Since my skin is super sensitive to many different natural and synthetic ingredients I am limited to what I can and can not put on my face which includes skincare and makeup. So I try to do my best to test products which are best suitable for my skin type. Here are few of my tried and tested products which I enjoy using regularly.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is my ride or die makeup product. It makes my skin feel like I have nothing on and gives a beautiful natural glow with out the shimmer (which I totally dislike). It is by far the best tinted moisturizer I have ever used as far as I can remember. The shade I wear is called Cuzco which has a warm golden undertone matches my skin beautifully. In the summer time I have been wearing this on my face almost everyday. I do not feel the need to add any powder to set it since my skin is more on the dry side. It stays on beautifully on its own. The only time I may want to add a bit of setting powder will be the time when I use a a powder blush or a bronzer. Honestly it is very difficult to find a color that matches my skin tone both in the green and mainstream beauty world but mostly in the green beauty world. I have never truly been 100% satisfied with a base shade when I had to try anything from natural brands. It was always either too dark or too light. I had to adjust my makeup by mixing with many different shades of foundations or tinted moisturizers. So this product is truly the best one for me!! Love Love Love!!!
The second product I love is the Nars concealers. Ok I have featured only one here but I do have another one which I will be talking about on a later date. I love using Nars creamy long wearing concealer because unlike other concealers it does not irritate or cause any breakouts on my skin and the shade Ginger in *perfect* for me. It has a creamy smooth finish without the cakeyness (you get it right?). It wears all day which is even better!!
When I am in a hurry and need to put some quick makeup on I always tend to reach to for cream blushes. One of my favorite cream blushes which I have used a lot during the summer months is the Vapour Beauty Aura Multi-Use Blush. I am in love with this shade because it is a baby soft pink color which I have rarely seen in the beauty market (or maybe I haven’t looked hard enough). This is an all natural blush which gives my cheeks a beautiful color. I just use my fingers to apply this blush. Since it is a multi-tasker I love to use it on my lips as well as on my eyes.
My go to brow pencil has been the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Over the years after giving birth to my kids I have noticed that my brows have become very thin. As much as I have enjoyed using the Eco Brow before I have noticed that using the Brow Wiz takes waaay less time for me and it is much easier to apply on my very thin brows. I feel that my brows look more natural and I can easily carry this pencil with me anywhere I travel.
My go to lip liner has been my Zuii Organic Liner in Spice. I love this shade because it is more of an universal shade which can be applied with any lipsticks. I am a huge fan of lip liners and I can not dress my lips with wearing any lip liners. I carried this liner with me wherever I have traveled during the holidays and it has never failed me. This is by far one of the best natural lip liners I have ever tried. Totally in love!!!!
My go to lip balm for the summer has been the S.W. Basics Organic Cinamon lip balm. It is creamy, smooth and very easy to apply on the lips. I always wore this lip balm when I had to prep my skin for lipstick/lip liner. Made simply with only four natural organic ingredients this lip balm is better than aaamazing!!! I am very picky with my lip balms and not too many have impressed me as much as this one. So this one is definitely a winner on my favorites’ list.
