I would be lying if I say that I don’t love makeup. To be honest, that’s one of my favorite things to do. I work a 9-5 job, and as much as I would like to do a full face of makeup, I feel is not always appropriate. So I try to keep my everyday makeup as simple as possible. Today I wanted to share with you guys my everyday makeup routine- all drugstore products. You all know I’m a girl on a budget, so needless to say, most of my makeup products are very affordable.
I never do my makeup without a primer. That really sets a great canvas for you to work your magic. Because I have oily skin I always have to use a matte primer for whenever I want my makeup to last all day long. My favorite one is this L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Lock Primer. This if one of the few primers that will actually last al most all day. I have really really oily skin, so personally I don’t think there’s a primer that will keep me matte all day long without me having to blot or refresh my face with powder. But this one here is one of the best ones I’ve tried.
For the longest time I used foundation all day everyday, see my favorites here. And to be honest, I don’t think I have to wear foundation everyday. So I started to use this Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-In-1 Skin Perfector and let me tell you is one of my favorite finds! This does exactly what I need for an everyday use. It has a little tint to it so it balances my skin tones and reduces my redness completely. It makes such a difference and to great part to it is that you still look very natural. This does wears off throughout the day, but for my everyday when I know I’m going straight home from work, I don’t mind.
If there’s something I really hate is to have my under eyes looking really dry. I don’t have that big of a problem on my under eyes, so I really don’t use heavy concealers that much. My absolute favorite is the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Concealer. This has such a great finish to it! It gives me the coverage I need and it last all day long. What I don’t like about this concealer is the fact that if you apply it very close to your eyes, it can burn a little. So be mindful of that if you use it. But other than that, this concealer in my favorite!
For me, this is the best way to set your concealer. Either just applying it on your under eye or to bake. For my everyday makeup routine, I only set my concealer. I like to keep the rest of the face dewy and glowy as possible. Makes my makeup look more natural. Normally I use the Coty Airspun Airspun Loose Face Powder, Translucent. This powder makes your face look flawless. I use the unscented one because that has a very particular smell to it. So if you come across that one, please buy it! 🙂
I’ve come a long way with this one. For so long I never touched my brows, I don’t really have that much hair so I never wanted to plug them or do anything with them. Basically I was scared of having a really bad experience going somewhere to do my brows. Practice make the world of a difference, and YouTube of course! Currently I’m using the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer. This brand is killing it! I’ve tried using different types of tips for my brows and what works best for my type of brows is the definer pencil. This type helps me create the shape that I want and still make it look natural.
This if my favorite part of this everyday makeup routine. I have fair skin so making my face look a little bronzed up is always a good thing. When I bronze like to mix two different Wet n Wild products that work amazing together. I use the Wet n Wild MegaGlo Contouring Palette (I love both sides BTW) and the Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer. The Countouring palatte is very matte, which helps with of course the contouring, and the Color Icon Bronzer has a certain shine that will make your face glow. They both are super affordable and work amazingly.
OMG these Wet N Wild Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushes are super pigmented! A little goes such a long way with these. I just dab my brush a little in the pan and tap the excess out. Slightly apply it in circular motion on my cheeks. I believe blush is one of those products that you can never miss, it gives your face the color it needs to be complete.
To have super black full lashes without the falsies I mix the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer and the L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara. This is the greatest combo! After I curl my lashes I apply these and OMG what a difference it makes. My lashes look very full and voluminous (duh). This mascara is an oldie but a goodie.
I love nude lips, it makes the entire look feel a little bit more natural. This time I’m wearing the L’Oreal Paris X Balmain Paris Lipstick. I’m not a liquid lipstick kind of girl, so you’ll always see me either with lipstick or with a gloss. The creamier the better because I have dry lips. This one here has an amazing color and the creaminess is great. The are on the pricier side tho… but it is worth it!
The final and most important step of all if you want to make your makeup last all day long! And since I have oily skin I need all the matte I can get 🙂 This Wet n Wild Photo Focus Matte Finish Setting Spray is such a great product for an amazing affordable price. It get’s the job done. This is one of the products I wake with me in my bag, check out my favorites here, to refresh my face every so often.
