thought of doing a post on my July favies 😉 For me this month was really busy and happening as I celebrated Eid which we Muslims celebrate with alot of zest and zeal all around the world. My sister-in-law and her family also visited us and alot of other relatives from America and Dubai. So, basically as we had relatives visiting, there were alot of parties and shopping trips to the malls. And for attending those parties I had to dress up and the makeup products I reached for the most will be discussed in this post. Without further ado lets get started. PRIMER After cleansing and proper hydration one needs a good primer that can help in making the makeup stay put. I used the Essence Cosmetics all about matt! oil control make-up base. It comes out in a white color and goes on very smoothly and absorbs into the skin pretty fast. A little goes along way. I like to focus on my T-zone as that gets pretty oily.
FOUNDATION I had the Maybelline NewYork Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation for quite sometime. And in the month of July I got a good chance to use it. Boy was I happy? You bet I was. I really liked the foundation as it is not heavy and goes off seamlessly on the face. It doesn’t streak or breakup on the face. One has to blend fast or it tends to settle on the place one applied. But overall I liked the coverage and because of which I kept on reaching for it.
CONCEALER L’OREAL TOUCHE MAGIQUE is my go to concealer. I like how it conceals, corrects and brightens my under eye. It truly is magic in a wand. Need I say more?
SETTING POWDER For setting my under eye area and my T-zone I always use my MAYBELLINE FIT ME powder. I like how silky it is. It is not cakey or heavy on the skin. Keeps my makeup in place.
BEAUTY BLENDER I recently got myself a black beauty blender and fell instantly in-love with it. It is just amazing. It makes your makeup look flawless and airbrushed. Blends the makeup beautifully and perfectly. Amazing. I have used this to blend practically everything on my face.
EYE PRIMER For priming my eye-lids I use BENEFIT’S STAY DON’T STRAY. I absolutely LOVE this product. It even outs my lids and whichever eye-shadow I use on top of this, it stays put and looks beautiful.
MASCARA I have been using the L’OREAL FALSE LASH WINGS mascara for quite some time. And can I say that it is amazing. The brush on the wand has small bristles which when used hug the lashes and glides smoothly. It doesn’t clump gives such a pretty butterfly effect. Also it holds the curl in place.
BROW WOW For eye-brows I went for the ESSENCE MAKE ME BROw eye-brow gel mascara. Extremely light weight and pocket friendly. Made my brows look fuller and thicker.
BLUSH NARS ORGASM<3 is love to me. This blush is gorgeous. The color is so pretty and build-able. It is the perfect peachy pink with a a hint of golden shimmer. The best part is one doesn’t need a high-lighter with this blush.
LIPSTICKS I mostly used two lipsticks a lot this month. One being the REVLON COLORBURST BALM in SWEETHEART and MAYBELLINE COLORSENSATIONAL in shade HOLLYWOOD RED. The first one is a bright pink shade which gives a nice pop of color on the lips. It also brighten the complexion. The second one is such a unique shade: it is a brick red shade but not red and not truly brick in shade. Its just gorgeous. Both these lippies have good staying power. Another lip product I used and was pleasantly surprised by its performance was the BABY-LIPS balm by MAYBELLINE. I got it in the shade Pink Shock. It gives a subtle hint of color while at the same time moisturizing the lips.
SETTING-SPRAY The month of July was very hot and humid. Thus I had to use a setting-spray and the one I reached for was the ELF MAKEUP MIST and SET. This spray not only sets the makeup but also gives off a dewy finish.
MAKEUP WIPES My absolute favorites are the OLAY ESSENTIALS wet cleaning wipes. To get all the makeup off the face one needs good wipes and these come in handy. They clean all traces of makeup off my face perfectly.
I know thats a whole bunch of favorites but, I thought why not tell you guys a little bit about these products too. I hope you guys like this post. Its a tad bit long so bear with me 🙂 Do share, comment and like. I would love to hear from you all. Take care
