My Current Makeup Routine

November 25, 2015

I've been trying to switch up routine lately but it's hard considering I love to stick with the same products. I did get a few new makeup products recently so I've been using those a lot more. My makeup usually looks the same most days because I don't have time to do it especially since I don't give myself too much time to get ready before class (I should probably wake up an extra hour earlier).

I always start my makeup off with a freshly moisturized face because it makes my skin feel smooth and hydrated, it also helps blend in my primer smoothly. I use the Smashbox Photofinish Blemish Control Primer and I don't think it makes a huge difference on my skin whenever I have a break out, but I like that it contains salicylic acid. While I let that dry a bit I'll apply the Bobbi Brown Cream Eyeshadow in Shore as a primer and base for my other eyeshadows.

Right after that I'll apply some foundation and on this day I used the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, it isn't my favorite but it lasts long enough. The Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette is becoming a favorite of mine because I've been using this every single day. I'll set the cream eyeshadow with the shade "Foxy", then I'll mix "Half Baked" and "Chopper" for my eyelids. For my crease I'll use the shade "Tease" and afterwards I'll put "Suspect" on the outer corner of my eyes. 

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer has become a favorite of mine because it covers up my dark spots perfectly and I also like using this under my eyes. I find that it's a little thick which is why I always apply a tiny amount, but it has great coverage. After concealing I'll immediately set my under eyes with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit using the shade "Banana" and sometimes I'll mix "Vanilla" and "Banana" to set the rest of my face. 

My eyebrows are next because I used to do them last which made me forget to fill them in so I always try to do them before I finish the rest of my face. My go to brow product has been the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, this has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I always try to find a replacement for it, but nothing has been better than this. I'll apply my mascara next using the Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara and the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.

I've been obsessed with the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer lately and I use this to give my face some dimension. After that I'll apply my blush using the MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul, this blush is perfect for an everyday look which is why I've been reaching for it a lot. The reason why I enjoy doing the rest of my face makeup last is because of the highlighter! The MAC Magic of the Night highlighter in Oh Darling has been a favorite of mine ever since I got it and let me tell you this....I'm obsessed! (wrote a post on it here)

For lipstick sometimes I'll just wear a lip balm but on most days I'll apply the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm. I tend to reach for liquid lipsticks everyday because they last much longer than a regular lipstick would.
