My Long Lasting Everyday Makeup Routine

March 28, 2016

My makeup routine hasn't really changed all that much, I'm still a very "no makeup makeup" kinda girl but my products did sort of change. I've been so busy lately that I really needed long lasting makeup because I did not have any time throughout the day to freshen up my makeup. I felt like all these products really helped with the longevity of it. I also want to mention that I've really been trying to write a lot more but I've been so out of it because of classes and work; but now I'm feeling inspired again and will definitely be posting more frequently because I'm finally learning the importance of time management as well.

For my eyes I've been using my usual cream eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown in the shade Shore. I've been using this for the longest time now and I think it's much better than the MAC paint pots. After I use that to prime my eyelids I'll use the Tartelette In Bloom palette, the shade 'Charmer' is what I usually use to set the cream eyeshadow, some days I will skip that step and go straight in with the other eyeshadows. On an everyday basis I'll use 'Smarty Pants' as a transition shade, 'Jetsetter' in my crease and 'Firecracker' on my lids. I love how natural it looks which is perfect for my everyday makeup look.

I've been obsessed with the Dior Diorshow Mascara, it's one of my absolute favorites and I don't think I'll ever stop using this one. I remember using this in high school, loving it and suddenly forgetting about it. I started using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow again and I'm so in love with it. Back then I used to go overboard with this, but now I learned to use a light hand when applying this because if I press my brush a little too hard it'll look really intense which isn't what I want.

I've been breaking out due to stress and I also think think it's because I've been switching between so many new products that my skin isn't used to all the change. The CoverFX Mattifying Primer has been helping my skin a lot, I find that it's the best primer that helps with my breakouts. The Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24HR Foundation is probably the only foundation I'll ever wear. Every time I switch to something new I always end up coming back to this. It's seriously so lightweight and lasts all day on my skin....I mean it, through the sweating (gross I know) and oil blotting, that says a lot. My newest purchase is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer, and the only reason why I bought this was because it contained the word 'weightless' in it. This is so pricy and I finally splurged when I realized how badly powder would cake up over my concealer. I wanted something that provided coverage but wasn't too heavy, when I used this I was so glad I made the purchase because I use this everyday now.

After the base of my face makeup is on I'll set all over my face with the Laura Mercier Transluscent Powder, it keeps my oily face matte which is why I love it. My go to bronzer recently has been the Hourglass Ambient Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light, it looks so natural on my skin and I love how it feels too. It's very easy to blend out and doesn't go patchy on my skin. It also gives me a bit of a glow which is why I don't always wear highlighter. This blush is from an old MAC collection and it's such a beautiful shade, it's called 'Seduced at Sea'. It adds some color to my cheeks which is what I need in the morning even after all that bronzer.
Please tell me that you purchased the Sephora Give Me Some Nude Lip Set because wow....just wow. I've been using ALL the shades in this set and they're all so beautiful. I've been loving the NUDESTIX Lip Pencil in Whisper, I basically combine it with any other lipstick but lately I've been liking the combination with the Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Namaste. To complete the entire look I'll set my entire face by spraying the Boscia White Charcoal Mattifying Setting Spray all over. Even though this doesn't make my face look completely matte, I'm glad it doesnt because sometimes the matte look can appear very fake/powdery on my skin which I don't particularly like.

(P.S: I'm so proud of how these pictures came out, I've been in a photography rut and this gave me the confidence to try harder)
