Over the years, I have tried wearing a lot of different makeup brands and after a lot of hits and misses, I’ve decided to compile a list of my favorites to help you avoid the duds. When it comes to makeup, the main thing I look for is high performance, application quality, and color.
As a person with very sensitive, fair, and dry skin– I like to stay away from beauty items that contain a bunch of unpronounceable chemical ingredients that can generally irritate, dry out, and cause my skin to flare up. The products that I mainly use are moisturizing, contain some sort of SPF, and must stay in place (preferably through humid weather) with minimal touch-ups for an extended amount of time. Because whether it’s for a convention or just a long day, I don’t like to carry around a bunch of different makeup and fill up my purse with all of that weight just to keep fixing makeup that moved or faded.
So whether you’re a cosplayer or just someone who likes to wear makeup, give these a try and let me know what you think. We can gush about it together! XD
Tarte! Can I just tell you how much I love Tarte? I’ve been using them for a few years now and still can’t stop raving about them. <3
