Hey y’all! Today I am sharing with you my current makeup routine. I have done a few of these in the past, but I love makeup and my routine has changed so why not write a post about it?
Let’s start with face products! I am going to be sharing my makeup routine in the order I apply the products.
I typically start out my makeup routine by applying my favorite moisturizer sunscreen. For primer, I have been trying out this Hourglass Primer, which is great for oily skin. I got this deluxe sample from Sephora and I am loving it.
For my actual face makeup, I switch between wearing a CC Cream and a powder. If I’m not wearing either of those, I’m trying out something new or I’m going bare faced. I don’t wear makeup everyday, so going bare faced isn’t uncommon. I rarely ever wear actual “foundation” unless I’m filming a video. For the Tarte powder, I wear the color “Light-Medium Neutral” and for the CC Cream, I use the color “Light.” I also sometimes use this powder foundation (shown above).
My all time favorite concealer. I love this Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer (I have mentioned it before here.) because it looks so natural and it blends so seamlessly under my eyes. I typically only use this under my eyes. I actually rarely put concealer on my face, but if I did, I would use this same concealer. I wear the color “Light-Medium Neutral.”
I have had this blush for a long time and I still love it (3 years later… Should I be throwing it out yet?). This was actually a limited edition Nars shade in the color, “New Attitude,” so I’m not sure if they have it anymore. I love it because it is bright and very cheerful.
I mentioned this bronzer in this video and I still love it! It looks natural and never orange in color. I love it because it’s very hard to over-do and its great for beginners. I think it only comes in one color, “Healthy Glow.”
I recently jumped into the world of highlighter and I’m not looking back. Highlighting is so fun and sparkly! I am still getting the hang of it- I’m trying to find a happy medium between too much and too little in the application. I either use Mac “Soft and Gentle” or Colourpop “Churro.” They are both very similar in color, but “Churro” is more glowy, while “Soft and Gentle” has more sparkle to it.
Next up is eyes! This is arguably my favorite part because it allows so much creativity.
My favorite eyeshadow primer is definitely Mac’s Paint Pot in “Painterly.” It provides a good base as it neutralizes your eyelids. Everyone has discolored eyelids that have veins, right? Maybe it’s just me, but regardless, this cult favorite is worth it.
I always use my Mac palette if I am going to use eyeshadow. I custom built this over time and I absolutely love it. I am going to do a post in the future with all of the colors, but I wear “Naked Lunch” on the lid and UD “Naked” in the crease, if I wear eyeshadow.
Honestly, I am not an eyeliner girl. I just don’t like wearing it because A) It’s hard to apply, B) It’s always uneven and C) I feel like I always either put too little or too much on. If I wear eyeliner, it’s either a shadow as an eyeliner or Physicians Formula liquid liner.
I recently got this new mascara from my VOXBOX and I LOVE IT! It is so lengthening and volumizing. It is probably my all-time favorite mascara. I am totally a Covergirl mascara girl. I don’t like Maybelline mascara or L’Oreal- just Covergirl.
Anastasia Beverly Hills will fulfill all of your brow needs. This line has everything from pencils to powders to pomades. I have both the retractable pencil and the pomade, but recently I have been using the pomade. I apply it with this brush and it’s my favorite.
I don’t wear lipstick on a normal basis, but if I do wear it, my go-to is Mac’s “Ruby Woo” or Mac’s Viva Glam V. It is a perfect “my lips but better shade.” Before putting on lipstick, I always put on a conditioning primer, too.
Similar to lipstick, I rarely wear lipgloss. If I wear it, it will be a natural color, like Revlon’s “Super Natural.”
