Ooh I love this idea!
I’m very fair-skinned, oily, and breakout prone. My main skin concerns are blemishes, large pores, and inflammation. My skin tone leans towards roses, champagnes, and light neutrals. My every day makeup look is classic (red lips, matte skin, light blush, and bright eyes with simple eyeliner).
(Sorry this might be a lot, but i’m a total beauty product junkie!)
Cleanser: Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil $9.99 This cleanser is super natural, made with organic ingredients, and super gentle on skin AND it works well with helping to clear breakouts and keep the skin cleansed with the tea tree oil’s antiseptic properties. I don’t recommend using this without a good moisturizer, though.
Toner: Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner (with aloe vera and vitamin e) $9.99 This is a wonderful soothing and healing toner that can also be used as a light moisturizer in the summertime.
Serum: LUSH’s Grease Lightening $13.95 (A tea tree oil gel spot treatment) I use it as a serum on large amounts of my skin. Its wonderful for slowly healing active breakouts.
Moisturizer: LUSH’s Vanishing Cream (Witch hazel moisturizer to help manage and clear break outs) $42.95 Love this moisturizer– it’s moderately priced, moisturizes well, and helps keep my skin clear. It’s ingredients also help keep my skin healthy!
Lip Treatments: Every night I use three things– LUSH’s Bubble Gum Lip Scrub $9.95, LUSH’s Lip Service Lip Balm $7.95, and Eucerin Aquaphor Lip Repair $3.69 These three combined keep my lips healthy, moisturized, and soft.
Cuticle Cream: Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream $5.00 I have to mention this because it’s done WONDERS for my cuticles.
Foundation: Neutrogena Oil Free SkinClearing Liquid Makeup $12.00 I use this because it’s the only foundation I’ve found that doesn’t break me out. I recommend using it with a light coverage setting powder.
Eye Primer: Benefit Lemon-Aid $20.00 A color correcting eyelid primer– it brightens the eye and helps eyeshadow stay on!
Eye Liner: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner $20.00 If you like liquid eyeliner, this is THE best. It’s jet black and does not smudge one bit! Plus it’s easy to apply.
Mascara: Benefit They’re Real! Mascara $23.00 This is my all time favorite mascara. I have long lashes already, so I look for mascaras that will give me volume and this is the ultimate. Plus it doesn’t run or smudge.
Blush: Clinque Soft Pressed Powder Blusher in Pink Blush $21.00 It’a so natural looking and soft. I’ve been using this for years. I also love the NARS blushes (particularly the shade Deep Throat) but they tend to be brighter and a little less natural than my this clinque one.
Lipstick: MAC Russian Red $16.00 I think this is the most perfect classic red. Also been using this for years.
Eyeshadow: Any of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, of course! $28-$52 and so worth it!
Hair Treament: It’s A 10 Miracle Leave in Product $10.00 (for the 2oz bottle, but it lasts forever) I LOVE this stuff. It’s made my hair super soft and stronger.
Hair Mask: Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque $30.00 This stuff is amazing. It makes my hair so soft and moisturized and shiny without making it super oily (which my hair already is). It’s tad expensive but, like the last product, lasts forever.
