My beauty routine will always have two things: something new, and a brand or product that I’ve been loving for a long time.
It’s important to discover what’s up and coming, not just due to my job, but also because I’m always curious.
For instance, if you’ve noticed, I love makeup. That’s why I have recently integrated into my routine It Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer. It’s a thick but blendable cream that guarantees waterproof, crease-proof and trademarked expression-proof coverage.
I apply it with a brush. It Cosmetics itself recommends the Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Concealer Brush. It consists of a small, detailed brush end, while the other end is a big brush that you can use to apply powder to set your concealer.
The concealer is multipurpose. It consists of 24 different shades and you can use a lighter shade as your highlight color and a darker shade for your contour.
In a previous article and video, I showed how I use different tones of face makeup to achieve a well-blended contour, concealer and highlighter. I think this concealer will soon be a favorite.
I’ve long been a fan of Becca Cosmetics. This Australian brand is about celebrating unique beauty. Its website says, “No matter your age, style, face shape, skin type or tone, Becca empowers you to find your best light, glow your own way—and make each day better than the last.”
You’ve probably heard of Becca through its vlogger-favorite highlighters or through its collab with Khloé Kardashian and her BFF Malika Haqq.
It has a wide range of lip products, such as the Ultimate Lipstick Love. Available in 29 shades, from classic nudes to dark reds and browns, it gives a full pigment and also a boost of hyaluronic acid to the lips. It leaves a moisturizing feel.
Hyaluronic acid has long been an ingredient in various skincare products for its water-retaining abilities. The acid helps lock in moisture and makes your skin look more plump.
Use it with the Becca Ultimate Lip Definer. If the lipstick has lip-loving elements, so does the lip definer which contains jojoba oil.
This lip liner is creamy and easy to use. It glides on the lips easily, without any tugging. It’s something you can use even on the go.
I will take a shade or two, as it has a built-in precision tool and sharpener. It makes retouching convenient.
All products are available at one of my favorite online beauty sources, sephora.ph.
