Hey Ladies! And Gents, (I don’t discriminate here!)
It’s about that time I posted another Everyday Make Up Routine because realistically my last one went up last year! And a lot has changed since then. Don’t believe me then keep reading to see what I’m doing now!
It’s no secret that you should always start with a fresh and clean face! These days I swear by three lines; Burt’s Bee for my Facial Cleanser, Witch Hazel for my Toner and Formula 10.0.6 for my masks, scrubs and moisturizers. Every day I start with cleansing my face with the Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile cleanser, sometimes I use my Clarisonic brush and sometimes I don’t ( I know, I need some consistency) I then will use the Formula 10.0.6 Berry Scrub and yes I do use this just about every day (it’s not too harsh) from there I move onto toning with any generic Witch Hazel and moisturize with my Formula 10.0.6 Matte Moisturizer.
Now let’s get into the make up!
I always and I mean always start with the brows! I just feel like the brows frame the face and sometimes they can take me 6 minutes and sometimes they only take 2. I prefer the days when they only take 2 however I’m all about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in the color chocolate. I use a super small Elf Cosmetics Angled Brush and start at the bottom making one clean line, then I make the line on the top and fill in. I will use my spooley brush to blend and brush out the hairs and product and of course clean it up with my LA Girl Pro Concealer in the color Warm Beige and just before I’m done I use my NYX Brown Gel to set the brows!
Now I use to be a girl who was all about building a full coverage foundation ( I don’t know why because everyone has always said I have great skin) however lately all I’ve been wearing is my MAC Concealer. I wear 1 pump under each eye and on my chin, I will use my beauty blender to blend it under my eyes, on my nose, my upper lip and chin as well as between my brows and onto my forehead. Once the concealer is all blended I will use my Dermablend Concealer Stick to contour my nose and my cheeks and again blend that out with the beauty blender. For awhile I was setting my concealer(face) with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder however for the last few months I’ve been using my Airspun Setting Powder that I purchase at Walgreens. It’s cheap, cheerful and works great! To set my contour I always use the NYX Cosmetics Matte Bronzer in Deep Tan using a tapered fluffy brush! Nose, cheekbones, forehead and jawline – then I dust the remaining Airspun powder away with a large fluffy brush before using my MAC Cosmetics Gold Deposit highlight on my cheekbones, nose, chin, cupid’s bow and of course my temples. I don’t use a setting spray on my face anymore although I use to swear by one it just isn’t my priority. I finish my face with my lips and my combination which I got from my fav beauty youtuber Letitia Sophia and that combo is my Jordana Coco Loco Lip Liner and any nude gloss really but lately I’ve been obsessed with my Mac Cosmetics Lust Gloss.
