makeup update

This kind of posts make me realize how much my dressing table products have changed over time. So here is an update of my skin care and makeup favorites.

My morning basic is Clinique pore refining serum and recently I've added Enzymion moisturizer by Lush to my morning routine, they keep my oily skin under control during all day, and instead of foundation I put over the Bb cream in medium/deep by Garnier, I prefer it than foundation cuz I get a more natural-healthy look, and the most important, I haven't suffered from midday makeup meltdown anymore (all the oily-skin-type-girls out there know what I'm talking about).
For those days that I look like a zombie more than usual (or during hangover mornings) an extra moisturizer dosage of Baume Beauté Eclair by Clarins is like a double shot of espresso for the face, it looks brighter and smoother. For the eyes I use All About Eyes by Clinique, sometimes I put a little bit over the foundation/bbcream and let it dry before Touche Éclat makes its magic. I've tried tons of under-eye concealers but no one works better than him. However best ones to hide and contour are MAC, I use Studio Finish in three tones: NW15 (lighter), NW45 (darker) and NW25 that matches my skin color. I don't use those three every day, only for night out makeup or similar.
Another currently favorites are Dark Angels cleanser and Guerlain Super-Aqua mask, I use them once or twice a week, after them, I usually place 2 drops of Clarins Hydraquench serum on my palms and pat it on, it's really fresh and super moisturizing. For any unknown reason the girls from Lush at Mandalay in Vegas didn't allow me to buy the big pot of Dark Angels cleanser, that's the first time I use it so I wonder if it's going to expire very soon... because a bottle of perfume broke during flight and the sticker is now blurry.
Regarding makeup, MAC is my favorite brand out there, I've been using Brun eyeshadow for years; but Makeup forever and Sephora also got some cool colors. I've recently discovered Sweetpea & Fay and NYX in Walgreens, I only bought two pigments and a eyeliner, but my sister got half of the beauty department so I'll borrow some cuties. I keep using Benefit tint for cheeks, last time I bought the trio, but Sun Beam is still my favorite.
I don't usually spend too much money in tools and brushes (I prefer steal them from my makeupjunkiesister),  I've got a MAC #187 to apply foundation and a couple of random brushes for blending and shading. Sephora and Ecotools have some cheaper alternatives that I really love.
And that's all, hope you find it useful!
