Getting a little up close and personal today! I had a question a few weeks ago about my makeup routine and what I use daily. After using these products for years and have consistently rebought every single one of these products, I thought that would make me equipped to go into detail how I use them and why I love them. This routine is one that I use daily and takes me about 10 minutes – applying mascara is the longest part of this routine because I love a lot of mascara! I listed the products in order that I apply them below and included the shades as well.
Supergoop Glowscreen | I always start my makeup routine with additional sunscreen. I love the way this glo screen adds a dewy look to my face and hydrates it before adding foundation.
It Cosmetics CC Cream | I’ve used this foundation for years! It meets somewhere in between too thick and too runny. I use the smallest amount on my brush to apply and get a full coverage every time. It does have SPF in it so if you wanted to leave the glo screen out, you are set for sunscreen. I use the color fair light.
Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials | I can’t go without applying this eye base to my makeup routine. It has a natural look that I prefer over wearing eye shadow. If you find your eye shadow does run, try applying this before to give it longer wear. I wear the shade sand.
Hourglass concealer | I have tried so many different concealers over the last few years. There was one that I used years and years ago that was discontinued and felt like I hadn’t found anything like it until I started using this hourglass concealer. I use shade cotton as my overall color and will use birch to brighten up the area.
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder | This is another product I cannot live without. I recently did run out and used something else that was in my makeup drawer and did not get the same effect that this gives. My concealer tends to crease under my eye and this sets it in place all day.
Eyebrow pencil | This is the lightest shade I have come across for brows. I love the natural look and think this color does the trick to fill in sparse areas plus bring my brows to life.
Covergirl primer | Covergirl mascara | Another product I have tried multiple brands of is mascara! One time cleaning out my makeup drawer, I counted over 10 tubes of mascara! If I were stuck on a beach and could only bring a few things with me, mascara would be one of them. 3 coats of mascara to every application! I love that this one is so affordable and clean!
Hoola bronzer | Apply bronzer as one of the last steps. It gives so much life to your face! This one is matte too so no need to worry about unwanted glitter.
Bare Minerals blush | Top with blush and you are ready to go! Pink cheeks are so pretty and suits everyone. I use the color pink me up.
I did recently pick up this cream blush by Ilia to try and have really been liking it. It’s more subtle than the powder Bare Minerals blush but the color is really pretty and I use it as a lip tint as well.
