Hi, friends! How is your week going? The little guy has been battling a cold and cough and my husband returned home from a business trip yesterday with the same cold! It’s just that time of year but we are back to our normal routine today! I posted a few favorite makeup products here but have never actually shared my full makeup routine. Whenever I decide to show my face on Instagram stories, I usually get a question about my makeup so here we are.
I mentioned in my last post how I am trying out this new magic cream by Charlotte Tillbury. My face feels and looks more hydrated which I think is contributing to a better foundation application. I have been applying it at night before bed and in the morning right after washing my face before I apply makeup.
Step 1: Apply this Too Faced Hangover Primer. The smell is amazing and reminds me of being at the beach.
Step 2: Apply this L’Oreal Infallible foundation. I’ve been using it for almost 2 years now and really like the coverage.
Step 3: Apply this Trish McEvoy Eye Base Primer to my eyelids. While my whole face tends to be quite dry, my eye area is mostly oily. Using this primer helps eyeshadow and eyeliner stay put if I use them. Most days I don’t even use eyeshadow because I really like the natural color the eye base primer gives my eyelids.
Step 4: Apply shape tape by Tarte concealer. I bring my concealer down all the way to the tops of my cheekbones and out to the side of my eyes, almost to my hairline. This really gives the light and brightness I like that gives the illusion of contouring.
Step 5: Once my concealer has started drying and settling in nicely, I set it with this Laura Mercier secret brightening powder. I have had wrinkles under my eyes for the longest time which causes my concealer to crease. Applying this powder sets my concealer so I don’t have worry about it creasing.
Step 6 & 7: Mascara is next! I first start with this primer, let it dry for about 10 seconds and then apply mascara. I picked up the mascara primer a few months ago and really like it! The mascara is my favorite that I have used for years!
Step 10: Apply lip balm and I’m ready to go!
