Happy Friday! How was your week? As you know, I LOVE makeup and skincare. So I thought I would share my beauty routine and what’s in my makeup bag right now!
PREP: I start with a clean face and then use this moisturizer. I let it sink in for a few minutes before starting. When I have time, I like to prep my lips with this scrub. I recently bought this lip scrub, and I love it. So easy to put on and let it sit for a few minutes. It exfoliates your lips so they are nice and smooth.
FOUNDATION & CONCEALER: I recently found this over-the-counter foundation by Maybelline. It goes on smooth and has the perfect amount of coverage. Once my foundation is set, I use this concealer for under the eyes (helpful when trying to hide dark circles) and I also use on any blemishes. I’ve also noticed this one doesn’t crease adds a brightening finish.
I use the beautyblender for all of these products. I’ve been using it for years and it’s almost like magic. If you don’t have one, it’s a must in a makeup bag!
CONTOUR: Contour takes practice and is trial and error at first but once you get the hang of it, piece of cake. When I want full-coverage, I always use the amazing Anastasia contour pallet. I use the color, fair but they have a few colors based on your skin tone. It’s very blendable and creamy.
POWDER: I use this powder to set my face. This step is extremely important as it keeps everything in place for hours of coverage and allows the rest of your makeup to go on smooth. I recently bought 23 brushes from Morphe…I know, a little overboard but I’ve enjoyed experimenting. I’ve been using this round powder brush which is super soft and gives airbrushed finished look.
BRONZER & BLUSH: Depending on the season, I mix up the bronzer I use. Right now, I’m a little tanner so I’ve been using this bronzer. It’s budget friendly and gives a lasting color boost! I’ve been using this brush to apply my bronzer. I’ve been using it for years and love it! My favorite blush is from Tarte. It’s long lasting and good for a wide variety of skin tones.
EYES: I don’t usually put on eyeshadow everyday unless I have an event or want to change up my look but I always put on mascara. I have been trying a few over-the-counter mascaras lately, as well as using my go-to which is this one. It doesn’t clump and separates the lashes perfectly. I also always have this classic on hand.
FINISHING TOUCHES: Lips…I always use some sort of liner. Usually from Mac. This one is a good neutral I use often. Lipstick and gloss depends on my look for the day. A few of my favs is this Mac cremesheen lipstick and this gloss. I finish with this highlighter for the perfect glow. Finally, I set my face with this finishing spray. I’ve been using it for years and it gives a refreshed feeling on my face.
It usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes from start to finish! Hope you enjoyed! What’s your must have product in your makeup bag? Comment below! Have a great weekend beauties!
