It’s Makeup Monday! Ready for a bunch of ridiculously close close-ups? Yeah, that’s what’s this post is. I usually forget to take close-ups of my makeup, but this time I didn’t! In fact, they might be too up-close… LOL! I can never get it right. I’ve been doing the same eye makeup for days now. It’s quick to do and it only required two different eye shadows. And if you read my makeup rediscovery post you know that I’ve switched foundations. This one is a little lighter and matches my Winter shade better. More details below!
Makeup I used
Here’s the makeup I used for this look.
-Etos Skin Smoothing Primer (Etos is drugstore in the Netherlands)
-Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation in ‘tan-deep’ (great foundation if you have oily skin)
-Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in ‘Caramel’ (under my eyes)
-Make Up For Ever Duo Mat Powder Foundation in ‘209’ (to ‘set’ everything)
-NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

I have officially run out of my black|Up Matifying Fluid Foundation. It’s sad, because I love that foundation and the brand black Up is not available in stores in the US. Of course I could order it online, but I currently have so many foundations in my collection that buying a new one is not wise! I really need to finish the ones I have, before they go bad. So last night I was looking through my stash and I discovered a Tarte foundation that I bought almost two years ago: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation. A makeup rediscovery that was meant to be!
I bought this foundation, loved it but then I stopped using it because it became Summer and it didn’t match my skin tone anymore. I put it away and of course totally forgot about it (I have too much makeup!). Then last night I tried it again (after making sure it wasn’t expired) and guess what? I still love it! It matches me perfectly now, because it’s Winter. It covers well and lasted all night long. My shade is ‘tan-deep’.

Time for me to answer another beauty question! I haven’t done one of these in a while! Today’s topic is makeup application. When it comes to applying your foundation, there’s 3 ways to do it: you can use your fingers, a sponge or use makeup brushes.
I prefer using makeup brushes to apply my makeup. Yes, brushes are more expensive than using your fingers and sponges are cheaper than brushes, but I still prefer brushes. Here’s why!
☻ I do NOT like touching my face with my fingers. Even though I always wash my hands before applying makeup, I still don’t feel comfortable. I have sensitive skin and I feel that using my fingers will cause irritation and end up giving me breakouts, because of bacteria. My brushes, however, I don’t let them get dirty. I have a lot of them and I wash them at least once a week (yes, sometimes twice!).
☻ Using a sponge creeps me out even more. I have to admit: I would love to get my hands on the infamous beautyblender, just to see if it leaves my skin as amazing as people say. BUT, I feel that sponges get dirty easily and grow the most bacteria. They come in contact with your fingers and they are harder to sanitize.
