Hello! How was everyone’s holiday weekend? I hope that it was amazing! Mine was filled with smiles, family and food. Today I am bringing to you my everyday makeup routine! I know that some of you miss my makeup posts (Aunt Cindy and Maddison). This one is for you!
I would first like to say, excuse my crusty ass nose and my lazy eye. I was really sick for like a week and my nose was raw. My lazy eye is just there for everyone to enjoy. Now, on to the good stuff.
First things first, I always wash my hands and then sanitize them. I try to keep my breakout to a minimum. Dirty hands touching the face is a big cause of breakouts.
To moisturize my face I use coconut oil. I use coconut oil for absolutely everything. I love it. This is also the time that I like to apply chapstick. It preps my lips and gets them ready for lipstick.
I know that this sounds weird, but to prime my face I use Nivea Men’s Post Shave Balm. It contains glycerin, and glycerin helps makeup stay on your face.
For foundation I like to use Loriel True Match. This is one of the best foundations that I have ever tried. The color selection is ridiculous! Once that is applied, I go in with concealer. When I apply concealer, I apply it in an upside down triangle under my eyes. This covers more areas on the face and also highlights.
To set the under eye area, I use the Laura Mercier translucent powder. To set the rest of my face I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
Once all of that is done, I apply my blush, the one that I have been using is Milani baked blush in 02 Rose D’Oro. To highlight I have been using Mac’s beaming blush.
Brows have been the same for a while now. I am using Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown. To set them I apply Brow This Way by Rimmel.
I love me some winged liner. This is a gel liner from Elf that I purchased a long time ago. I use this bad boy everyday. Mascara is Maybelline Lash Essentials Mascara. By far the best mascara I have ever used. To spice up my look a little, I apply a highlighted eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes. This adds a little extra something and makes it look like you spent a lot of time on your eyes.
Usually for lips I use something simple, like a nude lipstick or a gloss, but today I am wearing Spice by Kylie Cosmetics. I took Blog pictures and you will see them very soon!
To make sure that my makeup stays in place all day, I like to spray my face with some setting spray, this one is from Urban Decay.
My makeup usually takes my about 15 minutes to accomplish. I hope that you all enejoyed this post! Remember to stay awesome and I will talk to you all in the next one!
I love you!
