Even though I don’t use a lot of makeup and prefer to keep it natural, there are some products I use on a regular if not daily basis. I used to own a lot of make up, but last year I decided to throw away everything that I didn’t use regulary. So what I’m going to show you are really just my essential products.
I used to use a lot of drug store makeup, I bought something everytime I went to the drug store. Just because it was so affordable. I lowkey hoarded blushes, mascara and eyeshadow ( I had several small containers full of products I never used). As I got older I bought more and more high end products. I never had any real skin problems, so I can’t really say that that was the reason why I ditched drugstore products. For me it was more of a lifestyle change.
Another thing that I recently changed are my eyelashes. As you might have seen on my Instagram I used to have eyelash extentions. Which I loved. They are amazing for vacation and special occasions. I just got really tired of getting them filled up every 3-4 weeks, the worst are the few days before your appointment where you only have a few lashes left and it just looks so weird and ugly. Not to mention that lash extentions are really damn expensive. I paid 55€ every month. So I talked to some friends and one of them told me that she also stopped getting extentions and that she is now using a lash-grow serum. I did some research and ordered the Develle Serum online. I’ve been using it for a month now and I have to say I’m super happy with how much thicker and longer my lashes have become. The serum is quite expensive, but it last’s way longer than the extentions, so for me it was a good deal.
As I mentioned before I never really had issues with my skin. The only problem I have is that I have super sensitive skin. If it’s cold outside I always get red and puffy. I had the chance to try out some of the Bioderma Sensibio Line, which is made for people who have the same problems as I have, and I have to say I’m super happy with the products. I use the mask about once or twice a week and it really helps reduce redness. Usually I put it on when I get out of the shower and while I dry my hair. Then when I apply my makeup I put on the cream as a primer before putting on my foundation. I don’t really like to apply foundation on “dry” skin, so I always use a primer or a cream. I feel like this gives you an extra glow as well as making your skin more even. Before I got to bed I ALWAYS remove my make up. There is nothing worse than sleeping with make up. It cloggs your pores, breaks your eyelashes and it’s just not hygenic at all. In the past I really had problems with finding a good makeup-remover. Many that I used made my eyes burn or my face red. The Bioderma makeup remover is super gentle and you don’t even have to wash your face afterwards.
I hope you enjoyed this little look into my make up bag and routine. If you have any questions just commend or write me on Instagram.
