My Daily Makeup Routine

I love makeup. However, at one point my makeup caused a horrible allergic reaction. After that, I realized I needed to take better care of my skin. Now, I use better and safer makeup on my skin. Sometimes it’s a little pricey, but it’s worth it to know that my face isn’t about to blow up. Also, it helps that I don’t usually wear a ton of makeup (and sometimes I don’t wear it at all) so most of my makeup lasts forever, like years, probably way after it’s supposed to expire.

So anyway, let’s get started!

Before I get into my makeup routine, I wash and moisturize my face. Then, I usually start with foundation. Honestly, I’m between foundations at the time. I’ve been using samples from Sephora, but before I was using samples, I used Beauty Counter’s Tinted Moisturizer. I like it, but I don’t love it which is why I’ve been testing out samples. My favorite sample I used was Kevyn Aucoin’s Etherealist Foundation, and I’m contemplating buying it to use on my wedding day.

After my foundation, I put on my concealer. I love my NARS concealer, but lately I’ve been testing out Smashbox’s Photo Op Under Eye Brightener. Β The Eye Brightener is also wedding makeup (people I’m doing my own makeup. I’m so nervous because I want it to turn out and I want it to last) so I’m trying to get used to it before the big day.


Next, I go for my contour. Sometimes, I use cream contour. I’ve been using this Anastasia Kit for awhile now, and it’s good, people. I typically use my fingers to apply it and then blend it in using my beauty blender.


When I don’t use my cream contour, I just use my bronzer and highlighter. The first stuff I used was a gift. I’m not sure what it was or where it came from, but it recently ran out and I bought the BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Pallete. I love it because it has a variety of colors and a blush.


If I don’t use the palette for highlight, I use my ColourPop Highlight (it’s a great price and fabulous). Usually for work, I don’t wear any eye shadow. I simply throw on some mascara and eyeliner. From my pile of samples, I found that I loved how easily Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner goes on. I also fell in love with Urban Decay’s Perversion Mascara. It’s a little expensive compared to what I usually spend on mascara, but I bought a full size version when it was on super sale.


Anyway, that’s my daily makeup when I wear it. What’s your go to? Any suggestions? Let me know!
