Simple everyday makeup look!

Hi y’all today I want to share the makeup products that I use on a daily basis for a simple look. I prefer to spend my time in the morning sleeping (I mean who doesn’t) so I keep my routine minimal and easy. It takes me about 20 minutes to get ready for the day and walk out the door and on my way to work!

My skin is more on the oily side, so I try to find something that is long-lasting but also matte. I think I’ve finally found some products that work well with my skin and give a stunning appearance. There are two foundations that I have been using for a couple of months now.

The Anastasia Stick FoundationΒ (warm natural) is on the medium coverage side that can be layered up to be a fuller look. I choose this when I know that I’m going to have a long day because I know that I can trust it to truly stay in place! I use an elf brush to blend it into my skin.

The Bareminerals Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation (bare satin 06) is a light natural coverage. I like this on days when I’m not looking for a full coverage look. Although I do have oily skin,Β I have been more on the combination side lately with some dry patches. Since this foundation is a serum it glides seemingly on the skin. I use the Bareminerals brush that is made specifically paired to work with the foundation.

I’ve been using theΒ Benefit Porefessional, as my daily face primer for a couple of months now. It blurs all of my imperfections and ensures that the foundation will last all day. I pair it with any foundation and it’s my favorite primer.

Okay so I’m a college student with two part time jobs. So that means no sleep. 😦 Β I have terrible dark circles and I find that theΒ NYX Dark Circle Concealer (light) truly helps cover the dark veins under the eyes. I apply this first and then the NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand (beige) to highlight. I only use the wand on certain areas that I want to look more brighter. I went without this product for a couple of weeks and realized that I needed it back in my life! The best part of these two concealers is that they’re affordable.

For blemishes and dark spots I like to use the Bareminerals correcting concealer (medium).

To apply these products I use the Real Technique brushes. (last three pictured below)

You can’t forget to set your face with a powder. Lately I’ve been trying out the Bareminerals Bareskin Perfecting Veil (medium).Β The lightweight formula sets your foundation without giving an overdone powder look. Another powder that I absolutely love is the Maybelline Fit me Matte+Poreless (220). I keep this inside my wrislet for on the go.

I swicth my brushes when I use powder. My favorite ones are the Real Techniques buffing brush and the Bareminerals soft focus face brush.

So now that we have our face done we need to add some color to our cheeks! For an everyday look I choose the NYX blush in Coraline. It’s a matte coral blush that adds the perfect warmth and glow. Since I don’t use a highlighter on a daily basis I like to apply another blush on top. The Maybelline Hi-Lighting Blush(coral) is wonderful because it adds a subtle sparkle.

I use a Wet n Wild blush brush to apply these products.

Honestly my favorite part of my routine has to be the eyebrows! I swear ever since I discovered that filling in your eyebrows was a thing it changed my life! I have very thin hairs that give the appearance of less hair. So I need some help in the brow department.

To get the shape that I want, I use the Milani Easybrow Automatic Pencil(02 dark brown). It’s retractable and has a wand attached to the other side. Which is convenient because you don’t have to reach for another product to blend the color.

To fill in a little more the Milani Brow Fix Kit(03 dark)Β does wonders because it includes everything that you need! Tweezers, highlighter, two shades, and a small angled brush! I’ve been using this for years now. I also like to use a Real Techniques angled brush to work with the powder.

To top everything off and make sure that our brows are in place and wont smudge, I add the NYX brow mascara(brunette).

I keep my eyes simple without any shadow and just wear mascara! I often switch my mascarasΒ out because I like to try new things out. Down below are the two that I have been testing out. The Bareminerals Lash Domination Volumizing mascara and the Benefit Roller Lash.

You can never go wrong with a pinky nude lip! Which is what I gravitate for most mornings. The Maybelline Matte Liquid Lip color ( 5 nude thrill) is the perfect my lips but better color. I also like to use the Buxom Full on Lipstick (Sydney) and over it the Buxom Full on Lip cream (white Russian).
