Favourite Long-Wearing Makeup for Combination Skin | Face of The Day Video

Favourite eyeshadow palette


Some people find makeup a chore, and I totally understand that sentiment. It’s a pleasure for me having a makeup-free weekend, since any 15 minutes dedicated to sleeping is a godsend after a long week. 

But when I do go glam, I don’t like reapplying throughout the day. I want my full-face of makeup to be budge-proof for 15 hours, so here’s how I do it!


Products Used:

1. PRIMER

$ Nivea 2-IN-1 MOISTURIZING PRIMER DRY TO SENSITIVE SKIN

  • This is an awesome moisturizing primer from the drugstore. I often apply a bit of serum (Bioderma or Avène) then this on top. It isn't oily so your makeup won't break down.

$$$ Smashbox PHOTO FINISH PRIMERIZER 

  • I haven't tried this yet, but it appears that my favourite hydrating primer from Smashbox is discontinued and this looks similar. My other favourite is the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, it's OUSTANDING in the winter. Make sure to apply your foundation immediately after Beauty Flash Balm to ensure it sets and adheres to the primer properly.

2. EYE PRIMER

$ Milani EYESHADOW PRIMER

  • Milani makes my favourite eye primer of all time. It can be purchased at Rexall or select Loblaws stores, and only costs $10.

$$ Revlon COLORSTAY CRÈME EYE SHADOW Shade 730

  • An amazing drugstore find, these cream shadows rival designer alternatives. You should try them out - perfect for on-the-go with a little hidden brush in the cap.

3. EYE SHADOWS

$$$ Charlotte Tilbury BIGGER BRIGHTER EYES - EXAGGER-EYES

Best shadow palette I've ever used. Hands down. Four complementing eyeshadow shades to take from desk to dusk to disco: This eyeshadow palette quad features an ivory-cream, rose-gold, red-brown and a transparent sparkle shade to create the illusion of wider, brighter-looking eyes. Inspired by the sparkling, eye-widening filters of social media! Charlotte shadows are literal perfection, but can be duped with drugstore options:

Pigmented, blendable eye shades in a portable palette curated by Weylie are teamed up with a 2-in-1 black kohl pencil and liquid eyeliner duo to make this kit the perfect everyday eye essential. $28.00


7. CONCEALER

$$$ GRAFTOBIAN HD CREME PALETTES Concealer Palette 

$$ Vichy TEINT IDEAL CONCEALER 

  • I love keeping this in my handbag, it's cooling with the roller ball and feels great under my eyes.

$ Rimmel WAKE ME UP CONCEALER 


8. CREAM BLUSH

$ Pixi MultiBalm in Soft Strawberry 

A great product to incorporate into your "Lazy Girl" beauty routine.

9. CREAM CONTOUR

$ Pixi MultiBalm in Sheer Sculpt

$$$ SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base

Creams work great because you can move them around, and they do not go patchy like some powders. Then if there's too much shine or you need a bulletproof finish, you can top with a light dusting of powder products - that'll also add some extra depth.

11. POWDER HIGHLIGHTER, BLUSH, BRONZER 

$$ Pixi Café con Dulce Palette (I ADORE THIS!)  


12. CREAM HIGHLIGHT



13. BROWS

$$$ Kat Von D Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade & #70 Pomade Brow Brush 


legendary lashes volume 2

  • Do you have lashes that are prone to mascara flaking? The Shiseido tubing mascara will change your life. Applies thick and voluminous, comes off easily with warm water. This mascara coats each individual lash without clumping for full, intense lashes. All day smudge-proof formula. Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. Zero raccoon eyes, and I LOVE that. I have super oily skin which is terribly prone to smudging less than 1 hour after applying mascara. I really like tubing mascara to solve the oil problem. I wear contact lenses and tubing mascara never annoys them like most other mascaras. Tubing mascaras can sometimes appear spidery, but they are truly budge-proof until you remove with warm water. With this Shiseido one in dark brown, I get just enough definition and volume, but most importantly - a super easy removal.

15. LIPS

That's the look!
