HI guys and Happy Thursday!
I’ve recently been getting a lot of questions about my makeup routine and while I’m no makeup artist, these are all products I love and use almost daily. I do switch up my routine from time to time so this is what I’m doing currently.
Step 1 – I prep my skin. I use Tula moisturizer. I use this at night after I wash my face as well as in the morning after I shower. Its super hydrating and It feels really good on my skin. I usually put this on and will fix my hair after to give it some time to sink in my skin before I apply makeup. I also apply Dr Brandt No more baggage eye cream which helps with puffiness and makes you look instantly refreshed!
Step 2 – Tarte Shape Tape Concealer on any Blemish I have. I have a very light shade for highlighting under my eyes so I will use this on my blemishes prior to foundation so that the foundation will appear smooth and also, It helps so I don’t have to purchase two separate concealers.
Step 3 – I currently use Este Lauder Double wear foundation. Its full coverage and it stays all day. I was using Maybelline stay matte foundation (which I still use occasionally) but my skin was getting really oily in my T zone mid day and It wasn’t lasting as long as I’d like. Double wear stays all day/night long and doesn’t budge. I know everyone loves beauty blenders, but I use a brush for my foundation. I think it helps me spread it a little more easily.
Step 4 – I apply Tarte shape tape concealer under my eyes and anywhere else I want to highlight. This is where I use a beauty Blender. I blend out my concealer and usually dab the rest of my face to make sure everything looks smooth.
Step 5 – I apply translucent powder to set my face. I used Rimmel London Stay matte powder. Its $3 at target and I love it. I use a fluffy real techniques brush all over my face.
Step 6 – Time to contour/bronze! I use my Anastasia powder contour palette I will blend two of the lighter bronzer colors together on a brush and lightly contour/bronze my face. For every day I just use a bit of color. If I’m going somewhere special, I’ll add some of the darkest color into the hollow of my cheeks to create more dimension.
Step 7 – Blush- I love blush sometimes I just use blush and mascara if I’m running to the grocery store and I don’t have time to do much else. I have several I interchange but lately I’ve been reaching for my favorite Milani blush
Step 8 – Eyebrows! I use milani dip brow. Its a dupe for Anastasia dip brow. Its super easy to use. Then I use Maybelline clear mascara as a gel to hold them in place. HOWEVER, I recently purchased the maybelline eyebrow
Step 9 – Morphe Jaclyn Hill Pallete is what I use daily. I rarely stray. Its my favorite.
Step 10 – Eyeliner and Mascara! I only wear eyeliner occasionally lately. I have Stilla Black eyeliner which I love – so easy to use. I also use the elf liquid eyeliner that’s $2 but I use stilla more. My holy grail mascara is loreal voluminous carbon black. I often try others because I get a lot in my Ipsy bag and Its still my number 1. It cosmetics is a close second with their Superhero mascara.
Step 11 – Last step- Highlighter and lipstick. I use Becca Champagne Pop. My every day Lipstick depends on the day but my 3 favorites are Maybelline stay matte Lipstick, Millani Lipstick, or Nyx satin Lip butter.
and VOILA! That’s it.
