My Everyday Makeup Routine
The questions I get asked most frequently have to do with makeup, so I'm sharing my everyday makeup routine with you all! I mix things up a bit from time to time, but these are my most worn, go to products that I reach for the most.
No matter how amazing your foundation is, primer is an important step to me. Whether your skin is dry or oily, it preps your skin and gives it the perfect canvas to apply makeup to. I definitely notice a difference if I skip this step. This is a great primer because its a spray and its cruelty free, free of parabens, and hypoallergenic.
For under eye concealer, I love LimeLife's Perfect Concealer in shade 0. It is just the best at really brightening up that area without looking too white or pink. It's also waterproof, feels so lightweight, and doesn't crease on me like many other concealers do.
Waterproof bronzer. It's real you guys, and I don't think I'm ever going back! I apply my bronzer next before powder, because this bronzer is a different consistency than most. It's not a cream, but not really a powder either. I have found it applies best before any powders, so I use a dense angled kabuki brush to apply it. The reason I love this one so much is because the finish is so natural - not powdery, not shimmery, not flat. It stays on all day and lasts even if you stand under a waterfall (yes I've tried it)! I just can't say enough good things!
I also prime my eyelids before applying eyeshadow - this makes the color payoff better and the shadows last longer without creasing. I've been using this one from Nars for as long as I can remember and it works like a charm!
When it comes to eyeliner, I love to wing it! I'm obsessed with this LimeLife by Alcone eyeliner pen because it makes doing my eyeliner so quick and hassle free. It also make it easy to do a wing because of how flexible the tip is. It takes practice, but if you're going to practice do it with this! So much easier to work with than most liquid liners.
I use MAC gel liner on my bottom waterline. Its waterproof and lasts all day. Its also great to line your lids with too!
The L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise is my drugstore favorite! Since mascara is the beauty product I go through the fastest, I love having a great drugstore option. This stuff volumes and lengthens and makes a dramatic difference!
Highlight really does make all the difference in making your skin look amazing. I love the Laura Mercier Matte Radience in 01. Its perfect for day to day and can be built up for a more dramatic evening look as well. It doesn't look like a streak of highlighter on your cheekbones either - it just blends right into your skin and looks flawless. It will also last for years!
