My Go-To (Easy) Makeup Routine

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

One thing that I have no shame what so ever in admitting is that I am not the best at makeup. Can I apply it to my face and make it look decent? Yes. Do I spend all my money on all sorts of products and can contour my face? Haha no! My requirements for my makeup routine in the morning is that it has to be simple and easy. Honestly, I only started shopping at Sephora a few months ago and trying products that are different from the ones I have been using when I first started wearing makeup. So if you're looking for a more natural makeup look or if you're like me and need want something simple, this routine is probably perfect for you!

1. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration- The step of this routine that I never skip even if I'm not wearing makeup that day! I switched from ordinary moisturizer from Target earlier this year and I would definitely say this is worth it, even if it's a few dollars more!

2. Anastasia Brow Wiz- After hearing a lot of buzz about this product, I decided to try it out! I typically brush out my brows and sometimes I'll fill a few spots if needed

3. Sonia Kashuk Take Cover Concealing Stick- Next, I apply this concealer to any blemishes or just under my eyes (especially if I didn't get a great night's sleep). I really like that you can apply it directly onto your skin plus the price is great. I usually just dot where I need to apply it and then rub it all in with my Beauty Blender.

4. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation- Then, I pump a good portion of this foundation and apply it using my Beauty Blender. This foundation looks natural but also makes your skin look perfect at the same time, which I really like!

5. Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation- I bought this just last week because I needed a new foundation and I decided to go with the Too Faced brand because I loved the liquid foundation so much. So far it's been great!

6. Bare Minerals Perfecting Veil- I have a sample of this and it's perfect for finishing things up on days where I want to wear a bit more makeup! I apply it using the large Lilly Pulitzer makeup brush seen in the graphic!

7. Clinique Eyeliner in Intense Clove- I'm not too big on a ton of eyeliner and definitely not everyday but this is a great eyeliner because it looks a lot more natural on me since it's not black so it's a bit more subtle!

8. Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara- Honestly, I only use mascara that I get as a part of gifts with purchase at Clinique. But this mascara does the job and I typically do a coat before and after applying eye shadow

9. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette- This is the only makeup palette I use- it's that good! I typically blend a few of the shades for my everyday go-to look! I use the two smaller Lilly brushes for my eye makeup.

10. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rosé- The most insanely priced lip balm I have used but it's amazing! It smells so good, leaves your lips so soft, and adds a bit of color too!

What are some of your makeup favorites? Do we use any of the same products? Let me know in the comments!
