Drug store Foundation Routine!

Image
Hey everyone! Today I'm going to talk you through my foundation routine, for days when I do my makeup. I don't always have time to do my makeup on a daily basis, but this is a go to list of products! If you have any feedback or recommendations, hit up the comments! Xoxo Linda.



First I start with the Elf Mineral Primer. I use the green one for redness that I have around my nose and on my jaw line / cheek area. I'm not sure what it is, but I do know a lot of women seem to have it. There is a lot of bumpy texture to it as well. I'd say over all this primer does work pretty well for it being from the drug store.







Second, I use Covergirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous foundation in the shade 810, Classic Ivory. It's the second lightest shade with a slight yellow undertone. To apply this I use my damp Real Techniques Perfection Complexion sponge. This is a medium coverage foundation and covers my spots and scars pretty well. I always end up going back to this one. I like to t…

Maybelline Volum Express; The Rocket Mascara!

Image
Hi guys. Today I want to talk to you about my holy grail mascara! As far as eye lashes go in length, I guess I could say I'm pretty lucky. Thanks you my Italian dad, of course! In my many years of this addiction all things cosmetics, I've used my fair share of different mascaras. I have only ever repurchased one of those. That's the Rocket Mascara by Maybelline in waterproof!
This mascara is the only one I've found that goes on smooth, super black and doesn't clump my lashes! I buy it in the blackest black shade and It's not grey like a lot of other "black" mascaras are. Like I've said, this is my holy grail. It doesn't flake off, which is a miracle to me to be honest. I have always had issues with every other mascara I've used with clumping, flaking and smearing. I do have more oily eyelids, incase that helps you when deciding to purchase it. This mascara separates, lengthens and give my lashes a voluminous lift. I don't even have to …
