My Everyday Makeup Routine

by - Saturday, February 01, 2020

Believe it or not, despite the numerous times I wear palettes, I do have an everyday look that I gravitate towards when I don't feel like wearing a palette or if I literally have 10 minutes to run before I'm going to be late for work. Here are my essential for my everyday makeup look.

For eyes, I tend to stick to a single shadow, whether it comes in stick form, powder form, liquid form, or cream form. My personal favorite single shadows are the Milani Bella Eyes Gel-Infused Shadow (discontinued, womp womp)  in the shade Bella Champagne, which is the absolute perfect champagne as it doesn't lean too pink or too gold, as well as the Kiko Cream Crush Shadow (also discontinued, sob) in the shade Pearly Silver Rose, a beautiful rosy pink-infused silver which has sadly been discontinued, and all of the By Terry Ombre Blackstar shadow sticks that I own, which include Frozen Quartz, a pink-infused taupe, Bronze Moon, a cool toned bronze, and Misty Rock, a brown-toned grey. For liquid shadows, I absolutely love the Catrice Liquid Metal Cream Shadow (discontinued) in the shade Daily Dose of Rose, which is essentially a very pale rose gold, and the e.l.f. Aqua Beauty Molten Liquid Shadow in the shade Rose Gold, which is slightly more pink than the Catrice Liquid shadow.

I can't go without my cat eye flicks, so my eyeliner of choice really depends, but my favorites are the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in the shade Intense Black and the Nyx Epic Ink Liner. My mascara of choice doesn't really matter as mascara is just mascara, but so far my favorites include the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes mascara (I fully intend on getting a full size of this sometime), the Loreal Lash Paradise mascara, and the Catrice Glam & Doll mascara

Onto face: I always wear a powder foundation because it's knocking out your foundation and your setting powder in one, so I opt for my Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation or my BareMinerals Matte Mineral Foundation. For blush, I prefer something with a bit of sparkle so I don't have to wear highlighter, so my choices are going to be the Makeup Revolution Triple Baked Blush in Candy Queen of Hearts, the Milani Baked Blushes (my personal go tos are Berry Amore and Dolce Pink), or the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, the Laura Geller Baked Blush n Brighten, or the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush

The last step is lips. I usually like to use a balmy lipstick like the YSL Rouge Volupte Shines, a lipgloss (the Essence XXXL Lipglosses (discontinued), the Fresh Sugar Berry Lip Gloss Treatment (also discontinued), and the BareMinerals Buttercream Glosses are my personal favorites), or a tinted lip balm (the Fresh Sugar Lip Balms and the Butter London Plush Rush Lip Treatment are my personal favorites).
