I have always had a love for getting ready, dressing up, and putting on a little makeup. With that being said, I also love natural and simple beauty. My everyday makeup routine perfectly shows both my love for makeup and natural beauty. I really love the products that I use and am happy to share them with you. Hopefully, this will help if you are looking for anything in these categories.
I have one of those faces where the more I put on it, the worse it looks. I guess that is a good thing so my face makeup is really easy and not a lot. When I want something really light I have been using the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. This is more of a tinted moisturizer or BB cream than a foundation and I love that it is not so heavy on my skin. I have freckles as well and do not like to cover them up. This just feels nice on the skin, leaves it feeling dewy and fresh, and has SPF 30 (I still use sunscreen as well though since I have really light skin).
Again, another Bare Minerals product here and this is the Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. I love this concealer because as the name states it is like a serum and goes on the skin seamlessly. This stuff is complete coverage though so I use very little. Just under the eye, chin, nose, and a little on the forehead. I blend with a beauty blender and done. Recently I have just been using this and no BB cream. It works as enough coverage for me.
I’m the kind of person that likes to stick to one brand when doing my base makeup and the powder that I love is the Bare Minerals Ready Touch Up Veil ( a similar one linked). Their powders are great for mattifying the t-zone (the chin, nose, forehead area) and the under eyes so there is no creasing. I never get any creasing after using this and it has SPF as well which I thought was cool.
Both the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer and the NYX Cream Blush are newer purchases for me but I am loving them. The Butter Bronzer smells amazing. It smells like a tropical island and piña colada dream and the color is very light and natural. The NYX cream blush is natural as well and very pigmented. I use my beauty blender or a real techniques miracle complexion sponge and a light coat, that’s it. For highlight, I use good old Vaseline. I haven’t dived into the highlighted trend (I know, I know) but vaseline just works so well for me so I have stuck with it.
I use one thing on my eyes and that is it, mascara. I have used the Covergirl Lash Blast volume mascara (orange tube) for years! I love this stuff! It does not transfer to my under eyes and I had such bad luck with that before finding this one. It lasts forever and even when it dries out I still feel it performs really well. I use it in brown because it is more natural for me, but both colors perform equally well. Cannot go without this one.
