Everyday Makeup

This is my go-to everyday makeup look. I usually swap out lip products and stick with the same products for everything else. I went overboard with all of the nonstop sales. It was easy to keep up with it thanks to r/MUAontheCheap. I also used CouponCabin for all my cashback! If you have Chase bank accounts, you can shop through them as well for your Sephora purchases. I recently bought from Ulta and Tarte for the first time. I managed to pick up so many things that I ended up loving and will have to wait to repurchase because paying full price sucks. I'm all for those savings.



List of products!

BROWS:
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Black
ABH Dipbrow in Granite

I had trichotillomania for a large chunk of my life so I relied on gel liners and later Dipbrow to create eyebrows. Now I'm able to use a brow pencil for the first time and NYX is my top pick!

Two Faced eyeshadow primer
ABH Modern Renaissance in Raw Sienna, Cyprus Umber, Primavera and Vermeer

LIPS:
Wet N Wild catsuit liquid lipstick in Berry Recognize




I was unaware of ABH releasing more shades for Dipbrow. Mainly because this product takes forever and a day to use up completely. I decided to go after the shade Granite and I really love it! I also wanted to try ABH's brow pencil but after seeing how little product is in that thing... I passed.

I ordered NYX's micro brow pencil instead and it's amazing how I don't need a powder to set it. I'm really loving brands that come out with black shades. No charcoal grays or dark browns because nope, my eyebrows are still dark and black. I can't use shades that are medium brown/red/gray without it looking extremely odd.

As for mascaras, I've tried many recently. I'll probably make a separate post about that. My favorite natural looking one is Tarte's Lights, Cameras, Splashes. The wand is great for giving some length and spreading the lashes apart so I use this one first. I top it off with my absolute favorite, Essence's Lash Princess. I can see a huge difference in thickness. It adds some extra length but provides that thick darkness I wish Tarte had. I wish the Essence mascara was waterproof!

I've always heard great things about Shape Tape but that price tag is so ridiculous. I managed to buy 2 for the price of 1. It's definitely the best concealer for my combination skin. It dries down so fast. Usually, other concealers remain wet looking then crease immediately. I've had to deal with concealers that would immediately crease a second time even after a touchup. I only got the shade Light Sand out of a recommendation for NC20ish skin but I'm probably in-between NC20-25. It looks really light but I suppose that's great for the purpose of highlighting the undereyes anyway?? (Edit: I eventually ordered Light Neutral and it matches my skin tone exactly).
