Last week after struggling to get coverage from a very broken compact (see photo below), I realized that I had accumulated a ton of makeup that I never use anymore and have run low on some of my essentials. While I was pregnant I sort of let my mama maintenance go by the wayside and have run low on some of my favorite grooming products, makeup being at the top of the list. I decided to toss out the excess/expired products and start fresh with a few of my favorites.
Since I have been on a real cleaning binge, this was the perfect opportunity to minimize my makeup and get more organized in the process. I emptied out an old suitcase full of makeup and organized everything on my dresser and put my products in a few different containers, including my coveted LAB Lagny crock. I recommend stocking up on new goods and cleaning out the old prior to having your baby so you don't have another item on your hefty to-do list.
Here is a list of my bare necessities for a minimal makeup regimen
Moisturizer | I have been using argon oil like this instead of moisturizer
Concealer | This concealer has great coverage for dark circles from long nights
Powder | Yesterday I got this powder because of the organic ingredients Josie Marin uses
Bronzer or Blush | I just purchased this bronzer made from Amazonian Clay
Mascara | I have been using this mascara for years and love it
Lipstick day | I love this nude lipstick for everyday use
Lipstick night | Every girl needs red lipstick. Period. I like this matte finish red
