Natural Makeup Look and Product Reviews!

Hi, fashionistas!

I’m so excited to write this post, because I used my new camera to take these photos! I usually use my iPhone as my camera, but this one is so much better! I’m also excited, because I’ve been wearing this look or a similar look almost everyday recently! It’s very simple and easy. I’ve put together my reviews of all the makeup products I used for this look! They’re very informative! Let’s get started:

DETAILS and REVIEWS:

For my eyeshadow, I wore Lancôme eyeshadow in “Classy Stiletto”. It’s a really natural shade, but is build-able for a night look. It also has some shimmer which gives it dimension. For my eyeshadow primer, I wore Urban Decay Primer Potion in “Sin”. It’s great for making colors pop, and also adds a bit of shimmer as well. Normally, I would wear a light, shimmery eyeshadow on my brow bone, but I thought this eye look didn’t need it.

The two mascaras I used were from the brands YSL and Clinique. The YSL mascara is a regular formulated one and the Clinique one is waterproof. I used the YSL mascara for lengthening, but it tends to flake off, so I put the Clinique mascara over it just to make sure it wouldn’t fall under my eyes. Who wants that? I sure don’t! At the end of the lash-fest, I put the Clinique mascara on my bottom lashes. All in all, a great combo!

My foundation is from the brand Revlon and the name of the type is “ColorStay”. I chose the one for oily and combination skin, because, well, I’m a teen. That’s my all-time favorite foundation! I love it so much, because it covers really well, it’s natural looking, and lasts a long time (all day)! It also doesn’t make my face greasy which is a great factor in picking a foundation.

My powder is from the brand Lancôme and is called “Dual Finish Powder”. It’s a great setting powder for foundation. I already used up a compact, and now I’m on to my second! That says a lot, because I like to try new types and brands of makeup, but for now I’m sticking with this one. I almost never do that! If you have oily skin, I don’t recommend that you wear this powder alone, because it will fade on your face. I had that happen to me.

The blush I used is from the brand Chanel. If you don’t know, Chanel is one of the all time leading designer brands! Anyway, this blush is probably the best I’ve ever used! I have like eight blushes in my makeup collection, and I’ve tried many more. Crazy, right? I bought this blush at Fashion’s Night Out at Neiman Marcus. It will probably last me about a year or so. I think it’s a pretty good deal!

The setting spray I used is the Urban Decay “De-Slick Setting Spray”. It’s a great setting spray, because it takes away all the oil off your skin. It also keeps your makeup in place for a very long time. That’s great if you’re going to a party or if you’re going to be out all day without touch-ups. Since I bought it, I haven’t needed to touch up my makeup! You can’t use it for eye makeup, but it’s a dream for face makeup! Loving it!

For my lips, I used a Neutrogena lip balm first. My lips get dry easily, so that’s why I used it before I put anything else on my lips. I then applied my Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in “Cherry On Top”. It’s a little drying, but the color is fantastic! It also gives a little shine. Finally, I applied my Buxom Lipgloss in “Princess”. The shade is so pretty that I just couldn’t resist!
