My Go-To Makeup Routine!

Over many years and with a lot of trial and error, I think I’ve finally perfected my makeup routine. I love wearing a natural dewy look, with most of the attention drawn to my eyes. A lot of the styles and techniques that I’ve implemented in my routine were suggested by model makeup artists, Tik-Tok and Pinterest.

While I occasionally try new looks or products, for the most part, these are my staples for my everyday makeup!

Before I apply makeup, I always wash and moisturize my face.

Recently, I’ve been loving the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream instead of foundation. It has a very sheer tint (it definitely doesn’t cover my rosy cheeks), which is nice for a more natural look. However, when I do want more coverage, I love the Revlon 24 hour Foundation for combination skin. This line has a range of foundations for different skin types: oily, combination and dry.

Next, I use the NYX HD Concealer under my eyes and on blemishes. This concealer blends right in with the BB cream or foundation and has medium coverage. This is one of the best drugstore concealers I’ve tried as far as coverage and price; however, it only has 13 shades and two of them are color correctors.

Another comparable drugstore concealer with a better range of shades is the L.A. Girl HD concealer.

For blush, I use the Milani baked blush in the shade Luminoso – a bright coral color with gold shimmer. I put this on the apples of my cheeks and nose, making it look kind of like a natural sunburn.

Keeping with the natural sun kissed look, I apply my Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer to my cheekbones and temples. I used to apply this in the hollows of my cheeks (like contour), but I learned from Tik-Tok that that technique makes your face look dragged down.

I top it off with my Elf baked highlighter in the shade Moonlight Pearls on top of my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose.

Eyes

My go-to eyeshadow is usually just something natural that matches my face makeup. Sometimes I just apply my bronzer to my crease and my highlight to my inner corner, but when I feel more motivated to use actual eyeshadow, I love the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette. It has many natural gold and brown shades, as well as deep red and warm-toned shades.

Next, I draw on a wing with my Maybelline felt tip eyeliner pen and extend it into a point on my inner corner. This eyeliner makes doing precise wings so easy and the pen lasts forever!

I then curl my lashes and apply the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara. This lengthening mascara can be as natural or voluminous as you want it— I usually just do one or two coats.

Also, this month you can find some of these mascaras in Target stores with a free Essie nail polish included! I found mine on a display at the end of an aisle in the makeup section rather than the L’Oreal section.

For eyebrows, I use the Elf eyebrow pencil and make a feathered brow with my clear Maybelline great lash mascara.

Lips

I always hydrate my lips throughout the day with lip balm.

Recently, I’ve been loving the Burt’s Bees pomegranate tinted lip balm. When I want to go a step further, I use the Wet N Wild zodiac lip gloss collection. It just so happens that the shade for my sign (Taurus) is almost identical to the blush I use!

Here is a mini Tik-Tok tutorial for this look!
