I love makeup. I love learning new tips and techniques. And I can get lost in You Tube makeup tutorials for hours. Just ask my husband. That being said, I tend to stay pretty loyal to what I like, especially for my daily routine. I keep it simple. On the weekends, I’m a little more adventurous.
First up is IT Cosmetics CC Cream. I mean have you seen Jamie Kern present this product? When she wipes of her makeup to show her rosacea? It’s incredible!
I don’t always use concealer but when I do it’s another IT product IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. At first, I had a tough time working with this product. But once you get a hang of it it’s great. I’ll dust a bit of the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder under my eyes to set the concealer.
My current bronzer and highlighter is Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Me and the rest of the world, right? For a pop of color I like MAC’s Mineralize Blush. It’s super easy to apply and gives nice pop of pink.
Since my brows are light and lackluster, I have to help them out. I use, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil. It’s simple to use and defines my brows perfectly.
I always start my eye makeup with Urban Decay’s Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It really helps to keep your shadow from creasing, especially during a long day. Speaking of shadow, I love the LORAC PRO Matte Palette. It definitely is my go to during the week. The pigment and colors are perfect. Try it! Under my brow, I use Linen. Bare is all over the lid. And I love the Latte color – so pretty!
If I’m going out, I’ll take the time to line my eyes with a gel eyeliner. But during the day, I usually skip this step. I will never, ever skip mascara though. This is the one item I would bring if stranded on a desert island with just one beauty product. I love L’oreal mascaras. I’ve tried so many mascaras from the most expensive to drugstore brands and I keep coming back to this one Voluminous Million Lashes.
Lastly, are the lips. I keep it pretty neutral with nude pink colors during the week. I love BareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick with BareMinerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lip Gloss on top. The combination makes me feel put together without being too much at school pickup.
