Heyyy guys! Hope you all have had a FABULOUS thanksgiving and fall so far! I have been really wanting to share my everyday makeup routine (when I am actually motivated enough to do makeup LOL) because even tho I am no Jeffree Star, I still love to experiment with products and try out all the trendy Instagram makeup fads that I discover on my explore page. This look I am about to show you is SUPER minimal and really easy and amateur and it is really versatile too, for before school or for a girls night! 🙂 Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
STEP 1: Prime
I use the Too Faced Hangover Primer because it is really hydrating and smells really yummy. I have combination skin (and it is LITERALLY the death of me) so this primer aids both my dry and oily skin. I put this on after my skin care is all soaked in. I switch between this primer and the Marc Jacobs Primer.
Step 2: CC Cream
My HOLY GRAIL product is the It Cosmetics CC Cream. I have gone through 3 tubes of it because I am that obsessed. It is really buildable and natural, so it is perfect for school or something more formal. Typically, I blend it out with a damp beauty blender and it has such a natural finish. It really evens out your complexion and covers imperfections without looking too cakey.
Pro Tip: BLEND DOWN YOUR NECK. Nuff said.
STEP 3: Concealer
The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is new to me, but so far I love it. I got it because I am a sucker for all things that beauty gurus love, so I had to get it 😉 I only apply a dot or two under my eye and on the high points of my face because she is THICCCC let me tell you! Some more low-key concealers I have used and even repurchased in the past areNars Creamy Concealer and Glossier Stretch Concealer. I love the way it looks when I buff it in with a beauty blender.
STEP 4: Cream Contour/Highlight
Before powder, if I am feeling super extra, I will cream contour and/or highlight. I LOVE the Hoola Bronzing Stick. It’s really easy to blend and is the perfect contour shade for a natural everyday look. I blend it out with this brush.
STEP 5: Powder
I “bake” (like the youtubers say) with the Laura Mercier Transluscent Powder because it works magic with mattifying your face and keeping your concealer from creasing. I 100% got it because of the youtubers so shout out to them for teaching your girl how to steer clear from a shiny face 😉
STEP 6: Bronzing
Again, because I am an avid Kardashian supporter, I had to get myself a KKW contour palette. Sort of to my surprise, I am OBSESSED!! I have the light kit and it works really well with my coloring. I use both cool and warm tones as well as the highlighter on a day to day basis. It was honestly well worth the splurge, I am so in love with it at the moment!
Pro Tip: Morphe Brush Sets are a SO cute and inexpensive, perfect for beginners! I like the gold and rose gold sets because #aesthetic
Step 7: Blush
I am not the biggest blush person, but this tarte blush is a perfect beach for fall and looks good on literally everyone! I have also been using the Nars Orgasm Blush for YEARS, its a classic!
Pro Tip: Once highlighted, spray a face mist like All Nighter Spray or Mario Bedescu Spray (I know y’all probably have heard of this one) to lock in your makeup!
Step 8: Brows and Mascara
This is my favorite part. My eyebrows are naturally really dark, so I just stroke the Glossier Boy Brow to tame those brows. For mascara, after I curl my lashes, I loooove the Benefit Roller Lash because it really does lift your eyelashes and make them look really long and luscious.
Step 9: Lips!!
Pretty self explanatory, I use basically any chapstick or lip scrub (the Lush ones are bomb). I am not a big lipstick person so a little dab of gloss is perfect! 🙂
AAAAND that’s it!! This routine has been my GO TO and I love the way it looks! I am not a professional or anything, but it super simply makes you look put together and ready for the day! Thanks for stopping by my page! Tune in soon for more posts!
