My “everyday” makeup routine has changed so much since I started my blog. You’ll see a couple of items that just aren’t going anywhere! But, this has been my routine for the last 2-3 months. I’m really enjoying not only how it looks but how it makes my skin feel both while I’m wearing it, and also after I take it off. It doesn’t build up on my skin like some products I’ve tried in the past that have made me feel like part of it never going to wash off! Let’s just jump right in!
While I’m not join to get into my skin care routine, I’m mentioning this product because 1. for me, I believe this also acts as a primer. My make up does not BUDGE! 2. It is so important to protect your skin from the sun, especially in the summer when you’re bound to spend more time outside. This feels so nice on the skin and does not make me feel greasy.
I use 2 concealers, but they are for different purposes. This product is the first makeup product I apply and it helps to conceal the dark circles under my eyes. I apply a generous amount under my eyes with the applicator, and buff it into the skin with a brush.
This foundation has been in my routine since before I started AnOklahomaGirl. I have tried several other BB/CC/Foundation’s and just have not loved something the way I love this It Cosmetics product. Though, I have changed the way that I apply it. I use 1 pump on the back of my hand, then I just take a few dots around my face and use a damp real techniques sponge to blend it into the skin. I’m really enjoying the finish it gives.
Now, for concealer #2; this is for highlighting under the eyes. This helps to make me look a little more bright eyed and bushy tailed than I may actually feel. I just make a triangle under my eye with a generous amount of product. (generally just one dip in the tube per eye) I will then blend it out with the pointed end of the real techniques beauty sponge.
I use this Kat Von D palette for multiple situations, but right now I just grab some of the top center shade to set my under eye concealer.
I will set the rest of my face with this Tarte translusent powder.
Now, back to the Shade ‘n Light Palette. I’m going to take (with a light hand) the bottom, center shade and do a very light contour. I’m still learning about all that business. But, the top left shade is the perfect shade to correct your mistakes!
Isn’t this the most beautiful palette! Ah! Ok, so first I will take the top center shade, Amoretto and pop that on my cheek bones in the same place you would put blush. Next, I’m going to take the top left shade, Rose Sprtiz and lightly apply on top of Amoretto. Once I’ve done this I will take the brush I used with the Tarte translucet powder and dust it all over my face just to make sure everything is blended well. I will then mix the two bottom shades, Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop together and dust them on the tops of my cheek bones and my cupids bow.
For my eyes, I’m just going to dust Mac – Soft Brown in the crease of my eyes. Keeping it super simple!
Brows are my least favorite part of make up. But, they have gotten so much easier since I started using the Anastasia Brow Definer. Plus, I add this Maybelline clear brow gel over top.
I love mascara, but sometimes it’s hard to find one that works for both my top lashes and bottom. So, I just use two different ones! This Roller Lash from Benefit is perfect for my top lashes, they makes my lashes so long and curly! The Loreal Butterfly in waterproof is the perfect lower lash mascara, the wand makes it so easy to get really close to the lash line.
Last but not least, LIPS! I have gone through and entire tube of this Stila liquid lipstick in Baci. I wear it all the time, and it never fails, I get SO many complements! It’s a staple in my collection!
This generally takes me about 20 minutes, but it has become my favorite go to… I can do it even half asleep in the morning before work. What are your current go to routines?
Until Next Time.
