Today I decided to share my typical make up routine with y’all! On most days, I keep my makeup pretty simple since I prefer to look as natural as possible. There are days when I like to have a little more fun; and I mean I love lipstick just as much as the next girl, however, this is the stuff that I use on any plain ol’ day.
I typically start off with this primer. I have oily skin and so anything that helps me stay matte throughout the day I will automatically give a chance to! Next I use a damp Real Techniques Sponge to apply Loreal’s Infallible Foundation. I’m the shade “natural buff”. Once everything is all blended I use Physicians Formula Concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes. I finish off my face with powder and blush! I absolutely love Milani’s baked blushes! I have a few different shades for highlighting depending on the season of summer or fall. This shade is Rose D’Ore.
After finishing up the face, I head on up to my eyes! Of course I start with curling my eye lashes! I think this is such an important step that a lot of people tend to skip. I like to then get on with my eyeshadow. This is a palette that I tend to use on and off. Then I move on to lining my eyes. I like this gel liner from Maybelline. I have it in both brown and black. I like that they come with their own little adorable brushes too. For mascara, I change what I use alllll the time! Right now I am using Maybelline’s Colossal and I like it. It’s working out really well right now. Then I finish by filling in my brows, and applying some chapstick or this balm stain.
You guys I have to talk about Revlon’s Colorburst Balm Stain. This shade is Honey, and I’ve had Smitten before as well. I love this balm stain. It applies kind of like a lipstick. I like to call it a crayon because that’s what it looks like to me. However, off of my childish tangent, I absolutely love them. They last pretty much all day, and are easy to apply without a mirror. You have to try them out!
