My Recent Everyday Makeup Routine

My Recent Everyday Makeup Routine

every day makeup routine second

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.

To start, I use my Glamglow Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment, then moisturize my lips with Glamglow Wet Lip Balm Treatment.

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.

Do you have an everyday makeup routine? What products do your reach for the most?

    Some great products here! I LOVE luxury makeup brands because let’s face it they do make all the difference. My everyday makeup routine, a little matte foundation if needed usually NARS or Charlotte Tilbury, Burberry face contour, a good mascara- Benefit Roller Lash at the moment, face cream of course at the moment I’m using one by By Terry. Becca’s Champagne pop is a great one for a highlight 🙂

    For powder, blush – again By Terry.

      Ah, break outs are the worst. My husband gets abscesses and it messes with his confidence. 🙁

    I love the colour palette you’ve got going on here! My everyday makeup is basically foundation, concealer, brows, something neutral and shimmery on the eyelids, mascara, blusher and a nude/pink lipstick and that’s it! x

      I’ve had to reduce majorly recently, but this was a quick fave of mine for a while.

    A lot of people like MAC’s Ochre! I will have to try it Angie. I have Stila’s Patina (can you believe I haven’t used it yet). I also need to experiment more with Laura Mercier’s translucent powder. Great products.

      I like ochre, but I want to try painterly.

      The poured version is amazing!!!

    Wow, my daily routine is much simpler, hehe. I don’t do eye makeup on the daily as I feel it takes up too much of my time. I like to do my makeup in the office so I’m not rushing.

      I don’t have much time to do it in the office since I start at 8am, but it makes me feel more awake to do it beforehand.

    Oh gosh, recently I haven’t been bothered with putting full face makeup! LOL! Just a touch of concealer under the eye, eyeliner, mascara, eyebrows and lips, that’s it! I’ve been so lazy! Haha!

    I have an everyday routine, otherwise I wouldnt be able to function in the mornings and I have to look presentable for work.
    Easy and quick is what I opt for, I filmed it for You Tube recently and to be honest not much has changed since then.
