  14. Jan

    For everyday daily – the heat this particular summer has thrown my skin off again and I am finding it that it responds best when I mix things up. The items it seems to respond well to right now:

    1) Cleanser: IMAGE The Max or Vital C Cleansers or
    Shisheido The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam
    2) Eye Care: Shisheido Bio-Performance Super Eye Contour Cream or Lancôme Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate
    3) Moisturizer: IMAGE – either The Max or Vital C
    4) Moisturizing Sunscreen: Shisheido with SPF 55 or custom blend from dermatologist (SPF 30)
    5) Best eyeliner (the only one I’ve found so far that doesn’t smudge on me): Milani Eye Tech Extreme – the only problem is that it doesn’t come in the Navy blue shades I prefer. For Autumn – Spring (or a summer that isn’t quite so hot and humid), I go for a dark blue or navy eyeliner for sure
    6) Some kind of lip moisturizing product to seal in moisture more than add color (gloss, lipstick, pure Vaseline)
    7) Blush tends to stay on my skin a little better than other products during the summer. It also helps to add color since nothing else will stay put. MAC’s Ladyblush cream blush as a base followed by any of the following powder blushes: MAC Gentle, MAC Simmer, NARS Dolce Vita, NARS Rotonde, or Bobbi Brown Blushed (no real favorite although the NARS blushes and MAC Gentle tend to last the longest on me.
    I want to try one of the finishing/setting powders mentioned by others a few days ago. The ones I’ve been using worked well until the humidity set in this summer.

  15. Kristen

    Sibu facial cleanser, Dermalogica Intense Moisture Cream, Anastasia brow pencil in Medium Brown, Milani eyeshadow primer, lots and lots of chapstick. Everything else rotates. Though, I think I’m going back to my Naked Skin foundation everyday now… My skin hates change.

    Shiseido loose powder (the white one)
    Hourglass or bobbi brown concealer
    Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in saddle on my brows and anastasia clear brow gel
    Becca ultimate mascara

    I play with shadows, blushes and lipsticks based on my mood. But if I don’t want to think about it, I use Becca eyetint in baroque, bobbi brown blush in pale pink, and too faced lipstick in teddy berry.

    Can’t wear liner everyday because of transfer :(

    ..oh my goodness, no wonder I take so much time to get ready! Lol.

    • Ah, I actually forgot two products!

      SKIN CARE (night)
      MAC Cleanse Off Oil (Tranquil) and/or MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

      ..I am laughing so much at myself right now for some reason. 😀

  32. It seems like I’ve been trying so many new products lately that there’s almost no consistency. But there are a few things that I use pretty much every day.

    1. Cliniderm SPF 45 sunscreen (The ONLY sunscreen that works for me)
    2. Nuxe Three Roses Micellar Water cleanser
    3. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (Vanilla)
    4. Nars Light Reflecting Setting Powder
    5. Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm (at night)
    6. Mac Paint Pot (Painterly- as a base and colour corrector)

    Because it’s Summer and very humid, I’ve been trying to find something that keeps my skin hydrated but doesn’t leave me feeling oily. I’ve just started using Korres Pomegranate gel-cream, which seems to fit the bill nicely. So that will probably become part of the regimen, at least until the cooler, dryer weather sets in.

  33. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, Blistex lip balm, Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, and (right now) Urban Decay Primer Potion.

  34. Just some sort of moisturizer, primer also changes when I run out. If it’s not too hot outside, I’ll wear theBalm TM. But on a regular, Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, Tarte Smooth Operator Powder (sometimes Palladio Rice Powder with it as well), then some shadow, blush, lipstick, mascara.

  35. yellowlantern

    Estee Lauder illuminating powder gelee in heat wave and Matify Cosmetics Ultra powder. I rotate too much to have anything else be a daily thing. :)

  36. Wwendalynne

    It varies quite a bit, but these are the staples: Sisley daily line preventor serum, Sisley moisturizer, Sisleya eye and lip cream, Guerlain Meteorites primer, Eve Pearl salmon corrector, Rouge Bunny Rouge highlighting cream, Dermablend concealer, RCMA no color powder, Hourglass Dim finishing powder, Chanel Notorious, by Terry rose lip balm.. and everything else varies depending on mood/time.

  40. xamyx

    The only constant is Desert Essence Thouroughly Clean Foaming Face Wash. I also use essential oils every day, but I switch them up based on what I have on hand, the weather, or what I think my skin needs at the time.

    Sunscreen is a daily necessity, and those differ, as well. If I plan to be outdoors all day, I use a physical sunscreen, which has better lasting-power. However, since those days are rare, I typically use L’Oreal Sublime Sun facial sunscreen SPF 50, with either Garnier or Aveeno BB Cream, and a MPF which I touch-up as needed.

    As for “color” cosmetics, I don’t have anything I use regularly, aside from WnW eyebrow pencil. It’s the only one I can find in black, and it’s a “softer” shade, that stays put all day. I switch up mascara as needed, and I don’t have a real preference; I usually go with what’s on-sale, or a GWP/sample, as long as it’s black.

    Weather is the biggest factor in which products I choose, and since it’s been so hot & humid lately, I haven’t even bothered with anything besides sunscreen & sunglasses.

  41. Nikki

    My current go-to products for an everyday look are:

    1) Primer – Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel

    4) Eyeliner – Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Whiskey
    5) Blush – Rock & Republic Blush in Shameless
    6) Setting Spray – MUFE Mist & Fix
    7) Gloss – MAC lipglass in Spice

  42. Lorac’s POREfection baked finishing powder as a foundation, Anastasia brow powder, Caudalie Vinosource Serum, Mario Badescu Botanical gel face wash, Burt’s Bees Soothing Lip Balm with Eucalyptus & Menthol (It’s a really strange texture-almost grainy-but I’ve learned to really love it), MUFE Full Cover Concealer, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind under eye brightener, MAC Paint Pots or Tarte cream eyeshadows (which are fantastic).

  51. Bonnie

    All the Time: Paula’s Choice Lip Treatment Balm (many times a day), discovered this a couple of months ago (MUA reviews)
    Night Time: Boots No. 7 Cleansing and Toning Wipes, L’Bri Gentle Freshener (toner), Retinol prescription cream (used for three months so far) or Paula’s Choice Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment 10% AHA and then moisturizer (using different ones up right now) before bedtime.
    Day Time: L’Bri Gentle Cleanser, L’Bri Intense Moisture Cream (on eyelids – used to use this as my face moisturizer) but discovered this one is more moisturizing for me – Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator on face (discovered this a few months ago on MUA reviews), love it, plus Nivea Crème (blue tin or container) under eyes to prep for concealer
    Concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles in shade Neutralizer and then Brightener shade
    Foundation: Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation in Shade 103 (may go darker) on eyelids in place of eye shadow for a natural look. It lasts all day. Also discovered Rimmel recently and please, please do not judge the color of foundation by the outside shade of the tube. I have fair to medium skin and a lot of the lighter shades are too light for me in this line only. All the shades look orange in the tube but they are not at all – more neutral. Neutral shades are the only ones I will wear.
    Rimmel 201 Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation in Shade 201 (perfect shade for me) on a very moisturized face (Clinique, see above) and I use a small amount of foundation since it is thick and pigmented. Used to use Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer in the Shade Luminous. Still have a full tube not opened. It really evens out your skin tone.
    Brown Spot: Right now I am using Wet ‘n’ Wild Coverall in Shade Fair/Light (816) or Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl in Shade Nude, just use a dab on one brown spot
    Eyebrows: ELF Clear Gel Mascara on eyebrows (I get my eyebrows dyed when I get my roots done)
    Face: Smashbox Hydrating Perfecting Powder and Smashbox Halo Long Wear Blush (sometimes)
    Used to use this all the time and I have gotten lazy. Need to get this back out. I remember I loved the results.
    Just bought Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Blush to try per recommended MUA reviews.
    Lips: Paula’s Choice Lip Treatment Balm as mentioned above, Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss, Revlon Super Lustrous Shine Lipstick in Shades Fuchsia (815) and Kissable Pink (805), Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss Shades in Pink Pop and Pinkissimo
    Mascara: Eyelash Curler plus Cover Girl Clump Crusher by Lash Blast in Shade Black right now.
    I have so many other brands to use up.
    Eyeliner: Just bought Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Liner in Shade Black to try per recommended MUA reviews.
    I like to do my research!

    It varies a lot! But, right now, daily routine wise for makeup, I’m really loving ARDENCY INN Americana Custom Coverage Concentrate, VICHY Dermablend in Opal 12, the new GIVENCHY Teint Couture Long-Wearing Fluid Foundation & GIVENCHY Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara is amazing, DIOR Matte & Luminous Loose Powder, ARDENCY INN Punker Original Smokey Shadow, and NARS blush in Sex Appeal.

    That said, the only things I really can’t live without every day is my Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum, Chanel eyelash curler and La Prairie Brow Pencil in Taupe. I’m not leaving the house without my brows!

  61. Too bothered to list skincare, it’s mostly Bodyshop, Lush and Mary Kay.


    Well. I spent a year making sure that I have as many MAC items as I can and, looking back I cannot say it was without success. So now I use all MAC. Don’t judge me, please, makeup costs much more where I live, plus we don’t have that much choice here, so this is the best I can afford and I try to use the best I can afford :))

    Daily Favorites!


    Foaming Cleanser (am)
    Beauty Elixr (throughout the day)

    Bobbi Brown:
    Hydrating Face Tonic
    Hydrating Eye Cream (am)
    Extra Eye Repair Cream (pm)
    Hydrating Gel Cream
    SPF 50 Face Base
    Soothing Cleansing Oil (pm)

    Kiehls Midnight Recovery for face and eye (pm)
    Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil
    Yes to Cucumber wipes (if I’m lazy!)
    Avene Thermal Spring Water
    Fresh Soy Face Exfoliant (3x week)
    Philosophy Microdelivery Triple Acid Brightening Peel Pad (1x week)


    My go-to daily makeup is much simpler, I often just do my brows and wear a bright lipstick! But my basics are:

    Vanilla Radiant Creamy Concealer
    Finland Tinted Moisturizer
    Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder
    Kinshasa Brow Gel
    Copacabana Multiple (for nighttime, usually)
    Madrague eyeshadow duo
    Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, if I wear eye makeup
    Douceur or Mata Hari blush
    Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil (for nude)
    Dragon Girl, Damned, Funny Face, Schiap, Red Square, Cruella, etc (for bright lip)
    Waterproof Makeup Remover for pm

    Smashbox Soft Lights Powder Highlighter in Shimmer
    MAC Stud brow pencil
    Urban Decay Perversion Pencil or Too Faced Perfect Black Waterproof
    Tarte Exposed Blush
    Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner Pen

    Needless to say I don’t use every single one of the makeup products every day, but these are my tried and true top favorites that I adore. I usually do minimal makeup, but a full look for me would either be black smudgy liner all over and in top and bottom waterlines, nude cheek, and nude lip, or a crisp black cat eye with a bright lip and rosy cheek. I believe skincare is the most important thing, your foundation will only ever look as good as your skin.

    1. Too Faced Shadow Insurance
    2. Revlon Face Primer
    3. Skin79 Lovely Girl BB Cream
