1. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder, 2. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation, 3. L'oreal Lineur Intense, 4. Nars Eyeshadow Base, 5. Clinique Even Better Foundation, 6. Nars Pore Refining Primer, 7. Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Yes, I know I have two foundations on there haha The Neutrogena shade I have (10 - classic ivory) is just a bit too pale and the Clinique shade that I have (05 - neutral) is way too dark, so I mix them to achieve a better colour match. I really like the way they mix and look on my face, so I stick with it.
For eye primers, I like the NARS, but I've used Urban Decay Primer Potion & Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I like all three (the only one I've tried and didn't like was Benefit's Stay Don't Stray - my eyelids are too oily for that one). I'm not really loyal to face powders; I used to use one from Covergirl (really liked it) and I had Stay Matte from Rimmel (ehh not my favourite) before this one from Maybelline, which I quite like. I've used Benefit Hoola for years now, and I like it but my box is almost done and I've been looking into a new bronzer (NARS Laguna? Too Faced Milk Chocolate? Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder?) just to try something new. The NARS primer is really nice - gel based & no silicone! - but I also really love the Laura Mercier Face Primer.
Here's how I apply everything: After moisturizer & sunscreen, I do my eyes - usually just a pale shadow all over my lid, darker one in the crease, highlight under my brow, then winged liner & mascara. Then I do my face: primer, foundation, concealer, powder, then blush/bronzer. I switch up my blush depending on what I feel like - either a coral or pink usually. I'm not a lipstick person; I have a few that I like and a few glosses and I tend to stick with those. (Nail polish is my splurge area, not lipstick haha)
