My Daily Makeup Routine

Daily Makeup

This is pretty much what I’ve been wearing lately. Sometimes something will change because I want to test a product, but these are what I’ve been reaching for the most. My brow powder from Billion Dollar Brows isn’t on Polyvore and I couldn’t get their clipper thing to work so sorry, brow powder, you don’t get to be in the picture. :|

Face: Tarte Smooth Operator Illuminating Serum all over, applied with fingers. Then ELF Complexion Perfection powder (from the ELF Studio line) applied all over with a fluffy brush. Mine’s a Sigma knockoff of the MAC 138. The brush sheds (ALL OF THEM DO GRRRR) but it’s the best fluffy brush I have for this purpose right now. After I’m done with the powder I use TheBalm Time Balm concealer on any spots that I’d like to.

Face/Color: Once my skin tone is all evened out and imperfections covered, I grab NARS Laguna bronzer and do an eensy bit of contouring, and also dust it over my eyelids to add a little warmth and color. I like to wear both NARS Dolce Vita and Sex Appeal blushes. Dolce Vita looks like a scary red in the picture but it’s more of a dusty rose, and I apply it on the bottom edge of my cheekbones, with Sex Appeal on the apples of my cheeks. 

Eyes: I go around my dark eye shadows with Benefit Eye Bright, which I love. I don’t have a whole lot of darkness issues so this pink brightener is pretty much enough. It’s great for the redness I get at the outer corners of my eyes, too. Usually I don’t need an actual concealer in that area but for the times I do, I use some more of TheBalm Time Balm. Then it’s time to curl my lashes (I use a Shu Uemura curler, which is fine but I don’t love it) and load up with L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes in carbon black.

Lips: I’ve been obsessing over Rimmel’s Stay Glossy lipgloss in Captivate Me lately. It’s sort of a berry color but it’s not very dark. It’s very flattering, and the Stay Glossy formula is SO nice. It’s moisturizing, only slightly sticky, and lasts a long time. I keep this gloss in my purse and wear it almost every day.
