My makeup routine changes pretty regularly but here lately i’ve been stuck on the same products! I get asked a ton about some of the products I use, so I wanted to make it easy and share a blog post! I’ll put them down below in the order I apply them and a brief description of why I love them! Each product will be linked via affiliate links which helps me make a small commission if you decide to purchase!
1- Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream– This is my holy grail moisturizer. It gives my skin a beautiful glow from within and looks beautiful under my makeup which is why it is always step one! I take a tiny amount and press it all over my face and then go in with my next products!
2- Farsali Liquid Glass Primer- I’ve been using this for about a month now and it’s been a huge hit with my skin. It always gives me a subtle glow and smooths out any texture that I might have at that time. It also makes my powder foundation apply so much easier and smoother!
4- Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand– YOU GUYS! This is what every exhausted sleep deprived mother needs in their life. It gives your under eyes such a beautiful brightening effect and truly makes you look much more alive. It does not give any coverage so if you are looking for coverage but also want something to brighten you up, I would apply your concealer and then put this right over it. That’s actually what is was made for anyways! I use the shade A Light-Opal Glow.
5- KKW Beauty Brightening Powder in shade Vanilla– I use this on my under eye to set that tarte glow wand and it looks beautiful! Gives my eyes a gorgeous brightening effect and also sets my liquid products beautifully!
6- KVD Beauty Lock-It Powder Foundation– I found this on a whim at TJMaxx one day and I wish I had bought every last one I could find. This is the most long wearing, matte but not too matte powder foundation that works on combo-dry skin. It doesn’t stick to dry patches, last even during the hottest of hot days here in the south and looks beautiful all day!
7-Marc Jacobs Omega Bronzer in Tan-Tastic– My holy grail bronzer. It’s just so dang good. Smells like a tropical oasis and is such a gorgeous natural/matte finish. Blends out beautifully on the skin, would be best for light to medium skin tones! I wish they had a deeper shade but they don’t.
8-Bare Minerals Bounce & Blur blush shade Mauve Sunrise- This blush, whew. Where has it been my whole life. It’s like the perfect cream to powder product that blends beautifully out on the skin. It’s got a gorgeous finish, super pigmented and a little goes a long way. Word on the street is you can find these in TJMaxx and Marshals, I haven’t been so lucky yet. But if you do find them, get them! Don’t even second think it!
9- Benefit Cookie Highlighter– It’s a gift straight from the beauty gods. Benefit made this in the most beautiful champagne shade that just melts into the skin to give you such a gorgeous glow. I apply this on the tops of my cheek bones, over my brow bone and just at the top of my lip.
10- NARS Skin Deep eyeshadow palette- I’m a neutral gal, not sure if that comes as a surprise to you all or not but it’s true. I love a good neutral palette. I bought this one over a year ago and have used it almost every single time I do my makeup. It has the most PERFECT mattes and metallics to create an all in one eye look without flipping to other palettes. It also travels super well without breaking or cracking! **Sorry guys, this was an LE palette and is no longer being sold 🙁 **
11-Benefit 24Hr Brow Setter clear brow gel– Since getting my eyebrows micro-bladed, i’m sure fortunate that my brow routine is no longer an actual routine and more like 5 seconds. This brow gel is amazing. Fluffs my eyebrows out and keeps the hairs in place all day without moving!
12- Fenty Full Frontal Mascara– WHOAAA did Rihanna do this one right. This mascara is amazing. It has such a unique brush that volumizes and lifts the lashes to give you tons of length and volume. Doesn’t transfer to my lids and doesn’t bleed or flake throughout the day! Absolutely my fav!
12- Tarte Stay Spray setting spray- This is incredible. I got it in a random IPSY box a few months ago and started using it immediately. I will say the smell is awful, but my makeup does not budge one bit. The mist is great and doesn’t collect on the skin in any one area and dries pretty quick!
14- Becca Ultimate Lipstick in shade Sugar with Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in pillow talk– The PERFECT nude lip combo and I can’t even make that up. It’s incredible. It’s a satin finish lipstick so it’s not one to dry out your lips or feel super drying, the color is gorgeous and it stays on all day! Paired with the pillow talk lip liner is just another level of amazing!
