I don’t go all out with my makeup everyday, who has the time for that really. I’m always getting asked what foundation I use, how I put it on, etc. My everyday makeup routine is fairly simple.

1. Moisturize

I cannot stress this enough! You do not, I repeat, do not want to put makeup on your face without some kind of moisturizer. I didn’t include my moisturizer in the picture because I’m always changing it. It’s better to use a moisterizer with SPF in it to protect your face, especially when summer hits. By moisterizing, you will achieve that flawless finish. It helps the makeup set better and also last longer!

2. Primer

I haven’t always used a primer. I use to think my moisterizer did the exact same thing as a primer would. My view on primers completely changed when I discovered Laura Mercier Primer. I got this in a Ipsy Bag and fell completely in love! I cannot imagine not wearing a primer now. This just helps your makeup last longer and really set your face for the makeup you’re about to put on it.

3. Liquid Foundation

I’ve always work liquid foundation. Some of my friends only wear powder and I’m always so shocked when they tell me. Applying a liquid foundation really helps cover up any imperfections or blemishes you are trying to hide. It smooths out the face. I included 3 in my picture but I obviously only wear one at a time lol! The three I’ve been loving are: Revlons ColorStay Whipped Foundation, Maybelline’s BB Cream, and L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder.

4. Concealer

I’m in love with Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I use the shade Light. I apply this right under my eyes and blend out with a beauty blender. It makes such a difference with your face. It brightens it up so much while lifting. I always set my under eye concealer with Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder. (I will be doing a review on this soon!)

5. Powder Foundation

I know usually people always contour,bronze or apply blush before setting all their makeup with a powder. For me, it helps me blend  out my contour or bronzer better. You can do either I just think this helps me! Here lately I’ve been using the Milani Even-Touch Powder in the shade Fresco. I apply this with a Morphe M107.

6. Bronzing or Contouring

I always do one or the other, not both usually. I’m in love with Milanis Baked Bronzer. It blends so well and the color is beautiful. I use The shade Glow. When contouring I use the Anastasia Contour Kit. I apply my bronzer with the brush that comes in the Milani packaging and my contour shades with an angled brush by Luxie, the 504.

7. Blush

I haven’t found a blush that I love more than E.L.Fs baked blush. It’s super cheap and great quality. I use the shade Passion Pink. I’ve had this for months and it doesn’t even look like I’ve made a dint in it. Definitely a must have. I apply this with a Morphe M106 to the apples of my cheek and blend out.

8.Eyes

I usually not do anything fancy on my everyday look. I use Maybelline’s Eye Studio Gel Liner in the shade black. It comes with its own applicator. This stuff will last you all day and night! I usually only apply it to my top line and not the bottom, unless I’m doing a smoky eye. I don’t have a specific mascara Im loving but I usually always wear Maybelline.

9. Setting It All

To make sure my makeup stays all day I use Urban Decays all nighter makeup setting spray. This stuff is amazing and lasts such a long time!

 

hope you enjoy!
