Student budget oblige, I have been really good at finishing my beauty products before opening/buying new ones and just use all the things I had accumulated in my beauty stash. I must admit that I had to stop reading beauty blogs to avoid temptation.
I cannot remember in which post I mentioned this, but lately, I have so much on my mind that I do not have the brain space to worry about things such as makeup. Don’t quote me on this but I am pretty sure that I read somewhere that many successful people such as Steve Job or Barack Obama wear the same outfit daily in order to have to avoid making small decisions that occupy brain space, in order to focus on what they really want to achieve.
I actually get it. Why spend so much energy deciding on the colour of your blush while you can just wear the one that you know suits you? I’ve now cut down my makeup routine to 3 min, no kidding and here are 3 of the products I have been using and just finished.
Benefit They’re Real mascara
I absolutely love this mascara and this was my 3rd tube. I love that it’s really black and that you can easily build up on it, from one coat for a daily look to several for a more dramatic one. I will buy another tube.
Bourjois Healthy Balance powder
It’s a very good unifying powder that you can build up for more or less coverage. On good skin days, I do not need a tinted moisturiser or foundation, this does the job. I will buy it again. It’s perhaps as good and more accessible than the Clinique one I used in the past.
Maybelline Intant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle concealer
I discovered this concealer a long time ago thanks to French blogger Coline. This is my second tube. I absolutely love it, it has good coverage, doesn’t look cakey and doesn’t show my mini wrinkles. I also use it to conceal blemishes. The problem is that I haven’t been able to find it in my latest trips to Boots. Hopefully I can perhaps find it during this short trip to France. Otherwise, what budget concealer do you recommend?
