Bare Essentials

Make up for me has always been kind of a lost cause. Alongside being relatively low maintenance in general, my job makes looking cute virtually impossible.

I always end up covered in polish and having to wash my face multiple times a day. To make matters worse, my skin is really oily. This is a blessing and a curse. Long term, if i’m anything like my parents, it means i’ll look 10 years younger than I actually am when I hit the 40 year mark. The downside is when I wear a full on face of makeup, within an hour it’s halfway down my face and I look as though i’ve applied it with a shot gun. It doesn’t help that i’m also lazy AF and hate reapplying makeup. I just wanna slap it on my mug and have done with it until it’s time to wash it off.

Over the years i’ve found a few products which are both easy to apply, stay where they’re meant to and have the added bonus of looking natural on.
