For well over the last 6 months, I had been lucky to get in one day where I had enough time to wear makeup. It left me feeling distraught over the fact my makeup was pretty much going to waste. Thankfully, over the last month, I have had a bit of free time to actually establish an everyday makeup routine. However, with the packing of the house, and being overly busy in the morning, my makeup looks have been quite basic. With the being said, the look is natural, pleasing, and quick to complete from the get go.
After cleansing my face and applying my facial routine, I always start with plucking my brows of strays. Once they are clear, I use my ColourPop Banging Brunette Brow Liner to shape my brow, while simultaneously creating natural brush strokes. After, I use my Essence Make Me Brow to set my hair in place and lock it all day. Then it is followed by my MAC Soft Ochre to crave and clean the brow area, while using it to prime my eye lids. Finally, it is set with my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.
Once I brush the loose powder off of my lids, I use my Lorac Pro To Go. I start by creating a soft crease line with Cafe, darken the outer V with Mink, smoke out the lash line with Black, and apply Pearl to the lid and inner corners. To finish the eye, I create a small wing with Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper to just deepen the lash line. Later, I will smoke out the lower lash line with Mink and Cafe with Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara (not pictured. oops!).
Continuing with my everyday makeup routine, I use my Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation in y365. Before blending, I apply my Becca Undereye Brightening Concealer, then apply my Collection Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer directly over top, blending into my foundation. As my foundation is a cream, I set it with my Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder as well we simultaneously baking my under eye.
Once I have brushed off the bake, I use my Lorac Pro To Go Bronzer to lightly carve out the cheeks. As a blush, I apply the my Nars Goule. To create a highlight, I often like to combine my Becca Poured Creme Champagne Pop, used as a base, with my Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals.
To complete my everyday makeup routine, I first spritz my skin with MAC Fix + before continuing on with my lips.
I have been switching between two particular lipsticks. If my lips are feeling hydrated, I will wear my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina. If, however, they are feeling dry, I will reach for my Kylie Lip Gloss in Candy K even with the lip balm treatment.
