SHOP THE POST
Happy Wednesday, loves! Last Saturday I did my first Instagram Live ever and shared with y’all my every day make up routine and throughout the day I received a TON of questions and comments! It made my little beauty loving heart so happy that y’all were interested in how I get myself ready, I never take myself too seriously and it was so fun to see that y’all wanted to know more! So I figured to make it easier for everyone I finally put together a post of what my must haves are and how I apply each product. I’m aware this post is waaaayyyy over due, but better late than never right?! I’m going to walk you through each step and explain to you on how I use each product below! Remember, make up is supposed to be fun and not stressful. Not every product works the same for me as it does for someone else, but I hope I can help you find what you’re looking for to up your make up routine!
I pump at least two drops of this primer into my hands and then apply all over my face. It smells amazing and I love that it’s lightweight. It’s best for combination skin.
After my primer has dried and set in to my skin, I swipe a few lines across my cheeks, forehead, down the bridge of my nose, and chin. Warning: you’re going to look crazy but this foundation blends in like a dream so don’t fret! I use color Sunjab.
I use this brush to blend in my foundation. I’ve literally had this brush for three years and it is my all time favorite. It blurs every line and “melts” your make up in to your skin.
Step 4: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
This is one of my favorite concealers…like ever. I use color Fair and it covers any blemish and my hideous under eye circles. I apply it under my eyes, I fan it out between my eyebrows, down my nose, and the center of my chin. I use this to blend it in and I always use it damp.
Rule of thumb when applying make up, creams before powders! If you don’t, you’re going to be a cakey mess. After I apply my primer, foundation, and concealer, I apply this with a multipurpose large brush. It truly makes my skin look like I’m wearing airbrush foundation. It’s a little pricey but totally worth the splurge.
Step 5: Ben Nye Luxury Banana Powder
I use this banana powder to set my under eye and I go over where I applied concealer. It’s super cheap and lasts forever and ever.
I take a large fan brush and apply this bronzer along my cheek bones, around my hair line, and down my neck. I use the medium shade and it’s so pretty in person!
I apply the blush on the apples of my cheeks and then I take the Rose Gold highlighter and apply above my cheek bones, above my eyebrows, and down my nose.
Step 8: Laura Mercier Setting Powder
After I do my brows, eyeshadow, and mascara, I apply this setting powder all over.
