Best Light Complexion & Cool-Toned Makeup 2021

I see so many influencers use warm-toned makeup but what about us cool-toned gals?! If you have a light complexion & cool-toned skin like me, then you had to figure out the best makeup on your own too. So here are my favorite products for our skin type! I should also mention I have dry skin so you will see more hydrating products. For Makeup, I shop from Ulta, Sephora, and Amazon so the products will vary from high to low. My favorite dupe brand is NYX! If you are also looking as a mom here is a link to my 7 Helpful Mom Tools Blog Post.

Best Light Complexion & Cool-Toned Makeup
  • Benefit Pore-fessional Hydrating Primer {FAVORITE}
    • It will really smooth pores but can clog pores fast. I have to make sure I wash my face when I use this primer. Amazon Link
  • NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer
    • This is also a heavy primer for pores and will also break me out if I don’t wash my face at the end of the day. Amazon Link

    • Glassy is very Hydrating, it doesn’t break me out, but calmer than the first two in pore blurring. Ulta Link

    • I can tell when I don’t wear this, my eye makeup doesn’t last as long at all! It keeps your eye makeup from smudging or moving to your crease. Amazon Link
