The Everyday Makeup Edit

My everyday makeup routine changes up more frequently than I would like but I am not mad at it. This past month and a half I have been trying a lot of new products that became my go-to for an everyday basis because not only I love how they make my skin look but also because they are mostly very affordable and for me that is key on an everyday makeup.
I do not want to be wearing a more expensive foundation or concealer on an everyday basis when I can have very similar results with more affordable products. I am the kind of person that will always opt for the more affordable, drugstore products for an everyday wear and leave the high end for special occasions, I am sure I am not the only one, right?

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation | A Review

Unless you are living under a rock, you have probably heard of the new NARS foundation - the one that will give you a super natural high coverage looking skin. Weird right? How can it look natural and give you such good coverage?
I am not the one to fall for very hyped products. Sometimes I think that it is all for nothing and most of the time it isn't as good as they say but after trying out the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation for the past few days, I have already made an opinion that I am ready to share.

Beauty Techniques I Want to Perfect

I am a true makeup lover and I might go as far as to say that I am a makeup addict. Yet, it isn't because of that that I am a pro on everything that comes to beauty and makeup techniques.
There is always something that I want to master or perfect and I have been thinking a lot about that lately, specially after deciding that I was going to do my own wedding makeup.

So here I am sharing with you techniques I really want to improve during the next few months or this year of 2018. It would be great if you could share either some tips and tricks or products that you recommend that really help with getting a great result and making the job a bit easier!

Creating the Perfect Canvas with L'Óreal Paris

I can never stress enough the importance of looking after your skin. It is what will make your foundation sit and last beautifully on the skin. It does not matter if you buy the most expensive foundation if the canvas you are working on is full of texture, dry patches, etc.
So skin care is a really important thing as well as using the correct primer for the type of skin you have/problematic areas you want to cover.
My major problem is dry skin, along with slightly large pores so I tend to go for very moisturising products and, at times, illuminating primers.
I have noticed that mixing primers sometimes doesn't work quite well unless you just apply them to the designated areas - for example, my large pores are focused on my T zone and the dryness is around my face so I apply different primers to those two areas if I want to be a bit extra.
On a daily basis I want something more practical and that truly moisturises, illuminates and smoothens my skin and this is where these two new products come really handy.
