Happy Sunday guys! How are you? I recently have been working on the layout and theme of the blog, which is why I have been gone for a couple weeks. I had to switch platforms and all of that fun stuff! But I’m back. I hope you guys like the new set up, I worked really hard on it and I think it looks so much better! Anyways, today I wanted to share with you my everyday makeup routine. Although, I use these products everyday, I just realized how badly I need to restock on my favorites asap. These are the products I’ve been using for a long time and work best for me! From the products to the brushes I use, I’m sharing it all. I hope you guys enjoy it!
Step 1: Foundation
I use Revlon Colorstay in the shade Buff. I apply it using a Beauty Blender or this double ended Lorac foundation brush. It is really good for combo skin. It keeps me matte all day without drying me out. It also lasts forever, I can sleep with it on (when I’m lazy, thats so bad I know!) and I wake up and it still looks good. It retails for around $10. I don’t like spending a ton of money on foundations because I use them up so quickly. This one is affordable and works great for everyday use.
Step 2: Concealer
I use Maybelline Fit Me concealer in the shade 15 Fair Clair. It retails for around $5. I use this under my eyes, on my chin, forehead, and bridge of my nose. I have fairly clear skin so whenever I need it I will also use this on blemishes. I find this is the most full coverage concealer from the drugstore. It doesn’t crease, its the perfect formula.
Step 3: Powder
I used to use this powder all the time. I stopped once I bought the Laura Mercier translucent loose powder, which I used to bake. But then I ran out of that and didn’t want to spend that kind of money again on a powder. #poorcollegegirlprobs Sooo, I’m back to the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in translucent. I use this all over my face with a fluffy brush, and then I press it under my eyes with my beauty blender as well. This gives me a flawless finish without looking cakey, and it retails for literally $3.
Step 4: Bronzer & Blush
For an all over color on my face I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer in the darker shade. It is around $30, but definitely worth it. It lasts forever and is the perfect ashy tone. Then for blush I use a mixture of the two shades in this Pacifica palette. I have a lot of blush shades but these have been my current favorites for the fall time. This compact is around $10.
Step 5: Highlighter
Highlighting is my favorite part of my makeup routine. My all time favorite highlighter is Becca Cosmetics Highlighter in Champagne Pop. It is very pricey, retailing at $38. It has lasted me forever, using it everyday, and still have not hit pan. The color is so beautiful on the skin, giving a healthy glow.
Step 6: Brows
Now, for brow product I’m not really picky. I’ve recently been using this duo brow powder by INSPR in the color dark brown. I received it in my Ipsy months bag. I like the powder because it makes them look defined, but still natural. This retails for $12.
Step 7: Eyes
Most days I just curl my lashes and throw on some mascara. I use Covergirl Clump Crusher in the waterproof version. I always buy waterproof because it keeps the curl so much better. Some days I will add a highlight shadow to the inner corner, or just apply a taupe shade all over.
The right picture are the brushes I use for my face.
