There are products I like so much I repurchase over and over. These are my empties for the month. I don’t wear makeup every single day so naturally I don’t go through makeup at an insane rate like lets say, a makeup artist would. BUT, these are/have become my favorites.
This is benefit’s The Pore Fessional. Now I know this isn’t a primer but a pore minimizer but for me it works amazing all over to keep my makeup in place. I have oily skin. I easily and quickly become oily. This product keeps me oil free pretty much for how ever long I wear my makeup. If I’m wearing a matte foundation it will keep matte for a few hours then I get a “healthy glow”. Meaning I’m not an oil slick just a tiny bit. I also have gotten bigger pores as I age and I think it has to do with wearing makeup and not always removing it properly. This pore minimizer definitely does what it says. So, if like me you have large pores I’d give it try. I started off with the sample size, fell in love, and now I just go ahead and get this size. It last a good amount of time.
Another empty is this Wet n Wild Photofocus setting spray. I personally feel like this setting spray doesn’t get a lot of love on social media. At only $4.99 it’s a steal. I found it set my makeup so well, made it long-lasting, and helped with my oily skin. I went through this so fast because I loved spraying on myself, it felt so refreshing. As you can see Wet n Wild is cruelty free so thats another plus. 🐰 Yay for Bunnies!!
Can ya tell this concealer was used?? Haha! This is Maybelline’s DREAM LUMI™ TOUCH HIGHLIGHTING CONCEALER. This is another product I feel isn’t talked about enough. For me it works amazing for highlighting as it states in the name. When using this I can bypass applying a concealer for my under eye circles. Its not often I need it but if I do I’ll use double concealer. In all honesty thats probably over kill and this would do good on its own. However, IT IS A HIGHLIGHTING CONCEALER. It has such a beautiful even finish (I’ve noticed some Maybelline concealers can look streaky). I can apply it with a stippling brush, beauty blender, and e.l.f.’s concealer brush. To see if I “love” a product I test it every way possible. Definitely need to repurchase this!
Last but definitely not least is Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Pictured here is the sample size but I NEED to get it full size. I have tried other primers, even using concealer as a primer and nothing compares to it. I love I don’t have to set it if I’m in a rush it does good no matter what! Helps with eyeshadows creasing because even my eyelids get oily (insert the new emoji of the eyes rolling!). I do want to try one of Mac’s Paint Pot. But this will ALWAYS be my go to primer.
Thats it for my Empties.
I want to do something different though. I want to start showing you guys who I draw inspiration from and naturally my first person would be my best friend Rocy. She is so knowledgeable when it comes to makeup, hair products, and skin products. I have often referred to her as my “personal makeup guru!!” 😘 If I have any questions I run to her, she often fills me on new products out there, and she’s so gorgeous I often try to recreate her looks, lol! We live many many miles apart but our friendship has withstood it. Going on 10 years strong.
What are some of your favorite empties? Who do YOU draw inspiration from??
