Hi! So I was looking back through old posts and I realized that since I did my last everyday makeup routine last summer, my entire routine has changed. So, I figured it was time for an updated one.
I’ts taken me a really really long time, but I think I finally found my skinmakeup dream team. All the products above are the best I’ve every used. I start with the It Cosmetics CC cream, blended in with my beauty blender. This CC cream is the best base I’ve tried. It is my exact color, blends in, feels like skin, improves my skin tone, and it doesn’t break me out at all. Beauty blenders are also magical little things, I find its the best way by far to apply face makeup. I then apply the tarte maracuja creasless concealer to blemishes or red spots, this concealer will cover anything! It’s very creamy and will stay all day, plus it doesn’t break me out. I apply this with the real techniques detailer brush and my fingers, I just find that this to be the best way. I use Maybeline dream touch lumi under my eyes and on my eyelids. I don’t have dark circles, it just makes my face look brighter. I set everything with the Rimmel Stay Matte shine control pressed powder. This is my favorite powder as a little goes a long way, and it takes away shine without getting cakey.
My favorite part, eyebrows! I naturally have very unruly eyebrows, so being able to do them and keep them under control is essential to me. I fill them in any sparse areas with benefit’s instant brow pencil and set it with maybeline clear mascara. I like this pencil, although it can be a little to creamy and can look unnatural if I’m not careful. However, this “brow gel” is the best I’ve tried. It keeps my eyebrows in place all day.
For eyes, I just blend in some brightening concealer on my lids (as aforementioned) and line them with the stila stay all day liquid liner in intense black. This is by far my favorite means of lining my eyes as it really does stay all day and creates a super clean line that is thick in some places and thin in others. I curl my lashes using maybeline eyelash curlers, and use either the covergirl lashblast volume, or l’oreal telescopic mascara. I love both because unlike my previous favorite mascara (Maybeline the falsies) neither of them flake off through the day. The L’oreal one is very lengthening and natural, and the Covergirl one is very very volumizing. I just choose whichever I feel like. Finally lips! I use the Nivea kiss of milk and honey as chapstick because it’s my favorite! It really moisterizes and smells amazing. Plus, unlike some nivea chapstick it’s not super heavy. I also use rose salve as a balm/gloss when my lips are extra dry. My go to lipstick is Mac’s syrup. It is the PERFECT your-lips-but-better color for me and I wear it all the time. Revlon Lip Buter in rasberry pie is my favorite when I want a little more color.
congrats is you made it all the way down
