Let’s talk about makeup! Primer, foundation, eyeliner, lip liner, lipstick, lip gloss, eye shadow, mascara, concealer, bronzer, blush, highlighter, brow pencil. This is not the day and age of your grandma’s makeup where she dabbed lipstick on her cheeks to make them rosy. Cute little grandmas! There’s so many different brands and types of makeup now. I think the first time I walked into a Sephora I just stared, blank and bare faced before deciding to leave overwhelmed.
I’ve never really been one to wear makeup because, honestly, I didn’t know how to properly apply it and felt so overwhelmed. I wasn’t a fan of all the crazy colors – blue, purple, and green lipsticks? No thanks. I prefer to not look like I’m dressed up for Halloween every single day. Also, what is BB cream? And wait, do I put primer on first or foundation? And contour? What the heck is that? Is that French for a “boat ride”?
Until, one day, I decided to start wearing makeup consistently at the ripe age of 24. And since I’m not all about having a ton of makeup (or spending THAT much money) I’ve decided to get the basics from a company I love. Which, as a mom, is perfect. I don’t have time to spend 20 minutes doing my face.
My routine? Primer, foundation, and mascara. That’s it. Boom! Done. And the company brand name? Everyday Minerals is the mineral makeup company that I’ve chosen to use for a few reasons.
1.) They’re 100% vegan, sustainable, and cruelty free.
2.) They use no nonsense ingredients in their products, which I buy their primer and foundation for my simple routine.
3.) They offer FREE samples you can order ONLINE so you can try before you fork out money to buy (icing on the cake!). You just pay shipping!
Personally I think #3 is the BEST part about this company. I mean, HELLO! Free samples you can order online? Wait, wait Kassi…are you saying that I don’t have to lug the kids to a makeup store and buy a $30 container of makeup only to find out that it’s the wrong shade? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
And you can’t have makeup without a makeup bag. I bought this cute little makeup bag at Target to hold my Everyday Minerals makeup. So simple and adorable! It’s also washable so in case your toddler (or you) spills a bunch of makeup in there it’s no big deal. Just throw it in the washer on a gentle cycle!
What’s your makeup routine and favorite makeup?
