My Daily Makeup Routine

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Hello loves! Today I am here to show you how to achieve a cute "everyday look" that some of you have asked me about. I've been asked what makeup I use a lot, so I'm here to do a blog post that's a bit different from what I usually do!


Every day, I do the same routine before work and even going out on weekends. I like to keep my overall look light, but at least enough to cover my imperfections. I have very fair skin, so I don't like to "cake" on the makeup, if that makes sense!


What I do first is I apply my liquid foundation. I use Clinique foundation because I think it's critical to have a professional test foundation to your skin to see what color is perfect for you. I've tried drugstore brands, but they were always too dark, light, and awkward looking. I chose to use the acne solutions makeup because I have oily skin which is pretty common. I apply my foundation with a brush and then blend it again with a beauty blender.


Next comes bronzer. Like I mentioned before, I have fair skin. But it is summer, so I like to add bronzer for some extra shimmer. I like to highlight and contour my face. It makes my skin look more even, smooth and have a glow look. If you aren't familiar with highlighting and contouring, check out this post! This specific bronzer I use is from Sephora and it is the Too Faced brand. I also like to use Sephora brand bronzer in the winter. It is a little bit lighter and fair.

As for blush, I use CoverGirl. CoverGirl is my favorite drug store brand makeup line. I tend to go for the more peachy colors due to my fair skin tone. If I'm going out on the town, I will use a more pinkish-red color to really light up my cheeks. 


Now onto eyes! The eyeshadow I use is by Urban Decay and it is called Naked 3. Naked 3 is my favorite out of the Naked Palettes because it has more lighter pinks and browns which compliment my blue eyes nicely. I also use their Primer Potion as a concealer so my eyeshadow stays on better! 


The mascara I use on a daily basis is the CoverGirl mascara. I also use this mascara from Benefit called They're Real! and it is amazing as well. Mascara is by far my favorite makeup product. I was blessed with long eyelashes, and when I use my mascara my whole face looks less tired and really lights up. Another mascara product I use is called Better Than Sex (funny, right?) and it is the Too Faced brand like my bronzer. All great products that I definitely recommend!


I wouldn't say that I'm a big lipstick person, but these are some products I can't live without! The sugar petal lipstick is from Sephora and it acts as a healing agent for your lips. I also love the chubby sticks from Clinique. I have a few shades and I believe I got this one from my mom as a gift. Last but not least, my limited edition Cinderella lipstick by MAC. This lipstick is a shimmery tan color and it is perfect to wear when going out on the town. It isn't too heavy and it matches almost every look.

That sums up the makeup I use on a regular basis. If you have any questions for me, please let me know! Check below for products mentioned. Thanks for reading!
