Today I am sharing my go to makeup routine! I'm kind of a product junkie so I've tried them ALL and this is what I've found works best for me. A lot of these products are Allure Beauty Award Winners and I always feel like they nail it with the best picks!
Foundation- IT Cosmetics Illuminating CC Cream in light/medium-stays on all day, a little goes a long way, hides all imperfections and redness. I'm trying the matte version of this for summer since I get pretty oily/shiny.
Concealer- IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye in light/medium-you only need the tiniest amount to hide dark circles. I also use IT cosmetics bye bye breakout for spot treatment.
Setting Powder- I use Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder under my eyes and her all over Translucent Powder on my face-these both keep everything in place. A must for oily skin like mine.
Blush- Becca Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Flower Child-I like something pinky peach and glowy-this is one of my all time favorites I've found.
Bronzer- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in Medium-I love a good matte bronzer that stays put since my blush has highlighter in it. This one is not orange at all and great for countering cheekbones and I use it around my hairline.
Eyes- Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Palette. If I wear eye makeup this is it- I love the bronzy/ mauve colors to make my eyes pop when I need a little something extra
If I wear eyeliner- I only use Lancome Artliner in Black- stays put all day and I just use a little bit on my top lash line to make my lashes look thicker.
Mascara- I swear by Too Faced Better Than Sex. I've been using this for a couple years now and I apply a couple coats after I curl my lashes to give the longest lashes possible! I get asked all the time if I have lash extensions when I actually take the time to put on mascara :) I use Rodan and Fields Lash Serum regularly too I should mention.
Brows- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Taupe and Benefit Gimme Brow in warm golden blonde. Love this combo- still natural looking but just makes the brows a little more defined.
Lips- Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Pillow Talk is the best pink nude liner and I pair it with one of her Hot Lips Lipstick- my go to colors are Pillow Talk, Liv It Up and Kidman Kiss. I love pinky/ peach/ nude tones for my lips for a little color but still natural. Top it off with Dior Lip Maximizer Gloss in light pink for a glossy finish but I typically leave my lips matte for longer wear.
If I'm not wearing lipstick I usually have on either Sugar Lip Balm in Petal or Dior Lip Glow in Rosewood or Coral.
Sunscreen- I swear by Goop Glow Oil in 50 and Moroccan Oil Sunscreen in 50- both of these go on clear which I love and provide the best protection while smelling good! I use Shisheido 50 on my face. SPF 50 head to toe always!
Masks- Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and Water Sleeping Mask- I'm obsessed with these. I use both every night and wake up with the softest lips and hydrated glowy skin. This mask is great for oily skin too-hydrating without being too heavy.
Brushes- I switched to the Sephora Brand makeup brushes and you can't beat the price or quality!
Beauty Blender- I apply concealer and my cc cream with my fingertips then blend really well with my beauty blender.
Lash Curler- I always curl my lashes to give an extra amount of volume to my lashes before applying mascara.
Hair- IF I do take the time to blow dry and curl my hair (It's rare these days I'll be honest) I only use the T3 Hair Dryer and 1.5" Curling Iron. These are definitely investment items but worth it since they will last forever and are not damaging to your hair.
