Makeup Products People Use That I Don’t

Lip Liner

So many people can’t put lipstick on without lip liner. I never saw a need for lipliner. I can usually line my lips perfectly fine with my lipstick or liquid lipstick. I can understand using lipliner if you are older and need it to prevent your lipstick from bleeding into wrinkles, but younger people using lipliner is just an extra step I’d rather not do.

False Lashes

I have had a love/hate relationship with falsies for a while. Whenever I see a beauty influencer put falsies on, it looks so good on them. For some reason, I cannot get falsies to look right on my eyes. I have very small lid space, so when I put mascara on, my lashes touch my eyebrows. When I put falsies on, the lashes go almost past my brows. I know you are supposed to trim them, but I just don’t like the look on myself. They don’t look natural on me like they do on some people.

Eyeshadow Primer

I sometimes put concealer on my lids as an eyeshadow primer, but I never use an actual eyeshadow primer. On a daily basis, I don’t use concealer. I just blend my foundation over my eyes and then apply shadow.

Brow Gel

I used to use brow gel when it first became popular. Everyone bought the ABH clear brow gel… you had to have it. I find now that I don’t use it. I usually fill in my brows with a pomade every time I wear makeup. If I apply a clear brow gel over my pomade, it causes my hairs to separate creating gaps that were not there before. Also, I do not like tinted brow gels because those just make my brows look muddy and that’s not a cute look.

Lash Curler

I like the idea of a lash curler but it’s another step in a makeup routine that I just don’t have time for and I don’t care about. I find that they really don’t make a big difference in my lashes. I am fine skipping this step and going straight to applying mascara.

Are there any beauty/makeup products that you see a lot of people use that you don’t? Let me know in the comments below!

Four Favorite Foundation Sticks

fs

Sticks are my favorite when it comes to foundation. I love how easy they are to apply and the formulas work very well on my skin. However, I’ve found that most beauty influencers don’t care for foundation sticks. Don’t let that deter you. You have to try one of my four favorites and see for yourself.

1. Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation
I discovered this one over the summer and it quickly became one of my favorite foundations of all time. It’s super affordable and the shade range is great. The finish is a dewy finish but not too dewy where you will look greasy through out the day.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation
I started using this foundation about a month ago. I was looking to try a new stick foundation and I had heard good reviews. At first I wasn’t sure because it is matte, but after using it for a month, I love it. It is a light coverage, matte foundation that is buildable and looks natural on your skin. I have been into a “no foundation” foundation look lately and this one is perfect.

3. Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
I’ve mentioned this foundation many times on my blog. It is my holy grail foundation and even though it is on the pricier side, it is well worth it. The finish is a satin finish that gives you full coverage without looking cakey or thick. There is something magical about this foundation. I highly recommend it.

4. Tarte Clay Stick Foundation
This was one of the first foundations I tried that made me love stick foundations. The finish is similar to the Makeup Revolution where it’s not super dewy, but it gives you a healthy glow without looking greasy.

Have you tried a stick foundation? Which are your favorites?
