Hey you guys! For today's blog post I thought I would share how I do my current beauty and makeup routine and what products I'm absolutely loving right now. I haven't really talked much about makeup on here but I am obsessed with all things makeup. I change my makeup routine all the time just because I like to try out new products and my tan changes so I have to get lighter/darker foundations all the time. I thought you guys might be interested in what I'm currently using at this time in the summer.
I always start off with moisturizer and I use THIS Clinique moisturizer before I put on any kind of makeup.
After I let the moisturizer sit on my face, I have been using THIS NYX green primer. If you want to know why I bought it in the green instead of the clear it's because green helps cancel out the redness on your face. For some reason I always have rosy cheeks and nose so I like to correct that and make my base as smooth and even as possible.
So I have been switching off between 3 different foundations this summer.
I absolutely love THIS Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation. It is THE most full coverage, long lasting, matte foundation I have ever used. No foundation compares to this one honestly. However, I don't need a full coverage 90% of the time so I only use this when it's a special occasion/date night/going out, etc.
When I'm not feeling like caking my face I have been loving THIS wet n wild foundation. You guys this foundation is only $5!!!!!! And IT. IS. SO. GOOD. It really does last me all day and has pretty medium coverage. My only complaint is that it creases in my smile lines, but hey at least it proves I'm smiling so much right?
The other foundation I like to use is THIS BB cream for when I really just want to walk out the door to run errands but still look semi presentable.
After my foundation I use THIS concealer under my eyes to cover the dark circles and then to highlight my nose, and cupids bow.
To set my face I either use the NYX HD finishing powder which I've been really loving lately. It takes such little product to cover the face (which I have to set my whole face because I have oily skin) So this is great for me because It's lasted me over 2 months now. If I'm not in the mood for a translucent powder and want more of a color pay off I use THIS powder.
I have been using my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit for over a year now and I still have not made a dent in either of the contour colors and I use this every single day. But clearly you can see this has been used A LOT lol!! No matter how fare or tan I am, I can always use this to bronze my face. I use the banana shade under my eyes to brighten that area.
If I'm in the mood to contour my face I use THIS hoola bronzer and It is AMAZING. I barely use any product and the pigment is seriously so good!
For blush I always use my Jaclyn Hill Blush and Highlight palette and It is my #1 favorite product of all time EVER. First of all, Jaclyn Hill is my absolute Idol and I'm seriously obsessed with her, but this product is incredible. All 3 blushes are beautiful and the highlight..... no words...
My favorite eyeshadow palette of the moment is the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette OR the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I switch off every day between the two.
For eyeliner I seriously love this Elf Ink eyeliner. It's so good and so affordable!
Lastly for mascara I am OBSESSED with this new clinique mascara I recently tried out. It's one of the best mascaras I've ever tried out!
I finish off with my brows and use THIS NYX brow pencil.
And lastly I have been loving this liquid lip from NYX. The color is such a perfect pinky nude and I can't stop wearing it!
That's my entire beauty/makeup routine. Thanks so much for reading and let me know If you've tried any of these products or which ones you're currently obsessing over right now. xoxo
