My Daily Makeup Routine

Recently I’ve fallen into an uncreative rut of sticking to the same makeup routine. I like to think that it’s because I know what works for me and so I’m just sticking to it. Even if that’s not the case, these products are what I’ve been loving and using everyday lately.

I first start off with the Cover FX illuminating primer. My skin tends to be on the dryer side, so I found that using this primer gives a more glowing appearance underneath my foundation, rather than my usually dull skin. I like to next take my Estee Lauder double wear foundation and apply that using the liquid foundation brush from the professional makeup brush collection by Vanity Planet. I recently got these brushes and have been loving them. They feel super soft on my face and are great at blending all of my makeup. Plus the handles have a really cute wood grain pattern, which I love. After my foundation is well blended, I like to take the Nars Creamy Concealer and use that on any blemishes as well as the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Concealer for under eyes. This concealer does a great job of brightening my under eye area. It can tend to crease though after a while, so I like to go in with the Banana powder from the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit. This keeps my under eye concealer fresh all day and free from creasing. Using a yellow- based powder also helps to cancel out any of the blue-purple shadows under your eyes. I’ll then use the shade Fawn from the same palette to bronze up my face or contour a bit, depending on the day. To finish off the face, I use Becca’s Jaclyn Hill Collection Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush. I take the shade flowerchild and apply that to apple of cheeks. Next I take Champagne pop and apply it to the tops of my cheekbones as well as the tip of my nose. Now for the eyes, which are my favorite part. Lately, I’ve been using the Makeover Essentials Classic 10 palette in Sunlit Breeze. This palette has a great selection of neutral mattes and shimmers, which are the shades I tend to stick to. Depending on the day I might go in with a shimmery orange-brown on the lid and a darker matte in the crease, or if I want an all matte look I’ll go in with a light cream all over the lid and a light brown in the crease. Next I take my Essence waterproof eyeliner pen, which can be found for really cheap at the drugstore. Not only is it cheap, but it applies great and stays all day. To finish off the eyes I’ll put on a coat of the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, which is hands down my favorite mascara from the drugstore. Lastly I fill in my eyebrows with the Elf eyebrow kit and swipe on a coat of the Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow gel to make sure that they stay in place all day. That’s basically my daily makeup routine. Depending on the day I might change things up a bit or wear lipstick, but for my normal everyday this is it. I hope you enjoyed my post and as always feel free to comment!
