Make Up Addict - Summer Favorites

Updated: Apr 2, 2019

As a make-up addict I use a lot of different products, but not all of them give me the flawless results I aim for in a make-up look. When doing my make-up my main concern is for it to last for a long time and to look good.

My current favorites that are:

- The NYX Angel Veil primer - this primer is very inexpensive and it actually helps your foundation look great for many hours. It's what I wear everyday for work and outings with friends, it gives you at least 6h before you need to retouch your make-up.Great for combination to oily skin.

- Lâncome Teint Idole Ultra Wear/ Make-up HD - I have been mixing these two foundations to get my skin tone right. The Lâncome foundation is too light for me and the Make Up Forever is too dark. I have been mixing foundations for sometime now, I used to just wear one as it is, but with time I started realizing that none of the foundation matched me as I wanted, I've started to see that in pictures, there was a clear demarcation line between my color and the foundation and I didn't like that, so I started experimenting with mixing foundations. I confess that at first I wasn't very excited as I believed that the products should just fit us out of the box, but truth is that there are a lot of different undertones, there isn't a perfect foundation for everyone, even though some come pretty close to our skin tone.

- Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette - This is one of the most expensive palettes I bought and it is worth every cent in my amateur opinion (lol), I love the colors of this palette as they are highly pigmented, and so beautiful. They last for a very long time and are not very difficult to blend. I always end up using this palette when I do a look even if it's just one color.

- Ben Nye Topaz Translucid Powder - I am pretty sure I am one of the only people who wears this setting powder as most people wear the Laura Mercier one (that I haven't tried on yet). But I really like it and how it looks when I set my concealer with it.

MAC Gold Deposit - This highlight is sooo beautiful, I love the glow it gives your skin as if you are shining from within.

I wear a lot of products, but right now these are my main ones the ones I trust that will give me great results.

What about you what are your favorite summer/current products?
