JAIMI'S TRIED & TRUE MAKEUP FAVORITES
I used to try new makeup all the time (I was a beauty blogger). Now I rarely change a thing. Here are the products that occupy the coveted spaces inside my makeup bag.
My tried & true products I never stray from...
This is the perfect foundation for me. It’s a considerable amount of coverage but looks so natural and radiant. I have no reason to try other things, I think I’m like 20 refills in.
This is such a small brand but I love this powder. I don’t like a slippery powder and even though this one is kind of annoying to get because it’s from such a small brand I love it because it’s made with rice starch and is mattifying but doesn't feel drying.
I always use a little bronzer to add some dimension to my face, not to look tan. I need it to not be too brown and have no shimmer but also go on subtly. This one is perfect. Just a little under my blush.
I don’t mess with other mascaras. This is it for me. Unfortunately, it’s one of the few products I use thats not clean. I use normal formulation (not waterproof) with the straight brush.
Just a little of this living luminizer at the cheekbones and bridge of my nose and voila — radiance!
I literally only wear this lip color right now. It is the perfect red and it feels so good on my lips. It’s not too matte to feel nice and it’s not too emollient to stay put. Honestly, red lipstick is my #1 beauty trick to looking put together.
The color is not only beautiful, but also food for the skin and senses with thoughtfully chosen organic ingredients that act as skincare first.
