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
And Rimmel Eye Definer in 211 Sable for my top lashline
9 – Curl My Eyelashes
10 – Mascara. CoverGirl Clump Crusher
11 – Lip Gloss. Rimmel Stay Glossy
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!
