I’m not a big fan of wearing makeup.  I tend to want to wash it all off after a few hours.  Hence I keep my makeup routine pretty basic.  Below are the products I’m using currently.  Anything with an asterick are steps I add for a more “done up” look.

1 – Moisturize!  I use Aveeno Daily Moisturizer

2 – Foundation.  If I want to go lighter I use BB Cream, Garnier Skin Renew

For more coverage I use Revlon Photoready.  For both of these I use a minimal amount, usually just covering my nose and under my eyes.


3 – Concealer.  Mary Kay


4 – Powder.  CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder.  In my opinion pressed powders get a bad rap.  As long as you use it lightly it looks good.


5* – Blush.  e.l.f. Bake Blush in Peachy Cheeky

6* – Bronzer.  e.l.f. Baked Bronzer in St. Lucia.  I put this around my hairline and jaw line


7* – Eyeshadow.  e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California


And Rimmel Quad Eye Shadow in Smokey Brun


8* – Eyeliner.  Rimmel Soft Kohl in Pure White for my bottom waterline

10 – Mascara.  CoverGirl Clump Crusher

So if I’m so unlucky as to have to wear makeup during the day, these are the basics I typically go to.  Thanks for reading!
