My Everyday Makeup

I like to keep my everyday makeup quick, simple, and light. When wearing makeup on an everyday basis I try to keep it natural and lightweight. I still want a full coverage effect but without having to layer on products after products.

I love a full coverage flawless face and actually enjoying taking over an hour to apply my makeup. It's the highlight of my day but lets be real, your everyday makeup routine shouldn't take over 30 minuets and consist of 20+ products.

I have created a list of my favorite everyday makeup must haves for a fast and pretty flawless look. Considering I'm a makeup connoisseur and love LOVE love makeup, I have to say these have passed my expectations with flying colors!!! and I'm happy to share my favorites.

Benefit The POREfessional: This oil free pore minimizer/primer is a HUGE must have for a flawless face. POREfessional is actually the foundation for your foundation! This primer helps minimize the appearance of pores and leaves your skin feeling super smooth.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation: This is my holy grail foundation. I cannot stress how much I  LOVE this foundation! Lets just say that it's SO good I am willing to pay its hefty price tag of $38 dollars for it to be an "everyday" foundation. This stuff is so creamy, dense, and light weight almost like a mousse texture. This foundation works fantastic with any skin type, and comes packed with a "skin smart" technology that adjusts to meet and address your skin care needs.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer: This concealer comes in a twist up pen applicator. It's a medium to full coverage concealer with a creamy consistency thats very blendable. The creamy consistency works great for under eye circles. You can also apply it anywhere you want a luminous glow.

MAC Blush in Welldressed: This is the perfect pink blush for everyday use in my opinion its not to dark not to light and gives off that nice healthy flush of pink to the apples of your cheeks.

Tarte Brow Architect: One of Tartes newest products, I've been using it a little over a month and have really enjoying it. It's a 3 in 1 that includes a brow pencil, foundation powder with smudger applicator, and spoolie. This brow pencil is great because after you fill in your brows and comb them out you can your the powder foundation to trace the outer part of the brows to make them more defined, which will leave you the perfect brows.

Benefit Eye Bright: This very light pastel pink pencil can make any tired girl look wide awake! I love this pencil because I have smaller asian eyes and I get the "are you tired" question all the time even when I'm not! Mostly because my eyes are small and my lashes short and stubby, however using this pencil in my inner tear duct and water line instantly gives me a pick me up!

Benefit They're Real Mascara: This mascara completes my everyday eye makeup by adding length, volume, and curl while lifting and separating the lashes.

Maybelline Color Whisper Tinted Lip Balm: These lip balms are great for a tint of color with the shine of gloss. These are great if your looking for something a little more hydrating then your average lipstick.

Well that completes my everyday makeup routine! Hope you enjoyed :)

From one makeup addicted to another,
xoxo

  2. SO Jealous of your tarte foundation. I've been eyeing, but I can;t justify buying it until I've used up my old one.

    1. get a sample from sephora! its amazing, great for oily skin. If you do end up wanting to purchase it i recommend getting it off of QVC they recently came out with the "Tarte Journey to Natural Beauty 6-pc Collection with Bag" its $65 but the foundation alone is $38 so for and extra $27 you get a lipstick, brow pencil, blush, mascara, foundation brush, and bag.

  16. There are many ways to reduce the size of a pest infestation.
    You may not know it, but they could be living, growing, and multiplying
    right under your nose. Also check caulk and grout seals on windows and in bathrooms around
    pipes, toilets, appliances and any wires that come through the walls.
