It’s here ladies! My makeup routine and the products I love to use daily has been requested by so many of you on instagram so I finally put a post together all about it.
My makeup routine can best be described as “casual with a little flare.” I like to do a more natural look while also bringing more attention to my eyes with eyeliner or shadow. I don’t put on a whole lot of makeup on since this is my everyday routine and I don’t like to spend a lot of time putting it on either before running off to work or errands etc. But most of the products are very affordable because I like to use things that work well and don’t break the bank at the same time haha. I hope you get try to a few of my favorite products and recommend some of your daily items as well!
All my products and daily routine can be found below.
Products I Use:
I always start by washing my face and rubbing in my primer cream(300 Blur + Redness control) before putting any makeup on. Next I use concealer and only apply if needed on areas where I have blemishes or scars. I use a beauty blender to apply. Then I use my FIT Me foundation all over my face for the base. *I use this type of foundation because its a matte base which my skin needs since its very oily. It helps control the oils on my skin for long lasting wear throughout the day. However, every skin type is different so make sure you give it a test run before applying all over your face*
I set the foundation with my FIT ME powder, adding MAC blush (color – mocha) on my cheeks and MAC bronzer around my face and under my cheek bones. I blend this all in with a blending brush. Also, when I feel like I want an extra little touch or shine I add some highlighter to the top of my cheek bones which looks great in photographs and in the sun.
Almost done! Next I finish up with my eyes by filling in my eyebrows with my MAC eyebrow pencil (color – taupe blonde). I don’t draw any dark lines because I like it to look as natural and simple as possible. Next I apply a light eyeshadow from my L’Oreal Nude palette and liquid eyeliner (I love this eyeliner so much! Its very precise.) on the crease of my eye. With eyeliner I always draw on a very small line because I don’t like it to look too dramatic. Lastly, I apply mascara (a couple coats) to my top and bottom lashes and a light MAC lipstick color.
This is my everyday routine and it usually takes me about 15 minutes. I don’t like to do anything too crazy or dramatic because I think less is more and also I hate having so much stuff on my face all day.
Let me know what routine you do and what I’m missing maybe?
Current favorite MAC Lipstick: M.A.C Limited Edition Nicki Minaj Lipstick and this similar one M.A.C Lipstick Nudes
Current favorite highlighters: M.A.C Hyper Real Glow Palette – Rose Gold
The mascara I use everyday: M.A.C Extended Play Lashes and Maybelline – Colossal Mascara
The brushes I love: Sonia Kashuk Essential Collection
I love this brand of brushes by Sonia Kashuk because the hairs on the brush don’t come out and end up on your face like a lot of cheap brushes do. This set is very affordable and good quality. I’ve been using them for a year now and it includes everything from a powder brush, foundation brush, blush brush, bronzer brush, and multiple different eyeshadow brushes.
I hope you all liked this post and that it was very helpful for you! As I said above I don’t use a lot of products so this was kind of short and sweet. But let me know if you’d like to know more or see more beauty posts like this, i.e. “what skin care products I use” or whatever! Also, in case you missed it my haircare products can be viewed here.
