I wear loreal true match foundation with covergirl sensitive skin pressed powder. For my spots I use a cheapy drug store stick concealer with tea tree oil in it.

It does the job, but I am looking into getting a new foundation. To remove my make up, I use derma intensive fragrance free wipes, they are $2 at my grocery store.

Mascara - 100% pure's mascara. freak amazing. before this brand, I was using L'oreal carbon black and that was AMAZING... but I wanted a more natural product.

Eyeliner - Revlon i think? i forget

Lipstick - MAC lipsticks only. $14.00 a pop! but sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo worth it.

Foundation - used to wear bare minerals but it broke me out so I haven't worn foundation in a LONG LONG LONG LONG TIME. have ordered earth's beauty mineral foundation so i will see how that goes....

How I remove my makeup: OIL... I will use castor oil, almond oil, or olive oil to wipe it off. Then rinse with water.

I usually use bare minerals but have just bought bourjois healthy mix foundation. To remove (and cleanse my face at the same time) I lather up with the body shop tea tree oil facial cleanser, rinse, then use a simple cleansing milk to remove all traces of make up and other grime, once my face is totally clean I rinse again with lukewarm water, pat dry and apply body shop tea tree oil toner with a cotton pad, once that's dry I apply my duac gel, if my skin is dry I will also moisturise.

I use Maybeline BB creams and Loreal foundation, and random powders sometimes. I also use blush and mascara.

I use two face washes to wash my face because I realized that my makeup wasn't coming off all the way =O

I first use either an acne face wash (Acnes brand) and then Shiseido white lucent foaming cleanser or vice versa :]

I use:

Makeup Forever HD foundation ( only on a few red spots, never all over my face. I put this foundation on about 2% of my face just with my finger. I use it more as a concealer. )

Some Drugstore covergirl pressed powder my grandmother got me

I also use a highlighting powder under my eyes and light blush from BH cosmetics

Drugstore mascara

To take this off I just use oats as a cleanser. Takes it ALL off surprisingly.

I use make up forever HD and bb cream, both in the palest possible shades lol. XD for removal, I've been using Cetaphil cleanser.. but I'm trying more natural stuff now. I just got an organic soap bar called Grandpa's Oatmeal Soap and it seems pretty nice, not too drying, and it doesn't have any fake ingredients! it gets rid off my makeup pretty effectively too. :)

i also tone at night using apple cider vinegar. Then I apply vitamin e oil or olive oil or both, depending on how dry my skin is. I have super dry skin that flakes everywhere. ;_; Sometimes on top of this I use evening primrose oil topically. to others this may seem like a lot of oil but I believe it helps me and gives my skin more of a glow.

Well the amount of make up I wear really depends on the occasion... I tend to do the face routine daily and I'll add on other products from there. The face routine seems like a lot, but right now it's working for me to keep my skin from looking super gross with a layer of foundation and oil mixed together over it.

Face:

Primer- NYX Shine Killer Primer

Foundation- Garnier Skin Renew BB cream for Oily/Combo skin

(optional) Concealer- The Body Shop Tea Tree Concealer stick

(optional) Bronzer- The brand is Cargo (I bought it a long time ago so I don't really remember anything else about it)

Pressed Powder- The brand is Physicians Formula. I think it's just their organic wear translucent powder (I bought it a long time ago)

Setting spray- NYX Matte Finish setting spray

Add ons: Eyeshadow- Revlon colorstay mineral eyeshadow trio in Tiger Eye or Bare minerals eyeshadow in desire, Eyeshadow primer- NYX eyeshadow base (This is the best primer I've ever bought! I wore an eyeshadow today with it underneath. Applied it at 11:30 am, wore it until 7 pm. Not a single crease! Highly recommend it), Eyeliner- Covergirl perfect blend eye pencil in black brown, Mascara- Covergirl Lashblast fusion in very black, Lip- Covergirl Nature Luxe gloss balm in Sandstone or just a plain nivea lip balm

I know it seems like a lot, but I'm actually not a huge make up person. Like I've basically listed all of the makeup that I own on here. I don't buy a lot of crazy stuff and I tend to stick to neutral shades.

To remove this I use The Body Shop's Gentle Camomille Eye Makeup remover and for my face I just use baby wipes. Then I continue with my normal cleansing routine. I like to use the wipes and make up remover first, that way I know I've gotten all my make up off before I go to bed.

I used Nars Sheer Glow to even out my complexion- and remove with Bioderma on a cotton wool before cleansing my skin. Bioderma is beautiful stuff. :)

Since Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is essentially coloured superglue my makeup removal routine is one of stages.

1. Warm shower + exfoliating scrub.

2. Makeup wipe.

3. BHA on a cotton pad.

4. Retin-A.

Its 100% removed by stage 3.

Well I don't have acne anymore, but when I did I used the N07 cleansing Balm as it's very gentle, effective and didn't upset my skin:

Foundation: LilyLolo mineral foundation

Concealer: LilyLolo mineral concealer

Blusher: LilyLolo mineral blusher

(Can you tell I really like LilyLolo? ^^)

Mascara: Nivea Elastic Lash

Eyeshadow: MUA, LilyLolo, Vivo Cosmetics, Catrice,...

Lipstick: most often tinted lip balms, otherwise from Catrice, MUA, Vivo cosmetics,...

I'm an MUA (well, in the midst of my training) so I have A LOT of makeup, but these are definitely the things I prefer using myself.

To get it all off I use either Bioderma or L'Oréal miscellair water for sensitive skin. Works really, really well! And is so easy :)

Question for you- Do you feel like your Clarisonic has helped improve your acne in anyway? I've always been curious about those...

I don't think it's decreased my acne much - maybe a bit. I have hormonal breakouts so no matter how clean my skin is, it's gonna break out. But I love my Clarisonic because it fades hyperpigmentation much faster, speeds healing up on popped zits, and keeps my large/oily pores cleaner.
