Because I like to be done with my makeup in about 5 minutes…
My Current (Easy) Everyday Makeup Routine
I’ve never been a daily “full face” makeup kind of girl, you know? Obviously I love looking at the Kylie Jenners of the world (who do a full brow and contour daily), but I’m just waaaay too lazy for that. Sorry not sorry. I obviously switch up my products quite a bit since I’m constantly testing out new products, BUT the past week or so I’ve been using these products and, gotta say, I’m pretty, pretty into them.
Full disclosure I’ve been using this mascara on and off for awhile, but that’s because it’s truly one of my all-time favorites. The intensely black, volumizing mascara does a best-in-class job of lifting, darkening and separating my lashes and there’s zero flaking through out the day. I even bought a mini size version for travel 🙂
I was never a makeup setting spray user until I tried Kristofer’s version, believe me. His is great because it doesn’t make your face feel too wet and your makeup really WILL lock in place until you fully wash it off.
I’ve blogged about this baby before, too. My lip dryness has been better since I started exfoliating more often (and using lip oils), but this version from YSL is currently a staple in my purse. The lip tint is super lightweight and instantly melts into your lips; plus, it’s infused with a blend of four essential oils for deep hydration: apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. Oh, and I should also mention it’s not sticky at all – usually the worst thing about lip products!
I’ve blogged about this product a few times actually. It’s pretty much the best at creating a radiant and dewy look around my eyes and down my nose. I frequently use it to “strobe” and get TONS of compliments when I do. You can read a recent review on my Instagram here. 🙂
I love nothing more than a deep, dark eyeliner that, of course, doesn’t smudge or run down my face. This version from Pixi is my current go-to because it’s waterproof (yep, even in my waterline!), smudge-proof and generally just goes on like SILK (hence the name).
Buxom Fire & Frost Eyeshadow Palette
Ok, so this was actually part of a limited-edition holiday kit, BUT you can customize a similar palette here, which I love. I’d choose neutral colors (for every day) and then a black and maybe a fun purple or blue for when you want to go a little crazy.
This full-coverage foundation is IT. SPF 50 for wrinkle prevention? Check. I go between the Fair and Light shades (I prefer Light, but I’m probably technically Fair, lol) and it does an amazing job at covering up any redness or blemishes on your face. Oh, and did I mention that it’s also formulated with an advanced anti-aging serum made of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, vitamins, and antioxidants that work in harmony to visually diminish the look of wrinkles and pores? Yep, I love nothing more than makeup that has a skincare focus.
